Best of Week: Beauty Blogs & Vlogs


A week long of 2014 favourites wouldn’t be complete without sharing my most loved blog and vlogs from the past 12 months. Each blog is filled with inspiring photos, whitty text and genius content, these girls not only fill up my wish list, they also encourage me to better my blogging game. From the vloggers they are my creme de la creme of YouTube. Slick editing and varied content that keeps me hooked for every second.

From Roses – I adore Rebecca’s blog. From her beautifully composted crisp pictures to her honest reflections, I look forward to every post that she shares. Rebecca also posts about her fitness journey which inspires me to push myself more and conquer that gym. Also check out her Twitter – forever bringing the lolz.

Bonjour Luce – welcome to the epitome of curl envy. Cropped locks teamed with soft natural movement, I am forever in envy of Luce’s hair. She’s knows how to make short locks look beautiful! Moving aside from hair talk Bonjour Luce has a great mix of beauty and lifestyle posts including restaurant reviews that leave me drooling. If that isn’t enough, cute puppy picks over on her Instagram page – adorbs!

Like Neon Love – I fell for Tenneil initially from her Instagram page. Enviable beauty snaps, scrumptious looking dinners all from the gorgeous views of Australia. What’s not to love? Over on her blog you can expect all things beauty with a hint of lifestyle following her big life move.

A Little Opulent – beauty & lifestyle mecca this site is the brain child of both Rebecca and Jen. Their tastes combined with some brilliant feature contributors give a versatile online space that ranges from book reviews, music musings and posts that will spark the interest of any foodie.

That Grace Girl – bringing you beauty musings of Grace from Manchester, That Grace Girl has a  gorgeous blog design that ensures her key eye for product picks stands out. Her weekend ritual posts always encourage me to explore more within my local town and her love for writing truly shines through.

Bloomin’ Rouge – ah Holly, looks gorgeous in a red lip and leaves me constantly debating a nose piercing! Her clean photography is so inviting and leaves me rereading each post she shares. With great tips and a few YouTube videos live I can see Holly quickly rising in the blogging world.

Girl With Makeup – if you are looking for a fellow beauty obsessive that knows how to rock a winged liner, make sure you check out Emma. Her eye for detail resonates throughout her blog and I think she is simply lovely!

Thunder L0ve – beauty, fashion, lifestyle it’s all here from Natalie. With a new YouTube channel in the mix I love Natalie’s range of posts and honest snippets from her life. She also pulls together some seriously good skincare picks.

JennyPurr – Jen has quickly risen from a beauty blog to a space that shares tips and tricks alongside some great advice of how to build content that will make you proud. Jen’s scope of content inspired me to push the boundaries and break from that traditional beauty mould. A must for those who wish to push themselves and evaluate their online space.

Claire Marshall – if anyone says they are not a fan, they would be lying. Claire’s editing skills leave me speechless after each professional and talented video diary are shared with the world. Her vlogs – legit the best and her style makes me pine for Cali sun and killer legs.

Hello October – it’s hard not to adore Suzie. Over the past year her videos have gone from strength to strength and are some of the first I watch from my subscription box. With her adorable puppy Nala, enviable style and wardrobe it’s no wonder her videos receive the love they do.

Vivianna Does Makeup – Anna’s blog will forever be a staple within my subscription feed however her YouTube is a space I love to visit. Fab videos, varied content with stella weekly vlogs that always leave me with a smile on my face. Also – some of the best GRWT videos you’ll find on the net.

Belles Boutique – I’ve really loved watching and following Laura’s journey from being pregnant through to becoming a mummy. Her adorable son Harrison is a joy to watch and after years of reading her beauty blog it’s so nice to see her little family each week.

Lily Pebbles – another staple within the blogging/vlogging world Lily knows how to bring it with the slick editing when it comes to her videos. Her recent winter coat collection is so clever and after recently finishing her vlogmas playlist it makes me want it to be Christmas in the Lily Pebble household everyday!

Over to you! I love finding new blogs and vlogs to watch and read – what are some of your favourites and best finds from 2014?
