Magazine writer and blogger Joanna Goddard brings us the best in dreamy New York City lifestyle on her blog A Cup of Jo, so this week we asked her to share her favourite accounts for Follow Friday.
Ruth Reichl – novelist and former Gourmet Magazine editor-in-chief – links to fascinating food articles (such as Eat More Butter!) and writes poetic tweets about things she eats. One example: “Cold rain. Spring’s hiding. Hibiscus tea: vibrant cup of red. Sour cherry tart: a jolt of flavour somersaulting through the mouth. Awake now.”
Most of my relatives live in England, so Very British Problems ring hilariously true. One especially true tweet: “Having at least 23 teaspoons in the sink at any one time.”
Cartoonist Gemma Correll has a self-deprecating sense of humour and an obsession with pugs, and her comics are always a quick pick-me-up during a busy day.
Humans of New York is wildly popular, but I can’t help including it in my list –Brandon Stanton photographs regular people around the city and has such intimate, honest conversations with them. I’m always touched by his posts.
My friend Erin Jang is an art director and illustrator, and she sees life in such colourful, graphic ways. Her photos of her son canoeing or a corner of a museum always inspire me to look more closely at the world around me.
I have a new obsession with following ballet dancers on Instagram! This School of American Ballet student posts such stunning videos of her rehearsals.
