SOCIAL MEDIA BLOGS/ACCOUNTS I FOLLOW FOR AESTHETIC APPRECIATION

Thanks for the LR, @ijeoma.
  1. Blogs & Websites
    while I unfollowed a ton of fashion and lifestyle blogs (see why here: HOW TO HANDLE INTERNET-INDUCED DOUBT & JEALOUSY) there are a few I still check in with regularly.
  2. Park & Cube
    Lifestyle/travel/fashion blog by Shini Park of London. Very well curated content, with a beautiful site design and gorgeous photography. Shini has amazing taste, a good sense of humor, and is a wonderful writer. She also just seems uber cool.
  3. Sight Unseen
    Online magazine about design and visual art. Beautiful and interesting. The editors have worked for I.D. Magazine, New York Times Style magazine, Details, and more. I have to avoid the Shop at all times because it is too tempting.
  4. Victoria McGinley's blog
    Previously called VMac & Cheese (I loved that name), Victoria is a blogger and web/blog designer based in San Francisco. She went to culinary schools and her food posts are especially in-point. She had great style and always interesting or useful posts, and a very down-to-earth tone in them which I find is unusual in many blogs these days. victoriamcginley.com/blog
  5. Instagram
  6. Sanithna Phanasavanh
    I discovered Sanithna's art while in Atlanta visiting a friend in December. Her sketches, murals, and paintings are some of my favorite.
  7. Molly Rose Freeman
    Another Atlanta based artist. Gorgeous murals.
  8. Mimi Thorisson
    Cookbook author living in Médoc, France. Beautiful shots (very French country chic), often of food/countryside/terriers (her family loves them). Blog (Manger) is also 👌.
  9. National Trust
    This is how, as an Anglophile, I get my fix the Trust works to preserve and protect historic places and spaces in the UK.
  10. Eugene and Louise Studio
    Belgium based creative studio I discovered thanks to @washingtonpost's list of Snow Puns: Snow Puns (IG [@]eugeneandlouisestudio)
  11. Peter Ferrari
    Another Atlanta artist. I'm kind of obsessed with his work. He also curates Forward Warrior, a public mural event in the city, and another good IG account to follow.
  12. Living Walls
    Living Walls seeks to promote, educate, and change perspectives about public spaces through street art
  13. Design Milk
    This design account is anything but ordinary or stale. Also a List App must-follow, imo @designmilk
  14. David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
    [@]dswt is a Kenya based org that rescues and rehabilitates elephants, giraffes, and other endangered species. Follow for aesthetic and philanthropic reasons.
  15. Rodrigo
    Simple, pretty. Get your cozy, succulent-filled fix here. Bonus: he always matches songs to his photos and I've discovered some great tunes that way.
  16. Guntsy
    Run by @list's very own @ijeoma. So creative!
  17. Scott Kelly
    Stunning photos of earth from the International Space Station, and of life in the station itself. Space is so cool.
  18. food52
    Gorgeous food and kitchen photos.
  19. Waterstones
    The UK's leading bookseller always posts funny, pretty, or interesting photos.
  20. ihavethisthingwithfloors
    Self-explanatory
  21. Hot Dudes Reading
    Also self-explanatory. Not even a little embarrassed about this. (@lisafav et al—good #forearms can be found here)
