Loving Lately: Blogs I’m Lovin

Happy Tuesday ya’ll!

Thanks to all your wonderful thoughts, I’m feeling somewhat better. I still have this horrid cough and congestion but the sandpaper throat in my feeling has subsided. Hopefully in time for my 24th birthday coming very soon! Thank you SO much for all your well wishes especially for those of you who commented, tweeted or e-mailed me about feeling better, I truly appreciate it!

So I’ve had a follower of mine (talkin about you Yahanna 😉 ) ask me for my blog suggestions and I decided that it would fit PERFECTLY with Loving Lately today, linking up here with some of my favorites Niki and Rachel. Click on any of the blog headers to take you over to the blogs I featured!

I’m naturally a huge Lauren Conrad fan so I’ve been a follower of TBD since it’s birth! My beauty bible.

Any blogger that doesn’t want to be Elsie and Emma is CRAZY. Beautiful sisters with amazing style, beautiful DIYs and photos. 

Ah Mish, a woman after my own heart. Her blog is hilarious. Emily lives the dream life, she’s designed her own bag for Coach!. Such beautiful style.

Reading Jessica’s blog just always puts me in such a good mood, she’s so sweet!Lauren just had a baby but I swear her sarcasm has only sharpened with her lack of sleep.

The photoshop tutorials on Pugly Pixel cannot be beat.

Beautiful photos and such creative DIYs!

I want to add in a few anecdotes about some of the links I share today:

  1.  I have so many wonderful blog friends that I read and comment on daily for various reasons because I love their blogs but also because I consider them my friends. I hope with all my heart they’re not offended if they’re not listed here. I LOVE your blogs but I’m looking to showcase specific blogs today to appeal certain masses and I hope you love some of these too!
  2.  I did list mostly blogs that we would consider as “bigger” blogs. These big blogs often provide me inspiration for my blog. At the end of the day, big blogs often have the staff and income to produce blogs that appeal to a wide mass, that’s why I’m sharing them today. With that being said I LOVE “smaller” blogs, much like my own and I promise I’ll do everything I can to help uplift smaller blogs by offering guest posts or social media shoutouts for you all. I’m in the process of updating my Blogroll which includes all my daily reads!

Do you love any of these blogs too?

Time for the football rant that you knew was coming

(If you have no idea what happened last night, feel free to read!)

I’m going to go on a QUICK football rant because that was absolutely crazy. I mean every bad call is a bad call but last night was clearly disputable. For those of you who didn’t watch the game, the Seahawks threw a last minute pass which could have been ruled either a touchdown by the Seahawks or an interception by Green Bay. Referees ruled it in favor of the Seahawks and they won the game. Seahawks undoubtedly played a STELLAR defensive game and both teams worked hard for every point they scored but everyone is up in arms because the last play of the game had to be decided by the “replacement” referees who are standing in for the experienced referees (who are on a lockout for more money). I can’t stop watching the replays because there is undoubtedly wiggle room to defend either decision (even though I lean in favor of Green Bay on this one). All this means is there is a 100% chance everyone will be criticizing the NFL owners, begging them to end this referee lock out and I join them! C’mon guys! #EndThisLockoutNow But both teams played an AWESOME game!

Okay if you hate football, you can come back to me, I’m done! 🙂

Have a great Tuesday everyone!


To Do List: Spend time with loved ones

Happy Wednesday loves!

Last night, I took a step away from the blogosphere to spend quality time with some of my dearest friends. I had dinner and wine with my best friend Auva and spent 2 hours group chatting with my 2 long distance best friends, Chid and Eva. It’s so easy to get caught up in the millions of things we feel like we have to do everyday but at the end of the day, friends and family make life worth living.

So I’ve added to my to-do list to spend more time nurturing the relationships of people close to me. Whether that means cooking dinner for my family, more happy hours with friends or maybe some real life blog meet ups, I need to learn how to silence my phone, refrain from checking instagram or log off my computer more often to interact in real time. Yesterday was a wonderful example of that. Love you ladies!

Ever have those days when it feels good to just put down the laptop and spend time with the people you adore?

Bloggy Love

And since I don’t want you to leave empty-handed, I figured I’d share some of my must-read blogs:

 I can’t get ENOUGH of Lauren, she is so honest, sarcastic but remarkably sweet. I adore her.

In reading one entry, Mish had my heart. By far, the funniest girl in the blog world and my total blog crush.

If anyone can make you LOL with hashtags, it’s Kristine. And she has the most adorable children!

So much of Simply Evani was inspired by Maggie. While I can only dream of being as talented and successful, she’s so incredibly open with her life and it makes me want to stay awhile.

None of these blogs are sponsors, I just genuinely love reading them!

Which blogs are your must reads??

Happy Hump Day!
