Viva Print Media: ELIZA Magazine

Technically, ELIZA Magazine is an online mag, but you can order hard copies. Have you read it? It started pubbing in 2007, but I just stumbled on it about a year ago. Their mission is to address real women with affordable clothes, great deals and realistic models. 

Overall, it's a pretty enjoyable read. The variety of articles targets a number of hot topics for the modern woman. The photoshoots are interesting (sometimes outstanding), and the visual presentation is pretty eye-pleasing, in general. Sometimes the images remind me of ELLE magazine. 

For instance, this shoot from their Summer 2009 issue just hits on all cylinders. Great house, great property, great clothes:

Then this fantastic outdoor shoot from the Spring 2010 issue. That beautiful gown is played off to perfection against the frigid scenery. It's all The French Lieutenant's Woman.:

An electrifying night shoot. They really use great, interesting new faces:

ELIZA seems to have a lot of fans. If you haven't already checked them out, they are definitely worth a read.
