Entries in Magazines (8)



Most Sundays, all I want to do is lounge and do pretty much nothing. And that's exactly what I plan to do today, except I will also be enjoying the new online issue of Est Magazine. The magazine is filled with the best in Australian and international design, interiors, fashion, luxury goods, travel and lifestyle. But this particular issue they've dedicated to The Art of Simple Living—my favorite subject. So if you have no plans for today, I encourage you to sit back with your tablet on hand and browse through the gorg pages of Est. Enjoy!

It seems it was only yesterday when we were clicking our champagne glasses to ring in 2012. I can't believe June is already here and Summer is fast approaching. So if you haven't started getting ready and are in the mood for those lazy Summer days, Sweet Paul has the perfect motivation for you. His much anticipated Summer issue is here full of food, chockablock with crafts, and stuffed with style. “The issue is going to give you a ton of charming, unfussy, and doable projects, ideas, and recipes that are sure to make this summer truly special for one and all,” assures Paul. The digital edition is available now and can be downloaded for free here. But if you rather enjoy browsing through the gorgeous pages of a printed edition, a limited run will be available exclusively at U.S. Anthropologie stores and online here starting June 15, 2012.  So this weekend you can sit back and relax, with laptop or iPad in hand, and enjoy another scrumptious Sweet Paul treat.

Aren't you glad it's Friday!! I certainly am, my friends. It's been a week of running around, a great deal of subway rides and lots of back and forth making sure the final touches of my present project go as smoothly as possible (more details to come once I'm finished with it).

The Spring issue is chuck full of great decorating ideas, savory recipes and loads of DIY projects for the whole family. So set some time aside this weekend to take a peek and enjoy this very sweet treat. Thank you Paul for yet another gorgeous edition.

An Australian Twist

Today you're in for a treat as the fourth issue of EST magazine is out. In case you're not familiar with this gorgeous webazine, it comes from our friends Down Under. EST is relaxed and stylish, is not self conscious and it does not take itself too seriously. Its editors describe it as loving the sun but also appreciating the seasons. It loves looking to the past but also likes shiny and new - this is what gives EST a fun Aussie twist. This edition is dedicated to Scandinavian design, which you know I have a major crush on. So sit back, enjoy and get ready to be inspired by all the eye candy that pops from its pages. Also, remember to enter this week's giveaway here to have chance to win a chic and trendy leather iPad case.

Stack Them up

I don't know about you, but I love my magazines and I'm finding it harder and harder to part ways with them. But because of lack of space, I can't afford to keep them for long. That's why I'm digging this new storage system by Njustudio, a young, alternative design firm located in Coburg, Germany, known for its simple, sophisticated and subtle ideas. With the Hockenheim Stool you can stack your periodicals and magazines in style plus enjoy a cool and clever seating piece. You have the option of getting it in newspaper or magazine size. Stack up, sit down and enjoy your reading.
