Blogging can be tough. Especially for a newbie blogger. Sometimes it feels all we do is promote, promote promote and results can be deflating. Blogging is also a world filled with support and love from other bloggers (which can be super empowering), so when Becky from The Lifestyle Blogger UK came up with a wonderful idea for a blogging collaboration, I was eager and excited to be involved. Awesome Bloggers is a blogging introduction series to help blogs reach a new readership, help build links and new relationships between bloggers and more importantly to have a little bit of fun. So do make sure you pop on over to any of the blogs below that appeal to you, leave a quick comment and show support. We all know how much this can bring a smile to someones face!
Becky is a beauty and lifestyle blogger based in the UK. Her blog is absolutely jam packed with honest reviews, life lessons, hacks, yummy recipes (I particularly like the Salted Caramel Brownie) and tips. Becky’s posts are brilliant, if you want a lighthearted lifestyle post to read, check out her thoughts on Toilet’s In America. She’s worked with company’s such as Pandora, Ebay and Eat Sleep Doodle just to say the least, and her testimonial from these company’s are so positive. You can tell from her sites look and content that Becky is such a hard worker, so do check her out!
As you can probably tell from the name of the site, Leanne over at Polished by Leanne, loves all things nails – which I think is super refreshing to see in the world of beauty. I mean seriously check out her incredible Blood Splattered Nails for Halloween, AND she still see’s herself as a novice. Pretty talented right? Leanne’s posts are so friendly to read, and she features beauty and lifestyle posts on the site too. I really enjoyed reading Support Smaller Businesses This Christmas – not only does it make us super jealous of how organised she is starting Christmas shopping already but she gives us a lovely list of companies that could be lovely potential Christmas buys and her feedback/experience with those.
Steph has a degree in Interior Design so it goes without saying that her blog was going to include the element of interier, but she also writes about her other interests such as beauty, lifestyle and wedding planning. Her posts on Weddings are ones that I will be keenly watching out for with planning a wedding myself, so I excitedly read her Engagement Shoot. It was so nice to see London transformed, go check out the pictures and you will see what I mean!
If you are a lover of anything lifestyle, beauty or fashion, I would definitely pop on over to Zainab’s blog. When you first enter, the site is so simple and clear it makes navigation super easy and stress free. Her theme really does fit with her fashion and lifestyle niche. Zainab is great if you love celebrity style and checking out pictures of them in different outfits and situations – I enjoyed her round up on Emma Watson‘s street style. Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express is a product that I use so I was eager to read up what Zainab thought – I love how Zainab covers everything from product availability to her own opinions in terms of pros/cons. It’s a super detailed and very well loved beauty review post, so if that’s your thing…visit visit visit!
Naomi is a beauty, lifestyle and like me, a bit of everything goes blogger. You can see that when visiting her site. She covers tips such as How to use Twitter for your Blog to posts on her opinions about beauty products. I enjoyed reading about her Love Me Beauty box, she really writes in a friendly, easy to read way and it was interesting to see what she thought about each product (and it made me realise that the box is well worth the money so it’s on my to do list I think!). If you do want to get a feel for Naomi a little more, check out her Liebster Award post – as you know this includes some fun facts and helps you learn about the blogger that little bit more. I learnt we both love the show Friends. What can you learn?
Upon gathering information for this blogger collab, I learnt that Beck Beauty XO is a new blog (it was a week old to be exact!).But that hasn’t stopped 21 year old Beck. Beck is a mother of 2 but that doesn’t define her blog. She created the page to help others like her understand that make up doesn’t have to be expensive and that you can love any brand! Beck is pretty much a pro-budget beauty blogger, and you know what I love that. When reading her beauty post on her Essence Haul, which she raided the sale box where products were as little as 10p, it’s clear that Beck is bang on trend with her love of nude nails. I never even thought to visit Wilkinson’s for some cheap budget make up, so thanks for that Beck! Do visit her page.
Jadey Lou xxx is a beauty blogger. Her site is lovely and colourful and really moulds nicely with her brand. She aims to help other people like herself get the most out of beauty, helping them to get the best buys and products. I was interested to read her thoughts on Garnier Micellar Water after doing a review myself as part of my skincare regime – we shared similar thoughts on the product, but check out her review to see what you think. Jadey Lou has a great use of her own images, I think her post on Technic Make Up really showcases this, especially with the colour swatches on her eye. Lets the readers connect a little bit more with her reviews. But again, if your interested in lots of lovely reviews on beauty and all things related. Check her out! It’s clear she has a passion and I think she does a brilliant job!
Last but not least we have Han, over at Han Meets World, which is a lifestyle blog packed full of inspiration. Han has dedicated sections to her site, covering posts on Fashion, Healthy Eating, a section named ‘In The City’ which is enriched with lots of lovely inspiring personal posts and Business & Enterprise. I think my favourite section is In the City and in that section her post on her decision to move to London and the journey is brought, see Challenging My Identity. I think this post is one that really connects with the readers and helps us to see who Han is – and what her page is going to be about. She sets goals for herself, but also her words really inspire me. Go and have a root around on her page and see what appealing to you, there’s plenty to get your teeth into.
So there you have it. Eight absolutely AWESOME Bloggers, all tackling their chosen niches brilliantly. I could sit and ramble about their sites for ages, but the best way to truly understand what they do and how they do it is to visit! There is so much more to them all than their ‘niche’ title gives them, and all have such personal, friendly touches in each post. Share the love for these bloggers and pop on over, get some karma out in the bloggersphere!
