Blog Tour: Who I'm Loving Now

My good friend Blaise featured me in a blog tour yesterday on his blog, Blaise the Baker. I thought this would be a fun way to not only repay the favor to him but to also feature some of the blogs I follow and love also! 

I decided to take a cue from Blaise and give a short bio on myself in case you end up here from another blog. 

My name is Shelby and I'm a 21 year old Hoosier! I just made a big move to Miles City, Montana to be with my boyfriend who took a job out here. I was lucky enough myself to land a great job that I love as an activities assistant at a local nursing home. I blog about fashion and beauty, as well as my new domestic endeavors and getting the most out of your money!

My favorite bloggers:

Blaise at Blaise the Baker

Blaise and I have known each other for almost our whole lives because we grew up in the same tiny town. We have been there for all of each others writing endeavors and he has been such a big supporter to me. Blaise is an awesome baker and chef and is currently in the process of writing a cook book. He features a lot of his delicious recipes as well as his favorite food blogs and cookbooks. He also has an "Ask Blaise the Baker" segment and is a great person to go to if you have any cooking questions!

Ally at Preppy Little Lesbian

I found Ally's blog through the Her Campus Blogger Network and I have loved it since day one. She writes about a variety of topics and personal experiences. Preppy Little Lesbian is a must read for anyone who is in high school or getting ready to go off to college! She makes sure all of the posts are personal as well as informative and has recently started a guest post series every Sunday. There is definitely something for everyone!

Danielle at Goodwillista
Goodwillista is probably one of my top five all time favorite blogs. I have recently gotten into thrifting myself and she is big reason why! Danielle features a lot of awesome tips for getting good deals and also shows that you can have style and dress well and for cheap! I'm so glad I found her blog because it inspired me to take the plunge and go to Goodwill, I will probably thrift there on the regular now. By regular I mean once a month because I live about 150 miles from the closest one! ( More on that later..)

Abbie at The Pink Paperdoll

Abbie is another blogger I found through HCBN. Abbie is a fashion writer and has a very unique vintage style that I love! She also features other fashion bloggers so it's a great place to go for fashion inspiration. She also shares a lot of her personal passions, i.e. Irish dancing, and also causes that she supports. Abbie also offers a lot of insight into decorating and DIY. The Pink Paperdoll is the perfect blog to visit if you are in need of some inspiration!

Montana in pictures.

I plan on writing a separate post about life in Montana but for now I wanted to post some pictures I have taken so far. Hope you enjoy!

Happy to be back with this handsome boy!

Bluest skies you'll ever see.

Dad was braver than I am!

A bit of a size different between Dad and Evan. 

Dad before we had to send him back to Indiana. :(

Keep an eye out for more posts about our apartment and my domestic adventures!
