Blogs I love: as well as spending lots of time working on my own blog, there are also heaps of great blogs out there that I love to read, so I thought I’d share a few that I reckon you might enjoy having a read of too…

Simone Loves Makeup
I used to work for Simone in Dubai – she’s a lovely Irish lass living there  who blogs about all things beauty and fashion with lifestyle and other fun stuff thrown in too. If you want to keep up with latest trends in beauty and to know which products are worth spending your cash on then you should definitely take a look. She also has a super fun YouTube channel with videos of beauty stuffs, her life in general and all sorts of entertaining shiznit.

Marc and Angel Hack life
This is a lovely blog to read with loads of inspirational posts and ideas and tips on everything from personal wellbeing to relationships, productivity and loads more – life hacks if you will!

Tea Was Here
This is one that I found really recently and makes a great fun read. There’s loads of stuff about travel destinations and tips which I really enjoy, but there’s also just loads of other fun and unique loosely travel related stuff in between that also grabs my interest and makes for a very entertaining read.

The Family Adventure Project
I really like this blog as it proves that having kids doesn’t mean you can’t still travel and do all the adventurous things you once did! Featuring loads of tips on travelling with a family including planning and practicalities for the journey, best adventure travel kit and great articles on places to visit and how to keep everyone happy on both long trips and (much!) more adventurous trips too.

Mum of Boys
The lovely Simone of the above Simone Loves Make Up put me onto this blog – Louise also lives in Dubai and blogs about her life with her two boys after becoming frustrated that most other parenting websites focused on things for girls. I really enjoy her style of writing and find there’s loads of interesting topics (for mums of both boys and girls), and often with hilarious, laugh out loud moments as she recounts her experiences.

A Beautiful Mess
This blog by two sisters shares all sorts of different things on a whole range of different topics – recipes, DIY creative fixes around the house and general ‘I can do that too!’ cool kinds of creative stuff. They also have an online shop where they sell creative lessons to help you with various aspects of your blog along with a whole load of stationery they’ve designed. They also have the monthly ‘Happy Mail’ that you can sign up for and get a beautiful package of their unique stationery sent to you every month – I’ve actually been pondering purchasing this myself for a while since the range of cards and stationery available here in the UAE is often so boring and dull!

So that’s it for now, there are heaps more I also like to read but these are my current faves. Do take a look and come back to let me know what you think!
