While taking a little sabbatical from le blog back in December, the post series I missed most writing was this one :: Blog Lovin'. I've said it a ton already, but it bares repeating - the best part about blogging is the amazing community of lovely people you discover. Here are a few writers & sites I'm adoring lately:
Two Tarts - I'm am absolutely obsessed with combing Dulcie & Sarah's (the 2 tarts) recipe index lately. These fabulous girls love simple but delicious recipes, using local, organic ingredients and dabble with cocktails, sweets & comfort foods. The latest of their scrumptious concoctions that are on my "to make soon" list are pictured above: Roasted Potatoes with Lemon & Thyme, Minty Dog Cocktail, andChocolate Hazelnut Biscotti. I'm making the potatoes tonight - can't wait to taste 'em!
Jenny Sue Makeup - One of my favorite people on the planet! Jen is so sweet & a talented Freelance Makeup Artist, a fellow UGA grad, gorgeous Wife, and busy Mom of 3 cuties. Her blog has been a daily click for me for almost 3 years. She writes a lot about great skincare, makeup trends, and perfecting your best look on a budget. Three recent posts that I loved: Incorporating a touch of trendy neon in your makeup, Good Girl Makeup (aka daytime/work look), and Bad Girl Makeup (for a night out on the town!) Jen always gives step-by-step instructions, great photos, and will answer any question you have.
The It Girl Project - A recent discovery, I've become obsessed with Lynette's blog lately! You may have seen her designs appear on The Decorista's site as well. She's all about chic design on a budget! Lynette blogs about fashion, interior design, beauty, and recipes. She truly is an "It Girl." And one post in particular I love is her take on a look from Charlize Theron, but without the Hollywood pricetag. Check out her space!
Happiness Is A Pink Foo Dog - The blog of Decorator & Chic Shop proprietor Hilary Thomas is adelight for a Pinterest addict like me :) She blogs great design tips, decor trends, and the
latest finds in her shop. Fabulous! And with categories like Eye Candy, Wanderlust, and Crushing On you can count on always reading about Hilary's latest lifestyle passions.
Life In Grace - I can't believe I haven't mentioned Edie Wadsworth's blog here before. Her site is truly one of my most favorite blogs ever! I call her the Pioneer Woman of the South. She reminds me so much of Ree Drummond. But Edie not only shares Ree's talents in photography, decor, food & homemaking, more importantly she feeds my soul. Her main goal in life is to serve God & love others with all she has. She writes about her faith journey, raising her beautiful children, delish family recipes, and so much more. But what captivated me the most when I discovered Edie's space, was how she handled losing her home & every possession in a house fire last year, just a few days before Christmas. She's blogged every step with grace, humility & deep gratitude. And it was a joy to read her posts this last year capturing the rebuilding of their new home with gorgeous decor, hilarious stories, and tender moments of thanks to God. She describes life true to her blog's title: living a dream we don't deserve. Peruse her site - you'll love her too!
So those are the spaces I've been crushing on lately. What are some of your faves?
