5 blogs you should read

If you like writing that’s full of authenticity then here are 5 blogs you should read. No matter what these bloggers write about they come across as true to themselves. Their content never feels forced, even if press samples are being featured.

In the ever expanding world of blogging (particularly beauty blogging) people who write because they genuinely love it are always a breath of fresh air. That’s why I look forward to seeing these blogs appear in my Bloglovin’ feed.

1. Behind Green Eyes

Behind Green Eyes

Behind Green Eyes is a no-nonsense lifestyle, book and beauty blog. It is full of reviews that aren’t afraid to tell it like it is regardless of whether she loves a product or thinks it isn’t worth the money.

Sharon has a way with words that cuts through the PR bumf surrounding so many products, which is always welcome in the blogging world, and her monthly book round ups always lead to my own to-read list growing in number.

Superlatively Rude

I came across Superlatively Rude last year and spent hours devouring the entire blog.
