Without a doubt the greatest thing to come out of 2016 for me is Midnight and Lace. It's crazy to think that this time last year my lil home here was just an idea. I feel like I've been blogging for so much longer and that is down to the fantastic blogging community I've become a part of this year. I have had the opportunity to talk to and meet some wonderful bloggers that I've decided to showcase the blogs and bloggers that have made my year.

Jessica (Heart Shaped Bones)
Of course this post was going to include Jessica, I think my love for Jessica and her blog is pretty obvious! I first met her at the Bloggers Blog Awards in October and although it was pretty brief I knew that this was a girl after my own heart. It was her style that drew me to her and I after going home and stalking her blog I knew that this was a blogger that I wanted to be friends with and a blog that I admire so much! Heart Shaped Bones is my main blogging inspiration and I always enjoy reading her content, her blog is just absolute perfection and I aspire to have a blog as incredible as hers. I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to talk so much to Jessica and I was honoured that she asked me to write an article for The Blogging Grotto. I cannot wait to meet up with Jessica sometime in 2017!

Amy (Salt and Chic)
Amy was one of the reasons I got into blogging in the first place. I discovered her blog one day after finding her on Twitter. I instantly fell in love with her content and her look. The thing I love the most about Amy is that she is such a lovely and kind person and I admire her so much. She puts so much work and effort into her blog and balances this with her job and other life commitments. I also met Amy this year at the Bloggers Blog Awards and it’s safe to say- I fangirled! I love keeping up to date with Amy on all of her platforms and her snapchats are some of my favourite! I love all of Amy’s content and can’t wait to see what she has in store for 2017. 

Jemma (Dorkface)
Awwh who doesn’t love Jemma?! She has the kindest and gentlest soul I’ve ever met. She is just like the mummy of the blogging family. I met Jemma in October and she was so kind and made me feel so at ease whilst I was freaking out- she also gives pretty incredible hugs. I love reading Jemma’s content and her blog will never not make me smile. I love how open and honest Jemma is on her blog and her photography skills are next level! I cannot wait to keep reading all the amazing content she has and to hopefully meet up with her again!

Beth (What She Did)
Beth’s blog was one of the fantastic blogs I discovered this year. I love everything she posts and her makeup skills are inspirational. My favourite thing that Beth has done this year was her Halloween inspired makeup looks which she did every day of October! Being a Halloween fan I fell in love with the idea and the looks she created- it was definitely one of my highlights of Halloween. Beth continues to create fantastic looks that leave me wanting to learn and improve upon my own makeup skills! She is definitely one of the bloggers to watch for 2017 and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
