Family and Lifestyle Blogs

I’ve got a plan.

It involves taking my little family on a vacation soon. Somewhere north that has water.

In the meantime, I find myself caught up in various lifestyle and family blogs. I wrote a few weeks ago about Summer Fun blogs.

This week, I’m in a similar vein. I’m just glad it’s finally summer.

1. The Artful Lifestyle Blog

The Artful Lifestyle Blog by Huff Harrington is a cool destination.

It covers art, decor and design, lifestyle, and travel. It’s my kind of place!

“What happens when two committed Francophiles, art lovers and design junkies get together over a bottle of red wine?” the blog asks. “A fine art gallery with a little je ne sais quoi is born, followed a few years later by its home furnishings and décor sibling.”

Posts I enjoyed reading: Summer Entertaining: Everything but the Feast, Our Favorite Outdoor Spaces, and In the Studio: Meet Artist Maureen Naughton.

2. A Cup of Jo

A Cup of Jo really speaks to me. It covers style, culture, motherhood, travel, food and life.

“Jo” is Joanna Goddard, who grew up in France, England, Michigan, and landed in New York, where she became a writer. Goddard and her family live in Brooklyn.

Posts to check out: A Breezy House in LA With an Epic Garden, What Food Do You Pack for The Beach?, and 16 Pretty Dresses to Wear to Weddings.

3. Tamarind Living

Tamarind Living covers luxury travel, artisanal cuisine, and design.

“We are committed to enhancing your global lifestyle with a curated collection of sophisticated recommendations, tips, and personal connections with international luxury brands and creative individuals to keep you informed and connected with key destinations’ unique offerings, first class venues and services, art and design by talented local artisans, and exceptional authentic experiences that you can access directly,” the blog says.

There’s so much pretty to look at here.

Some of my favorites: Meet Chef Hyde of Maggie Joan’s | A Young Talent to Watch, Vincent Sheppard Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Lloyd Loom Weaving, and An Inside Look at New Orleans’ Best Holiday Garden District Home Tour.

4. A Beautiful Mess

I feel like sisters Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman speak my language.

They’re the ones behind A Beautiful Mess: “a women’s lifestyle company focused on creating happiness every day through a homemade lifestyle. On this blog we share home decor projects, recipes, and crafts, as well as bits of our life here in the Midwest.”

This is a fun blog. From the art to the creative DIY projects, there’s something for everyone here.

Notable posts include Sparkling Hibiscus Sangria, 10 Incredible Ways You Can Use Witch Hazel, Creamy Strawberry and Avocado Pasta Salad, and Modern Toddler Bed DIY.
