The September Issue: Elle on Sustainability

I don't often buy glossy magazine's these days, but there's always something about the big September issues of fashion magazines that still manages to tempt me into making a purchase.

Introducing… the Quite Delightful project

Back in September 2014, I placed an order for the the first issue of a new erotic magazine for women called Quite Frankly.

Women with... Continue Reading →

SLiNK Magazine
