Check Out Our Favorite Blogs

    Last week I told you about some great blogs to check out if you’re in graduate school or on your way there. This week I’ve continued to sift through hundreds of blogs to find the ones that will be most relevant and useful for you. Enjoy!

This Week: Fashion and Beauty

    Obsessed with fashion? So are the ladies of I AM FASHION, who drew the name of their blog from words once spoken by fashion legend Coco Chanel: “I don’t do fashion, I am fashion.” The bloggers, named Barneys Girl and Harrods Girl, chronicle their shopping exploits while keeping you in the know about the latest trends in clothes and accessories. Salivate over designer labels, and get some common sense advice about looking your best.

    If you’re on a tight budget and want to look good for less, visit THE BUDGET FASHIONISTA. This site follows news that will help you find great deals, but its best offers are the “Tips” and “Guides” sections, where you can find info like sample sale listings, see the “Top 10 Fashion Musts for Fall 2005,” and learn “How to Budget Shop” and “How to Create a Functional Closet” and much more.

    Also cost-conscious is STYLE BYTES, a great blog about fashion for regular women. What’s most unique about this blog is its extensive do-it-yourself tips, which show you how to make ordinary clothes into extraordinary clothes. It helpfully categorizes its listings into areas like “Beauty,” “Jewelry,” and “Shopping.”

    If you think beauty is only skin deep or, rather, than good skin is essential to beauty check out the blog at ULTIMATE-COSMETICS, which has tons of tips and information on skin care. For example, want to find out all there is to know about blackheads and how to get rid of them? This site is the place for you; its advice is practical and easy to apply.

    If you know of any great fashion and beauty blogs that I’ve missed, please share them with by commenting on this post. Thanks for reading!
