I have been reading City Girl Gone Coastal for literally years. Amanda was one of the first people I remember chatting to on Twitter and I remember reading her blog back when her boys were small – they are fully fledged school boys now.
What do I love about this blog?
I first loved City Girl Gone Coastal because of the beautiful seaside photos of sunrise, sunset and the pier. You really cannot beat beachy photos when you live so far from the sea. But now, from reading for years, I have come to love Amanda’s honesty, her openness about her struggles with depression and how she writes with her heart on her sleeve.
I love reading about her twins and seeing photos of them getting up to all sorts on the seafront. But, I also love Amanda’s creativity. I think that she can turn nothing into something and is definitely one of the most creative people I am lucky enough to know in this world of blogging.
What are my favourite posts?
If they don’t already, why should people read this blog?
Amanda has twins – so a great new reader for any other twin parent. But, it’s also a great read for anyone with a creative streak – making things out of driftwood, pebbles or anything else washed up on the beach. There are also beautiful photos and posts that really draw you in. A deeper blog than many I read but so worth taking the time to enjoy.
Where can they find the blog?
