i looooourve them like hot chocolate in the dead of winter.

okay, so just a warning: the following statement might come out completely across as completely ridiculous, but actually this statement popped into my head while browsing the huge ole blog world. i thought i knew of every incredible blog known to man - there's more?! yup, stupid, i know. my jaw was hanging open while browsing blog lovin'. it really does blow my mind how much "untapped" inspiration is out there. 

and you know those incredible blogs i was talking about? well, some of them actually happen to be my August sponsors so i am excited to show them off to you today! seriously, these women blooooow my freakin' mind when i browse their sites - whether it's a gorgeous outfit post, a brand new product, or some hilarious tweet - and i looooourve them like hot chocolate in the dead of winter.
