The Best of the Best | Your Favourites #3

Time flew by in March and I seemed to have completely forgotten about my Best of the Best series! I am however back with a few of your favourites. I think you'll find lots of new blogs to read today!

Louise would like to nominate Hayley from Sparkles and Stretchmarks 

I nominate Hayley at http://sparklesandstretchmarks.blogspot.co.uk as she writes beautifully, tells the truth about pregnancy and has some fabulous giveaways going on at the moment! Plus, she's a genuinely lovely person who always puts a smile on my face. Much love to her xx

Emma  would like to nominate Carly from Carly Watts  and Caroline from Sparkly Vodka

I would like to nominate Carly at http://carlywatts.blogspot.co.uk/ she draws some of the loveliest illustrations I've seen, she comes across as a really nice person and I think she should have so many more followers than she does.

Another blogger I'd like to nominate is Caroline at http://www.sparklyvodka.com/ she features a nice mix of beauty & fashion, her photographs are really good too.

Nuala Maria would like to nominate Emma-Louise from Belles Avenue and has a lot to say about her blog!

When Shona tweeted asking which blogs we have been loving lately, I immediately thought of Emma from Belle's Avenue. Belle's Avenue is fast becoming one of my favourite blogs to read. The first time I stumbled across Belle's Avenue, I immediately noticed how beautiful the pictures and layout are. I even thought Belle's Avenue is one of the 'bigger', more famous beauty blogs out there. Emma's pictures are definitely some of the best I've seen!

The posts on Belle's Avenue are all really informative, detailed and well written. Emma writes about products which I love too (for example Essie nail polishes and Real Techniques brushes). Lately I've been reading some of Emma's posts featuring Origins products, and those products are on my wish list now. I'm definitely be going to Belle's Avenue when deciding which products I should buy in future. Because Emma likes similar products to me, I really trust her opinion.
The posts one Belle's Avenue are all really honest, and I love how Emma lets her readers know if there's something about a product she doesn't like and how to best use a product.
Emma always replies to all her blog comments, and I think it's really nice when a blogger interacts with their readers and replies to comments (even though I'm myself guilty of taking too long to reply!). 
All in all I can say Belle's Avenue is a gorgeous blog written by a lovely beauty blogger. I can really recommend checking it out and following, you won't regret it. I for one am always really excited when I see a new post from Belle's Avenue pop up on my blogger dashboard, and am looking forward to seeing what other posts Emma will be bringing us in the future!

Dani recently posted about her favourite bloggers of the month, you can read it here.

Kat would like to nominate Alice from Bright Town Girl and Charl from Ginger Girl Says.

I think that's more than enough blogs for you to read, I hope you find a new favourite!
