My Favorite Blogs Edition 2 – A Model Recommends

Welcome to this second installment of my Favorite Blogs! I hope you enjoyed the last one, and had some time to check out Kate’s awesome blog!  For round two, I have another beauty blogger, but one with a totally different aesthetic.  Enjoy!

Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends

A Model Recommends is primarily a beauty blog with a hefty dose of lifestyle posts thrown in.  The real attraction of A Model Recommends is Ruth’s skilled writing style and fabulous sense of humor!  Of all the blogs I read, this is the one that most often has me laughing out loud… whatever your interest in beauty, I’m sure you will enjoy her posts.

Ruth Crilly, the blogger behind A Model Recommends, is a fashion model from the UK and began her blog after discovering her love of makeup during photo shoots and fashion shows.  When Ruth enrolled in college her intent was to practice law.  She began modeling for some part time income, and as her modeling career grew, found herself unable to walk away from the exciting opportunities she was being offered.

Ruth and her husband had an adorable baby girl a year ago, and in addition to some pretty hilarious posts, this has also inspired her second blog… the maternity and motherhood blog The Uphill.  I’m sure this would be an awesome read for moms with little ones!

A Model Recommends is worth a look… if nothing else, just for a good chuckle.  I do not, however, want to diminish the quality of the beauty content she shares.  Her recommendations are spot on and she goes to great lengths to properly research products to make sure her conclusions are accurate.  Great skincare and makeup tips!

Head on over and say Hi to Ruth, I know you will love her blog!

Kate Bryan from The Small Things Blog

I would hazard to guess that most of you have heard of Kate’s blog… or at the very least you have seen the back of her head on Pinterest!  For those of you who haven’t, you need to head over to her blog right away!

If asked to name my favorite blogger, I would have to give Kate the top spot!  She has a huge following, but still seems like the girl next door.  I love her relatable personality and dry sense of humor… her faith and family values make her uplifting to read and watch.

Kate began her career as a licensed hair stylist, developing her clientele in the Raleigh area.  She began looking for ways to teach her clients to style their hair at home, and decided to begin making YouTube videos for her clients to reference.  She posted them to Pinterest, and the rest is history!

Her hair tutorials are beautifully styled and easy to follow.  Not interested in hair tutorials?  No problem!  She offers useful, everyday information ranging from hair, beauty, fashion, recipes, parenting, blogging advice and she has two adorable little boys.

If you don’t know Kate, head on over and check out her site… in my book she’s truly an inspiring blogger!
