The Best of the Blogs
Posted: Feb 17 2016 | Author: Marielle TWhile searching for something in my childhood closet this week I came across piles of YM magazines from the early 2000's. I laughed looking over the dog-eared pages of tips and tricks to get perfect beach waves and master electric blue eyeliner. It's a little strange to think, that since the creation of blogs, I haven't subscribed to a magazine in years. What used to be an impatient wait for the mailman to bring me the latest trends has become a limitless wealth of what's hot, minutes after it's been published.
The only drawback in a world that has infinite access to inspiration is that it can feel overwhelming to know where to start. At LUX, we're often swapping notes about the blogs we love to follow, swoon-worthy Instagram accounts or inspiring podcasts we can't stop thinking about. So this week we wanted to share some of our favourite blogs with you.
Here's our roundup of some blogs that we adore and would love to hear about your favourites too!

The Fashionistas: Edmonton has recently become a hotbed for some pretty amazing Style blogs. As pictured above it's hard not to be impressed by the talent and grace of Vickie from Adventures in Fashion. However we simply couldn't narrow it down to just one local fashion blogger so here's a handful also worth checking out: The Pretty Secrets, Northern Style Exposure, Flannel Foxes and Kastles.
