Vloggers That I Love #4

Howdy!

I am so happy that I brought this series back because it seems everybody has been enjoying the last one a lot, so I figured it was time to come back for another post. This time we will be talking about family orientated YouTube channels. I have been loving these types of channels mostly because even though it’s usually a small fraction of their lives being recorded for us, they’re always so fun and interesting. I really look forward to a new vlog every week!

Now as much as this will be discussing the family side of these people, I really picked them for the fact that they’re all mothers but you get to see their interests in various things than besides their children. I was going to only list two for this post to keep up with my list, but I thought the last one fits better with this post than having to give it to another theme. Here are the channels that I think you should check out next!


Natalie Bennett | lifestyle + motherhood


Natalie has a second channels that includes her husband an their whole families. However, for this post, we are only highlighting her main channel. There are similarities to both of them as the kids: Liam, Judah, and Hailey are featured in several of her videos. I mean, you can’t expect her to turn off that part of her life. She does a lot of fun videos that include them right into the theme, like holidays, homeschooling, food, and even her daily routines.

As far as the lifestyle part, the term itself means “anything goes” so she does talk about beauty, fashion, health, and God. She’s had some issues with her health for the past few years, that involves her stomach, mostly it’s her GI tract and the woman has had a lot of changes in her diet between having to go both vegan and gluten-free at the same time. I mean, that in general is usually a choice you make on your own, but for some people it was recommended by your doctors. We haven’t had a proper update about her progress in a while so I hope she is doing better!

One of the things that I was surprised I wasn’t turned off about was the fact that both channels talk about their relationships with God. They do not shove it down your throat, but it does come up quite a bit in their vlogs. If you watch her morning routine video, you get a piece of it as she likes to take time out in the mornings to read sections of the Bible and incorporate it into her outlook of the day. I think because she has such a soft voice that whenever she does talk about her religion, it’s almost comforting and the fact that the kids want to learn about it is really cute too!


Megan Fox Unlocked | millennial, Mennonite & mom.


Now, if you’re thinking the actress Megan Fox made one heck of a life change, you’re wrong! This Megan Fox was born as a Mennonite in Pennsylvania. She lives a basically normal life, as she is a wife and mother of two: Evonne and Fletcher.

When I found this channel, I was a bit stunned but I really feel like I wasn’t the only one that has discovered her in the recent year or so! She has a whole video talking about others assumptions of what it is to be a Mennonite. It really did help at figuring out her way of life. For the most part, I’ve been around the Amish community, but hadn’t met anyone as a Mennonite until 2016. There are differences between the two, so before you go all judgmental, you need to really see her channel for yourself.

In a lot of ways, Megan and Natalie have a lot in common than besides their views in religion and motherhood, Megan also has a really nice voice. She doesn’t talk too fast or too quiet. She just seems like she wants to be your friend really, as she’ll give you some great tips about various things, such as decorating. I have grown to love those types of videos in the last month or so! She loves fashion, and the fact that she knows how to sew, she likes to make a lot of her own skirts and dresses, and even some household items like curtains too!


SparklyFamilyVlogs | teen parents of 3 living in Hawaii


The final YouTube family I love to watch is SparklyFamilyVlogs! Liola and her husband Na’ia are in their early twenties, parents to three beautiful, blond babies: twin boys Kekai and Koda, who have to be around four and daughter Everleigh who is under the age of two I think. They all live in Hawaii. Liola is a stay-at-home mom. They are basically homeschooling the children and they all live a vegan lifestyle.

How I managed to find them was interesting, because I think I was watching a vlog about a vegan dish and their newest video was on my right side, calling to me basically! I clicked it and was immediately curious about one of their sons, because they were running around behind their mama Liola, I wasn’t able to get a good look at the front of this child but I could see a familiar feature of the shoulders. They looked exactly like mine!

Little Koda has Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congentia too. No, I haven’t messaged them yet, I want to, but I don’t to overstep any boundaries so I’m still thinking about my approach before I go making a mess of myself! One of the reasons why I love watching their videos is because of him. He is so brave and living life to the fullest. Actually, the vlog I watched showed him trying to climb a tree with his brother. Koda can walk, he just can’t extend his arms, they’re bent at the elbow like mine. So, the fact that he basically walked on the bottom part of the tree was good enough for him. He was just excited to get that far I think! Liola is very nervous about him and how she’ll have to explain the differences and struggles to him and his siblings as they get older, but I think she and Na’ia will be just fine in the long run.

Before I go, I wanted to say that I didn’t think all of these families had more things than one in common with each other! I knew about the homeschooling and religion parts but it’s crazy to see it all written out in front of me! I know what I like, and that is an authentic sense of family even if it is on YouTube. They’re not bragging about the money that they could be gaining with their sponsored items, every vlog is like you’re hanging out with your best friend and since I can’t physically get out to be with my friends, this is enough for me!

Are you a fan of family YouTube channels? Do you watch any of the ones I mentioned above? If you have a favorite, please share them with me in the comments!

My Name In Blog Tag

Hello!

Every once in a blue moon, I’ll check out my Reader and read some new blog posts. I found a new tag that seemed really fun to do, plus I had done something similar with my Twitter username that same week! I have grown to love these different blog tags now; they’re usually easy to come up with and you’re able to schedule them way ahead in time, so really they’re like the perfect post when you’re really lazy!

Ally Writes Things is the one that shared it on her blog. She does a LOT of really cool tags that are just not about books, because that’s one reason why I never liked them before the end of 2018. I have been tempted to do quite a few of the tags she’s done in the past, especially the movie based ones!

The Rules For This Tag:

  • Spell your name with other blog names
  • If you have a long blog name, feel free to shorten it/only use part of it!
  • Write a bit about each blog you mention to tell the world how much you love them.
  • Pingback to the creator of this tag
  • Pingback all the blogs you mentioned so they can see why you love them.

Here are the blogs and mini shout out to the people behind them!

G – Geeky Tourist | Emma has a wonderful blog on her hands! She talks about books, movies, TV shows and even some science too! The blog post that made me love her was the Harry Potter locations in London (she also has one based in Edinburgh too!) and considering I am a BIG fan of the Harry Potter films this was right up my Diagon alley! Get it?

O – Sorry, unfortunately I don’t follow any “O” blogs!

T – The Little Blog Of Vegan | Holly Jade runs a vegan blog (duh!) but it’s not just about vegan food she talks about, it’s everything that makes up the vegan lifestyle! So, she has posts about why she wanted to go that route, plus discusses other cruelty free products like make up, clothes, etc. Everybody can learn a lot by her blog and you can definitely find yourself scrolling through the many recipes she has created late at night, trust me I’ve done this once or twice in the past couple of years!

M – Moving Picture Review | Shona has a great movie blog! She loves various of genres, and has inspired me to talk about movies again on here too. Since 2017, I have been open to discussing my individual favorites and what kind of genres I like to stick to, but I’ve even started to explore others that I might have lost interest in over the years or maybe have been too afraid to watch before, so she’s done a lot for me in that aspect!

E – Ella Was Here | Ella is a gentle soul. She really makes me happy, her posts always help me feel calmer and her entire blog is like my inner aesthetic I think, it’s just beautiful! How I want mine to be one day! It seems strange to describe it like that, but once you check it out you’ll (hopefully) know what I’m trying to say!

G – Gin & Biscuits | Kristina is a beauty, lifestyle and travel blogger. Her blog is gorgeous! Really easy to read, which is one thing that I search for in blogs because there are some with itty-bitty font and you have to squint your eyes to read each word. It’s super annoying! Anyways, I like to mostly read her lifestyle and travel posts. They’re always so bucket list worthy!

H – The Howling Wolfheart | I found Kitten’s blog by chance and from the moment I went on it, I fell deeply in love with it! I am a sucker for nerdy blogs. I like being able to find similar interests with people, especially bloggers, and if they are proud to talk about their superheroes, action films, etc I will forever follow them!

A – Absolutely Lucy | I love Lucy’s blog a lot! She makes you want to travel to places that maybe you have never considered before! She’s been one of my mentors in the blogging world, I’ve learned a lot from her and she is always honest and sweet to me!

N – Nourish ME | Steph is a very fun blogger, she talks about various topics from mental health, baking, make-up, books, the list goes on. I like to see what the bloggers really enjoy and I think she has the perfect mix of things that I think everybody would like as well!

So, what did you think of this? Truth be told, this was actually a lot more difficult than I originally thought it would be! I’m also very glad that I talked myself out of including the “Blog” at the end or I would never get this up for you! Despite this though, it was pretty fun to talk about some of my friends again. I hope you go and check out these blogs and enjoy yourself!

Favorite Blog Posts Of 2018!

Howdy!

Yeah, I’m a little late writing this post, but it’s January so I’m still okay with getting these types of posts up! It’s also been three weeks (or so) after I first put up my last post of 2018, I asked everyone at the end of it if you wanted to see my favorite posts of the past year. Although I didn’t get any replies for it, I just decided to do it anyways!

A lot of bloggers will do these posts of only talking about their most popular posts of the year, but I don’t like going that route. Some of my most viewed blog posts are full of grammar and spelling mistakes, so the fact that get any reads at all kind of freaks me out!

Here are some of my favorite blog post of 2018!

I think 2018 had a lot of informative pieces. I wanted to give new bloggers some tips that have helped me over the years. I also wanted to be a voice for the disabled people who might be thinking about creating a blog, that talks about their lives as well. I think having more than one perspective on a disability is good for everybody, because we have our differences but always looking into resources to help one another too.

Despite being sick at the start of the year and going through a major depression spell at the end of the summer, I managed to get a lot of interesting posts written up for you guys. And here I thought, it was just all about movies, but nope. I talked about various things that go with all three of my niches: disability, lifestyle, and music.

I even tried to bring back a couple of old stuff too! I really do miss doing those flash fiction challenges. All of the ones I used to do have ended and blogs have all but disappeared. So, I’ve had to search on Twitter and Pinterest for various prompts, and I’ve been successful. When March came over, I wrote my first story on here since probably 2012! It was great to be back doing some free writing again. I’m hoping to continue on them for 2019 too!

One last thing that I did this past year was talk about babies. Between my sister and cousin Kristi, it was baby central on the blog! Since Kristi and her family now live in Louisiana, I will not be able to do a lot of intimate blog posts about Joseph and her new baby! However, I will eventually do the post about her second child’s arrival. I still feel extremely guilty for not being able to get that up in November! Of course, I will be talking about my nephew this year. I think we’re due for another update on him and I will work with Blondie to see what kind of pictures she’d like to share with you.

What were your favorite blog posts of 2018? Is there a topic you’d like for me to discuss on a future post? Let me know!

The Disabled Blogger Tag

tag1

Howdy!

Today I have another tag for you! I found this while on the #DisabledBloggers Twitter account, it was by Elin of My Blurred World. I will admit it’s a little different compared to the others I’ve done in the past. If you have a disability of some sort, you might enjoy doing the tag, and honestly everybody can possibly learn more about me as a disability blogger.

When and why did you start your blog?

I started this blog in 2011, and I don’t really remember having a good reason to creating this blog. I think I was really bored with my first blog, there was only so much I was taught about it, and for some odd reason I decided I needed a change and decided to abandon that one and move on to this platform. I actually had help with getting up and running, thanks to another fellow WordPress blogger, but it was also easier to figure out compared to Blogger.

Did you intend to talk about your disability online in the beginning?

I think a part of me wanted to at least keep it at a minimum but something happened in the very beginning that I decided that I can’t hide my disability. I always like seeing and reading people’s reactions after finding out that I do things with my feet but I was fairly cautious on what I was comfortable with talking about in the beginning.

Have you ever been skeptical about talking about your disability online?

I have a few different disabilities, I have my main condition Arthrogryposis, that by itself is difficult to explain to people, but the fact that I have add the reasons why I only use my feet and then eventually explain the names of them, because leave it to me to have two different foot conditions! And then finally talk about the Scoliosis and why I had three surgeries on my upper body when I was 10 years old.

Once you get everything out, people kind of give you this look like they just can’t think that can happen to a person, so talking about it online, does make it somewhat better, because you don’t have that eye-to-eye contact, but you’re still familiar with the expressions and if you’re like me, you’d kind of like to see what their faces do. Unfortunately, one of the downsides of this is that people are generally too afraid to ask you anything else because they don’t know if they’d be able to handle it and they want to redeem themselves by not being a pest. Personally, I’m fine with the questions. I’d rather a person ask me all of the questions they want, then assume what I can do on a daily basis.

What kind of response have you/do you receive in terms of your disability related posts?

In the beginning, everybody was fairly supportive and really shocked too! I also never posted pictures of myself in the first five years I blogged, it wasn’t until I started doing outfit posts that I literally started seeing a change in people that read my blog–like she’s being serious, she’s in a wheelchair and her arms are bent! Now that I’ve kind of gotten myself deeper into the blogging community, I hardly ever get to see people be really curious about my disability.

Do you write/talk about other topics apart from your disability?

I don’t talk about my disability as much, I feel because I’ve lost my ability to upload photos and of course, winter came around that I had to stop doing outfit of the day posts, but as the weather warms up, I’m hoping to bringing those back to my blog. I also think that after my nephew, Nolan arrives, I’ll bring back my disability posts because I’ll be learning on how to do things for this little baby.

I am mostly a lifestyle and music blogger. I remember somebody describing the word “lifestyle” as anything goes, because it can be a mixture of different topics. As far as the music goes, I started writing reviews since I created this blog, but I didn’t really do it full-time until 2015 and you can usually find those on Thursdays and I like building a good, strong friendship with artists and brands. It’s fun too!

What steps do you take to make your blog accessible to yourself as well as other people?

One thing that makes really mad, especially whenever I go on other blogs, is that the font is really small or light in color. I’ve actually been known to tell a few bloggers about it after they’ve redone their site as a whole. I’ve been both supported and called out for saying it too! For some odd reason, nobody likes being told that their font is too small to read! I shouldn’t have to make the font size over 200% because you think it’s pretty or fine the way it is!

So with that being said, I try to keep the font size and format easy to read for everybody. I tend to like the Century or anything else in that type. I feel like this is the only thing I can physically, and personally can do at the moment, If I ever decide to have a more professional looking layout, I’ll still keep this in mind, because I want to be a good example to other bloggers and my readers..

What is your favorite thing about blogging about your disability?

One of the things that I like doing, is coming up with crafts or basic things to do, and write about them. Even though my nana and I are not around each other as much right now, we still have a lot of different posts where she just let me do anything I wanted to do. Some of them were about learning how to do them with my feet, those were hand chosen by me to try to recreate and some of them went smoother than others. They’re also favorites among my readers too! I think they enjoy seeing me do different things that they wouldn’t expect me to do either.

What are your top three favorite disability related blog posts that you’re ever published?

  1. Blog Post Ideas for Disabled & Chronic Illness Bloggers 
  2. Photography 101 | How To Hold Your Camera
  3. Why You Should Do OOTD Posts 

Do you think that the disabled blogger/YouTuber community is overlooked?

It’s strange, five years ago, it was so difficult to find anybody on both Twitter and YouTube that talked about their disability. I would seriously try to find others like me every few months just to see if anybody had created an account, but now that both blogging and making vlogs have become so popular, it’s like we are EVERYWHERE! I like it, but in a way I feel we are overlooked by brands, most are looking for a specific person, so they’re not open enough to help or work with you like other people.

I would love to travel around like my friends Laura, Lucy, and Julia but like I said, when you have a physical disability, opportunities like the ones they’re given are harder to find. I still love the crap out of these girls, but I would like to have the same offers like them despite my disability, you know? Us, in wheelchairs want to learn, discover and travel our butts off too.

Do you find it difficult to think of new disability related content to publish?

Yes and no, well I guess it all depends on your situation.

When I was around my nana and at my grandparent’s house, we did a lot of different things. She taught me a lot of basic things that a normal person should know how to do, we didn’t do anything too big, but I know a lot more than I did beforehand. And everything that we were doing, I would blog about it. I wanted to show everybody that I could do this and that, this includes opening a can of soda, putting the trash bag on the can, etc.

Now that I’m not doing those things on a weekly basis, I feel both useless and stuck because why did I learn all of these things, if I can’t put them into good use? And then the blogging part is there like, what am I going to talk about now? I feel bad that I’m having to wait for a baby to arrive and using him to kind of go back into those posts, because that’s not fair to the two of us.

One thing that it does create is another journey into something new!

Do you think that blogging about your disability helps to change people’s perceptions?

I really hope so. I mean, I think it’s cool that I don’t have a condition that people are kind of used to hearing, which I have to say, there’s nothing wrong with it. I just think it makes me more unique to have something completely different. Even though, I feel like it wouldn’t feel like ages talking about the other things included with Arthrogryposis! I like being able to do things with my feet and proving people wrong.

Well that was fun! It was a different little tag to do. Hopefully you enjoyed it and thought it was informative too! If you know of any other cool tags you’d like for me to do, send them over in the comments section! I may not do every single one, but I’ll think about it and maybe surprise you at a later time.

Feet | Fetish vs. Phobia

13879338_1178175082246820_6554742477112940352_n

Hi 🙂

Before I start on this post, I’d like to point out to anyone reading this that I wasn’t trying to make anyone feel bad, I just felt the need to talk about a couple of experiences I had, that I thought went along with the article you’ll be hearing about in a second. It does lighten up with the second section but I wanted to give everybody a warning before you went on ahead, so with that being said, let’s get onto the post for Monday!

Last year, I read this very enlightening article on Push Living. It’s a digital magazine dedicated to people who use wheelchairs and they focus on various topics but mostly lifestyle and travel.

The piece Gina wrote was about devotees. I’ve known about the term a long time and but she explained about the different types of devotees, as she put it “the creeps and awkward turtles”. I’m glad she went on to discuss both sides because if anybody has ever had to deal with a devotee in their lifetime, you just think they’re all sickos, but no, they’re not!

So what is a devotee?

A devotee is somebody attracted to a person with a disability, mostly who use braces and wheelchairs. This is actually a real fetish. In her article she talks about how devotees, the ones that see it purely for their sexual desires and the “admirers” who are basically perfect gentlemen and ladies as they’re a little more shy but want to actually establish a good friendship with you whether than creep you out with weird questions and pictures. This was the best example I could give you to help show you the differences between them. If you want to read the rest of Gina’s article, go here!

I think I’ve had an experience with a devotee before, the reason why I say “I think” is because back in the day I didn’t know what the term actually meant, but the more I think about it and remember how many other women he had as friends on his profiles is still shocking! I met this guy on MySpace (I know, that probably should have been my warning right there!) and he was very nice. The guy was the reason why I basically looked forward to going home after school! I had issues talking to guys my own age and the fact that he was cool with my disability and let me talk about my day I grew to really like him and I generally wanted to know how his day went as well! It was a nice friendship while it lasted!

By the time I went on Facebook, I basically lost contact with him. Two years ago, I actually found him on there but instead of having a totally different picture of himself, he used the exact same one he had on MySpace. Now I don’t know about you guys, but in the years that passed I would change my profile picture a few dozen times! Why did he keep this one? And then to top it all off, he was apart of multiple disability groups and pages and at that time, I actually figured out the definition for “devotee” and I began to feel really cautious. I literally wanted to smack myself up the head because there were signs that something wasn’t right when I was talking to him on MySpace years ago!

Nevertheless, I was really sad to have to give up on that friendship. I just thought it all looked too fishy to continue on with it. No, I didn’t confront him because I still had all of the messages we passed back and forth to each other running around in my head. I just unfriended him, and I had even debated if I should have blocked him but I couldn’t get myself to do it. The one time you start to not only feel beautiful in your skin but you feel like you could’ve been catfished at the same time!

13872851_1178175072246821_1444550659690195253_n

As far this next part, we switch topics completely and talk about how feet can make people really uncomfortable. Apparently, there’s no in between, you either love feet so much that you end up having a fetish for them or you actually despise them.

When I was in middle school, I had a boy in my science class basically come clean about one of his dislikes. Apparently he was afraid of feet. He said it out loud to two other of our classmates and I was in front of him with a very confused look on my face I guess. I knew people have different phobias, some can be afraid of spiders, clowns, heights and even goats! It just puzzled me to think he was scared of feet! For a person who does everything with my feet, this kind of felt like an insult in a way! I can’t explain it any better for you!

What makes it even worse for me though, is that I dared to ask what he thought about mine. I think he was a bit hesitant with his answer. I don’t think he ever gave me a straight answer, you could tell on his face he was conflicted about it. I mean, he was asking a girl that drove an electric wheelchair and had a knack of running over innocent feet throughout her life, he had every right to be scared! I’m just kidding. I’m not that big of a bitch. I would never run over somebody’s feet for a reason like that.

I could understand the reason why he or anyone else would have a phobia of feet. I have my days where I see my dad’s feet and they instantly make my stomach upset. Sorry dad! And honestly, that just made be a guy thing! They have no problem of itching and picking all areas of their feet anyways, so I actually stay away from men’s feet in general. So if somebody came up to me and said they didn’t like feet, I wouldn’t pay them any mind about it.

The older I get, the less chances of my feet going back to their former glory. It’s bad enough that my footwriting has gotten worse! The only thing I have left to do to make my feet seem prettified is to paint my nails different colors. We’ve learned not to use the straight clear glitter because for one you need like four coats for it to show up at all and then scrub until you basically take the nail off to remove it. You guys seem to like my nails paint, don’t ya? I actually need a fresh coat on them. I still have the pink and silver that mom put on for Blondie’s wedding chipping away.

So what are your thoughts about devotees and their fetishes? Are you afraid of feet? If so, how did it come about in your life?

What To Get A Blogger For Christmas!

10858519_377363749106959_8052234206917278829_n

Last year, I was nice enough to build a Christmas wishlist for all of my family. I always get told by family, my mom especially that I am really difficult to shop for. I remember my mom coming into my room the day after I published the post, she said it was very helpful. I plan on doing another Christmas wishlist for clothes and other stuff, but I started thinking about things that would be great for bloggers so I had to go with my gut and write out this post.

Since I’ve been working on photography game, I figured I still need a few things to keep at home so I don’t have to wait until I go over to my nana’s, I can do them all in my room. This isn’t just for me, if you know a blogger but don’t have a clue what to get them, maybe this will help you a little. I’ve listed everything on what would be inexpensive to possibly really expensive.

BEAUTY:

I’m not a beauty blogger, but I follow quite a bit on all of my social media accounts to know there are a lot of things that beauty bloggers would appreciate to get as Christmas presents. My advice is take a look at some of their recent posts, see what kind of brands they prefer–make sure that you respect their views on animal cruelty products! Try to find a recent “favorites” list of products that they like to use for autumn/winter. If you need some help in that department I put together a small list of some cosmetic brands. Here are some brands that are animal cruelty-fee: B, Barry M, Elf Cosmetics, LUSH, NARS, NYX Cosmetics, and Urban Decay.

Hair Ties/Clips
Lipsticks
Eyeliners
Eye Shadow
Mascara
Blush Palette
Face Masks
Bath Bombs
Nail Polishes
Fragrances
Shampoos/Conditioners
Blowdryers
Straighteners
Tanning & Spa packages

LIFESTYLE:

Finding ideas for lifestyle bloggers was easier said than done. I’m even a lifestyle blogger and I could not think for the world what we would want, of course not all of us want these things I’m listing. It’s just an idea to get you started. Again, if you follow a lifestyle blogger, you could look through recent posts and see what you could find.

Socks
Blankets
Calendar
Diary/Journals/Notebooks
Daily Planner
Books
Headphones
Subscription to favorite magazine
Purse

PHOTOGRAPHY:

Now if any of my family is reading, this is the section that will help me out a LOT in the next couple of months to nice photos for my blog. Technically, I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer for you to give to be used as a prop, but if there is you might want to check and see what the person normally uses in their pictures and go from there. I tried to list as many as I could.

Flowers
Scrapbook Sheets
Magazines
Foam Board
Rings
Fabric
Candles
Small Dishes
Tripod
Camera

Blogs That I Love #23

blogs

When I figured I’d go back to these posts, I didn’t think I’d actually keep up with it or have a difficult time selecting three bloggers for the post. I follow a LOT of blogs on Facebook, Twitter, and Bloglovin that it can be pretty overwhelming at times. So you could understand why I had to shorten my list down a bit from 5 to 3 a post. I knew that I wouldn’t feel comfortable continuing these posts into December either. I’ve got a lot of things lined up (mentally) and I need to focus on them first! I’m hoping I’ll bring them back once January starts!

  1. Blue Sky Daze – Sinead is growing to be one of my favorite bloggers of 2015! If I did a post of favorite bloggers of this year I’m pretty sure I’d pull out my hair! Honestly, all three blogs I’ve selected for this week would be on that list – how interesting! I really love her lifestyle and food posts the most. I also love the way she takes pictures. They look very professional and she’s been inspiring me to up my game lately!
  2. The Flower That Blooms – I don’t know but I honestly don’t follow a lot of sisters running one blog, I think I’ve only had two or three, but I’ve been going back to Lauren and Rachel’s blog recently. They talk an array of topics from fashion, beauty, to college related posts. Surprisingly, I’ve been reading their fashion posts! Rachel is more like me in a way though, she likes the darker side of clothes. Another topic I tend to read of theirs is anything to do with Lush. I’ve never used the stuff but the more I read the different posts about their products I want to, BAD!
  3. Missamrunaway – I love this girl! She’s the sweetest! She doesn’t share her name and that’s perfectly fine! She’s also a teenage, beauty, lifestyle, and kawaii blogger. I don’t necessarily know what the “kawaii” means but I’m sure I’ll find out soon! She does monthly blog post ideas, I love them so much! They’re so helpful for when your blogging mojo is nowhere to be found. She recently posted one full of Christmas post ideas that I might look through soon and find some inspiration for more posts for next month!
