Now Read This: Ten Houston Fashion Bloggers to Bookmark
Five days a week I wake up and start my day with The Three Bs: Breakfast, Beauty, and Blogs. I pour myself a cup of coffee, make myself gorgeous in front of the mirror (okay, I moisturize), and then sit down to review my favorite blogs. These consist largely of beauty, perfume, and fashion blogs with a few political sites thrown in. The first 90 minutes of my day are all about about skincare, makeup, and clothes--and I do it all for you.
Put down the magazine and plop in front of your computer screen.
Lately I've been taking a break from the mainstream selections--national sites like Into the Gloss, and Go Fug Yourself--and checking out some of our local Houston fashionistas. I'm finding a lot to like. Come, let me introduce you to ten people who will reduce your productivity tenfold! (But you'll look a lot better while you're doing less.)
We Wear Things
I ran into two of the bloggers for We Wear Things at a recent Clarins beauty event, and recognized them immediately from their photos. I love their photo-heavy blog, where several bloggers cover fashion, jewelry, beauty, and local events. The blog has an edge, but with an approachable sense of humor I appreciate.
This is a fashion/beauty blog for low-maintenance readers who don't have 90 minutes a day to peruse their favorite beauty blogs. Updated 1-2 times per month, Houstonista tosses in some home design and décor with the fashion and beauty coverage. Drop in once a month and you'll be all caught up.

Southern Chic Style
Great photos are enough to keep me coming back to a blog, and Southern Chic Style has great photos. Don't let the Tumblr address fool you--blogger Bethany Marie has a lot to say on fashion and beauty. Excellent "I could be doing something else, but why would I?" reading material.
Magen Pastor had me at "lifestyle, fashion, photography." She's an ambitious blogger, with several weekly updates on events, fashion, food, and more. She is also a mom, so you get glimpses of her adorable 4-year-old twins here and there.
