Blanche Bakery

Welcome back all and my oh my has it been an exciting few weeks since my last post. I'm not even sure how it all began I just vaguely remember scrolling through Instagram one day, and a sponsored post sparked new ideas and inspiration for a brighter and bigger future within blogging. Now though, if you were to ask me what post began such a frenzy, I would honestly not be able to recall what it was and why it made such a huge impact on myself.

Now don't get me wrong, after almost three years of blogging I'm still thoroughly enjoying what I do and I felt like what I was doing was doing okay, even with the occasional ups and downs when it comes to inspiration which I'm sure we have all related to at some point or another. Something happened though and it made me opens my eyes to wear could be progressing too in the future. 

I'm sure many of you can agree blogging isn't always rainbows and daisy's, it's hard work and requires a lot of commitment to keep up with. Instagram though has been one of the major changes in recent weeks with a new theme taking place where I have been discovering new bloggers to follow, gaining new inspiration and spending more time searching for new places to visit across South Wales and over seas. In recent weeks trips have been booked to Barcelona, Amsterdam and London, not only for the purpose of blogging (although I would be lying if I didn't already have outfit photo in mind) but for the shear fact I want to start seeing more of the world. 

When I was younger I travelled all over the place to locations such as Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Austria, New York, Crete, Italy and so on but now I finally feel like I've got my travel bug back!

This also brings me onto the theme of today's post where I visited one of the many new locations I found in my local area

Blanche Bakery is Cardiff's very own 100% vegan cafe and is the epitome of a bloggers hangout location. It's cosy interior, friendly staff and delicious food made for a perfect brunch location. 

There were those who came in for a picture by the flower wall trying to discretely take a picture so no-one would notice, others who were catching up with friends over a cup of tea and then those just like me. Camera out, re-arranging the table for a photo and posing away by the Instagram-able flower wall. It didn't matter your reason for being in this delightful location, people smiled, people chatted away and most importantly there was no judgement. Blanche Bakery have clearly picked up on the bloggers trend and made something special to share with others and I'm so thankful to have this right on my doorstep.

With there own unique doughnuts and easy to choose from menu catering light options, it was difficult not to try some form of food they had to offer. So if you're ever in the area of Cardiff and are looking for a cosy place to go and relax, make sure you head over and experience it for yourself.

Before I round off today's post some of you may be wondering why I haven't mentioned the fact I am now 26, an that is indeed due to the fact I've changed my blogging routine As of August I'm going to be posting on the 1st and 16th of every month, mening next time you hear from me it will be on my birthday!

Wishing you all the best, until next time.

  4. What a cool looking bakery! I work at a bakery part time so I found this post really interesting to read! I have to admit though, the bakery I work at probably isn't as instagram worthy as this one! That green nature wall is so pretty!

  5. Ohhh I so wish I lived near that cafe! A 100% vegan cafe that has gorgeous looking doughnuts like that is a winner for me! I love that flower wall too!

  10. Great post, there's so many vegan places popping up now! I'm not even vegan but there's been times I've ordered a vegan option from a menu and it's been so nice. I think veganism can get an unfair rep sometimes. Photos are great and happy early birthday - I'm an August baby too! Xx

  11. Great post! Love the photos, this looks like a lovely place x

  12. That bakery looks so good that you've made me want to go to Cardiff just to visit. Happy birthday in advance and travelling is so amazing! All I have to do is look at a photo online and my travel bug kicks in massively x


  13. This bakery looks incredible! I love your outfit, it goes so well with the neon and leafy wall haha! And I'm not vegan but that donut, dammnnnn

  14. It's always okay to take a break from time to time. It's important to remember that social media/online doesn't cover the complete story. Glad you enjoyed your time out in Blanche Bakery! It's nice to hear that they're completely vegan.
