In Seven Days Around The Web
After what feels like a year-long sabbatical from the internet, social media and the likes in 2017, I would like to announce my glorious return to these realms. Having avoided most blogs, websites and social media accounts does mean that I'm a little rusty at finding the best links the internet has to offer. But it's early days and almost everyone is publishing a mixture of resolutions, reflections and *shudders* fitness inspiration articles, none of which will be featured here. Without any further rambling, here are this week's treasures of the internet.
This week's roundup includes an archive of the world's best everyday objects, an artist celebrating the female body and an Instagram account noting the unintentional curated beauty of our Instagram archives.
- AnOther Magazine's Thea Hawlin introduces me to the art of Antonietta Raphaël, whose beautiful drawings embrace the female body in all its glory. Her works are currently on show at Museo Carlo Bilotti Aranciera di Villa Borghese in Rome.
- Copenhagen is probably one of the most beautiful city's I have ever visited. My friend Katrin shares her comprehensive 24-hour guide on This Is Jane Wayne.
- I'm usually a big fan of T Magazine but this week's "My Detox" theme – including Ana Kras' 'life-changing' morning drink and Margherita Missoni Amos' 'cleansing and energizing' morning juice – is just another sign that the healthy cleansing detox trend has gone too far.
- I'm always on the hunt for some houseplant gardening tips: Gardenista shares 11 ways to keep houseplants happy in winter.
- An oldie but still a goldie: A portrait of writer Philip Pullman by Sophie Elmhirst for T Magazine has fanned the flames of my admiration for the author even more – if that’s even possible!
- We all love everyday objects, don't we? Alisa Grifo and Marco ter Haar Romeny have taken their fascination a step further with their art project Kiosk, archiving the world's favourite everyday objects. Stevie Mackenzie-Smith shows a selection of their archive, boasting over 1,300 objects, on Another Magazine.
- This Twitter feed – it has always fascinated me how sculptors could create veils in marble.
New York-based freelance writer Alice Gregory discusses her daily routine, how she copes with distraction and what it means to be a writer today, on Fold Magazine.
The Reset Series
Lindsay Holland of Ropes of Holland has just started a series titled "The Reset Series", where she discusses mental health and anxiety and gives tips on how to cope, especially in January.
Ana Kinsella and Stevie Mackenzie-Smith have started a podcast, Layers. The first episode of Layers is all about new beginnings and how we express ourselves through our wardrobes, from weddings to first days at work.
