Blogs you should know…

By Dana Fox


When I stumbled upon this blog, I was smitten. The whole simple-yet-charming self illustrated design pulled me right in.  When I read that Monica was only 14 years old, my mouth dropped open. For reals? She puts so much thought into her posts and how they are displayed, and is one creative little cookie… so of course I adore her! Visit her!


Breanne is a fellow Canadian and can probably pull off any outfit you throw at her. There’s something I find refreshing about discovering Canadian bloggers… I’m not sure why. Maybe I feel like our blogging “club” is much smaller than elsewhere and that we should all be BFFs, haha.  I love checking out her outfits and always secretly commend her for braving the cold and snow in tights (because I’m such a wimp myself). Seriously girl, I don’t know how you do it! Visit her!


I’m such a sucker for well designed posts, and Maddie definitely falls into this category. If sewing is your thing, this is definitely a blogger you need to know. She makes patterns and clothes and even though some of that stuff is over my head, she makes it seem so easy. Visit her!


Carli Bybel is pretty well known on YouTube but I’ve only just recently discovered her. First of all, she is absolutely stunning. Secondly, she does some of the best makeup and hair tutorials… and let’s be serious, how can you look away from her with those eyes! *girl crush alert*. She looks like a celebrity and I kind of want to be her… okay, I’ll stop there hahaha. Visit her!

About me

I am a country loving Canadian with a mind that never sleeps. When I'm not running the Wonder Forest blog ship, you can find me creating artwork for phone cases and home decor, whilst managing the daily tasks of Dana Fox Creative. Visit me at the links below if you wanna be friends!

    I love Maddie! She always has such instructive posts, and her delivery is fantastic. I'm a frequent reader of her site. I have visited The First Lime before, but that was a long time ago … back when she was first starting to blog, I believe. The ones I typically check out are analog photography blogs (Curating Cuteness, For the easily distracted, etc.). I'm also a fan of Oh, Mishka and (of course) Julie Ann. However, my favorites are the hosts/authors of smaller blogs. I've met a few in real life already, and have plans to meet more. :)

  • Chelsea Yates

    Ive never read these blogs before! So thats my first job.!!
    Thankyou :) xxxx

  • Justine Taylor

    I also get excited when I discover other Canadian bloggers!

  • Lesley

    I'm Canadian and always feel a certain something about finding other Canuck bloggers too haha!


  • Jem

    Hi Dana! :)

    First off, I am a Canadian blogger myself!!! :)
    My blog is just a baby right now but I have such big dreams for it, one of which is to someday be able to have YOU design a super incredible blog layout! It is quite expensive to do that so for now I am enjoying my blog's childhood and simply writing about what I want to write about. Thanks for the recommendations! :) Will definitely be checking them out.

  • Stephanie B

    I'm following Breanne already but I didn't know the other ones. The ones I like are Gaby's Beauty Blog, Makeup Savvy and Miss Lucy Loves. Oh and I also loves Gemsmaquillage!

  • Gia @ Lovely Serendipity

    I've been reading Camie's blog since I was 13! She deleted her old ones but the new one is still great :) You should definitely check her site out :)

  • Kate

    Haha – tights in the snow makes me laugh because I was watching How I Met Your Mother the other day, and there was a scene where everyone's bundled up to go outside to ice skate, and Robin (the Canadian character) comes running out in shorts and a tank top. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, and even though I've lived in Missouri half my life, I'd still rather be warm!

    I'm just launching my own blog, and I've read SO MANY blogs lately in the name of research and advertising that they all blend together – but I always read recommendations from my favorites. I'll check them out!

  • Julie Claveau

    *jumps on the canadian boat* i get excited too when i meet other canadian bloggers!! im in the monteregie. 😉

  • Torrie

    Thanks for sharing these Dana! I love hearing about new blogs to read – gotta keep things fresh ya know? And I'll also plug myself by saying I'm a Canadian blogger and I know what you mean about the BFF thing – I always feel like I instantly love a blogger once I find out they're a homie from the north!

  • Charlotte Jewell

    Brilliant, I love posts like this because there's always at least one new blog for me to follow that I haven't heard of before! Thanks for doing this!

    Oh gosh, thank you for the shout out. I am honored. I don't think people realize how much time I spend on my blog but it's what I love to do. I only hope everyone continues to follow me and Madalynne.

  • Bettina Rae

    Thanks for sharing, I love discovering new blogs. I know what you mean about feeling an alliance with those based in Canada. I'm the same with those in Australia. I've just started a series highlighting my favourite Aussie Blogs. Two in and many more to come.

  • Tarin Ahmed

    I love these blogs you've recommended! I've just started a blog myself and i was hoping to get some people to look at it and give me feedback.

    I've never heard of any of these blogs so thanks for the introduction.

    I get what you mean about Canadian bloggers. I'm not Canadian but I think a lot of Scottish bloggers feel the same about clicking together and being best pals.

    I just came across your blog from Twitter recommending that I follow you. I blog over at and am also a fellow Canadian blogger. I was happy to read that! I totally get what you mean about our blogger world being so much smaller than the states. Anyway, now I am following you on Twitter and Bloglovin! I've been playing catch up and reading through your old archives, I enjoy it here!
