BONJOUR MES AMIES!!
How are you all?! I know I have been the world's worst blogger and you are all probably "like, soooo totally over it" but I have a (few) very good reasons for my ridiculously long and neglectful absence. Honest.
1) I have been trying to juggle studying, friends and life at Cambridge University for the past 8 weeks. You are all wonderful, intelligent multitaskers so enough said.
2) In my extremely rare moments of free time from my crazy, hectic life over the past six months, I have single-handedly been organising and creating my own bi-annual online high fashion magazine. Yep. I KNOW RIGHT?!
I know it'll break the whole 'anonymity code' thingymajjig but I really don't care. I've worked so hard on it, I'm so proud of it, and I love you all so much that I just can't wait to share it with you all and to hear your feedback.
It's called Go Lightly Magazine and it's a bi-annual online high fashion magazine for stylish dreamers who live 'la vie en Vogue'. Fashionable, fun, frivolous and oh so feminine, its a celebration what it is means to be a young girl, trying to find your place in the modern world and remaining classy and fabulous whilst doing so.
Although I've done 99% of everything - from the layout, to the website, features, styling, articles and interviews (all using only MS Word and Paint. Yep. I Know Right.); I have also got some wonderful contributions from some of my most incredibly talented and fashionably knowledgeable friends from some of the UK's most prestigious art colleges, as well as from the blogosphere, including Erika From Café Fashionista, and CosmiCaroline.
You all mean so much to me, and have been SO supportive of everything I've done in the past that I really hope that you will all be there every step of the way on my new stiletto-clad journey, and that you will become life-long readers. So without further ado, mes belles cheries, here it is. The creative project that I have poured every ounce of time, energy, creativity, and life-long love of fashion and magazines into. It has been the most fun, frustrating, and indescribably rewarding experience of my life.
Darlings, to begin your fashionable love affair PLEASE visit:
If you visit the website, read the magazine, follow it on twitter and facebook, and/or promote the hell out of it by telling all of your readers, family and friends, I'll love you even more than I already do. And that's a helluva lot.
So yeah. Now six months of work is done, I'm going to give myself a well deserved rest this weekend, spend a lovely Mother's Day avec ma mere and try to get some uni work done, before I start work on the AW11 issue. And catch up with all of you of course.
Can't wait to hear what you think!
Have an immense weekend darlings, tell me all about it
Stay safe and chic mes cheries,
English Rose x
