Blogs and Instagram are so much a part of our daily lives and while I do believe in having a healthy balance with social media, I have been introduced to so many great ideas through my favorite blogs and instagram accounts.  I literally drool over the pictures of beautiful interiors, fashion and delicious food.

One of the first blogs I started following everyday was The Simply Luxurious Life.  Reading it, I was  inspired to start my own blog and talk about things that matter to me.  The blog was started about six years ago by Shannon Ables and provides endless inspiration for living a luxurious life on an everyday income.   Shannon recently released a book called Choosing the Simply Luxurious: A Modern Womans Guide.

Next up is Tory Daily.  Tory Daily is The Tory Burch Blog and since I love Tory Burch clothes, shoes and accessories, it would only make sense that I would also love the blog! I have discovered so many new things and ideas from the broad range of categories that include style, beauty, culture, travel, entertaining, music, and sport.  The photography is stunning!
