Girl Lost In The City
Emma Gannon is the London-based blogger who’s pretty much winning at the internet right now.

The Dolly Mail
Landing in your inbox once a week, journalist Dolly Alderton writes about logging out of Facebook for good, fruit worth travelling across London for and the weirdest thing she’s done on a date. There’s also some life ponderings, musical obsessions and recipes you’ll drool over, as well as contributions from other fierce female writers.
That’s What She Said
Hate the same things as your friends? Love cats? Anne Donahue’s That’s What She Said newsletter is for you. The US based writer describes her musings as like ‘hanging out at the mall, but I make you listen to my opinions and look at Leonardo DiCaprio GIFs’, and to be honest, we’re not complaining.
The Ann Friedman Weekly
Sent out on Fridays, Ann Friedman’s collection of ‘great things to read’ compiles the best articles on the internet, written by Friedman and other great journos. Started in 2013, Ann talks about everything from Candian ketchup to Rob Delaney’s drunk history, and if you don’t want to shell out for the paid membership, you can sign up for the free edition.
If a weekly newsletter always leaves you wanting more, Femsplainer will fill your feminist gap Monday to Friday, curating the best articles on the world wide web that day, including job listings and GIFs (we love a GIF). Sign up for women in tech, being a bad bitch on a motorbike and how to survive parties where you don’t know anyone, and SO much more.
