When I was nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award, at the end of the post I put links to some of my favourite blogs to read. I remember back in the day, (lol, how old am I?), when bloggers used to have dedicated blog roll sections of their blogs which had a list of their favourite bloggers. I find that nowadays, now every man and literally their dog has a blog, there’s not as much sharing of the love as there once was.
I’m changing that with this post.
I figured I’d do a quick round up of my favourite blogs to read right now to share the love and maybe you guys, (there’s more of you reading now apparently!), will find something else you like to read.
Let’s start with Blogueros Hispanohablantes:
Sara has created a beautiful space on the internet showcasing her fashion and travel, with etherial absolutely stunning photos with an amazing smile to go with it. She writes in both Spanish and English so very inclusive. There’s also a street style section for even more style inspo.
Stella Wants to Die
The name sounds pretty macabre, but Stella is pure fashuun. I love her relaxed, comfortable but chic as fuck style. She adds in the odd ‘inspo’ post too, which is usually a collection of street style photos.
I’m kind of ashamed to say that I don’t read that many Spanish blogs. I would love to though, so if you have any recommendations please holla holla.
Moving onto lifestyle and travel blogs. These are the blogs I tend to read as I am straight up nosey, I love peeking into other peoples lives. Like any other person under the age of 25 right now, I have the wanderlust bug, so travel blogs allow me to dream and somewhat plan for when I’m not a poor student living in my overdraft. Without further a do:
I have been following Rosie since maybe 2011. Back then her blog was still fairly small, so I have seen the change from then to now. I would say there has been a slight lack of authenticity and I find some photos and posts a bit contrived but this doesn’t detract from her enviable lifestyle jet setting around the globe. Amazing photos are usually a companied with a narrative style of writing which makes you feel like you’ve experienced everything with her. There’s years of posts so worth a blog binge. (Does anyone else do that or it is just me?)
Hi, umm, can we just be best friends please? I feel like Kenza is the epitome of a lifestyle blogger. Her entire life is on her blog, (since when she was just a teenager), which makes you feel like you really know her. She’s so real, open and frankly hilarious. She posts about the good, the bad and the ugly which I really appreciate seeing as most people only show the highlight reel to make themselves seem perfect. Her being so honest makes her so relatable. She posts life, fashion, travel and everything in between. She also has a youtube channel!
As the name suggests, this is a travel blog. A travel blog with itineraries, (‘Vacation Guides’), for almost every place you could think of. Something I really love about the way Jessica has created this blog is the organisation of the site. Travel posts are divided into continents and then into countries which makes planning, or day dreaming, so much easier. There are travel tips, photography tips and hotel recommendations which have a mixture of high end and budget stays.
Tourist of Life
A fairly new find, but one that I loved immediately. Yvonne, is a young blogger who has already accomplished so much. Her ‘about’ page is so inspiring but so are her travel posts, (which are again very well organised), and sublime photos. I know I cannot really comment on consistency, but I would love for her to post more regularly so I can get my Tourist of Life fix more often.
Other travel blogs I have recently started reading include:
Hippie in Heels
While I’m Young
Finally, a few sites which have a bit more depth. They address relevant issues and current topics:
G4RL: Girls 4 Realistic Love
Expect posts about love, sex and mental health. Subject matter includes what you would talk to your close friends about and things that you wouldn’t dare talk to your friends about too. The narrative is informative but fairly light hearted. I feel that sometimes, people try to make these topics easier to read and end up being cringe. Nikki however has perfected the way to make her posts humorous without being cringy or making the subject matter, which isn’t funny, into a joke.
Into The Fold Mag
Technically more of an e-zine than a blog, but it’s written by ordinary girls for ordinary girls. The baby of Camilla, (who writes IntoTheFold: The Blog), there’s something for everyone. From fashion, to beauty, to real life stories to interviews with influential women. I like to think of it as a community of girls just getting together and sharing their thoughts, feelings and experiences. I am all the way here for it.
So there you have a very quick roundup of my current faves. If there are any blogs you abso love leave me their links in the comments! I love finding new reads. It gives me some procrastination content and escape.
