asking for trouble

Wish Magazine

How pretty do my products look? I got a sneak peek at this photoshoot which will feature in the debut issue of Wish, a new independent magazine from Carrie, the girl behind the beautiful WishWishWish blog.

Wish is full of what matters in life: charm, love and nostalgia, without the usual advertisements and mindless ramblings found in most modern magazines. It features illustration, lifestyle, travel, music and interview along with fashion and shopping ideas with sensible prices, all presented in a perfectly pretty way.

Sounds good, right? Then pop over and pre-order your copy for £5. I hear they’re already selling fast so you better be quick!
