I’ve been meaning to do this for a while and it fits perfectly since blogging is all about collaborating, sharing and exposing new things. I don’t follow too many people or else, I would spend my whole time on my laptop keeping up with blogs but these are a few whom I’ve kept a special eye on. These are blogs outside of tumblr.
1. Indie Jane Photography
I forget how I stumbled across this blog but I immediately fell in love with the content that she was posting right away which is why she is my favourite person to follow. Her name is Amanda and she’s a professional photographer who lives with her four adorable dogs on a farm that her grandfather built. Her posts vary in content which is why I love following her. Not only does she share her beautiful photographs from the shoots that she does professionally, but she also does “what I wore”, how to’s, crafts, recipes from the food that she makes, posts inspirational quotes. The layout is clean and extremely aesthetically pleasing and she updates regularly. Her instagram is good, a little more personal but it’s not repetitive to her blog so you get a good complimentary feel to it.
If only I lived in the US near her, I wish I could book her and have her take photos/meet her.
This blog is where it all started and my sister was the one who showed me her. James (aka Bleubird) used to own her on vintage shop but she’s been blogging for a long time and since then, has grown a beautiful family and is now stays at home, homeschooling her kids and devoting her time to the blog. It really showcases her lifestyle - posting photos of her family, what type of crafts/lessons they did, what they wore or the food that she made (recipe included). It’s a lot more personal but since I’ve been following her for 3 years, I’ve enjoyed it a lot. In fact - SHE was the one who exposed me to the Mason Jar Pie idea. There hasn’t been much vintage/fashion to it lately but she just had a baby so right now, it’s all about raising the kids and documenting that. Still worth a follow.
It’s cool following someone that you semi-know and considering how busy she is with school, I am extremely impressed with this blog. She’s a very good friend of HS (who is one of my best friends) whom they are both finishing up their school year and are getting ready to start their PR internships.
What I really like about this blog is the variety and the layout. It’s crisp, easy on the eyes but it draws me in to different sections. She has her music, personal stuff, DIY for knitting (which is a new hobby that I love) - there’s just a lot to look at so again this is another blog that I really enjoy looking at from time to time.
4. Apartment Therapy
Is this a blog? Doesn’t matter, I think everyone who loves decorating ideas, tips and wants ideas on how to spice up their living space should look no further. WARNING: Once you start, it’s impossible to stop looking. Soon enough, you’ll get cravings to want to redecorate your entire living space. I know I can’t wait to get my own place and decorate…
