Blogger Love Tag

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 presetI’m not one who follows tags or does them regularly but I came across this on MakeupSavvy’s site and thought it was a really interesting read and wanted to pass it along to other bloggers to do!

What was the first blog you ever came across?

I’d have to say it was Temptalia because I was looking for swatches to a M.A.C collection that released (have no clue at this point) and thought it was pretty awesome that people did sites like hers. She is the encyclopedia of makeup!

Favorite blog reads

I will have to start with VDM (my all time fav), Gh0stparties, I Covet Thee, and Jessica Beautician,  I could probably be here for ages naming them all so here’s a list.

Best blogging friend

I live in an area where not a lot of people are interested in the things I am but I speak to Joyce from Bronzer Bunny all the time! We share what ever new releases are out or even deals we come across. We go back and forth on Twitter, Instagram and our Blogs. I wubs her! She’s such a doll and just a really sweet gal.

Name a blog that enables your purchases

Sabrina from Beauty Look Book! Where do I even begin?! From her stationary down to her clean photography this girl seriously has amazing taste. She is the culprit for all my Diptyque purchases (I’m not complaining) and I read her blog everyday. I love how she compares all types of brands with new releases and is very detailed with her descriptions. She never fails me!

5 blogs everyone should be reading

VDM and Liana-Beauty for amazing beauty content, Karla’s Closet and Fashion Toast are my favorite fashion bloggers (we have very similar taste), and I love Stephanie Sterjovski’s site feat. all things girly.

Your favorite way to read blogs

Bloglovin all the way! It’s like a virtual newspaper of all your posts for the day in one page. I sit down to have my breakfast in the AM with a big cup of tea and scroll away on my iPad. I’ll check it once more during the day as well if I have some free time or at work in between patients, totally guilty of that one.

Bloggers that inspire you

I’d have to say my #1 inspiration right now would be Estee from Essie Button. The fact that she films her daily life along with her adorable family is a total inspiration for me. I feel like I almost get to see different parts of the world because of their videos and like her I’m a total Grandma. I love eating, going to markets, stationary, glass, cacti, and the list goes on vs. what a typical 25-year-old does now a days (getting krunk . . . do they still call it that?). I adore and respect her so much that I would hope to be as good as her! Not to mention how damn funny she is, I could never watch her videos in public because I’m constantly laughing or talking back to the screen. Anna from VDM is also a big one for me, she’s so darn chic without even trying! Effortless is what comes to mind when she reviews products because its second nature to her.

Favorite blog design/look

Aesthetic wise, I enjoy a very minimalistic blog. I love a good white back ground or great photography. Some designs are nice as well just nothing crazy that will be too busy for my eye balls. The Haute Pursuit is a perfect example! One day I’ll get mine to look the way I want it to but for now I’m very pleased with my layout.

What is your favorite thing about blogging

The fact that I get a response from people all around the world! It’s nice to know that there are people out their who share the same passion as you and totally understand where you’re coming from. I love it when I get emails, comments commending me on what a good job I’ve been doing, or being told that I made someone happy. Those are the rewards I take home with me.

Name a blogger you would most like to see write a book in the future!

Maybe Estee because she’s so darn entertaining, or I have to agree with Fee, Lisa Eldridge would be a good one!

    Totally agree with this whole list! Estee is top of my list these days too. She’s just so funny and it feels like you’re chattin’ with your girlfriend.
