6 Sites of Inspiration

Since I began my web logs, a.k.a. blogs, over two years ago, I came across a multitude of personal blog sites that truly amazed and piqued by interest.  Most are local bloggers from the metro, while a number of them are from across the globe which adds a very unique flavor to my growing reading list.

I’ve been meaning to share these interesting mix of ‘blog finds’ but never got around it.  So now, I’m happy to present a few of these fantastic blog sites that never fail to inspire.


FOLIE A DEUX

Why I love this blog:  
Very well-written. Compelling content. Images that will put some pros to shame.
Food and travel posts that would make you drool and want to live vicariously through her.
Exciting and enviable list of travel adventures and recommendations from a busy working mom, captured in vivid photographs.
Jen, the woman behind Folie A Deux, is the reason why I started my own blog. Hers was the first blog I followed. She is my childhood friend and someone I respect and admire as a blogger, and as a mother.



ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL THINGS

Why I love this blog:  
Literally filled with absolutely beautiful things!
Anna is the woman behind this blog eye candy.  She’s an interior designer and her creativity shines in this blog.  When you read and browse through the site, you’ll feel very much at home.
A wealth of design pegs. Perfect site of self-expression, and a wonderful showcase of pretty finds and gorgeous items for the home.



CUPCAKES AND CASHMERE

Why I love this blog: 
Not your ordinary fashion blog. Fun. Savvy and sophisticated. Glam to the max.
One of my most recent discoveries, blogger Emily is in the fashion business but has so much to share — like beauty tutorials, fab finds, great ideas for the home, fashion styling and unique recipes.
With her outfit posts, lots of women would surely want to exchange closets with her!  Such impeccable taste.  Her blog shouts class.



KEVIN & AMANDA

Why I love this blog:  
Fully-loaded with creativity and positivity.  A very bright and happy site that offers endless ideas and DIY projects. Amanda is an artistic maven that generously shares her talents and skills through this site.
Find scrapbooking templates, free fonts, layouts, recipes, photography and graphic design tips and tricks, and so much more!  I have learned a lot from her tutorials.


PLANET AWESOME KID

Why I love this blog:  
A pioneering pro-kid fashion and advocacy site. Supports children-based charities.
Cuteness overload! It will never fail to put a smile on your face.
One can never be too young to channel personal style.  Julia, a talent casting director, heads P.A.K. which documents children’s unique style and fashion from the streets of New York and around the world. I have submitted two images of my daughter (that’s my girl up there) and luckily, they featured her on both occasions.


6 BITTERSWEETS

Why I love this blog:  
Food and photography at their finest.  Styling and photography tips and tutorials. Fantastic (and appetizing) images, mouth-watering recipes, and drool-worthy tools and kitchen implements.  
Xiaolu is the young lady behind this blog that never fails to generate raves from her avid readers.
The writing, the photographs, and the setting reflects her passion, fine taste, and great eye for detail.



Hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do.

This is in celebration of Nuffnang’s Blog Day: created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest.
