blogs to live by

i've recently been asked by several friends what sort of blogs are out there and what blogs i read. i wanted to compile a list of blogs i check into on the regular, if not daily. now in no particular order...

1. a cup of jo: written in nyc by joanna goddard, this blog features posts about food, interior design, parties, fashion, joanna's life with hubby alex and new baby toby, art, make up + hair and general lifestyle amusements. a daily read pour moi. 
ha! baby toby
2. {frolic!}: chelsea works in portland as a blogger and freelance photo stylist and her blog is "devoted to pretty finds, effortless style and simple living". so true! i love the itty bitty cozy cottage she stays at in sweden. 
3. truly smitten: sarah is the adorable writer of truly smitten, posting about her life, her work (she owns a custom design and stationary studio), art, food, clothing + accessories...all of it! 
ugh! her stuff is cute!
4. oh happy day: i've mentioned jordan ferney and her blog before (sf bridge dinner + her business cards). oh happy day is another lifestyle blog written by an event planner and letterpress printer. she shares wonderful pictures of such fab 'parties + pretty things'!
pinwheel escort cards she designed (and for under $20!) for project wedding
5. you are my fav: denver living melanie blodgett pens this cool blog in which the title of (nearly) every blog end in ' my fav'. she picks very cute and fun things to write about, be it stationary, teepees, colors, books and beautiful pictures of happy people.

i guess i really love me a lifestyle blog!

a few more great ones . . .
design + interiors: apartment therapy, design*sponge
food: smitten kitchen, sunday suppers, 101 cookbooks
inspiration: pretty pretty paper, simple lovely
fashion: the sartorialist, fashion addict
(fabulous blogroll via fabulous blog, unruly things)

if looking for more, most of these blogs have a area where they list their daily reads and that's a great spot to jump off from. those will then take you to more, and those others to more and so on and so on. por ejemplo: sarah from truly smitten's daily reads.
