1) As most of you know I read a lot of blogs, so this will be hard to choose! Of course my number 1 pick is my friend Diana who writes a great blog at Dianasmakeupblog. Diana is a young woman living in London and she is so knowledgeable about skin care I was very impressed. That is what drew me to her blog and her You Tube videos but over the past few months I have come to know Diana as a very sweet genuine person with a big heart. She is very smart in a lot of fields, not just skin care besides the fact that she is very pretty and I like to watch her You Tube videos because she has an adorable accent. You can find her You Tube videos here.. Please go to her channel and subscribe, it would mean a lot to me and to her.
2). My second choice has to be Amy at sugarmitten. This is one of the first nail blogs I started to follow many months ago. Then Amy took some time off from blogging but I was still following through Twitter. I got to see all the places Amy traveled to, I believe Mom was visiting from back east? correct me if I’m wrong, Amy, but I thoroughly enjoyed the pictures Amy tweeted, even though there was no blog post I was still following. And then 1 great day, in my inbox was a new blog post from Sugarmitten. yay!
3). Latoya at Beauty-Obsessedis one of my favorite blogs. Toya is a young woman who lives on the opposite side of the Americas from me and we couldn’t be more opposite but yet I like her. She travels to far off places and writes about her adventures at the beauty counters. She does great reviews for both high end and drug store type make up. I like her pictures and she is great at showing swatches in different lights. You never know what Toya will talk about next, and I like that.
4) Amanda (Mae) at Mae’s Beautyis a very sweet girl who writes about different beauty items, not just nail polish but she will post an EOTD (Eye of the Day) or a FOTD which I enjoy. She does a very good job with make up and gives great instructions on how to achieve the look. I have followed her blog for a very long time, long before I started my little blog. I was beyond thrilled when I noticed she had my blog listed on her blog roll. My heart still goes a beat or two faster thinking about that. She also does great nail art. Let’s not forget about the nails altogether.
5) Teresa at BeautyOnABudgetdoes a great job at finding all the deals out there for drug store make up. I appreciate all the hard work it must take to keep up with all the sales.
6.) Taylor at My Lucite Dreamshas a beautiful blog with beautiful pictures. Not that I’m jealous of them or anything. Okay, yes, I am jealous of the pictures they are stunning. Taylor also showcases and reviews beautiful make up and other higher end items. Taylor, I was this close to purchasing a diptyque candle from your post the other day. Then I got out my handy dandy tape measure and when I realized I was about to drop $98 on a 2.5″ candle it was it time to walk away from the iPad, put my debit card away and think of something else, like what’s for dinner? I was close though. So close. To me that is a great writer, and with her beautiful blog she is pure pleasure to read.
Of course I love a bunch more, too many to list here, but these are my favorites right now and I think they totally deserve Blog of the Year Award!
💅As always, thanks for stopping by.
