NEWSLETTERS THAT ARE MY LIFELINE
I've got a lot of shit going on right now with the whole cut and paste body thing. I still want to know what's going on in the world but I require greater curation. These news letters are like glowing presents in my digital mailbox. They inspire me, teach me things and in some cases make me feel cooler than I am. Strongly recommend:
- •I just can't handle that this is only once a week. @gabimoskowitz, Hilary Clinton and Jennifer Lawrence (breaking her silence about the gross wage inequities she was subjected to) all find a gorgeously illustrated home.I laughed so hard reading @lenadunham Halloween story that I thought I ripped a stitch (it was just steritape) I bought the Grace Jones biography. I need more please. Is there discussion of increased frequency @jennikonner ?!
- •Stella SpoilsI swear I don't even know how I ended up on this list. Zero recollection of signing up. It's so COOL, which seems impossible because since when do cool kids actually refer to themselves as thus. Everyday I get 3ish gorgeous Instagram follow recommendations, a song to listen to, and an article. That day at least one of the things they mention will come up somewhere and I will feel like I won a prize because I already heard about it, like I'm hearing about things before they become the thing.
- •Into the GlossToday they had an interview with the beauty buyer from whole foods (dream job anyone?!?) they dedicated a whole month to eyebrows! They invented Glossier! This is my bible.
- •Violet GreyI love them so much, I just want to curl up in their images and sleep. I learn so much about technique and products from this beautiful, beautiful site. I shamelessly price shop their product recommendations (they are never, never the cheapest) but oooo their stuff is so good.
- •The Zoe ReportRachel Zoe, I just can't quit you. Your beauty recommendations are always on point and I love that you aren't always trying to sell me things (most of the time, but still babes got to eat)
- •Refinery 29 San FranciscoOr wherever you live. They just do a good job of hitting the gestalt of a certain kind of people in my city. Mostly the kind of people who get to leave their houses... But still, vicarious living! Teasing the technotati! Shoes for hills! I'm in
- •The SkimmFeels like I'm at a happy hour filled with I bankers, which is fine because sometimes I need out of this tech bubble like WHOA. Especially good if you spent all day binge watching @lennonparham, and have not even turned on your computer, and suddenly see something on Twitter on your phone and are like "OMG what just happened?" I do kind of want to feed their logo a sandwich, but their summary and link game is tight.
- •@Voxdotcom sentences/next draftSentences: More news than the Skimm (which I love) but still very readable. It comes at the end of the day which is a nice thing, because I can either read it on my way home or in the AM like the rest. Next Draft: between 10-15 stories from various internet outlets. This one also comes in the afternoon (around 3pm) which always gave me something to read on my commute home.Suggested by @maggzerts
