It’s Christmas Eve!!! I can’t ruddy believe it. This month has gone so fast, that I almost feel like Bernard and his watch have been around playing and paused time on the 1st of December, then pressed go again and it’s now the 24th. Okay that made absolutely no sense, but hopefully you get what I mean.
What I’m trying to say is: where has this month gone?
I don’t even know if I feel Christmassy you know, how bad is that? I feel a bit bad, because I never actually did much in December. Our festive weekend got cancelled due to snow, I’ve not visited a Christmas market, and I feel like my Christmas spirit has been a bit non existent this year which makes me feel a bit sad. Maybe I’m getting old, or maybe I’m just putting too much pressure on myself to feel all festive? Who knows.
Anyways, I’m waffling on as per usual. So today is the second to last day of blogmas, and I was thinking ‘hmm what should I do for today’s post?’ I was going to do a standard post about what I look forward to over Christmas, or some kind of Christmas Eve memory post, but I thought you know what, let’s do something else and I thought that I’d do a post all about my favourite bloggers and Instagrammers in 2017.
I’m not sure if I’ll end up blogging over the Christmas break, I’m of course incredibly fortunate to be able to take a break over Christmas, and I’m thinking I may hide my laptop and have a few days away from being online. So I thought that I’d do a bit of a round up now of my fave bloggers, I also thought if you can’t share the love on Christmas Eve then when can you?
I still love reading blogs, and writing posts is still one of my favourite things to do. Here are some of my favourite bloggers from the year who’s posts I never miss.
Sophie’s Make Up: I think I’ve mentioned Sophie before, but I want to mention her again, as her blog is one of my faves. I love her photogprahy, and her flat lays are actual flatlay goals. She also seems so sweet too!
Apartment Number 4 : I love Victoria’s blog for home decor inspo, her weekly newsletter is always a weekly highlight too! Her post on the book The Secret recently, really inspired me, and I bought the book to read over Christmas. It’s been a long time since a blog post really inspired me, and I always love seeing her new posts.
WearDaisyWent : OMG Daisy’s blog has the dreamiest of blog photography. I swoon over every single post!
Mariannan: I’ve been reading Marianna’s blog for years, and it remains one of my faves. I love her short personal posts, and this is something I want to do more of in 2018. I think I’ll always read and love Marianna’s blog, I think I’ve been following her for about 7 years now!
Lust Living : I’m going to warn you now, that reading Olivia’s blog will give you total house envy. Her interior taste is amazing and I would happily pay for her to come decorate my house. She’s also started YouTube too recently which made me so happy!
The Little Plum: Chloe’s blog has really gone from strength to strength this year, and that’s cause her blog is so different to many others out there ATM. She’s made me feel inspired to start writing real posts again, I feel like I’ve got lost in a sea of Pinterest and trying to be brand friendly, whilst Chloe nails it. She does personal but is also still brand friendly, I think I want to be more like Chloe in 2018. One of her latest posts on YouTube had me nodding my head along for the most part, and when a blog makes you do that, you know it’s a good un!
The Skinny Confidential : Lauyrn’s blog is everything I want from a blog, it’s real, no bullshit, but also still really aesthetically pleasing. I love Lauryn and her podcasts and I never miss a post from her. The only thing is, I want everything she recommends so not great for my bank balance!
What She Did : I met Beth this year at a blogging event in Essex, where we realised we lived 10 mins away from each other! Crazy! I’ve gotten to know Beth over the year, and I’m always so inspired by her work ethic. She is one of the most creative and hardworking bloggers I know, and she does everything from her phone. I genuinely think she’s some kind of superhero. Her make up looks are insane, and you must go follow her.
WeAreTwinset: I want you to say hello to my fashion idols of 2017. Sarah and Philippa are absolutely gorgeous and so stylish. They nail that simple but stylish look, and wear a lot of high street which I love! I usually find myself scrolling through their feed when I need outfit inspo!
Jess C Hamilton : Jess is one of the biggest babes around and her Instagram is full of the most amazing pictures. She is like something from Pinterest and she has the most creative ideas for photos. I literally save every single photo of hers!
Hello October : Suzie has been one of my faves for many years, and this year that has continued. I rarely miss one of her videos, and I love her whole vibe. I’ve also been loving her more lifestyle/home content that she’s been doing this year!
Lydia Elise Millen: You’ll probably all know Lydia and follow her already, but she has been one of my faves this year. I love her vlogs, and her wedding content has been really interesting (and also made me want to actually get into wedding planning mode!) I can’t wait to see more vlogs about her wedding as it looked beautiful!
Fashion Slave : I love Sophie’s videos and her Instagram too, she wears the most amazing outfits, has the most heart eye worthy hair and her hauls make me want to spend!
I could probably go on all day, but these are the girls who have inspired me this year with their posts, videos and photos. I would love to know who your fave bloggers have been this year?
I will pop up a quick Christmas post tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for that, but I hope you all have a lovely Christmas Eve!
