Top 10: Beautiful Blogs


 Jessica Celebre is such an exquisite beauty! I have a crush on her and on her blog, seriously. The mermaid hair, the beautiful figure... not to mention her talent. Her ethereal, slightly grainy photography is really unique - it's like the dark side of David Hamilton but shot by a lovely, flawlessly whimsical girl. If you like simple unpretensious blogging with film photography and adorable outfits, follow her ASAP.

This blog was love at first click. Katie-Louise Ford is the lady with the perfect bobbed hair. I mean it. What you can expect from this blog: visually rich photographs, wanderlust wonders and vintage frocks to die for! I simultaneously envy and admire her - her beauty and travelling in equal measure. I also love the way she describes everything, and the fact that she is a very gifted seamstress... You should definitely visit her blog!


Extremely retro-stylish brunette Aimee and blonde Harriett have always been an inspiration for me. These two young ladies live in East London and share a passion for antique clothing. The two friends collect clothes from the Victorian period to the 70's and whenever I want to dress like a 30's bohemian showgirl or an Edwardian aristocratic bride, I look up to these beauties. I love them both! I find Aimee so sultry and charming, and Harriett has the perfect platinum blonde hair I've ever spotted on a blogger!



A pastels OD, eye-candy recipes, DIY galore and a rather kawaii blog design are only a few things to mention. This entire project is Wonderland!
Her name is Kate Gabrielle, she's from New Jersey and she's also a full time illustrator! She's the girl behind Flapper Doodle, creating illustrations of 1920's flappers - as the one in my blog header - and other adorable stuff with her art printed on it. She's one of a kind, a precious Etsy phenomena! I'm in love with her concept of personal style, I would describe it as Vintage Lolita meets Tavi Gevinson on Sugar High. Daisy fresh mint, saccharine-fueled lace, sweet shades of blue, romantic juvenile hues of ultra-cute whimsy... She's so pretty!



5. Lost in the Haze
I introduce you to Jo, a porcelain-skinned blondie from New Zealand. This is a fashion blog with beautiful photographs and everything related to beauty, lifestyle, travel, some 60's inspired style and fashion, pretty collars and hemlines, nature, florals and everything else you might consider dreamy or appealing. Just follow her, you won't regret it, trust me! And you will finally understand my fascination.

6. Pandora
From Paris with love and an obsession for fin de siècle showgirls, Belle Époque and the glam 70's, here is beautiful ginger-haired Louise Ebel, straight from a style that mixes The Ziegfeld Follies flapperhood with discosound diva mystique. Miss Pandora is indeed very artsy, bohemian and charming, combining the essence of the bygone eras with avantgarde trends, glamourously inspiring and romantic.

7. Wayward Daughter
This is a Scottish lass living in Edinburgh and perpetually in love with Peter Pan collars, baking, wee lace dresses and books. Apparently, her boyfriend takes most of the photographs and both of them do a great job together, building such a lovely blog like this! This pretty dark-haired girl also runs a label of clothing, which makes her and her blog even more adorable. It's also a great lifestyle journal, with nice spots and places to go and visit.


8. Hannah and Landon
For all of those who still don't know of Hannah, her and husband, Landon Metz, have a beautiful blog, apparently so. Their blog is full of pictures, lace, vintage stuff, and small glimpses into the Metz's daily lifestyle. Now Hannah Metz and her friend Elvia want to start their own lingerie line, aiming for a bigger step. This next level is totally understandable, since Hannah's got an exquisite taste. Please take a look around her blog - if it's not your cup of tea, at least you can delight yourself with her roaring hair.

9. Nora Alexa
Nora is a young lady who loves the 60's and 70's, interiors, cats, dresses, photography and rounded sunglasses. She's more sophisticated than the average Woodstock '69 bombshell though. This Northern European blonde beauty is striking when it comes to style. She's the nordic version of a more misterious Brigitte Bardot, oozes class and refined taste. She doesn't talk that much about her bipolar disorder but doesn't make a secret of it either. This blog is a must-click for any late 60's lover or fashion enthusiast.


Last but not least, I had to mention this famous blog. I follow Alix for a long, long time and to be honest, I miss her old days, when she wasn't so mainstream but she is still beautiful, classy and of course, admirably chic. I believe she has always been an influence, an inspiration, to many girls around the world. It's interesting to watch her gradual style evolution. And there are so many wonderfully pretty snapshots of her lovely travelling and of her adorable sense of style... I guess I'm one of her "forever followers" then.


It was very hard for me to pick 10 favourite blogs, when I actually follow nearly 300 - and I love all of them! However, you can have an idea of what sort of blogs and bloggers I'm fond of, and what do I tend to follow.

  2. Nice picks, I used to read The Cherry Blossom Girl quite a lot, and though her photos are always gorgeous I find her too unattainable now, and maybe a bit cliched.. x

    1. I have to agree with you on The Cherry Blossom Girl opinion. You are right, her blog is a classic but the hype is dated and she gets a bit boring and "too perfect" sometimes, if you know what I mean. I miss her old days, when she dressed like Wednesday Addams and wasn't so popular :) xx

    1. :) It was, however, it was so hard to pick those 10 blogs... I know there are blogs out there that I like as much as these and it might sound unfair or that I'm underrating them... But I love them all!

  10. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she maintains the
    image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    So that's why this piece of writing is outstdanding. Thanks!

  13. Many of these blogs are my favourites too, particularly bright young twins, katie louise ford and hannah and landon. I'm rather devastated that Jessica Celebre has privatised her marvelous dreamy blog-it's so sad when adored bloggers cease blogging.
