i heart blogs


Got Blog?
I do! And there are some blogs that I can't live without. The following is my top 10 blogs that I think you shouldn't live without either:

Roz, the wunderkind behind Clothes, Camera and Coffee gives me goosebumps. She is a real and great beauty but hardly seems to notice it, so caught up herself in her love of art and fashion. She doesn't merely pose her outfits, she and her family collaborate and make the most inspiring fashion editorial style shoots in the beautiful country side of England. She is a MAJOR vintage lover, and what I love about her is that she actually creates mood boards of her outfits. Mark my words: THIS GIRL IS THE FUTURE OF FASHION. I have no doubt she'll be the Anna Della Russo or Anne Wintour of her generation. Or the next Grace Coddington.

Another photographer, this Norwegian beauty takes photographs as swooningly gorgeous as her own lovely face. She is a soulful stylist and down-to-earth spirit and her photos and her outfits reflect that. Barbro is no slave to fashion. She is more trend-setter than follower and her pictures are full of inspiration. You won't find any "It" bags in Barbro Andersen's blogs, but a pair or two of of her Louboutins are par for the course.

Zoe Cullie is frosted-over, frozen Popsicle cool. This Denver demi-goddess is one of the cool girls everyone likes whether or not she bothers to talk to you. Her Haiku is hip, and from what I can tell, she's only recently been blogging but has already won accolades on her amazing style the world over. God knows, this girl can rock an outfit, and is so full of clever, witty quips, you just have to check out her blog. Her byline is: an historical tour de force, grilled to perfection. Which may be a gross understatement. Best of all, she's got a tattoo of her favorite poet on her arm. How awesome is that?

Nathalie, a Swedish-Italian hybrid is a beauty who makes lovely photos of lovely outfits. Her style is effortless, and clothes hang particularly well on her svelte frame. Doesn't hurt that she has cheekbones to kill for and legs that'll take you into next week.  If you like genuine gamine style, you'll love My Floor is Red.

Welcome to Wayne's world. This is a world of street style as seen through the eyes of professional photographer, Wayne Tippets. Chronicling street style from around the globe since the late 1980's, Mr. Tippets captures more than mere outfits but the expressions of each personality. Think of this blog as a beautiful coffee table book on wheels. Seriously the best photos in street fashion ever. Yes, better than the Sartorialist. Go see for yourself.

Maybe it's because I freaking love the name. Or because she is a major thrift-store junkie who rocks the fuck out of vintage like nobody's business, or maybe because she's a beauty from my hometown, Sacramento. But Lisa M, the siren behind the Starship always makes for good blog, each time, every time.

Three words: Mad, mad, mad style, California, Rock-n-roll. Ok, maybe that wasn't EXACTLY 3 words. So here's a fourth: AWESOME.

Write this name down: Jemina Jakin. This Singapore beauty & proud mother, very recently started her fashion blog due to popular demand. I first saw her in post on the Glamourai.  A REAL SWEETHEART. Not only has this lady got a world-class wardrobe, she is so warm and friendly and supportive of other bloggers, that if your heart was an ice cube, it would already be melted.

9) Violet Folklore. 
You may already know I'm a big fan of the people behind this blog. My lovely friend Amber Magnolia and her beautiful family really showcase the spirit of California in the country and bring out their best in the beautiful setting of Grass Valley.

10) Grit & Glamour
NEW!!!  
Well, at least to me. Freshly discovered by me, but pretty well established in the blogosphere, this FIERCE tell-it-like-it-is writer dishes it out and looks good doing so. I've especially loved her two recent VLOGS on blogging. She gives great advice on what to do, and what NOT to do (HINT: don't play music!)

This whole event is inspired by Kai Müller from the German Blog "StyleSpion", according to the blogger at Stylish Kids who created this global, blog-loving event on IFB, and most definitely has a blog worth visiting.

Thank you so much for the wonderful piece you wrote about me! Funnily enough, I'd just finished commenting on someone else's "I heart blogs" post when I cam across this! It sounds like a really great initiative..But I agree with a commenter above, I couldn't narrow down my blogs to ten!

Thank you for YET another really thoughtful and insightful comment, my mum saw it too and really appreciated it!

Oh & I took a look through the other blogs you featured, and have added a few of them to my favourites!
