Millennial moms and blogging go together like muffin tops and toddlers. In honor of Mother’s Day, we’re setting you up with a fresh batch — of mom bloggers, not muffins.
We asked one of our new must-reads, Cooking with My Kid’s Rebecca Coleman, to name her fave; then we asked that one for hers; and so on, until we found ourselves circling the globe.
Cooking with My Kid
What It’s About: L.A.-based Coleman attempts to make 365 recipes in 365 days with her son, Gus, playing sous chef and her newborn (!), Dove, watching on.
Why You’ll Heart It: Coleman loves chow but is no food snob. The evidence? She uses store-bought pancake mix and coats chicken nuggets in Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers to delicious effect.
The Blog She Loves: Prudent Advice, by Jaime Morrison Curtis.
What It’s About: Curtis channeled her initial postpartum anxiety (damn hormones) into a collection of poetry, art, and wisdom for her now 2-year-old daughter, Scarlet. She also gets crafty on her other blog, Prudent Baby.
Why You’ll Heart It: It’s wise advice you’ll take to heart no matter your age. Preorder her upcoming book for a little “you” love.
The Blog She Loves: Ish & Chi, by Vivian Mansour.
Ish & Chi
What It’s About: Sydney-based Mansour started blogging while renovating her home and putting together a nursery for her son, Robert. It’s grown into a collection of DIY projects, before and afters, and a study in good taste.
Why You’ll Heart It: Fashion Fridays and her Etsy shop.
The Blog She Loves: The Happy Home, by fellow Aussie Belinda Graham.
The Happy Home
What It’s About: Graham, a former editor at Australian interiors mag Real Living and mom of Zak and Layla, documents her home renovation and decoration.
Why You’ll Heart It: Project ideas, design inspiration, and great finds presented with an editorial eye.
The Blog She Loves: Fryd + Design, by Jeanette Lunde.
What It’s About: Lunde’s blog is like a visit with an old friend. The Norwegian mom of two covers everything from interiors, meals, and, of course, kids Mathea (6½) and Alma (almost 1) in a clean, crisp, uncluttered way.
Why You’ll Heart It: Simple prose lets the images speak for themselves.
The Blogs She Loves: Bloesem and Bloesem Kids, by Irene Hoofs.
