Paulina is a blogger that I found a few weeks ago and I’m so into her blog posts!

She lives in the Napa Valley in California. She’s a down-to-earth, fashion blogger. Her writing is so beautiful and flows so naturally. You can tell she absolutely loves her job and that writing and fashion is a huge passion of hers. Her Instagram is stunning too!

3 of her posts that I love are:

You can also find Shenska all over social media:

Also, she just started a YouTube Channel and I can’t wait to see what she does with it!

Paper Fury

Cait from Paper Fury is my favorite book blogger that I’m yet to find! Her personality really shines through in every post. Being a fellow bookworm and lover of all things dragons and fantasy I think we would get along very well. Also, if you haven’t seen her Instagram, YOU NEED TO! It is probably my favorite Instagram EVER! It’s so beautiful and colorful and absolute goals for Instagram. I mean come on, rainbows of color AND tons of books!? How could that go wrong? It also makes me REALLY want to start a #bookstagram. I’m thinking about maybe doing a traveling book Instagram. Would you be interested in that? Comment below any ideas.

Also, throughout her blog posts, she has TONS of plot ideas that sound so cool and make me want to write 1,000,000,000,000 books.

Oh, and one of my favorite tweeters (is that what Twitter users are called?) is Cait! Every time I see her tweets I get so freaking excited. She is so relatable and funny! You NEED to check out her twitter!

Yummy Little Things

Tanya is a blogger that I found a few months ago and I love her recipes and posts! She lives in Charleston, South Carolina and I love her Southern twist on everything! Growing up in Florida, I’ve always been partial to Southern heritage. Albeit, we say here that ‘Florida is so South it’s North.’ (Because Florida doesn’t have a lot of Southern Heritage. It’s a unique place to live because there are so many people and heritages that live here. We’re not really Southern.) Back to Tanya, I love her writing style and recipes! And you need to check her out!

3 Posts from Yummy Little Things that I love are:

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Coffee Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Yummy Little Things is on Social Media too!

The Confused Millenial

Rachel is another blogger that I found recently. Sorry, I don’t remember where I learned about her. But, her blog is amazing. (I follow so many blogs that it’s so hard to remember where I found different blogs. I should make a list. {*Makes mental note*]) I love her take on life and her writing style. her mission is to help millennials navigate the ‘adult world’ which I need more than anything.( LOL. #newadult.)

Also, Rachel is a fellow Floridian and I can’t help but feel partial to that. What can I say? I love my home state. (But, I want to leave as soon as possible because it’s so HOT here.)

3 Blog posts that I love from The Confused Millenial are:

How to Manifest Anything

How Millenials Can Figure Out What To Do With Their Life

Things I love August 2017

The Confused Millenial is all over Social Media Too. (Because, who isn’t these days?)

Facebook Page




Adkins Domain

Now, Elise Adkins is a blogger that I just found and I LOVE her writing style. She’s a small blogger like me. (I’m kind of partial to smaller bloggers because I know what it’s like to be one. And how incredible it feels to be noticed by other bloggers and how helpful it is.) She writes about a lot of the same things that I do: Thoughts, food, DIYs and more.


3 Posts from Adkins Domain that I love:

Think About Media

4 Insights About blogging

Rainy Inspirations – DYI Floating Shelves and Wood Stain


Adkins Domain is also on Social Media!




In Search of Sheila

Sheila is a blogger that I have followed for several months now. I love her writing and I have learned so much from her. Also, I don’t know why, but I love her blog name. It just resonates with me for some reason.

Oh, and side note, I attended her blogging workshop a few weeks ago and it was amazing! You NEED to follow her blog and join in on her next one. I learned so much from it! I can’t wait to use what I learned to help me work on my branding and the design of my blog to make it more cohesive and put together. And, she really knows what she’s talking about. Her blog success is proof that her strategies work.

Also, her facebook group is AMAZING! And, you should really join. She does lots of live sessions on there where she talks about all things blogging and branding.

Megan is another blogger that I found recently. I love her posts and writing style, but most of all, I love her content. It’s all so useful. She blogs about Mental Health, Social Media, Blogging, Coffee, and Lifestyle. (Which, as Y’all know, I’m into ALL of that.)

The Bucket List Project

My newest Blog obsession is The Bucket List Project. Like most people I have a bucket list of many things that I want to do before I die. Hopefully, in the years to come, Y’all will come with me on the journey as I accomplish many of them. I doubt I will ever complete every one of the items on my list because it grows almost daily.

This blog ‘The Bucket List Project’ is really cool because it’s all about one guy and his bucket list and his journey to complete every item on that list. Plus, he does what he can to help many people complete items on their bucket list! And, seeing him accomplish his goals really encourages me and makes me feel a little guilty about not crossing anything off of my list yet.

What is on your bucket list?

Soli Deo Gloria,

  1. Thank you so much for including me on your list of favorite blogs for August! I’m honored and flattered. I’m going to have to check out some of these other sites – they sound amazing! Thanks again, Heather!

  2. I love that you write about other bloggers and that you feature their blog and social
    media accounts. It helps the rest of us who don’t have a lot of time find great new bloggers and read their material.

  3. The Bucket List Project is such a great idea, definitely my favorite! I love all the pictures. So gorgeous!
    My blog is Lazy Sundays – slow down and find your happy.
    After working for 15 years in the same job, we found out our division was closing. I was devastated and feeling pretty directionless. I started reading about blogging and thought it would be a great way to have a creative outlet and focus on the happy in the world by writing about it and connecting with others. It has been so rewarding so far!
    My posts are about family, food, coffee and random fun things that happen in life!

    1. I love The Bucket List Project too! It is such an amazing idea!

      That’s cool! I can’t wait to check it out!

      I’m so glad you found blogging and are using it for a creative outlet!

      Ooh, I’m ecen more excited to read your blog!

  4. The bucket list project is my favorite! Gives me tons more ideas for my bucket list.

    Hey! I’m Ariel and I am the creator of Different Frame of Mind Blog. It focuses on traveling with little funds, medical and psychological conditions. I aim to inspire people to not let their conditions hold them back from doing stuff they want to do in life. 🙂 Here’s the link if you would like to check it out.

  5. Aww, thank you Heather for including me on this list of amazing bloggers! Everyone had such catchy blog titles, I felt totally compelled to click and check em out 🙂

    And that makes me happy that my name resonates with you! When I came up with it I was obsessed with how it kind of rolled off the tongue and sums me up as a person so much!

  6. Love this list! Yummy little things is my favourite.

    My blog is

    PUSH 25 Lifestyle offers a unique perspective on life and features topics such as Fashion, Home Renovations & Decor, Relationships, Career, Encouragement, Shopping, Local Company Profiles, Product Reviews, and other topics related to the life of a young adult woman

  7. The bucket list project is my favourite blogger on here and one I’ve followed myself for a while! It’s a really inspiring blog and I love that it encourages people to get out there and do some good and live life to the full!

    My blog ‘Travels of a Baby-vet’ is a blog about my life as a vet student and about the traveling I do for holidays and with my career. I hope to inspire a few more little vetlings, promote travel but in a way that encourages people to really experience the nitty gritty of a country and delve into the history and culture of a place. However I also think it’s important to inspire ecotourism and promote welfare friendly, sustainable practices, to ensure our beautiful planet is left for our future generations to explore :).

    I would love for you to check out my blog!

  8. I love the “blogs I’m loving” segment it really gives an opportunity to network and learn about other amazing bloggers and blogs. After reading your list I must say I’m loving Shenska. I’ve actually started following her because of the exposure you gave.
    I run a fashion blog, Miss Monèt, and my blog is dedicated to fashion in its many forms. I cover the latest in fashion news, designer of the month, fashion discussions, the art of fashion, and film reviews. I give a unique spin on the industry. I hope you can check it out.
    Thank you!

  9. I can see why you love all of these – I’ve signed up to them all too. Think my favourite so far is Paper Fury, but I am enjoying delving deeper into all of them. If you are keen to check out a food and travel blog, with stories and recipes from around the world then do check out
    So far, we focus on South America but South East Asia is coming verrrrry soon!
    Thanks for sharing these, can’t wait to see Your choices for September!

    1. IKR!? They’re all so amazing! Awww, you signing up for all of them makes me so happy! I agree, Paper Fury is such an amazing blog.

      I’m excited to check out your blog! It sounds really cool!

  10. My favorite is The Bucket List Project. You should check out his article “My anti-bucket list: things I don’t want to do before I die” and “90-year old woman says no chemo to travel the country” (if you haven’t already). Those are my two favorites.

    My blog is Making LOL. I started my blog as part of my healing journey after I lost the life that I had built for 16 years in the United States. I had to move to the other side of the world and started over from scratch in all aspects of my life. I want to inspire and encourage people to overcome adversity with grace and humor.

    Life is short. Let’s make Lemons Out of Lemonade and Laugh Out Loud on this journey we call life.

    1. Yessss, I love that blog so much. I’m so glad that so many other people love it too!. Ooh, I haven’t checked out those posts from The Bucket List Project, I definitely will be soon.

      Oh, wow! Your blog sounds really unique and neat. I can’t wait to check it out!

  11. It was actually hard to pick just one favorite since they all look really interesting, but the two that caught most of my attention were Searching for Sheila and The Bucket List project! Searching for Sheila makes me think of a mystery book, maybe that’s why it caught my attention so much. The bucket list project, wellI have my own long list too and it seems pretty cool and actually inspiring that he’s actually going after those things on his list!
    My blog is
    It is fairly new and it is a lifestyle blog, it started off as a bucket list item that I decided to pursue when my golden retriever passed away and I noticed so many items on my list that I had wanted to do with my dog or for him, never got crossed out…this motivated me to start my blog even if I didn’t know anything about blogging and sometimes barely have enough time to post. Okay, so before I start writing a whole page…(sorry if my comment is too long lol) I would love it if you could check it out! Bonne Chance!

    1. I agree with you. There are so many inspiring blogs out there. It was hard to limit myself to just 8 for this post. (If I get my act together, the September edition will have more blogs featured. I’m just bad at time management. LOL) I love both of those blogs too! You’re right! Searching for Sheila does sound like a mystery book.

      Oh, that’s interesting! I’m glad that you’re working on your bucket list. My blog was actually something on my bucket list too!
      I will definitely check out your blog! I’m really excited to read it!

  12. There are so many incredible writers out there, by posting your favorites it certainly is a huge help to narrow down great reads. Thank you for taking the time and energy monthly to post!

    I am a much older contributor to the blogging community, writing as ” according to Una”.. and I love reading and seeing the different viewpoints the younger generations have. Travel and people have always been a passion of mine, it’s great knowing so many others share and embrace the many incredible places and peoples of the globe.

    1. I agree with you completely, there are SOOO many amazing writers out there. I’m glad I could help you with this post! It’s one of my favorite ones to do and it makes my day to know that it helped you!

      Oh, that’s neat! Your blog sounds really amazing and I can’t wait to check it out!

  13. Heather, Thank you so much for choosing my blog and featuring it for me! Like you said, as a small blogger it is very exciting to get recognized. I also was excited to see you were doing this because I have started a similar idea. I am trying to give a brief feature of 2 or 3 blogs at the end of my posts, partially to help out other bloggers and partially to help grow my own following. Anyway, this is such a great idea. Thank you again and happy blogging!

  14. Love this blog post idea! I really enjoy In search of Sheila. Thanks for sharing all of these!

    My blog is about bucket list traveling, music, and my hot mess of an insight on life.
