Huck Magazine

I've got a huge soft spot for magazine design  so was delighted to see this fun little competion from Huck Magazine .

You might remember a while ago Wallpaper*’ hosted a similar competions where you could design your own cover online, and now Huck has taken this concept a step further. The new issue has been and released with a blank cover just waiting to be filled in. The new issue, dubbed the counter-culture issue,d comes with a large magenta sticker ready to be peeled off and for you to start decorating how you wish. Then all you have to do take a photo of your masterpiece and email to the editor. Easy. 

How would you decorate it?
I'm thinking something along the lines of a collage, i'm a sucker for cut + paste!

Lissie first popped up on my radar a few months ago, back then I had dismissed her as just another girl with an acoustic guitar. After seeing a few of her sets at the Glasto and few other festivals, my mind has been well and truly changed. 

Just check out this cover of Bad Romance....

That means I'm happy....  well at least for a while.

An Education

I can't believe it took me so long to watch this, but by gosh I loved it - and not just because I love the gorgeous face of Dominic Cooper.  

Everything about this movie was amazing, from the the way it was shot and of course the fantastic costumes. 

There's just something about that old school glamour I fall for every time. I'm off to perfect my up-do....
