The 2012 Favourites: Bloggers, Vloggers, and Generally Awesome People

Props to me for coming up with the longest name ever for this post, but it felt right. This blog would not be as fun to write if it was the only blog out there, or without you. I'm not going to get all mushy on ya (not too much anyway) but I really do mean it. Hello October would not be the same without your support, comments and tweets, without the support of the other amazing people I've met through it, or without the support from old friends who have been with me pre-Hello October. In short, you're all wonderful and thank you for an amazing year.

I've split my favourites into four catagories this year, the usual suspects being Bloggers and Vloggers (some do double up) with my favourite Beauty Reads and Tumblrs thrown in. A special shout out to a few of the girls from the Tumblr list needs to be done as well, in return for their support, friendship, inspiration, or just general lovelyness - they are marked with an *. Soppy outburst is now OVER. Let's get on with this...

A Little Beauty Vlog | Beautycrush | Essiebutton | Ghostparties | I Covet Thee | Tanya Burr | Vivianna Does Makeup | What I Heart Today | Zoella

So I'm guessing I've just sorted your afternoons out for you, hopefully you'll find some new blogs in there that you haven't come across before. I do follow a fair few more blogs than this, but if I mentioned everyone this post would be even longer than it already is, and if I did that then I would also want to give all of my regular readers/commenters a shout out too, and then this post would probably be bigger than I am and we can't have that.

Let me know if you have any favourites that I haven't mentioned. I love reading, whether it's a book, magazine or blog, so definitely let me know if there's something out there I'm missing!
