Welcome to the Monthly Coffee, a little linky party hosted by me and Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos.
This party is all about sharing those fabulous blogs that you've read this month. Let's grow our blogger community by sharing the best posts you've come across. You'll find new blogs to read, and we'll all make new friends.
So pour yourself a steamy beverage, grab the button and share your favorite reads this month. That said, here were my favorite reads lately:
I have been following Heather's journey to get fit since it began, and I was happy to see that she shared on her blog Glitter and Gloss her tips for eating clean(ish) and what a typical day of meals looks like for her. It's refreshing to see someone making serious strides in their health without becoming a robot about their diet.
I always find myself a little down when the holidays are over, and we just have days and days of gray winter weather. It was a nice little surprise to find Jen's list of ways to beat the winter blues over at JVKom Chronicles; she's got some great ideas for a little pick-me-up (and they don't involve spending money).
As you may know, my word for this year is Achieve, so I've been keeping my eyes open for ideas to help keep my goals in front of me, especially as the newness and drive of January wears off. Luckily, Krystal from Sunny Sweet Days has several ideas to help stay on track, using just a few items from the Dollar Tree.
Kimi is always honest and upfront when she talks about blogging as a business on her blog Kimi Who? And in this post, she talks not only about earnings but also about the expenses, which is something that so many bloggers don't share. Blogging can be really rewarding, but the net profit isn't always huge.
I have been doing a lot of crocheting of projects with hearts lately to finish up some orders from December, and now I'm hunting a few new projects for Valentine's Day. I think this slouchy hat from Whistle and Ivy is just the cutest. Wouldn't you love to receive this in the mail?
