Top 5 Favorite Bloggers




Hi all! I feel like every time I write there's always a whirl wind of things going on. Life is crazy sometimes. Scratch that-- all of the time. Earlier this week, I had two interviews scheduled and a lot of my time was taken up with prep work and dealing with the aftermath of those interviews. "Aftermath??" you may be thinking. Yes, aftermath.

It was all very dramatic and my poor roommate had to listen to me very curtly argue with a difficult recruiter that attempted to convince me that "$12 an hour was a good salary". She was trying to take advantage of the wrong girl! I did all my research and knew exactly what was a fair market value salary for that position with my experience and the number was WAY more than the meager $12 an hour. I was actually able to take matters into my own hands and negotiate with the firm myself (instead of going through the agency) and to her surprise they were willing to raise the salary. Unfortunately, it was still not what I was looking for, so I had to turn down the offer. Moral of the story, do not use staffing agencies to find a job! Even if it's to supplement your own job hunt. They only have their bottom line in mind and will say whatever they can to devalue your worth and experience. Lesson learned!

As a result, I've honestly been feeling a little uninspired and stressed (to say the least). I've definitely been lagging in the blogging department lately. I did have a 'Yinzerita' for the first time last night to celebrate my victory over the agency and my strong conviction to stick to up for myself in the face of the mean 'real world'. I'm getting off topic. Oops!

But as a result of my lack of inspiration, today's post is going to be about my top 5 favorite bloggers to go to for inspiration. Ladies who I can visit this blog and have 15 new ideas bustling around my head in no time flat! I've come across all of these bloggers through different Facebook groups and immediately become obsessed! I hope you find as much inspiration and enjoyment from them as I do!

I've been following this lovely lady on Instagram for a while now, and her makeup photos are always so stunning! Putting on makeup is one of my favorite things to do. I like to think I have my routine down pretty well, but her makeup is phenomenal! Her pictures are so inspiring. I want to immediately run to my makeup bag and start experimenting. Her blog is just as inspiring, too!
I've only recently been introduced to this blogger, but her style is right up my alley. Very clean cut and always so adorable! Her every day style matches right up with my own. I'm allll about that shirt dress! And how adorable are those sandals?!
Coffee with Summer is one of those blogs I can visit for really anything. I love all of her posts about blogging. I've been blogging for two years now, but I feel like there are so many aspects I still have to learn about. Summer always has helpful tips. I know what I'm reading is quality information that will help me tackle whatever aspect of blogging I'm tying to figure out. And don't even get me started on her 'wedding' posts! The flower accents on her chairs and the darling 'find the key to your seat' idea?!? Wow. I'm tryna get married just to have a wedding as amazing as hers! 



This amazing blogger brings tips and inspiration about how to survive as a Millennial, because, lets be honest, we could all use as much advise to help us navigate the 'real world'. My favorite series she does is her "Inspiring Millennial Series". I first watched this series when it featured Stephanie O'Connell and was hooked!  Stephanie is an actress turned financial blogger living in NYC. During this episode, they talked a lot about what it was like for Stephanie to go from being a broke actress in NYC to writing her own book, "The Broke and Beautiful Life, and becoming a kick-ass entrepreneur! I love how honest and insightful all of Rachel's posts are. They seriously give me so much to think about and ways to improve my own life! 10/10. Hands down!




Twenties Girl Style
If you want a look into what future, financially stable Rachel will look like once she gets a full-time job, her wardrobe and blog will look pretty similar to Ashley's! All of her pieces are exactly what I would purchase if my wallet loved me. Every time I visit her page I have to immediately fight the urge to start online shopping. It's truly a terrible urge to fight. If you want to know the latest, affordable trends and spot on ways to style outfits, visit her page! 




This is by far not a comprehensive list of all the blogs I'm currently obsessing over. Lets be honest, there are just so many and I spend an obnoxious amount of time reading blogs and obsessing over bloggers that this list would stretch for MILES if I included everyone. So let me know who your favorite bloggers are in the comment below! Until next time.





xoxo,
