Major Love Monday featuring "The Makeup Fairy" Joanne Larby

Hey lovelies I hope you are all well today. It's another week of love here at Passions and Preening and I am sure by the title you are all well aware of who I have chosen for this week.

Joanne decided to expand her skills and jump into blogging when she had been pursuing a successful career in styling and makeup artistry for a number of years. It gave her an amazing platform and from this she has undoubtedly become Irelands leading female blogger and personality. 
One thing that strikes me from following Joanne is that yes, she has all of these brand deals, a book published etc but yet she is down to earth.

She wants to empower women to be the best they can be, not only in their career but in their physical and mental self, and this is what led me to really take an interest in her and everything she stands for. She is a curvy girl and she believes in strength and health and this has led to many women including myself wanting to take better care of themselves not only for looks but for health.

Joanne snaps her gym sessions and food intake and its great to see the changes in her body, inspiring! She gets a crazy amount of hate for doing this but you know what, haters gonna hate and I honestly feel it's a reflection on them and their lives. I like many feel inspired every day by Joanne and wouldn't want her to stop.

This is a girl who wants other women to succeed and that's what pulls me in with her. Not the amazing instagram pictures or the snaps of her lunches, which always are amazing by the way, but its her quotes, her inspiring words and the way she could be talking to thousands of followers but you can take something personal out of the things she is saying.

She is a great role model for girls and women and she has done a lot for blogging in Ireland. You should definitely go check her out if you don't already!
