Online Magazine Reading for You

There is nothing l like more than resting up with some good magazines. I love colour, design and find I get lots of inspiration from the pages of a magazine. It is therefore with surprise that I am finding myself more and more lost in the pages of a good online mag.

Check the following out

Papercut which focuses on fashion, culture and art. Amazing photoshoots and some very interesting articles. In the latest edition check out "Beauty-Conscious" , an article focused on animal testing across some very well know brands.

Pure Green Living Magazine. This eco-friendly design and style magazine looks so crisp and clean. See the info on Emily Anderson whose latest book "Eco-Chic Home" has sixty different projects for your home each re-using different household items from shopping bags to CD cases.

Gifted. Getting ready for Christmas check out Gifted. Over 200 pages of diy projects, shop profiles, free printables, and a gorgeous gift guide. Lots of inspiration for the christmas season.

Anyone know of some good UK/European online magazines ? Let me know so that I can add them to my reading list ;o) Happy Weekend all.
