With the guest post series I hosted a couple weeks ago, I realized that for me, the most gratifying thing about blogging is discovering and connecting with so many other amazing people who just happen to share the exact same interests as you.

And with that in mind, I’ve decided that every Friday, I’m going to share a round up of some of my favorite posts published over the last week from around the blogosphere. Think of it as a Follow Friday for blogs I’m reading or discovering. My hope is that along the way, I can not only feature more bloggers here on this site, but also lead you, my wonderful readers, to other blogs you might really fall in love with.

So if you find yourself roaming the internet on Sunday morning with a freshly brewed cup of coffee, do give these blogs a look. And if you comment, please tell them I say hi!

Friday Link Love, Week of March 7, 2011

Here’s a perfect entertaining recipe: an asparagus and bacon risotto from Julip MADE that is the perfect spring time one-dish meal.

Roxy from My Cup of Te found the only appropriate/tasteful/not-horrifying pregnancy portraits I’ve ever seen.

I love sparkling water, so I was stoked when Alena from Oh, It’s Just Perfect! pointed me to these nifty counter-top sparkling water maker machines. Awesome, right?

Radiant Republic “razzle dazzled” me with this round up of rooms featuring bright pops of pink. Several of these pics were pinned to my interiors pinboards immediately!

It was such a joy to discover Sunshine on a Cloudy Day, and I especially dug this feature on the house that inspired The Great Gatsby — except it’s being torn down.

Kelly Frankel is a MASTER at finding diamonds in the rough on Craigslist. Here’s hoping she writes a tutorial on how she does it!

I am OBSESSED with this bedroom featured on SHELTER!

Stephanie from The Merry Way shared an absolutely delish looking curried fried rice recipe that’s perfect for a quick weeknight meal.

Go look at this post on Elements of Style. Check out the kitchen. See that fridge? I want that in my house someday.

Did you know I used to work at a Sur La Table? Well, thanks to The Social Secretary, I now know what to do with any extra tiny tartelette pans. (Gorgeous photo styling too, am I right?)

You must read this “manifesto” from Jamie Meares on i suwanee. I found it so inspiring. Slash, I want everything in her shop.

Are you reading KELLY MARKET yet? You should be. Her daily posts are so beautifully put together (note to self: continue honing Photoshop skills). I’m in love with this little art project she discovered. I want someone to do the same in SF!

And finally, something to think about this weekend: this thing I keep forgetting.

Enjoy these blogs and have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. Thanks for including me in your round up, Victoria! Love these other links – I’ll have to check them all out. Jamie’s manifesto is amazing.
    Happy Friday to you!

  2. Thanks for including me Victoria! I couldn’t agree more with your sentiments. As a rookie to blogging, it is exciting to become part of such a creative and supporting community of bloggers, let alone be exposed to so much inspiration!

    Happy Friday!
