10 Media Outlets Every Lifestyle PR Professional Should Follow

Every morning at 8 a.m., I get to the office, turn on my computer, and read the entire Internet.

Okay, not quite. But close enough. It’s part of my job to do a sweep of every major news outlet, checking for news about my clients, the industry, competitors, and any other notable stories that a company’s leaders need to know.

It’s also part of my job to keeping up with trends, getting better at my career, and understanding what’s relevant in today’s society. Pretty tall order, right? Luckily, my go-to list of daily media outlets help me stay on top of everything I need to know, from the latest trending makeup look on Instagram to the most important mergers and acquisitions of the week.

Lifestyle:

  • Refinery29: If I had to pick a number one, R29 would be it. Which is probably why I listed it first.
  • TeenVogue: I’m not a teen, fine, but TeenVogue is still relevant. Lately their articles have been spitting straight truth.
  • Bustle: An all-around great site with the most up-to-date headlines. If it’s a thing, chances are it’s already on Bustle.
  • Brit + Co: The ultimate DIY site. Enough said.

Career:

  • Corporette: An awesome work-fashion combo blog catering to overachievers.
  • The Everygirl: A down to earth site with some of the most inspiring career stories and advice.

Business:

These are all like spinach for the brain: Not the most exciting, but good for you.

Bonus:

The glossies!

In other words, print magazines that people are forgetting about. These all have webites, of course, but there’s nothing like the “thump”– the sound you hear of a print magazine landing on your coffee table.

  • Glamour
  • Vogue
  • Cosmopolitan
  • The New Yorker
