Blog review: Blog features "fresh" photography, fashion
When I first read Tania’s blog Fresh Fizzle, all I could think was, “Wow, why can’t I take perfectly-lit pictures like that, own all of those outfits and not smile in a picture and not look like I’m taking a terrible mug shot?” Her blog is complete with artsy pictures, beautiful backgrounds and cute clothes that had me instantly jealous.
Tania blogs about the three major things in her life: fashion, food and “fotography.” Each post contains gorgeous pictures of her modeling outfits with a short editorial and a detailed account of everything she is wearing.
A few of my favorite fashion posts include “A Mellow Yellow,” which shows her outfit as the sun is setting, and “A Circle & Plaid,” which features an American Apparel circle skirt and black ankle boots. In “Something Borrowed,” Tania tries out a sequined tribal skirt from Borrowed Closet, a service that allows subscribers to pay a set amount to borrow clothing, accessories and handbags.
Tania documents her delicious “food porn” in posts like “Eating Lately” and “Date Night in My Favorite Dress.” I basically drool over the desserts in “A Day in NY” and “Those Lazy Hazy Days of Summer," and I think it’s safe to say she and I have a serious sweet tooth.
Under the Finds category, readers can view and purchase some of Tania’s choices of clothing, bags and accessories from places ranging from Urban Outfitters to Rebecca Minkoff. Many of her outfits have a heavy price tag, but she always seems to mix in pieces from Target and H&M.
I only wish she would share more about herself and her life. I think blogs are best when the bloggers show their personalities, give a glimpse into their lives and add some humor along the way. But as for Tania, I guess we’ll never know how she gets to eat at fabulous restaurants and climb the highest peak of Machu Picchu while still managing to be impeccably dressed.
Regardless, Fresh Fizzle offers a great visual journal of a life filled with styled outfits, yummy confections and travel adventures. This blog is great for browsing and is user-friendly with its massive amount of pictures. Prepare to ooze jealousy, though; her clothes, travels and experiences are definitely envy-worthy.
