What I’m Reading

What I'm Reading

Being a blogger, I read many blogs each day. Some are perfect to peruse over that morning cup of coffee, while others keep me well-dressed and on trend. Then there are those that make me stop and think.

I’m always looking for new blogs to learn from and love, so today I thought I would share some of my favorite reads.

Cupcakes & Cashmere
After a few months of blogging, I landed on Emily’s site. I love all of her creative DIY’s, healthy recipes, and fashion. Just this week she posted an interview with a nutritionist that really resonated with me (and made me want to eat right in 2016!). Her content is fresh and exciting, which keeps me coming back for more!

The Fresh Exchange
Megan and Mike are a husband and wife team that blog and own a design studio. Their beautiful images and lettering accompany every post, and if travel is your thing, these two probably have a guide for you. Megan keeps me intrigued with her wise words and insightful posts. And I know I can count on them for both practical posts (like How to Make Bulletproof Coffee) and meaningful ones (like Megan’s Monday Words).

Elana Lyn
If you’re seeking career advice, this is the blog for you. I’ve had the privilege of meeting Elana in person and she is just as intelligent and charming as she appears through her blog. I appreciate her Career Profiles, where one can learn about the career paths of successful women. She also writes about exciting networking events that are happening in New York City, and she gives new fitness class reviews.

Camille Styles
Camille’s blog highlights everything from beauty tutorials and product round-ups to home decor and healthy recipes. I’ve shared Camille’s site with non-blogger friends, and they, too, appreciated her decadent desserts, tips to plan a killer themed dinner party, and how to make old decor seem new.

For the seasoned working professional (or new working girl!), Mary will make you the resident fashionista in the office in no time. Whether you have a corporate job or live the freelance life, Mary posts everything from office-appropriate attire to off-duty looks that are as effortless as they are chic. And if you work in conservative quarters, Mary demonstrates that your wardrobe need not suffer; you can still dress with panache. She infuses personality into each of her looks — and her posts — while showing you how to dress for success.

What are some of your favorite blogs to frequent?



  1. Thanks for sharing these blogs with us. The only one I’ve heard of is the cupcakes and cashmere blog. I’ll have to check out the other ones you’ve listed here. I follow mostly smaller blogs, but I do really enjoy the Fashion Guitar. I love to see her creations. Even though I can’t afford her clothing, I love the inspiration I get from the blog. I also love that she takes the time to respond to her followers by commenting back. It makes me happy to know that for even with how successful she is, she still takes the time to converse with her followers. If you don’t follow her, you should check out her site.


  2. Thanks so much for sharing some of your favorite blogs with us, Vanessa! I love Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere, then again, who doesn’t?! She’s awesome! I have to check out the other girls you’ve mentioned, as I’m not familiar with their blogs yet. I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far, girlie!
