It's going to be tough, but as Kanye once said, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" (Wtf, did I actually just quote a Kanye West song in a blog post? #CompleteAndUtterTitSays) but here goes...
Genius Gluten Free Blueberry muffins - They're soft, they're moist (hands up who else hates that word *watches all hands raise*) they're incredibly tasty, and they don't fall apart/taste like sawdust like 99% of other GF cake brands. Score!
Twinings Salted Caramel Green tea - Anything salted caramel flavoured is going to go down well in my books, but add in a form of tea and I am right there!
Those Duo boots - I posted about these boots just a few days ago. I've now had them for a couple of weeks and I haven't worn anything since. Head over to my review to see/read just how stunning they are up close.
Zoe London - I have read Zoe's blog - and watched her Youtube channel - for a very long time. From the London Lipgloss days to full-time blogger Zoe London, Zoe's blog has remained a firm favourite of mine throughout. With amazing, amazing tips and tricks type posts, beautiful beauty and fashion posts, and an insight into London's hot spots, the latest gigs etc.... Zoe's blog - and her easy-going, friendly personality - is one that will forever remain a go-to, "I need inspiration, please give me all the inspiration" blog. Bookmarked on my computer, saved in my heart. (Too much? Too much...)
Corrie, The Dizzy Brunette - Again, Dizzy Brunette is a blog I have read - and followed closely - for years. However, since Corrie recently went full-time, her blog content and Youtube video's really are next level stunning. (Not that they wasn't amazing before, because they were!) Not only are they funny, informative and engaging, but she also comes across as one of those down to earth, girl next door kinda girls (which is right up street, so much so that it's incorporated in my bloody blog name #loser) that you could easily sit and have a cuppa and a good chat with. My favourite kind of bloggers. Oh, and can we just talk about that hair for a second?! [All the heart-eye'd emoji's here]
Zoe Newlove - Zoe's blog is a new addition to my blogroll and I'm only disappointed by the fact that I didn't discover her sooner. With perfect, pinterest-worthy photography, a clean, reader-friendly layout and just really amazing content, Zoe Newlove has become my perfect
Polly, Polly's pocket book - I'm actually a little lost for words when trying to express my thoughts on Polly's blog. I came across Polly via Twitter, clicked through to her blog and spent the best part of the next 2 hours reading through her posts, and in particular... her cancer story. I pray to god she doesn't mind me mentioning her - or her story - here but I just feel compelled to mention them, as it made such an impact on me. There's so much I want to say - but won't, nobody want's to get to the end of this post and realise it's 2017 - but what I will do is urge you to check out her blog for yourself. In short, she is one of the most inspiring, brave (although I hasten to add that as she's also ridiculously modest and will probably argue that she wasn't brave, and just did what the doctors said) ladies I have ever discovered. And in a community where the biggest thing to "go down" of late has been whether a YouTuber actually wrote their own book or not, reading Polly's blog has put such ridiculously silly things such as that into perspective.
And breathe. That, ladies, is a wrap for this post. January has been a great month for me so far - a combination of blogs I've discovered, people I've met, and opportunities that have arisen through my hard work on this blog (without sounding like an up-my-own-arse twat) has left me feeling more positive and motivated than I have in a very long time.
What I would love to know though, is what has been your favourite moments, products, bloggers/vloggers or thoughts throughout January? Any products I need to try, Blogs I need to know about? Your thoughts make my day so please leave them in the comments below :)
As always, thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog. I hope you enjoyed this post!
P.S Did I mention that a few days ago I spontaneously booked a 4 day trip to New York? I never? Well, I'm shocked... because my poor family members haven't heard of anything but that since I booked it. Any restaurant, tourist attractions, sights etc. that I need to check out... please leave those below too :)
