food & fashion: sites i love

LA girl Emily Schuman incorporates posts on food, fashion, and home design all with IMPECCABLE taste. it’s a high quality blog from someone of a younger generation which I especially find inspiring! it’s hard not to be sparked by creativity from the beautiful photographs of Emily’s blog– makes me go California dreamin’ every time.

I love my Vogue but for more realistic fashion inspiration I look to Instyle. The Look of the Day always piques my interest. It also does a great job of breaking down new trends and beauty tips– I call it my personal stylist.

addictive. i used to use flickr.com to find inspiration photos on recipes, clothes, and decor, then bookmark them. the beauty with pinterest is that you create your own personalized bulletins that contains all your favorite finds all in one spot! GENIUS– i really wish i would have thought of this. feel free to follow my bulletins!

you have that special event coming up (graduation, wedding, holiday party…) and after rummaging through your closet find you have absolutely nothing to wear. i hear ya sista. the problem is that you don’t want to spend tons of money on a dress that, let’s face it, you’ll probably only wear once or twice. that’s the beauty of rent the runway. this site allows you to borrow top-designer garbs and accessories without paying the full price. i LOVE it and highly recommend it!

when i’m in a bit of a cooking rut, i always look to tastespotting to pick me up. it’s a compilation of food photos submitted from fellow bloggers. the quality of the photographs is magazine worthy and it keeps me up-to-date on new techniques, food trends and unique recipes.

This was the blog that started it all. I remember discovering this site freshman year of college and it catapulted my idea of what an ‘amateur’ blog could be. Not only will you fall in love with the beautiful photographs and recipes but also the witty writing of NYC resident Deb Perelman. It’s one of two food blogs that I am subscribed to, which to me is a huge deal.

http://stumbleupon.com

And if all else fails, there’s always stumbleupon.com. By personalizing to your likes and interests, stumbleupon is similar to pandora.com in its approach.  I promise it will help you find your next favorite website/blog as well as waste hours upon hours of precious time.

What’s your blog/site obsession?

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and
    visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!

  2. I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be precisely
    what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content
    for you? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or
    elaborating on a number of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome web log!

  3. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, very good blog!

  4. On a scale of 1 to 10, in terms of difficultly of i-phone parts
    replacements move, an employed i-phone 2G motherboard isn’t between the
    most demanding. With few extra particular tools needed, and no soldering, it looks fairly simple.
    These days lots of people are highly likely enough to get it
    done with no trouble, especially with the aid of an internet training.
    Remember, but that if you’re feeling the least bit anxious
    about putting a secondhand iPhone 2G motherboard in your telephone, that it will conserve time and money over time
    to have it done by way of a pro!

  5. I like the helpful info you provide in your
    articles. I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.
    I’m quite certain I’ll learn lots of new stuff right here!

    Good luck for the next!
