Fall is my favorite time of year. The weather is gorgeous, it starts to cool down, and I can finally wear a sweater without sweating with one of my favorite scarves. The leaves change to beautiful hues of orange and red and the excitement of the holidays coming up puts me in a great mood. Fall is the inspiration for the next blog I am posting about: Autumn Cozy.
I have posted a number of times about picture blogs and this is another one of those. I have said time and again, “Who doesn’t love a pretty picture?!” And that rings true for this blog. Autumn Cozy is filled with beautiful pictures of fall. It is a great reminder of why I love this season so much. Looking at this blog is like stepping into the coziest room full of everything you love plus hot coco and fluffy blankets.
The author, who’s name happens to be Autumn, posts many different fall-related photos. There are a lot of fall dessert pictures:
And, of course, there are many pictures of the colorful fall leaves:
There are pictures of fall clothing, and I love fall clothing:
And plenty of fall coziness:
I could seriously spend hours on this blog scrolling through the thousands of pictures on it. There’s something about fall that makes me feel so comfortable, and looking at this brings that right to me on my computer screen.
I tend to like blogs that revolve around a certain city or place, which might be obvious since I follow so many NYC-based blogs. The next blog I am featuring is based in LA. It’s called Native Fox and is a street fashion blog.
I really like fashion blogs but many are unrealistic for, say, a poor college student like me. This woman does wear expensive clothing, but her clothes aren’t inaccessible to the everyday woman.
This blog is made by one woman who models her everyday outfits on the streets of LA.

It has been quite some time since I have blogged about New York City, but no worries, I still love it. I am graduating in December and, therefore, have been applying to (many, many) jobs. Since I have high hopes to go back to the city I fell in love with two summers ago, most of the jobs I’m applying for are in NYC. Needless to say, New York has been on my mind even more so than normal lately.
The woman who writes this blog (her identity is not part of the blog) will either post random things that make her love the city or will write longer-form posts that go more in-depth of why she loves NYC. I like that she combines both styles because sometimes I don’t want to do a lot of reading but more seeing.
In this post, she said she loved NYC for the creation of a new food genre: Japanese-Jewish food. This is matzo ball ramen soup from Shalom Japan, a new restaurant in New York.
The author also excepts pictures and explanations of why YOU love New York. You can submit them on her blog or you can instragram a picture with the hashtag #thisiswhyiloveny.
Ever now and then, I come across a blog that covers a wide variety of topics. That’s exactly what the blog The Pioneer Woman does.
You may know that The Pioneer Woman, aka Ree Drummond, has her own cooking show on Food Network known as The Pioneer Woman. She got a show on Food Network because of her blog, which has won numerous awards, and her best-selling cookbook. However, I discovered her on Food Network because I have a mild (more like huge) obsession with Food Network shows. I really don’t know why…
Later, I discovered her blog and man, oh, man does she do a great job blogging! She lives in the middle of nowhere on a cattle ranch with her husband and four kids. One might wonder how she has so much to blog about then. Well, I’m assuming living in the middle of no where with four kids forces one to come up with interesting stuff to do.
Her blog has a number of sections making it easy to search through this wide-ranging blog. The Confessions section includes photos and stories of her husband and children and the animals on the farm.
The Cooking section includes step-by-step photos of all the cowboy-friendly dishes she taught herself to cook through the years. There’s butter involved.
In her Photography section, Ree gives tips to starting photographers and photoshop tutorials.
In the Home & Garden section, Ree shows the step-by-step saga of a start-to-finish remodeling project of an old guest house on the ranch, as well as general home tips and photos of things she loves.
And in the Homeschooling section, she discuss the adventure of homeschooling four children on an isolated cattle ranch, hold regular “Smartypants” trivia quizzes so readers can test their brain matter, and share Words of the Day, interesting trivia, and occasional brainteasers.
There is so much on this blog. So many great recipes, so many amazing photographs, great stories, and more.
While this my not exactly be considered a blog, it sort of acts like one. In fact, most of the content comes from blogs. And I absolutely love it and am on it quite a lot. Let me introduce you to Pinterest.
The way Pinterest describes itself is “a tool for collecting and organizing things you love.” For a better description, it’s a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other users’ pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos. If you double click on photos, almost all of them lead to a website.
For instance, if you double click on a picture of a shoe, a new page might open with the website for where that shoe is from. On other instances, images might bring you to the blog where the image was originally pinned from.
Pinterest also has an easy pin button. If you are on a webpage and see an image you like, you can click the pin button, which is located at the end of the web address slot. When you click the button, the images on the page you are on pop up and you can choose the image you would like to put on your Pinterest page.
For me (and I know for many others), Pinterest inspires me. I get inspiration for clothing ideas, decoration ideas, food and recipes, weddings, pretty much everything. And I find things that I’ve never seen before. There are so many great recipes and DIY projects for anything and everything. I could, and do, spend hours on Pinterest.
I am definitely not the most creative person. Read: I am not creative at all. Whenever I see things my friends or bloggers make, I am completely shocked. Since I knew I needed a little help in the creative area, I started following do-it-yourself blogs, design blogs, decorating blogs, and basically any blog that would give me inspiration.
One of my favorite design blogs is called Little Green Notebook. The author, Jenny, is a decorator in New York City (this could be one of the reasons this design blog is my favorite). Jenny has done a ton of DIY projects and provides step-by-step demonstrations on her blog so her readers can do the projects themselves. Below are a few of my favorite DIYs that she has done. To see all of her DIY projects, click here.
I think the trim and the black paint make the room look way more sophisticated and nicer.
How to upholster an antique side chair:
Now the chair looks sleek, shiny, and new. I think it looks great!
Another part of Jenny’s blog that I love are her before and afters. I love seeing the photos before she decorates houses and then the photos after so I can see everything she did and transformed. Recently, Jenny decorated Joanna Goddard’s apartment (the author of A CUP OF JO, a blog I formerly blogged about). The before and after shots are lovely.
I think Jenny is so creative and comes up with such neat ideas for houses and tiny apartments. I also love that she incorporates her family into her blog, so that viewers can see that she can do all of these things while maintaining a family life.
