In a world full of hate and anger, it's nice to take a step back sometimes and share the love. I am sick of seeing negativity (but we are all negative at times so it's okay) so today I wanted to spread some love. I often think we don't share the love enough. I love birthdays, I love surprising people, I like to make people happy but it's not always easy to do that. Whilst there's a lot of hate in the world, there's also a lot of love too and inspired by my good friend Victoria's 10 Reasons Why The Blogging Community Is The Best post, I wanted to spread a little bit of love and talk to you about some of my favourite bloggers who I am fortunate have all turned into what I would call good friends. Whether this post inspires you to tell someone they look good today or inspires you to find a new blog, whatever it does, I hope it makes you want to spread a little bit of niceness because hey, it doesn't hurt to just be nice does it?!
Victoria In The Frow - I have known this beautiful girl since I started blogging, she came to my North Meet Up Event (gosh that was a long time ago) and we've been friends ever since. Countless events we've had fun at together, countless photo shoots together, fashion week but not just blogging things, general life chats too - like the time we had the best mozzarella together when I was trying to do zero carbs haha and she didn't try push me to have pizza, she happily munched a salad with me. Victoria is my go to girl for male advice too, I am forever texting her ranting away and she just knows what to say to make me laugh my head off and realise that actually, I over think everything. I am so lucky to have such a supportive, kind friend in my life like Victoria. We recently visited Ibiza together and had so much fun. She also shares my love for all things champagne and Burberry. Keep an eye out because Victoria is about to take the world by storm! You can read her blog here.
Kayleigh Couture Girl - Ah Kayleigh, my partner in crime, my twinnie! I absolutely adore this blondie - we laugh until it hurts and we also rant until it hurts, our WhatsApp messages to each other are just hilarious. She is my go to girl for anything really, she's constantly getting essays from me about things and always helps me. I do not know what I would do without her. You know when you meet someone and you just have so much fun but you completely get each other too? Well that's what happened with us two. You can read about our recent trip to Mallorca here. I am so glad she came into my life and her blog has always been a huge favourite of mine. I would 100% call Kayleigh one of my best girlies and all through blogging, I feel so fortunate to have met her as she really is my soul-sister! Read her blog here.
Scarlett London - Ah Scarlett, my first ever blogging trip was to Paris with Scarlett, I set a tweet and asked if anyone wanted to go away and Scarlett replied - within days, Paris was booked. We have countless memories and giggles and she pretty much knows absolutely everything about me - I would trust this girl with my life - she's honestly like family! Read her blog here.
Sammi The Beauty Crush - Ahhhh Sammi, you know someone is an absolute babe when coffee and cake turns into half a day of chatting because time just flies so much. I met Sammi and we instantly just clicked, she is the kindest, sweetest most humble and genuine girl you will ever meet. I couldn't say a bad word about this natural beauty. I went to her clothing launch for her new brand Novem & Knight the other month and I am insanely proud of this beautiful lady! We also roomed together in Ibiza and had some serious giggles about cute dog videos haha. I'm so comfortable around Sammi and completely myself. Love her so much. Check out her channel here.
Oli White TV - I had to get a boy in here too! Oli is an absolute babe and I spend most days missing him and wishing I saw him more! The above photo is way too old. When I do see him, we rent boats on the river and I make him follow me around fashion week haha. He makes me so proud every single day (he just got himself a lovely place in London) he works so hard and inspires me on a daily basis. Check out his channel here.
Ashley James - Ah Ashley, there's so much to say about how much I adore this girl. She is so straight talking and will literally give you honest, great advice for any situation - this girl really just knows what to say in most situations haha and has helped me many times. There's nothing like telling Ashley all my life problems and feeling rejuvenated afterwards because she just always helps and says the right thing. You can check out her blog here.
Danielle Peazer - I met Danielle because we sat next to each other at an event once (the Motel Blogger Brunch) and it was another Sammi situation really, we just chatted away so so much - it was one of those natural things where you just get on with someone so well instantly and I don't think you can beat meeting those kinds of people that you just instantly click with. Danielle is insanely hard working, completely inspirational but the most genuine, humble person ever. You can check out her blog here.
I would also just like to do a shout out to these girls above (some of whom you'll have read about in the main text of this post). We've got Suzie, Sammi, Tamara, Carly and Victoria. These are hands down five of the nicest most genuine girls I have ever met. I recently went to Ibiza with them (blog post coming this week but you can watch the vlog here) and it was so amazing to be surrounded by such genuine, like-minded girls. It's really not often in life that you find genuine people unfortunately but these girls are genuine, intelligent and inspirational. I'd like to say a huge thank you to them for being truly fabulous!
So there we have it, I wanted to share a little bit of love. Do you read any of the above blogs? If you're a blogger, have you met any people through the blogging community who are now friends too? If you don't have a blog, who are your favourite bloggers? Let's share some love!
Lots of love, Em x
