Internet High-Fives (Favorite Blogs Right Now)

Today I had a rough time reconciling myself to the fact that having a blog can sometimes lead to terrible things being said about me online.
Now, all I want to do is spread a little blog-lovin' by sharing some of my favorite blogs with you. I love reading about the adventures of other young women, looking at beautiful photography and maybe even learning a thing or two. Oh, and cats. But you already know that I love Internet cats.
I've been reading Tuss Berglöf for awhile, though reading is probably a bad way to describe it. You see, I have no idea what she's saying because I don't read Swedish beyond a "hello" or "yes." Her images stand alone though. Dreamy shots of her and her friends, of beautiful summer days and excellently photographed animals. Her occasional forays into blogging about her outfits always leaves me wishing that my outfit shots were half as lovely and caught the same detail as hers.
As always on these types of lists, I have to add Owl vs. Dove because it is one of my all time favorite blogs. Soph has an incredible eye for trends and fills her little piece of the Internet with inspiration drawn from art exhibitions, clothing designers that someone on my side of the world may never have heard of and music among others. Endlessly inspiring.
Midnight Street/Hey Jo is another Swedish blog with an impossibly stylish girl who wears her hair like Sailor Moon and wears sneakers and takes hilarious pictures (see: pineapple on head) and beautiful ones. She looks like she really has fun blogging and hanging with her friends.
For style inspiration I've been looking at Time is Grey. I love all her color combos, her vintage collection and how she puts it all together.
And obviously, Bow Ties Are Cool. If you have ever seen the comments between us you've seen that me and Meg are in blog-love. I think she's just such a great writer and reading about her time studying in London and writing a novel is inspiring to me in so many ways. It reminds me why I started blogging (to write!) and to get my life in gear for my own graduate school adventures. Plus, how cool is it that she wrote a novel!? I for one cannot wait to read it. Oh, did I mention she's really stylish and has the cutest hair ever?

So what blogs do you love? I'm always looking for something new to read!

  12. I can't imagine what people would find to pick on. You have a rather grounded, laid back blog. I love Meg's blog, too. - Leah, leahwise.com

  13. It wasn't talking smack, it was just something offensive that I took care of quickly and they were decent enough to remove from their site (though not decent enough to not post in the first place).

  15. It never ceases to amaze me how mean people can be! It's almost as though because it's online it's not 'real'.... how horrible for you. I'm pretty new to blogging, so it would be lovely if you'd take a look at mine! Hope your week has picked up x
