Maud is the lovely owner and creator of My Passion Projects, a blog where you can find so many resources on writing, self-help, exploration, and personal development.  The layout of My Passion Projects is so clean and feminine, which is something I love! Maud has really put so much heart into My Passion Projects and I know you are going to love it as much as I do.  There are also freebies and tips, so you have no reason to not check out Maud’s site! The link is in the blog title! (*wink*) Two of my favorites on MPP are the Starters Guide To Living Healthy and 10 Highly Inspirational TED Talks.

I’ve Found Waldo

Melina, what a darling! Her blog I’ve Found Waldo is so chic and I love all of the bullet journal posts she has.  I really admire people who keep bullet journals because that stuff takes commitment.  Melina is an overall fun person and I love her social media feeds.  Two of my favorite posts on I’ve Found Waldo are 2018 Bullet Journal Set Up and 2018 Skincare Routine .

Born To Be Bright

Sofia’s blog Born To Be Bright is everything I love in the blogging world.  Her site layout, the themes, and the vibes from BTBB are stellar and I love how you can see all the though she puts into her blog.  I also really like supporting bloggers who have been around for a bit and Sofia started blogging back in 2013.  One of my faves on Born To Be Bright is Stay Moisturized This Winter because heavens know I need it!

Soulful Seeds

Zahra’s blog Soulful Seeds is a great site for how to live a great life and grow spiritually.  From forming healthy relationships with food to killing 5 bad morning habits, Soulful Seeds has many resources to help you along in your spiritual journey.  Zahra’s site is so chill and gorgeous and she is so welcoming. Check out Zahra on Twiter and Pinterest for even more inspo!

Beauty Folio

So I know what you are thinking: “Mimi, what’s Beauty Folio?” Well, since you asked, Beauty Folio is the gorgeous creation from Emma, natural beauty lover.  Her blog is beautiful and I love her posts on Glossier, beauty boxes, and product reviews.  I always love reading about natural beauty products or ethically made products because if there are good products to replace some of the brands I currently use, I am all for it.  Make sure to connect with Emma on her Twitter and gorgeous Instagram feed!

The Thrifting Ginger

I love book bloggers and YouTubers because they have such a fun blogging category.  They can get lost in a book and then have an outlet where they can tell everyone their thoughts.  Plus by reading a book blog post on a book that I may want to read, I can get a better insight on the book itself and determine if I still want to read it or not.  Raylynn at The Thrifting Ginger does just that and her blog is so enjoyable to read.  I particularly love her post on Dancing for Degas. She also loves thrifting (if you couldn’t tell by the title!).

Homebird Hang-Ups

Animals, books, mental health, and home…sounds like a great blog, right? The answer is yes, yes it is.  Homebird Hang-Ups is a blog that has all of that and more in one place.  Claire is a great person and I love seeing her journey through blogging.  Two of my favorite posts on Homebird Hang-Ups are You OK Hun and St. Lucia Likes, Loves, and Loathes.  You can also find Claire on Instagram (trust me, you’ll want to follow her feed!)!

That’s all of the blogs and bloggers mentioned in this part of the Glitz and Glitter Spotlight! The third part will be out soon and I can’t wait for you to see the other blogs!

I hope you all have a great week and a fabulous weekend!

Blogmas | Day 5

Happy Saturday, babies!

Today’s Blogmas post is a great one and a collaboration with one of my favorite bloggers, Cait from Lipsticks and Acrylics.  She is tackling a holiday inspired drink and I tried my hand at a dessert! Make sure to check out her post!

When I was trying to find a good recipe for this collab, I took to Pinterest and searched the thousands of holiday recipes they have.  I needed something easy and quick, as the days leading up to today were extremely busy for me.  I found a recipe for Gingerbread Truffles and headed to the store!

These truffles are so incredibly easy to make, the most technical part being dipping them in white chocolate.  I didn’t add as much cinnamon or ginger as the recipe called for because I didn’t want to overpower them.  I also didn’t have any molasses but I did have maple syrup and it worked great!

I also took most of the truffles to a bowling party we had last night and they were all gone by the end of the night! If you have a holiday party to go to, these little babies are a delicious addition to a dessert table!

I also added some red and green sprinkles for holiday pizazz! If you take photos of your truffles, make sure to have good lighting and don’t wait until it is completely dark outside like I did!

Thanks for reading and happiest of holidays! Make sure to check out Cait’s post here!

Blogmas | Day 4

Things I Learned From Christmas With the Kranks…

I love Christmas and all that it stands for. Some of our family traditions involve watching our favorite Christmas movies and my personal favorite is Christmas With the Kranks.

Today’s post is a blogger collab with Phy. She is writing about the same theme but with a different movie. Go check her post out!

Christmas With the Kranks is my favorite holiday film because I find it to teach a few things. Here are two incredibly important reasons why I love CWtK.

  • It shows the importance of thankfulness and saying “Thank You”.

In the film, Luther has a difficult time thanking everyone for their help in creating a picture perfect party last minute due to his daughter’s surprise visit. He knows that his attitude was unkind and saying a simple “thank you” was so incredibly humbling, he couldn’t find the heart to do it. “Thank you” was kind of like an apology.  Sometimes saying “Thank You” is hard, but is shows someone that you are truly appreciate of what they did for you.  Luther’s neighbors didn’t have to help him and Nora out.  They helped them because it was mainly for Blair. 

  • Acceptance of others and their opinion.

After Nora and Luther tell everyone that they are skipping the holiday to go on a cruise, their friends instantly acted like a major crime was being committed. What their friends failed to realize was that Nora and Luther were spending their first Christmas without their daughter. It was going to be hard to celebrate without her with them. Not everyone celebrates Christmas and that is okay.

What are your favorite Christmas films and lessons they teach? Let me know in the comments below!
