What (Blogs) I’m Loving this Week


Yoga Tone.  I’m addicted to taking a specific instructor’s class, which was SO difficult yesterday… that I’m going back for more tonight!  (Seriously, literally starting the class with three minutes of elephant, moving into three straight minutes of plank… moving on.  WHAT?!)


If you can’t tell, I’m obsessed with you, my reader friends.  Whether you’re in Chicago, LA, Minneapolis, or Norway, you guys have inspired and brightened my day since my (embarrassing) post 1.

Though I am also hugely inspired by my fellow bloggers!  Especially moving into this transition phase, I definitely have some idols and partners in my midst.  So, for your reading pleasure, here are 5 of mu favorite blogs (and bloggers) that I’m loving this week!

1) Keira at A Pretty Penny…


But, I mean, really.  Get.Cuter.  (You can’t.  Scout’s Honor.)  Keira is the rowdy writer of “A Pretty Penny,” which follows her classic, extremely tasteful sense of style, as well as the adventures ongoing in the flower shopper she owns alongside her husband.

2) Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers


I originally heard about Julie’s blog three years ago from friends in Cincinnati, and it just so happens that I randomly went to the same high school as her!  (long time reader… not a creeper.  promise.)  Her blog has fantastic workouts, workout playlists, and insane recipes.  Simple to make and healthy?!  Tell me more…

3) Matchbook Magazine

This little bitty is more of an online magazine than a traditional blog.  I look forward to seeing it in my inbox because I know that it will be an extremely fun read that will provide great ideas to apply to my daily life!  While I could write more about this wonderful blog, I think that they describe the “matchbook girl” much better than I ever could…

The Matchbook Girl
views the world through rose colored glasses
loves to throw dinner parties, but has been known to burn the roast
• values eccentricity over convention •
is the first to laugh at her own bad jokes
• knows the cha-cha, the charleston, and the tango •
paints her nails bright coral when she’s feeling blue
• is infinitely curious •
could happily live off of red velvet cake
• pens hand written notes to her grandmother •
has a signature shade of lipstick
• secretly thinks she may be babe paley reincarnated •
received an ipad for her birthday, but will never give up her library card
• has a bucket list a mile long and dreams a dime a dozen •
is smart, but never a show-off
• listens to the day’s forecast, but trusts her own intuition •
never says no to a sunday matinee at the theater
• is quick to blush, but never short of a witty reply •
has a skip in her step and a twinkle in her eye
• always shares her last piece of gum

4) Jordyn at MY GOODNESS

Jordyn is a super sweet, relatively new blogger, who is off to an unreal start!  I’m obsessed with her inspirational HIIT posts, and her posts about her adorable dogs.  Not kidding.  Her dogs are cuter than baby piglets in sweaters.  It’s difficult to beat baby piglets in sweaters.

5) Carrie at Constructing Carrie

Carrie is likely the most motivational person in the entire world.  Each of her posts focuses on motivating herself and her readers to become “better” – in whatever way they define that term – each day!
