Illustrated Blogger #2: French for Cupcake

Here's the next installment in my newest feature - Illustrated Bloggers. Each month I introduce you to one of my favourite bloggers & tell you why they are brilliant. I love them so hopefully you will too!
Who is she? Claire from French for Cupcake

What's her site about? A fashion & baking blog. She also runs an amazing cupcake company, called the Lily Pink Bakery.

Why is she brilliant?
  • French for Cupcake was one of the first blogs I started reading. Before discovering the huge world of lifestyle bloggers, I used to think most bloggers were just super posey fashion models in daft clothes! It was really refreshing and encouraging to find a nice, normal blogger with the motto "Eat cake, wear nice things and be comfortable in your own skin!". 
  • Claire's a HUGE Game of Thrones fan girl, and I am very jealous that she's been on set, & met the cast members
  • Her cakes look amazing, and it's been really inspiring seeing her business take off & become so successful! She sells cakes at a market every week in Belfast - Craig & I have been chatting about a trip to Ireland for ages (I've never been!), and I'm seriously tempted to plan the holiday around a visit to her stall! 
  • She owns the most adorable sausage dog puppy called Lola. ADORABLE. 
  • We have a really similar sense of style & whenever she posts about a dress or shoes (especially glittery shoes!) I have to hide my debit card to try and resist spending!

  8. This is such a lovely way to introducing everyone to new bloggers, I love it when a blogger shares a bit of the old "blogging love" however you're defiantly one of my favorite bloggers (made it all the way to my bloglovin).
    Amazing painting as well.

  9. I love Claire & her blog. It's one of the first ones I read and she's my inspiration for blogging. She's just so lovely as well (on all the other platforms I follow her on) I'm hoping to get a sneaky visit in over the summer and get to meet her & Lola!
