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, came across a sponsored post which sparked new ideas and inspiration for a brighter and bigger future within blogging and the next thing I new things were happening. 

After almost three years of blogging I'm still thoroughly enjoying what I do and I didn't see anything wrong with the content and photography I was putting out but something happened that made me realise I could be doing better. 

Instagram has been one of the major changes in recent weeks with a new theme taking place, discovering new bloggers to follow, gaining new inspiration and spending more time searching for new places to visit across South wales. 

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 discreetly take a photo, others who were catching up with friends over a cup of tea and then those just like me, camera out whilst re-arranging the table 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 has 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 it was difficult not to try some form of food they had to offer. 

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.

Wishing you all the best, until next time.

    1. I didn't really have any time away from blogging, I've started posting once a month instead of putting pressure on myself to do it weekly (:

    1. I think maybe I worded it wrong above, as I've not had a break from blogging, I just found the pressures of posting regularly too much and decided to only do it once a month (:

  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!

  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

    1. It's so great isn't it! I remember years ago it would be almost near impossible to find somewhere catering for vegetarians let alone vegans!

      Thank you, happy birthday to you as well!

    1. Thank you, I have a special love for this outfit!

      I'm not actually vegan either, but one of my friends is and it always makes me so more aware when I'm about and about now about making sure everyone is catered for!

  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.
