It’s time for another round-up of my favourite blogs. There are so many that I enjoy reading that I think this is going to become a monthly feature. There are blogs that make me laugh or that help me to feel like I’m not alone in struggling to be the mum I want to be. Others inspire me to be more creative or to be a better photographer, and some do all four!
As you can probably guess from the name, Janssen’s blog is predominantly about books. She curates really great reading lists, including this Christmas themed list. Janssen is also a mum to two little girls, with another one on the way, and she and her family have temporarily relocated to London from the States. Her recent posts have been about exploring what London has to offer for kids.
Jess is mum to the beautiful Rosalie. Her blog is filled with delicious recipes and crafty makes as well as excellent parenting advice such as this list of essential baby items. Jess has also set herself a baking challenge to make all 219 recipes in Mary Berry’s Baking Bible.
Jenna is one half of the team behind the Happy Days linky and is a mum to a lovely little girl called Jasmine. Her blog is a refreshing take on life as a mum and she’s not afraid to admit that sometimes motherhood can be really tough but she also sees the funny side to being a mum. Her latest post The Alternative ‘Baby’s 1st Christmas’ Gift Guide is a perfect example of how bonkers parenthood can sometimes be.
Sammy’s blog is a series of letters to her daughter, nicknamed Cocopops. Sammy writes beautifully about her daughter’s milestones and the funny things she says and does as well as glimpses into how her own life has changed now that she’s a mum. Her recent post on what you don’t expect after the baby is born really made me laugh as it was spot on!
Katy is the other half of the Happy Days team. Her blog’s tagline is ‘A mother’s honest view on life’ and that’s exactly what it is. As a mum to two girls Katy isn’t afraid to be honest about the realities of motherhood but also she writes about finding the joy in it too.
