Tiara Mania
A really detailed and in depth blog. There is an accompanying website but this isn’t updated as regularly as the Tumblr.

This website hasn’t been update since 2013, so I don’t know how much longer it will be in service. However, the information that is on there is still worth reading.

More of a message board than a website but it does feature some very interesting articles.
