Blog Love & A Little Giveaway

I love reading and discovering new blogs, I feel like I've hit the jackpot when I find a real good'un to waste away an afternoon catching up on this strangers life (and more commonly; their beauty habbits).
I thought I would share a few blogs I've followed in the past few months, they're all green beauty blogs too, which makes me happy! There were quite a lot of blogs I wanted to share with you all but will save the rest for a part 2 ;)

Bow Tied Beauty - Run by the lovely Tania, Bow Ties Beauty is one of my newer blog discoveries and I'm hooked, the perfect photography and well thought out, well written posts have won me over.

Beauty By Britanie - Britanie is a green makeup artist and her blog is forever making me lust after all the beautiful organic makeup, it doesn't help that she is also stunning, ugh!

No More Dirty Looks  - Part blog, part magazine?! NMDL is the place for green beauty lovers and I love their weekly posts where readers submit their routines, I love a good nosey into peoples beauty routines! Their articles are also really insightful and the readers get involved in the comments making for a good read!

Call It Vanity - A lovely little blog run by two lovely ladies, Sabrina and Mayah! I love their honest writing style and love seeing a new post from them pop up in my bloglovin feed!

True Beauty By Nature - Audriena's blog is the best place to find swatches for organic makeup, her stash of ilia and rms products makes me sooo jealous! With plenty of clear photos and straight to the point reviews there's nothing to not like.

Seed to Serum - Megan's blog is definitely my blog of choice for discovering new organic brands, she always reviews new and exciting brands that I'd love to get my hands on (and usually can't because they're not available in the UK) or highlights them with her 'on my radar' series.

I also thought it would be nice to run a little giveaway for christmas! as I don't have anything physical to giveaway at the moment (I'm saving that for my next big blog milestone!) I thought I would offer up some free advertising on my blog sidebar, if you look to the left there is a little sponsor section where all my paid-for ads are hosted and I've decided to giveaway 3 small spots (100x250px) to 3 readers of my blog. Hopefully this continues nicely with my little sharing the love post and we can all discover some new blogs to read too!
