GGSpotlight banner2

Hi, babes!

Welcome back to part 2 of the Glitz & Glitter Spotlight! This is another list of blogs I am loving at the moment and I truly think you should support these bloggers! I have a few more installments coming after this, so be ready for more amazing blogs!

My Passion Projects

Maud is the lovely owner and creator of My Passion Projects, a blog where you can find so many resources on writing, self-help, exploration, and personal development.  The layout of My Passion Projects is so clean and feminine, which is something I love! Maud has really put so much heart into My Passion Projects and I know you are going to love it as much as I do.  There are also freebies and tips, so you have no reason to not check out Maud’s site! The link is in the blog title! (*wink*) Two of my favorites on MPP are the Starters Guide To Living Healthy and 10 Highly Inspirational TED Talks.

I’ve Found Waldo

Melina, what a darling! Her blog I’ve Found Waldo is so chic and I love all of the bullet journal posts she has.  I really admire people who keep bullet journals because that stuff takes commitment.  Melina is an overall fun person and I love her social media feeds.  Two of my favorite posts on I’ve Found Waldo are 2018 Bullet Journal Set Up and 2018 Skincare Routine .

Born To Be Bright

Sofia’s blog Born To Be Bright is everything I love in the blogging world.  Her site layout, the themes, and the vibes from BTBB are stellar and I love how you can see all the though she puts into her blog.  I also really like supporting bloggers who have been around for a bit and Sofia started blogging back in 2013.  One of my faves on Born To Be Bright is Stay Moisturized This Winter because heavens know I need it!

Soulful Seeds

Zahra’s blog Soulful Seeds is a great site for how to live a great life and grow spiritually.  From forming healthy relationships with food to killing 5 bad morning habits, Soulful Seeds has many resources to help you along in your spiritual journey.  Zahra’s site is so chill and gorgeous and she is so welcoming. Check out Zahra on Twiter and Pinterest for even more inspo!

Beauty Folio

So I know what you are thinking: “Mimi, what’s Beauty Folio?” Well, since you asked, Beauty Folio is the gorgeous creation from Emma, natural beauty lover.  Her blog is beautiful and I love her posts on Glossier, beauty boxes, and product reviews.  I always love reading about natural beauty products or ethically made products because if there are good products to replace some of the brands I currently use, I am all for it.  Make sure to connect with Emma on her Twitter and gorgeous Instagram feed!

The Thrifting Ginger

I love book bloggers and YouTubers because they have such a fun blogging category.  They can get lost in a book and then have an outlet where they can tell everyone their thoughts.  Plus by reading a book blog post on a book that I may want to read, I can get a better insight on the book itself and determine if I still want to read it or not.  Raylynn at The Thrifting Ginger does just that and her blog is so enjoyable to read.  I particularly love her post on Dancing for Degas. She also loves thrifting (if you couldn’t tell by the title!).

Homebird Hang-Ups

Animals, books, mental health, and home…sounds like a great blog, right? The answer is yes, yes it is.  Homebird Hang-Ups is a blog that has all of that and more in one place.  Claire is a great person and I love seeing her journey through blogging.  Two of my favorite posts on Homebird Hang-Ups are You OK Hun and St. Lucia Likes, Loves, and Loathes.  You can also find Claire on Instagram (trust me, you’ll want to follow her feed!)!

That’s all of the blogs and bloggers mentioned in this part of the Glitz and Glitter Spotlight! The third part will be out soon and I can’t wait for you to see the other blogs!

I hope you all have a great week and a fabulous weekend!

Happy Friday, my babes!

I am sure you have seen blog posts like this on other sites, but I am happy to finally be spreading some love and spotlight some blogs that I am really enjoying at the moment and I think you should follow.

Curly Hair Vegan

Briana encourages her readers to live a healthy life and she has so many great articles on food, lifestyle, and spirituality. She created CHV to encourage people to go back to the basics and shows just how easy it is to live a healthy lifestyle that is fulfilling, productive, and overall filled to the brim with positivity. Briana is one of my favorite bloggers and I always enjoy reading her blog posts. When I get an email update in the morning, I’ll typically open it and read the post first thing when I get up. A touch of positivity at the start of the day is always a good idea! Two lovely reads on Curly Hair Vegan that I had a splendid time reading are about oil pulling and the benefits when adding it into your routine and how to make scrumptious Buddha bowls.

Brighton The Day

You have probably seen her pins floating around Pinterest in the most fashionable ways or looking great on Instagram while spreading such a great message, but if you haven’t, Brighton Keller is an incredible blogger who uses her platform for only good and positive. Her outreach is rather large and her Instagram stories really speak to her followers and they can relate to them. I love Brighton The Day because it is the one place I can go when I need a good bit of fashion advice, yummy recipes, a boost in my faith, or just a good laugh. Brighton is the kind of person who makes you feel like you have been friends for a long time and I love that about her. Two of my favorite posts on BTD are a list of Brighton’s fave Christian Podcasts and It’s Okay To Not Be Okay.

Elegant Living Everyday

Jennifer Lynn and I have been following each other on Twitter for a bit and we sometimes run into each other in the same circles, which is so fabulous because I love seeing fellow blogging ladies furthering their careers and interests. So what is her blog? Elegant Living Everyday. No, not just on date night or ladies night, but every single day. She takes you through a life’s journey to live beautifully all the time and always keeps things as real as can be. Jennifer’s blog will help restore elegance in your life and I love it. Two of my favorite posts are How To Begin Your Journey and What Does It Mean To Live an Elegant Life. Both will be great to help kickstart your elegant journey!

Tea and Maz

Mariam is a brilliant blogger and I am so in love with her blog! Tea and Maz focuses on mental health, lifestyle, inspiration, and books, all of which are part of living a wonderful and full life. Her website is absolutely beautiful and you also must follow her on Instagram! Mariam is a beautiful human being and I know you are going to love her as much as I do! Two of my favorite posts on her blog are 23 Things I’ve Learnt In 23 Years and her post on Daniel Wellington Watches (I love a good watch!)

Learning Lily

Lily is a beautiful soul who I originally met on Twitter, probably while going through a blogger chat or follow group. She is such a great person and I adore her. Her blog, Learning Lily, is all about travel, lifestyle, and fashion, 3 of my favorite things! Lily’s blog is absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to see more of her accomplishments in the coming year. Two of my faves are In What Ways Is Instaram Affecting Us and Reflecting on 2017. Check out her posts and leave her a comment!

The Pink Paperdoll

Abbie is the mastermind behind The Pink Paperdoll where all things lifestyle meet unique vintage and eco-friendly natural living. Her dog Perry makes occasional appearances and he is the cutest lil bean! I do love the overall feel of The Pink Paperdoll and it is such a cute blog. You can really tell Abbie has put time and hard work into everything she does. Good job, queen! Two of my favorite posts on PP are In Praise of Old Books and 4 Unique Places To See In South Dakota.

You may have seen on Twitter this past Monday that I asked for blogs to have in this post. I asked this for a few reasons. One, there are so many blogs out there that have yet to have exposure or views even if they are amazing, so I was hoping to get smaller blogs more views and deserved exposure. Second, because there are so many blogs out there, it can be hard to come across certain blogs and while some of these blogs have a bigger reach and follower base, that doesn’t mean they aren’t amazing. I also wanted to find more blogs that I would love and want in the Glitz and Glitter Spotlight!

To bloggers who responded to my tweet and your blog wasn’t featured in this post or the next ones, I apologize. Your blog is amazing and because I got such an overwhelming response, I am not able to have decent sized posts that don’t go too long, even with a second part coming next week. However, I do think all of the blogs are great and for those blogs who didn’t make the Spotlight, I am going to quote retweet the links you sent me and say what I liked about your blog.

I received and read through 77 blogs in one day and when I started out, I only expected to get 5 or so, if that. Seeing all of those blogs was incredible. There were book bloggers, lifestyle, beauty, fashion bloggers, mental health bloggers, and everything under the sun. You all expanded my views and touched my heart with some of your stories. You each deserve your own separate blog posts because you are so unique.

If you liked this post and can’t wait to see the next installment in the Glitz and Glitter Spotlight series, I would truly appreciate it if you shared this post. Not only will it help Glitz and Glitter, but it will help the bloggers featured.

Who is one of your favorite bloggers? Let me know in the comments!

I hope you have an absolutely fabulous Friday and a great weekend. I’ll keep you all updated as to when part two will be up next week, so make sure to follow me on Twitter to stay in the loop!

Lots of love and hugs!
