5 Of My Favorite Websites

I have a couple of websites that I like to check out on a regular basis. I don’t get to read them everyday, I mean, I have a full-time job, kids and a Social Media/ Networking addiction, so my “free time” is limited. But often the content of these sites helps me out with all of the above so it is a good excuse for me to check them out every once in awhile.

Divine Caroline is a site about women and since I’m a woman I can relate. The stories cover a wide range of topics from home & food to relationships to the world around us. Much of the content comes from the users themselves so if you’ve got something to say and no blog of your own, you should check out Not only do they have something for every woman, you may also be able to release your inner author.

Melissa does things a little differently than many interior design consultants. She believes in the philosophy that you should design your life first and then your rooms should reflect who you are. A beautiful home should be an expression of things that bring you joy and enable you to live your best life. Since my kids bring me joy, I try to design my rooms with them in mind (not that many people would call it design) and Melissa helps me out with that.

MicasaStyle is a great community of interior design lovers who share pictures of their rooms and get inspiration from other designers. Plus, this community loves to give out helpful hints and advice. The site has a unique labeling feature that lets people tag items in their photos. I love seeing a room with 10 or more items tagged because it usually answers my burning question, “Where did you get that?”

Design*Sponge forecasts new trends, offers lots of great store and product reviews and profiles of up-and-coming designers, plus so much more. It’s a great way to keep on top of what is coming up next in the world of home décor. the lack of capital letters on the site takes a bit of getting used to, but you won’t mind once you start experiencing the wealth of information that comes pouring out every day.
