You’ve seen our #NoScrolling man, he’s there to warn you when you’re mindlessly scrolling through a feature at the speed of a Snapchat; encouraging you to back up because you might be missing something. We know we’re not the only ones out there producing content worth your while, which is why every Saturday we’ll curate a #NoScrolling reading list. Just like our favorite classic movies or the restaurants we’re regulars at, they’ll be content we want to consume then come back to (maybe even multiple times over!). Drumroll please, here’s our first round…
Cherry Bombe The Cookbook, don’t even get us started. We’ve been waiting for Kerry Diamond and Claudia Wu to put this thing out ever since the inception of their magazine. We know they say don’t judge a book by its cover, but the header image of this story speaks for itself…the cover is just as delicious as what’s inside. Plus, not to be a Narcissistic Potato about it, but there’s a recipe from Danielle and Laura in there, too!
The Group – Laura recently devoured this book on a trip to Miami. The 1963 novel from Mary McCarthy follows eight women from Vassar after they graduate, and really delves into each of their stories. If you like reading books with a classic Manhattan backdrop (this one’s 1933) that’s super women-centric (sign us up), this is a great one for you. It reminded us of Rules of Civility, also a favorite of ours.
The new issue of Self Service (also known as Danielle’s bible) is out September 26th: For us, this magazine is always a home run.
The InStyle October issue has Julianne Moore on the cover. And what a shoot! We have loved and followed Julianne Moore from The Big Lebowski, to An Ideal Husband, all the way to The Kids Are All Right. She truly is one of our favorite actresses, plus ever since our Auntie Laura Brown became Editor-in-Chief of InStyle, we kind of can’t get enough of it.
Get lost in Ludwig Bemelmans How To Travel Incognito – it will give you a taste of so much of our inspiration for our relaunch and redesign. Do that, or get a martini at Bemelman’s Bar at the Carlyle Hotel. Potato, potata.
We’ve been really curious about NBC correspondent Katy Tur ever since The New York Times did this amazing feature on her. We don’t like to get political, and we’re as tired of hearing about politics as you are, but Tur’s book Unbelievable: My Front Row Seat To The Craziest Campaign in America, is one our Associate Editor Catherine claimed to be the only thing she could stomach about the election. (i.e. she loved it).
Nostalgic as ever, we are always and forever Fiorucci fans, so when Business of Fashion did an article on its return, we read it thrice over.
So, remember not to scroll too fast and, for many of these, you can’t scroll at all…Enjoy your Saturday at the pace it was meant to be enjoyed.
