Take it from me: Blogs you need to read

Take it from me: Blogs you need to read


In the big wide world of blogging, you can literally find a blog on anything. From beauty and fashion to cooking and crafts, it’s actually hard sometimes to find one that you love. So here are my list of top blogs you need to read. If you want to that is, I’m not telling you what to do or anything.

Alisha LeMay

I stumbled across this beautiful lady on Instagram about 6 months ago and I have loved her posts ever since. Mainly fashion based, Alisha, from Essex, states how she went from working part-time in Topshop then climbing the ranks to a Head Office and Central London Area & Visual Creative role. Expanding her horizons she began blogging alongside her working hours using her posts as a way to provide outfit ideas and details to people ranging in style, price and providing personal shopping services. Her beautifully created blog entails everything from fashion and beauty to travel and food.

Lydia Elise Millen

I highly doubt you have never heard the name, this stunning Milton Keynes gal is every bit the inch of designer goddess and beauty maniac. I came across Lydia’s blog when searching through Youtube for some beauty videos, I found her channel and literally binge watched her videos right from the beginning. There’s just something about her personality that is warm and genuine. Regularly featured on her channel is boyfriend Ali Gordon and Bengal cat Lumi. Her blog provides look books, make-up looks and product reviews, although most of her looks are created using designer makeup and clothing (something that I presently cannot afford) her blog posts read beautifully and I am always hooked to see what comes next.

My Daily Obsessions

Rosie, 25 living just outside of London runs www.mydailyobsessions.co.uk a lifestyle blog featuring beauty, food & drink and thoughts and lifestyle. With her beautiful pictures of beauty products and food her blog makes a wonderful read with regular posts uploaded every week. I came to be aware of Rosie’s blog after being added into an Instagram pod of bloggers who chat and support each other with all things blogging. It’s a wonderful pod of people with all different stories to tell, but my daily obsessions stood out to me initially. I love reading through her posts and seeing the amazingly photographed product photos. Which is why I just had to include her in my blogs you need to read.
