I don't know about you guys but my normal week involves a lot of blog
stalking meandering. I stumble across some beauties every now and then. I know we all have our favourite blogs and a lot of the time our favourites are huge with massive amounts of followers, beautiful pictures, amazing writing an above all a to-die-for style. But every so often I stumble across blogs where my first thought is wow. Some blogs just blow me away with the layout, the imagery, everything just works and I'm always completely confused as to why these bloggers aren't on the front pages of Vogue and having girls scream their names from rooftops. So in the spirit of my confusion I thought I'd do a little 'Blogs you May Not Know But Really Should...' post. So sit back, relax and enjoy some amazing, talented ladies (and man).
Ok, so I may be just a little biased here because I've personally known Mel for a while now and have come to love her like a friend. But before I actually met her I remember being completely blown away by how outstanding the text that accompanies her images are. It's not often you stumble across bloggers who really make an effort not just with images but with what they have to say too. You can tell every article as an opinion, is researched, is well written and has been thoroughly checked for spelling and grammar. Watch this girl because she will be huge one day.
The 'model slash blogger' is not an uncommon term in our world and there are plenty of them out there. But what makes Ally stand out from the crowd for me, apart from her amazing cheek bones and impeccable taste in vintage, is her attention to detail when it comes to her blog layout. Whenever I take a stroll through 'Unknown Pleasures' everything is just so damn pleasing to the eye from the incredibly neat and ordered general layout, to the finer details like font, colours and even sizing of the text. Everything is perfect. Really the gorgeous photography is just the cherry on a very delicious cake.
Take a quick visit to Mint Maison, do it right now....Seen it? Now take in account that Nusardel, the owner and writer of Mint Maison, is only fourteen. Now take a second visit. When I was fourteen I was far more concerned with what colour Raben's I was going to wear to school than the SEO ranking of my blog. I cannot even fathom how far this kid will go with the amazing kick start he's already giving himself. Shooting a campaign with Zippora and Mossman Clothing? Done. Media pass for Fashion Weekend? Done. Total world domination? We'll see.
Again, I could be biased with this one since I love this girl to death and spent a whole weekend bunking with her for LMFF. But seriously! I could spend my entire life attempting to achieve the 'all-natural-cool' that April oozes out of every pore and never get there. She's just one of those girls that makes everything look amazing and I could spend hours drooling over her enviable wardrobe. Not to mention the fact that she somehow manages to make you feel like her best friend just by reading her posts. If you haven't visited her blog yet than clearly you've been living under a rock. The Next Big Thing right here people.
