I’ve been asked a few times recently who inspires me – and while it is often tempting to look at this question in a broader spectrum and choose my top inspirations from a historical standpoint, I’ve decided to be realistic and reveal some of the top bloggers who inspire me at the moment.
As I travel full time I rarely get the chance to read many blogs, so I’ve restricted myself to a “top 5 people who inspire me” list. I also think this is a good time to mention that the best way to keep up to date with your favourite blogs is on Bloglovin’ – my lifesaver due to my busy schedule!
So here’s who is inspiring me right at this minute! (Please feel free to link your own blog in the comments section below and I will check them all out for the next ‘who inspires me’ post!!).
Bloggers who Inspire a Travel Blogger
Sjana from SMYLE
Sjana is one of the exceptional human beings that is just as beautiful on the inside as she is from the outside. This self-taught yogi and all-round lover of life is bound to make you wear a smile as big as hers when you start following along her journey. I follow Sjana’s instagram and keep up with her escapades daily – not only does she inspire me in a meaningful sense but she also inspires me to get outside and get active! I’m always envious of her flexi long legs extending from one side of an instagram frame through to the other – but that envy soon turns into admiration and adoration, because Sjana is one of the loveliest humans you will find showcasing her life on the internet.
Sound of Chic by Jess
Jess is one of my travel-related inspirations and I love finding gems like her on the interwebs as a source of inspiration for future trips and destinations. Just take one look at her homepage on Sound of Chic and you will instantly feel inspired, too. I can’t wait to see where her journey takes her next – make sure you’re following along too – this is one to watch! She runs not one but two successful travel websites, www.theguamguide.com and www.soundofchic.com.
Essena by Essena O’neil
For a 17 year old, Essena has wisdom and sensibility beyond her years. I’ve been following Essena for a while now and still find myself pondering around her website as an endless source of inspiration for everything mind, body, and soul related. She has even (almost) convinced me to go back to veganism! I’m just more likely to commit when I settle in the one city for longer than a few days! Essena is exactly what is needed in the social media digital age – a source of encouragement for young girls around the world. I’m pretty sure she’s the teenager every parent wants to have and every teenager wants to be like!
Jaharn has been one of my favourite bloggers from the very beginning. Raw, unique, and an incredibly beautiful soul – I absolutely love following her escapades around the world. Recently she has been showing off New Zealand and more of Australia, making me miss home even more! This is one of my favourite travel blogs that takes up a little more of my time as her posts are incredibly well written, so once you start reading – you can’t stop! Definitely take a look and I’m sure you will feel the same.
My London Lifestyle
Last but by all means nowhere near least, Emma Bates is my best blogger friend from the internet world. I don’t meet too many people through blogging as I’m so busy this year – but I did meet Emma in Paris earlier this year and we instantly clicked. What do I love about her blog? She EATS. A girl who eats and looks as damn good as her is definitely reason enough to follow her journey. Emma has the ultimate lifestyle/living thing down, she eats healthy, exercises, works hard to play hard, travels often, ahhh…. yep, I’m immensly inspired by Emma.
