When we launched #InTheSpotlight for issue 9, we were overwhelmed with the sheer amount of amazing entries we had.
Over 100 of you sent us your lovely blog links, and over the Easter weekend we put aside some time to read through each and every one.
Picking a top 10 wasn’t easy – you guys are all just too good!
In the end, we decided to go for the blogs we found ourselves naturally returning to – the ones that made us hungry for more content.
Well done to everyone who entered themselves; sometimes it feels strange nominating your own blog for something but we’re really glad you did!
Below are our 10 favourite blogs – three of which will be featured in issue 9 of the magazine.
Have a read of them, comment below with your favourites of the 10 and don’t forget to tweet us your thoughts, too!
Rebecca’s blog is a mix of everything, from style diaries to travel bucket lists, and we loved making our way through each of the categories.
Her photos are big, bright and beautiful and we love her conversational writing tone.
There’s, quite literally, something for everyone and we could spend hours browsing her blog.
- The Cardiff Cwtch
If there’s one thing that sucks us into a travel blog, it’s lots of pretty photos and Nia’s blog has plenty of them!
Her posts transport us to wherever she is (or has been) and the short, sweet bursts of text in between photos give us a great insight into each of her trips.
We now have a list of places we simply MUST visit in Cardiff – maybe we should start packing our bags?
- Beautyosaurus Lex
First off, what a great blog name. Secondly, we are now lost in Alex’s stunning Instagram feed.
While Alex’s blog is predominantly a beauty one, we love that she branches out into lifestyle every once in awhile.
Much like her Instagram feed, her blog photos are very attractive and have us wanting everything that she has (the Spring lipstick arsenal is especially good!)
- MOON + FOREST
If you want some serious holiday envy, we suggest you head straight over to MOON + FOREST.
From Puno to Newcastle, Sarah will have you wanting to go wherever she’s been and her brilliant photos really help to transport you there.
Her holiday stories are fascinating and definitely not to be missed.
- Not Your Nine To Five
There’s something exciting and mysterious about an anonymous blog, so we were naturally drawn to Not Your Nine To Five.
What initially drew us into this blog was the witty content- our favourites being ‘an open letter to booze’ and ‘why I once spent £55 on a thong’.
It’s not often that a blogger’s sense of humour shines through in their writing and it’s exactly what keeps us coming back to Not Your Nine The Five for more.
- Beauty At Brunch
We love a good blog design, and Beauty At Brunch’s has us clicking on every post!
Written by three lovely ladies, Rae, Lily and Dani, it’s the perfect blend of beauty reviews, event exclusives and fitness posts.
It’s not often that a blog is co-written and we love the variation in writing style and blog content it brings.
- Nerd About Town
Sometimes all it takes for a blog to stand out is a fierce sense of style and that’s something Steph has mastered.
We love how proud she is of her body shape and her fashion posts are a source of endless inspiration.
If you like your fashion blogs bold and brave with a splash of beauty and lifestyle then Steph is the girl for you.
- The Awkward Blog
A great blog is one that you want to spend a whole afternoon browsing and we found ourselves doing exactly that on Angela’s.
We love the unique design of her blog and her photo edits are great, adding individuality to each and every post.
Thanks to Angela we now have a major craving for seared tuna – which probably isn’t a bad thing…
- Tiny Twisst
Laura’s photos are show-stopping and we just can’t get enough of them!
We can’t believe we’ve only just discovered her blog and we’re now doing some serious catching up on all of her blog posts.
If you want some incredible photos to browse through over your morning cuppa, Tiny Twisst is perfect for you.
- Life Of Pingkan
We were initially drawn to Pingkan’s blog by her effortless casual style.
There’s something just so addictive about browsing through each of her outfit posts and she’s convinced us that we definitely do need that pair of Adidas Superstars.
If you’re also a casual style addict, like us, take a look at her blog and you won’t be disappointed.
As we mentioned at the beginning of this post, we will be picking three of these lovely blogs to feature in the magazine so don’t be shy in letting us know which are your favourites!
If you want to nominate your own blog for In The Spotlight we’ll be opening nominations again in June so keep an eye on our Twitter page!
