Behind the Scenes of our Magazine!

All summer long Carrie and I tweeted, chatted and blogged about the creative baby which we made together. Partly for our end of university project, and partly because we wanted to make something beautiful for you, Wish Magazine was certainly very well received! I’ve been delighted to hear how many of you have bought a copy, if not have heard about our little journal of love through that ripe old blogging grapevine!

Sadly, the end of the summer season is up on us and our stocks have almost completely depleted so we’re going to be closing our online shop on Sunday 18th November so just over two weeks! Thank you so much to every one of your who have bought our magazine! Of course, if you live in the southern half of this Earth, summer is just starting – lucky you! So you may want to grab yourself a last minute copy to see you through the hazy days!

In June we set up our show at The Old Truman brewery as part of our uni showcase – we created a nook of a room with old tables and chairs, Wish paraphernalia and of course, our cute Cath Kidston wall paper!

Watch it all Happen!

And now! I’m so so pleased to finally be able to show you my behind the scenes of Wish Magazine video!!

I made it as part of the project as I felt that other young people who might want to do a similar project, or those of you who weren’t so familiar with Wish might find it interesting. It’s also great to be able to look back and remember the whole mad process! I am going to disclaim now though that it is 15 minutes long, so go grab a cuppa. (It also isn’t my finest video work! Juggling this with everything else in those 3 short months was a bit tricky so please don’t judge! hehe.) I really hope you’re able to watch it though – I’d love to know if you found it interesting!

To win a Penhaligon’s goodie bag of Wish Mag treats, just tweet your mag creatively with the #WishMag hashtag! – The competition is still open until we close sales so do show us how you’re enjoying your magazine!
