The Blogosphere – Favorite posts of the Week

I have a deep love for blogs. There are so many amazing ideas and points of view out there — I can literally spend hours reading blogs and searching for new, fun blogs to follow. My love first started when I was planning my wedding. Now, although I still follow some of the same wedding blogs (for fun), my Google Reader is filled with blogs on fashion, home decorating, and travel.

Many people ask me what blogs I follow, so I thought it might be fun to share with you my favorite blog posts each week.

Here are my favorite posts from the week of January 2nd:

I love DIY projects. I have a list of projects to tackle this year and just added this fun DIY Yarn Chandelier to my list. This is perfect for parties or even unique decor around the house (maybe over the dining room table in more subdued colors?). Check it out and let me know what other uses YOU think these chandeliers might have.

I love Target’s on-going collaborations with fashion designers. It’s great to have the opportunity to buy and wear pieces created by amazing fashion designers, BUT without breaking the bank. This week The Budget Babe was all over Target’s  next collection debuting in February – Jason Wu for Target. Check out all of her posts here, here, and here.

I’m always looking for cool color combinations . This week Coco+Kelley featured a beautiful combination of aquamarine and navy blue. Check out the post to see how they make this color scheme work in the home and as a cute outfit. Earlier this summer I was on a mission to find inspiration for our patio which I wanted to decorate in blues and corals. What color combos are YOU into lately?

I’ve been obsessed with kitchens lately – especially since I might be embarking on a kitchen redo of my own (more on that soon). This particular kitchen featured on La Dolce Vita is AMAZING! Seriously how beautiful is that globe chandelier, the bright breakfast nook, and those mirrored cabinet doors?

This is so domestic of me, but seriously my favorite post of the week was Kitchen Pantry Makeovers by Home Stories A to Z. How amazing are those pantries? You can pull great ideas from each and every pantry featured in the post. I love the idea of the chalkboard labels on the jars and bottles, the door racks, and the labeled wicker baskets that help organize those random sized items that always look messy. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

How cool are the chalkboard lables on those jars?
