LIFESTYLE | 5 useful newsletters to brighten your inbox

Oh, email inboxes. 

I have such a love/hate relationship with mine.

When I first upgraded from my 13-year old emo email address (which was something along the lines of suga371 - god help me) and chose a more professional address (, I felt super sophisticated and having a near empty inbox with nothing marked as unread was really satisfying to me.

Over the years though, this has changed a lot. I get so much junk email that just looking at my inbox gives me anxiety. Luckily I do still get some good emails like blogging opportunities or, um, packages being sent out, but as a whole, apart from these, there didn't used to be a whole lot else.

Until I decided to up my email game and sign up to some semi-decent email newsletters. Nothing amazing, of course, but just a few to give me something interesting to read or to brighten an otherwise boring day.

Here are my favourite newsletters.

Formidable Joy | UK Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Blog | Lifestyle | 5 useful newsletters to brighten your inbox | LuckyTrip | Time Out London | The Lineup | Travel Zoo | Emerald Street

I love Emerald Street, a bite sized daily email curated for savvy young professionals. The newsletter covers lifestyle, beauty, fashion, food and more and also includes restaurant recommendations, book reviews and discounts. There's also a small round up at the end of each email with more professional reads; think current news, thought provoking features and interesting articles that are worth creating conversations over.

C'mon, there needs to be at least one wistful bargain related email subscription, right? I may have never actually booked anything though travel zoo but I still scroll through wishing I was on holiday rather than stuck in the UK reading emails...

Time Out London is my go-to place to what's going on in London and it's usually via this newsletter that I get updates about some of the coolest pop-ups in the capital. There's usually exclusive discount if you're a member too.

For those who like their email newsletters to be a little on the spooky side, The Lineup is the newsletter for you. The content varies from addictive and unsolved murder crimes, bizarre Halloween costumes and creepy ghost stories. I love reading this when I haven't felt creeped out in a while and it often leaves me in an internet black hole for a few hours, reading all about the paraformal. It's perfect for Halloween too!

Even if you don't have the app, the Lucky Trip newsletter is definitely worth subscribing to. Each email is jam-packed with travel inspiration and most recommendations have a theme, too. For example, the latest newsletter included a list of bone churches around the world for Halloween and focus on an abandoned doll factory. There's also the 'LOL FLIGHTS' segment which includes deals on flights 'so cheap it's almost a joke...'

These are just five of my favourite email newsletters, but it has taken me a while to find ones I love! Even now I get bombarded with many I forgot I signed up for and have to unsubscribe but these ones have stuck. Do you have any email subscriptions you think are worth signing up for? Let me know!
