SEVEN BLOGS YOU NEED TO BE FOLLOWING


When I started Brazen Brunette last fall I encouraged all my family and friends to follow me on Bloglovin.  For those who don’t know, Bloglovin is a blog subscription service that allows you to subscribe to all your favorite blogs and delivers a daily email with any new published content.  It makes life so much easier and puts all the new posts of the day in one spot for easy reading.  (If you want to subscribe to Brazen Brunette on Bloglovin click HERE!)  Now once said friends and family got around to following me (even my Dad follows me, #numberonefan) they had the question of what other blogs should I be reading?  Well I’m here with that answer.  Below I have seven of my all-time favorite blogs.  I absolutely adore all these ladies and would highly recommend following if you’re not already.  Without further ado...

  • Styled Snapshots  - If there is anyone’s closet I could raid on this list it would be hers.  Kendall Johnson’s fashion blog 'Styled Snapshots' is based in NYC, features gorgeous photography, and her adorable pup Hadley sneaks in a few cameos.  This girl has amazing style and the ensembles she puts together are actually stuff I could see myself wearing.  I also love that she features pieces that are affordable.  (Practicality is key for a middle class working girl who has a slight obsession with high-end lipgloss.) 
  • Oh She Glows  - I have been reading Angela Liddon’s natural food blog for years and she never disappoints.  All of her recipes are vegan, most with gluten-free substitutions, and I never met an Oh She Glows dish I didn’t like.  Her recipes do require a little extra effort, but I always feel great eating them and knowing I’m providing my body with such nutrient rich food.  Two of my favorites are her Vegan Enchiladas with Cilantro Cream Sauce and the Best Shredded Kale Salad.  
  • Corals and Cognacs - Hallie Wilson embodies girl power.  She is positive, up beat and has an amazingly witty and easy to read writing style.  Hallie recently quit her job in social media and blogs part-time along with being a Soul Cycle Instructor.  Her lifestyle blog features a little bit of everything and once you start reading you can’t stop…
  • The Beauty Look Book  - My go-to for swatches and reviews of all the newest beauty launches 'The Beauty Look Book' is an amazing beauty and skincare blog.  Sabrina's photography is always on point and I really trust her opinions on products.  The Southern California babe is uber talented and I love that she swatches products on her actual face/eyes/lips etc. and compares them to other similar products on the market.
  • World of Wanderlust - OMG.  Brooke Sawar can I just have your life??  This girl followed her dreams and became a full-time travel blogger.  She has been practically everywhere in the world and her site is jam packed with great travel advice and beautiful photography.  Oh, and she’s gorgeous and adorable to boot.
  • Essie Button  - Reading Estee’s blog and watching her YouTube channel feels like you’re spending time with your best friend.  I literally laugh out loud watching some of her videos.  This UK Beauty blogger is relatable, hilarious, and always has amazing recommendations.  And she can rock a statement lip like nobody’s business.
  • Maskcara The winner of many beauty blog awards, Cara Brooks blog 'Maskcara' is extraordinary.  This is my go-to blog for learning makeup techniques and watching tutorials and she explains everything in an easy to understand and approachable way.  I would highly recommend searching her archives if you’re looking for some tips on contouring, winged eyeliner, filling in eyebrows…you name it she’s got it.  The professional makeup artist also does a series dubbed “Makeover Monday” that I just love where she provides a weekly tutorial on a client.
And that is it, seven of my favorite blogs!  I hope you enjoyed this post and it gave you some Bloglovin inspiration.  If there are any blogs you would recommend please let me know in the comments below!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Monday :)
