A curated list of literary goodness to keep you entertained, in the loop, and inspired.
– KEYS SOULCARE
The list of written and visual finds that cross our path, pull us into new worlds, and give us something to chat about goes on and on. (And we feel endlessly lucky to get to share, discuss, and swap links with you!)
We’ve gathered some recent (and forever) gems to keep building your feel-good media diet — touching on topics from style and travel to growing through life with bravado and grace in equal measure. In other words? We’ve got you covered.
Actress, show host, and self-discovery icon Drew Barrymore’s latest venture, DREW, is the realization of a childhood dream come true. We love the story — and the quarterly print magazine that came as a result. It’s the kind of glossy you can wind down with before bed (think: intimate profiles of designers, chefs, and community advocates) or pop into for a quick activity like a prompted sketch session, horoscope reading, or flower arranging tutorial.
Digital community and storytelling site TueNight flips the script — and shows off — all of the things happening with women age 40+. (We’ve got to brag here that Keys Soulcare editorial director Margit Detweiler is also its editor-in-chief!) The juicy reads cover everything from changing careers to navigating multiple life stages, hopes, and dreams happening ALL at once.
The Good Trade
This is a resource-rich, thought-sparking site that you bookmark once — and allow it to be your guiding light for even more bookmark-worthy destinations. Keep tabs on both the site and newsletter for representative shopping guides, personal essays (about relationships, solitude, life lessons, and more), and playlist recommendations from rising star talent from around the globe.
Queer-focused and created publication INTO asks — and answers — the question of, What are you into? Readers, subscribers, and writers are invited to share and indulge in the latest discoveries and epiphanies on culture, music, art, and the news through personal essays and reports on community. Feel the love, resistance, and beauty throughout this blossoming online mag.
Medium’s platform is filled with more excellence than we can write about. One of our faves? Human Parts, which allows us to share the stories of neighbors far and wide — and, along the way, find a bit of ourselves within each strangers’ stories. From loves lost to senses of self-found, this collection of humor, grief, and the details of everyday life is a welcomed read for everyone.
This bi-annual, woman-centered publication highlights contemporary fashion, art, and of-the-moment celebs to give you the inspo to live a little closer to the edge. Come for the frame-worthy covers and fashion spreads (featuring the likes of Zadie Smith, Simone Biles, and Beyoncé), but stay for the introspective personal essays and intimate interviews that feel just as worthy of a personal moodboard.
Girls’ Night In
No need to feel guilty about caring more about your latest robe score than what you’re gonna wear “out-out” here. Girls’ Night In is an introvert’s dream, and a two-piece online inspiration combo — one part digital magazine, one part newsletter — that’s sure to cure your FOMO and inspire peak self-care rituals, too.
