My Favorite Blogs Edition 7 – The Pioneer Woman

After a hefty dose of beauty and fashion blogs, it’s time to take a jump to food!  I don’t think this lady will need an introduction, so here we go… today we’re  going to talk about Ree!

Ree Drummond – The Pioneer Woman

For years I had admired the Pioneer Woman… I watched her show and made her recipes, but I never read her blog.  I don’t know why… maybe I thought she was to “big-time”… that the blog would just be a way to advertise her show.

Was I ever wrong!  First of all, this woman should be an inspiration for every blogger out there.  She started a blog about what she loved and built it into an empire!  Should anyone ever tell you that blogging can’t be a business, just direct them to Ree.

Secondly, this isn’t just a food blog.  Yes, she shares recipes, but she also shares about her home and family… and she is funny!  Whatever her post is about that day she will keep you entertained and bring a smile to your face.

If you, like me, haven’t explored The Pioneer Woman’s blog… I suggest you head over there.  You’ll start your day with a laugh and find something to make for dinner at the same time!

My Favorite Blogs Edition 6 – Rachel Talbot

Today, for edition 6, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite YouTubers!  She is a mom, a beauty guru, and a musician… meet Rachel!

My Favorite Blogs Edition 6 Rachel Talbott www.jilliandanielle.com

Rachel from Rachel Talbott

While Rachel has a lovely blog, her primary focus is her YouTube channel… or channels! Rachel is a beauty guru, but her focus is mostly on skincare.  While she does offer makeup tips as well, her theory seems to be that if you take care of your skin you need less makeup!  All her videos are expertly filmed and fun to watch, and I really trust her recommendations!

In addition to beauty advice, she also offers a wide variety of topics including recipes, DIY’s crafts, décor, parenting and organization!

She also has an interest in music, which you can listen to at Rachel Talbott Music.

The YouTube gene runs in the family… her husband, Byron, is a chef, and also has his own cooking channel on YouTube!

If you don’t know the Talbott’s, be sure to take a few minutes to get to know this interesting family!

My Favorite Blogs Edition 5 – The Teacher Diva

For Edition 5 of my Favorite Blogs series, we are going to head in a slightly different direction.  So far I have mostly focused on beauty blogs, but as far as I’m concerned this girl is a fashion queen!  Meet Ashley!

Ashley from The Teacher Diva

Although I love fashion, and I am never happier than when I manage to put together an outfit that is spot on, most days I feel like I miss the mark.  That is why I devour Ashley’s fashion posts and her Instagram feed!  Her style is effortless and chic, and perfectly embodies what I want my style to be.  Her color palette is perfect and her style relaxed, and she has provided me with some intense fashion inspiration!

A native of Dallas, Texas and former teacher, Ashley now works on her blog full time while still volunteering at local schools.  Her easy writing style and fabulous photography help to inspire everyday women to achieve the style of their dreams!

Be sure to check out Ashley’s blog and her lovely Instagram account!

Karima McKimmie – Shameless Fripperies

Karima is, without doubt, my go-to girl for makeup tutorials.  Her website is beautiful, but her YouTube channel is where she really shines.  She has a tutorial for literally every taste and style, and her technique is flawless.  Whether you are looking for great step-by-step instructions, or just makeup inspiration, look no further than Shameless Fripperies!

Starting out with a passion for makeup, Karima worked on her blog and Youtube channel throughout college.  She manages to operate her blog like a full time business while attending school, and she is owning her place on the internet!  Even if I am not searching for a particular look, I stare at her videos, mesmerized by her shear talent!  Also, as an Aussie, her fabulous accent is soothing and lovely to listen to.

Be sure to check out Karima’s site.  I know you will appreciate the talent and hard work she brings to her blog!

Katie from Cup of Tea

A stay at home mom with two kids, Katie shares a variety of interest on her blog, but most of all she seems to really love life!  With both a blog and a YouTube channel, her bubbly personality truly seems genuine.  She was one of the first more established bloggers to comment on my site and welcome me to the blogging world!

She, along with three other ladies, hosts the High Five For Friday linkup each and every Friday.  If you have an up and coming blog, be sure to submit your blog to their linkup!

With two small children and a busy life, I love her realness and positive attitude!  Plus I have gotten some great recommendations from her site for beauty, snacks, tea, planners, tv shows… you name it!

Be sure to check out Katie’s blog, I know you will love her authentic and energetic personality!
