TOP 10 MUMMY BLOGS

This month I’ve been sharing my favourite blogs in a bid to inspire you to create your own blog reading lists for 2016.  I have to admit, in this category I’ve had a little help from our Little B writers, who are far more qualified on the subject of parenting than me.  So for mama’s and mama’s-to-be these are our Top 10 Mummy blog must-reads… Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone but I’ll be adding them to my feed too, as they’re filled with style ideas, female-friendly advice, recipes and inspiration for us non-mama’s too!

A CUP OF JO

bloved-baby-blog-little-b-top-10-mummy-blogs-a-cup-of-joMama-of-two Joanna Goddard earned her fashion credentials growing up in France before moving to New York and working in fashion and lifestyle journalism before taking her weekly blog, A Cup of Jo, full-time.  Of course being based in New York with her two young boys Jo’s life seems incredibly polished, but she also tackles the nitty-gritty parenting stuff too – like how to get your kids to eat their greens!

LITTLE SPREE

This mummy blog is so simple, and that’s what makes it so clever.  It’s the best online resource for time-strapped fashion-conscious mums who want to dress their kids (and themselves) beautifully – without breaking the bank! Editor Sarah Clarke cleverly mixes high-street with the occasional splurge, and only shares items she genuinely loves. In fact, most pieces are already worn by her own kids or someone in her team!

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
