    Oh my gosh!! I LOVE how Styled. turned out!! The layout is so crisp and clean and easy to read, and every picture is beautiful! You should be so proud, you did an amazing job!
    My favorite features were “140 Characters”, “Carded at the Door,” and “Wardrobe to Party”…but it is so hard to choose! :)

    WOW!!! This is so beautiful! My favorite is “Wardrobe to Party”, I can’t believe the amount of beauty and creativity contained in these pages!! “Tea for Two” was a close runner up, Chica is sooo darling in those photos!! Almost done gushing- bear with me- the drawings of the tables? Perfect. It is totally perfect, and I want to print it out. Are print copies for sale by chance??

    The necklace is so pretty but please do not enter me in the giveaway, I am still happily drowning in my giveaway loot from your “Celebrate Joy” design contest prize package :)

    Love your blog and this is a perfect magazine!

    I loved the sprinkle feature! It was so beautiful and creative! I have been known to eat just a spoonful (or two) of straight-up, unadulterated sprinkles, so it was kind of a no-brainer that I loved it.

    Wonderful magazine, will read through it more carefully soon. Loved 140 characters most of all. The styling and photography are inventive and fun. I did find quite a few typos, however, and that was just on a cursory reading.

  • Alexandra

    I love the simplistic style, and the personal touches you add throughout the magazine. I think the different style or background for each section was clever, and not too overbearing. You managed to make it look artsy and personalized while keeping a professional look. I think it is awesome. I know so many people who would want a copy of this!

    Thank you so much for the chance to enter the giveaway .. that’s how I found your blog which I love!

  • Jessica

  • Jhitomi
    March 29, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    Wow what a pretty, clean looking style to this magazine. I loved scrolling through all the photos, and even the food looks too pretty to eat, like the breakfast burrito and the ice cream sprinkles. I love that you can quickly scroll to pages you want and see on the bottom bar all the photos.

    Congrats Victoria!!! I am so excited and happy for you. I especially love the subtile of the magazine {the art of merry making}.

    My favorite was definitely the Wardrobe to Party feature. I just love that idea. I think I”m gonna do that for my birthday party this year. I can’t wait to find the perfect outfit for it!!!

    Big hug to you Victoria.

    cute magazine! I really liked the “how-to’s” (how to make your own confetti, how to make a party hat, and also how to make the sweet treats bag). I also loved the party theme and party outfit sections!

    I love that magazine, there’s so much pretty photography. My favourite features are “Checkered Pink”,”Make your own Cabochon” and “wardrobe to party.”


  • Felicity
    March 29, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    The pictures are so pretty and I love the idea behind this magazine but is it okay to add some constructive criticism? I truly mean these in the nicest possible way – I want this magazine to succeed because the idea is so wonderful.

    1. I like incorporating quotes when you have multi-page pictures but make sure they make sense (April bubble? May feathers? That doesn’t make sense or rhyme.) Same goes for the sentence about lips watering. Lips don’t water. Mouths and eyes water.

    2. I think a proofreader (or a new one) is called for. …bright macaroons dotted about give the impression that a sparkled smack could happen… A sparkled smack? What would that be? Also, the second sentence on page 42/43 isn’t really a sentence.

    I think addressing the two issues above would make the magazine seem so much more professional and less amateur. Good luck with future issues!

    • Victoria
      March 29, 2011 at 6:05 pm

      Hi Felicity thanks for commenting. I’m always up for a little constructiveness! I tend to use very artistic language when describing my events and my designs. As a designer, I find it fun to play around with phrases and ideas to convey a meaning, even if it is not always grammatically correct (hence Styled. with a period:) The phrases you quoted were meant to be read the way they were written- no mistakes there!

      That is one of the great things about being able to self publish online, you can express whatever it is you’d like and don’t have to always follow the normal rules! In the end as long as my readers are happy and I have advertisers willing to support me, then I am happy to share my passion with my own unique voice!

    this is such a beautiful publication, you must be very proud…. you should be!
    I loved the tea for two article and the instructions on how to make your own sugar cubes were a perfect touch and demonstrate how simple things and attention to details can make all the `difference

    Love, love, love it all. I particularly like the feature on the colored sprinkles. I am originally from NZ and we have a specific name for these bright colored mixed sprinkles – Hundreds & Thousands. They are very much a part of every childhood party in NZ (as are chocolate fish!).

    Good luck with your magazine I am sure everyone will love it!

  • TatiAbaurre

    omg! I absolutely love, love, love, the magazine :) it is really my style and I really enjoyed going through the pages.
    I specially love how colorful it is, on the details – like confetis and sprinkles – really pretty photography.
    I also really love the part with sketches on table decoration. The drawings are really pretty and have a lot of character.
    Finally, I really loved how the recipes are showed like a what to do manual with beautiful pictures of the steps!

    Really nice! Congrats :)

    I loved the sugar cube idea! So stinkin’ adorable. It never occurred to me that I could make my own. And the possibilities are endless.

    Hi Victoria!
    I was happy to see this post! Your design and “how to’s” have helped make my creating so much more fun. Naturally, I don’t come up with my own creative ideas but I am inspired to recreate yours! I have recreated your “Bird Nest” baby shower for sister in law and I am planning on recreating “Sly Fox” baby shower for a cousin this spring! Did I mention that you have passed on the torch of bunting love? I make bunting if not anything else for family and friends birthdays! Bunting says “Party!” to me!

    Thank you for sharing your ideas to help the less creative :)

  • Annie S
    March 30, 2011 at 8:07 am

    I really liked the Styled to Party feature because I thought it would be just about the outfit, but there were so many gorgeous pictures that showed so many other things, I was blown away! On another note, what I super love about your online magazine is that I can just click on the things I like and be whisked away to where I can actually buy them. This is a really amazing thing you’ve done.

  • missy
    March 30, 2011 at 8:27 am

    woooowww! i spent the day looking for my phone and a minute to call and tell you how AMAZING this is! first, i am now craving sweets! second, i am literally digging out any form of string/ yarn i can find to wrap lemons and burritos. (except i dont have tortillas and we are having chicken soup–gonna be hard to serve that wrapped…ooohh, maybe i can wrap the bowls!)
    third, the pics of your lil chica having tea literally made me tear up. im home with lulu and may have been inspired to pull out the real china and practice for london 2025.
    all of you worked so so hard and it is beautiful!

    Can’t wait to spend real time reading and absorbing. I will be poring over the pages and…oh my! it is all just so up my alley. I’m 55 and I have always loved the look and vibe you have here. Decorating, entertaining, enjoying the colors, fabrics, materials for creating.

    oh. my. This magazine is candy for my eyes and I anticipate spending many more hours curled up with my laptop enjoying it. I delivered my daughter in September on my birthday, and ever since I have been thinking about how I am going to plan a party for us this year that is worthy of two major milestones- her first and my thirty-fifth. I saw SO many wonderful ideas in your magazine- the details of your Checkered Pink & Bricked Monogram shoots made me swoon- and it is very clear to me that Styled. is going to be my go-to bible for planning the perfect soiree for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    What an incredibly beautiful and inspiring way to start my day (over in the UK). Thank you! I can’t wait to try out some of the little bits and pieces in my events coming up over the next few months. The layout is exquisite – minimalist and beautifully colourful, and the photos, oh the photos! If only I could take photos like that!

    Particular favourite…um…ooh difficult – but I was particularly inspired by the jars of lemon ricotta cake (favours). Always on the lookout for innovative favours :)


  • Charlotte
    March 31, 2011 at 3:51 am

    I have to say I read it three times already, literally scrutinizing every detail – if I had a magnifying glass to pore over each picture I would have.

    I loved your grown-up lemonade stand, the heart shaped sugar cubes (a must-do project) and the sprinkles feature!

    Blue Skies,

    Victoria, you are so refreshing…and your magazine turned out so perfectly delightful!
    I really liked the concept of the Sprinkles feature…taking an inspiration from a photo and getting different interpretations on that theme is so interesting :)

    another web-zine to love! I liked the sprinkle article the best runner up that pink paper (crepe) wall! Just the other day my 4 year old daughter decided she wanted a rainbow painted on her wall (which isn’t happening!) so I tossed out the idea of doing a paper one by making TONS of paper hearts and doing basically a confetti rainbow so I loved the wreath and all those little cirlces in the garland – super cute! I think it may just help me sell her on the idea although I’m thinking she may like that pink wall too!

Every page was beautiful but my favorite part was the Bohemian Easter. It was lovely and very unique and it inspired me (which I love).

    What a beautiful magazine! I hope there is more to come! I loved the colors in the Grown Up Lemonade Stand. I just bought a yellow short-sleeved cardigan today at the local consignment store and was thinking how cute it would look with a dark blue top–and then I see this photo! Everything about the shoot was just gorgeous.

  • Karel

    Gorgeous photography – amazingly consistent in rich saturated quality! I find myself wishing there were more notes on how to find some of the products in the photos. The beautiful lollipops as just one example – I wonder where I could find those?? Very inspirational all in all.

  • Janet
    May 22, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    I just found your magazine today and loved looking through it! Great photography, ideas and very inspiring overall.

    I only wish that there were perhaps more step by step images to accompany the how-to directions (I am definitely more of a visual learner). I also agree with Karel that it would be great to have a ‘Where to Buy’ section for the products featured in the stories.

    Thanks, and definitely looking forward to the next issue!
