Lifestyle: The 50 Bloggers You Should Be Following

October 1, 2015

I’ve only been blogging for 9 months, but I don’t think I could ever imagine my life without the friends I have made, the events I have been to and the 100’s of new blogs I have discovered. I thought I would share with you my 50 favourite blogs that if you’re not already following, you should be!

Adele Louise Smith

Those of you that know me well will know that Adele is one of my best friends, but I wouldn’t have met her if I hadn’t of discovered her amazing blog first. Adele posts a lot of lifestyle posts and posts that are aimed at improving your lifestyle. She’s also posts lots of handy motivational tips which I swear by after a bad day, amazing recipes that look delicious and lots of reviews of her favourite healthy snacks!

Adele is also the other half of our events company ‘Pretty Lovely Bloggers’. We organise events in the areas that don’t usually get to experience them, helping to bring brands and bloggers together. Our first event was the West Midlands Blogger Meet earlier this month and there are many more to come this year.

Dorkface

Jemma is one of the kindest bloggers in the Twittersphere so it’s an added bonus that she has an amazing blog too. Expect lots of Kawaii, blogging tips and motivational posts for when you’re feeling down in the dumps. She’s a social media expert when it comes to blogging and never misses a chat, which is actually how I first discovered her blog!

As well as setting up her own Etsy store with custom made items, Jemma has also been nominated for two awards in the first ever #bloggersblogawards and she is so deserving of both.

Becky Bedbug

Becky is another nominee for the #bloggersblogawards (seriously wish I could vote for everyone, as they are all so amazing) and she is possibly one of my favourite bloggers I’ve met so far. I love the constant Twitter updates, her amazing posts and she is so blog savvy it’s unreal.

One of my favourite things about Becky’s blog is her ‘Can Fat People Wear….’ series. She challenges the so called ‘fashion rules’ and tries every trend, giving her feedback on how she felt. Another great thing about Becky Bedbug? Her photography is absolutely stunning.

Vix Meldrew

I had the pleasure of staying with Vicky when we visited Centerparcs in June and she is absolutely hilarious, which really shows in her blog posts which are so funny and down to earth. Side note: If you ever have the chance to meet Vicky, ask her to do her best American or Irish accent! Vicky has recently relaunched her blog and I absolutely love how honest her posts are.

Vicky also has a little side project alongside her blog – the Beauty Blogger Box. This is a new monthly subscription box made by bloggers, for bloggers! I’m already a loyal subscriber and its absolutely amazing, the range of products is always great and I have already found some new favourites. You can see my two current box reviews here.

Very Berry Cosmo

Kayleigh from Very Berry Cosmo is one of the first blogs I started following on Twitter and I have loved her from the start! Her posts are always 100% honest and you can really see her fun and bubbly personality in each and every one. Kayleigh also vlogs and I can honestly say I love watching her videos, although I get seriously FOMO when it comes to all the amazing events she attends.

One of my favourite posts Kayleigh posted was her ‘My Experience with the Implant’ post. I had a lot of questions before hand but this post was so informative that Kayleigh was able to answer a lot of my queries, as well as telling her own personal story. That to me shows how much of a talented writer she is.

Avenue de Sophie

Sophie has one of the most eye-pleasing blogs I have come across so far. He layout is spot on, her photography is as gorgeous as she is and she has an amazing writing style. I also love that Sophie has recently started doing outfit posts too, I’d love to have fashion sense like hers!

If you want to experience serious Instagram envy you should also check out Sophie’s account, her pictures are always amazing.

Dungarees and Donuts

Olivia Jade is such a sweet person who is always sharing the love on Twitter! I have been reading her blog since I first started and I think she’s such an inspiration. No matter what comes her way she always comes back stronger and she has an amazing blog to show for it. I love reading Olivia’s makeup and American Candy Reviews, they’re always so fun!

Olivia also has a second blog called Dungarees and Degrees, which is all about her life as a student. She gives advice and tips for surviving University, including a guide to Drink Games at University, probably something I could have done with while I was studying!

Fine and Dandy

Claire has one of the prettiest blogs I’ve seen, it’s so pink and girly! She regularly features some of my favourite things – cats, stationary and cakes. Every post is well written, has stunning photography and is so different to any other blog I have read, making it really unique.

Claire also has an amazing Instagram account, which is just as girly as her blog. Expect lots of pink, makeup, stationary, cats and kawaii pictures.

Love From Florence Grace

Florence is an absolute superwoman and an inspiration to bloggers everywhere! Alongside her blog Florence also works three jobs and her own blogging magazine, which is amazing by the way!

Florence likes to talk about makeup and beauty, but also challenges the things a lot of people are afraid to talk about. Her controversial posts are some of my favourites as I love how open and honest she can, unafraid of what people may think.

Everything You Don’t Need to Know About Sarah

Sarah is one of the first bloggers I met as she lives about 30 minutes away from me. We went to a blogger event and since then we have been to many more together! Sarah is such an inspiration when it comes to blogging and I love her fitness posts and healthy recipes, they make me wish I had a fit and healthy lifestyle!

As well as blogging, Sarah hold loads of different fundraising events for the Bone Cancer Research Trust in memory of her younger sister. Two of her most recent challenges include cycling 3000 miles and holding a charity ball in Nottingham, absolutely amazing!

Discovering Charlotte

I love Charlottes blog as she posts a lot of posts about her thrifty finds! I have never seen someone style their charity shop bargains so well but Charlotte nails it every time. I’ve met her a couple of times now and she is so down to earth – just like her blog posts!

Expect lots of honest and open posts about her Slimming World and weight loss journey (something I can really relate to) but also posts about events and new products she has tried. I love the variety in posts as there is always something new and interesting to read. My favourite post so far is here ‘You Know Your on Slimming World When….’.

Jinksy Beauty

Karen is another blogger that lives near to me and probably the blogger I see most often (as we are literally 30 seconds away from each other!). Karen is incredibly beauty obsessed and it really shows on her blog, Jinksy Beauty. I love her posts showing her recent hauls, lipstick collections and her reviews of different subscription boxes she subscribes to. It makes me want to subscribe to them all.

Another thing I love about Karen is her Instagram account and I am always telling her how jealous I am of it! Her pictures are always so beautifully laid out and she loves to use Instagram to engage with her followers, asking questions on each post.

She Might Be Loved

Georgina is one of my absolute favourite fashion bloggers, she loves dresses (just like me) and she always looks amazing in all of her photos. She’s beautiful, talented and absolutely hilarious. One of my favourite posts she did was her post about her experience at a benefit interview as it is so honest and interesting.

Georgina also has Youtube, which I really love. She spend a lot of time taking the mick out of blogger cliches which I absolutely love, I always find myself laughing out loud at her videos.

Loved By Laura

Laura is another blogger I had the chance to meet at Centreparcs, she is so lovely and always armed with a Selfie Stick. Laura’s blog is amazing too, with great pictures and amazing topics I never miss a post.

Laura also gets invited to some seriously cool events, which I am incredibly jealous of. From London Fashion Week and Tea Partys to Wimbledon themed parties – Laura has seen it all. You can view Laura’s event posts in the lifestyle section of her blog here.

Lola and Behold

Laura from Lola and Behold has an amazing beauty and lifestyle blog, definitely one of my favourites. She has a stunning layout, amazing content and some of the best pictures I have seen in the bloggersphere.

One of my favourite posts by Laura is her ‘You Suck as a Blogger When…’ post, as it points out all of the crazy blogger cliches that have developed over time. I actually don’t follow a lot of them, which either makes me a terrible blogger or an amazingly individual one. The post is light hearted and funny, exactly what I look for in a blog!

Robowecop

Rhianna from Robowecop is another blogger who hasn’t recently relaunched their blog and I can honestly say I am loving every second of it. Her posts are always on point and I love that it is such original content with amazing photography.

Rhianna is also on Youtube and I have to admit, I am a bit of a fan. I love her unboxing videos and especially her makeup tutorials as her eyeliner game is strong. If I can ever do my makeup like hers I think I will be incredibly pleased with myself!

Essays and Wine

Emma is a blogger I have been reading for a long time as I really love how honest and thought provoking her posts can be. Expect lots of beauty, fashion and health posts with beautiful photography.

My favourite posts by Emma are her Healthy Living posts, particularly her post about her weight loss journey as I think she put into words how a lot of us feel. The comments show how many people her post inspired and I think its absolutely lovely to see the support of the blogging community.

Annie Writes Beauty

Alice of Annie Writes Beauty is a blogger I have been following for a long time, probably since my first few weeks of blogging. As a fellow beauty addict I love looking through her posts to discover new brands and I know she has definitely encouraged me to make a few purchases of new products.

Alice also organises blogger events in Southampton with the sotonbloggers group. Although it’s a little far from me her events always look amazing so I hope that I get to attend one sooner rather than later.

Through The Mirror 

Caitlin is a blogger I have been following on Twitter for a while and I am so glad I found her blog. She has stunning photography, great content and you can really see how creative she is in each and every post.

I have also recently discovered that Caitlin has a Youtube channel, which is a little bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. One of my favourite videos of hers was her huge America Haul, as I love absolutely anything American so everything she bought was like a dream come true for me!

Inked Hibiscus

Colette shares my love on Pretty Little Liars and in the run up to the last season finale it was all we could talk about on Twitter. She’s so friendly, yet at the same time an incredibly sarcastic and funny person, especially when it comes to Twitter drama. It’s so hilarious.

Her lifestyle blog features lots of posts including her little boy, who is absolutely adorable. Love how fresh and interesting her content is for me as I don’t read a lot of parent blogs.

Little Fickle

Sammy’s blog is another favourite of mine as the quality and range of content is amazing. She covers anything from fashion and beauty to health and controversial lifestyle, meaning there is something that will appeal to everyone.

One of my favourite posts of Sammy’s is her post on World Suicide Prevention Day. It’s such a honest and brave post, as it’s not something a lot of people feel comfortable talking about.

The Lilac Scrapbook

Katie is a blogger I have been following for as long as I can remember and I am so glad I discovered her blog. Not only does Katie have amazing content, beautiful pictures and the best fashion sense ever, but she also has a Youtube channel with her girlfriend – Sammy from Little Fickle. I love watching their videos and yes, they are absolutely adorable together.

Katy and Sam also host events in the North West, which I am definitely aiming to go to in the future as I am so close and their last one looking absolutely amazing.

Tea Party Beauty

Hayley from Tea Party Beauty is amazing! I absolutely love her blog and have been reading it since before I started blogging. Expect lots of beauty, lifestyle, travel and Gin from Hayleys blog and Twitter, as she is a little bit of a Social Media expert in the blogging world.

Hayley is also the blogger behind the blogger blog awards happening next month. With the absence of the Cosmo Blog Awards Hayley took it upon herself to set up her own and she has done brilliantly – I am a little jealous I can’t attend!

Mojichlo

Chlo is a blogger I discovered on Twitter in my first few months of blogging and I am so glad that I did. I love her posts as they are always so fun and creative, which is definitely representative of her personality! I met her at the Bloggers Festival earlier this year and she was so lovely. You can read her post about the event here.

Chlo also co-owns an amazing stationary company called That Lame Company (which is so not lame at all). They sell the cutest little cards, post cards, stickers and notebooks. I can’t wait till pay day so I can buy EVERYTHING.

The Prosecco Diaries 

A couple of months ago I went to the Big Blogger Conference in London and Sarah from The Prosecco Diaries was there giving a talk on monetising your blog. I hadn’t heard of her blog before the event but since then I have been obsessed.

Sarah posts a lot about food and drink in London, travel, health, beauty and the blogging events she attends. There’s such a mix of posts, it’s amazing. Sarah also runs the Bloggeration Twitter account where she retweets and shares other bloggers posts.

Ms Mistry Blogs

I internet-met Ms Mistry a couple of ago when I asked if anyone wanted to guest post for me and she volunteered. She’s a great writer and I love her lifestyle posts so much that I said yes! I love her blog too, she has really original content ideas and some of the best advice when it comes to relaxation, something we all need to do a little more of.

Ms Mistry also rund the Blogger Box Share, a chance for bloggers to be paired together to get to know each other and send each other a box full of goodies they would like. For more information you can click here.

Puzzle Piece Life

I actually discovered Jay after one of the Blog retweet Twitter accounts retweeted a picture of a kitten that looked so much like my Dexter I had to do a double take. I clicked the link and there was an article about Jay’s kitten… Dexter! What are the odd’s?! They’re like kitten twins!

Not only do I love following Jay for all of the adorable cat pictures, I absolutely love her blog too. She posts a lot about beauty and her general life ramblings, which at times can be the best sorts of posts to read. I love having a nose at what other people are up to!

Filthy Paws and Silky Drawers

I first discovered Sophie through Twitter when a lot of people were retweeting some of her Tweets surrounding Twitter drama which were incredibly funny and I 100% agreed with them. She’s definitely opinionated but that’s why I love her, she’s so real and honest – which shows in her blog posts.

Expect lots of beauty and fashion with the odd lifestyle post from Sophie, all with amazing photography and lot of personality. One of my favourite posts has to be ‘5 Things We Need to Educate Young People on’ as I agree with every single point made.

Diary of a Fashion Drop Out

I was lucky enough to share a lodge with Jess and Centreparcs as she is one of the kindest, funniest and craziest people I have ever met. Despite never meeting before we got on amazingly for the entire weekend. Jess posts mainly about fashion, however, there are some beauty posts too!

Jess has also ventured into the world of Youtube recently and for a newbie, she is amazingly confident! You can check out her channel here.

Frannymac

Frannymac is another blogging with absolutely stunning photography, it’s always so on point. She posts mainly about beauty and lifestyle with a couple of posts on events too. I had the pleasure of meeting Fran at the Big Blogger Conference this year and she was so sweet, not to mention her amazing fashion sense.

Fran has a series called ‘What Happened Last Month’ and I absolutely love it. It’s a view of her month given in pictures and it’s so nice to be nosey and see what she got up to! I love looking at other peoples round up posts, especially if they have lots of pictures.

Beauty by Hari Pixi

Hari is actually a friend of mine as we went to the same secondary school. Hari was always posting mini reviews of makeup on Instagram so after a couple of months of me trying she finally took the high step of starting her own blog – I am so proud of her!

Although she has only been blogging a couple of months she’s a natural and her posts are amazing. She’s beauty obsessed which is obvious when looking at her blog and I am insanely jealous of her amazing makeup skills and recreations of looks.

The Curvaceous Vegan

Amie is such a lovely blogger and always replying to comments and tweets, I love it! I first discovered Amie’s blog through a Twitter chat but I am so glad that I did, it’s amazing. I love her posts about her health as they are so open and honest, something not a lot of people can do.

I also love that she was inspired by one of my posts to write one of her own, as that is something that has never happened to me before. She was so sweet in approaching when she wanted to write it and it turned out amazingly.

Making It Up Blog

Jess from Making It Up devotes her whole blog to beauty and it is amazing. Her professional layout and stunning photography are what makes the blog, it is honestly so pretty.

My favourite posts are her monthly favourites and hauls as I am 100% sure they have influenced a lot of my recent purchases.

Pull Yourself Together

I met Hannah when she attended my first ever event and she is one of the sweetest girls I know and her blog is absolutely lovely. Her posts are a mix of beauty and fashion and talking about her mental health. I love how open and honest her posts can be on topics that are not often discussed in the media.

At the end of each post-Hannah does something she calls ‘project smile’. She gives one or two reasons why she has smiled that day, which I think is an amazing little touch to such a lovely blog.

Jasmine Harding Makeup

Another blog that is completely devoted to makeup, Jasmine’s blog is amazing. Her posts are always new and fresh content, her pictures look amazing and she really knows what she is talking about when it comes to makeup and beauty.

Jasmine also has a stunningly beautiful Instagram account that has lots of pictures of makeup and beauty products. They are always so nicely laid out and the constant theme throughout is stunning.

Amanda Bootes

Amanda is a lifestyle blogger and one of the first I followed on Twitter and I absolutely love her blog as it focuses on food, especially recipes and reviews. I had the pleasure of meeting Amanda at the Bloggers Festival 2015 and she is one of the sweetest people ever, and so brave for hobbling around all day on crutches!

Amanda also writes for Metro, which I think is amazing! Expect lots of foodie posts, posts on being a 90’s kid and cats. So many cats!

Cow Heart Girl

Beth’s blog is one I have discovered recently, but it has already made it into my top 50! She’s a beauty and lifestyle bloggers with loads of great posts.

Beth posts a ‘Friday Feature’ every week, with her recommendations on events and products. I love this idea as its regular and something I always look forward to reading on a Friday!

Charmed Charlee

I have only discovered Charlee’s blog recently, but I have no idea how she managed to stay off my radar for so long… her blog is amazing! I love her beauty posts and her photo’s give me so much inspiration to improve mine, I love it.

My of my favourite posts from Charlee is her ‘Weekend Trip to Paris’ as she announces that her boyfriend proposed to her in front of the Disney castle, how cute is that?

A South Wales Blog

Fion is another blogger I have been following for a while and she’s absolutely amazing. She mainly blogs about health and beauty, lifestyle and her time spent working at a camp in America I love reading all about her adventures and her photos are so amazing.

Fion has also organised an event in Wales called Party at the Angel and I am sure it won’t be her last!

Jasmin Charlotte 

Jasmin is another speaker I saw at the Big Blogger Conference earlier this year as she was there speaking about SEO and SMO. I picked up some great tips from her (some of which may or may not have influenced parts of this post) and it made me want to read her blog.

I love that Jasmin blogs about the techy side of blogging and I really find her posts so helpful when it comes to improving my blog, I particularly like her posts about branding your blog, the best plugins for SEO and her blogging tools.

Loving Life in Wellies

Chelsea is another blogger from the same area as me and she has actually spoke at the two events I have run, the Shropshire Blogger Meet and the West Midlands Blogger Meet. She is knowledge on all things SEO and brands and has an amazing outdoor living blog to show for it.

Alongside Loving Life in Wellies, Chelsea also runs a blog called Mz Tech Savvy, which helps to promote women in tech. I love this and believe it is something that should be explored more, I for one would love to learn more about tech and this blog definitely helps.

Ally in Blunderland

Ally is another blog I discovered quite early on (through her love of Primark!) and she has remained a constant favourite. I LOVE Ally’s outfit posts and she always manages to look absolutely stunning. Ally has recently started her paramedic training and I love that she is still able to keep up with blogging alongside it.

One of my favourite posts is the one about the charity Coppafeel and their Brajack campaign. I have worked with the particular charity on events and I know how important it is to spread the message that Coppafeel wants to promote – that every woman should carry out regular self-check ups.

Daisydaisyxxo

Daisy is a blogger I discovered through Twitter and I am so glad that I did, I love her posts! With a mixture of beauty, fashion and lifestyle posts Daisy’s blog has a little something for everyone! I absolutely love the fact she has a product directory too, it makes browsing her blog so much easier.

Alongside blogging, Daisy has also started running events in the Suffolk area, with her first one next month. I am gutted I can’t make it, however, I know it won’t be her last as everything already looks amazing. If you want more info on Daisy’s event then you can follow her on Twitter here.

Hannah Delacour

I first discovered Hannah when everyone was getting caught up in some Twitter drama and she decided the best thing to do would be to post cute animal pictures. Since then, my Twitter feed has never been short of cute cats thanks to Hannah’s retweets.

Hannah is a lifestyle blogger that covers a range of different topics from beauty to blogging tips. I love one of her most recent posts about blog post ideas for when you are fighting writer’s block, as this is something I experience regularly!

Found Some Paper

Uli’s blog is one I discovered recently but I wish I had discovered sooner. It looks so professional (I love her logo and layout) and I always find myself clicking to read more on her posts! I love how she follows her blog theme in each blog posts title, starting them with ‘Found some’ or ‘Found a’… it’s so cute.

Little Miss Katy

Katy is one of the sweetest bloggers ever and her blog is so cute. I love how she categorises it into food, fashion and fun – three of my favourite things! She has a stunningly beautiful, just like her photography.

Katy Posts a ‘Happy Monday’ post every week because despite it being an unpopular opinion, she loves Mondays! The posts are always little bit of positivity on an otherwise miserable day and for that I absolutely love reading these posts!

So there you have it! My list of 50 bloggers you should be following! I could have kept going too…. If there is anyone else you think should be added to the list, please do link to them below!

  • I'M KIRSTY LEANNE

    My mission is simple. I want to help change the way travel looks, showing both brands and society that plus size people really do travel too. In a community where plus size travellers are made to feel unwelcome, I want to inspire and advise people like me on how they can make the most out of their own incredible travel experiences.Join me as I share my own personal experiences, my best tips and tricks and all of the challenges I face along the way. It won’t always be an easy ride, but it sure as hell will be a fun one.

    Together, we can change the way that travel looks today

    WHAT TO EXPECT

    • AD | Gifted 💫 Happy Saturday! I’m going to be spending my weekend doing some housework, making my garden look pretty and trying to find ways to convince my boyfriend to take some new outfit shots for me. If there is one thing he hates, it’s being behind the camera even though he’s actually really good at it. For those of you that manage this on a regular basis, please please share your tips (I already offered a meal out, so that’s out of the question) 😂🤞🏻

    • AD | Discounted 💫 I am FINALLY getting around to writing some of my Trek America content and I’m getting super emotional reliving all of the amazing things that we did! As much as I love my home comforts, my dream would be to spend a couple of months getting Greyhound buses between as many States as I possibly can! With 9 already ticked off my list, I still have some exploring to do.... 🗺🇺🇸❤️

    • AD | Gifted 💫 It’s been a long time since I posted a carousel post on Instagram but I felt like the Kennedy Space Center definitely deserved it. I mean, just look at all of those incredible rockets 🚀
•
•
Do you ever have those places where you’ve wanted to visit for as long as you can remember and then they exceed your expectations, even though you didn’t think it was possible? That was the KSC for me. It’s been just over a month since I visited and I still can’t stop thinking about how incredible the different exhibitions were. From learning about incredible American astronauts and driving around launch pads to seeing immersive replicas of both failed and successful launches, it really was an experience I’ll remember. I 100% left feeling like I could achieve anything ✨🛰

❤️ My tickets to The Kennedy Space Center were gifted to me by @kennedyspacecenter #ksc #kennedyspacecenter #thekennedyspacecenter #kennedyspacecenter🚀 #kennedyspacecentervisitorcomplex
    • AD | Gifted 💫 For years I have been looking lustfully at all of the cute play suits in stores thinking that I’d never be able to wear one. Not only would they not suit me but oh my gosh, can you imagine the chub rub?! I’d written them off and decided that I’d stick to jumpsuits instead 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
.
I don’t know why, but when I found out I was going to Garorock Festival I decided that if I was going to wear a playsuit, now would be the perfect opportunity. It was going to be 41 degrees and if anything, I could pass it off as festival fashion if it didn’t look right. I ordered two, one from @missguided and one from Boohoo 🙌🏻
.
.
As you can see it DOES suit me (I think) and the chub rub? NON-EXISTENT. I’m definitely a playsuit convert and now wondering what other clothes I have written off without even giving them a chance! Co-ords? Dungarees? Bodycon Dresses? What should I try next?! 😏👇🏻

    • AD | Gifted 🌈 Do you ever find a dress that as soon as you put it on, it’s all you want to wear for the rest of the summer?! 🙊
•
•
This candy coloured sundress from @yoursclothinguk is definitely THE dress of the summer for me, especially as it’s the coolest linen material ever. It’s been so so comfortable on days where it’s hit 30 degrees (or 41, like it did in France) ☀️☀️🙌🏻🙌🏻
•
•
P.s. please ignore the sun burn, apparently factor 50 every half an hour was STILL not enough for my ginger skin 😭🤦🏼‍♀️ #yoursclothing #yoursclothinguk #psbloggers #plussizebloggers #plussizeblog #plussizeootd #stylehasnosize #plussizefashion
    • AD | Gifted 💫 I’m definitely still recovering from the weekend but it was so so worth it as I go to go to my first ever festival. The four-day Garorock festival in Marmande consisted of lots of beer and Aperol, an endless supply of glitter, incredible music and non-stop dancing. ☀️🎶
•
•
Highlights include reliving my childhood by seeing @sum41, dancing to @djsnake on day 3, discovering the amazing @christineandthequeens, listening to @twodoorcinemaclub and realising I know way more songs than I thought and the INCREDIBLE headline that was @macklemore. I’ve still got no voice because I sang and screamed so much 😂🙊
•
•
As far as festivals go, Garorock was a great first choice. It was INCREDIBLY clean (look at the lack of rubbish in my photo) and it was all pretty contained and easy to get to. Not only that, but the crowd were amazing. I’m a little worried I may have been spoilt and I’ll have a bit of a shock at my next festival, but there’s only one way to find out, right? 😂🙌🏻

    • I’ve had a little bit of an Instagram break the last five days as I’ve been living my best life in France at my FIRST EVER festival! 🙌🏻🎉
•
•
Although I would have loved to get the full festival experience by camping, the heat was hitting the 40’s most days. Luckily we had our very own Gite to stay in, fully equipped with a pool and all the wine I could drink. Clearly, I took full advantage of that🥂🍾
•
•
The festival wasn’t my only first this weekend, as this is also the first time I’ve ever worn a bikini! Despite the fact I come across as confident on Instagram, I still get self-conscious when I’m putting myself out there. I was DEFINITELY not feeling it at first, but after a bit of encouragement from @danniellelily and @absolutelylucy I felt so much better. I feel as though I’d built wearing a bikini up to be this massively scary thing for me when really, it’s not *so* bad. Here’s to way more bikinis in my life 🙌🏻

    • AD | Gifted ❤️ Did you know when it comes to the collaborations that I do, I pitch 90% of the work I have? Whether it’s pitching a product to feature, a press trip to go on or a paid post for my blog - I’m a huge fan of going out and finding my own opportunities. Whilst I know a lot of people are scared of the thought of pitching, it’s one of the main reasons l was able to leave my job and go full-time. It’s also taken me to places like Croatia, Belgium, Lanzarote and France. I’ve worked with INCREDIBLE brands, and I want everyone else to be able to do the same too 🙌🏻

If you saw my stories a couple of weeks ago, you will have seen that I launched the #bepitchperfect eBook - the ultimate guide to pitching products, payments and press trip. The guide goes into detail about all of the preparation you need to do before a pitch, ways to overcome your fears, a five-step strategy that works for me almost every time and how to stay on top of all the people you’re pitching. I also tell you how to personalise each pitch depending on what you’re pitching. It really is that detailed! 🙊💫

At just £10, it’s honestly an absolute bargain for those looking to take their blog to the next level. It’s been launched less than a month so far and I’ve already had people message to tell me some of the amazing collaborations they’ve secured thanks to my guide! 🎉

I’m so sorry that this post may have come across a little salesy, but as you can tell I’m incredibly passionate about pitching and how it can help your blog grow. If you’re interested in purchasing the eBook, there’s a link to buy in my profile bio. If you think you know someone who may be interested, please feel free to tag them below! 🥰🥰

    • AD | Discounted 💫 As soon as I booked my Trek America I started planning all of the places I wanted to visit in each location, including the #whatliftsyou mural in the Gulch, Nashville. Nashville has TONNES of murals dotted around the city, but this particular one designed by @kelseymontagueart is very very popular. In short, Kelsey has designed all of the #whatliftsyou murals to encourage people to talk about what inspires them. Of course, I couldn’t miss out on an opportunity to do the same...

✨ Traveling to new places and experiencing incredible new adventures inspires me to create new content, as well as to face my fears.
✨ My friends and family inspire me on a daily basis - whether it’s to do the best I can or to appreciate what I have. Seeing them do incredible things makes me want to do incredible things too.
✨ My boyfriend inspires me to achieve everything I’ve ever wanted to, as he’s always cheering me on and telling me I can do anything if I work hard enough.
✨ YOU! Each and everyone one of you inspire me to do the best I can when it comes to Plus Size Travel Too and travel marketing.

What inspires you? 👇🏻

    • Hi! It’s me! We’ve had quite a few new followers over here so I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me, the creator of the @plussizetraveltoo movement! 🙊🙌🏻
•
My name is Kirsty Leanne (@kirstyleanneuk) and I’m a plus size travel blogger from the UK! I have loved travelling for as long as I can remember and have been blogging about travel for just over two years (and specifically plus size travel for officially 6 months). I like cats, peanut butter and programmes about serial killers. 
As I started to become more confident with posting photos of myself of my social media channels, it became more and more obvious that I didn’t have a place in the travel industry. Nobody wanted to feature a fat girl on their platforms or in their press trips. As time went on and it started to get to me more and more, the idea for Plus Size Travel Too started. Not only is this a community for plus size travellers to get advice from people just like them, but it’s a way to show brands that plus size people do actually travel too. In the long run, I want PSTT to help brands see that they should be showing plus size travellers in their marketing materials, as well as advising them on how they can make adjustments that can make travel a lot more comfortable for plus size people. 
I want to inspire plus size travellers, just like me, to travel and have the best adventures they can. Often people let the fact they’re plus size they can’t travel and hopefully, Plus Size Travel Too will help show people that that’s just not true. 
I can’t do it alone, so I am thankful for each and every one of you helping me along the way ❤️💫
