Lifestyle bloggers are my favorite people to follow on social media – especially when they are honest, open, and dedicated to creating relatable content. I’m so excited to share 10 of the most organic lifestyle bloggers I follow online. Each of these women share a sincere peek into their lives. From style tips to beauty advice, home tutorials to motherhood hacks, these 10 real lifestyle bloggers are a happy distraction from the everyday.
And here we are, in no particular order… 10 Lifestyle Bloggers you should follow in 2021!
Cori Robinson // @dresscorilynn
This amazing Mom of four, Cori Robinson, is a Connecticut blogger with an eye for simple rustic home decor, mindful style (fellow J.Crew lover!), and intentional living. I love to watch her Instagram stories for fun DIY tutorials on rooms/furniture for her home, chats about health, and styling sessions.
Claire Wiley // @homewiththewileys
If you don’t know by now, one of my best friends (met through blogging) is the incredible Claire Wiley. She’s a Connecticut Mom of two with a knack for all things simply wonderful: cooking, gardening, and style. Claire has a great sense of humor, a clear passion for life, love, and community. Bonus: She shares stellar easy-to-follow recipes and tutorials weekly!
Nora Massey // @purely_nora
The word “pure” describes Nora Massey to a T. She’s a New England based clean life and style blogger with a silly side and bright smile. Nora radiates joy through sharing real moments from her every day life. From morning wellness check-ins to healthy recipes, from clean beauty tips to easy style, Nora shares an honest look at what’s in her life and on her heart.
Jee Young // @simplyeveryblog
One of the newest honest Moms I love to follow is Michigan based Jee Young from Simply Every Blog. I laugh out loud at her hilarious Instagram stories and become mesmerized watching her make Bento boxes for her three boys.
Val // @lovelyluckylife
Val may be the queen of Amazon finds that make your life easier. I started following Val while she was pregnant, coming on Instagram stories as her most natural self and talking about life with three kids and one on the way. She’s someone I’d love to know IRL because she never makes motherhood seem easier than it is.
Ruthie Ridley // @ruthieridley
Once a fellow Connecticut-ian, Ruthie Ridley is a life and style blogger living in California with her husband and three children. She blogs about fashion, family, faith, and her home with ease and a warm smile. I enjoy her I met Ruthie briefly through my cousin many years ago, before she was a blogger. She was as happy and kind as she seems in all of her Instagram stories!
More Real Lifestyle Bloggers to Follow
Carly Anderson // @lipglossandcrayons
I stumbled upon Carly Anderson about five years while when I was struggling with my postpartum body. She started a body confidence campaign called #justwearthesuit, encouraging women to embrace their beautiful bodies despite the shape or size. Carly lives in California with her little girl and husband, blogging about homeschooling tips, Disney, motherhood, and more.
Steph Leigh // @thehappeninghousewife
Stephanie is a Mom of four who is as real as they come (with amazingly awesome photos of her life). We connected this year through blogging and I love her passion for making everything look fun while being completely honest that motherhood can be a mess!
Lauren McBride // @laurmcbrideblog
Sometime way back when I started blogging in 2008, my cousin told me about a friend from nursing school who also had a blog. She described her as a DIY home blogger with an awesome sense of fashion. Fast forward to 2021, Lauren McBride is a life and style blogger sharing everything from beauty to style, REAL motherhood to her own line at QVC. Lauren is honest, funny, a fellow CT Mom, and always has something new (or a fun home project) to share on her blog and Instagram.
Kallie Branciforte // @kallie_branciforte
Connecticut lifestyle blogger and vlogger Kallie Branciforte is a Mom of one with a little girl on the way. She doesn’t sugar coat anything and always makes me laugh. She’s a wealth of knowledge when it comes to life-hacks and her letter board quotes are the BEST.
