My Favourite Blogs - December 2014.

This year instead of doing a Christmas giveaway, I thought I'd do something a little different. I haven't done a giveaway for a while, mainly because I don't like that it's often people who aren't loyal blog readers who win it. It's hard because you want it to be fair and 'random', but this often results in non-readers or new readers winning it instead of those you're trying to give back to to say thank you.

So I thought I'd say thank you in a different way, and cover off new and old blog-readers of Lux Life. So this Christmas I'm doing a post dedicated solely to my favourite blogs and bloggers, some of whom are long-time readers, and some of whom may never have read my wee blog before. Also to make it fair, none of them are in my current blogroll. So, without further ado, and in no particular order, I give you, some awesome new blogs to read....

Beyond Bklyn

I'm so completely in love with Beyond Bklyn, and every single post makes me want to visit NYC so badly! Stephanie moved to NYC from the North-East of England back in Summer 2014 (I met her literally days before she moved!), and she documents her new life in the Big Apple. Her photographs are stunning, and her blog layout is just so pretty and perfect.

Poppy Loves

I had the pleasure of meeting Poppy back in October at the Children in Need gala dinner. I've been a reader of her blog for a while, as she's one of my favourite London bloggers, so it was so lovely to finally meet her! I love her posts, every single post on Poppy Loves makes me laugh - her personality really shines through which I adore. Plus she always does the coolest things.

A Little Lusciousness

Rosie from A Little Lusciousness is an absolute foodie and she posts so many yummy recipes! It's funny how amazing social media and blogging is, and Rosie is honestly one of the reasons I'm so happy I got into blogging. Not so long ago we both realized that our great-great grandfather's knew each other. Mine worked for hers, and hers took mine over to the Isles of Scilly with him to work in the Tresco Abbey Gardens. If it weren't for her great-great grandfather, mine would never have met my great great grandmother...and I wouldn't be here today! How crazy is that?!

Fresh and Fearless

Aftab is freaking hilarious, and he's almost *almost* as good as me at pulling silly faces/poses in front of the camera. Fresh and Fearless documents everything from London life, to country life, to fashion, food, and events. It's also nice to see a guy's perspective on things for once, the blogging world is so saturated with women, it really is a refreshing change to see a man really get involved in the blogging community.

Got Meghan

Meghan astounds me. She is such an inspiration, and every time she tweets or blogs about her disability, Arthrogryposis, I just wanna high five her and tell her how amazing she is. Read her blog, Got Meghan, and you won't regret it. She types with her toes people, her toes. That girl blows my mind, and she always has such a positive outlook on everything.

Half Baked Harvest

So. Much. Food. Porn. Every photograph on Half Baked Harvest makes me drool, and I always send them to my foodie colleagues and we always vow to make them, but then chicken out. I just know my attempts won't look anywhere near as pretty as Tieghan's.

Intrepid Student

If you've never thought of visiting Estonia before, Aussie guy Bennett Pascoe (coolest name ever?) of Intrepid Student will make you long for the Baltics. Have a read through his Estonia posts ASAP, because he's just moved on and arrived in Vietnam. I'm very much looking forward to seeing his South-East Asia adventures though!

Follow Bennett on Twitter and Instagram.
