Dressing For Disney Randomness - Five (Non-Disney) Blogs I Love + Their Disney Posts

Hi! Remember me?

I know I've been away from the blog for a while, with wedding and honeymoon and all. And all of that is coming to this space soon, I promise.

But I'll be honest, I haven't really been motivated to blog. Which sucks. I want to share our simple but special wedding and our AMAZING Disney Cruise honeymoon, really I do. I just feel a bit overwhelmed about where to start. So that will come in time.

BUT I did think of this post as I was laying in bed last night and *bam*, one little spark of inspiration.

We all know about those wonderful Disney centric blogs out there, like Disney Tourist Blog, Touring Plans, and the Disney Food Blog, just to name a few. 

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite lifestyle bloggers (and one vlogger) who I read on a daily basis, and who each did a Disney feature at some point or another. I'll link to their main blog page AND the specific Disney entries. It always thrills me when bloggers I follow come to my favorite place. Hope you enjoy these ladies as much as I do!

I've written about dear Amanda a few times here and here. She's one of those supermoms who comes up with adorable crafty ideas for her two boys, has a home worthy of a Southern Living layout, holds down a real job, and more. She's awesome.

I love her site in general but we really bonded when she started posting Disney goodness. She has an entire category devoted to it with lots of good info. Recently she visited with her hubby and kiddos and is reviewing their Star Wars Weekends shenanigans here and here.

Drea wouldn't strike you as the Disney type. She's vegan, eschews commercialism and is pretty mellow. I love her vegan recipes, pictures taken by her four-year-old daughter Marlow, use and love of color, home decorating sense and more. I've been following her for years and have loved seeing her ups and downs (which she is very honest and open about) and watch as her daughter was born and grown. I've also added some killer recipes to my repertoire thanks to her- vegan mac and 'cheese' and garlic soup, anyone? Seriously, so so good. 

You can imagine my excitement when she posted a few Disney visits here and here. Just goes to show you that Disney can appeal to almost everyone.

She also has a cookbook coming out in October that I can't WAIT to get my hands on; you can preorder here for the low low price of $18. You won't be disappointed.

Ashley loves Lilly, always has insight into the best sales, has a really approachable yet stylish fashion sense, and blogs about all of this while living in Charleston with her hubby and four kids (who are all precious, by the way).

They visited WDW last year and actually, those specific posts gave me the idea to start Dressing For Disney, namely this post on her outfits for Disney. I'll forever be grateful. She chronicled their Disney days here, their trip report here, their FastPass photos here and their packing list here

4. The Londoner

Rosie is supermodel gorgeous and lives across the pond in jolly old England. She's constantly traveling the world and wearing the cutest clothes while doing it.

She visited Disneyland Paris around Christmastime last year; it was so fun to follow along on her trip here, here, here, here and here.

Christine is the cutest; she has a vlog that mostly focuses on her day to day life, with lots of Disney sprinkled in. She's funny and sweet and quirky. And she did my hair and makeup for my wedding, so obviously I love her.

You can watch her birthday weekend at Disney here, and her weekend at Port Orleans Riverside here. She's always visiting the World so be sure to check back for more.

Hope you found a few new blogs to follow. I'll be back soon with Star Wars Weekends recaps, wedding and honeymoon posts and more. Thanks for reading!

  3. I'm not going to lie--- I think of you every time I post about disney haha.

  4. Wow, this list is just fabulous! I love their Disney posts. The photographs are so pretty. I hope they all had a fun time over there. I got engaged in the Disneyland and it was dream come true moment for me. But I would get married at one of the domestic venues for weddings in Los Angeles by the end of this year.
