Surprise! We are just about ready to release our very first issue, coming this June 2014. We’ve spent months planning, writing, editing, photographing and scouring the internet for the newest, greatest, most fun and most need-to-know people, places and things for you to devour on your summer vacation.
Of course, we’ve rounded up a group of stellar women, making waves in their industries, and spent some time talking to them, getting inspired by them, and writing it all down for you.
We chatted with author Rainbow Rowell about her work, the upcoming release of her much-anticipated novel, Landline, and just what makes her one of the most refreshingly modern authors writing today. We sat down with indie-artist Alexa Woodward and talked about her newest album and what it means to live a creative life. We’ve got some style inspiration from singer Alanna Stuart that is sure to add a few things to your own list of favorites. We even got the in-depth and behind-the-scenes story from some of the biggest women in web series (including Issa Rae, Ronit Aranoff and Julia Grob); and exposed the hidden lack of female film critics working in the industry.
Of course, summer wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the beach and we’ve got a DIY Boho Beach Bash that is easy to plan and quick to execute, but that will have you basking in the warm glow of summer in style.
Expect that and much, much more, including summer style, music, health and women we know you’ll definitely want to meet.
You will be able to purchase a print copy of your very own or read the entire issue for free on Issuu and here at lydiamag.com in mid-June. Keep and eye out here and on our Twitter for the deets. We can’t wait to share!
