Tuesday, July 15


I know that alot of you probably have a ritual or regime that comes into play whilst shopping. for example, my mum likes to start off with a skinny latte, and i know an awful lot of my friends who have an order as to which shops they visit, or as to which floor/section of the shop they look at first. My personal shopping trait is to visit the magazine section of borders before boarding my train/bus.

At the very back of the store (behind the manga/anime books) is the most wonderful magazine selection you will possibly ever come across. Borders is the only place in which you can find magazines from all over the world, whether they are independant or not. Each month they introduce a diffrent magazine, and alternate a few of the lesser selling ones each time. It is here i have come across some of my favourite magazines, such as the gigantic 'Paper' magazine, aswell as other more known magazines such as I-D and Dazed and Confused, and a selection of american magazines such as teenVogue and Nylon. The latest offering is 'Zoo Magazine' of whoms cover features the model Irina Lazareanu (why is she so badly recieved by bloggers? I find her ghostly bone structure quite enchanting...) and the musician Sean Lennon.

This editorial is one of the best i've seen in a while, and the accompanying article is a good read too...
*NOTE* however great the magazine is... how unfortunate it is to have to share a name with a lads mag...

Great photos; she is beautiful. Looks like I will have to check out "Zoo Magazine" at Borders at my next trip to the mall! :)

jayne said...

oo irina is quite captivating, thanks for sharing

K.Line said...

I actually like Irina. And I like to start shopping with a skim, extra hot cappuccino...

ANGST said...

That editorial is pretty kick-ass.
The next time I go to Borders, I'll have to look out for the new magazines coming in.

I guess my shopping ritual begins with a bag of Swedish Fish. Once that's done, I'll probably stop for a white mocha cap, and get down to business.

i love her. i might need to find a borders and pick that magazine up

On Track said...

I love these photos but i must admit that i do get a shock when I read the title Zoo and think of a mens magazine, maybe they should change their name ;)

Katlin at URPLE said...

I love this! She isn't my fave, but I really like her in this editorial. Our Border's probably does have the best mag selection, even if it doesn't have the smaller ones too much, but they're the only one I know that sells Vogue Italia in store.

Dapper Kid said...

Love the editorial!! Lol I was totally thinking the trashy Zoo at first!

Seraphine said...

i guess people without cheekbones are jealous of those who have them. especially if they have a unique look.
