Can I Get Some Minty Fresh Over Here?

Whilst out on the thrifting adventure yesterday afternoon with Lauren - we stopped in at a newsagent; walking in I was muttering: "No... they won't have it yet, it's too early... it won't be out yet, not here in little old Tasmania."
With my eyes scouring the long magazine racks: Frankie, Yen, Oyster, Russh...
"Oh poop. It's not out." - I said as I turned to my right to see Lauren flicking through a new Martha Stewart magazine.
O
ut of the corner of my eye, the spunky blue Peppermint logo caught my eye.
Hurrah!
I picked it up excitedly, flicking through the divine smelling pages of the eco-friendly magazine and stopped at page 25: the advertisement for That Vintage.
A huge wave of warm, gushy proud feelings filled my heart.

I purchased it right there and then - even knowing that my subscription copy is on its way!
The little buzzes of working your butt off to afford such paper-glory for my little label, is still so very awesome to me.
This issue of Peppermint is by far my favourite (and I'm not being biased!) - the story of Baked Relief as told by Danielle Crismani had me smiling and also had me in tears.
You. Must. Get. A. Copy.
