I think it’s a pretty commonly known thing that I am generally about 20,000 years late to most trends. Instagram? “Nah, don’t need it, I’m gonna be unique” Rewind 4 years and “Err actually, it’s kinda essential for a blogger so BRB while I eat humble pie”… and so the story goes for pretty much every social media/trendy item in existence.
Yeah, Adidas Superstars in black and gold, I’m looking at you!
And the exact same goes for snapchat. To me, Snapchat was something that men used 2 years ago to send dick pics to each other and generally just be twats. Fast forward 2 years and I’ve realised that it’s the most amazing tool for bloggers and Youtubers to interact with their audiences, and work with brands. (… And act like a twat still with that nose distorting filter. Let’s be real!)
So yeah, I’ve been on snapchat – come and join me at theellenextdoor – for around 4 weeks now and whilst I love having fun with it, using stupid filters and showing you exciting new launches, I think my most favourite thing is stalking, perving, creeping watching other bloggers (and the odd celeb’s) day to day lives, and what they get up to whilst not looking quite as glossy as their Instagram feeds.
So I thought I’d share with you my top 10 favourite people to watch on Snapchat at the moment, and give you an extra hour’s worth of procrastination/life envy if you fancy it. Oh you do? Well that’s great, let’s go…
Lydia Millen – @lydiaemillen
First of all, an absolute babe who if she wasn’t so lovely in real life, you’d genuinely want to hate her because she’s so goddamn perfect. Ridiculously beautiful with a wardrobe I’d sell my Nan for (just kidding Nan, love ya really) she has this magical way of being other-worldly but also really relatable. A girl’s, girl. if you will. So apart from being a top babe, why am I obsessed with her snapchat? I mean, apart from the designer hauls and OOTD’s of dreams, she also serves up a dollop of Gymspo and “Oh my god her cat’s so cute I’m officially dead” material. Why wouldn’t you be obsessed?
Emma Hill – @ejstyle / Claire Chanelle – @iamchouquette
Now, I’m putting Emma and Claire together because they’re both friends and I’m lazy and actually really remind me of eachother. Both flippin awesome fashion bloggers, both with a penchant for Chanel, Givenchy and all things designer… they, like Lydia, are the girls with amazing wardrobes but are so incredibly down to earth and “normal” (in the best sense possible). Oh, and did I mention hilarious? Yeah, they’re also that too. My personal fave was Emma discussing the “twinge” you get just before your period but she couldn’t work out if it was that, or she was about to have the shits [insert cry laughter emoji here]. A total open book who I bloody love for it. Oh and did I mention that they have the cutest dogs ever? Another tick on the “Gimme your life, please?” list.
Kylie Jenner – @kylizzlemynizzl
Kylie kinda goes without saying. Now, I do love a bit of KUWTK – that’s Keeping up with the Kardashians, Mum – but I’m not necessarily an advocate for the surgery, poser, in your face kinda life but still, you cannot say that it isn’t intriguing nonetheless. Kylie’s snapchat is a major guilty pleasure but if you can’t steer yourself away from pretty makeup, all the posing, the fakest lips in existence, the most extravagant lifestyle with a bit of friend and family banter and humour, then this Jenner’s the one for you. (I don’t even know if Kendall has an account or not? If she does, lemme know)
Rosie Huntington Whiteley – @RosieHW
I mean, apart from making me feel like Shrek/Sloth from The Goonies/[insert your own choice of ugly person/thing here] Rosie’s snapchat is my new fave thing. I’ve forever been a RHW fangirl – #sorrynotsorry – but I am all about seeing her face snaps (yes I could just stare at her face, don’t judge me) little dachshund snaps – oh ffs, there’s a developing theme here isn’t there? – and generally just what she’s up to. I’m currently sat here post lunch with a spoon and jar of peanut butter and she has just snapped her ridiculously honed body in the gym, which I have to say, isn’t my favourite thing but you know, win some you lose some.
Sarah Ashcroft – @sarah_ashcroft
Another blogger who I met and immediately realised that there’s so much more than just amazing makeup (although it really is frickin beautiful in the flesh too). Sarah is beyond lovely and also beyond hilarious. Her simple snaps of just hanging out and having fun with friends are the kind that makes you want to hang around with her (they are always my favourite kind of people). Not to mention that I have never seen her makeup not look like a professional’s spent the last 4 hours doing it – #highlightonfleek – major girl crush material in this account.
Reem Kanj – @reemkanj
Reem is a new discovery of mine. She has the most beautiful blog which I’ve gone back to so many times but it was only when she followed me on twitter that I really remembered how fab she was. Now a fully fledged Reem twitter/instagram/snapchat/”wherever else I can find her” fan, I absolutely love her snaps following her around the world (particularly to Dubai as I’m pretty sure she splits her time between there and London), making designer purchases – another common theme developing – and generally just being a bit of a babe. I adore her fashion sense so generally spend most of my time shouting at me iphone “I wonder where that’s from and if it’s still in stock”.
Desi Perkins – @desiperkins
Desi is another “if you’re a blogger into makeup and youtube and not following her then who the hell are you?” kinda girl. With a hugely popular youtube channel and makeup skills that make you want to cry your smudged mascara eyes out, she is my absolute go to for makeup inspo, “banter” – I can’t help but hate that word, is it just me? – with her husband and friends, and generally just someone that makes me LOL. You gotta get your kick of humour from somewhere right? Basically, an absolute stunning/babe’in beaut that also has a personality… how unfair is that? 😉
Shay Mitchell – @officialshaym
OK, so I’m going to be totally honest with you in that my Shay pick is purely based on the fact that she is potentially one of my biggest girl crushes and not based on Pretty Little Liars. In fact – are you ready for this confession? I have never even seen PLL. I know, officially rejected from the blogger gang – Shay is one of those stupidly cool girls that can pull off the ridiculous dog ears/tongue filter, the pineapple dancing on her head… basically if you follow her you’ll fancy her a little bit, then hate her because she still looks cool no matter what, and then love her because she’s just a mega babe. The end!
Laura (Buy now blog later) – @buynowbloglater
Finally, we have Laura, who might just be my favourite of the lot (shh, don’t tell anyone). For starters, Laura is such a nostalgic blogger for me as her Youtube channel – which no longer exists [insert hysterically crying/’no but seriously I miss it everyday, sorrynotsorry” emoji here] – was one of the first I ever discovered and I absolutely adored it. She now blogs over at Buy now blog later and I’m still the biggest fan so definitely go and check that out too. Laura just nails the whole “mature enough to not talk to you as if you’re a teenage girl obsessed with zalfie but still unapologetically purchases makeup, clothes and appeals to all”. I adore her snapchat because she talks through her makeup – I am the person that always needs to know what lipstick the girl is wearing – talks through her purchases (I especially loved the Chanel handbag chat), and generally is just the most likeable, easy to watch person. Oh, and she lives in Dubai which is pretty much my 3rd favourite place in the world!
So that brings me to the end of the Snapchatters I have been absolutely obsessed with recently. You’ll probably notice that there were quite a few developing themes here. Firstly, I mainly love watching bloggers; it’s what I do, it’s what I love, and I generally find that we have a lot in common. Secondly, I have a major thing for watching girls draped in designer. Maybe it’s because I’m more Primark than Prada so love indulging in how the other half live, or maybe it’s because I just adore classic pieces and am majorly thinking of investing in some pieces, either way, I’m totally not sorry. Lastly, I love to travel, so watching these ladies see the world – a lot of the time because of their blogs/channels – is just super inspiring for me, and I’ll never get tired of being inspired by complete and utter girl bosses!
In all serious as much as I obviously love the above ladies, I really am enjoying snapchat for myself (and for my job as a blogger) it is such a lovely way for your audience to see the “real” unedited, unfiltered you and I never thought I’d sit there with no makeup on – 99.9% of my snaps are spent makeup free in slobby clothes #sexytimes – and comfortably chat with no self-consciousness. So for that I’m actually really grateful!
I’d love to know who your favourite people are to watch on Snapchat? Also, please do leave your accounts below, I’m always looking for more procrastination material 😉
I really need to get on snap chat
You really do Laura, it's so much fun!
I've never really thought about adding bloggers/celebs onto snapchat but can see the appeal. I love how much more 'real' it is- I'm just not sure whether I can cope with yet another platform, haha! 🙂
Oh really? That's so interesting, it's literally the first thing I thought to do haha. Me too, love the realness hun!
I must say I do not use this application, curious
I'd really recommend it, I enjoy it so much!
I actually don't have Snapchat *oops* x
Heather | Of Beauty & Nothingness x

This was so interesting list. I recently downloaded Snapchat and never used it yet. You made me want to give it a try. I don't even know yet how to use it LoL Here is my Snapchat @nina-kobi. I will try to add you on Snap.
Ah you definitely have to give it a go, I absolutely love it!
I'm not a snap chat user yet but will definitely come back to this when I am.
Ahh you should definitely get it hun, I'm the biggest fan!
I'm avoiding Snapchat but if I get onto it then I'll definitely follow your recommendations of great accounts!
I'm gonna sound like the biggest granny ever but I actually downloaded Snapchat a while back and had no idea how to use it (embarrassing or what) haha. Like I didn't wanna film myself but would have loved to see what other bloggers were snapping etc and I just couldn't figure it out. Will have to get my lil sis to give me a lesson next time I visit Dublin haha and then I will definitely follow you x
Beauty with charm

We can follow each other on Instagram @andjela.dujovic, let me know in the comments so I can follow you back.
Thank you. If you want to follow, please go ahead but only do so if you actually like my blog and don't just want me to follow back x

Ah thanks hun, so pleased you like it!
Amazing selection, Ellie, I'll check these ladies out, especially I'm curious about Laura, her snap and blog. Sorry to hear that she resigned from her YT channel, sounds like it was really great one 🙂
Laura's is amazing, definitely check out her account!
I don't have snapchat and don't even know how it works, well I have some idea, LOL! I feel too old for yet another social platform, haha! But I might eventually cave in 🙂 x
Mummy’s Beauty Corner
Haha I totally know how you feel hun!

Annie | DrugstoreDreamer
I refuse to follow Kylie!! I love Kendall but I feel that Kylie rather than style has nothing else to show!
Mine is doratoubanaki!
haha i never think to follow people on snapchat! I may have to now!
Ahhh fun list! I love Shay so I might check her snapchat out. One of my favorite accounts is actually one of my best friends. She's gorgeous, the ultimate babe and doesn't take herself too seriously at all! Oh and Chrissy Teigen! haha
XO Naomi in Wonderland
You should follow Claire's from heyimclaire (claire marshell) from youtube, so so so so so good x
Katina | http://www.katinalindaa.com
I am always on snapchat. My husband used to rolls his eyes, and now he makes fun of me, so I try to do it when he isn't around. Haha. Even my kids play with my snapchat, though I never upload them to stories. It is about privacy afterall.
I love watching Desi Perkins. She is such an amazing person, and so fun to watch on Snapchat.
I have added you: Chocandlipstick <3
