Team LBD proudly presents the July instalment of the LBD Blogger Awards.

Each month we’ll be showcasing the top ten bloggers that we’ve fallen in love with, for all sorts of reasons! These prestigious blogs will range from our favourite daily reads to bloggers we have enjoyed working with, those we want to be and those nominated for their sheer uniqueness. So there you have it, read on for the best blogs you should be coveting. This month, Little Black Dress’s prestigious Blogger Awards go to…

LBD Blogger Awards The London Lipstick

WHAT: Beauty, Fashion and Music WHY: Seriously cool blog The London Lipgloss fixates on music and its points of contact with beauty and fashion. The result is a unique, up-and-coming blog that entices you to pull your chair in closer towards the computer screen, sit up and take note. Our personal highlights include the interview with Aluna Francis from music duo AlunaGeorge and the VIP review of Parklife Music Festival. With posts like this we’re excited to see what the future will hold for The London Lipgloss creator, 23 year old Zoe.

LBD Blogger Awards Cocktails and Caroline

WHAT: Lifestyle and Food WHY: Experience the Big Smoke through the eyes of cosmopolitan Caroline, who guides us through the social landscape of eating out, nightlife and travel in the city of London. We simply can't get enough of the delicious recipes and foodie photographs Caroline (professional baker by day, blogger by night) shares with us, making this the perfect online destination to tantalise your taste buds.

 LBD Blogger Awards Fashion Stylistka

WHAT: Style WHY: A self-confessed shopaholic hailing from Dublin offers us a peek into her ‘I-need-that-in-my-life’ wardrobe.

LBD Blogger Awards Facehunter

 LBD Blogger Awards Travel Write Draw

WHAT: Art WHY: We love how this New York based blogger’s punchy, striking illustrations brighten up our day, as she shares with us her personal and, quite frankly, unique glimpse in to the fashion world in a fresh and exciting way. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this designer and illustrator certainly has an awful lot to say… WHERE: travelwritedraw.blogspot.co.uk   If you run a blog that you think we’ll love, or know someone who does then drop our assistant editor an e-mail at [email protected] and nominate it now!
