Best Fashion and Lifestyle Blogs

The GWG rounds up another host of beautiful, fascinating and above all trend setting fashion and lifestyle blogs for your delectation...

Because of the endlessly regenerative nature of the Internet, because there's no end of fine blogging talent out there, because it’s summer, because the Jubilee is over (weep), because we just needed something to cheer us up after the miserable weather and last but not least just because we can (!), we’ve decided to do another whip round of our favourite fashion and lifestyle blogs. You may have caught our first instalment (you may not, in which case click here) whatever the situation, you'll be hard pushed not to find something to tickle your fancy; whether it’s street style, vintage or home you’re after, just try not to get hooked with this compendium of online treasures. Your lunch break will never be the same again...

Liberty London Girl

Oh how we worship at the altar of Liberty London Girl - this is a power blogger if ever there was one. Her insightful on trend posts are just what we like to read when it's fashion week and well all through the year to be honest. This is one domain that has all the fashion angles covered - and then some.

Cashmere and cupcakes
www.cupcakesandcashmere.com

How many an hour have we spent browsing the delectable selection of recipes, interior advice and fashion know how from wonderful wife, blogger and all round wonder woman Emily Schuman? Started in 2008 the blog has a serious following and well over 65,000 Twitter Followers – for good reason. Emily’s handy tips and sharp cutting edge imagery are the perfect aesthetic accompaniment to your Rosta of weekly magazines.


A fan of London’s eclectic street style? Always find yourself people watching? Well then The Style Scout is the site for you. The capital’s longest running street style blog and for good reason, the clever folk down at SS have scoured the streets so you don’t have to. Don’t leave the house in anything you wouldn’t want to be photographed in because the SS teams are out and about scouting from Broadway to Portobello, from Brick Lane to Notting Hill – yes if you want to make it onto the pages of this ultra chic fashion bible then put some thought into your outfit!


Another chic little corner of the Internet we're simply hooked on is Bleubird Vintage, the brainchild of self proclaimed ‘seventies child’ James Kickinski McCoy. Her beautifully laid out blog is full of sparkling family orientated images of James and her uber hip offspring - seriously aspirational to say the least. This is life as we would love to live it – dive right peeps and fall through the looking glass. Just be careful because you might not want to come back anytime soon.

A Cup of Jo

Joanna Goddard, ex Glamour Magazine blogger and current blogger for Conde Nast Traveler, has her own personal blog in which fashion and beauty play a pretty significant role. The journalist only features products she uses and can vouch for, ensuring full credibility. Motherhood Mondays brings to the forefront delightful tid-bits tailored for parents from cool kids-wear to hilarious photos and newly released goodies. There are also frequent give-aways, interesting art posts and travel tips for families.

Diary of a Vintage Girl

Fleur de Guerre is a modern girl cum 1940’s fashionista. This vintage loving writer, model, events host and actress has turned her multi-talented hand to blogging and boy are we are loving her regular updates focused on the wonders of her wardrobe and the many outings that she takes them on. Each post is a little peek into what making a living out of being obsessed with vintage translates as. To put it bluntly, we admire her passion, her style, her hair, her... Well you name it.

Yummy Mummy

Holly, a 25 year old self proclaimed ‘yummy mummy’ set up the blog to talk about her self proclaimed obsession with all thing beauty. We love her detailed reviews of make-up and nail care products (with an emphasis on nude palettes). Holly says herself that she is not a make-up artist but when someone is this dedicated to beauty, trust us, we'll more than vouch for their opinion.

Street Peeper

This humble site has made Phil, the owner, the up and coming King of street fashion (and some serious competition to The Style Scout - watch out guys!) Images from cities all around the world flood the site with inspirational outfits on everyday people. With a nonchalant, laid back feel the domain is non-threatening enough to those of us slightly removed from our inner fashionista, whilst comments boxes under each image provide space for dynamic discussions on what is hot and what is decidedly not.

Fashion Toast


And last but certainly not least we just had to pay homage to fashion blogger Rumi Lenora. Her site Fashiontoast explores her life as a model and photographer and comes complete with effortless visuals set against buzzing cityscapes which only enhances her striking street style.
