If you claim you’ve never fallen asleep with your laptop after a night of flipping through webpages, you’re probably lying. (We’ll be the first to admit, the 3am — or 3pm — click hole is all too familiar.) But despite the unlimited amount of web space out there, it’s all too easy to fall into a pattern of the same recycled content. Say goodbye to your boredom once and for all. Today on TTS, we’re rounding up the hottest, up and coming websites for your scrolling pleasure. You heard it here first: Whether it be inspiration, recommendations or advice that you seek, read on for seven of the sites currently on our radar.
Real talk: We don’t always have our shit together. And that’s okay! Founded by Boss Babe alum Amy Woodside, OKREAL celebrates and supports women at all stages of their lives and careers. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just figuring it out, OKREAL offers up wisdom and advice we can all live by. In the New York area? They host rad mentor circles that allow you to connect and learn from real girlbosses. (Pssst: Catch their interview event with our founder on November 5th — get in on it here.)
Passerbuys is your destination for shoppable lifestyle content and in-the-know guides. We’re not just talking clothes and shoes, though: Here, you’ll find suggestions ranging from Glossier’s Boy Brow to White Girls by Hilton Als. The site was born out of founder Clémence Polès’s love of people watching, and offers an intimate look at women and their spaces. Think of it as your older, cooler French girl-chic BFF.
If you’re planning a big wedding, party, or event, you’ll want to bookmark The Venue Report ASAP. The Venue Report is your go-to guide to gathering spaces and celebrations — whether that’s an engagement, work event, or a glamping trip. They do the work of finding breathtaking spots so you don’t have to. You’ll also find weekend guides, stories, traveling destinations, and #interiorporn on the site. The Venue Report has everything you need to create a memorable experience, stress-free.
When we talked to the ladies of How You Glow, they doled up wisdom such as: “Pleasure is a huge element of health.” For babes who like our cocktails just as much as that kale salad (#balance), the How You Glow philosophy is one we can get behind. The site takes a work hard, play hard approach to wellness, emphasizing that indulgence is just as much an element of health as is mindfulness. Dive into these gurus’ picks for music, style, dining out, working out, and more, and you’ll be living your best life in no time.
Sand & Such is a web-based magazine centered on sleep and the rituals surrounding it. Pre-bed rituals, dreams, and lazy morning playlists are just a few of the things you’ll find on the site. (Think of it as people watching in the most intimate way.) Scroll through interviews with creative individuals — and try to catch up on those zzz’s afterward.
For info on how the stylish half lives, look no further than Citiphile. The site offers comprehensive city and style guides, brought to you by NYC and L.A.-based insiders. They get the scoop on everything from happy hour destinations to people watching spots so you can live like a local. When your standard dinner spot is feeling a bit lackluster, turn to Citiphile for inspiration.
Beauty junkies, take note. Beauty is Boring reminds us that it’s anything but. Founded by a makeup artist, the website demonstrates beauty trends and gives product recommendations. The platform appeals to both industry vets and amateurs alike, providing illustrated face charts alongside easy to follow tutorial videos. Peep collabs with brands like Marc Beauty, and find endless beauty inspiration on their Instagram feed.
