my favourite websites of 2012.
The amazing thing about the Internet is that we don’t have to read a limited selection of newspapers – we have endless choices in what we like, discover and read. I wanted to share with you my top five websites that I visit for inspiration, be it art, writing, fashion or design:
o Suitcase Magazine: My friend Lucy freelances for the magazine and which is how I first discovered it. After reading the amazing print edition and bookmarking the online site I fell in love with the aesthetics and unique style that the magazine has. Founded by two young women and having their own pop-up shop, the magazine is different from the others and the content isn’t at all predictable.
o i-d Magazine: I like how easy the site is to navigate. And the fact that people Lena Dunham have been on the cover. The film section is my favourite as it’s always up to date with the latest short films or film festival news.
o Independent Fashion Bloggers: By far my favourite online community for relevant and timely articles about blogging and writing. IFB offers advice, tips and opinions on what it’s like to be creative and how to do something special with it.
o Tierrdrop: This is my favourite tumblr. I am never bored or struggling to find fashion inspiration because there is heaps of inspo on here. The bloggers name is Tierney and she answers all questions submitted by her readers, even personal ones. Lots of Cara Delevigne, Lana Del Ray and Alexa Chung inspired outfits.
o Ideas Tap: A new discovery for me, this is the best idea ever. A social network for creative types to find out opportunities (as in, they offer money to fund your idea) and to connect with other like-minded people.
I’m always on the look out for new websites, blogs, Tumblrs etc to add to my list – if you know any good’ns let me know! x x
