Blogs Worth Reading with a Glass of Moscato

Standard
Blogging and coffee

Or coffee, or tea, or other delicious beverage. Reading in bed is a plus.

Note: These are blogs that are so good they merit being read with a delicious beverage.  Not so bad that they need Moscato to mitigate the effects.

Not as much time for a long blog post today (I have lots of “real work” to do!) but I’ve been wanting to direct people to some of the blogs I read on a daily basis (and boy, DO I).  These writers are well worth your time.

Blogs I Read Daily/Weekly (in no particular order, and not including all of them!)

Conversion Diary: Obviously.  I only reference this blog every single post.  So often I’ve opened Jen’s site only to read a post that gives me the encouragement or advice I needed.  Favorites include: 21 Survival Tips and Openness to Life (never understood this concept until I read it here).

Gal Meets Glam: I’m not going to put you through the sheer number of fashion blogs I check every day, but this one is by far my favorite.  Julia describes her style as “classic, feminine, and colorful.” Her outfits are unique but not too out-there.  You’ll love her. I promise.

The Evangelista isn’t really a fashion blogger. She does cover style but she does so in a way that reminds readers (and I need it sometimes) of its proper place in our lives.  She also writes very honestly about her own faith journey.  Really, really good stuff.

Mysteries and Manners is my best friend Maura’s blog.  She writes so beautifully, and her insights make me miss sharing a room with her so much! So lucky to have her as my friend.  This post alone completely revitalized my prayer life.

Speaking of friends, Verily is not a blog, but a fashion magazine with some opinions and articles I seriously respect.  For one, it’s literally the only publication I’ve ever read/seen that has addressed how difficult it can be to maintain friendships with girlfriends after you get married.  I mean, am I the only one with this problem?? I don’t think so.  Verily writes for “the woman you are, not the woman you should be.” Amen. Plus, they say everything you want to say to your daughter one day but sound way cooler doing it.

La Luz de Fe: Oh my gosh.  I feel a little like a stalker when I read this blog, but a stalker who is being turned into a saint because of how wonderful the person she’s stalking is.  Teresa (shares my name, which is an honor) went to UD with me and has since married and had a teeny baby.  I don’t think we’ve ever spoken, but her posts are joyful and beautiful. They make me want to live better!!

Wellness Mama: Only just now getting into this health/lifestyle blog but it has some of the best writing on the Internet!! That’s a bold claim.  Read this article about coconut oil and tell me if you could make it sound half as good.

Other blogs I should read with a glass of Moscato? (Or some other wine. Maybe I’ll do a wine and blog pairing series.  Only problem being I don’t know anything about wine). Blog and/or wine suggestions are welcome!

About rachelandreesa

We are two people. One is Rachel. The other is me, Teresa. Rachel didn't want to write the introductory material so you're stuck with what I come up with. Hahah! We both just graduated from the University of Dallas with a degree (Two, actually!) in English. We rocked at it. Both us. Respectively. In totally and completely different ways. Okay moving on. Rachel is blonde. I am not. Rachel has brown eyes (hazel eyes she says. Do you want to write this Rachel?!?). Okay we'll post a picture forget the rest. In conclusion, there is no good reason for us to start a blog, and there is even less reason for us to do one together, besides a joint tendency to interpret life in a literary fashion... TO A RIDICULOUS DEGREE. IT'S RIDICULOUS. Furthermore and finally, there are rules for reading our blog. It's a game. The game starts now. You have to score one thousand points. If you do that, you take home a tank with a big gun. Each day we will announce the scores from that loudspeaker. The one who has the fewest points will have to wear a sign that says "Jackass" on his back. There are three ways to lose points. One, turning into a big crybaby. Two, telling us you want to see your mommy. Three, saying you're hungry and want something to eat. FORGET IT!
