new to me blogs

There are seriously so many great blogs out there that I feel like I could discover and love a new one each day. Usually what happens is this: I find a blog I really like and I say to myself "You need to remember this blog", then a few days later I say, "What was that new blog I liked?".  In an effort to give my poor memory a break I have decided to share a few new blogs that I have found and been into every so often. Here are two to get this party started.

Diversions
How I ended up there:
Stefanie left me a comment praising my boat naming ability and I followed the link to her blog. If I think you like Arrested Development I will probably visit your blog. That's the ♥elycia guarantee.

What I saw that made me stay:
Stefanie is a fancy nail painter and a colourful dresser so already that earns her bonus points in my books. I absolutely love the way that she edits her outfit photos (no there aren't really two of her). Also, Stefanie recently posted a really adorable vlog where she gets all David Bowie in Labyrinth (you know, with the glass balls). And...I am totally crazy about her accent! I want one. I am really happy I stumbled across Stefanie's blog!

Wild Olive
How I ended up there:
I saw Mollie's adorable button on Thursday's blog and I just had to pop over.

What I saw that made me stay:
I am crazy about Mollie's simple and super pretty blog design. Also, this tutorial is just so adorable! I really love the photography on Mollie's blog, it just looks so bright, and clean which makes me want to look at everything she is posting no matter what it is.

I hope to share a few more blogs as I stumble across them. Have you found any blogs lately that you really love?

  1. Two more blogs to follow (if my list of blogs followed were a bag, it'd be just about ready to burst now!) I love the outfit pictures in Stephanie's blog, theyv been edited marvelously (I found myself staring at them wondering how she did them so well!)

  2. This is fun. I like that you also explain how you found them. It gives me new ideas to find new bloggers myself!

    Don't look at me, still need to start up a little bloggy myself :p

  3. I hope you do posts like this more often! (As if I really need even more things luring me deeper into the internet) Still, that multiple-me photography is awesome!!

  4. I love this. I'm always looking for new blogs to add to my reader and I definitely trust the opinions of the bloggers I already love.

  5. I totally agree with you Elycia! I'm devoted to my BlogLovin' roll. Every time I see a red number appear I *have* to click on that blue plus sign! I wouldn't be able to keep track of all you lovely ladies if there was no BlogLovin'. {Oh, and I was definitely not paid by BlogLovin' to give them all that praise :) .}

    And to answer your question, YOUR one of my new favorite blogs! Kaylah too! I love it when the two of you pair up.

  6. You should save them all in Google Reader, then you wouldn't forget.

    I love discovering new blogs, and I love yours, our tastes seem really similar, so I pretty much admire everything you post.

    Keep up the good work. x

  7. I love that you explained what made you stay and read and add them to your blog reading pool. It's really a lovely way to pay the blog love forward.

    That said, I can just see you getting inundanted with commenters with hopes of you visiting and loving their blogs! (I swear that wasn't my intention... really!) I just wanted to say that I liked the idea and might have to internet "borrow" (code for copy/steal) it!

  18. Thanks for sharing your new blog finds! I recently discovered Michelle from Will Knit For Food. http://www.willknitforfood.com/index.html
    She was delighted with my multi-talented -ness, and I checked out her blog, and I fell in love with the gorgeous photographs of her projects. (Also, anyone who knits/crochets/sews is instantly awesome in my book)

  19. Wow, two more fabulous blogs to follow - thanks! I was inspired to think more about how I photograph myself, by a post you wrote a while back on how to take great photos. Since then I've been playing around with more than one of me in the photo like Stefanie...hers are WAY better though! x
