Best Time of the Year

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.

LA Street Style

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.

Native Fox

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.

I like how she posts casual looks as well as dressy looks.
And, of course, she provides a variety of angels and shots to show off her outfits.
Another thing that I really like is that she doesn’t write too much. Some bloggers will go on and on about a certain subject and it can be way too much reading for a blog. When I think blog, I don’t think about a lot of text. She writes a short explanation of her outfit and why she’s wearing it, and what she is up to for the day. For a fashion blog, that’s really all you need (plus the brands and links to the clothes you’re wearing, which she does).
The author, Jennifer, also has posts of inspiration in which she posts a handful of things she really likes at the time. Most recently she posted about her top ten skin care products.
She gave an explanation of each product and why she likes it. When fashion blogs have something a little extra, it really adds to the blog.

The Big Picture

I have posted before about how I love great photography (but who doesn’t?!). What I have found this time around is an amazing current events photo blog.

This blog is called The Big Picture and tells “news stories in photographs.” The site is produced by a select group of photo editors from The Boston Globe. The majority of the images come from companies such as the Associated Press, Reuters, and Getty Images, who license them to The Boston Globe for their use. Other photos come from public domain sources such as NASA, and others from private photographers who share them with the Big Picture for one-time use.

All photos must be very good, high-resolution, newsworthy, free for use, and there must be a good amount of them from each subject. I love that they do this because we can see great photos of things happening all around the world from different perspectives.

Below are some pictures from a photo series they recently posted called “Harvest 2013” that looks at harvesting from around the world since mid-summer.

France

Georgia (the country)

Sometimes, no words are needed when there are great photos. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite news oriented blogs.
