The 2012 Favourites: Bloggers, Vloggers, and Generally Awesome People

Props to me for coming up with the longest name ever for this post, but it felt right. This blog would not be as fun to write if it was the only blog out there, or without you. I’m not going to get all mushy on ya (not too much anyway) but I really do mean it. Hello October would not be the same without your support, comments and tweets, without the support of the other amazing people I’ve met through it, or without the support from old friends who have been with me pre-Hello October. In short, you’re all wonderful and thank you for an amazing year.

I’ve split my favourites into four catagories this year, the usual suspects being Bloggers and Vloggers (some do double up) with my favourite Beauty Reads and Tumblrs thrown in. A special shout out to a few of the girls from the Tumblr list needs to be done as well, in return for their support, friendship, inspiration, or just general lovelyness – they are marked with an *. Soppy outburst is now OVER. Let’s get on with this…

A Beautiful Mess | Buy Now, Blog Later | A Little Beauty Spot | Dizzy Brunette | Essiebutton
Five One Couture | Ghostparties | Grace & Braver | I Covet Thee | Le Happy | Lip so Facto | Love Cloth | Milk Bubble Tea | Milkteef | Sincerely, Jules | Style Confessional | The Londoner | Tiny Twist | Vivianna Does Makeup | What I Heart Today | What Olivia Did | Yvetvdn

A Little Beauty Vlog | Beautycrush | Essiebutton | Ghostparties | I Covet Thee | Tanya Burr | Vivianna Does Makeup | What I Heart Today | Zoella

Bambina* | Find Love at Sea* | Dumblewhore | I heart Topshop | Peau-Rose | Baby Blue Belle*

Beauty Reads
Into The Gloss | Olsens Anonymous | Elle UK

So I’m guessing I’ve just sorted your afternoons out for you, hopefully you’ll find some new blogs in there that you haven’t come across before. I do follow a fair few more blogs than this, but if I mentioned everyone this post would be even longer than it already is, and if I did that then I would also want to give all of my regular readers/commenters a shout out too, and then this post would probably be bigger than I am and we can’t have that.

Let me know if you have any favourites that I haven’t mentioned. I love reading, whether it’s a book, magazine or blog, so definitely let me know if there’s something out there I’m missing!

    Most of your favourite bloggers / vloggers are mine too! I'm subscribing more than 150 blogs and I just don't have enough time to read them all, it sounds ridiculous but it makes me happy that there are many bloggers talking about beauty and fashion which I enjoy a lot. I love your blog, yours is definitely on my "Favourite blogs 2012" and I'm looking forward to reading more posts in 2013 🙂

    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I'm getting sick and tired of WordPress because I've had problems with hackers and
    I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
