#BloggersBeLike: 9 Things [Lifestyle] Bloggers Appreciate

  In other words, give us any of these and we will love you.

  1. Succulents
  Because yes. If you don't have succulents in your home then you actually can't sit with us.

 2. Peonies. But if push comes to shove, fresh flowers {preferably in mason jars}will do.
I don't know who gave peonies permission to be so gorgeous but I'm not complaining.

 3. Monograms
 Because they're kinda awesome. No questions asked.


4. Pretty journals and planners
Having our lives and blogs somewhat organized is essential.

 5. Coffee
Even though I'm not an avid coffee drinker, this doesn't need an explanation. Apparently "coffee is a hug in a mug", and who doesn't like hugs?

 6. White spaces
Is this just me? White bed sheets, blankets and walls are the winners. All day. Every day.

 7. Water-color and hand-lettered prints
Inspirational prints around our creative spaces make us more awesome bloggers. It's scientifically proven.

What would our Instagram photos be like without our dearest VSCOcam? I'm not quite sure.

and last but not the least

 9. Pumpkin Spice Lattes + Fall
Living in Kenya, pumpkin spice lattes are not a thing {or maybe I'm not in the loop?}, much less the season of fall. It's either really hot and dry, or it's rainy and cold.
But it's definitely something I've seen a lot these past few weeks with bloggers from the States.

This was such a fun post to do but that's all I can think of. These are my own observations and don't apply to every blogger.
What other things do bloggers appreciate? I hope your weekend has been relaxing!

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him and strengthened in the faith as you were taught and overflowing with thankfulness.

  1. Haha everything on this list is spot on! :)

  2. Haha! That's so true! Everyone seems to get on the same bandwagon about these things. Although, I don't like Pumpkin, so I won't be having a PSL anytime soon

  3. Spot on! I love white spaces and layouts. My planner is also my whole life.

    A lot of bloggers also love minimalism & perfectly planned calendars/organization! Great post!

  4. Haha I literally just mentioned pumpkin spice lattes in my blog post. Greatest. Ever.

  5. Yes! This is such a true list!

  6. Yaay! I'm so glad cuz I thought I would be wrong with a few of them!

  7. Ah, but great minds think alike? I say yes.

  8. There's definitely some things us bloggers can all agree on. I'm not feeling this Pumpkin Spice Latte thing either!

  9. Thanks Ms. Dezzie! Ah yes, minimalism is also one of them. :D

  10. Hahah! Are they that good? :O

  11. SCORE! All these things literally came into my mind just as I was about to fall asleep. So glad we can all relate!

  12. Planners. Coffee. Flowers in Mason Jars.

    This is brilliant.

  13. Great list, <3 pumpkin spice lattes!

    amen to coffee and planners! love it. great post!

  15. Succulents, yes. Just propagated mine yesterday!

  16. This is spot on. I'm a blogger, but I don't have any of these things except coffee, haha! I'm working on the succulents (when my husband and I finally buy our own place) and the monograms

  17. You are so spot on, it makes me laugh! I so love this. :) VSCOcam is my bff.

  18. Haha! I thought the monogram thing was just a southern girl thing... maybe it's a blogger thing too!

  19. I'm one of those weird people that doesn't like coffee. But I love the smell. So that counts!

  20. haha! This whole list is so true and I thought this was so funny! You cant be a blogger if you don't take pictures of coffee and flowers and planners at least once.

  21. Succulents are actually a must!

  22. Same here! Not weird at all, but it definitely counts! :D

  23. Too accurate! It just wouldn't be a normal week without taking photos of coffee/hot beverages, flowers and planners. #sorrynotsorry

  24. Yay! I'm glad I could make you laugh? I honestly don't know what my [instagram] life was before VSCOcam!

  25. Ahh you hit the nail on the head!

  26. These are fun. And so many of these are some of my favorite things.

  27. So cool! I totally agree with you =) Oh and the pumpkin spice lattes and fall time is like a BIG awesome hug all the time haha! Fall is like an awesome warm hug from God and lattes well they're just awesome!
