Blogger of the Month - Briar Rose Blog

I really hope you’re enjoying this series of posts and that perhaps you’ve discovered a new blog or two to follow. It’s so hard to just pick one blogger a month because there are so many great bloggers out there – I’ve got a list longer than my arm of candidates for my blogger of the month award! If you have a particular blogger you’ve been loving recently, I’d love to hear about them.

So, let me introduce you to my January Blogger of the Month; Megan over at Briar Rose Blog.

I discovered Megan’s blog a while ago and I don’t know why I haven’t made her my blogger of the month sooner, because hers is one of my favourite ever blogs to read! She also produces YouTube videos as well, so covers my interest from all angles!


Megan comes across as such a lovely person and is definitely someone I would love to be friends with! She’s 22, an aspiring YA novelist, occasional model (isn’t she gorgeous?!) and lives with her husband in their University town of Bath, with her parental home being in Cornwall.


I am absolutely in love with Megan’s style and sense of fashion. I get the impression my body shape is quite similar to hers, and I have got no end of inspiration from her fashion posts. I really struggle to dress for my body shape, but discovering Megan’s blog has opened my eyes into a whole new way of dressing. She chooses beautifully made fabrics and colours that you can’t help but be taken in by.

Cute accessories

Megan is definitely a girl after my own heart when it comes to accessories – the cuter and more individual the better! Over the last few months she has showcased everything from a Russian Doll bag to plenty of quirky and fun hair accessories from Crown andGlory.

Cute cat

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you will know by now that I’m a big cat lover, so seeing photos of Megan’s gorgeous kitty cat, who lives with her parents, never fails to make me smile!

Product reviews

I always enjoy reading reviews from bloggers – it’s the first place I go to for information and thoughts on pretty much anything! I really enjoy Megan’s reviews because she looks at such an eclectic mix of products and takes such beautiful photographs of them in the process.

Amazing red hair

You can’t read Megan’s blog, or watch her videos, without noticing her waves of beautiful red hair. As a fellow red-head, I am totally inspired by it and definitely dream of my hair being that long and lustrous one day!

Love of afternoon tea

I know I’ve found a person I will click with when I find out they love afternoon tea! Megan loves to share her fondness for cakes, tea and sandwiches with her beautiful photographs and lyrical words.


Before reading Megan’s blog, I had never really heard of Cosplay and now I’m wondering why I waited until now to know about it! The thought of being able to dress up as a Disney Princess fills me with absolute joy, and it’s something I would really like to look into doing at some point. Megan makes the most amazing costumes – look out in the future for her completely hand-made Elsa costume – it’s amazing!

Beautiful wedding photos

Just over a year ago, Megan married her sweetheart in what I can only describe as my perfect wedding ceremony. I was entranced by her beautiful photos, the outfits, decorations and just about everything else. Definitely going to be pinning some of those photos onto my Pinterest wedding board!


Like myself, Megan feels most at home baking in her gorgeous kitchen, and I love keeping up-to-date with her latest recipes for scrummy looking cakes and sweet treats.

Gorgeous round ups

I especially love it when Megan posts a round up of photos over on her blog – she takes the most beautiful and colourful photos, so having them all in one place is a real treat for the eyes!


I’m really getting into watching and using YouTube at the moment, so I’m extra happy that Megan makes videos as well. She took part in Vlogmas in December, which I might have let out a little squee about – a video every day! What more could you possibly want?!

So, that just about sums up my Blogger of the Month for January. If you’ve not checked out Briar Rose Blog before I really hope I’ve helped convince you to and that you’ve found a great new blogger to follow.

  2. Hey, I also love this blogger of the month post. Really interesting post! Thanks for sharing. I am an event planner and just finished an elegant bridal shower project. The party was hosted at party space rentals in Brooklyn. It was my first official visit to Brooklyn and I completely enjoyed working for this bridal shower!
