cute as a button, every single one of you | favourite blogs

January 06, 2014

Reading blogs has been a big part of my life ever since I clicked on 'this must be pop' back in 2011. Back then, I was an avid music fan with a music blog (it was awful, don't ask) all about the latest goings on in the world of Girls Aloud, The Saturdays and The Wanted. I was even posting about the release of One Direction's first single. Crikey, that was a long time ago.
Over the years, my blog-roll has changed dramatically to include fashion, lifestyle, beauty and music blogs, so here is a look through my favourite blogs of 2013.

Jess' blog is primarily lifestyle, but I love that. I fell deeply in love with her blog after her trip to Auschwitz, it's a place I've always wanted to visit in the world because it holds so many secrets of the horrors of war, and Jess' write up of it made me speechless. If you check the comments of the post, you can see my admiration for her. (sound so much like a creepy stalker here oops) She also has a great taste in books and her photography is phenomenal.
Charlotte's blog is one that I've only foundrecently, but it's quickly become a firm favourite. Every post is unique and I can say that every time I click onto her page, I'm entertained and I can't say that about many blogs, you know you're doing something good when you can keep my attention for more than five minutes. (I also have Charlotte to thank for the blogger cards and I was featured in her desert island essentials series)
Georgina's blog is an old favourite, and if I'm perfectly honest always will be. I've missed her posts for the past few weeks, but after reading her latest post I've been able to understand why she hasn't updated. I have serious style envy over her, she looks stunning in every outfit and needs to have more confidence, and her new blog design is lovely as is her! (take a read and leave a comment on her blog please telling her she's great)
Another old favourite here, I've always admired Becky for her beautiful photography skills and her ability to make so many mean cakes and snacks. Her blog was the catalyst in me starting 'xoliviamae,' and I don't think you'll find a better all round blog anywhere. Just don't read any of the recipes if you don't want to put on weight. The chocolate orange cupcake recipie will make you a stone heavier within weeks. It's inevitable.
Last but certainly not least is Paige's blog. I found her Instagram before her blog and was amazed by the quality of the photos and how often she updated, and squealed when I found out she also wrote a blog. It's the perfect mix between fashion, beauty and lifestyle and it makes me happy. Her short but snappy posts are perfect for the procrastinator that is me!
What were your favourite blogs of 2013? Do you follow any of my favourites?
