5 Blogs I'm Enjoying Right Now

When I joined bloglovin', the thing that excited me most was the likelihood that I'd encounter blogs I'd not seen up 'til now. I was exactly right. I really enjoy receiving the curated feed daily based on my interests, and I almost always find something interesting to look at as I scroll. Here are 10 blogs that I've been enjoying thanks to that curated feed from bloglovin'.

Disclaimer - None of these people know I'm recommending their blogs, no kickbacks involved. They really are just things I'm reading regularly and enjoying. :)

1. A Beautiful Mess  - I knew about this blog in years past as I've long been an admirer of Elsie Flannagan's, but I'd gotten out of the habit of reading once it shifted away from being primarily about scrapbooking. I'm back in the habit of checking out her awesome DIYs and quirky design styles, and I'm enjoying every minute of it. I think millennials and people who love vintage style would probably find this blog especially appealing.

2. I Spy DIY - This blog is visually appealing and energetic, plus it's filled with great diy projects. It's one of those blogs that just makes me happy to look at, no matter what the topic might be. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, then you definitely want to check it out.

3. Brain Pickings - While this blog primarily seems to recommend books, I find the blurbs/quotations/overviews of the books incredibly powerful. While I might not make time to read many of the books they recommend (mostly nonfiction), I find myself learning from just the overviews. The curators of this blog have a real knack for honing in on very powerful quotes to share. If you're someone who loves reading, this might be a good choice for you.

4. The New York Review of Books - I didn't realize at first that the NY Review of books also publishes news articles rather than just book reviews. Maybe I was just being too literal in my thinking. Anyway, I've found this blog to be an amazing collection of various topics related to the world today. Often, particular books are referenced in terms of a particular topic, but the articles themselves aren't about specific books. Newsies, this one's for you.

5. The Sartorialist - Fashion eye candy at its best. Mainly shot in NYC, I love to head to this blog and scroll through the fashion shots of the week. I might live in small town USA, but that doesn't mean I can't dream of big cities and imagine myself there. If you like fashion or photography or city life, you'll find something you love on this blog.
