BBC – Thread
In true BBC fashion (i.e. quality), BBC – Thread is a monthly online fashion magazine dedicated to eco-fabulous style. It has to be experienced to be fully appreciated, and I can’t do it justice in print. The interface sort of grows organically under your mouse pointer as you explore each month’s different feature articles, images and videos. Very cool.
BeThree hopes to stand out in the growing crowd of online-only women’s social communities/magazines. With sections on beauty, lifestyle & trends, nutrition, travel, life coaching and more, at first glance it looks like its competitors. So, what sets it apart? Spend two minutes on the site, and I think you’ll agree: there’s much to be said for a basic blog layout — clean, simple, not overstimulating. Sometimes less IS more.
Ever since the trip to the Benefit counter last week, I’ve been enamored with the line. They have so many fun and quirky makeup products with the *cutest* packaging. Did you know they’re based in SF? Bay Area represent!
Amazon.com – Women’s Interest Magazines
Huge savings on magazine subscriptions. I forgot that Amazon.com sold magazine subscriptions, too. They sell everything else, LOL! Self for $12/year ($1/issue), InStyle for $23.88/year ($1.84/issue), Vanity Fair for $15/year ($1.25/issue) — some of the best deals in magazine subscriptions I’ve ever seen, some as much as 80% off the cover price.
Just bizarre and thought-provoking lists of 5. That’s it — lists. 5 rejected titles for the latest Coldplay record, 5 “Web 2.0” ways to break up with your boyfriend, 5 more terrible fake reality TV shows, 5 terrible fake names for villages in England… I. Love. Lists.
I’m at a work lunch in a town called Brisbane today, which is a couple miles south of San Francisco. It’s kinda foggy down here. I’m glad I brought a sweater. I hope you’re having a great Friday so far.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
