Share the Love Sunday

Firstly I know I've been MIA for a week or so and I apologise. I started a new job last week and it's been really hectic, I had planned to schedule some posts to go up last week but I spilled a drink all over my laptop and in my infinite wisdom, decided that as it was still working I'd carry on using it. BIG mistake, I should have switched it straight off and it may have survived. I didn't so my laptop and all of the pictures I'd taken for posts are sadly no more. Every cloud has a silver lining though and I decided to put my savings towards a MacBook - I'm still trying to get my head around how to use it properly but I'm trying! 

Anyway, I'd decided to put this post up a few days ago and it just so happens it was also the subject of tonights #bbloggers twitter chat: Share the Love. Here are five of my favourite blogs. 

Screenshot on a Mac tab open, I'm just unbelievably cool.

Zoe is a makeup artist and graphic designer (amongst other things, check out her About Me for the full list!) and I love her blog. Her images are always clear and her posts are well written and helpful. She's currently doing a great skincare series which is full of great skincare and diet advice. As a fellow makeup artist I trust Zoe's opinion and she's absolutely lovely on Twitter too!

Sandy writes a lovely blog which includes fantastic reviews and the most amazing NOTD posts - she gives me serious nail envy! Again, her pictures are always lovely and her posts keep me interested from start to finish. She also has a really handy product directory so it's really easy to find certain posts, I always find myself searching before I buy to see if Sandy has a review!

Dee is just the nicest girl. I love her hauls (though she's on a spending ban at the moment!) and reviews. She's another fellow makeup artist and I really trust her opinion and I love reading her blog. 

Julie's blog was one of the first I started reading after I found her videos on YouTube. She's got such personality that translates really well into her blog and her images are always stunning. I really like her reviews and hauls as well as her FOTD/N posts.

I started reading Lauren's blog after meeting her when she was doing her makeup artist training and she's such a lovely girl. Her blog mixes beauty and lifestyle and there are regular appearances from her family and her adorable dogs. Her pictures are brilliant and her posts are really to the point which I like. 

I think I'll make this a regular series as I love finding new blogs and I'm sure you all do too!
