I’m a little bit late with this post for September, as everything has been manic with BlogOn and then BlogCamp plus being ill in between the two events. However here are my five favourite blog posts from other bloggers for September 2017.
All posts that I have read in the last month and loved for one reason or another.
Mel at Le Coin De Mel
I recently read this post from Mel – The Best Strawberry Cake Recipe Ever: Le Fraisier – and I am in total awe over this cake. It’s just beautiful, as is Mel’s photography as always! Despite my complete lack of cooking skills, I think I really need to have a go at making this soon. I was lucky enough to finally meet Mel recently – twice and it truly was a pleasure.
Cathy at Mummy Travels
Cathy constantly makes me jealous with her travel posts and in fact her travels! Her blog is full of beautiful photos of different countries, but my favourite post of hers recently is actually a UK-based on – An Instagram Walk on London’s South Bank. As part of the Britmums conference this year Cathy led an Instagram walk around London and the photos are just stunning.
I love how quirky some of the things that you can find are and it makes me want to pay more attention when I walk around the towns of Cornwall, as usually my camera only comes out for the seascapes. Cathy shows how wonderful cities and towns can actually be for original looking images though.
Nyomi at Nomipalony
Nyomi’s post that I loved is 8 Reasons to Get Excited About Autumn. Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, Cornwall is a lot quieter, the clothes you wear are so much cosier and more flattering than in the summer and all the leaves turn beautiful colours. This is one of those posts that is pretty much identical to my own thoughts. LOVE AUTUMN … I think you worked that out though.
By the way if you don’t follow Nyomi on Instagram then you really should, her Insta stories are brilliant. So honest, usually hilarious and she has such a fab accent. Click below and it should take you to visit her.

Welcome October, goodbye September. 👋🏻 We’ve started the month off with a random man scaling our garden fence and sitting on our wheeley bins which was a bit bizarre! 😳👀 September was a good month, dominated by Arlo’s return to school, Grandpapa Ginge getting married, the @northernblogawards, Lena going to sleep in her own bed twice and the official start of Autumn. 🍂🍁 I’m excited about October where we’ll have some family birthdays, @disneyonice and we are eating out every weekend! And of course HALLOWEEN! 👻 Hopefully we’ll have fewer odd men climb my garden fence #notaeuphemism
Beth at Twinderelmo
I love Beth’s post 30 Pumpkin Ideas for Halloween! I weirdly only carved my first pumpkin a couple of years ago and it was a seriously messy job yuck, but so much fun. I might be persuaded by the boys to get another one this year and try to be a bit more adventurous with our carving after reading Beth’s post! She’s ace by the way, so go visit and follow her everywhere … erm except not in person as that’s stalking.
Last but not least – these are never in any sort of order, they’re random and jumbled much like myself:
Nat at Plutonium Sox
I love the post – Learning to swim with Rebecca Adlington and Baby Annabell – on Natalie’s blog! Not because I’m a huge doll fan, but because it just goes to show how amazing this blogging malarky is. It isn’t every day that you get invited to swim with Rebecca Adlington and it really is amazing the opportunities that blogging gives not only to us as bloggers, but especially to our children.
Seriously blogging is the best – I may still be on a post conference, post hanging out on a cruise ship high though.
