I always love discovering new blogs and reading old favourites. Sadly, I don’t read blogs as much as I’d like too now. Through changing situations and sorta distancing myself from blogging in the past month (trying to get back to how I was a few months ago FYI). However, I do always make time for my favourites. The last favourite bloggers post that I did, seemed to go down pretty well and like I said in that post, I want to make this a regular thing – sharing the love. Cos y’know there are some bloody talented, amazing people in this community and they need to be celebrated! Hopefully you’ll find some new reads!
Nikki from Love Laughs Lipstick
If you don’t know Nikki or if you haven’t heard of Nikki, then you need to take a long, hard look in the mirror. She is, without a doubt – one of the FUNNIEST people I have ever known. Every single day she has me crying. Many months I drooled over her blog and photos. Hoping one day, we’d be mates… Well it happened (unless Nikki actually hates me then this shit is gonna get awkward real fast…) We were added into a group chat and well the rest is history.
Nikki’s posts are literally how Nikki is. I’m so glad she puts her personality into her blog because I think that definitely sells her blog too. I LOVE a good personality and let’s be real, who actually likes the blogs that are basically copying a press release or dissertation style writing? Her photos are to. die. for. Despite going through a real, tough time recently, she’s managed to somehow stay positive in all of it. I still get daily voice notes of Nikki laughing, doing impressions of something or inside jokes… *ahem* Cove Slippy. If you love brutally honest posts, dreamy photos and a sassy since the age of 4 personality, then check Nikki out!
Shona from ShonaLouise
Shona, Shona, Shona, Shona. Where do I start with Shona? How many times am I going to say Shona’s name? Probably a lot more. I loveee this lass. Like I actually love her. Her blog offers a wonderful blend of beauty, disability and lifestyle. She’s even throwing some fashion posts in there at the moment – woohoo! (my favourite outfit ever on Shona is dungarees FYI). I love that Shona talks about issues, she talks about disabilities and she often tweets about issues too – which incase you can’t tell, I love that about her. Thanks to Shona, I’ve been made aware of Marfan Syndrome, something I didn’t really know much of until I stumbled across her blog. She also now lives across the water from me *waves* so I think a meet up is definitely in order at some point (now I just have to hope that Shona doesn’t reject me…)
Shona is also raising money for a new powerchair at the moment because her current one is now unsuitable for her – please, please, please check out her go fund me page and it would mean the world if you could donate because this will seriously be life changing for Shona.
Leanne from LPageBeauty
A Queen. Leanne is a frickin’ Queen. Simple as that. Leanne has a gorgeous Instagram theme, I love her photos so much. The monochrome with a splash of colour – it works so well. I wish I could pull off monochrome photos like she can. Her collection of makeup is to die for and her blog is simply wonderful. Another person I used to read for hours on end and fell fortunate enough to be in a group chat with her. She blogs so frequently so there’s always something to read on her blog. I’m forever playing catch up. I honestly don’t know how she finds the time!
Her blog also has a perfect blend of beauty, lifestyle, tips and tricks. I love reading her skincare posts especially. Also – just a pre-warning here… If you are new to Leanne’s Instagram or blog, you might want to kiss your bank balance goodbye. Every time I see that Leanne has a new post or has posted a photo, my bank balance cries and my wish list gets that little bit longer!
Ellie from Ellie’s Bits of Beauty
So it wasn’t until Ellie won a competition that me and a few other blogging gals did that she actually lives in the same town as me… Small world huh? Anyway, I love her blog and to say that it’s only just over a year old (according to her archives) I think her blog is bloody fantastic!! She’s already come on in leaps and bounds IMO.
Whilst Ellie may be primarily a beauty blog – you’ll be stuck for choice on what to read first! Also, thanks to her Instagram – she’s got me drooling over HUDA beauty minis, the new Spectrum Collection Mean Girls set and so much more… She’s a bad influence too! Hopefully we can meet up at some point since we probably live 20 minutes apart and we went to the same college haha!
Hayley from Teapartybeauty
Hauled, how I love thee. (personal joke involving shitty iPhone autocorrect) Despite Hayley saying her soul is black and her heart is made of ice, I know she definitely has a lil soft spot for Karen over here. I used to be terrified of Hayley before we started speaking and it wasn’t until she sold her camera to me and then added into a group chat together that we really hit it off. Since being in Whatsapp chats, I don’t think there’s actually been a day where we haven’t spoke (alongside the other babes who will be in later series of favourite bloggers – spoiler alert!)
I’ve always admired Hayley’s blog and photos before I even had the pleasure of knowing her. Her flatlays are my some of my favourites, just utter perfection. I still say that my photos are only half decent because she sold her camera to me! Hayley is very eloquent but still ‘on your level’ when she writes and I love that. Hayley is my go-to for recommendations as I trust her judgement, never had a product yet that I didn’t like from her recommendation! We’ve been to France together, we spooned one night (unintentionally but I’m taking that moment for all it’s worth) and she gave me a cheeky massage, of course she had to be in my favourite bloggers post!
So there we have it, five more bloggers that you all need to check out. I’m going to aim for atleast 10 – yes, 10 – bloggers in my next post! Make sure you check out these babes if you’re not familiar with them already, you won’t be disappointed.
