Super pretty room, right? It's from the February 2011 issue of Country Living UK magazine. And I didn't have to scrounge around for a back copy, I read it on my iPad through Zinio! It's a nifty app that opened up the world of magazines to me... especially the ones that are difficult (and expensive) to get here in Dallas. And they have back issues! This one was full of lovely photos, that of course look amazing on the screen. And it looks like Zinio can be used on Android as well, so that's good news for non-Apple folks.
I realize that there is a way to order some of these magazines through Apple's Newsstand, where they are even a bit less expensive. But I don't like the Newsstand interface or how magazines are organized on it, or how you buy through iTunes which is frustrating to search, as everything gets jumbled up together. So until they sort that out, I'll happily stick with Zinio.
It's been awhile since I mentioned that I once livied in London. It was only for a year, but it left a lasting impression and cemented my affinity to Britain. The Brits have a fantastic eye for color, and a knack for creativity. So the ability to access these magazines is wonderful. I'm so inspired by them!
And it gets even better. Through Zinio I can even get Mollie Makes! When reports of this awesome British craft mag began to appear on the internet, I was crushed to learn that it wasn't available in the US. Well, it's on Zinio! So now I am one extremely happy pupster! (picture me dancing a jig)
Oh yay, the latest issue is out! Now you know what I'll be doing today. Well, along with choosing paint colors for the kitchen/laundry/den/study... yikes. Reading a magazine sounds much more fun.
ps - anyone know if I can get Cath Kidston wallpaper in the US?
