TO THE CREATORS WHO INSPIRED ME THROUGHOUT 2020, THANK YOU.

26.2.21

The last time I was able to sit down and dedicate some time to writing a blog post, I shared some reasons why I was glad to see the back of this year and why I was so damn excited to see in the new year. But I found myself in the final week of 2020 reminiscing on the good things that came out of this wild year. 


The one thing that my mind kept returning to was the fact that last year gave me the opportunity to dedicate more time to my blog and creating content in general and what I achieved last year alone is certainly something to write home about. 

However, I really don't think I would've achieved half of goals if it wasn't for the fact that I was constantly inspired and in admiration for other creators online. Some of whom I'm now lucky to call friends and others who I'll forever be grateful to. 

I felt quite fortunate during lockdown to spend all my free time working on what I wanted to share online, being able to discover more creators and having the opportunity to connect with people who have similar interests has had such a positive impact on my mental health, having a space to share my creativity and a place to practically offload my word vomit with people who are so welcoming and excepting to it, really has made me feel like I've found my feet with this lil side hustle and ugh, I'm so so grateful for that. 
 

Mushy gratitude aside, I honestly don't think I would've been able to discover myself creatively if I didn't have the inspiring people popping up on my feed and in an attempt to say thank you, I wanted to share with y'all the creators who inspired me and hopefully you'll find some new favourites to follow who can inspire you too... 

JESS BACON. 
I don't think it's possible for me to explain how much I admire this girl and her work. Jess is one of the most dedicated gals online and honestly it really shows in everything she creates; from talking body confidence, to grief and mental health and even helping you find the positives in life. The way Jess continued to create content throughout last year really inspired and pushed me with my own, so trust me when I say you'll find something you love about Jess if you follow her, here.

KELLY PRINCE WRIGHT. 
If you're a fan of fun and magical content, Kelly is the gal for you! When I was struggling with my blogging back in 2019, I was so lost for inspiration and when I found Kelly's blog I felt ready to jump back into the blogging life. The way she writes is so relatable and relaxed, ya know? She's recently started sharing more content on IG that's magical edits and she's really challenged herself creatively and I love it so much. Kelly's instagram is here. 

EMILY PHILPOTT. 
I actually stumbled across Emily on youtube one evening and spent hours watching her videos, from the chatty videos, fashion posts and moving vlogs, I was immediately in love with the way she edits and creates her content...and for a full 24 hours I was convinced I was ready to attempt youtube. But when I realised I'm only good behind the camera, I quickly changed my mind. I've since followed Em's journey and I love to see her style on IG, how she's so empowering to others and generally creating an enjoyable community online - check it all out, here. 

LEAH HIGGINS 
We've been following each other for years, we live in the same town but it wasn't until 2020 where I truly felt our friendship really formed. Getting to know Leah and see the hard work she puts into her content is something that truly amazes me, her photography is so creative and so welcoming and oh if only I could create the things to the level she does - thank you for keeping me motivated to keep improving myself too! Follow Leah, here. 

SOPHIE MORT. 
Sophie shares the dreamiest photos! Her photography skills are out of this world tbh and she inspires me each and everyday. The thing I love most about Sophie is the fact I'm able to call her a friend, I can talk to her about anything from life to content creating & she's the most kind hearted soul. Keep being you Sophie, you're amazing! Ps. please give Soph a follow, here.


SOPHIA TRANTER. 
Not only is Sophia super supportive of what I create, which btw is very encouraging, so thank you my love! She's also one of those accounts I'll return to for constant inspiration - she creates the most beautiful makeup looks & has such a unique way of putting these together, but she also creates some gorge fashion content too, and I am here for it! Make sure you're following Sophia, here. 

LUKE HEYWOOD. 
Luke! Oh Luke you are amazing! Even if you aren't a creator looking for someone to follow to motivate you, you should 100% be following Luke - he creates such fun, creative and bold edits. Not only sharing the style he wears but also a challenging himself creatively and every time he just gets better and better. Luke is also the sweetest guy I've met online, he's so supportive of the people he follows and we all need more of that attitude in our lives. Follow Luke, here. 

SHANNON PURSEY. 
I fell in love with Shannons content last year and it's safe to say my opinions not changed...but now I feel so privileged to say we've gotten to know each other recently and it makes me so happy. From the cosy at home vibes she shares, gorgeous fashion content and fun edits on her photos - Shannons creativity amazes me, she's always making something I admire and I'm constantly inspired and motivated to create content to the same level! Shannon's account is here! 

Well, it's been a hot minute since I was able to find some time to write and share anything remotely interesting on my blog, so I hope you are all doing well! 

I'm challenging myself to bring my blog back over the next couple of weeks, even if it's only one post a month - I've missed writing and today's post has just reminded me of why I fell in love with blogging so much last year...so please bare with me while I find my direction again, but boy I can't wait to return to this corner of the internet. 

Let me know your fave creators?...
