The blogging community has been amazing this year. It’s just full of some extremely motivational and inspiring people that has continued to grow excessively online. I’ve not met many bloggers this year, something I would love to change, but I have spoken to quite a few online. On days where I feel like utter poop, guaranteed I can go online and there will be someone waiting with some good advice or to cheer me up with their 140 character words. I don’t think I could end 2016 without sharing the ones that I go to daily for a read or to listen to what they need to say.
Lauren is definitely my favourite blogger this year. She deserves so many more followers than what she has for a number of different reasons. She is so supportive and is always there when I am feeling down or upset. I just hope that she feels as though I repay the favour sometimes. Her blog is amazing and I love reading about her mental health posts. It makes me feel as though I am not the only one dealing with anxiety and that there are other people who understand part of what you are going through on a daily basis.
I can’t write this post without mentioning my North East blogging babe, Alice. I feel as though Alice and I have really developed our friendship this year. Whenever I need some time away from a screen, or an outfit photoshoot day then Alice is always there. She works so hard on her blog, and don’t you bother questioning that because I have seen what she does behind the scenes, and she has some top notch photography skills too.
The V Nice Life is the place that I turn too for vegan friendly inspiration. Sarah has worked so hard over the past year, growing not only her blog into something fantastic for vegans to turn to but also her YouTube channel has given me so much inspiration. A couple of my favourites have been her Cruelty Free Faves and the Vegan Weekly shopping videos. Sarah has worked super hard all year and has continually provided me without support on just about anything that I have asked Twitter this year.
Sarah’s blog is one that I have read since the very beginning. I would love to have the chance to meet Sarah one day because she is so positive and inspirational. The overall quality of her blog, especially her photography skills have grown so much since last year. Even I want to try and step my photography up a notch. Her content is so relatable and down to earth that I could sit and read her blog all day long.
Gemma Louise is one my favourite beauty bloggers that I have discovered in 2016. God only knows how she is able to take amazing photographs, write fantastic content and look after Reuben, who is just adorable! Her content is just so motivational and inspiring. I love her images, it’s close to an obsession because it’s just so beautiful and dreamy.
Brogan is one of the most down to earth vloggers that I have ever watched. She has been through so many ups and downs this year but continually smiles and works so hard for everything that comes her way. Her YouTube channel as took massive steps this year and I’ve loved watching it grow into something rather special. When I watch her vlogs and see what she goes through, it makes me feel as though I am not alone in life and that people do go through some rubbish periods. What I have learnt from Brogan this year is that I can make anything happen if I put my mind too it and that’s what I want to concentrate on next year.
Whenever I am feeling down and need a bit of a laugh, Sophie Louise is always on my screen making me smile. I don’t think I have watched one video from her all year that hasn’t made me laugh or put me in a good mood. Similar to Brogan, Sophie works so hard on her channel and I have loved watching it grow.
Hannah’s channel is one that I have come across in the back end of 2016 but she is like the internet’s big sister. I have been really enjoying her Hormone Dairies because it makes me feel normal about what us girls have to deal with when it’s that time of the month. She is so down to earth but at the same time is an inspiration to women across the internet wanting to do their own thing.
Ellie is one of my favourite YouTubers that I have come across this year. If your the type of person to really enjoy the down to earth, talking about everything kind of channels then I would highly suggest subscribing to NinkComPoop. I love watching all of her videos because they are just so natural. It shows that you don’t need any fancy lighting and to look perfect 24/7 in order to create videos. Her relationship with Adam is ridiculously cute and I really hope that I get the chance to meet her someday because she is just a beautiful human being inside and out.
Rhianna has absolutely killed 2016! I don’t even know where to begin. She looks after an inspiring Instagram that everybody is heart-eyeing after, an incredible blog with lots of down to earth content to dive your heads into, a Twitter account that is hilariously funny and a YouTube channel which I am in love with. I don’t know about anyone else but I reckon she is the social media queen right now! Can I meet up with you over a coffee and popcorn so you can share your secrets please? Rhianna works so hard and it’s definitely paying off, I can’t wait to see what she brings to the blogosphere next year.
What blogs have you been loving this year? I would definitely give some of these girls a read/watch because they have made my year!
