So for anyone who might be looking to create such a site I’ve gathered together 30 WordPress themes for lifestyle blogs in the post below. Pick one out and drop me a link to your blog!

  1. Wouw ! Amazing themes, very nice choice. Thank you for the information, I’ve been searching for a while it’s over now ! :-)

  2. These are nice premium themes! I like WordSmith and Foodie best, of these. I suppose I’m a little conservative, those are probably the most toned down.

    To add a free alternative to this list for lifestyle/fashion bloggers, I just wrote a simple, free theme specifically geared to that crowd.

    Obviously it might not have as many features/options as these premium ones, but it is free. It can be downloaded at chestnutmocha.com/product/the-blog-free-wordpress-theme

    I don’t mean to spam, really, I honestly think this might be useful to lifestyle bloggers looking for something new. We put it up for download yesterday.

  3. Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Many thanks,
    However I am experiencing problems with your RSS.
    I don’t understand the reason why I am unable to join
    it. Is there anybody having similar RSS issues? Anyone who knows the answer can you kindly respond?
