First Friday Favorites

January 5, 2018 4 Comments

It’s the first Friday of 2018! When I’m not blogging I also like to follow my favorite influencers!! You don’t realize it, but the people you follow on the internet, have an impact on your life. That’s why I like to make sure that I’m keeping up with those people that inspire me to do better in my own life. I’ve put together my favorite list of bloggers, ‘First Friday Favorites’, that I look up to and admire!! If you are looking for new influencers to follow in 2018, I recommend these jewels! 🙂

The Ginger Marie Blog by Ginger Harper

Award: Funniest Blogger / Best Bites

Why you need to follow her: If its not the instastories that keep  you coming, it will definitely be the food posts!! I follow Ginger because she is funny and if you meet her in person, she is just the same as her online presence! She also has the best food advice! She posts everything from healthy food recipes to cheat meals and I love it!

Helene in Between by Helene Sula

Award: Best Travel Guides

Why you need to follow her: She knows the best places to visit in Europe! Helene is the only blogger on this list that I’ve never met in person. However, I feel like I know her LOL She is a Dallasite that recently moved to Germany with her husband to be a full time travel blogger. Even though she just moved, you’ll feel like she’s been travel blogging for YEARS! Next time you have a Europe trip, make sure to follow Helene!

Own by Femme by René Daniella

Award: Most Inspiring Blogger

Why you need to follow her: She is a beautiful human! 🙂 No but really, isn’t she gorgeous?!?! She also has the best personality. If her style and beautiful curls don’t hook you- her British accent will! I met René on her ‘Travel, Love, Grow’ tour that came through Dallas. René travels the world and calls ‘the journey’ her home. Everytime you visit her page, she’s probably in a new city! I wanna be like René!!
