The Beauty Blog Directory

I have been running a Beauty Blog Hop for the last few weekends and each week it has been gaining in popularity. It has got me thinking - wouldn't it be nice to have a permanent list of beauty blogs - a Beauty Blog Directory! So, here it is!

If you would like your beauty blog added to the directory then please leave a comment with your:
1. Blog title
2. Blog URL
3. A brief sentence summarising the purpose of your blog (it can be your blog tag line if you like)
4. What country you are from. If you would also like to add your city and state, I will include that with your listing - that way you may be able to discover the fellow bloggers in your local area.

Please make sure that your blog title and URL are correct as I will be cutting and pasting it to add it to the list. The only rule is that you blog must have some sort of beauty content ie you don't have to solely post about beauty but as long as you do occasionally (say, at least once a week) then you are welcome to join. I'd also LOVE it if you followed me; however, this is not compulsory for you to have your blog listed as I only want you following me if you are interested in my blog!

I will be listing the blogs alphabetically by country and hope to update it daily. I will reply to your comment once your blog has been added but there is always a chance I will miss some so check back in a couple of days and give me a gentle nudge if it isn't up. Please check back regularly to discover new blogs.

Finally, I have created a Beauty Blog Directory button if you would like to add it to your blog. You can grab the code for it at the bottom of my right sidebar.
