Hey Gals! Today we’re extra excited to join in on the fun with Mia and Kelli for their monthly favorites link-up because we’re putting a different spin on it this time around. With it being our Blogiversary week, we’ve found ourselves doing a little bloggy reflecting, and with that, we're yet again reminded of the love and admiration we have for our fellow blog community.
Besides the fact that we couldn’t be more appreciative for your support and readership with our own blog, we can’t get enough of all of your blogs! You are all such a creative and talented community, and the two of us are constantly texting and emailing each other with the likes of “Did you see so and so’s cocktail post today!? We need to try that out next time we’re together!” or “Did you read xx yet, we need to keep that in mind for our next link-up!”. Honestly we have learned so, so much in our 2 short years of blogging, and we’d be remiss if not to give some credit to our fellow bloggers!
As is the case with many of us, we both have a lot of different priorities that we juggle throughout the day, so at times it’s hard to comment on every single amazing post we come across and give it the proper due, so today we’d like to highlight some of our very favorite posts.
Even though they are not necessarily from the past month (we just couldn’t limit ourselves) we’re hoping Mia and Kelli don’t mind too much if we bend the rules a little bit, just this once, and spread the love! Thank you gals for providing us with infinite inspiration, wisdom and entertainment – big emoji heart eyes to you all!
Whether it’s blogging advice, recipes, beauty must haves, or just simply an entertaining, good read of a post, we can’t get enough! For anyone unfamiliar with these blogs, check out these awesome posts – and if you are already a fan, well then give them a second read, because they are just that good!!
Biana recently posted an amazing tutorial on how to turn your blog into a custom ios icon - I mean, how amazing is it to see your blog in app form everytime you go on your phone?!
Tif is a gal after our own hearts and always looking for a deal, so when she did a comparison of her favorite beauty dupes, we were allll over it.
You know we can never resist a sequin, so when Meghan showed us how to sparkle even after the holidays, we were fully on board. Plus, we just can't get enough of how gorgeous these pictures are (and the gal in the pics!).
As we mentioned earlier, we are constantly learning the ins and outs of blogging, so Amanda's post on how to not Sell Yourself Short as a Blogger was such a great and helpful read and one we still constantly refer to.
We love to clown it up around here, so when Kristen posted what her cat's online dating profiles would look like, we couldn't get enough - so, so hilarious!
Emelia basically had us at Supermarket Sweep when she posted on her ever lasting game show dreams - and we totally get it, girl - if Double Dare ever makes a comeback, sign the Gals up!!
We love our beauty products just as much as the next gal, but when Elle posted about the 6 beauty tools you should be cleaning, we shamefully realized we were a bit slacking and hightailed it to our sinks to get cleaning!
And after we clean all of our fabulous tools and accessories, we were excited to get them organized thanks to Kate's inspiring Makeup and Jewelry Organization post. We spend so much on all of these great products, we should display them with pride!
Christina recently launched an awesome link-up for Owning It - since we are all about embracing our inner nonsense, we love, love, love this!
We discovered Kristin's blog a couple months back through her weekly cocktail link-up, Thursty Thursday and we were obviously hooked! We don't like to play favorite with our cocktails, *but* her pineapple margarita recipe is really something special so you need to bookmark this asap (and taste test it!!).
We always feel a little inept with decorating, so when Shelby posted about her favorite picks for her new Lady Space, we were immediately obsessed with her stylish and fun picks.
We've never met a list we didn't love, so Amanda's post on 30 ways you know you're a mom immediately hooked us, and M can attest that YES, these are all spot on!!!
Most bloggers can attest that finding great, post-worthy content can be a challenge, so Nadine's post on How to get out of a Funk really hit home for us. Obviously this doesn't only apply for blogging and really relatable anytime you are feeling a bit off your game, oh, and it's pretty hilarious, thanks to the amazing memes (which is a staple from Nadine - seriously, if you're ever in a bad mood, just check out her Friday Favorites posts!!).
Pam is one of the first bloggers that we actually got to meet in real life, and as much as we're obsessed with her blog, we're even more in love with the gal behind the blog. She's hilarious and keeps it 100% real, which is why she wasn't afraid to shy away from a little controversy when some crazy Zendaya fans came after her- and for the record, we totally love the comparison and appreciate the joke!
For anyone who's looking for some healthy living motivation, you need to check out this post from Mia on her experience with Tracking Macros. It's incredibly detailed and informational, and most of all, super inspiring!
As we mentioned earlier in the post, we struggle at times with keeping our blog up and running, while still juggling all of the other competing demanding in our lives, so when Jaelan posted some tips on How to Blog with a Full Time Job, we bookmarked immediately, and then set about to incorporate all of these helpful tips!
This is obviously a small snipet of inspiration we've gotten from all of your amazing blogs - thank you for sharing in the same passion that we do and for keeping us inspired on a daily basis!!
