June Blog Share

Lifestyle, Lists

Hola chicas. Today I am bringing you my favourite blog posts from the past month. I usually find blogs through Twitter so unless I see some new content retweeted onto my timeline, I don’t generally see any fresh blogs which is a shame so I’ve been actively scrolling through hashtags and retweet accounts to find some new blogs and to spread some love in the blogging community so please have a wander through these blogs and share the love too.

Nominate 6+ bloggers deserving of this award.
Ask your nominees 3 questions.

My questions from Charlotte are:

What were some of the reasons you started blogging?

I have been wanting to try blogging for years but I never had the guts to put myself out there for everyone to judge and maybe even laugh at. I decided to just go for it this year and I’m glad I did. I really enjoy writing my posts and I love it when people take the time to read or comment too. This blog started as an online diary but I can feel myself getting more confident and now I finally have a use of my mountain of untouched stationery YAYAY!

When you’re feeling down, what are the things you enjoy doing to make yourself feel better?

I am a firm believer in the theory that a nap solves everything. Any bad day I have, no matter how awful I feel, if I go for a nap I will always wake up feeling better. But, if I am unable to nap for whatever reason then I usually watch cheesy movies and laugh the pain away!

If you had to choose between living without skincare for a month, or living without beauty products, what would you choose and why? 

I don’t wear make up often so I could definitely live without beauty products. My skin is mostly even and blemish-free so I get away without wearing make up except on nights out and big occasions. I don’t think I’d be able to live without moisturiser because my skin can get very dry.

I nominate:

Discovering Charlotte (www.discoveringcharlottelucy.blogspot.com– Charlotte is such a kind and lovely person. I love her outfit posts and she seems like a really genuine woman.

Colours and Carousels (www.coloursandcarousels.com) – Another Charlotte who is just a Scottish delight! Her blog recently turned 5 and her post on how blogging has influenced her over the years is inspiring! And her photography is just perf!

Melissa Zia (www.melissazia.co.uk) – Melissa is a lovely blogger who makes the best smoothies ever! Seriously, they look delicious. And so does her banana bread. I love her lipstick collection too.

Little Katie’s Little Thoughts (www.littlekaatie.blogspot.co.uk) – Katie is another lovely Scottish lass whose outfit posts are constantly making me jealous. She’s a genuinely lovely person and her post on self-worth is so empowering.

Le Beau Fleur (www.lebeaufleur.blogspot.com) – Chelsea is a lovely blogger and I love her beauty reviews. She recently did a Dating Disasters post which is hilarious and you should definitely go read it.

Beauty and the Mechanic (www.beautyandthemechanic.wordpress.com) – Shannon is a Disney fanatic with an adorable Simba tattoo – go check it out. I love her Bucket List posts where she goes through her Bucket List and explains why she added it. It has definitely given me more to add to mine!
