If you're looking for great, FREE sources for design, fashion and entertaining inspiration, you're in luck. In the past year, online magazines (web-zines or e-zines) has grown tremendously. I, for one, am a huge fan. These magazines are economical (most of them require no monetary subscription), convenient (items showcased often have a direct link to locate them online), and easy (no more clipping out ideas from magazines and filing them in my binders--now I just save an electronic file).
In case you're unfamiliar with the e-zine world, I'll share with you a few that you should check out.
Rue Magazine-Full of fashion, finds and design this is "your pathway to stylish living," as they so elegantly describe themselves. They just launched their fourth issue yesterday. And just like the initial three, it did not disappoint.
High Gloss Magazine-A lifestyle magazine featuring interior design, fashion, entertaining and travel ideas. This is a pretty new e-zine, showcasing its premier issue this year. But don't let its age fool you; it's got some wonderful inspirations inside its "covers".
Lonny-Perhaps the forefather of the online design magazine craze, Lonny has set some high standards since its launch in October 2009. Created by a photographer and a designer, this magazine never lacks in stunning visuals and tips on lifestyle and home decor.
Ivy & Piper- This Aussie-based mag is in its infancy, but has shown great promise in its first two publications. A self-proclaimed "fashion for the home" web-zine, it has captured its readers with beautifully inspiring spaces and finds.
House of Fifty-This quarterly e-zine (the others mentioned are bimonthly) is set to launch in May of this year. Founded by the creator of the blog Isabella and Max Rooms, House of Fifty's mission is bring you "ideas for inspired living"ranging from interior design to fashion to organizational tips to tasty dishes.
