Happy St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate Ireland’s most famous holiday, why not get acquainted with some of the country’s best fashion and beauty bloggers? (Feel free to enjoy your first green beer of the day while you’re at it.)
The following are 7 of the coolest women blogging in the Emerald Isle today:
Joanne Larby, The Makeup Fairy
Joanne’s resume is insane: she’s a plus-size model, a makeup artist, a stylist, and a style and beauty blogger. If that wasn’t enough, Joanne is also gearing up to release her first book, a memoir/lifestyle guide called Fairy Tales. While you’re waiting for her book to be released, check out Joanne’s blog, The Makeup Fairy. A good post to get you started? This one, in which Joanne reviews her favorite Irish-made beauty products.
Alex Quinn and Becky Johnston, Pink Elephant Blog
Alex and Becky describe themselves as “beauty enthusiasts, style seekers, and foodies.” If you are any of those things too, you’re bound to love their blog, The Pink Elephant. Alex and Becky are famous for their beauty product reviews, gift guides, recipes, and travel diaries. Oh, and their photography is stunning, too (smoothie ingredients have never looked this pretty). A great place to get started on the Pink Elephant? This review of one of their favorite Dublin restaurants, 37 Dawson St.

Lorna Claire Weightman, Style Isle
Based in both Dublin and London, Lorna is a fashion journalist, commentator, and blogger behind Style Isle. Some of her recent posts have included her style choices for London Fashion Week, an #OOTD photoshoot in Dublin, and a Q&A with Connie Nam, the founder of jewelry label Astrid & Miyu. One of the things I like the most about Lorna’s blog, however, is how honest and open she is about her struggles with adult acne. Oh, and I love her St. Patrick’s Day ‘gram of a cute potted shamrock plant.

Leanne Woodfull, Thunder & Threads
Leanne has to be the coolest person blogging in Ireland today. She’s a Dublin-based YouTuber, blogger, and full-time student at the National College of Art & Design. You’ll love the eye-catching graphics on her website, Thunder & Threads, and her ’90s-cool-girl meets 2016-punk style. Aside from style and beauty, Leanne has also blogged extensively about her experience undergoing double jaw surgery. A great place to get started on Thunder & Threads is this post about Leanne’s adventures at London Fashion Week.

Suzanne Jackson, So Sue Me
Suzanne is probably the most famous fashion and beauty blogger in Ireland today (look to her 174 thousand Instagram followers for proof). She started her blog, So Sue Me, in 2010, and she hasn’t looked back since. Aside from style and beauty, Suzanne also writes about fitness and traveling (I love her travel bucket list posts in particular). A great place to get started on So Sue Me? This post, in which Suzanne shares some of her favorite beauty product dupes. Check out her round-up of St. Patrick’s Day sales when you’re done!

Rebecca O’Byrne, Haute So Fabulous
If you like your style blogs to come with a heavy dose of glamour and gorgeous photographs, then you need to acquaint yourself with Rebecca of Haute So Fabulous. The Dublin-based blogger writes about all things chic: her wardrobe, her travels, and her favorite beauty treatments. One of my favorite Haute So Fabulous posts? This one, where Rebecca shares all of the life lessons she’s learned while traveling solo.
