(BTW, if you guys see any particularly cool posts or giveaways, pretty please shoot me a link at respecttheshoes(at)live.com and I'll feature it here!)

Brides always look especially stunning on their wedding day - and particularly so when they can wear a gorgeous gown of their own design - via Alix from the cherry blossom girl:

Some blogs are just visually stunning and can make the most mundane things feel like something out of a fashion editorial - via Jane from Sea of Shoes:

Yes, I do yoga, but I'm fairly certain my version of yoga differs greatly from that of the gal I'm unofficially calling "Miss Super Yoga Guru" (in much awe here) - via Valerie at Red Vines for Breakfast:

I'm always interested in seeing what treasures people like collecting - via Heather at Speckled Egg:

Bunny buns! 'Nuff said - via EpiCute:

I've mentioned before how I love folks who draw, and especially artsy people who can accompany their OOTDs with some cute personalized work - via Linda from little tin soldier:

    <3, Mimi

  4. Hello!

    Just came across your blog from JoAnn's at Sidewalk Chalk and I'm glad I did! Your site is awesome!

    I know I just started but would love for you to check it out!


  5. That wedding photo is really cute.:D

    Thanks for all the links!:D

    Beauty. Fashion. Interior Design.
    & Life According to Marie.

  6. Wow!That's a lot of giveaways! Love little tin soldier's ootd and illustration. Just lovely.


  7. Love Sea of Shoes, such great fashion inspiration!

  8. These are all such great features, I'm going to check each and every single one out further!! Seriously, I have nothing else to do right now, lol.

    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  9. Cindi - I feel the same way! I would want a little family of them in different sizes just to sit on my counter for my viewing pleasure. If I ever tried to make them, in no way would they ever resemble any type of animal!

    Thanks, Tricia - I've found a lot of cool blogs just trolling through other people's blogrolls!

    Mimi - I know what you mean, it seems almost like a fantasy wedding.

    Thanks for visiting, 20 York Street - I've been on your blog recently making comments at your cute pictures and will definitely be back for more!

    Thanks, Marie - I hope you win something cool!

    Thanks, Melanie - bloggers are generous. I was nervous after the first week that I wouldn't be able to find more giveaways but they keep popping up!

    Jessica - I enjoy just going through Sea of Shoes and staring at the rich pictures. Sure it's not realistic every-day wear, but I feel like I'm flipping through a magazine on her site!

    You crack me up, OneCraftyFox. How else do you think I dig all these sites up - I obviously spend way too much of my free time surfing blogs! :o)

  10. Jane kills me, she is literally the most stylish girl. It's almost embarassing to be so jealous of a girl that is still in high school!! The pics she had up this week were amazing. She's always a highlight of my blog reader.

  11. One of my faves is Linda's blog @ Little Tin Soldier. Her pictures and outfits are always so cute and creative. The bunny buns are hilarious! Thanks for sharing all of the great finds.

  12. Nice blog choices, I especially like the last 2. :)

  13. Hi Lisa,
    Did I tell you I browsed through your archives and I think its brilliant! Plus you've
    got incredible style, plus you are charming and witty, plus you write really well, plus and more plusses!

    Thank you for leaving comments on my blog, I really appreciate it!

  14. Becca - That's right, I forget that gal is still in high school! Ugh, you DON'T what to see how I dressed in high school - and I don't think I'll ever be cool enough to make high fashion look good. :o}

    Thanks, applesandpencilskirts. Cool blogs obviously exist regardless of how vastly popular or not they are - plus considering what is "cool" is so subjective, so it's good to know I'm not completely off the mark sometimes!

    Thanks, Stylestance!

    Aw, thanks so much, 20 York Street. Don't go too far back in my archives, my early blog posts and photos were awful!

  15. LISA! Thanks for the shout-out! You're so sweet. xo

  16. Thanks for visiting, Linda, I think your blog is awesome and a lot of gals agree too! :o)
