Day 4 - Five Fave Blogs

Day 4 of rosalilium’s 'blog every day in May' challenge
Five Fave Blogs

(Share the blog love! Tell us about five blogs you love and why?)
Having read lots of other people's day 4 #BEDM posts, I feel exactly the same about today's blog topic - it's incredibly hard to choose just five!
One of the first blogs I started reading a few years ago was Elizabeth's lovely rosalilium blog and I've followed it ever since, picking up many more fabulous reads along the way. So it goes without saying that rosalilium is definately a blog I love and therefore I'm not going to include it in my five.
Now I'm only a trainee blogger; duck in a dress is only a few weeks old and still very much a work in progress. I'd been toying with the idea of blogging for a while and Elizabeth's blog and the five blogs I've chosen were (and still are) all inspirational in giving me the confidence to start up my own little piece of the interweb. As a lot of bloggers said, "just give it a go and see what happens!"
So, in no particular order...
Beautiful Clutter blog
Beautiful Clutter - by Jem.
I love Jem's photography, how she manages to make even the smallest little thing look stunning. If only my pictures were half as good as hers! She also has a keen eye for vintage finds and often turns up treasures that I remember from my childhood or from visiting my grandparents.
essbeevee blog
Essbeevee - by Sarah
Sarah has such pretty dresses and it may sound weird, but I also love her current hair colour! Lots of photographs filled with happiness and writing filled with warmth and humour.
Mathilde heart Manech blog
Mathilde heart Manech - by Lisa
My weekly (aspirational) to-do list comes in the form of Lisa's "5 Positive Things to Do This Week" Monday morning blog post. Lots of lovely tips as well - films to watch, bags to buy and things to do.
Queenie & The Dew blog
Queenie & The Dew - by Sally
Sally's lifestyle blog is always an interesting read with pretty photos and also quite a few tips for blogging. Great fashion sense and lovely clothes wishlists as well.
Miss Beatrix  blog
Miss Beatrix - by Anna
Home of the fabulous #Post Circle with creative crafting, delicious recipes, vintage things and lots of tea. A perfect read to inspire your creative side!
There is of course, lots and lots more blogs I could list and I took me quite a while just to narrow it down to these five. If you fancy it, please check out my Blog Roll for many more beautiful blogs.


  1. I love Mathilde hearts Manech as well. I love this challenge so many cool new blogs to check out!

    Thanks for sharing :)

    1. I know, Lisa has such a lovely blog! I'm loving #BEDM as well - far too many fabulous blogs to discover though, I end up reading #BEDM posts at work and then realise I should actually be doing some proper paid work and not spending all day reading! :-) x

  2. I am now following all of the blogs you recommended. Thank you for your wonderful taste!

    1. Thank you - glad to have been of help! :-) x

  3. Thank you so much for the mention! Best go write tomorrows positive things! : )

    1. That's okay! Yours is one of my favourite blogs - I always look forward to your positive things list, brightens up my Monday morning at work! :-) x
