Top Ten Tuesday- My Favorite Non-Book Blogs

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week we’re sharing the blogs we read that aren’t related to books. Honestly, I read mostly book and writing blogs (and I’m not including the writing ones because they kind of overlap into books), but there are a few other sites that I check regularly.

First of all, I love blogs about entertaining, especially about kid’s parties.

1. Loralee Lewis– The ultimate party blog.  Check out her obsession with Harry Potter.

2. Sara’s Party Perfect– One of the great things about this site is that people submit their own parties as well.

3. Thoughtfully Simple– This one has recipes, entertaining info, wedding stuff…a little bit of everything.

Decorating- Outside of book blogs, I probably spend the most time on decorating sites. Here are just a couple chosen from the TONS I love:

4. The Painted Old Cottage– Do yourself a favor. Take a tour of her home. I want to live in this lady’s house.

5. A Thoughtful Place– This is one of my absolute favorites. She has decorating, DIY stuff and  parties.

6. The Yellow Cape Cod– She always has great design boards and easy DIY projects.

And then there are a few random sites:

7. Gawker/Jezebel– You guys, there sites are hilarious. The writers are the best.  Sometimes I feel bad for laughing at the stuff they say (I definitely can’t check these sites with my kiddos around) and I don’t often agree with the views espoused by them, but hello, they are awesomely snarky and funny.

8. Bakerella– My friend Tammy turned me on to this one. It’s a baker’s heaven (or for me it’s a hell, because my stuff never looks as cute as hers).

That’s all for this week!

    • I used to go totally crazy with my kid’s parties, but now I’ve learned to reel it in. Still, I love seeing people’s ideas. The planning is half the fun.

    • Yeah, I’m sort of mental, but each year I get a little better and not so crazy. The smaller parties always turn out better anyway. I try to keep all of the cute, creative details and I encourage the kids not to have the standard same old thing, but in the end I just want them to smile.

  1. So many cute decorating blogs! I honestly don’t read them often because they make me
    Feel bad about my own decorating skills. Haha They’re all soo cute!!

    • Sometimes they make me jealous! But honestly, most of the time I get cute ideas and since it’s DIY, it’s not usually expensive. I could spend hours on decorating blogs. 🙂

    • I’m a teensy bit DIY. I can paint and refinish furniture and stuff like that, but I can’t sew to save my life. That would be a great DIY skill to have!
