Most people don’t actually know what lifestyle blogs are – they’re simply drawn to them because they don’t know what else they might want to start a blog about.

So this leaves even bigger questions about whether or not and how you can make money from a lifestyle blog.

In this article, we’re going to show you 25 top lifestyle blog examples that are all successful so that you can get some ideas on whether or not you might want to start one of your own.

We hope you enjoy these popular lifestyle blogs and they give you some inspiration to get started!

Before we get into the actual blogs, we’ll explain what a lifestyle blog is and how they generally make money.

What is a lifestyle blog?

A lifestyle blog is exactly as it sounds – a blog that covers topics related to your lifestyle.

Some common lifestyle blog topics include:

  • Health
  • Travel
  • Fashion
  • Beauty
  • Recipes and Food
  • DIY and Home
  • Parenting
  • Latest Trends

But what makes a lifestyle blog different from a niche blog is that it usually covers multiple of the above topics (or niches).

If your blog covers only health and food topics, you’re a health blogger. If you only cover topics like home and parenting, you’re more in the niche of home and parenting.

Many lifestyle blogs start out covering more topics and then they begin to niche down over time as some topics become more popular than others with their audience.

How do lifestyle blogs make money?

You can monetize a lifestyle blog just the same way as you can monetize any other blog, really.

In fact, because lifestyle blogs cover a wide variety of topics, you have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to making money.

Here are some of the most common ways to make money with a blog:

Ads

Ads are one of the easiest and most passive ways of making money with a blog and how more than half of the lifestyle blogs on this list are making money.

The best strategy to earn more with ads is to partner with a premium ad network that will pay you more, place the ads on your site for you, and optimize them.

You can see an example in this blog post from this popular lifestyle blog, Chasing Foxes:

monetize ads example

For every few hundred visitors to your website, you might earn a few cents to a few dollars, depending on who you partner with. So you need some serious volume to make any real money.

Mediavine is widely known as the best in the business, but they have pretty strict requirements to join (50,000 sessions per month). Ezoic is the best to start with once you reach 10,000 sessions per month.

This is one of the most popular ways to earn income with lifestyle blogs because you can write sponsored posts on a wider variety of topics.

A sponsored post is a blog post that is usually written about a specific topic and/or product, and the company that owns the product will pay you to write the post and publish it on your blog.

You usually need to have an established source of traffic and audience first before you begin accepting sponsored posts because the company wants to know that the sponsored post will actually get seen and shared by others.

The more visitors that you have and the bigger your audience is, the more money you will make with sponsored posts. Anywhere from a few hundred per post to a few thousand per post.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is probably one of the quickest and best ways to monetize a lifestyle blog.

Affiliate marketing is when you promote other people’s products and services on your website and earn a commission when someone signs up through your links (called affiliate links).

A great example is this post from a popular lifestyle blog for men, A Gentleman Within.

affiliate marketing blog example

In this post, the watches that are being reviewed are linked to Amazon, and the blog will receive a commission if purchases are made from clicks in this article.

It can be as easy as adding a few affiliate links for related products in your articles. Or you can invest more time into creating dedicated content and emails to specific higher-priced products that are harder to sell but earn you more money.

Selling Your Own Products

Selling your own products is often the hardest way to make money with a blog, but it will also generally earn you the most money. It’s your typical higher-risk, higher-reward scenario.

This can be digital products, eBooks, online courses, coaching, and other downloadable products, or physical products from an eCommerce store.

eCommerce shops with physical products are actually really popular with lifestyle blogs. Many lifestyle bloggers link Shopify or Etsy stores to their blogs and sell the items that they feature on their blogs.

Regardless of which way you choose to make money with your blog, the best approach is usually to use a combination of these methods.

This helps you earn income from different sources and diversify – essentially putting your eggs in more than one basket.

25 Successful Lifestyle Blog Examples

The best lifestyle blogs featured below are in no particular order. You’ll find that a lot of them have common themes and topics that we mentioned earlier: health, travel tips, fashion advice, style inspiration, beauty tips, and more.

Keep these topics in mind as you browse these top lifestyle blog examples so that you can get blog post ideas for some of the topics you might want to cover in your own blog!

1. Collective Gen

Collective Gen website homepage

Geneva Vanderzeil is the founder and editor of Collective Gen, a “community for women who make things – their style, their homes, and their lives.”

She is an author, stylist, and professional photographer and has turned her passions into a full-time career – with her blog.

Geneva grew her first blog, A Pair & A Spare (now Collective Gen) to millions of readers and features in newspapers and magazines. She also authored her own book, Home is Where You Make It.

  • Topics: Style, Home, Life, Travel, Planet
  • Monetization: Affiliate Marketing, Sponsored Posts, and Book Sales
  • Social Media: Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

The #1 thing I notice about this blog is how on-point the branding is. All of the photos on this blog have the same color tones of greens and brown/tan, and it makes the blog look very cohesive. 

Her post on how to set up a vertical garden is a great example of a good sponsored post!

2. Akanksha Redhu

Akanksha Redhu website homepage

Akanksha, originally from India, started her self-titled blog in 2010 as a channel to write about her “ideas, projects, inspirations, and daydreams.”

This is a great example of how you can turn a hobby or personal blog into a lifestyle blog and a business.

If you look back at her oldest blog posts, you can see that her blog has evolved over the years since it first started.

Here is another example of a sponsored post on her blog on repairing damaged hair.

  • Topics: Fashion, Travel, Luxury, Beauty, Media, and Events
  • Monetization: Affiliate Marketing and Sponsored Posts
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

It’s simple and it’s her. All of the photos she uses in her blog are personal photos of Akanksha and her experiences.

We like that in her About page, she explains that she still writes all of her blog posts. Tons of bloggers outsource some or all of their writing as they become more successful, but she keeps it real.

3. Cupcakes and Cashmere

Cupcakes and Cashmere website screenshot

Cupcakes and Cashmere was founded by Emily Schuman in 2008. She runs the website with her husband, Geoffrey, who helps her with the business side of things.

Emily has written 2 books for her site and also has a team of 6 helping her with customer service, operations, and buying goods for her fashion line.

  • Topics: Fashion, Food, Beauty, Travel, Decor, DIY, and Motherhood
  • Monetization: Ads, affiliate programs, sponsored posts, eCommerce store, and book sales
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

Cupcakes and Cashmere has become one of the most well-known lifestyle blogs with two books published as well as many products like home decor. They also have a clothing line with Nordstrom.

4. A Cup of Jo

A Cup of Jo website screenshot

A Cup of Jo is a women’s lifestyle blog founded in 2007 and has a wide readership of over 4 million views per month.

This blog features posts on personal stories, healthy living, delicious recipes, outfit ideas, celebrity news, and so much more!

  • Topics: Style, Design, Food, Relationships, Travel, and Motherhood
  • Monetization: Sponsored posts, affiliate partnerships, and advertising
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

A Cup of Jo donates a percentage of its profits to several support organizations such as RAICES, NAACP, NARAL, Greenpeace, Save the Children, Planned Parenthood, the Lilith Fund, and The Florence Project.

5. A Beautiful Mess

A Beautiful Mess website homepage

A Beautiful Mess is run by the popular lifestyle bloggers and dynamic sister duo of Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman. In addition to running their blog full-time, they have also written 3 books and created a few top-selling photo editing apps.

A Beautiful Mess is a great example of how you can start a pretty simple blog and turn it into a thriving business with a full team to boot!

They have an entire team behind the scenes, which is another example of being a successful blog owner makes you a successful business owner and entrepreneur.

  • Topics: Crafts, Decor, Recipes, Advice, and Style
  • Monetization: Physical products (photography), Digital products (courses), Books (home and projects), Apps (design), Affiliate Marketing, and Sponsored Posts
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

Other than their awesome blog with TONS of content, A Beautiful Mess also monetizes through a variety of different ways. The best approach that we explained at the beginning of this article.

They don’t publish their income reports, but it’s obvious that this is one of the most successful lifestyle blogs on this list with a full team behind it!

6. The Everygirl

The Everygirl website screenshot

The Everygirl is a lifestyle blog created by Alaina Kaczmarski and Danielle Moss in 2012 that caters to millennial women.

It has since grown to be one of the leading lifestyle blogs for women.

  • Topics: Career & Finance, Fashion, Beauty, Living, Wellness, Sex & Relationships, Tech Backgrounds
  • Monetization: Partnerships with brands, sponsored posts, and various online courses.
  • Social Media: Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

The Everygirl has a team of 21 and an additional 56 contributors to the website, which makes them a pretty incredible powerhouse!

7. Twenty-First Century Gent

Twenty First Century Gent website

Ben started his lifestyle blog, Twenty-First Century Gent, as he was nearing his thirties and wanting to share his creative side and his adventures with his wife, Katie, and Pomeranian, Pepita (aww).

The cool thing is… His better half has her own lifestyle blog too! Katie Kalanchoe.

Ben and Katie both use their blogs to showcase their travels, best fashion tips, health advice, lifestyle tips, and more.

  • Topics: Fashion, Lifestyle, and Travel
  • Monetization: Affiliate Marketing
  • Social Media: Instagram

Why It Stands Out

Honestly, we just love how much this guy is rocking this space.

The lifestyle blogger space is predominantly female. Sure, there are tons of men’s lifestyle blogs out there. But there are SO many more started and run by females.

8 Say Yes

Say Yes website screenshot

Liz, the founder of Say Yes and mother of three, started this blog to “celebrate family life” through practical tips on home, travel, and personal style.

She says that when she is brainstorming new content with her team, they gather together and talk about everything under the sun from post-partum depression to Thanksgiving plans.

She says that she wants her site to feel like you’re just having another night out with one of your coolest girlfriends.

  • Topics: Fashion, Lifestyle, and Travel
  • Monetization: Ads, Affiliate Marketing, Sponsored Content, Retreats, eCommerce Store
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

Our favorite thing about this blog is just its simplicity. You would never know that it has been featured in tons of magazines and publications nationwide or that there is an entire team running the blog in the background.

It doesn’t need fancy bells and whistles and designs. It’s just a simple blog with one really important focus: great content.

9. P.S. I Made This

PS I Made This website screenshot

This craft and DIY-related lifestyle blog was founded by Erica Domesek and it was started from her passion for hand-making beautiful objects and accessories.

She started her blog in 2009 and since then has written a book and been featured on The Today Show, The Martha Stewart Show, E! News, and several other major media outlets.

  • Topics: Fashion, Lifestyle, Food, Beauty, and Crafts
  • Monetization: Book Sales, Affiliate Marketing, and Sponsored Content
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

This lifestyle blog has a specific focus on crafts and DIY. She blogs about various topics but most of her content is written for a budget-friendly, do-it-yourself-loving audience.

She has a targeted audience and this is super important to building relationships with your readers and earning a full-time income with your blog.

10. Wit & Delight

wit & delight blog

Wit & Delight lives up to the very definition of a “lifestyle blog” – quite literally. On their About Us page, they say define lifestyle as:

  • Life – Who you are
  • Style – How you live

We like their website because there is SO much more behind the “lifestyle” that they are promoting. It’s personalized, created from individual and meaningful moments, and written specifically for you.

This lifestyle blog shares content on everything from home decor ideas to self-development and style advice.

  • Topics: Interior Design, Fashion & Style, Health & Wellness, Relationship, Career, Beauty, Parenthood, Travel
  • Monetization: eCommerce store (books and notebooks), ads, affiliate marketing, and sponsored content
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

“What we lack in professional degrees or credentials, we make up for in life experience, and trial and error.”

We love this because Wit & Delight is totally owning the fact that most successful blogs come more from experience than anything else.

11. The Pioneer Woman

The Pioneer Woman website screenshot

The Pioneer Woman is an award-winning lifestyle blog founded in 2006 by Ree Drummond. She is passionate about creating content that reflects her personal story of living as a rancher’s wife on a large cattle farm in Oklahoma

Her blog focuses on sharing stories from her life and home but also provides a wealth of practical tips and advice for readers.

From recipes to DIY projects to life advice and self-care, there is something for everyone at The Pioneer Woman.

  • Topics: Personal Life, Food and Recipes, Home, Beauty, Style
  • Monetization: Affiliate marketing, advertising, book sales (cookbooks), magazine subscriptions, and more.
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

In addition to blogging and the website itself, The Pioneer Woman has spawned several cookbooks, a magazine subscription service, product lines, tv shows, and more.

Ree has created a vast empire that continues to grow every year.

12. He Spoke Style

He Spoke Style website screenshot

He Spoke Style is a lifestyle blog created by Brian Sacawa that has become a go-to for men around the world who want to stay updated on the latest trends and fashion news.

Not only does the website feature stylish looks put together by Sacawa himself, but there are also several helpful resources like style guides, shopping advice, and product recommendations.

  • Topics: Style, Recipes, Reviews, and Fashion
  • Monetization: Sponsored content and partnerships with major brands such as Amazon, Nordstrom, Everlane, Bonobos, and others

Why It Stands Out

Sacawa’s personal story of transitioning from a corporate job into full-time blogging has also been an important factor in its success.

His journey shows aspiring bloggers that no matter where you start out, hard work and dedication can lead you toward your dreams.

13. Camille Styles

Camille Styles website screenshot

Camille Styles is a successful lifestyle blog started by Camille Harris in 2009.

Despite majoring in journalism and having a dream of being a magazine editor, Camilla fell into catering for several years at the start of her career and quickly fell in love with event planning.

She started her blog on these topics as a creative outlet and it quickly grew into one of the top lifestyle websites on the web.

  • Topics: Food, Event Hosting, Design, Beauty, Wellness
  • Monetization: Product sales (home goods), sponsored content, and affiliate sales
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

In addition to blogging, Camille Styles also offers product lines such as home decor items, kitchenware, apparel, stationery products, and more. She also offers various workshops and events throughout the year which helps bring her blog to life even further.

14. Hither and Tither

Hither and Tither website screenshot

Hither and Thither is a lifestyle blog by Ashley Muir Bruhn that focuses on home and family life and sharing experiences from Ashley’s personal life.

  • Topics: Travel, Home Design, Family, Food & Drink, Style, and Lifestyle
  • Monetization: Advertising, affiliate sales, and sponsored posts
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

As she states on her About page, nearly every post on her blog is her original photography. We think that’s pretty cool considering so many blogs use stock photography these days.

15. The Art of Manliness

The Art of Manliness website screenshot

The Art of Manliness is a successful lifestyle blog founded by Brett McKay in 2008.

Initially, the website was created to help men learn how to be more confident and successful in their lives, while also providing them with valuable advice on topics such as fashion, relationships, career, health, fitness, and more.

The website has since grown into a massive resource containing thousands of articles, podcasts, and videos.

  • Topics: Men’s Lifestyle, Relationships, Career, Health & Fitness
  • Monetization: Advertising, affiliate sales, and program sales
  • Social Media: Podcast

Why It Stands Out

The website provides practical advice that is easy to follow, and it has become a go-to resource for men who want to better their lives in all areas. It also offers various products ranging from books to apparel that help support its mission.

16. Living in Yellow

Living in Yellow website screenshot

Living in Yellow was founded by Emily McCauley, who set out to create an online space that would focus on inspiring others to enjoy life and live it to the fullest.

In addition to being a great source of information on lifestyle topics, Living in Yellow also provides an uplifting atmosphere that helps its readers feel encouraged and motivated.

Emily is passionate about celebrating the small moments in life and encourages her readers to do the same.

  • Topics: Style, Life, Travel, Amazon, Brands
  • Monetization: Affiliate marketing and partnerships with well-known brands such as Amazon, Nordstrom, Everlane, and Bonobos to offer product reviews and sponsorships
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

In addition to blogging, Living in Yellow also offers various resources such as printables for meal planning, style guides for shopping smarter, and other helpful tools that can be used by its readers daily.

All these elements combined have helped make Living in Yellow one of the most successful lifestyle blogs today.

17. Carly Riordan

Carly Riordan website screenshot

Carly Riordan started her blog in 2008 and turned her creative outlet into a full-blown business. She is a big supporter of female entrepreneurship and even wrote a book on the topic, called Business Minded.

  • Topics: Health & Fitness, Food, Travel, Personal Growth, Productivity
  • Monetization: Advertising and affiliate sales
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

Carly Riordan takes an honest approach when it comes to her content and shares her own experiences Her blog is not only informative but also inspiring in every sense, helping her audience to make positive changes in their lives.

18. The Skinny Confidential

The Skinny Confidential website screenshot

The Skinny Confidential is a successful lifestyle blog founded by Lauryn Evarts Bosstick.

From detailed interviews to helpful products reviews, this blog covers it all for its readers. The website also offers helpful tools such as meal plans and exercise plans that could be implemented into one’s daily routine.

  • Topics: Beauty, Recipes, Baby, Business, Pregnancy, Relationships, and Home
  • Monetization: eCommerce store (beauty products), affiliate marketing, book sales, and other partnerships and sponsored content
  • Social Media: Pinterest, Podcast

Why It Stands Out

One of Lauryn’s blog categories is called “Realness” where she shares more personal blog content about her life and experiences, which makes her very relatable to her audience.

The Skinny Confidential also has an online store where readers can shop from a wide selection of products ranging from beauty items to apparel items and even home decor items.

19. Jessica Ann Kirby

Jessica Ann Kirby website screenshot

Jessica Ann Kirby started her blog in 2013 after leaving her 9-5 job of HR Consulting that she worked at for 5 years.

  • Topics: Style, Beauty, Home & Living, and Travel
  • Monetization: Affiliate marketing and sponsored content
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

Jessica’s blog has a big focus on community, which is something that makes it stand out from the other best lifestyle blogs on this list.

As she states, she seeks to foster connection through “honest story-telling and authentic conversation.”

20. Design for Mankind

Design for Mankind website screenshot

Erin is perhaps one of the most experienced lifestyle bloggers on this list, having started her first blog back in 2001 when it was still called a “web log,” as she states.

It was a different blog with a different focus, but she’s been in the lifestyle blogging game for a long time.

Since starting Design for Mankind, she has been recognized in international events partnering with Walt Disney World, IKEA, Martha Stewart, Home Depot, and more.

  • Topics: Family, Kids, Home and Other Miscellaneous Topics
  • Monetization: Book Sales, sponsored content, and affiliate marketing
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

We love Erin’s honesty. In this blog post on why she blogs, she states that she has blogged for every reason under the sun, including to find people like her, to find people unlike her, to avoid therapy, to research, to hide, to share, to teach, to discover, and to connect.

It doesn’t get any more real than that.

21. The Good Men Project

The Good Men Project website screenshot

The Good Men Project is an award-winning website featuring helpful articles related to men’s issues, relationships, lifestyle, and wellness. Founded in 2008, the website provides a platform for honest dialogue around topics such as masculinity, fatherhood, and mental health.

The Good Men Project tackles these topics in a way that is respectful and open-minded, providing insight into men’s lives from both a personal and a broader perspective.

  • Topics: Relationships, Dads & Families, Advice & Confessions, and Ethics
  • Monetization: Advertising, sponsored content, affiliate links, and a membership program
  • Social Media: Pinterest
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

What really makes The Good Men Project stand out on this list of best lifestyle blogs is its Diversity & Inclusion program. The company works to bring men into the conversation of diversity and inclusion and covers topics such as modern masculinity.

They offer live calls with those interested to learn more about the program.

22. Style by Emily Henderson

Emily Henderson website screenshot

Style by Emily Henderson is a lifestyle blog founded by Emily Henderson in 2012. Emily is a 56th-generation-born Utahnian, as she calls it, and was also a former Mormon. She’s been married to her husband for over 19 years and they have two kids together.

On her blog, Emily shares everything from interior design to swimsuits, healthy food, personal growth, or her husband’s therapy. 

  • Topics: Design, Lifestyle, Personal, Interior Design, and Projects
  • Monetization: eCommerce store, affiliate links, sponsored posts, membership program
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

In her “Personal” blog category, this lifestyle blog has a sub-category called “Controversial Debates.” In this section, you can find detailed articles on controversial topics such as racism, religion, guns, and more.

Many companies and businesses don’t take a stand on these important matters or participate in the discussion, so we think it’s awesome that this blog does.

Emily also has over 50,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel, making it the channel with the most subscribers on this list.

23. Peanut Butter Fingers

PB Fingers website screenshot

Peanut Butter Fingers is a lifestyle blog by Julie Flagan in 2009 with a heavy focus on health, wellness, and fitness. This blog follows her healthy, balanced everyday life that she shares with her husband, Ryan, and three boys.

Before she started her blog, she worked in public relations and marketing before taking a job as a content manager for a large website.

  • Topics: Recipes, Workouts, Pregnancy, Baby, and Travel
  • Monetization: Affiliate links and advertising
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

Julie’s blog is probably the closest to a personal blog on this list. There doesn’t appear to be an entire team of people running the blog. It’s just Julie and perhaps some admin help, although it’s not mentioned on her website.

This makes Peanut Butter Fingers a great inspiration for all those solo bloggers out there looking to grow their lifestyle blogs.

24. Corpette

Corpette website screenshot

Corporette is a lifestyle and fashion blog created by Kat Griffin in 2009 that caters to professional women.

Kat started out her career as a litigator on Wall Street and noticed that a lot of working women had money to spend on their wardrobes but no time to navigate the fashion trends.

She uses her blog to inspire and empower the modern woman through fashion.

  • Topics: Career and Fashion
  • Monetization: Ads, sponsored posts, and affiliate marketing
  • Social Media: Instagram, Pinterest

Why It Stands Out

Some might think that Corpette is simply a fashion blog, but we think it’s so much more than that. The website provides all kinds of career advice and content and a woman’s career is such a large part of her life.

This website supports and encourages the empowerment of women in their careers.

25. TeriLyn Adams

Terilyn Adams website screenshot

TeriLyn Adams first started blogging in 2004 when she was in college. It was a blog about her classes and training for her first half marathon.

She then started her second blog in 2008, A Foodie Stays Fit, to share recipes, updates about her running, healthy lifestyle, and general life stuff.

This was the beginning of her lifestyle blog, which she has since changed the name of to TeriLyn Adamns.

  • Topics: Fashion, Beauty, Running, and Life
  • Monetization: Ads, affiliate marketing
  • Social Media: Instagram, YouTube

Why It Stands Out

Most bloggers quit their full-time jobs as quickly as possible when their blogs become successful. TeriLyn was quite the opposite – working in corporate America for 15 years throughout her blogging career.

With a degree in business management and corporate finance, she worked at several major financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, BB&T (now Truist), and Wells Fargo.

Not only does she have a total boss babe background, but she also shares deeply personal experiences about everyday life, family, pregnancy, and more.

Now that you’ve learned more about some of the top lifestyle blogs and how they make money, you probably have a somewhat better feel for whether or not you might want to start one.

The other things you might want to consider before starting a lifestyle blog:

What blog topics do you want to talk about?

If you are having a hard time deciding on a blog niche, it might be a good idea to start with multiple topics until you can/want to narrow it down more.

As you begin to get more visitors to your blog, you may find that certain topics are more popular than others. This is a great way to decide how to “niche down” to a narrower focus.

What do you want to name your lifestyle blog?

Naming your blog is an easier process than you might think.

Lifestyle blogs often have their creator at the very center – their life, their habits, and their recommendations. Many of the biggest lifestyle blogs also include the name of the founder in the domain name.
