Baobella

A few weeks ago I started hearing about a new website called Baobella. It didn't really impinge on my consciousness much until I started looking into it and found out what it's all about. It's essentially a social network dedicated to beauty (I know you're already hooked) where you can share your photography and inspiration. It was officially launched on Friday and I'm already well and truly addicted! It's a great way to show off your makeup looks and product swatches and is useful for driving traffic to your blog.


It's incredibly easy to navigate and everything has been linked up so that you can add all of your social networks and blog to your Baobella profile. There are sections for your favourite products and posts so you always have a place to grab some beauty inspiration and keep your wishlist up to date! 

Here are my favourite posts which I've "loved" by some of the best bloggers around:

Coco of The Beauty Milk - here   Kat of Tales of a Pale Face - here   LaaLaa of Dolce Vanity - here
Miranda and Mackenzie from Pretty Squared - here

I love making all the collages and I've uploaded something every day since I joined. Yesterday I even put in an entry for the competition that Baobella are currently running for bloggers! It took me a while to decide what sort of look I wanted to go for but in the end I chose something quite natural with some light bronzing and I'm thrilled with how it turned out! Click here to find out more about the competition (and pop in an entry!) The prizes include a 6 week professional make up training course, personal shopping at MAC and luxury afternoon tea with the Baobella team. There's also a runner up prize of a £150 voucher to spend at UK department stores.

You can find my profile here and I'd love to get your links too! Below is my competition entry and of course I'd love some feedback and maybe even a few cheeky "love"s here.


I hope I see you on Baobella soon and if you have any questions the Baobella team are really helpful and active on Twitter @Baobella.

  5. I swear I'm 22 going on 80, I signed up for Baobella a while back and I've not got the hang of it yet! I'm so social-media impaired. Glad you've been having such a great time with it, I've been following you on there (I think/hope, I should be... gosh I sound ancient!) and I really love the look you put up. :)

    1. you don't have to be sorry :) how boring would life be if we all agreed ;) :) I'm glad you like the post though :) I just think it's a great place to throw up fotds and swatches. I find myself getting really inspired by some posts, I guess it's kind of like a more indepth version of pinterest? Though I don't know a ton about it since I never really got into pinterest haha :P xxx
