I love blogging but nothing beats sitting down with a cup of tea and a fantastic magazine. I am a bit of a magpie and collect anything , so I have piles of magazines, some dating back to 1996!! I have done three continental moves with my cherished magazines and still get cross when I think of the ones I had to throw out. Some of my favorites are Elle Decoration UK Edition, Living ETC and since living in Australia I have found Dumbo feather pass it on, which is really a stunning 'mook' - half mag half book! Here is a blurb from their website that describes what the mag is about:
What unites the people we interview is their creativity, passion and integrity, and somewhere they’ve found the courage to fly. In their own words they tell you how they discovered their passion, what inspires them, the lows as well as the highs on the journey and ultimately why they do what they do.
The art direction, writing and even the printing is truly inspiring. I love the fact that it celebrates creativity and passion above everything else, they haven't succumbed to the big advertising campaigns that fill so many other glossies out there. Happy Friday to you all and happy reading.
