OnLine Magazines are Cozy!
I am still a big advocate of real books – and magazines. However as the recent recipient of a new iPad (thank you Marc!!!!) I have to say that digital magazines are super cool. And I know there are tons – many which we already know and many even free if you already have a subscription. One of my favorite Apps for the iPad is called Flipboard and while browsing through the fashion section I came across an article from Elle Magazine about LVMH (the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesey Group that Selma Hayak’s husband Francois Henri Pinault is the billionaire head of) who has just launched 2 new online magazines (seems everyone is jumping on this bandwagon!) – DiorMag (all about the world of Dior) and Nowness – which will be “Monocle-like” with art, design and architecture rounding out the fashion coverage (btw, Monocle’s founder is Tyler Brulee who founded WallPaper Magazine and rebranded Swiss Air) Tres sophisticated! Perhaps a little more down to earth is the fantastic online magazine by my favorite Australian food stylist and cooking star Donna Hay – You need to subscribe to her magazine ($19.99) to get the App for free although you can sample 2 full issues before you committ (and I strongly advise checking them out, you’ll be hooked!). This online magazine is a foodie’s dream with lots of interaction going on – for example watch this perfect white cake get covered with gorgeous fruit in front of your very eyes! Donna Hay has such incredible style – check out this great interview with her and learn what the heck I’m talking about. More stunning photography… -I’d definitely say move over Martha but I have to say Martha’s online mag is good too and if you already subscribe to the magazine the App is free. Cocktail anyone? – we like that Martha! So lots of discoveries to make and sadly not nearly enough free time…Let me know what looking at! (and at the same time what book you’re leafing through – for me, it’s the Hunger Games – the first of the trilogy (thank you Gavin!).
Digital or otherwise, we just gotta keep on reading!
