Introducing … New Contributor Louise to This Is Glamorous

IF YOU FOLLOW ALONG on Instagram, you may remember a beautiful grid of tiny illustrations featured there nearly a year ago; they were done by Interior Designer & Illustrator, Louise, who is currently based in Edinburgh. After the pleasure of a few lunches and cosy chats over wine in favourite pubs, it became clear that Louise would be a wonderful addition to This Is Glamorous and recently made her debut as Interiors Editor.

Read her articles on Gustavian stylebeautiful pink rooms to fall in love with, and most recently, an At Home With featuring Melissa Odabash, if you have not done so already. We are thrilled to welcome Louise as part of the TIG family and know you will love her work as much as well do.

And in other exciting news, some of your very favourites from & Belgrave Crescent are back and available for Pre-Order . . .

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

THIS WEEKEND we put up the Christmas lights and watched The Holiday with wine and popcorn. Yes, it might be a little soon, but this year needed cheering up, so we’re beginning early. We’re also wrapped up in the holiday mayhem that comes with tracking down missing packages and making sure everyone receives everything on time and are in the midst of beginning a brand new …

News 11.23.20 : Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

Six years ago, after I contacted David Fincher and told him I wanted to write an article about how he makes movies, he invited me to his office to present my case in person and, while I was there, watch him get some work done. On an April afternoon, I arrived at the Hollywood Art Deco building that has long served as Fincher’s base of operations …

Playlist 11.22.20 : Five Songs for the Weekend

Shygirl’s “Alias” is less than twenty minutes long, yet it’s weighty with the jolting hyperpop and club music that the London electronic artist has been making for the past few years. Each song is meant to show off a different side of her personality, a tactic that frees her up to play with a frenzied palette of sounds: “SLIME,” co-produced by the like-minded Scottish experimentalist …

Your Thoughts on Social Media and How I Got My Mind Back

AFTER I LEFT the (traditional) working world for good two years after I began This Is Glamorous, every night, before I went to sleep, I found myself really looking forward to the next morning. That first cup of coffee, reading, working at my desk in my pyjamas. It was, and has been ideal for a long time.

A Few of our Paris Editor’s Favourite Beauty Essentials

These days I am more aware of the time passing by than I have ever been before. I had the impression that yesterday was Monday, but it’s already the end of the week, and time is so fleeting. The only constant these days is how much time I have been devoting to taking care of myself. It has become part of the routine to mask and to take the time to apply all the creams and serums …
