MY FAVORITE MAGAZINES

love-magazineLove Mag

Always love the cover of this magazine. So fun and colorful. The editorials are always new-thinking, there are plenty of cool collages, and it just makes my creativity boom. On top of that it’s a huge magazine (perfect for a fashion work-out), so there are many hours of reading.

unconditional-magazineUnconditional

I love this women focused magazine. Made by women, for women, and primarily about women. It always tells some incredibly inspiring stories, about career and juggling being a girl boss and having a family. Also, they always come out with two different covers, so you can choose the one that pleases your eye the most. It comes out biannually, so I feel like I have something to look forward to every time. It’s page-heavy (which is not a bad thing!), and I have a tendency of reading this magazine like a book, which is very rare.

dansk-magazineDANSK

As the title says, this is a Danish creation, and obviously I love everything Danish. Especially when fashion expert Uffe Buchard & Kim Grenaa is behind. It’s esthetically pleasing and made in a thick paper material, which makes it feel very luxurious. I always get inspired reading DANSK, and open my eyes for something new.

Where to buy ‘em?

If you find yourself shopping magazines in Lower Manhattan, here are my favorite places to get my fix. They always have magazines from all over the world:

Casa Magazines, 22 8th Ave

Mulberry Iconic Magazines, 188 Mulberry St

Top 5 Podcasts I’m listening to ATM

For a while I’ve been enjoying listening to podcasts and recently also gave audio books a shot. I have an hour commute to and from work, and I like killing the time with learning something new or getting inspiration in some way. So when a physical book is a little too much for the tired morning-me, a podcast is perfect. As I’m writing this, I’m actually listening to a newly-found podcast, that might become a favorite (and appear on a future list, who knows?). I definitely found the podcast jungle a little confusing in the beginning, and therefore started looking towards recommendations from especially Mimi Ikonn, but also a few fashion bloggers. I figured some of you might be in the same boat, so here is a list of the podcasts I’m loving right now:

At Home With…
by Lily Pebbles & Anna Newton 

I have been watching Lily Pebbles for a long time on her YouTube channel, and I was so happy to hear that she, and her friend Anna Newton (from The Anna Edit), were launching a podcast. Lily and Anna visit different inspiring personalities, from the beauty and fashion industry, and get invited in to their homes. The podcast is a mix between a personal chat and “seeing” the home they are visiting. I’m so in love, and feel very inspired every time I listen to a new episode.

Hey, It’s OK…
by Glamour UK

Jo Elvin invites guests in to the studio to discuss different subjects beginning with the question “Is it okay to…?” This podcast has honestly saved my bad Monday mornings and way too long afternoons with conversations reminding me that it’s not just myself who don’t understand small talk, who’s boyfriend hates my new pants (that I love), and all those things I can build up in my head. This podcast definitely makes me commute shorter and I often catch myself laughing out loud (embarrassing in a filled up subway car).

The Daily
by The New York Times

Daily in-depth news in 25 minutes! I love listening to this podcast on my way to work, and I enjoy learning American politics for example. Michael Barbaro interview journalists who specialize in the certain happenings every day, and it makes it much easier to understand the news.

Hidden Brain
by NPR

In Hidden Brain is hosted by Shankar Vedantam who touch upon different subject in every episode. It’s a slightly heavier podcast, and I have both learned about why couples often go wrong when they argue, about the science of fear, about the classic Thanksgiving mistakes etc. This is a very eye opening podcast, and if you want to learn something new, this one is for you!

So Money with Farnoosh Torabi
by Farnoosh Torabi

I’ve never been good with numbers. Economy? Nope. I’ve always just avoided red numbers, but I’ve never invested nor have I started saving up for my pension. There’s so much I don’t understand, when it comes to money, and I really find this podcast useful. Farnoosh answer questions of many different character, and I love learning what to do. Often they apply somewhat to my own life, and so far I’ve learned a lot of financial words plus heard about many interesting personalities, their career, and how they’ve gone about their finances.
