Beautiful pictures, #instagoals aesthetics, touching content, in-depth research are at the hearts of those Sunday Blog Reads favourites.
Picture this: it's Sunday morning, you are still in bed, you have waken up at a reasonable hour (and by that I mean not too early) and have a cup of coffee in hand - and maybe a croissant in the other. What's missing? A good entertaining read to quick-start your day and inspire you for the week ahead! Here are my personal favourites:
1. Home Decor Inspiration.
Kate La Vie lives in Glasgow and aside from her exquisite taste in fashion, she is also well-known online (especially Instagram and Pinterest) for her charming appartment and extraordinary taste in home decor. Her blog is full of the latest updates on her living situation (as well as pictures of her cats, dog and outfits.)
2. Lifestyle & Family-goals.
Elsie Larson is the co-founder of company "A Beautiful Mess". A family enterprise where sisters Elsie and Emma "share home decor projects, recipes, crafts, natural beauty, and lots of random bits of our life in the Midwest." An absolute minegold if you are looking for your next DIY project. However, it is Elsie's personal family blog, The Larson House, which I found cliking away at most weekends. Elsie and her husband adopted Nova just a year ago and she shared the whole process in a very genuine and inspiring away. Love pours out of every single article and picture: a heart-warming one that will give you all the feels.
3. The Cultural Edit.
This one is a little bit more serious but oh-so worth your time. Brainpickings is Maria Popova's labour of love. Flicking through the blog pages, you will find in-depth reviews of Maria's latest (and varied) reads. Her personal taste for beautiful illustrations makes for visually pleasing articles while her care for truly well-researched content fosters truly captivating reads. Take a look at the 2017 best of Brainpickings to get an idea of Maria's writing or have a read of one my personal favourites: The Art of Being Alone: May Sarton’s Stunning 1938 Ode to Solitude.
4. Fashion Icon Spotted.
Megan Ellaby is everything I want to be when I grow-up. Her sense of style is colourful, bold...in a word fearless. Inspired by the 60s and 70s, she puts a modern twist on her icons' outfits (David Bowie is a recurring presence) and wows with unexpected, on-point combos. If you feel like you're stuck in a fashion rut, this one will make you want to shaken up your whole wardrobe.
