Top 6 Army Wife Blogs That You Must Read This Year

Hello hello!!

Army Wife Tribe. What would we do without it! When you marry an Officer, you just don't marry the man, you marry the whole fauj and it is so true! And given the really unique experiences that are in store for us, a little help, advise and wisdom from experienced souls go a long long way.

So I have compiled a list of the amazing Army Wife blogs that I have been reading and you must read too if you need some insider's perspective of this beautiful, crazy, amazing life; also, to maintain your sanity, knowing you are not alone in this journey ;)

A Curious Army Wife
by Anamika Nandedkar

My first, My favourite! When I said 'yes' to the Soldier, Anamika's blog was the first one that cropped up when I searched 'Indian Army Wife Life' on Google and I have been hooked ever since. She provides an honest and hilarious take on life in the Army and if you are an alien, outsider, independent tomboyish girl who is looking to enter this weird, elegant, fun world, then you should bookmark her blog RIGHT NOW!

Aditi's Monologue by Aditi Mathur Kumar


If you finally do decide to marry your man in uniform, Aditi's book 'Soldier & Spice' should be your bible! Though it is a fictionalized account based on individual experiences, be sure that you are going to come across one or more of those funny/sour/bitter-sweet instances in your real life. A famous author and a travel writer, her blog continue to serve the delicious appetizers on the insides of the Army Life while she hops from one remarkable book to another.

Girl and World by Swapnil Pandey


Swapnil is the rising star of the blogging world, given that her magnificent blog that covers everything from positive living, travel, fashion and food to of course, the nitty gritty of Army Life. If you could read just one article in your life about being a military spouse, I would recommend her beautiful article on 'Army life pressures and how to deal with it'. She is on her way to becoming a published author (yay!) but it is her blog that is a must-read if you want to keep up to date with everything interesting that's happening around us.

by Maryam Hasan Ahmad


Maryam is an extremely talented illustrator, artist, mother of two boys and a true-blue Army Wife. Her blog is a melting pot of her artistic creations, yummy recipes, home decor inspirations, party ideas and Olive adventures. For those of you who wonder about the virtues of an Army wife,  Maryam delivers the message simply and strongly in this post
. Follow her adventures on the blog regularly and you will never leave disappointed.

Kohl Eyed Me by Shalini Nair

I have come across Shalini's blog just recently and I am amazed by her wonderful blog. Shalini authors not just one but TWO blogs, the other being 'Something's Cooking'. If you want some new fun recipes, latest product reviews or go on travel adventures, Shalini's the lady for you! Do not miss her post on the X-factor of Army wives :)

Half A Cup of Happyness by Sonia Kundra Singh

You probably know Sonia as the writer of four beautiful romance novels; what many of you may not have come across is her very resourceful blog which unfortunately, she has stopped updating a while ago. From decorating a fauji house to this comprehensive guide on packing, her posts are cited in many Army-related Facebook pages and was one of my first guides on learning about this life. And Sonia if you're reading this, PLEASE start blogging again! We need more of your insight and wisdom in our lives.

So here was my list of amazing blogs by amazing women that I know of. Of course, there are more blogs out there but either they have just one or two (though very useful) posts or have not been updated since many years.

Do you know of any more Army wife blogs? Do let me know so that I can update the list here.

Also, if you have some spare time, you can go through the Army Life section on my blog :D Shameless self-promotion
