Check them out! ;)

XY, pour homme seulement

La Presse présente XY, un magazine virtuel pour hommes.

Visuellement aéré et attirant, les articles sont bien écrits et intéressants (oui oui!), les sujets très diversifiés, les images attirantes, et surtout, pas de pitounes décoratives en vue!

À lire! (Oui oui!! haha)

Busy, sick, busy-sick

I’ve been busy first days of the week (with migraines), then sick, now I’m busy-sick! ARG! What a weird week! (My man’s sick as well, with a lot of fever and all… Compared to him, I look like I’m full of life!) :(

Anyway, I think I wont pressure myself into blogging until I get better, unless I have a very big crush on something until then and can’t resist! lol

I’ll leave you with this… I received this week my copy of Famous Québec Magazine (they give it in Famous Players Cinemas): a full page just for me! FULL PAGE! How awesome is that, right?! It’s in French, so if you can’t read it, you still can SEE it!

YAY!

Full page article & Blueberry Tea

Blueprint is Dead.

OMG I’m sooo sad right now!!

I just learned that my favorite magazine, Blueprint, will print out it’s last issue Jan/Feb 2008. Why, oh, why?!?!

They will include some Blueprint-like content in Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine… Why!? I don’t wanna get married, I want Blueprint!!!!!

It was just the perfect mag for me: fashion, DIY, handmade, tips & tricks… Plus it was sooo beautiful, and I’m difficult on that aspect! WHY STOP IT!?!?!??! *I’m about to have a meltdown* lol

Now I have to figure out the refund process for the rest of my subscription, and *try* to replace Blueprint with another not-so-perfect magazine… Gosh…

It’s a sad sad thing…

Blueprint’s fonts obsessed

Since receiving my Blueprint magazines, I’ve been obsessed with the fonts in that same magazine. Really. Obsessed.

Today I went on a search to find out the what they are, and how much they cost!

—————

– First up, the Blueprint logo, which is Fling from ITC, at $39 USD:

—————

– Next, the text is Filosofia from Emigre, a serif font I actualy like (!), at $95 USD for 7 styles:

—————

Last, but not least (my favorite), a superbe accent font, named Kursivschrift from Linotype, comes in 5 styles at $24 USD each:

—————

My! That Kursivschrift is REALLY tempting!! I WANT it! Now!

Funny thing is, I have had this new font crush (that I actually have) for a few months now, which is Matrix Script Book, from Emigre. It’s awesome and pretty! Check it out:

—————

I’m soooo “au goût du jour”! lol

I love mags

I love mags! Not the car wheel things, the readable kind ones! Online mags, printed mags… and now I love PDF mags!

So much selection on the PDF-mags.com portal, from everywhere in the world, in many languages, so less paper and trees used (the earth will thank ya!), so much different styles and subjects… It’s like a mag-heaven!

Just download your seletion, and read! If you want to print it, do so! At least, it’s print on demand, which is also much better for mother earth than just printing tons! And if you do a mag, submit it!

One thing I think is missing: a search engine or some sort of screening tool! It would be great to be able to select mags from their language or the subjects they are about!

A few great finds:

I REALLY feel like doing a mag now! What you think? :)

Magazines: décision finale

Blueprint & Plaisirs de vivre Magazines

J’ai fait mon choix final d’abonnement magazine pour la prochaine année! (Voir ici et ici)

J’adore le mag Blueprint! Frais, inspirant, amusant, et totalement magnifique à regarder avec sa grille graphique sublime et ses fontes parfaites, j’adopte!

Il est franchement peu coûteux, donc…

Je m’abonnerai à Plaisirs de vivre aussi! Un magazine québécois, bien conçu, aux sujets variés, extrêmement bien écrit, toujours inspirant et superbe visuellement, je ne peux m’empêcher de le vouloir!

J’ai l’impression que je garderai peut-être cette sélection pour plus qu’un an…! :)
