In the age of Instagram, it can sometimes feel like everyone is a lifestyle blogger. There are so many people that post the same photos of the same sunsets, the same avocado toasts, the same cappuccinos, and the same picturesque streets. Despite this, there are some people who have made a life and a career out of it. In New York City, there are countless lifestyle blogs, but here are some we think are worth remembering.
Erica launched her blog Egg Canvas in July 2014, and she’s since become one of the go-to lifestyle bloggers and Instagram accounts in the city. She’s the digital art director at Barney’s New York (so you know she has impeccable style) and has a BA from Rhode Island School of Design in graphic design. According to her website, the name ‘Egg Canvas’ came from the Korean word for ‘egg’, dalgyal, which she’s been called since she was a child. Her blog is full of bright, beautiful photography, fashion inspiration, and lots of ice cream.

My Amagansett kitchen is my workshop & my sanctuary – a place I seek comfort, take risks, and hone in on tried and true techniques. There is a lot of trial and error as well as an embracing of creative instinct. It is also where I will develop and shoot my first cookbook….

Grace Atwood grew up in Cape Cod, and her youthful and beautiful blog, The Stripe, has taken the blogging world by storm. Her blog has the typical foodie and fashion finds, but she mixes in plenty of DIY content. She does a DIY designer series in which she makes jewelry and crafts, and that’s what really sets her apart. Aside from DIY, The Stripe is still an excellent resource for style inspiration (Grace’s style is feminine and classic) and ideas for things to do in NYC.
