The biggest inspiration for me and my blog is other bloggers. Yeah it’s sweet when you pick up a magazine (on the odd occasion) and it sparks an idea for a blog post but it’s nothing quite like the inspiration I feel after reading one of these lovely ladies’ blogs. *How many times can you say ‘blog’ in one paragraph?*
The three women I have written about below constantly inspire me and make me want to do better in every aspect of my life. I know that sounds majorly cringeworthy but we all need people like that in our lives to motivate us and influence us in such a positive way. Young girls are in such a fortunate position these days where we have so many role models around who we can easily follow through social media and if you’re in dire need of inspiration then these three women are the best place to start. Just like I have, you’re bound to fall in love with their blogs, photography, style of writing, fashion sense and personality.
This woman is everything I want to be in life. Successful, modest, humble, happy, stylish, caring, talented, the list goes on. If I’m even a fraction as successful as she is in something I love then I’ll be chuffed. Her blog, Inthefrow, is the best of the best out there and every single piece of content her and Alex post inspire me to try harder. I also really value how she prefers to be labelled a blogger rather than a vlogger and I’m buzzing for her book to be released. Every single young woman, blogger or not, should follow Victoria to feel empowered, motivated and read her beautiful writing.
You want a young relatable woman who posts Instagram stories of her hoover? Beth’s your gal. She’s just fucking brilliant and you really have to admire her realness, honesty and ability to say things how they are. Her fashion is on point and affordable, her captions are hilarious and engaging and her blog posts are thought provoking and addictive. She inspires me to stay true to who I am and post what I want to post, as well as reminding me that it’s okay to eat pizza and lie in the bath for hours watching Netflix. What a fabulous combination (the inspiring and reminding bit, not the pizza and Netflix bit although that is also a banging combo).
Grace (or Ugly Face of Beauty as she used to be known) is one of the biggest babes on the internet. She is unapologetically her and that’s what I love so much about her content and just her as a person. I hit subscribe on her channel over six years ago and it’s been incredible to watch her journey and see how much she’s progressed as a TV presenter and author as well as a blogger. She brands herself as the internet’s big sister and I think that’s pretty spot on and exactly what I needed growing up, I just wish she was around when I was in my early teens as well. She’s incredibly honest, open, motivational, calming and completely cuts the bullshit. We all need a Grace in our lives!
Don’t get me wrong, this post wasn’t about blowing smoke up anyone’s arses, I just felt like inspiring others with the bloggers who inspire me… If that makes any sense in the slightest! I honestly think these women could do anyone the world of good and some of their content could really help you in the way it’s helped me.
Victoria taught me to work hard, stay humble and fall in love with Strathberry bags. Beth taught me it’s okay to be myself and that I’m not the only one going through shit. And last but not least, Grace taught me how to cope, be body confident and find the best ASOS picks! I just hope maybe one day I’ll be able to inspire others the way these beauts inspire me!
