Blogger Of The Month - Emma from Miss Emma Charlotte

This month I've picked Emma from Miss Emma Charlotte as my Blogger Of The Month. After meeting her earlier on in April at the Playboy Makeup Launch, I knew that I'd be featuring her in this post. She was such a lovely person to meet, which made me being the second blogger to arrive at the event a lot more comfortable. Plus, it's always nice when you meet the face behind the blog.

We got straight into conversation about shopping in London and then onto the products which were on show at the beautiful event. She mentioned that she was quite new to blogging and had just bought a new camera to get some good snaps of all the products. Immediately I realised that a camera would have been handy and my iPhone was going to have to suffice. Ooops!

I checked out her blog when I got home that evening and was instantly drawn to how clean it looks. As you all know, I'm really interested in blogs that look beautiful and are easy to read. Emma's is just that. The simple white and black design make it very easy on the eye. You can really concentrate on what you're reading, rather than being distracted elsewhere.

I generally like similar things about each blog so I've picked out a few to illustrate what I like best.

The first post I picked obviously had to be her review of the Playboy Makeup Launch. FYI, head over to her blog for a great insight into the products and some much better pictures of the event!

I love how she gives you information on her outfit in the post. I remember wishing I could have dressed up as I stood there in my jeggings and boots, whilst everyone else was in dresses. Unfortunately I was travelling to London from Birmingham and spending the whole day there, so it wouldn't have been practical to totter up and down Oxford Street in my dress and heels. Needless to say I still got outfit envy.

I love how clean and crisp the photos are in this post. She gives you an in-depth insight into the event and really makes you feel like you were there. The added detail about how we were all chowing down on duck spring rolls really made me giggle too.

The next post I particularly like is this one on the  Dove Hair Therapy Damage Solutions Intensive Repair Self Warming Mask. Having never heard of this product before, I loved to read her experiences on it. One of the best things about reading great blogs is when they introduce you to a product that you'll end up using for years. If Emma's experience is anything to go by, I certainly want to get my hands on this product. I'm constantly on the look out for products that are going to make my hair glossy and hydrated, and this sounds like it'll do just the trick.

Finally, I was introduced to DHJ Organics haircare range through her blog. The Argan Oil Shampoo, Conditioner and Oil really peaked my interest after she mentioned that Daniel Galvin Junior, the man who created the DGJ brand has a glossy list of clients including the likes of Amanda Holden and Kelly Brook. This would be a good time to note that I like how she gives you a background on brands that you might not have heard of before. I always like to get to know a company before I try out their products so I can get a feel of what they are about. Being able to get all of this and a personal review in one place is what makes Emma's blog so great.

I was interested in how she got on as she said that the shampoo didn't lather but her hair still felt clean. Usually my hair freaks out as soon as I try to wash it with sulphate-free shampoo as it tends to get in a real knot. But she noted that her hair felt nourished and frizz free after using it. I know that her opinion is one I can trust and this makes me excited that I might have found a chemical free product that could give me the results I'm looking for.

Over all I'm really enjoying keeping up to date with Emma's posts. She's been blogging for around 3 months and her posts just keep getting better and better. I love finding blogs at the beginning of their life as I like to read them from the beginning and watch their journey. It's still very special to me that people who read my blog at the beginning are still in contact with now. I feel like they've gone through the blogging journey with me and that's what I'd like to have with Emma's blog.

Definitely go and check her out if you've not read her blog before. It's the perfect blend of launch posts, reviews, OOTD's and even some health and yummy ice cream posts thrown in for good measure. Now who doesn't want to read about that, really?!
