I am a magazine lover/hoarder, I have been ever since I went to art college. I used to go and buy my magazines plucking them off the shelves and paying the full cover price but then as I got older (and naturally wiser) I started signing up for subscriptions. If you are anything like me, you see how much money you will be saving as a subscriber and immediately sign up, and then before you know it ... you have so many magazines coming in the mail every month... that you can't keep up!
Over the weekend I felt it was high time that I took on the task of ploughing through some of my magazine pile (before next months come!) I headed out to my sun-lounger and dove in. I loved dedicating some time to seeing what was on all of those pages, I managed to cover Bon Appetit, Better Holmes and Gardens and I made it about a quarter of the way through this months absolutely gigantic ELLE Magazine issue. I always find it inspiring to get a glimpse into other peoples creative lives! I particularly enjoyed this months issue of Better Homes and Gardens and loved the feature on interior designer Kishani Perera, she has a fabulous eclectic style with lots of Moroccan influence! you can take a look at her website here http://kishaniperera.com/ One of her quotes in the BHG article really resonated with me "Style is innate. Embrace your look and be fearless."
It's so easy to question your style at times but you really have to just go with your gut and be comfortable being you, whether it's the outfit you're wearing or the color you're painting on your wall, embrace what makes you happy and go for it!
The illustration above was created from a photo I saw of Kishani in the BHG magazine. Of course I loved the fact that her dogs were in the shot :)
Thanks for stopping by.
