Oh You Lucky Bloggers June 50


As we approached the end of June it soon dawned on the lastminute.com blog team that it was time to compile our monthly round-up of the best blogs about good stuff. Now this is something that should carry a health warning, primarily to help prevent the eye strain involved in reading so many really great blogs. This time around was certainly no exception, particularly as there are a host of brand new blogs in the chart too.

Thanks to everyone who made a suggestion for new blogs to consider, there really are some fantastic additions to the chart this month, with Cult Beauty and The Road Forks just two that are well worth reading.

As per usual, if you’ve made it onto the chart and would like to join our private social network just drop us a line on twitter (@lastminute_com) and we’ll send you an invite. This will allow you the opportunity to receive products for review, to hear the latest company news, affiliate deals and more.

If you are not on the list and would like your blog to be considered for our next update, simply add a note in the comments and we’ll be sure you give your blog a read. Do also let us know if you agree with any of our choices for this months updated oh you lucky bloggers chart.

Without further ado, please join me in wishing each and every blogger who has made it onto our top 50 a big congratulations. Keep up the fantastic work.

About Author


  1. Thanks for sharing these! It’s great to discover new blogs.

    My blog is not necessarily focused on one thing, but I do a Travel Thursday series, currently documenting the time I spent in Kenya. Please take a looksie :.)

  2. Great to see The Other Side in there. I’ve been getting their mag for years now on the Northern Line – really love what those guys are doing!

  3. I randomly came across your list whilst looking for something else, but it’s a nice discovery and I’ll certainly be having a look at these blogs.

    Is there any particular criteria for being listed? Some of my favourite travel and lifestyle blogs are:


  4. Hello

    Thank you for including my mag Catch a Vibe(#48). Just one thing: we cover Lodnon and not Birmingham ;-)

    And we’ve just been awarded the Best International Blog Award at the Black Weblog Awards 2010! Yay!

  5. Hi,
    I have been checking out some of the blogs and I have to say your editorial criteria seem impeccable.

    I would be thrilled if we would check out my crazy blog.
    It includes a guide for cruisers, concert reviews, travel poetry and some of my filmmaking and festival adventures.


  6. Hey there
    Awesome list of blogs here. We’re currently over landing from Cape Town to Cape Horn- we’ve created a photo blog of the adventure here http://www.southnorthsouth.com (it’s a pretty simple premise- one photo for each day that best sums up what we saw or did)


  7. Oh my goodness! I love them all! The phootgraph showing her beautiful eyes is so pretty and I just love the one with her little fingers holding Brad’s fingers. Then, I love the one with Amy on the bed with Claire, too! I guess I just love looking at pictures of this precious child.Pure innocence and beauty! Great job, Aharon!
