Blogger Love #1

For as long as I can remember (since the birth of the wonderful thing called the Internet anyway) I have always enjoyed reading blogs of some shape or form. I remember being in high school and spending an excessive amount of time that should have been spent on studying trolling through various Live Journal sites - I was really into personal blogs at that time. That soon moved on to Tumblr where I first started blogging myself, and it wasn't until I found Estee's blog that I was introduced to the wonderful world of beauty blogging - and I haven't looked back since.

Despite the copious and arguably ridiculous amounts of time that I spend online reading beauty and fashion blogs I have failed to share my love for my favourites and daily reads, shame on me. So when I was tagged recently by the lovely Tamira from The Guilty Girl, I decided it was finally time to share a little bit of lovin'. Instead of answering questions (because God knows how indecisive I can be) I've decided to just name a few of my faves for you guys to check out if you haven't already (but you probably have, because let's face it you probably spend as much time on here as me).

I'll start with the regular favourites, but these were the gals that really inspired me to start my own blog and share my love for all thangs beauty. As mentioned I love myself some Essiebutton, she is so down to earth and absolutely hilarious, I always seem to find myself cackling while watching her videos. Not to mention that girl could probably persuade to buy almost anything, and I mean anything, she also has some great lifestyle posts!

Another enabler would probably be the good old duo, Lily from Lily Pebbles and Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup. I just love their friendship and obviously their blogs. I seem to have a thing from bloggers from the UK, one of the first few blogs I started following was Alix's blog I COVET THEE and Kate from Gh0stparties. These girls are just gorgeous and seriously makes me envy those UK girls.

Of course I also need to mention my Aussie girls, Brodie from Brodie Jay, Sarah from More than Adored, Ash from Actually Ash, Laura from Breton & Blush, Tenneil from Like Neon Love and Nhi from Miss Blushaholic. Don't get me wrong, I love reading international blogs but sometimes it's hard reading about the products we can't or will never get, not to mention being in different seasons!! But that doesn't mean I don't love them so! A shout out to Celina from The Celution, Tamira from The Guilty Girl, Claire from Clairabelle0306, and Kirsty from Behind These Closed Eyes.

Lately I have really been inspired by and loving the posts by lipstick with somesunshine, From Roses, and Sleep and Water. Their posts are so great to read and their photography and blog layout is beyond amazing!  

There are SO MANY blogs that I want to mention and I'm sure I have missed out on so many blogs! These are just the ones that I can think of from the top of my head! I will hopefully do more editions of this post in the future because I am always finding great new blogs to follow pretty much everyday!

What are some of your favourite blogs?

  5. Thank you for mentioning me :) Some of my absolute favourites here, most of which I'm already following and loving. I agree with you living in Australia as well, the UK beauty girls are the cream of the crop in the beauty blogging world, but being able to read local blogs keeps it real and accessible :)

  10. I'm so honoured to have been mention alongside some of my favourite bloggers! I LOVE these kind of posts. It's reminded me I need to do some of them :)

    Oh and I know what you mean about reading international blogs - the different seasons can make some stuff irrelevant so I prefer reading local blogs as well!
