Volume 4 of links to read.

Sharing the love in the blogging community is really important in my opinion, even though not all of the links I am sharing are from the original defitintion of ‘bloggers’. I mean Sali Hughes and Pandora Sykes are very far from bloggers but they are writers that I really admire and enjoy reading. If I can expose them to potential new fans then I am more than happy with that. Although I doubt there are many people who aren’t aware of either of these wonderful women or have not actually sat down and read an article from them. I could be wrong, it wouldn’t be the first time!

Pandora Sykes Pandora Sykes x Estée Lauder #ConfidenceUncovered

Not quiet one to read, more one to watch but once you have watched this video with Pandora Sykes and Estee Lauder you will no doubt take yourself to Google and search more articles by the lady herself. And so you should. Pandora Sykes is a really wonderful writer. Always honest, intelligent and poised in her style. She also makes up one half of one of my favourite podcasts – The High Low.

Sali Hughes for The Pool “In the age of retouching Instagram apps, “real” pictures of a woman’s body are newsworthy”

Sali Hughes. This woman is bloody brilliant. From her books Pretty Honest and Pretty Iconic, to the content she creates for Salihughesbeauty.com including posts and videos and not mention the articles she writes for The Guardian and The Pool amongst many others. They are all really wonderfully written and great, informative reads. What I really enjoyed about this article was that it really highlighted the fact that seeing an untouch image of a well known figure is important in 2017.

This Girls Does – Brehemia: The Launch

This Girls Does may be written by a friend of mine but that isn’t why she is on the list. Mairi creates content focuses on all of the wonderful things going on in Scotland, with an emphasis on Edinburgh. Brehemia is a new bar opened in the City which is absolutely bloody huge! What I enjoy about This Girls Does is the upbeat, chatty style of writing Mairi adopts. Reading her posts is like speaking to her in person.
