That April 2005 cover of Vanity Fair is simply stunning!

I would love to win a subscription to Ocean Home because there is nothing more relaxing than flipping through the pages of a fabulous glossy!! :)

Bluewing said...

Im a bit dissapointed in Vanity Fair.
The Issue with topmodels from eastern-europe. It says clearly "from Russia" on the cover... though Carmen Kass is not from Russia, they should do some research before saying that because where she's from people realy dont tolerate russians.

But the whole summer thing you just posted ... awwhh i miss summer so much!

Jaime said...

Love this post- makes me very very excited for my FL weekend getaway in a few weeks!

I'd love a subscription because Boston winters are long and cold and this would warm me right up! :)

Leah said...

I can't wait for summer now. When I saw this post, I want to go to the beach and get my tan ASAP. Hahaha!
