Three blogs you should be reading

Hello weekend lovelies!

I want to share the love and start doing some posts about some of my favourite blogs.

Firstly there's Louise from Polka Spots and Freckle Dots.

Louise has disk injuries to her back and spends an awful lot of time bed-bound in extreme pain, but despite this she writes a fantastic blog. I particularly enjoy her Wednesday Wishlist posts and Serendipity Sunday posts. The former will make you want to rob a bank to pay for all the pretties she'll show you, and the latter will make time magic away looking at all the gorgeous photos and clicking through to all the brilliant links Louise thoughtfully curates. It's a must read and an absolute feast for your eyes.

Secondly we have Laura from Tutus and Tiny Hats.

I hope you don't mind me borrowing your photo

Laura's wardrobe is the stuff of dreams. She dresses like I wanted to as a child - tutus, fancy head gear and lots and lots of jewellery. Not just does she remind me that fashion should be F-U-N (she also LOVES the colour pink - me too!) she collates wonderful links and images. On a Wednesday she collates fatshion outfits which have inspired her (she's truly inclusive - able and non able bodies, all races, all genders, all ages) and once a week (the days vary) she collates a mammoth list full of educational and interesting links covering subjects such as: fatshion, fat acceptance, climate and sustainability, jobs and the economy, and an 'everything else' section with oodles more things to read, look at or watch.

Laura is brilliant because her links open my eyes to issues I wouldn't find out about otherwise. I'm a white woman in a mostly white town but the world is a varied place and there is so much going on in it that doesn't get heard because they aren't 'white issues' or they aren't deemed 'important' by our almost entirely white, straight, old-man-owned news companies and newspapers. I want to know about feminist issues, and oppression faced by trans* & gay people, disabled people and people of colour, and all that and more is included in this truly inclusive blog. With the www we are a global village and if there's injustice going on in the world, we need to know so we can call it out and demand change. Through Laura's blog and Tumblr (it's not just for porn, honest!) I have a much broader world view and I can honestly say it's made me a better person. Plus, I really need to do an all-pink Laura inspired outfit post!

Lastly we have Amanda from Voyage of the MeeMee.

Voyage of the Mee Mee

A while back Amanda asked for a little advice on starting a blog and I told her to go for it. As soon as I read her very first post I knew she had a gift, and that gift is comedy with a huge dose of TMI. I wondered why she hadn't started a blog a looong time before, because she creases me up with her natural talent. She says the things out loud which you really want to, but can't, like how you might like the smell of your own farts, and stuff like that. She also has a really cute dog called Johnny Cakes, and she idolises that cute little fucker like he sprang out of her own vagina. See, I can't help but fall into Amanda-style writing when I think of her. Go have a read, and whatever you do, don't dare take a drink while you're reading - I guarantee it'll end up snorted all over your laptop or monitor.

Who's YOUR favourite blogger? I mean, other than meeeeeeee, of course. ;) Let us know in the comments. I'm always looking for more reading material and other people might find some gems too.

Thanks for reading, and let me know if you want a regular series of these posts.
