Rebecca is top of the chain for me with her content because I can honestly say I never skip reading a single post of hers. I never leave her site disappointed, rather, every time I step onto her page I leave renewed and excited because just reading one of her seriously wtf amazing posts sparks over a hundred ideas in my brain. And I frickin' love that. From Roses talks about everything, from the annoyance of hair removal to can't-live-without beauty products, she has got you covered. Her lifestyle posts are probably my favourite because she really encourages me to get my shit together just by being. That, my friend, is talent. I know you most likely all follow her already but I couldn't not mention the impact her site has on me, plus her tattoos are stunning (see photo below for proof).
Jasmine has one of the best beauty blogs out there, she does touch on other subjects and has incredible photography throughout her blog, but her beauty content has me enraptured. Her Edit style posts are some of my all time favourite online reads, in addition she has a beautiful way of translating the performance of a product into words. For a perfect example read this post on US Beauty Must Haves.
Leanne's blog is brilliant, if you've read any of her content you will know exactly what I mean. One of my favourite things about her unique platform is her straightforward and catchy headlines i.e. High End Discoveries and Makeup Lately, they don't try to hard and let you know exactly what you can expect from her post. I particularly love her The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Series where she goes into depth on one beauty product, such as highlighters, concealers or contour kits and let's you know what works, what doesn't work and what should never have been made in the first place. She has an uncanny ability to be unwaveringly polite and professional even when she doesn't like a product. That alone is a skill in itself, as no one is happy to drop the dollars on products worth shit.
Is there even a way to summarise what the Thirteen Thoughts brings to my life? I find her content to be food for thought to be honest. Everything I read, I absorb and want to utilise immediately. Her blog, to me, promotes positive change and self-awareness. She creates the kind of posts you want to read when you are having a God awful day or you are on your period or you've literally just been shit on by a bird or small child, case in point: 7 Ways to Reset When You Feel Stuck. It makes you feel better, stronger and recharged like I imagine coffee does for most people (FYI I hate coffee but I love this blog). Of course, as a beauty fanatic I appreciate the incredible beauty content too, she knows her shit and her flat lays are the stuff of dreams. If you want following her on Pinterest, I don't know what to say to you, she is the sole reason I have Pinterest.
Kelsey's blog, her photos (dreamy), her layout (perfect) and her writing, last but not least, slays my entire existence. I love the way she writes about beauty. I'm an avid reader so large chunks of text never bother me, but I always find myself carving time out specifically, from my day, so I can properly delve into her posts and soak up every word. I devour her posts because they are so well-written and thoughtful, they don't stray off topic (not that I would mind if they did) and her descriptions are perpetually spot-on. A little thing, that shouldn't matter but, she also seems really nice. For a prime demonstration of everything I just said please read this awesome post.
Wow, that was quite a gushy post, if this is the first post you have ever read of mine please know that I am not like this at all 98% of the time, but currently I am experiencing a very uncharacteristic outpouring of love for everyone in the world. Especially bloggers and anyone who reads the crap I write. I reached over 500 followers on Bloglovin' (hell yeah!) and my Instagram has gained more followers in the last few weeks than I ever would have dreamed. I'm so grateful to everyone for your support, I honestly don't know how to thank you, all of you. Just know that I try my hardest to create content worthy of being uploaded, I say no to sponsored offers all the time (not because I have a holier-than-thou complex) because it just isn't me and as a result wouldn't be worth reading.
I know it sounds like bullshit and you have probably heard it all before but I do work my ass off for each and every post you guys read. Not just writing and taking photos, but honestly promotion is the most exhausting and ickiest aspect of blogging, for me at least, It takes oodles of time and is so frustrating so if you do read my posts or follow me on any social media, don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin' as you help me out a lot by doing that. Every time I see I have a new follower I have a one minute dance party, it makes me so happy. So please follow if you wanna. Lots of love. Take care.
Who inspires you?
