Blogs I Follow

blogs

Catching up on the blogs I follow is somewhat of a morning ritual of mine, and at this point, I’ve got a good handful of sites that inspire me in different ways. I use Blogger to organize the blogs I follow, so that when I go on the site, I just have one central feed to look at that shows me the newest posts from all of the blogs I follow, like this:

I’m always interested to see what sites other people are following, so I figured I would share mine here. If you’ve got any you think I should add, please let me know!

LOCAL

iHeartnola.com – Scott Simon, founder of iHeartnola, is such a source of positive energy and always supportive of new endeavors in the local community. I love his site for learning more about local creatives and what’s going on in the city.

Curbed NOLA – Because who doesn’t want to know what different rent prices will get you in this city? Or see what’s new and way overpriced on the market?

Eater New Orleans – This is where I find out all about all the new restaurants and bars, what operations are closing, and the best places to brunch.

GoNOLA – I like their weekend suggestions for things to do and their “20 Questions” column with different locals.

STYLE/POP CULTURE

Finch & Fawn – lovely photos of flowers, and some honest commentary about living with diabetes

Garance Doré

Madewell – the blog actually has a lot of good book and music recommendations, as well as interesting interviews

Moon to Moon – loooove this site for bohemian home inspiration

Upperlyne & Co. – New Orleans-based and run by Juley Le, who’s the sweetest!

PERSONAL GROWTH

Lexlee Overton – Baton Rouge-based lawyer-turned-healer and energy worker

Louise Androlia – Lou is who I’ve historically turned to for tarot readings and clarity sessions. She’s based in Los Angeles, having recently moved there from the UK.
