It’s that time again, friends. For your lazy Sunday reading pleasure, I wanted to share a few of my favorite blogs. When I’m not reading true crime articles, I spend much of my internet time perusing all things pretty. These blogs fit the bill.
Design*Sponge: This was the first blog I remember reading religiously. When I was living at home looking for jobs and working on my thesis, I was pretty familiar with the Design*Sponge post schedule. Refresh, refresh! I particularly love taking personal peeks inside other people’s homes, and I really appreciate the historic bent they’ve taken explaining flowers and stones, etc. The personal essays are wonderful, too. Basically, I love it all.
designlovefest: DLF, as I like to call it, just makes me happy. Bri Emery’s bright, happy aesthetic comes through in everything she and her studio produce. Her travel posts could inspire wanderlust in the most slovenly house cat. I always look forward to new desktop downloads as an extra bonus!
Oh Joy!: Joy Cho is everywhere these days. Her family is adorable. Her taste is impeccable. (I’ve even watched her maternity dressing videos, and I have no desire to be pregnant.) Her blog (and her book on blogging) are not to be missed.
Kendi Everyday: I like a good style blog as much as the next girl, but sometimes I can’t relate to the person or the clothes I can’t afford. Kendi Everyday is the antidote. She’s that stylish friend you want to emulate, dressing well, but (mostly) affordably. Plus, her writing voice is friendly, approachable and not always about the clothes.
A Cup of Jo: Jo has all the coolness of a typical French girl, but she’s living life as a wife and mother in NYC. Her honesty is refreshing, and she links to some great stuff, too.
All of these blogs do a great job of blending the ideal with the real, mixing posts about clothes or homes with honesty about dealing with break-ups, anxiety, and the overall balance of life. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
