Hope y’all had a great weekend! Joshua and I had a bonfire at our house Friday night with a couple of friends. Saturday involved an intense workout, blogger brunch in Uptown Charlotte, and date night with the hubs {mini golf + Big View Diner}. And Sunday was full of time with family and a wonderful church service. What did y’all get into? 

As I mentioned last Monday here, before I started Louella Reese, I read several other blogs. From fashion to food and everything in between. These blogs {one in particular} are actually the reason I started Louella Reese. Some people like reading the news or the Skimm to start their morning, I like reading blogs and have for the last four plus years. It’s a great way to start the morning and dive slowly into the working day. I have about ten blogs that I read every morning. With a couple others I check throughout the week. I find this list to be manageable and these blogs to be incredibly entertaining. Whether it’s for their fashion, photography, personalities, or tips. I aways finish my morning blog reading feeling inspired and honestly, excited to start my day!

Since it’s Monday, I wanted to kick off the week with the ladies I kick off my week & each morning with: 

Gal Meets GlamFashion, Photography, Travel, & Beauty

Sequins & Stripes: Fashion & Life – this is my absolute favorite blog! I adore Liz and find that we have very similar style. Therefore I LOVE seeing that new items she’s picked up or how she’s styled a sweater we both have. A great spot for me to grab some fashion inspiration. 

Glitter & Gingham: Fashion, Beauty, Travel, & Home

Poor Little It Girl: Fashion, Beauty, & Blogging Tips  – The first fashion blog I ever read! You can hear more about what Cathy inspired me to do here.

My Style Vita: Fashion & Beauty

The Style Hunt Blog: Fashion – My blogger biff, I love checking out Emily’s site for edgy inspiration. Emily inspires me to step outside of my fashion comfort zone and try new items. Love her for that!  

How 2 Wear It: Fashion, Beauty, & Life 

Fashionably Lo: Fashion, Beauty, Travel, & Life  

Pink Champagne Problems: Fashion & Travel – Dana recently went to London and I am obsessing over every single post of hers lately that involves the beautiful city. Her fashion while there was just as chic as her surroundings. 

Covering The BasesFashion, Travel, & Home

You can see everyone l I follow on my Bloglovin’ account here and if you haven’t yet, you can sign up to keep track of all of your favorite blogs in one place

I would love to hear what additional blogs y’all follow. Especially for travel, beauty, and food. Since I’m now working from home I’m in serious need of lunch inspiration. I’m starting to get tired of avocado toast, egg dishes, and homemade burrito bowls. Comment below to share the blogs y’all love! 

Also, just became even better! There is now an app that you can download to make the images you like even easier to shop + shop via snapchat and instastory. I’m sharing a step by step how to here. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you’ll see all of the instructions. If you have any questions about the new app, please feel free to send me an email!
