My Favorite Blogs

I mentioned before that I read quite a few blogs and I thought it would be fun to share my five favorites with all of you. But it may come as a surprise that despite my incessant chattering about food and recipes, not all of my favorite blogs are food blogs. So just in case any of you were looking for a few fun websites to check out, here are my top 5:

1. Peanut Butter Fingers


This healthy living blog follows 20-something, Julie. She is a full time writer who shares fitness tips and healthy recipes. Her style of writing is very casual and fun and she writes about everything from race recaps to wedding planning tips. Ever since I got engaged myself, I’ve loved going through her wedding recap posts to read her tips about everything from dress shopping to cake tastings.

Meals and Miles


A few weeks ago I was reading this blog and Eric asked me if it was “one of my food blogs or one of my running blogs?” but it happens to be both! Meals and Miles follows the life of Meghann, who shares running and cooking tips. What’s not to love? I especially love the fact that she shares her journey from out-of-shape post graduate to marathon runner. Meals and Miles is a great read whenever I get nervous about my first half marathon this October, because her story is so inspiring.

DIY Playbook


This is a blog I discovered just the other day, but has quickly become one of my favorites. It is a home decor blog aimed at 20-somethings who are decorating their first apartments on a budget. I especially love the fact that Bridget and Casey give tips on how to blend your own style with your significant other’s. Seeing as Eric owns more sports memorabilia than a typical sports bar, it will be great to have some tips to incorporate both of our styles into our first home together.

Espresso and Cream


Madison’s blog is actually the first blog I ever started reading. She shares recipes for healthy meals and decadent desserts, which promotes the balanced kind of attitude I try to have here on Miss Petite Sweets. I actually just shared one of her granola recipes. Plus she shares picture of her puppy, Nutmeg. And he is just too cute.

Cupcakes and Cashmere


Emily is like the modern day Martha Stewart. From decorating tips to fashion ideas and recipes, Cupcakes and Cashmeres covers a variety of fun topics. I love her entertaining ideas and beautiful pictures. And even though I may never be as fashion forward as her, it is definitely fun to read her style posts.

Have fun reading!
