Better not be afraid of heights!
Hakone – 2017
Last post of my ‘Favourite blogs’ series, after interior and beauty, let me introduce you to my favourite travel bloggers! I refer to their sites when I am looking for travel inspiration, planning my itinerary or simply looking for a place to have dinner.
What I like the most about Creative Travel Guide is how Katie answers questions we all may have asked ourselves while travelling but we couldn’t find the answers to. How to save money when sending parcel while travelling? How to travel the world on a vegan diet? Etc.
A very useful blog to refer to when abroad and not sure how to/what to/when to!
Not sure Rosie would consider herself a travel blogger, I think ‘lifestyle’ is probably the best way to describe her platform. However she is my go-to source when I am looking for a place to have dinner or a drink abroad! She has travelled so much and her recommendations rarely disappoint.
Rosie’s blog is also a fantastic source of outing ideas if, like me, you live in London, and her pictures are just gorgeous!
What I love the most about Kiersten’s blog is her fun personality and her blogging story. In particular when she says “I realised that true happiness, for me, would not be found in a cubicle… so I quit my job”. She took a risk and it paid off which I truly admire.
The Blonde Abroad is an inspirational source of content if you love to travel, you are a woman and wants to change your lifestyle to something less conventional. In Kiersten’s own words “May you never settle for a life that’s anything short of extraordinary!”
This blog is a fantastic source of information to plan your next trip! Be warned though, you are at risk of major travel-envy when reading this blog as they are also multiple interviews of travel bloggers and digital nomads!
An endless source of content to plan your next vacation or your journey to become a full-time traveller!
I hope that all the blogs I have shared will inspire you to have an eventful, adventurous and beautiful 2018!
The second post of my ‘Favourite blogs’ series is dedicated to all things beauty (here is my first post on interior blogs). As you may know, in addition to travelling the world and painting walls, I have a little French pharmacy in my bathroom. I am quite simple and scientific when it comes to beauty – I like to have a few products that work very well. Quality over quantity!
This means that I am very thorough when looking for a new cleanser or retinol and the blogs below are exactly that – very rigorous and detailed!
I am pretty sure I was one of the first readers of Into The Gloss, when I first discovered it on a lunch break in my cubicle at work, back in 2011, it only had two pages of content. Fast forward to today and Into The Gloss is not only one of most respected blogs in the industry, it has also now launched a beauty brand!
Founded by Emily Weiss (The Hills anyone?), Into The Gloss opens the bathroom’s doors of some of the most beautiful people on the planet.
Caroline is the queen of all things beauty in the UK. A qualified aesthetician by background, she has encyclopedic level of knowledge when it comes to skincare. Not sure what retinol to get? Check her blog! What are acids anyway? Check her blog!
She has also a Youtube channel which I am subscribed too! I love her personality, direct and honest – no beating around the bush there!
Anna is probably one of the loveliest persons on the internet! I want to be her friend and I adore her simple yet very stylish universe. She is a girl after my own heart, with a preference for straightforward beauty routines.
Also like me she has greasy eyelids which made me feel so much better as I thought I was the only one with this problem! Anna if you read this I think we should start a #gressyeyelidstribe!
First of all Renee is absolutely gorgeous, if I can look like her in a few years by following her advice I will be one happy lady! I also love her very scientific approach to skincare.
Ingredients, combinations of products, she has also incredible knowledge of Asian skincare routines which are world famous for their efficiency. I watched most of her videos before going to Japan and I came back with a bag full of products!
I am just hoping that with all that reading I will still look thirty in twenty years!
