My morning routine goes something like this:
Wake up 45 minutes earlier than I really have to (I suppose I’m one of those fabled morning people)
+ then plop myself down in front of my computer and go through my three email accounts for school, business/life, and newsletters ( <- this one is what those 45 minutes are for).
I would 10/10 recommend making a newsletter account if you don’t already have one.
My embarrassing 7th-grade email (username: pippippia) has turned into the perfect inbox for rewards programs and newsletters that I don’t want cluttering my actual inbox.
So, back to the email newsletters… I need to start planning on which software I’m going to use to send these out. I think I’ll have to read those reviews on Mailchimp vs Sendgrid to see which is best for me at this stage of my blog.
I love reading random stories on the internet and knowing what’s happening in the world (that’s my inner International Relations student talking). Here’s a little rundown of the newsletters I’d be lost without:
1. Refinery 21
What To Expect: A little bit of fashion advice, fitness tips and interesting opinion pieces (oh, and a weekly horoscope because why not)
What I’m Loving: 5 Hacks for a Healthier Week (<- yes, there's one every week!) 2. Equinox (Q)
What To Expect: Trainers’ insider tips and celebs’ workout playlist (not to mention their super nice graphics)
What I’m Loving: What Trainers Really Think About (When Doing Squats and Lunges)
What To Expect: Reading about wacky new technological projects and developing trends.
What I’m Loving: A Walk-In Mist Bar That Lets You Inhale Cocktails
4. PureWow (New York… and the Hamptons):
What To Expect: Everything from new exhibits, listicles on NYC stereotypes and alcoholic ice pop recipes
What I’m Loving: The Coolest NYC Photo Archive
5. Netted By Webbys
What To Expect: Being introduced to cool new apps that can help with everything from productivity to shopping.
What I’m Loving: Forest: Clear Your Distractions
6. Gymbags and Jetlags Monthly Email (shameless self promotion for the win!)
What To Expect: A round-up of my favourite posts on the first of every month and fun extras like phone backgrounds or Instragramable quotes.
What I’m Loving: Signing up right here!
Are you an email newsletters fiend or an inbox purist? What are your favourite news letters?
Awesome idea! I find that it’s so difficult to go to a whole bunch of different websites to read stuff. Makes it so much easier when it’s all in one place, and delivered to you!
(Lovin’ that mug haha)
Once again lovely post 🙂
Right?! It’s all about practicality. And thank you! I’ve had that mug foreverrrrr. Thanks for reading Elyse!
Thank you for share!
Thanks for reading Diana!
Funny! I have lots of subscriptions I can’t keep up with. I need to seriously declutter my e-mail.
Story of my life! There’s actually some website that shows you everything you’re subscribed to and you can just uncheck subscriptions from there. Ahhh I wish I could remember what it’s called!
Pity you don’t recall! I’ve been silly enough to subscribe to all the stores and things I like and now no matter how many I delete the e-mail is still cluttered. I’m going crazy over here!
It’s called ‘unroll me’ – it’s so easy to use! I love it 🙂

I am not subscribed to many but these sound interesting! I just subscribed to yours ^-^

Aw thank you so much!! I love you blog! Thanks for reading 🙂 xx
Having a separate email account for newsletters is so handy. These are some good ones!
It’s awesome for rewards programs and coupons too!
I’m just trying to figure out what to do with my own newsletter! It’s so great reading others to get ideas 🙂 Refinery29 sounds great will definitely sign up to that one. And of course yours 😉
