My Favorite Blogs Lately

I don’t know if you guys know, but I tried my hand at blogging a couple of years ago when I blogged with my sister and friend about life issues (mostly abortion). If I had the urge to start a controversial blog again, there are about a million things I would do differently. Through that year or so of blogging sporadically, I discovered a world unknown to me, the blog world. I guess I didn’t really know what to think, but I still follow a couple of the blogs I found years ago. As Pinterest became apart of my life and then some of the bloggers I followed got on Instagram, I was blog-aware. But it wasn’t something I was like super into, it was more based on the person actually blogging (which that’s what it’s supposed to be anyway, but that’s another post for another time).

Then I started this blog.

And next week I’m launching a much better blog. Blogging is suddenly worth an investment to me.

Obviously, I decided to start this blog and get back into the blogging world, but I didn’t exactly expect I would jump in as far as I have. I got back into Bloglovin and now I’m smitten. My eventual goal was to start a YouTube channel, but I didn’t have the time, and I knew I needed to start building my audience as a Marketing major. I don’t know if I’ll even do that. I’m stuck on blogging for now.

All that to say, even though I wasn’t expecting this to happen, I absolutely LOVE looking at blogs! I could probably do it all day actually. So for my content-sharing day, I wanted to share a few of my favorite posts from the last week. Ready?

My Favorites Lately

Playing with Phone Lenses // A Beautiful Mess

This post is from A Beautiful Mess. Now I’m ready to buy phone lenses! I’m also getting way into Instagram, and I would LOVE to have the variety a phone lense would offer. We’ll see.

Full Page Scrapbooking

Full-Page Photo Scrapbooking Ideas // A Beautiful Mess

Okay so this one is from A Beautiful Mess too. But it’s just so perfect!!! Obviously, I don’t have a family, and I’m totally not even thinking about having one right now, but this would be AMAZING for documenting trips or something, right??? I might just have to do this with pictures from Colorado after this week! I’ve never been into scrapbooking, my scrapbooking talent is very limited in the range of tacky to extremely tacky; but I feel like I could totally rock this idea.


Hirashima // Miss Moss

My jaw dropped when I saw the rest of the pictures of this amazing couch. Some of this Hirashima furniture was featured on Miss Moss. My love for saving space is both a strength and a weakness. This couch tops everything and if I ever happen upon a small apartment and a lot of money (har har), this couch is happening. Plus, I LOVE how it looks!

An Astrology Reading // A Cup of Jo

An Astrology Reading // A Cup of Jo

This post was too cute not to share. Okay, I know Astrology Reading sounds so New Age of me or something, and I don’t really know if I exactly believe them, but this date idea was adorable! Check it out on A Cup of Jo.

Resident Tourist

Resident Tourist Link Up // Quaintrelle

I actually just found Quaintrelle today and I’m hooked! I wanted to share this idea with you. This is a monthly Link Up so I might participate next month! If you have a blog, definitely look into doing this! Such an awesome idea!
