High Gloss, high livin'

Can't wait for High Gloss Magazine's inaugural issue to launch February 1. The newest addition to Internet magazines is run by some of my favorite bloggers: Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita, Erin Gates of Elements of Style, Shannon Wollack of Life.Style., Kyle Knight of Knight Moves, Lauren Rauter of Rock Paper Scissors, and Ashley Steen of Orchard 11. (Side note: If you watch Chelsea Lately you may recognize Shannon Wollack's husband as the redheaded, goofy comedian who is often on there!) I'm interested to see each of these different bloggers bring their ideas onto a common platform.

The magazine is based in Houston and will be devoted to design and lifestyles. In a recent interview with curbed.com, founder and editor in chief Paloma Contreras said "I’d say about 40 percent of the magazine will be devoted to [interior design]. We are dedicating about 20 percent to fashion, 10 percent to entertaining, and 10 percent to travel. Our goal is to make High Gloss “a guide to a well-lived life”."

In their own words...
"High Gloss is... ..is glamorous, modern, and chic....loves high style, but can't resist a good sale....is constantly searching for inspiration, even if it meansscouring the globe....is about living a fabulous life with grace and style....appreciates great design in all forms....embraces change but loves old favorites....loves to entertain with good food, a beautiful table setting, and even better friends....is all about the mix: high mixed with low, bold mixed with neutral, modern with classic, masculine with feminine....is a guide to a well-lived life."

Should be quite a treat! For now we'll just have to resort to the High Gloss Blog and the blogs of the ladies above.
