I love not only to write on Cupcakes and Cloth Diapers, but I absolutely LOVE reading blogs. Most of my favorites are fashion and style blogs and I daydream about throwing extravagant parties, decorating my house impeccably, and wearing beautiful clothing. I also love that a couple of my favorite blogs incorporate motherhood (or fatherhood) and faith. I’m going to share my top 5 favorites and a quick description of each. 🙂
1. Oh Joy!
I absolutely LOVE Joy’s blog. She has amazing taste in food, clothing, and decor! I also love how she talks openly about her 2 year old daughter and shares the cutest pictures of her. Joy’s style is colorful and her posts always inspire me in one way or another.
Remember how I’m a mommy and can’t own nice things? Well, Emily doesn’t yet have children and owns a lot of nice things, and she always shares her favorites. I love how she gives tips on hosting a great party and seems to embrace the beauty of the little things. I
I love love love Laura’s blog. She is a mom of two little ones, living in LA, and married to a famous producer/director, that she refers to affectionately as The Gorilla. Laura shares pieces of her glamourous life, her daily struggles with being a mommy, as well as her favorite style and hosting tips. I love the sense of honesty and balance that she brings to her blog.
I originally found the Small Things Blog via Pinterest. Kate is a hairstylist with INCREDIBLE hair tips and tricks and that made me curious about her. I discovered that her blog was more than hair tips and also included some beautiful outfit inspirations and awesome giveaways. She recently had a baby and with that comes a whole new dynamic to her blog, which includes her perspective of being a mommy.
It’s no secret that I LOVE Shauna Niequist’s books, so when I discovered her blog, I was in love. Being that her books are basically short stories about her life and how it relates to God, her blogs are very similar, and I love it. If I can’t sit down and read a book for several hours (talk about a DREAM!), I can sit down and read her latest blog post and get the same feeling. I loved discovering that my favorite author had a blog. 🙂
