30. Reading // My Favourite Blogs

Afternoon lovelies, I've decided to write about a few of my current favourite blogs today! As I'm quite new to blogging, I've spent the last couple of months discovering a huge variety of blogs, ranging from fashion and beauty to mental health to lifestyle, cooking and travel

In this post I'm going to write about my seven current favourites which include lifestyle, beauty and fashion and I really hope that you enjoy reading about them and, hopefully, have a cheeky look for yourself!

Elizabeth's lovely blog has been a recent discovery of mine! I actually stumbled across her site when I first heard of the Blog Everyday in May challenge (which she organised) and has a browse through her posts. Elizabeth covers a huge range of topics from travel, cooking, fashion and thrifting. She's also a big fan of car-boot sales, much like myself, and a bit of a bargain hunter which is always good. I love Elizabeth's blog as it's full of quirky ideas and beautiful photos, definitely worth a look.

As the name suggests, this blog really is beautiful. Run by two sisters, it covers such a wide variety of topics from interior decor, craft ideas, recipes and even some fashion & beauty thrown into the mix too. My boyfriend and I are hoping to move into our own place either this year or next and therefore I love looking for cute and quirky decor ideas and A Beautiful Mess is the ideal place for this! I've yet to try any of them for myself yet but I definitely will be and, as for the recipe ideas, even just the photographs are enough to get your mouth watering!

I absolutely love Dannie's blog! For me, it's mainly the way that she writes that draws me in. I find Dannie's product reviews to be very funny and, although she includes a lot of information (especially regarding whether the products she tries out are cruelty free), I never find it a bore to read through. There's a lot of humour in her posts and I think she's very honest about the products she tries. Also, there's so many high-street brands mentioned on her blog that I don't feel ridiculously envious (as I do with many other beauty bloggers who seem to be able to spend a small fortune on products!) and know that, if something on Dannie's blog takes my fancy, I can go out and get it too!

A fellow Northerner, Kayleigh's blog is amazing. I am pretty much in awe of Kayleigh's entire wardrobe and contents of her dressing table! Much like Dannie, Kayleigh uses a lot of high-street brands too so it's not out of reach for the everyday girl who loves make-up! Kayleigh's photographs are beautiful and she often features OOTD/OOTN posts which are fun to read and pick up outfit ideas from. I also love how she includes little snippets of her daily life into the mix too so, as you read through her product reviews, you feel like you're getting to know Kayleigh herself as well.

I've only recently discovered plus size blogs and George's is by far my absolute favourite. Not only is she gorrrrgeous (seriously!) but she writes about a lot of topics which I can relate to. I always have issues shopping for bras and for dresses as I'm 'big on top,' and always felt really self-conscious of being a little larger than everyone else; not only in terms of bra-size, but all over, but thanks to George (and many others) blogs I don't feel like that anymore. George proves that you can find clothes to flatter a larger, bustier, hour-glass figure without having to rob a bank and that you can look gorgeous nonetheless. I really urge you to take a look at George's blog!

Laura's lovely blog incorporates little snippets of everything that I love; recipes, fashion, book reviews, lifestyle posts, beauty and lists (oh my God, I love lists) and her blog is such good fun to read through. Laura updates regularly which I also love and there always seems to be something interesting going on in her life. Just like with Dannie, I find Laura's blog to be very honest and down-to-earth which is brilliant as there's nothing worse than reading a blog and thinking 'nobody lives like that?!' and being completely unable to relate. Seriously, check out Laura's blog - you won't regret it!

Callie is another plus size blogger whose blog I really enjoy flicking through! However, Callie also includes a lot of lifestyle posts and even some recipes in her blog, which are great fun to have a nosey through. I think the main thing I love about Callie's blog is that her personality shines through; she seems to be so full of life and fun! I love reading about the events she's attended and even what she's got upto in her spare time as she includes some lovely photographs and you just wish you were there. And again, Callie shows that you don't have to be stick-thin to be sexy and that beauty really does come in all shapes and sizes. Overall, a really lovely blog about fashion, body acceptance and life.

Lots of Love,
Becci xox
