A few months ago, in May, Carrie of wishwishwish.net told us a secret which had taken up a lot of her time during her last months at University. She and her ‘partner in crime’, Lucy of shinythoughts.com, had created a magazine. A magazine which is nostalgic, vintagey, stylish, dreamy, childish, creative, beautiful, British, timeless, lovely, exciting, and truly everything you could wish for in a magazine – Wish Magazine! I instantly pre-ordered a copy, which arrived yesterday after they had a few problems with the printing company at Wish house.
The 86 page magazine is full of breathtaking photos, vintage style clothes, shoes and accessories worn by beautiful models, lovingly drawn illustrations and calligraphy, a summer playlist, secrets by people from all over the world, a career quiz, a style section, a list of afternoon tea places you should try out, a poster, baking and a wonderful article about pen pals (…”about a time when chatting to a friend didn’t involve pressing ‘Enter'”). You simply cannot NOT love this magazine! As Carrie wrote in her Editor’s letter: “Wish allows space for dreaming, without bombarding you with advertising, unattainable price tags or unachievable body shapes. A true collaboration from girls across the universe sharing what they love best.” It’s not one of those magazines you can buy everywhere. It’s unique and full of love, made for ‘Early Grannies’ and people who don’t want to grow up.
Get a copy, a cup of tea and do nothing but reading this magazine for 3 hours while sipping tea..which is what I did. xx
