10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts

I am not sure if it’s the double taps, or the fact that the layouts are so intriguing, but everyone seems to be infatuated Instagram (including myself). I am constantly on the popular page just looking for new accounts to stalk.

You really loved when I posted all about my favorite bloggers to follow, so I thought that I would do a spin off post from that. Today I have 10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts for you. If you already follow some of these people, we are that much closer to becoming besties.

#BloggerBabe Series: Meet the Blogger

As a blogger, I am always curious to know what motivates other bloggers to get their work done. What their thought process is when it comes to blogging. Today I got to do just that, I got to interview a beautiful blogger friend of mine. Not only is Paige a very talented blogger, but she also has an amazing Instagram feed, along with a YouTube channel that has over 700 subscribers. Read along as I asked her all of the questions that I have been dying to know!

What/ who inspired you to start your channel/blog/Instagram?

I have always (since I was younger) followed lots of different beauty/fashion accounts, it’s been something I have always had a passion for. After seeing girls around my age build up the confidence to start a youtube channel or blog, I thought, maybe I could do this too? I have always had a lot to say, ask my parents and they would tell you I never shut up, I could speak for England!! I have so much to voice my opinion on, not just on beauty and fashion but on more personal things, if my social profiles can help/influence someone else, then my job is done. I would mainly say a lot of people around me inspired me, there’s nothing you can’t do as long as you put your mind to it.

How long have you been building your brand?

If I’m honest, I didn’t know ‘building a brand’ was a thing until around 6 months ago when I really started getting serious on my Instagram/Blog photography. I would say that I have been taking ‘building’ my social profile seriously for around a good 6 months when really nice deals started coming through from brands, that is when I started treating my social media more as a part time job rather than just a hobby, don’t get me wrong it is great to have fun on your profiles because there is no wrong way to do it, but I like to try and keep mine very professional and targeted to my audience.

What is the next step for you?

This is such a hard question, because with social media E V E R Y T H I N G is unpredictable, but I suppose if I had a choice it would be to grow my channels a lot more and maybe look at it becoming a full-time thing, blogging/social media is a passion of mine and I love creating content people want to see, it makes me feel so happy!!

Do you have a routine when it comes to uploading content?

I wouldn’t say I have a set routine, I mean most of my weekends when I’m not working are spent in London taking pictures for my Instagram/blog or filming videos for my channel but I wouldn’t go all the way to say I have a set routine, I do what I can and try not to stress if I don’t get everything done, as this is my hobby I don’t want to stress and suck the fun out of something I really enjoy.

Would you say that blogging and YouTube has changed your confidence?

One million percent, YES!! I had little to no confidence before I started my social media channels, I was very bullied at school mainly for the way I looked and that is something that has always stayed with me, but growing my channels and seeing so many people enjoy my content has built my confidence so much. I am now not afraid to stand in the middle of London looking sassy AF taking pictures because I am doing it for me, yes people may stand and stare but you aren’t going to see them again so what’s the point in worrying about it?

Do you have a favorite topic that you love uploading? Fashion, beauty, or travel?

When I first started blogging, beauty was the main thing I really got into, mainly because I had watched thousands of makeup tutorials it was something I loved. However, recently the past year or so fashion has stepped up to be something I am mega interested in and this is something I now talk about on a daily basis. Travel is also something I am extremely passionate about, you can most likely see that from Instagram because I am always going places.

Where do you plan on traveling next?

I am actually in Paris in a couple of weeks, but after that 100%, either Italy or Iceland is on the cards!!

Who would you say is your biggest role model?

In my life, definitely my Nan, she sadly passed away last year but she was a massive influence on me, she was always so sassy and fashionable, no word of a lie she would have a matching handbag to every outfit she owned (a complete life goal of mine haha) but she was always so supportive of everything I do socially.

Who is your biggest supporter?

My boyfriend has got to my number 1 fan!! He is always so interested in what I’m up to and is always excited to see what I get up to next, and probably my best friend Amy as well, she is always the first to congratulate me on something I achieve which is always so lovely!!

What is your drink order? Coffee, tea, soda?

A good old cup of English tea!!

What is your favorite color?

My favorite color has always been a really light blue, but if I were answering this fashion wise, it would have to be black haha.

Who is your favorite YouTuber?

Favorite YouTuber would have to be InTheFrow, I look up to her like a big sister I think she is just brilliant and she works so hard on all of her social platforms.

Who is your favorite blogger?

Again, this would have to be InTheFrow or Lissy Roddy, they are both amazing and their fashion accounts are beautiful!!

How would you describe your fashion style?

I honestly don’t have one, I see something I like and I buy it haha. I can go from dressing up joggers to a full ball gown to smart trousers and a blazer to jeans and a cute crop top, anything I love.

Wedding Wednesday! 

Hello everyone! I have just a few updates on the wedding. Nothing too crazy, but just enough to share. Before I get into all of that I want to stop and take a minute to say welcome to all of you who are just not stumbling on to my blog. I hope that you enjoy this post and follow me! I follow back. I also follow on all of my other social media! Twitter is the best way to get a hold of me. For any collaborations, I will link my email down below. Let’s get on with the updates. 

First I want to share that 5 out of 7 girls have bought their dress and shoes! I am going to have to say, that is a pretty good number and they bought them all the same day. It was so easy and I have to thank David’s Bridal for making it all happen! I went with two different dresses; one for my maid of honor and the other for my bridesmaids. The color of the MOH is petal and the other girls dresses are going to be like a dark grey. Here are the styles. Modeling for us today is my baby sister, I love her!  The dress on the right is the style that my MOH will be wearing and the other style is for my BM. Let me know what you all think? I fell in love with these dresses as soon as I laid my eyes on them and they looked so good with the shoes I picked out. The ladies that worked there were so helpful and the manager was amazing. I am really glad that I chose David’s. 

 

Next up I have the shoes, absolutely gorgeous. At first I had my mind set on converse, but the moment I seen these, everything changed. I want my girls to feel comfortable and not cause a domino effect as we all walk down the isle. Since I am not wearing heels, why make my girls wear them?  Here they are, the lace is going to go so well with the lace on the dress. Hopefully I can find some lace converse to go with my dress! If you haven’t seen my dress I will link the blog Here.

 

I am still in search for a veil,headpiece and a hair style for myself. I did find the hairstyle that I want my girls to rock!  I think an up do like this one is going to be amazing! I just love how they look so elegant. Please feel free to let me know what you think! Any suggestions and tips I am willing to listen! I am constantly on Pinterest doing research, so if you would like to see what I pin, follow me. I will have all of my social media listed below. I hope all of you have an amazing day! 

 
That is going to be all for my updates, like I said beforenot a lot, but just enough! Please like comment and follow! I follow back and keep in touch. I love making new friends.

Amanda Ensing Recreation 💜

  
Hello all of my beautiful people, I hope you all have been well! I have recreated a very dark Valentines Day look, originally created by Amanda Ensing. She is an amazing beauty guru on YouTube, I will link the video right Here. So without further ado, let’s get started! 

  

  • Today I started with my eyes, I like to do my brows, I feel like you can’t really know if your eyeshadow looks good until your brows are done. Then I prime my eyelids, feel free to use whatever primer you think is Nessecary. 
  • I used tape to make sure I got a really clean, precise line. We are working with black, so we don’t want it to end up all over the place. Then I got a black gel liner and used that as a base and applied that just on my lid. That is going to help the black stay and help darken the color. 
  • Next I placed a nuetral brown shade in my crease for out transition shade. 
  • After that is when you start packing a black eyeshadow on your lid. Make sure you start out with a little bit of color, because it is easier to add more than take color away. Black is very intense so take your time.  (Top middle brown color for transition shade.) 
  • After you pack some of the color on your lid, then we can start blending that color toward your crease. Blending is the most important technique ever! You don’t want your eyeshadows to look chalky or spotty. I used Milani’s eyeshadow Bella Black and then placed a shimmery black eyeshadow on top to give it a little extra something.     
  • Just keep blending and building the intensity until you get it to your liking. I also applied black liner in my water line and smudged some black eyeshadow on the lower lash line. Feel free to add lashes to spice up the look. I just popped on some mascara, did some contour and highlight. 
  • For lips I used Colourpop liquid lip in Teeny Tiny and this look is complete! Very simple, but very time consuming. If you don’t get it right off the back, just breath and take your time.   

I hope you all enjoyed this look! It’s not as good as Amanda’s, but I tried my best and hope you all liked it!  Make sure to keep in touch and follow me on all of my social media! Please like, comment and follow, I would greatly appreciate it.
