Top Blogs Of 2014

Happy New Year everybody! I hope that you all had a good Christmas too. So 2014 has been and gone, and 2015 is here already - can you believe it?! I thought that I would start this year's posts off with a positive one about my top blogs of 2014, to hopefully introduce you to some new reads! There are a lot of blogs that I read regularly, but, after a lot of debating with myself, I decided that these nine that are probably my most-read.

1. Rebecca-Louise from Autumn Leaves Rebecca-Louise's blog is definitely one of my favourites! She writes about all sorts of things including reviews and hauls, but my favourites have got to be her blogging tips. If you need any sort of help with most things blog orientated then this is really the one that you need to look at! 

2. Beth from Bird's Words Bird's Words is probably one of the first blogs that I ever followed, and actually inspired me a lot! Beth has always had quite girly blog designs, which is probably what grabbed me about her blog at first, plus it actually gave me inspiration for my own previous designs. Blog design aside, her photography is always absolutely gorgeous (I was asking her on Twitter to do a post about her photography setup, since I wish that my photos looked as pretty)! I love the posts that she does aswell, as they are all very beauty orientated, detailed and exactly the sort of products I like/wish I owned.

3. Em from Em Talks Em Talks is a blog about basically everything - whether it's chic outfits, beauty, lifestyle, travel, food, Em has blogged about it! Her photography is pretty and clear, aswell as having a minimalist blog design, making everything easy to follow. I really enjoyed reading Em's posts on her travels around Canada and the US too, as it seemed like she had an amazing time!

4. Victoria from In The Frow I'm sure that In The Frow is one that most of you will have heard of! With her iconic pastel purple hair (who really isn't atleast slightly jealous of the fact that she can pull that off?), stunning outfits and pretty photography this is definitely a blog that you should have a read of. Victoria also got signed to Gleam recently (the agency that manages Zoella, Tanya Burr and that gang) so I guess that shows how good her blog and Youtube channel must be!

5. Joëlle from La Petite Noob I have pretty much read La Petite Noob since Joëlle began it in 2013, after spotting some of her outfits on Instagram! Her posts are almost all fashion orientated, and she somehow makes every one look gorgeous, whilst also making me very jealous of her wardrobe. Quite a few of her outfits also seem to have a Parisian feel to them which I really like, plus her photos are all lovely! This is definitely a blog that you really must have a read of, as you won't be disappointed.

6. Pauline from Living The Healthy Choice Stepping away from beauty and fashion blogs for a minute, Living The Healthy Choice is actually a food blog! It is all about healthy recipes, packed full of fruit and vegetables, that look and taste amazing. This is another blog that I discovered via Instagram, and I'm so glad that I did! I avidly followed the pretty food photos that Pauline posted (and still do), meaning that it was quite exciting when I saw that she was starting a blog. If you're on the lookout for any healthy recipe ideas then you really must have a look here! 

7. Helen from The Lovecats Inc There are very few blogs that make me think "wow, I need that outfit" with almost every fashion post that they do, but Helen has managed to do that! Among her amazing outfits, her photography is gorgeous, her beauty posts are lovely and you must look at some of her recipe posts, because they will make you feel seriously hungry. 

8. Kathryn from This Outlet This Outlet is another blog that I've followed for absolutely ages, I actually think that I was the first ever follower! Kathryn mainly blogs about fashion and beauty, aswell as the odd lifestyle post, and has lovely photography. She also has an amazing blog design business (Kathryn actually designed my current and previous designs), so make sure that you have a look at that here if you're on the lookout for a new design for the new year.

9. Megan from Thumbelina Lillie Last one now! Thumbelina Lillie is a fashion and beauty blog, filled with gorgeous photography (just take a look at Megan's posts on the Charlotte Tilbury products and you will see what I mean). This is a blog that I've read on and off for atleast a year now, but it's only in the past few months that I've really gotten into it! Megan has also given me serious brow envy, I mean they look far too perfect! If you're looking for some cute outfits or great reviews then definitely have a read.
