Your New Favorite Lifestyle Blogs
Five amazing lifestyle blogs for inspiring & refreshing content.
Through Boxwood Avenue, I’ve learned quite a bit about photography and styling, but most of all I’ve gotten to virtually know some amazing women, and I truly think you will love them too. Having virtual friends is a funny thing, but these ladies are constantly inspiring me or supporting me, and I am so grateful! Today I wanted to share them with you!
Kaylee Giffin // The Blondielocks
Since 2013 The Blondielocks has been a destination for all things fashion, food, home, beauty & DIY. I’m here to help you to become inspired to “Curate a life that is just right.”
I have no idea when Kaylee and I first ‘met’, but it was sometime during the beginning of Boxwood Avenue. I quickly fell in love with her genius DIY projects (she put a carnation on a cupcake, and it was the cutest thing I’d ever seen). I’d like to say we are each other’s fan girls and we continue to support each other whenever we can. I’m always inspired by her photography, genius fashion hacks, and delicious recipes.
Jacquelyn Clark // Lark & Linen
Jacquelyn is the kind of girl that would always have your back in high school. She’d also probably (oh so politely) let you know if you had spinach in your teeth. She’s kind, cultured, and has an amazing sense of style. Her interior design work continues to inspire me, and I am lucky enough to have her eyes helping me a bit during our remodel.
Lark & Linen shares weekly home tours, easy recipes, and lovely entertaining ideas. Her mission is to, “provide you with fresh and inspiring, uplifting content of all kinds five days a week, each and every week.”
Lauren Kelp // Lauren Kelp
“In a world of selfies and #OOTD’s, LaurenKelp.com is a refreshing, witty, and unexpected approach to thoughtful living without the pressure of being perfect.”
Lauren and I met through the web, and I instantly felt comfortable around her. Her lifestyle site is all about sharing thoughtful living (without the pressure of being perfect). Ranging from healthy living, recipes, home tours, and so much more, Kelp’s site is one of my favorites!
Deborah Stachelski // Society Letters
“Society Letters is a women’s publishing site focusing on inspiring and encouraging the everyday woman. We live in a world where comparison and competition via social media can begin to grind on our soul if we are not careful, and forget that one of our main purposes in life should be to uplift one another. SL provides highly relatable content, ranging from relationships, career, home and design, and everything in between.”
I first met Deborah through an email; she had reached out to me to ask for help with an idea she had. That idea, Society Letters, has become a successful online publication site for women seeking real life stories from other women across the globe. We text each other daily, and she has become one of my closest friends. Deborah and I had the chance to meet in real life during a conference she was speaking at, and I can tell you she is as amazing in real life as she is online. An incredible writer, designer, and all around great friend, I know you’ll love Deborah as much as I do!
Angela Mondloch // Saffron Avenue
Before I had ever started blogging, I loved Angela’s work, and although I my avenue didn’t stem from hers, I have a major crush on all of her work. She is a regular contributor to Jacquelyn’s site, and shares fabulous downloads with her readers – I particularly love her digital planner.
Angela’s site, Saffron Avenue, will give you all the graphic design inspiration you could ever want. She has a way of pairing patterns and colors together to create beautiful digital designs, and often times, she offers them for free! If you’re looking for an awesome designer for branding of web, she is your girl!
