Love for Emma

Screen Shot 2013-01-17 at 8.38.41 PMThere is nothing I love more than Phoenix creatives designing new and beautiful things. My favorite local magazine at the moment is Emma Magazine with the tagline “If Martha Stewart was a twenty-something.” Seriously, someone pulled the pages of this magazine from my brain.

The great read spotlights some of my favorite Phoenix haunts, adorable DIYs, recipes and fashions that are actually my style and it is completely refreshing. I also love the style of photography that captures all the above.

In the two issues that have come out, Emma Magazine has had recipes for delicious soups (I am going through this phase where all I want to eat is soup), DIY wood transfers, crepes and “Mama Duds,” which I am not pregnant, but I wanted all of their picks.

One of my favorite part of the magazine are the printables! I printed this cute calendar (with my signature glasses) for my work desk and I can’t wait to use the gift tags.

I was even more in love when I flipped to the next page and saw friend Chelsea Brown in her own spread. Chelsea has the great blog Tea Talk and always shares her great daily outfits and thoughts on Phoenix, so they couldn’t have picked a cooler chick.

I am always looking for new magazines to read and love. What are some magazines you are currently reading?

Resolutions…

I am back… Kind of.

Currently, my laptop is somewhere in California getting fixed after meeting an untimely death thanks to a cup of water.

I made a few resolutions, which I never do, but I think these ones are attainable. One is to maintain this blog. And once I kept my bestie Macbook back, I will! [Edit: I just got it back!] In between working, hopefully traveling, eating, running and planning a wedding (some life changes happened between this and my last post), I am definitely going to post.

In the meantime, I will update whenever I can mooch off someone’s computer…

Curious, did you all make any resolutions?
