Blog Love #4
This weeks Blog Love is dedicated to one of my new favourite bloggers. In case you are new to my blog, Blog Love is a new feature that I have started in which I showcase some of my favourite bloggers, after all the best way I find to hear about new blogs is through trusted blogs I read. So far we have had some rather fabulous blogs who I have been reading for a while so I thought it was about time for a blog that was new to my reading list.
If you haven't done so already meet Bryony from Love Bryony.
I have only been reading Bryony's blog for a few months but I was immediately drawn in as her daughter Francesca is only a couple of months older than Mads. And is gorgeous but that is another matter entirely. I then started reading more about Bryony and soon found that we seemed quite similar- in fact her intro could have been written about me. Bar the Long Island Iced Tea part, I am more a mojito kind of girl!
Here is a little more about Bryony...
Tell us a little about your blog.
I've been blogging sporadically since I found out that Francesca was on the way in spring 2010, but I started this blog right at the end of my pregnancy. We've recently bought our dream house so I'm really into writing about all things interiors at the moment, but the main emphasis is on our gorgeous 15 month old daughter Francesca!
What do you love about blogging?
I love having somewhere to 'splurge' my brain - sometimes I'll be so proud of Frankie that telling everyone I know isn't enough... so I tell the whole internet aswell! It's just fab to have my own little corner of the internet. I also love the community, in the newborn days I would spend the night time feeds on twitter talking to lots of other lovely mummy bloggers which was a total life saver!
What blogs are you loving at the moment?
I'm Counting UFOs- This has been a firm favourite since I first 'found' parenting blogs. Steph is an amazing crafter, plus the butternut squash risotto recipe on her blog is now my favourite dinner!
More Than Toast- Alice's old blog was the first parenting blog I came across. She still updates about her gorgeous little girl Elfie (plus number 2 on its way!) but she also blogs about amazing food and her beautiful home!
Mummy, Daddy and Me Makes Three- (Obviously!) I only came across Katie's blog at the end of last year; I don't know how I missed it before! I love any blogger who's as attached to their camera as much as I am and it's lovely to see her little girl grow up as she's only a few weeks younger than Fran.
What inspires you?
Cheesy as it sounds – Francesca. She is amazing and she astounds me every single day with all the new things she learns, and obviously if it wasn't for her I wouldn't have my blog. All the other bloggers and twitters I talk to almost every day inspire me too – parenting is such an amazing job but it's also really hard and everyone has their struggles.
What five things couldn't you live without?
Family – Dean and Francesca make every single day fun (and challenging!) and I wouldn't have my life any other way.
iPhone – I wouldn't know what to do without the camera and constant access to Twitter and Instagram.
My Bath! – I love having a bath and after a tough day all I want to do is sink into bubbles.
Candles – Thanks to never ending nappies and our cat I almost always have a candle on the go, I love to have my house smelling beautiful.
Coffee Machine – Me and Dean treated ourselves to a coffee machine just before Frankie was born, I love our 'VIP coffees' on weekend mornings!
Your favourite post?
It's a hard one but I think it was this really recent one Flashback Friday- My 21st Birthday. It was so much fun to write and I loved looking through old photos.
So there is a little bit more about Bryony. If you haven't visited her blog before do go and say hi, she is very lovely and I am sure you will enjoy her blog just as much as I do.
