Blog Reading Routine

Like most people who have their own blog, I was a fan of reading blogs way before I decided to create my own. I love starting off my morning catching up on a few of my favorites, scrolling through my Bloglovin’ feed, and learning something new, gaining a new perspective, or finding out about a new product. Bloglovin’ is the easiest way to make sure that I don’t miss any of my favorite posts. It is essentially a feed that you can curate to include any blogs you want and it is one of my favorite social media channels.

Today I wanted to give you all a run down on what my typical blog reading routine is, which blogs I have enjoyed following lately and why! I’d love to hear some of your favorites too so leave me a comment at the bottom of the post and we’ll chat!

Before reading any blogs, I always love to read my daily email from The Skimm. I love how it quickly gives an update on the news and makes it easy for anyone to follow along with what is going on in the world. After catching up on The Skimm, I’ll check some of my favorite blogs for the fun stuff:

For Life/Style: Jess Ann KirbyChronicles of Frivolity, Among Other Things

For Photography Inspiration: Gal Meets Glam

For Beauty (and Style): BYO Beauty, Southern Curls and Pearls

For Home Decor: Lauren McBride, Lavin Label

For Food: Pumpkin and Peanut Butter, Skinny Ms.

For Travel: World of Wanderlust, Lauren Wells, Travelettes

For Wedding: Style Me Pretty, Wedding Sparrow, Southern Weddings

For North Carolina/Local Friends: Style Souffle, Southern Style, The MA Times, Molly’s Musings (although she just moved) Life with Emily, Medicine & Manicures, I’m Fixin To (great for local Raleigh finds).. The list goes on and on, I have so many!  You can see who all I follow on my Bloglovin’ account here though and sign up for a free account to keep track of all of your favorite blogs.

I’d love to hear if you have any recommendations of your own favorite blogs… Travel, Beauty, Career, etc.. anything! I hope you all have a great weekend! We’re having sushi with some good friends tonight and we’ll be doing a few wedding things *surprise* such as ordering our invitations, finding some groomsmen attire, and more. We also recently started watching Homeland (thanks, Marianne) and are addicted. Have any of you all watched that?

xo, Shelby
