About me


Hi! I'm dervla, I live in Manhattan with my husband, two young daughters, and a dog who frequently gets mistaken for a cow. I'm a book editor working on books in the world of interior design, gardening, and cooking. That's where my love for these blogs grew from.

I used to feel intense anxiety over the amount of information coming at me every day through social media feeds; from blogs to twitter to pinterest. So, I started The Curator as a way to control my blog reading addiction. I read hundreds of posts a day from cooking, fashion, and interior design blogs, and before my head explodes I use this forum to talk about my favorite posts of the day. This blog also serves as a place to store them for future perusing. I hope that you'll find something here to inspire you in your own life. I was born and raised in Ireland and moved to this country when I was 13 so I'll probably also annoy you with musings on home. I'm also constantly at my local farmer's market and tend to post a ton of photos about it.

I'd love to hear from you about any inspiring blogs you're reading that I don't cover. Or simply if you have questions. Please contact me at curatetheblog@gmail.com 

Thanks for reading!

  1. I ran into your blog on The Every Girl! I love it! I'm always drawn to people who live in NYC, as I plan to move there post-college. It's such a great place to foster inspiration and creativity. Thanks for gathering such great posts; I look forward to following you!

  3. Just followed your link from Orangette's comments where you said "you'll all" to Molly and I had to come see if you were from the south. Your About Me doesn't say but that doesn't matter because I am delighted that my curiosity led me to your blog. I read so many food blogs that I feel my head will explode sometimes too. I have started using Pinterest to save posts that I want to go back and read more thoroughly, especially recipes I'd like to make. And now I've subscribe to your lovely blog by email. So thanks.

    1. Hey Stacy, no not from the South. I'm Irish actually and a bit of a chameleon with accents so perhaps I just picked that one up? So glad you're reading :)
