Blogger of the Month - Fleur de Force

I really hope you’re enjoying this series of posts and that perhaps you’ve discovered a new blog or two to follow. It’s so hard to just pick one blogger a month because there are so many great bloggers out there – I’ve got a list longer than my arm of candidates for my blogger of the month award! If you have a particular blogger you’ve been loving recently, I’d love to hear about them.

So, let me introduce you to my September Blogger of the Month; Fleur over at Fleur de Force.

This month’s blogger is actually a big in the vlogging community as well, which is actually where I first discovered her awesome blogging skills.


I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is that drew me to Fleur’s blog and videos, but something I can be sure of is that her warm personality definitely helped! She comes across as a genuinely lovely lady; very down to earth and friendly – the kind of person I would get on really well with if we were to meet in person. She is also incredibly beautiful and has the most amazingly gorgeous blonde locks.

Beauty Reviews

The main topic of Fleur’s blog posts and videos is beauty. If I’m completely honest, I will admit that I’m not the hugest fan of ‘pure’ beauty blogs because I can find them a bit repetitive and boring, but somehow Fleur manages to make her posts so interesting and I really feel I can connect with what she’s saying. Yes, she does post about other things as well, but even if she were to do a string of beauty posts I would still be excited to read them! Her photography is clear and colourful and she writes in such a chatty style it really makes you feel like you’re having a girly gossip with your best friend.

Lifestyle posts

As well as posting about beauty and fashion, Fleur also does the odd lifestyle post, which I really love. It’s always nice to find out a bit more about the person behind the blog, and I think lifestyle posts are a great way to do this. This is one reason why I particularly love her two YouTube channels, because you get a lot more lifestyle content and really get to see what a lovely person Fleur is. She does all kind of fun things and it means I can live my life vicariously through her vlogs!


One of my favourite posts and videos that Fleur does is when she shows us around various rooms in her beautiful home. Her and Mike have made a lovely little home for themselves and Fleur’s taste in interior design is so similar to what I love. I also love the way she is able to customise standard pieces of furniture to give them a unique look, such as this set of IKEA Alex draws – how awesome do they look?!


I don’t really get to go on holiday much because money is tight and my health isn’t brilliant. But Fleur seems to travel quite a bit, either for work or pleasure, and I really enjoy being taken along on her adventures, either in her blog posts or through her videos. Like I said above, I can live vicariously through her and go to all sorts of beautiful places. In these posts she incorporates a whole range of photos from food and landscapes to fashion and beauty.


I’ve kind of already covered this in my previous points, but my favourite thing about Fleur de Force is her amazing videos. She has two channels – one for more structured ‘sit down’ videos and the other for more laid back adventures. I love to watch both of them – whether I’m learning how to do a smoky eye, being taken through her shoe collection or going on a road trip to see her family. Every single video keeps you interested and entertained, and Fleur always manages to look beautiful whatever she is doing.

So, that just about sums up my Blogger of the Month for September. If you’ve not checked out Fleur de Force before I really hope I’ve helped convince you to and that you’ve found a great new blogger to follow.

I love to find new blogs to follow, so if you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them.
