Our Favourite Influencers of 2016

Happy New Year lovelies! Can you believe that it is 2017 already?!? We’re not quite sure where the last year went, it seemed to absolutely fly by, but what a fantastic year it was (for BAB at least – we realise the world lost a lot of incredible celebs and let’s not even get started on politics). 2016 was our first full year blogging and looking back at some of our first posts we have definitely come a long way trying to hone our blogging style. Our aim for 2017 is to bring you even better content and we are also going to be posting weekly over on our YouTube channel starting from today! Thank you to every one who has supported BAB throughout 2016 – you guys are awesome!
