My apologies for the lack of update – I owe you a lot of magazines reviews.
I’ve been quite busy these days. Living away from my hometown, I finally settled down in the city I hate the most, Jakarta, to do an internship with one of the teen magazines. I’m still kind of figuring out what is it like to be an intern. Also, the working culture here is slightly different than in Australia; so there are a lot of times I feel that I’m struggling to adapt to their working style.

Anyways, I’ve been catching up with the glossy world via the Net and wow, the amount of glossiness I’ve missed since I lost contact with the E-world is outrageous. Here I am weeping because I am and will miss a lot of amazing stuff that hits the newsstand. FYI, there’s a very limited access to international magazines over here, and I hate it.

Glossy bits...

- Twilight.

It’s out, out, out! Be ready for eternal damnation.
And with Twilight sweeping the globe with its vampire love, check out Entertainment Weekly collector’s edition cover. I wished I could get my hands on it (even if it was just for browsing purposes).

Vanity Fair (Kate Winslet on cover) also features an article about Twilight alongside a great photo shoot of the cast.
I’ve read that some of the local papers in USA were also giving out some special feature on Twilight to celebrate the release of the movie. Even The Age (Australia) is swept in Twilight's frenzy - I was flabbergasted to see the weekend insert's cover featuring Rob & Kristen.
So much is going on about this, I’m surprised to hear people working in the local media industry still saying, “Twilight? Is it a new TV series?”
Go hide yourself under the rock for the rest of your life, missy.

- Teen Vogue has a new blog – Teen Vogue Daily. I like it, it saves me a lot of time clicking to the different blogs they have.

-(I assumed) Sportsgirl catalogue is out – the main theme is Festival. It's available online for browsing, so if you're after some summer inspirations, head to their website. I'm loving the 'Mix the Sun with the Fashion' spread.

So what else is going on in the glossy land of magazines?
Gimme, gimme updates…
