Favorite Things Friday - Blog Love and Kitchen Candles

Today's Favorite Things Friday topic is Blog Love and Kitchen Candles. I don't have time to read a lot of blogs every day. I am lucky if I get a chance to glance at one or two a day. Some weeks I may only look at a couple. But, I really love blogs. There are some readers you can subscribe to that will allow you to put your favorite blogs on a list and you can see a condensed version of their latest blog post. I have tried this in an effort to be able to catch up on a long list of favorite blogs. But, I found that I really like to "visit" the blogs personally and see all the pictures and read more than just the most recent posts. If I am engaged in what I am reading, I may scroll back through the last few months worth of posts.

The Pioneer Woman's Home and Garden Blog - I could blog an entire blog post about how much I love The Pioneer Woman. I think everyone knows how much I love her recipes (and CANNOT wait for her new show on the Food Network to start Sat 8/27 at 11:30am eastern. Have you set your DVR yet?)
I recently introduced her to my neighbor, Allison, and she is also hooked! But, when I don't have a lot of time to just hang out on her website, just a few minutes time spent on her Home and Garden posts always make me happy. And she often does some really rockin' giveaways!

Another blog I try to pop over to when I can is Make and Takes. It is about craft, food and fun - three of my favorite things!
I get some great, really usable ideas and they often link to other blogs that I enjoy discovering.

I have posted about One Charming Party before, but when I need party inspiration, I always go here first. Sometimes, I just go here and decide I need to throw a party!

Making It Lovely is another blog I enjoy visiting from time to time. She puts together great outfits and great design ideas.

Shanty 2 Chic always inspires me to try creating things on my own, even if there are power tools involved! They also introduced me to some really great kinds of glue!

eighteen25 is a new blog I have started reading recently. I am really enjoying it. I love the ideas they share and the free printables!

What are your favorite blogs?

This week I have really enjoyed the kitchen candle I picked up at Target. It is from the Caldrea kitchen products line, which I also love and have been using for awhile now. The scent is Hibiscus Yuzu and it smells amazing! Target doesn't appear to sell it online, so you are going to need to visit your local store to pick one up. You'll be glad you did!
