A lot of blogs are very glitz and glamour – Pinterest worthy posed and propped photography in every post, days out to extravagant London restaurants every week etc etc. You know the type. Don’t get me wrong, many of these blogs make my reading list, but sometimes you want to read a blog that is more down-to-earth, more relatable…you know what I mean?
I’ve picked out five of my favourite blogs that fit this category, and explain why I think they’re so great!
I’ve been a big fan of Becky’s blog for a long time, as I love the variety of posts she creates. Becky’s blog is also one of the only blogs that posts OOTD‘s that I actually click through to look at because I love her style. I also love that a lot of her OOTD poses include her standing on her bed!
With Becky, there is absolutely no pretence, and even though we haven’t met I do get a good impression of how I imagine she is IRL, and I definitely think we’d be good friends!

Danielle is probably the nicest blogger I’ve come across. Both on her blog and on Twitter she comes across as such a sweetheart. Her love for her dog Baker is the cutest, and their relationship makes me really miss having a doggy!
She also blogs about a lot of topics, ones you can really tell she has a passion for (Disney, as an example!). She’s totally unique, in that she doesn’t just blog about the latest beauty product that’s been covered 100 times before – and her blog is also my go-to place for any Tag posts I fancy giving a go!
The lovely Amy is also a pen pal of mine, and it’s always a pleasure to hear from her! When either of us are too busy to pen a letter, I love to catch up with the goings-on in her life by reading her blog.
We’re quite local to each other, so it’s nice to read about her adventures in places that I recognise, and she also wrote this great post about it being OK to be disliked which I really loved!
Olivia is another lovely blogger who tends to avoid blogging about the typical subjects that fill my blogger feed – and that’s what keeps me going back!
In a recent post she travelled to Brighton and really captured the essence of the city as an ‘outsider’ which I thought was refreshing, given a lot of posts I’ve read about Brighton are from locals.
I’ve followed Emma’s blog for a while now, and we have so much in common! So much of the stuff she posts are items I would happily splurge my money on, and she’s also branched out into more lifestyle-y posts which are great too.
She’s a bit of a nerd like me, and so her geekery-themed posts are my favourite to catch up with!
