These days it seems like all my favourite magazines are dissapearing off the shelves… first it was Blueprint by Martha, then my beloved Domino, then Gourmet! I guess it takes a lot more money to produce magazines these days! But there are so many fantastic magazines popping up on the internet these days that I feel like the world is somehow making it up to me! So here is my round up of my favourite online magazines, hope you enjoy!
S Magazine Produced in both Portugese and English, this is an amazing Wedding magazine. So pretty and inspiring. Even though it’s meant to be for weddings, I can’t help but adore looking through the pages for inspiration. The Evora Blues article in the current issue is so pretty, I’m totally loving the royal blue and pink combo!
Sweet Paul Magazine Sweet Paul is a fantastic combination of recipes, homewares, articles, crafts, the list goes on! All beautifully presented, the current issue is the ‘kids’ issue. Oh my gosh, the strawberry marshmallow milkshake!? Need to make that! And Easter may be over but there are some great craft ideas to try out too.
N.E.E.T. Magazine The closest ‘real life’ magazine I know compared to NEET would have to be frankie magazine (my favourite magazine - Australian but you can get it at a lot of places, look out for it!) NEET is an a super cool fashion magazine, with gorgeous photo shoots and the best part… if you see something you like, you just click on the link and it will take you straight to the website to buy it! Don’t you wish real magazines could do that!? I personally would like to buy everything on the wish list. Lust!
Lonny Mag If you, such as me, miss Domino magazine then Lonny mag is the answer! It is actually produced by one of the staff members of Domino magazine and that really shows. Just like NEET magazine you can click through on any pieces you see to buy. As an interior design student, I am massively inspired by Lonny, and I particularly like their Market sections (oh my gosh the Punk Sophisticate section - I’ll have it all please, especially that lucite coffee table!) and I’m loving the outdoor tent in the entertainment section
If Friends got one thing right, it’s the ugly naked guy. In a city packed with so many people, you always want to make sure that no one can see you when you don’t want to be seen. (Even in the ‘burbs, you don’t want someone to call you their ugly naked guy.) I inherited a terrible set of blinds in my bedroom windows that had to go because I have allergies and they look like they’d been collecting dust for decades. Roller shades are arguably the ultimate in privacy for windows, but they tend to be really expensive and/or ugly. Curtains, (albeit cute ones), have had to do ‘til now. This easy IKEA hack is perfect, especially for when it’s time to turn on my window A/C unit, (which will be too soon). -EL
