Currently Reading: Blogger Edition #1

As I'm currently away enjoying myself in France, I thought I'd share 10 of the bloggers who I've really been enjoying at the moment - new reads and some old favourites too!
1. Alix at I Covet Thee

Alix's blog is one of my newest favourites, a lovely mix of outfit posts, product reviews and weekly roundups. Her layout is fantastic, and her photos are so clear. She's only been blogging since March, I can't wait to see what she does next!
2. Doinac at Golden Diamonds

Aside from her fantastic styling and striking looks, Doniac's main ambitions are to develop the fashion industry in Moldova and become a politician - a girl after my own heart then! Her blog is truly international street style at its best. 

From as much of her personalty that comes over in her blog, Alice reminds me of a fantastic mix of my best friend and I. I was hooked from the first post of hers I read when she was professing her love for Mountain Dew. Her blog is quirky and fun, and a very refreshing alternative from the usual bloggers domain.

Kristina's photos are simply beautiful, and the combination of her fantastic taste in clothes, her model looks (she's in the running for Miss Switzerland) and her super talented photographer boyfriend takes on their travels makes for a breathtaking and inspiring style blog!

5. Susie at Takeout In Couture

I love the colourful themed mood boards Susie posts, as well as her street style photos that always have a whimsical quality to them (though the above picture is one of mine, not Susie's!) It also does not hurt that she has a wonderful but simple style, and looks beautiful in almost every single photo ever taken of her.

Sarah's blog has recently been going from strength to strength. She's been taking more and more fantastic outfit photos, and all of her pictures are so bright and full of colour. Her Look Show entry makes for a fantastic showcase of just how talents she is. 
omg 7. Gala at Gala Darling

Gala's blog has always been one of my favourites, the first blog I ever read and the reason I started blogging in the first place. I love her bright and quirky outfit posts, her lovely tips to making your life much happier, and her wonderful takes of her New York adventures, as well as her sojourns with the one and only Betsy Johnson herself!
2 8. Jenny at Jenny From The Block

Jenny's outfit posts from sunny California make me wish I was back there again. She embodies that classic and laid back West Coast style, but brings her own individual edge, which along with her beautiful photographs make her blog a must read. (She also posts fun things like behind the scenes photos from photo shoots too!)
a466345a 9. Emma from Milkteef

I love Emma's cute outfit posts, as well as the many wonderful snapshots of her every day life and blogger events she attends. If you love having a snoop at other peoples wish lists and purchases, Emma's blog is for you!
8 10. Michelle from Daisybutter

Last but not least, I love Michelle's sweet layout and her wonderful snapshot posts, including her insightful week in photos and her wonderful how to wear info graphic posts that will solve all of your wardrobe dilemmas!
