Yesterday I let some of my thoughts on recent political events tumble out my head and on to this blog. As always, it felt cathartic but also I felt as though I was merely skimming the surface of everything that doesn't quite sit right with me now the world has tilted a different way.
Over the last couple of days I've been so grateful to see other bloggers tackling the topic of Trump's impending presidency, and as always they've done so with grace and the kind of eloquence I can only admire.
I rounded a couple of my favourites up for Twitter earlier today, but Twitter moves so quickly and in my haste I also forgot to tag the writers involved. So to keep a record of their thoughts, and to share them with you, here are some of my most-admired reads of the last week.
1 - Lauren at Britton Loves - CHANGE
2 - Emma Gannon - MESSY THOUGHTS ABOUT A MESSY ELECTION
3 - Stephanie DJL - HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD
4 - Thoroughly Modern Millennial - WHAT COMES NEXT
5 - Rhyme & Ribbons - TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF THIS ELECTION
6 - Lumiere & Lens - AFTER THE ELECTION
7 - Fleur's Makeup Box - TODAY AND THE US ELECTIONS
8 - Tapeparade - PRESIDENT TRUMP, BREXIT & ISOLATION
If you've come across any must-reads, please share!

Jemma reminds us of a whopping 43 happy things, Rosie has written a beautiful and heartfelt post on motherhood, and Lima brings light to the world through the medium of highlighter.
Much love to you all,
