There's something about Vogue that is timeless and elegant and it's still my all time favourite fashion magazine. They published a book Vogue: The Covers looking back chronologically at all the covers that have graced the newsstands. I would love to get my hands on one of the illustrated cover magazines. It's too bad fashion magazines don't do illustrated covers anymore. Well, I lied, Harper's Bazaar did one of Lily Allen last year. Now I regret not buying it. vogue covers / harper's bazaar
With Christmas just around the corner, it's so easy to get caught up with the sales, presents and food. It's so easy to forget that there are so many that are living in poverty and cannot afford a fraction of the luxuries we have. I love the posters for Oxfam's Christmas Giving Campaign this year. For the holidays this year, you can buy a school meal for a child, a healthy herd for a family or stock a cereal bank.
My friend Melissa, shared a link to the images above awhile ago. They capture various moments of the Hajj Pilgrimage that attracts thousands of Muslims to Mecca every year. Every Muslim who can afford it must take a trip at least once in a lifetime. It reminded me of the Vice Guide documentary I watched last year. I had no idea what the Hajj Pilgrimage was before this and I'm glad to say I thoroughly enjoyed watching this. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onvpqqDNiE8]
