As the launch was such a feast for the eyes I almost felt obliged to illustrate it!
The cupcakes by Kristabel were actually amazing.

Last Sunday I was invited to the launch of 'Wish' magazine, which is the wonderful work of Carrie and Lucy - 'a magazine for girls with a Peter Pan complex'.
I made my way to a little pub in North London, which had been transformed into a deliciously decorated, flowery world. Every little detail had been thought out, from the enchanting cake stand down to every last flower and doily. We were drinking Hendricks Gin 'Wish' cocktails, being spritzed by Penhaligon's perfume, knitting bows and being drawn by live illustrators.
The whimsical environment matched the nostalgic and dream like feel of the magazine. The magazine itself is full of interviews, nostalgic articles, DIY's, fun quizzes and illustrations - so beautiful that you will want to give it pride of place on your book shelf.
I was in a sea of vintage, brogues and flowery dresses. I met some lovely people, took a lot of photos, drank a lot of gin and ate far too much cake. If you are still craving more Wish action have a look at these ace ladies - Amy, Ellie, Emma, Rachel and Olivia.
After having a chance to look at the magazine I can't wait to receive my own copy, pour a cup of coffee and settle down for the afternoon. The magazine is available to buy from the 21st May from magazine.wishwishwish.net - go, go, go.
