Blog posts I loved - March

So I have actually managed to find some time to read blogs this month so this post may be a little longer than usual however I didn't think you guys would mind so without further ado lets get on with it.
The Step by Step Flatlay - The Makeup Directory

I wish there was a post like this when I first started my instagram, and even though I would say I'm okay at flatlaying I definitely picked up some tricks I am going to give a go.
The Lowdown on the latest lip releases - Ellis Tuesday

I love anything lip related as you probably all know so this post was right up my street. I love reading these quick summary reviews and they are written so well with just enough information.
Google Analytics for Bloggers the basics -  Beauty and the bird

I am horrible when it comes to any sort of analytics, it goes straight over my head so I loved this post as it told me all of the basic things I need to know. Since initially reading I have gone back to this post a couple more times and I really think it is beginning to get a little easier.
The Ultimate triple chocolate cookie - Lucyy Writes

I feel like a baking post always seems to slip into these roundup posts but I mean if you have a look at this recipe they look absolutely insane I am always going to shout about any recipe that involves three chocolates.
The A-Z of my favourite beauty products - Beautylymin

I really like the idea for this post and I'm actually currently working on putting together my own A-Z but am struggling with Q,X and Y. Answers on a postcard (or in the comments) please.
The Best liquid lipstick I've ever tried - Made from Beauty

The photography in this is absolutely flawless and it has made me want to try one of the Sephora lip stains even more than I did before.
The Five things you need to begin bullet journaling - Lorna Literally

If you follow me on instagram you will know I have just started bullet journaling so I am currently reading a lot of posts about it. I love how simple this one is set out and I am definitely thinking of making mine a little more straight forward after seeing this.
Unrealistic expectations - The Makeup artists choice

This post was just so true and I love to see Bloggers being unapologetically like screw beauty standards. I also think the various level of editing on the photos added beautifully to the point.
Revenge body, My story - The Crime of fashion

All I wanted to do while reading through this was scream hell yes girl you are killing it. It is so nice for a change to see people talking positively about there body image and it just makes me so happy.
The Problem with scientists on TV - Water painted dreams

Considering I'm off to do Forensic biology at uni next year I can relate to this on so many levels. So many people I meet can't get over the fact that I wear coloured makeup and funky liner and be into science and I think TV is the reason why. We science people can be fun too.
How to get free stuff for your blog - Colours and Carousels

I love a good click bait title and I loved the reasoning behind this post. So many people seem to think bloggers get things handed to them on a plate however we work hard and I love the fact we now feel confident enough to tell everyone we do.

Low Maintenance lip options - L Page beauty

I love a good liquid lip that requires a bit of maintenance but then I do also love a throw on and go lip. There are some beautiful formulas picked out here and as usual I love the photography.

Three things to do when you receive negative feedback - A Girl, Obsessed

Although I haven't had a lot of negative feedback in my time blogging I've had a little bit and it is incredibly hard to push past it and  love these three little steps and I think they are something that should be handed out to anyone who starts a blog.

How to create an effective content calendar - Microscope beauty

If you know me in real life you would know that I love a good organisation session, but something I've never been happy with is the way I organise my blog content. I am actually going to give the google calendar a go and I will update you all if I end up loving it.

Instagram, the hashtags you should and shouldn't be using - That's Peachy

Instagram is hard work at the moment and I think this would be a fab post for any newbies to the platform to read as it is difficult to know which hashtags to use and it is awfully tempting to use ones such as like for like and follow for follow.

Being on youtube....I've got opinions - The Clare necessities

Finally for todays massive post is a post from Clare about a short programme she watched about blogging. I 100% agree with all her opinions here and once again believe it's about time people realised that blogging and youtubing isn't as easy as it may seem.

So that's it for today I hope you enjoy all these fab posts!
