Lena is one of those great bloggers who knows how to mix her reviews, giveaways, and fashion posts in with the real hard-hitting posts about her family and their struggles and triumphs. I don't know how she balances it out so well, but she's a PRO at it! Not to mention I LOVE her fashion choices. She can take any combination of outfits and really make them work-even hotdogs on her dresses!

Nykki is such a sweetheart. She continually tries to help others by sharing her knowledge of beauty products, style options, nail polish tricks, and by just being genuinely supportive of other bloggers. In the short while I've been reading her blog I've learned tons of new tips and tricks, and I've seen a girl with a smile that lights up the room and a lot of love in her heart! She is such a peach!

Rachel is an adorable new find from the UK, and yes, that is a picture of her next to Chris Helmsworth on the set of Thor 2 in Greenwich-she leads an exciting life! She does a lot of travel and takes some fun pictures, as well as writes some pretty great posts talking about her favorite chocolates, beauty products and more! She's completely awesome, and I'm happy to have recently found her blog!

Casey is one of my favorite new blog finds. Not only is this girl super gorgeous (check out that hair-I'm so jealous!) but she is also extremely talented and her blog is such a great one to follow! She's so sweet and she's always off on some kind of adventure getting really great photographs of it all to share with you!
