Favourite Blogs of 2014

December 22, 2014

With the year soon coming to close, I wanted to do another series of post where I share my favourite things from the past year, whilst also reflecting a little. This year i've seen a lot of love within the blogging community and I just love how we all support each other, it is a truly lovely community to be involved in, so I thought i'd spread a little more love and talk through my favourite reads of the year.
Being a blogger, I read so many blogs so narrowing down my favourites was quite difficult but I mainly went for the blogs that I have discovered this year and have continued to love since discovering them.

1 | Rebecca from From Roses, i've mentioned Rebecca's blog a couple times previously and I just love everything about her blog. If you're looking for a beauty/lifestyle blog that is just fresh in every way possible, content, writing etc.. then you'll love it just as much as me. I'm also pretty jealous of her photography, her images are just so clean and refreshing that I always think to myself 'why can't I make my images look like that?!'

2 | Lydia from Lydia Rose, is one of the loveliest bloggers that I ever spoken too and her blog is pretty awesome too! I've been following Lydia right from the get go, and it's amazing to have seen her blog grow into what it has and some of the experiences she has gained from it are truly admirable. If you are looking for a fashion/beauty blog with something a little different to the norm, then look no further.

3 | Claudia from Beauty and the Chic, is one of my favourite beauty blogs of the year and is one that I will always go back to. Her photography is something I admire most about her blog, along with her in depth reviews and swatches in pretty much every beauty post, she is one you can count on as she puts her heart and sole into her blog.

4 | Mollie from Molly Manning, is another one my favourite all rounder blogs. She covers a bit of everything from fashion, beauty and lifestyle, and her writing style is so relaxed and refreshing to read. Being a photography student, her photography is bloody amazing, simple yet amazing and i'm often envious whenever I scroll through her blog!

5 | Jen from Jenny Purr has been my go to blog when it comes to all things blogging advice over the past few months. She shares some amazing tips and topics i'd never even considered, and has really opened up my mind on how to improve my blog, how to handle my blog, the pressure that comes with blogging and just how to be a lot more organised in general. If you're struggling or just fancy some blogging advice, then take a little peak as you're bound to learn a trick or two.

6 | Charissa Rae from Charissa Rae has been a long term favourite of mine pretty much from the beginning, but there is something different about her style that separates her from 'other' fashion bloggers, and that something is what I enjoy so much about her blog. I find her style a lot more wearable and I take a lot of inspiration from her when styling my own daily looks. Charissa is also seriously pretty, I need to learn some makeup tips from that girl as she always looks flawless.

7 | Andrea from Rosy Chicc is another one of my favourite beauty blogs to read as she gives some amazing in depth reviews, and I will always look to her blog before purchasing a product. Her photography is like no other blogger that i've ever seen, her editing/photography skills are seriously breath taking as her images are so clear and high in quality, which just adds to her amazing reviews.

8 | Charlotte from Things I Do, Think and Buy has become a recent favourite of mine, but I find her style so cute and quirky and i'm sometimes so envious of her wardrobe. Even though Charlotte's style isn't all that similar to mine, there are certain aspects of her style that I take inspiration from and incorporate it into my own style, usually her accessories or shoes and I just love seeing how she styles different outfits. If you're a lover of girly, yet sophisticated style then take a look at Charlotte's blog.

9 | Helen from The Lovecats Inc is another firm favourite of mine, but more so recently I have not been able to stop reading her blog as she has really stepped up her game. The mixture of content from fashion, beauty, lifestyle, baking, advice etc.. is what always brings me back to Helen's blog and she is always so consistent and her writing style is so easy to read. I also love the cleanness of her blog, from the layout to the photography, it's really lovely to see such a breath taking blog.
