It’s no secret that blogging has
blown up BIG TIME over the last two years! I’ve been blogging for the last year
but I’ve been following & reading other people’s blogs for a lot longer,
and so I wanted to dedicate a post to the OG’s that have inspired &
motivated me along the way!
I first discovered the bloggers
in this list from their fashion or beauty posts, but I have stuck with them
over the years for many other reasons. Whether it’s because their work-ethic
ignites my urge to do better myself, or their style is just GOALS, or better
yet, that they use their platform for the greater good, I love them all!
There are bound to be people I
love but have accidentally missed out of my round up, but the list of gals
below are my absolute blogging BAEs of the moment;

This lady is the epitome of
STYLE. GOALS. In every way possible!
She takes ABSOLUTELY stunning
blog photos, whether it be beauty flatlays or shots of her gorgeous home! Her
style is instantly recognisable and she is a style inspiration for so many
upcoming bloggers, including me! Her style is feminine and completely on trend,
and I can’t help but want to own everything she owns! I’m literally decorating
our new house with her style and Pinterest boards as a the main influence…! Seriously,
check her out. You will not be disappointed! In fact, you’ll be ADDICTED in no

This gyal is the bee’s knees!
Grace was the first YouTuber I ever watched regularly and the first blog I ever
read – and she has only gotten stronger in her social-influence game! But
aside from this, Grace is a huge inspiration to so many since her drive to
spread the message of body positivity. An advocate for mental health and eating
disorders, this brilliant woman uses her platform for the greater good more
than anyone I know. She is CONSTANTLY supporting women through her social media
channels and has worked with the BBC to produce some amazing documentaries. She’s
working on her first book at the moment & I can’t wait to get my hands on

Anna is the QUEEN of understated
style & beauty! I love literally every post she puts up & every video I
see in my Subscription box from her! She is so down to earth and relatable,
while still being ‘lady’ goals! I love everything about her content, from her
home décor to her capsule wardrobe how-to’s! I’ve recently took a complete U-turn
when it comes to make up, taking my ridiculous collection of 90% crap, down to
a capsule collection of higher-end favourites, and it’s all down to Anna! If you’re
looking for over-the-top, Insta-glam beauty, you’ve got the wrong one! Anna’s
whole aesthetic (from her home to her daily make up routine) is all things
understated, all things lady-like and ALL things stylish! Basically…I just want to be her!

This Canadian babe is a beauty
& style OG! I think Estée has been blogging & vlogging for about 8
years now, and I have been thoroughly enjoying catching up on all her old vlogs
and beauty videos for the last couple of months. Aesthetically, she has come a
loooooong way from when she first started, but her personality is exactly the same! She is so honest and real,
and really tells it like it is!
I love her beauty style, which
is, like Anna, understated and effortless. Her home, which she shares with
boyfriend Aslan, is a real thing of absolute Scandinavian, Mid-Century Modern
beauty! But as well as all that, I love the pro-female message she uses her
platform to spread. She is a proud feminist, who actively promotes people and
books that are central to the Feminist movement.
I feel like I really get to know
her & Aslan in their vlogs – my favourites the ‘at home, doing nothing’
There are many other great bloggers I regularly keep up
with, but the babes above are my favourites at the moment – Let me know who
your favourites are in the comments!
