As we enter 2015 full of possibilities and new, we look back at some of our favourite bloggers of the past year. Blogging has gained some serious momentum in the last few years especially in the world of fashion and beauty with many all over the world inspiring us in those oh-so stylish outfits they’ve effortlessly put together left, right and centre. Each blogger has a distinct style which makes them unique and with a doubt, more popular with their readers. From the most enviable wardrobes, best photography to their styling technique, there’s something special that makes them ‘elite’ in the world of fashion. There are so many blogs we love so narrowing it down has been extremely difficult but ‘lo and behold, we’ve finally put together our favourite blogger from across the globe. In no particular order:

How the Bloggers Wear it... LFW AW14

If you follow us on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen that the last few days we've been  Somerset House bound for the bi-annual style-fest that is London Fashion Week. As we've been working with some super stylish bloggers of late we were keen to see how they worked our accessories for the cobbled streets and we definitely weren't disappointed!

Here's just a few of our fave fashion bloggers spotted accessorising their stylish LFW AW14 outfits with Anna Lou of London accessories. Shop the looks below.

C'mon he needs all the help he can get if you don't want to end up with a pair of earrings even your Nan wouldn't wear. So to help you (and him) out we've put together our top ten Valentines gift ideas to give you a few ideas of what a great V-Day gift could look like! Happy Valentines Day 1. The Love Necklace - well it says it all really doesn't it? This necklace is simple and to the point and you really couldn't argue if you were given this as it shows he more than cares. Plus its gorgeous right? 2. Pearl Heart stud earrings - maybe the 'L' word hasn't quite been mentioned yet and you don't want to expect too much?

Oh ok well the necklace is still a great present! 7. Pearl LOVE bracelets - Cute, fun and straight to the point. We like. 8. P.S I Love you ring - so your other half should really write the name of this item on the card to give you the full effect but this heart shaped cubic zirconia ring is just gawjus! 9. Cliffs of Dover Silk Scarf - not red, not Valentines related and no mention of love, are you sure this is a Valentines gift? Well not everything loves the cheese so this one's for you sophisticated gals who like to pretend that Valentines is all just a big marketing ploy (but still expect a gift, naturally) 10. The Love Locket - and finally this is the serious one.
