#7 Blog Posts I Have Loved This Week

I know this picture doesn't actually relate to this post at all but ya know, why not show off my dog and show you what I'm snacking on, because I'm sure that's mega exciting for you all. Also I couldn't get a decent picture of me actually reading blog posts so this kinda just has to do. 

Anyways, I have a new favourite thing of sitting in the garden to catch up on blog posts that I have missed throughout the week. I do have to sit about an inch from the back door or I lose the internet connection and then I just get mad when things don't load- Virgin Media is not the one. Regardless I like feeling at one with nature, even if I have collected around 12 gnat bites since Monday. 

I wanted to share a little bit of the love on here as I've been blogging for over a month now and I'm learning to realise more and more each day how bloomin' lovey the blogging community really is. Seriously, everyone is so supportive of each other and it's so amazing to be a part of. I keep coming across posts that deserve so much more recognition and attention than what they are getting, posts that have inspired me, comforted me and made me feel a little more human. I love makeup and pretty shoes but I also love things I can relate to and these wonderful bloggers really helped do that this week. 

So here you go, check out these BEAUTIFUL people!

This sums me up in a nutshell, I recently spoke out about my anxiety and how driving soothes me and relaxes my mind, yeah that has definitely not always been the case. I used to be a right little stress head on the road and I know you are kind of just expected to get on with it when you do pass your test but it's refreshing to know that not everyone can be that fearless. 

I love this post, it hit a nerve so much I spontaneously bought me and my best friend tickets to see The 1975 in December just because I know it's something she really wants to do and I love her. I guess it made me remember how lucky I am to have my best friend live just 15 minutes away. SO yeah, go and give your best mate a hug. 

Who doesn't love a sassy little list post to make you chuckle and make you realise we literally all think the exact same.

The one for when you feel a bit crappy about how many cheese burgers you may have eaten or how you hate the way your legs look like stumpy tree trunks, you know those days when you just feel meh. This will make you feel like a beautiful sassy woman.

If you've just broken up with someone or been dumped then seriously read this, it's made me feel a little less pathetic. It also made me realise that it's not just me who is slightly terrified of being alone. 

As someone who hasn't gone to University I love stumbling across posts that highlight how you DON'T need to get a degree to be successful. Mostly because it makes me feel a little less of a failure for having not gone, but it also inspires me, if they can do it, so can we. 

This really gave me an interesting insight into how people with chronic illnesses cope with being judged on social media. I have anaemia which I wouldn't say has a hugely destructive impact on my life but it can be frustrating when people don't understand it, just because you can't see it, it doesn't mean it isn't there.
