This year I have had the up-most pleasure in reading an array of fantastic blogs from some pretty inspiring women. From such a wide variety of content to read daily I have found that reading blogs has definitely become part of my daily life, along with watching the odd YouTube video here and there.
Suzie - Hello October - Suzie's blog and indeed YouTube channel is one of my favourites and has been for quite a long time now. She seems so incredibly genuine, upfront and honest which when I'm taking advice from her in regards to make up products to buy or not to buy as the case maybe makes this honesty even more important. She also has the cutest puppy ever, period.
Claudia - Beauty and the Chic - Claudia's blog is the one to go to if you're a huge LUSH fan, trust me! Of course she features plenty of other products along with some really pretty outfit posts too and like I've already mentioned in one of the comments on her blog, she picks the most gorgeous nail polish shades I have ever seen.
Sophie - The Private Life of a Girl - If there has been one blog that I have visited every single day without fail this year then it will be The Private Life of a Girl. Sophie's no nonsense approach is SO incredibly refreshing and her advice posts and beauty interests are on point. I always leave Sophie's blog feeling inspired, like I can go out there and get what I want if I work hard enough for it. She's incredibly inspiring and produces the most unique blog I have ever read. If there is one blog you should take a peek at for 2015 then let it be this one.
LaaLaa - Dolce Vanity - LaaLaa's blog is once again a personal favourite of mine and is one that deserves so many more readers as she is again a blogger that I trust. Her make up knowledge is clear to see from reading her blog posts, whereby the tips she has often left me in comments on my own blog have always been welcomed. Dolce Vanity isn't however completely focused on beauty; there is a variety of content over there ranging from food and style too!
Kim - Love Cloth - If there's one fashion blogger who just looks so incredibly happy to be doing what she's doing it is Kim. I absolutely adore her fashion sense and the fun atmosphere that is so evident in so many of her pictures. Unlike so many fashion blogs I find Kim's style to be true and real to everyday life, I could envision myself wearing what she's wearing instead of thinking 'yeah that's nice but I'd never wear that out in public'. Love Cloth is most certainly a fashion blog to keep bookmarked.
Chaitra - Pink Pot - Towards the end of the year I had the pleasure of having Chaitra guest post for me whilst I was settling back down into university life. She's such a pleasure to talk to and has an equally beautiful blog to match her personality. I love the large crisp images she produces and the helpful advice she provides on her photography tip posts.
Latasha - Today I Adore - Latasha has a make up collection that I could only ever dream of, it's safe to say I have being eyeing up the NARS Kabuki Brush set ever since she featured it at the beginning of the month. She's an utter beauty and is once again a blogger that is so friendly and approachable. I adore the style of her blog and the images that she produces, they're clean cut and elegant to boot.
Victoria - In The Frow - I've followed In the Frow for a good while now and it is truly incredible to see how well Victoria has done in such a short period of time. Whilst her blog, style and hair are impeccable what inspires me most about Victoria is her dedication to her studies, she's clearly worked very hard for a very long time and deserves all the success that comes her way.
Caroline - Burkatron - It's safe to say that without a shadow of a doubt Caroline's blog has been my favourite blog of all time. I still remember discovering her blog roughly around the time when I started my own, that'll be three years in March so it just goes to show how long I have being reading Burkatron. In that time her blog has grown from strength to strength whereby her home decor posts and nail tutorials along with her awesome style posts always have me coming back for more.
Jenny - Jennypurr - Starting off as a beauty blog Jennypurr has changed over the year into a creative outlet full of advice, motivation and inspiration for bloggers and creatives alike. Jennypurr was my go to beauty blog but even now her site keeps me coming back for more in order to learn new things and to see how she's getting on, plus she does add in a sneaky beauty post here and there. She's such a lovely person and one that I truly wish all the success for in 2015.
A special mention goes out to Miss Makeup Magpie, Thumbelina Lillie, Superlatively Rude, Rinica Writes.
