The latest issue of online magazine Maeve came out this Wednesday and it is chock full of fantastic things to read, look at and win!
I am still reading through the articles and even though I am not a mum - their main target audience, I really enjoy this mag. I think I am going through a stage where I am hearing a lot of negative things about being a Mum - women chatting and whinging about all the things they have given up to become mothers, the sleepless nights etc. Well to be honest all of that negativity scares and at the same time annoys me. Im already scared enough about becoming a mother and if I don't start hearing more positive things about motherhood I may just give it a miss. Ok so I've gone off track a bit here and I could probably write a whole post on being in two minds over motherhood. What I wanted to say is how positive Maeve mag is about motherhood and being a women in general. The content is creative, inspiring and honest which is refreshing. This is only issue two and hopefully there will be many more.
In this issue I am really enjoying photography by Ulrika Kullenberg (starts pg 10). For the Love of Shadows. Ulrika writes, '...sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who notices the shadows. No one else seeks them like I do. Sometimes the shadow is even more beautiful than the object itself.' I love this and I have a crazy vision of Ulrika the Shadow Hunter, dressed in black, like a shadow and with the ability to turn invisible when the sun goes behind a cloud!
There is a fantastic story on Operation Beautiful, pages 17-20. A simple act of leaving a kind note to cheer up someones day or even change a life which all started by a women in Florida who, herself was having a bad day.
Little Gallery on pages 93 - 104 by Belinda from Gretchenmist. We share a love for the colour green.
And in the giveaway section (pg 157) you could win one of my Little Indie Girl brooches! YAY!
