cool blogs to check out

Lately, I've gotten into the whole blog thing and have found some really great ones. So, here are the blogs I'm reading. They run the gamut from sewing and vintage to celebs to cooking...

These first blogs are about vintage style (and making the clothes yourself!). My first stop is usually Casey's Elegant Musings. Casey is all about wearing vintage. She has great links to other sites with info about vintage hair (one of my current obesessions), and I lover her flickr faves. I just found Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing, and I'm hooked. Gertie is trying to make all of the items in Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing, and some other things along the way too. The Sew Weekly is about a woman that is trying to make onw outfit for herself a week. These ladies are all a great inspiration, and I hope to be starting on making myself some clothes soon, though I'm sure it will pale in comparison to their wears!

Ok, so I love TV, but I'm not big on spoilers, so I tend to avoid the TV blogs, but one I do frequent has more to do with vintage fashion than the actual plot of the show. It's What Would Emma Pillsbury Wear? I'm a total Gleek and love Emma's vintage inspired style (I'm so getting a sweater guard one of these days! You can see all of Emma's clothes from each episode of Glee and also some look-alikes in case you want to look like Emma too!

Now onto the food. Great down home recipes with tons of pics can be found at The Pioneer Woman Cooks. This is a real pioneer woman out there with her family cooking for them an making it all look so delicious. I love seeing each step of her recipes photographed. And this one is pretty self explanatory, Food Porn Daily. As I explained to Mom recently, these are just delicious looking super closeups of yummy food. It always makes my mouth water.

As you saw in my last post, I love planning parties, and I found a blog that combines great parties with cool modern/retro style. Hostess with the Mostess has great ideas for showers, weddings, birthday parties, really any party you want to have. I pop over there to get the ideas I will eventually use for some party down the line.

And now the old standyby and the one that takes me the longest to read everyday, Oh No They Didn't! ONTD combines all of the celeb gossip from all the other sites, along with original content from users to give you all the hollywood info you could ever ask for. Think of it as your ET or Access Hollywood online, only juicier! If you read this blog, you'll def be in the know about what's going on in the world of entertainment.

So those are some of my favorite blogs. I'm always looking for new ones, so if anyone has any recommendations, just leave them in the comments. And I'm also trying to update this blog more often too. I hope you guys enjoy what I've been blogging!
