It’s a Blogger’s World (We Just Live in It)

Rue associates' top picks from the blogosphere

Bloggers

It’s no secret: we’re kind of into blogs. Here, four Rue associates share their favorites.

Dappered
“My morning go-to. The guy (Joe) who writes it gives great advice on dressing well without spending a ton of money. It’s nice to have someone else do all legwork around discovering new brands, sites, and sales.”
– Scott S., Director, New Ventures 

Desire To Inspire
“This blog is run by two design-obsessed friends – one from Australia and one from Canada – who have never actually met. It’s the ultimate voyeur’s playground, plastered with big, beautiful interior and exterior photos of stunning homes all around the world.”
– Lindsay L., Editor 

Cheetah is the New Black, Camille Styles, & oh joy!
“It’s a three-way tie. I love CNB’s style. Camille Styles’s recipes and home styling are great. And oh joy!’s daughter is too cute for words and a super-stylish little nugget.”
– Jessica R., Senior Digital Designer

seersucker + saddles
“This girl boldly mixes prints like nobody’s business. I regularly trawl her blog for style inspiration that’s just the right amount of preppy, edgy, and classic.”
– Chrissy M., Copywriter

We All Scream

10 Rue associates dish on their go-to ice cream toppers – what's yours?

 
A little insider knowledge from the Rue offices? We. Love. Food. Seriously, it’s right up there next to fashion. To celebrate this week’s Sunday Supper, we surveyed the masses for all-time favorite ice cream toppings. Read what our dessert savants had to say, then take our poll and tell us yours.

BLG-Sundaes

“Grape-Nuts on vanilla ice cream. So simple, and tastes like malted milk.”
–Michael D., VP, Audience Development & Syndication

“Fruity Pebbles. Pile them over fro-yo with just one sour gummy worm, and I am instantly in third grade again!”
–Kelly A., Feature Writer

“Peanut butter cups! Chocolate + peanut butter + ice cream… do I really need to say anything more? SO. GOOD.”
–Chrissy M., Copywriter

“Oreos add great texture and never get soggy.”
–Lindsay L., Editor

“There’s a small, family-owned ice cream shop in my hometown that I go to every chance I get. Vanilla with rainbow sprinkles equals summer all year long.”
–Jennifer M., Event Producer

“Bing cherries. Buy them canned, combine in a skillet with a bit of corn starch and brandy, then set it all on fire. (Seriously.) It’s an elegant – not to mention surprisingly easy – way to dress up vanilla or chocolate.”
–Joanna B., Editor

“Coconut, hands down. Because it’s sweet, creamy, and island-inspired. Plus there are health benefits, right? Right.”
–Abigail K., Editor

“Gummy worms and Oreos. Call me nostalgic, but after my first grade teacher introduced that dynamic duo to our class, there was no turning back. (And I just really loved first grade.)”
–Sarah S., Copywriter

“I love raspberries so much that sometimes I put ice cream on them.”
–Sami S., Junior Designer

“Teddy’s Super Chunky Peanut Butter because it adds amazing crunch and flavor to vanilla ice cream.”
–Kasey R., Event Producer

What's your favorite ice cream topping?

BLG_1630_boutique_support_shoelala

Giuseppe Zanotti leather rose peep-toe pumps. For the days I need a little extra edge on my game.”

“The Lanvin bow-tie patent leather pump. The bow adds a ladylike touch and the heel is enough to put the perfect stride in my step.”

Behind the Scenes: Our Mother’s Day Login

Unknown

The fact that our Members’ moms have style is practically a given. So, in honor of Mother’s Day, we gave you a chance to prove it and be featured on our login page – and we received an outpouring of photos and aphorisms on our Facebook and Twitter. With them, we compiled (drumroll, please)… today’s login. We couldn’t include every picture in the interest of space, but some of the others will get their due fame on our Twitter feed. Happy Mother’s Day! #MomStyle
