Here are some of my favourite blogs out there in the blogosphere, all written by some fabulous fellow Travelistas. Each blog has it’s own unique angle and they all inspire me and entertain me in different ways. I love reading them just as much as I love writing my own – well – almost. I read them all on a regular basis and if you like The Travelista, you might like these too!
Favourite Travel Bloggers
First and foremost comes Mrs O! Her blog is my all time favourite luxury travel blog and was one of the biggest inspirations that lead me to set up The Travelista. One thing I love about Mrs O’s blog is that as well as blogging about her luxurious trips to places like Mexico and the Maldives, she also blogs about her outings in the UK. Born in Lisbon and now residing with her English hubby in the country, Mrs O is the definition of a successful cosmopolitan Travelista!
Mrs Ayla Adventures
Having grown up in a family of holiday-goers and travel-fanatics, the desire to explore has been ingrained in Ayla since birth. When she’s not researching, talking, dreaming or bugging her husband about distant shores, you’ll either find her with my head in a book or at the cinema. I had the pleasure of meeting Ayla at the lowcostholidays Blogger Awards, where she won ‘Best Female’.
The Well Travelled Post Card
Virginia Stuart-Taylor is a travel blogger based in London, who writes about her adventures abroad and top tips for living abroad on her blog The Well-Travelled Postcard. Incredibly, Virginia can speak Spanish, Italian and Portuguese and has so far lived in Chile, Spain and Italy. Since creating her blog in summer 2012 it’s given her the opportunity to travel to four different continents. I met Virginia at BlogStock 2014 and loved hearing all about her colourful travels and time abroad.
Shortlisted for “Best Female” in the lowcostholidays Blogger Awards 2014, and featured in Company Magazine’s High-Street Edit as a favourite blogger, Taylor Hearts Travel is a stylish travel blog to inspire amazing travel; from ideas for epic bucket list ticks to suggestions for local weekend trips. Char was the first fellow blogger friend I met last year at World Travel Market.
40 Before 30 / Girl Tweets World
I first discovered Jayne’s amazing talent for blogging when we were both shortlisted in the 2013 Cosmo Blog Awards. Jayne was the well deserved winner of our ‘Best Travel Category’ and was hugely inspiring to meet. Jayne has recently relaunched as Girl Tweets World in August 2013 after completing her challenge of visiting 40 countries before she was 30 (the concept behind her first blog). Girl Tweets World brings together her travel experience with that of her profession as a freelance blogger and social media manager.
Around The World in 80 Pairs of Shoes
The lovely Kelly is a Kiwi that has moved to London in search of finding the perfect Afternoon tea! (Well OK, she moved for plenty of other worth while reasons too) but travel and afternoon tea are her two big passions. She spends her weekends exploring the capital in search of the perfect afternoon tea or is jetting off on long weekends to explore Europe. She is also gluten free which puts an interesting spin on her foodie and travel pursuits!
The Travel Hack is a stylish adventure blog which is all about the amazing travels of Monica Stott. Monica used to juggle her blog alongside a full time job in digital content but in the past year she has taken the leap into freelance travel blogger, which is a huge inspiration for many fellow travel bloggers. I love her blog as she posts a great combination of travel pieces and lifestyle pieces giving an insight into her life as a travel blogger. She writes honest and witty posts that keep me coming back for more.
Favourite Lifestyle, Foodie & Fashion Bloggers
For most blog lovers, Rosie needs little introduction. She runs the most successful lifestyle blog in the UK, and is headed for world domination! What makes her blog so special is the way she bottles up that magic London lifestyle that most people can only dream of having, animated by the most fabulous photography. I love her writing style, wit and amazing tips – not to mention she’s bloomin’ gorgeous. She blogs about everything from luxurious travel jaunts to Anti diets, from ‘slutty brownies’ to the best parties in the capital and has her readers (including me) hanging from her every word.
I first discovered Em Sheldon’s blog through Instagram. Em’s little corner of the internet is a deliciously gorgeous lifestyle blog that covers everything from Fake Tan to Fitness and Fashion to Travel. It’s a snapshot into Em’s world and makes for addictive reading!. Em is a fellow Yorkshire lass who I would love to meet one day.
Hannah Leigh is an amazing You Tube Vlogger that I met at the Cosmo Blog Awards 2013. Her Vlogs are totally fascinating, funny and endearing and cover all things fashion and beauty. Hannah is so natural in front of the camera and has a really striking look, so it’s no wonder her videos rack up thousands of views in just a few days. Hannah is also a Yorkshire lass from Sheffield and is shortlisted to win Best Vlogger in the 2014 Cosmo Blog Awards. Vote for her!
Nic’s incredible Nutrition blog is my first port of call for foodie and fitness inspiration. She blogs, she vlogs, and works as a nutritionist too. Along with creating endless nutritious recipes for her followers , Nic provides positive inspiration on how to maintain a healthy and wholesome lifestyle.
The Part Time Vegan
Sophie recently created The Part Time Vegan food blog as she discovered the positive impact that vegan and gluten-free cooking had on her body and her health. Sophie blogs about her incredibly creative creations, many of which are totally gluten (and guilt!) free. I always look to her blog for inspiration on deliciously healthy dishes and t0-die-for #foodporn photography!
