I wanted to show recognition for my favourite bloggers over the last year who have inspired me to start my own blogging journey. The bloggers/vloggers that I mention are the ones that I follow religiously, on pretty much all social media and their websites.

I was first introduced to Lydia Millen on Sarah Ashcroft (That Pommie Girl)’s youtube channel. She is an amazing all-round blogger, as she writes about beauty, fashion, lifestyle, health and fitness, and most recently she has started doing home interior. Lydia’s writing is passionate and such a nice, relaxing read. She seems like such a genuine, down to earth girl which means her blog is relatable and gives you lots of inspiration. She also finds the best bargains and deals on designer handbags which is amazing if you’re looking for the perfect, timeless piece!

Poppy Deyes’ blog focuses a lot on photography, so she has some beautiful images. She has a background in fine art which explains why her blog revolves around her images and then uses writing for more detail. I came across Poppy’s blog when I was watching Zoella’s 24 days of Vlogmas, and I have kept up to date with her blog ever since! If I was ever going to have my own web design created, I would definitely use Poppy’s as inspiration because even though it’s simplistic it is really effective with her images.

I have followed Sarah Ashcroft on all social media platforms for the past year or 2 now. I feel like I have seen her progress so far that it gives me belief that I can achieve the same! Her blog focuses on beauty and fashion which is completely her niche! Her YouTube tutorials for different beauty look are my favourite videos to watch and try and recreate. I think Sarah is a perfect role model to all girls to just put themselves out there and conquer any insecurities. I would absolutely love to meet this girl as I think she would be such fun to be around.

Initially, I started watching Tanya Burr’s videos on YouTube, and then went on to start reading her blog. Both her vlogs and blogs are well though out and full of her bubbly personality. Glamour magazine featured Tanya as their cover girl for their December 2015 issue, which just goes to show her massive achievements! Tanya is a trained makeup artist so I would 100% recommend her beauty tips and tutorials as she really knows what she’s talking about. My guilty pleasure is her videos with Martha (her Dachshund) in, because I would love to have one of my own.

Zoella – zoella.co.uk
I had heard about Zoella a lot before I actually started reading her blog and watching her YouTube channel. I’d never been big on watching YouTubers, but now I’ve started I can’t stop! As I mentioned earlier, I watched all of Zoella’s Christmas videos (yes, on both of her channels) and have come to love her! She is so fun and sweet and puts so much effort into whatever she does. I think it is all the time and effort she puts in that has resulted in her the massive success, which she completely deserves! You can find anything from beauty tips or style ideas to baking and DIY on her blog on YouTube channel.
