Homes: Design* Sponge
This design blog by Brooklyn-based writer Grace Bonney is considered the cream of the crop, serving up six to eight daily posts on home design, new products and clever tips. Named the “Martha Stewart Living for the Millennials” by The New York Times, the blog has 75,000 daily readers and Grace has become a regular on the lecture circuit.
Food: Pastry Affair
Delicious pastries, breathtaking photography – this blog is something special not least because its author Kristin Rosenau gave up six years of studying to be an astroparticle physicist when she discovered pastries. “Making pastries, eating pastries, sharing pastries, dreaming about pastries… I tried to stay faithful to physics, but pastries had completely captured my heart.”
Travel: Intelligent Travel Blog, National Geographic Traveler
With its huge resources, National Geographic Traveler has some of the most inspiring travel photography and writing on the web and its Intelligent Travel blog is considered one of the best in the business. “We’re on the front line of travel – and we’re taking you along for the ride.” On this trip we discover Woody Allen’s New York.
Fashion: Wmagazine Tumblr
For the who, what, wear, when and why of fashion, Wmagazine is hard to beat. The website is more like an e-mag but it’s the Tumblr blog I love – one huge gorgeous image after the other.
