Welcome to Wish!
I’ve been so quiet on the bloggy front for so long recently that it makes me rather glum to think about it. But I won’t waste your time moaning about all that, instead I’m going to convince you that in fact, you’ll be pleased I’ve not been posting! Because…
I’ve been busy making a magazine that you will LOVE! Oh yes, from mid May, Wish magazine will be available for you to buy and devour with your friends! I am just so delighted to finally be able to tell you about it because for the past few months, even though I’ve been madly conducting photoshoots, emailing until my wrists permanently point upwards and not being able to sleep for stress, I’ve not been able to tell you any of it! The secret is that I’m making it with my best friend and we wanted it to be a surprise until the very end. So now, well, you’ll be hearing about it ALOT!
Why Wish? That’s easy, it’s named after my best friends blog and when I suggested the name to her, it seemed the perfect choice. Carrie from Wishwishwish.net is my bestie, my university buddy, housemate and that one that finishes off my sentences. It was her idea to create a magazine for her blog readers around the world that was slower and more meaningful than the stream of blogposts we consume every day. I said to Carrie at university in February, “I’ve always wanted to make a magazine and you can’t do it alone, so let me help.” From that moment, off we were creating an 86 page print magazine, deciding on the content together and just got on with it.
Now, here we are with amazing support from Penhaligon’s of London, a new paper baby that I am incredibly proud of and a launch party at the weekend! It’s SO exciting and rewarding! I won’t tell you too much about the magazine just yet, as you’ll be seeing lots of it soon no doubt but I can assure you, it’s full of beautiful, interesting articles, drawings, shoots and fill-out things plus a few surprises on the way!
If you squeal at the thought of Wish and would just love to be at our launch party then pop over to Carrie for the chance to attend!
Thank you Carrie and Miguel for the photos.
