My two favorite blogs this past month have been more centered around my ‘new’ interests: Tone It Up (TIU) and Snail Mail.
While Tone It Up has their own blog, I am enjoying Shelley’s Sea Shells & Sit Ups ‘unofficial guide’ (that’s what I’m calling it) to TIU. She started her blog as a way to document her TIU way of life. She blogs about different recipes, workout strategies, and even started selling fitness apparel. I follow her fitness Instagram (@tiu_shelley), and she always has inspiring photos, even if it’s just of her telling what she did for her workout that day. She has hosted a few challenges concurrently with the TIU ladies, and they have been a big hit. She is such an inspiration to the TIU community and I would encourage you to check out her blog, and if you’re ever in need of a quick workout, she has some Sweet + Sassy Workout ideas that make you break a sweat!
While I discovered that Instagram as a ton of pen pal ads and pictures of cool letters sent, I especially like the Instagram posts from Snail Mail Ideas (@snailmail_ideas). My favorite part about this is the pictures of the different letters that people are sending to one another. It’s something to aim for, in the creativeness of these people, and if you aren’t a snail mail believer now, looking at some ideas might convert you! Seriously…take a look at what people send/receive and tell me you’d rather receive a plain old email.
