Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me link up #8

Hello and welcome to my second link up of “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” (click on the link to view older featured bloggers) and let me tell you I am having a lot of fun with it. I enjoy reading other blogs and being inspired, but as promised I chose 5 bloggers who linked up to feature this time around (thank you to all 23 that linked up to my first) and you could be one of 4 or 5 featured next time, just follow the rules below, link up, visit some of the other bloggers linked up and have fun. I can’t wait to see your posts. Here are todays featured bloggers. Enjoy!


One of the sweetest bloggers I have gotten to know is Cynthia of and so when she linked up one of my favorite fall looks I knew I needed to feature her. Cynthia is a mom and believer and follower of Christ and she posts about her children and love of fashion. I admire how she choose items from of old in her wardrobe for this shoot and mixed it with newer and trendier items to create a beautiful sky colored palette. I also admire Cynthia’s photography each time she posts and just loved the shots captured in this particular outfit inspired post. You can check out her original post here to read more.


Jennie of showcased a cute polka dotted dress that I just adored.  I not only love polka dots but I loved how she styled her dress while also keeping up with her love and blog site name pocketfulofpolkadots. Jennie is a mommy of 4 boys (one just got married recently) and a Pomeranian doggy. She also likes not only polka dots but adding hints of colors to her otherwise love of black. You can view her original post here.


Many of you may not know this, but I do have a darker, more gothic side to me. As much as I love cute things like children, and animals and books I also adore movies by Tim Burton and books with alittle more creep to them and imagination like books by Ronald Dahl. So when Melissa G of posted a picture of her and her new skull studded purse I was like “yes please!” not only is the purse cute, but it adds an edgy motorcycle babe vibe to an otherwise chic girl about town in shorts and flip flops look. I am also enjoying the look of Melissas kimino and I can’t wait to view how she will style it in this fall weather. Melissa is a wife and momma to a sweet little 2 year old boy and she likes to blog about fashion, beauty and personal style.  You can view the original post here.

Britt of posted a delicious and EASY recipe that I couldn’t wait to try and did. Pecan Pie muffins. Yes, and they were pretty good when I made some (I don’t have any photos of my muffins made, sorry). My hubby liked them and eventually my 2 year old son enjoyed them, but it took a few bites for him to feel that he liked them, but check out Britts’ post here to see some more yummy goodness, get the recipe and try it for yourself. Britt is a God-fearing believer, mommy to four children (three boys and a daughter) and works along side her husband on a cattle ranch. She likes to blog just about anything.


I am enough

I was so encouraged to read this post by Sarah of, “I am not enough..” which reminded me that I am not enough with Jesus. We are made to believe by the world (or satan) that we are either not good enough, or that we are prideful and ARE good enough, when in reality we are only enough with Christ in our lives. Sarah reminds women that we don’t have to strive to be the perfect mom, employee, DIYer or what the world considers to be good enough. You can check out her original post here.  Thanks Sarah for the encouragement! Sarah is a mommy to three children and in the process of adopting a little girl from China (and since I have 10 siblings adopted from Asia, Sarah’s process of adoption rings true to my experiences, and I can’t wait to see her beautiful new daughter on her page soon).

  2. Thank you for featuring me, Rachel! I’ll admit that I was hesitant about featuring this bag, but it’s great to meet people whose style is similar to mine. I love pretty things, but somethings you just have to share your edgier side! *winky face*
