2013 Favourites: Bloggers & Vloggers

Updating my blogroll is genuinely one of my favourite things to do (admin-wise) on the blog. Not just because I giggle a little every time I miss spell and end up writing “bog roll”. Just me? But seriously, there’s nothing more inspiring that reading other peoples blogs. The following are the cream of my bloglovin’ crop for 2013…


Bonjour Luce

My favourite girl, how could I not pop her at the top? Luce really does work incredibly hard on her blog and has so much get-up-and-go I can’t quite believe it. Her photos are beautiful and her love of shopping even gives me a run for my money.

Raspberry & Red

You know those blogs you just get completely engrossed in and before you know it an hour has gone by? Weronika just gets me every time, her posts are just so beautiful and inspiring, and I’m becoming addicted to her YouTube channel too.

What Olivia Did

Oh Liv, the first blogger that made me really love reading blogs. I met her at the Cosmo blog awards and she really is the loveliest lady. Her photos and writing (and face) are just *insert heart eye’d emoji*.

Ghost PartiesNouvelle Daily

Kate is honestly super woman in my opinion. She works so hard running Ghost Parties and Nouvelle Daily and fitting in her day to day life as well. I take my hat of to her. Oh and Mouse (her cat) – SO. DARN. CUTE. 

Love Cloth

Possibly the most adorable lady I’ve ever met. And her style is impeccable.

Liana Beauty

I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone with as much energy as Amelia, she really is just the cutest. I note down all her recommendations, especially skincare – in fact I exited boots just last week with an Amelia-influenced purchase.

From Roses

Rebecca’s blog is so clean and well laid out, it really appeals to the organisational obsessive in me. Her style is just perfect and I swear I must have liked every single one of her instagram photos this year.

This Chicks Got Style
Oh the hair *drools*. Aside from the hair obsession TCGS is another one of those blogs that I get lost in, and before I know it i’m reading posts from 2012.

Jenny Purr
Jenny works incredibly hard on her blog, she’s always testing new products and I genuinely love scribbling her recommendations down.

Come Over To The Dark Side
Amazing blog name, amazing style, amazing face. I don’t think there’s anything I dislike about Cindy’s blog. *applauds*


I Covet Thee

Oh Alix, where do I start? Alix’s blog and YouTube has grown amazingly this year, and with good reason. Her videos are always so well produced and her blog content is never anything but perfect.

Hannah Maggs

Earlier this year Hannah announced she was having her first little babba, and I couldn’t have been more excited for her. After the first pregnancy vlog I was hooked and I’ve loved watching her vlogs so much this year.

Tanya Burr

Because you can’t not include Miss Burr, can you? I love watching Tanya’s videos so much (especially Vlogmas) and always take the time to watch her tutorials. Meeting her this year was amazing and she really is incredibly lovely.

Lily Melrose

I’ve loved watching Lily’s channel this year. I feel like she’s come into her own and she has a great sense of humour. Both her channels are well worth a watch and I can’t wait to see what she has in store in the new year.

Lily Pebbles

Lovely Lily. I love watching her videos as she always has brilliant recommendations (especially on skincare), her get ready with me’s featuring her bathroom always have me drooling and crying over the fact that my bathroom is currently yellow *sobs*.

Vivianna Does Makeup

Anna rules when it comes to a well produced video. End of.

Personally, I feel we should continue the blog love – leave me all your favourites in the comments and I will check them out (for those cheeky souls out there – don’t put yourself!).

    For YouTube videos I think that Katy(HelloKatyxo) is great-you can tell by her editing that she puts a lot of effort into her videos. For blogs I'd say (if you don't already know them) Parisian to Be and Jessica Beautician.

    Now I going to spend my day going through that list. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love all of those bloggers/vloggers. In particular I think Alix from I Covet Thee is so underrated for what she does on youtube!

    I'd recommend Kassia Poh
    and Lucy Wood on Youtube.

    Bloggers that I think are worth a mention also are Megs from Wonderful You

    I honestly have a problem noting all of Amelia's recommendations–if I bought them all I'd be flat broke haha. She's definitely one of my all time favorite bloggers and I love that she does videos as well. (Also, the fact she always replies to her readers on twitter is just the sweetest thing!) I wish I could give you more blogs to read but you've listed most of my favorites as well! Oh–Velvet Gh0st is a lovely new-ish you tuber you should give a look ๐Ÿ™‚
