Many of you probably know of Skirt magazine. Skirt is a magazine ‘all about women, their work, play, families, creativity, style, health and wealth, bodies and souls...’. Skirt prints in several cities, but if you don't have it in your area, you can also enjoy national I get almost giddy when I see a new issue of Skirt. I carefully fold the crisp newspaper like ‘magazine’, put it in my purse and wait for the perfect time to sit down with a glass of wine and plunk down on the sofa to indulge in this truly delightful publication. Each issue has great features such as ‘Skirt Loves’, ‘Skirt Mama’, ‘Skirt Events’ and my favorite, the ‘Essays’. The Essays are always my favorite part of Skirt as they are always thought-provoking, amusing, sometimes motivational and on occasion will cause you to shed a tear or two. One of the most moving articles I read that I won’t forget is We were the Hubers and We Lived Here by Christy Huber Rippel (featured in the Atlanta May 2009 issue) about a woman re-visiting her childhood home, the memories it holds and the heartbreaking reality of lifes unexpected turns. This is an amazing article you should really check out.

Skirt also features great items every month (many that are local independent designers), like this Filigree Thymes Perfumed Soap, $18...

This beautiful scarf by Echo Designs

These fabulous new perfumes by Benefit...

and these beautiful candles from Natural Selection Bath & Body...

There are really so many excellent features about Skirt, you just have to check it out for yourself. If your cities is one of the many to have the local printed issues, you have to pick it is such a treat!
