A little bit different than my usual Monday format but I wanted to switch things up this week!  Also because of the holiday chaos link love is a little different today. I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite blogs that you may not have heard of or read yet! I typically feature a similar group of healthy living blogs for link love on a weekly basis so I wanted to share some others on my list of must-reads:

Pinterest Told Me To: This is a new discovery for me and I love it! Shaeffer takes fashion ideas from pinterest and tries them out, making them work in everyday life. Genius! Now I’ve mentioned it before but I am not the most fashion forward person in the world so this makes it seem a little more doable for me. Everything she buys to put together the outfits are from stores I’ve actually heard of and can go get the outfit for myself! I recently loved the outfit she put together in this post.

Glam Hungry Mom: Andrea Bai is awesome. She has a beautiful family and an awesome blog. I recently signed up to be a sponsor for her blog and am so happy I picked hers. She has been the sweetest person to work with and I can’t say enough good things about her. One of my favorite posts of hers recently was her flawless face tutorial. I’m all about making my skin look better so this was great!

Gabrielle Bernstein: I first learned about Gabrielle Bernstein from Heather and I can’t thank her enough for introducing me to her world. I’ve since picked up her two books (Spirit Junkie and Add More -ing to Your Life) and loved them both. She typically blogs with a vlog weekly and always has something interesting and inspiring to share. She also has a new book coming out for the new year, May Cause Miracles, which I can’t wait to read. One of my favorite posts of hers was her vlog on how to handle feelings arising from the Sandy Hook shootings. Watch the video here.

Mix and Match Mama: Shay Shull has a great blog in Mix and Match Mama. She is always coming up with the most delicious looking recipes but I especially look forward to her dinner tonight posts to get inspiration for my own meals. I love the flavor combinations in a lot of her recipes and most of them just sound amazing so it is definitely worth checking out. One of my favorites posted recently is her recipe for Christmas Crunch Cake.

Hey Gorgeous: I am in love with the design of this blog. Rhiannon is actually a wedding planner and blogs about the weddings she creates, however I am in love with her design style, pictures, and just the overall feel of her blog. Although I am nowhere close to planning a wedding I just love checking here for updates from her latest endeavors. I also secretly love the movie The Wedding Planner and have forever been interested in the jobs of wedding planners simply because of the movie!

Marie Forelo: Marie Forleo is pretty amazing! She has an amazing business coaching business, has written a successful book, and is a dancer. What’s not to love?! She offers amazing advice in her videos posted weekly on her blog. Not only does she have great advice for business coaching but she is also a successful life coach. I will be joining her for B School in March and I cannot wait! A great great video of hers is here: The Downside of Gratitude.

Fierce Fabulous Free: Nisha Moodley writes a fabulous blog on her website where she empowers women to find freedom in their lives. This post in particular on self love has made me a dedicated reader of her blog and I always look forward to her updates in my email. I’m so happy to share her content with you for it is truly inspiring.

Also I am a part of a giveaway Andrea over at Glam Hungry Mom is hosting today. You can find all the info over on her blog but if you’re interested you can enter for a free month of one on one email coaching with me!

What are some of your favorite “must read” blogs I may not have discovered yet???

I love that Essie color!
I’ve been searching my local grocery stores for Amande yogurt for a long time now and haven’t had any luck. I typically just go with TJ’s coconut milk yogurt or the SO Delicious brand of coconut milk yogurt.
