I started writing this as a post on my blog facebook page but it was just getting way too long so I decided to write it as a blog post. With everything going on in Ireland with the Instagram page “BloggersUnveiled” this topic has been on my mind for some time now. It shows how much people take on what influncers/bloggers/youtubers do. Those titles come with responsibilitys and we need to be more honest! Now a days it is hard as you cant always tell what is real or not on social media. Even though we can do whatever we want with our blogs I just find it very important to be honest.
For me it is all more important that what I say or do is to be honest & true about anything. I create my stuff for people to put their faith in my opinions, trust what I say and for them to make up their mind on the purchasing decisions.
We don’t have to love everything we try and that’s what makes us more real and more relatable! I have faced the fact that there is absolutely noting wrong with saying you didn’t like something because in fact people will be more likely to trust you when you are not always saying every product you try is great.
When I started blogging and started getting things sent to me, I wanted to just like everything so I wouldn’t need to tell a PR company that I didn’t like something so they would keep me on the list but I realised how ridiculious that was because you deserve as my followers to hear what I really think of the items. I cannot be fake and pretend to like a product when I don’t! There has been products I didn’t review because I didn’t like them at all but than again certain things come down to personal preference and you need to remember that. I have not been paid to write or review anything but in the future if I am I will be staying true to it all and being honest about it!
As a blogger you got to think the long run and not short run as it will all be worth it later on.
If you havnt been living under a rock you would have known that one of my favourite Fashion and Beauty Youtubers – Carli Bybel here. has teamed up with Missguided to create a collection based on her amazing femine style, She would be one of the main girls I go to for inspiration. Carli Bybel would have been one of the first girls I would have watched on youtube, I love her style and her personality.
When I heard she was going to be doing this collection I was so excited and couldnt wait to see it. The collection is featuring dresses, midi skirts, fishnet and satin, which every piece is so her. I have looked up the site and I am in love with everything!! The colours of her collection are grey, white, pink and nude. These are colours you cant go wrong with.
My top picks are:
Pleated silky maxi dress grey €59.85
Embroidered side wide leg trousers nude€53.20
Caged jumpsuit white €53.20
Long sleeve lace cut out bodycon dress pink€79.80
This is a video that Carli Bybel uploaded to youtube of the first look on her collection. Some are not on the site but you get a better look on the items.

My favourite piece has to be the Duster Coat!
This months favourite blogger/youtuber is British girl Sarah Ashcroft aka That Pommie Girl who is a gorgeous fashion blogger. I have been following Sarah for about 2 years now and l am obsessing over everything from her clothes, makeup, hair and her shoe collection!
Her outfits are perfectly put together, co-ordinated well but with an edgy twist. She is a self-confessed shopaholic and loves blogging because it’s the perfect opportunity to “show off my clothes that hardly ever see the light of day“. This girl can never do wrong shes fabulous!

I thought I would talk about my favorite Youtubers/Bloggers but I have a few and I know this blog post would be way too long! So what I have decided to do is have one blog post a month featuring a favorite youtuber/blogger that I like, Why I like them, my favorite videos etc. YouTubers and bloggers are great to watch, they give ideas for posts and most of all, there’s nearly always someone with a post on whatever it is you want to find out about! There are loads of bloggers out there and it’s fun to be one too! (Although, I must admit, I’m not quite up to their standard).
I will start this with a well known Irish girl: SoSueMe – Suzanne Jackson
So Sue Me Blog, Where do I start.. I have been following this girl for a good while now and watching her get bigger and bigger is great! Suzanne is one of the most successful blogs I follow.I love this girl style and makeup look, shes always amazing! I got to meet Suzanne as I went to one of her workshops this year and she is the most friendly and down to earth person. Suzanne has launched two books, a nail varnish range and has something else on the way (Oh, the excitement!) Suzanne trained as a beautician, She posts numerous videos on YouTube in relation to makeup application, clothing and cosmetic hauls, hair and just things about her lifestyle.
Keep an eye out each month for my favorites! Let me know who your favorites are because I love finding new youtubers and bloggers to get interested in!
