Everyone is asking the same question. How do I become popular as a blogger? What do they have that I don't? Well, sit back and read. Here are the answers! (P.s this is meant to be humorous, not insulting!)
1) A monthly subscription to a beauty box
Preferably, you need to be subscribed to all of them......glossybox, feel unique, joliebox, carmine....the list goes on. A subscription to these boxes give you something to write about once a month.
Unfortunately, someone has to be first, and everyone elses will be a copy review. It gets a little boring after the fifth read.
2) A love of Nandos or Wagamamas or Macaroons

|Cha Han and Chilli Squid - Wagamamas.|
|Macaroons - photo from http://www.thelondoner.me/.|
I'm quite a fan of the first two but sadly I've never ever had macaroons. At £10 a box, I just can't justify it!
So there are the places to do your "blogger spotting." They're the ones taking pictures of their food!
Which leads us to:
3) A Canon DSLR Camera

I love that when you type "ombre hair" into google images, the third image that comes up is this one of Lily Melrose! For the uninitiated, ombre hair is when your hair is lighter at the ends than at the roots. It should sort of fade downwards in colour. It's big in the blogging world. And so is big hair come to think of it!
6) An in-depth knowledge of html, the internet and photoshop
Er, I can't think of a picture for this one! You can survive with just a basic knowledge of the internet but sooner or later, you're going to have to watch some you tube videos and learn a bit more. Shabby blogs is a great (free) place to get some cute backgrounds and buttons and they have tutorials to show you how to use it all. I also downloaded a programme called Photoscape which is a free photo editor.
7) An account on every social network site available
