There’s a few magazines that I’ll collect and treasure- too beautiful to cut out and scrapbook (these pages don’t need iridescent stickers plastered over them to shine), too precious to ever consider recycling and indefinitely worthy of bookshelf space. Lionheart Magazine is just one of the handful, and upon opening the first page, it had me at hello. Not only does it remedy the yearn for a good bedtime read, it’s handbag size (a novelty but incredibly useful quality for the impractical girl like me) and is filled with completely wonderful and inspiring content and writing- from outstanding creatives, recipes, points of conversation and of course, a hearty installation of fashion.
One of the things that makes this magazine so special are it’s motivational themes. Each issue is tied up with a word (‘Bravery’ was the first theme) which goes alongside a series of articles and pieces, to inspire, drive and uplift the reader- something I I can assure you, works. Lionheart offers profound, honest content alongside the feeling of catching up with an old friend over tea- heartwarming, and pretty lovely indeed.
Additionally, in fear of becoming a little over sentimental, editor and creator Helen was one of the first people to have faith enough in me to offer me a couple of magazine pages, to discuss and natter about my sartorial loves, and styling tendencies (hence the feature evolving to be named ‘Style with Olivia’ over the past 4 issues). It means, and meant more than anything to be given such a platform, and to be alongside such talented people- and for that Lionheart will always hold a special place in my little roaring heart.
