I’ve always been a lover of the internet, and over the years, I’ve collected publications, songwriters, podcasts, and writers that I love to follow and listen to. I especially try to support women who are trying to make their way as artists and influencers. In this man’s-man world it can be pretty difficult. So here are some girl bosses who have been producing fabulous work lately, that I’ve been loving… Each with a link to a specific piece of work that I’ve enjoyed recently 🙂
Influencers I want to be friends with // Lucy Moon
I’ve watched Lucy’s videos for years, and I’ve always appreciated her candor and honesty in her YouTube videos. She talks honestly about sexuality and birth control, mental illness, and her own battles with addiction. I’ve also recently started reading her blog, which is so well written and interesting, I’m more than a little jealous! I especially loved this article on self-care that she wrote.
Podcasts that I listen to at work // Ctrl-Alt-Delete
I discovered this podcast through, funnily enough, Lucy Moon’s blog. I’ve gotten into the habit of listening to podcasts while I’m at work. I like variation, too, so I love when I can find a new podcast. Crtl-Alt-Delete is hosted by Emma Gannon, and she interviews women who are working on amazing projects or own their own businesses. The interviews are always super interesting! Plus, Emma’s English accent is so soothing. I especially love the interview she did with Lena Dunham.
Tunes that I read along to // Jenny Hval
Jenny Hval is a songwriter who I discovered through the Rookie podcast. It is pure poetry, and it’s music that is so easy to lose yourself in. Her stuff is pretty eclectic and dream-like. I like looking up the lyrics and reading along with the songs, and I would recommend doing that as you listen to her songs, if you have the time! Her songs have so much meaning that it’s worth taking a beat and soaking in the message.
What I read before I go to bed // Brianna Weist
She is a fabulous and lauded author and freelance writer who is an alum from my college. She’s written for Forbes, Girls, and Thought Catalogue, and has published a collection of essays and a collection of poetry. Her writing is so full of wisdom and thoughtfulness, it’s incredibly hard to believe that she only graduated a few years ahead of me. And did I mention that her Instagram is the essence of aesthetic? (I just really want to be best friends). I’ve been reading her book 101 Essays That Will Change The Way You Think. I am in awe as I make my way through this book. Brianna is such a fantastic writer, and the wisdom that she portrays through these essays is extraordinary. If you want to have your mind blown with every word, I highly recommend this book!
I enjoyed putting this post together, I think that I’ll make this a regular post. I like the “Feast Your Eyes & Ears” title, but if you have any recommendations for a title, leave it in the comments below! Also, if you have any writers, influencers, or podcasts you’ve been loving recently, let me know! I would love to hear 🙂
