The home of J. Crew's Jenna Lyons was featured in a recent issue of Cookie Magazine. Above is her child's nursery. Cookie is the latest publication in a long string of magazines to fold.
Well, you’ve likely heard by now that Gourmet magazine is folding, as is Modern Bride, Elegant Bride and one my favorites, Cookie. I’m a subscriber of Cookie and this now explains why Condé Nast was on my caller ID last week. Hmm, what’s next?
Cookie has been a great alternative to the standard parenting magazines. It featured family homes with hip décor, out-of- the-ordinary gift ideas and great travel tips. I enjoyed their features of working parents who are well-known in the world of art, fashion, design, cinema, literature and other fascinating fields. Cookie made you feel like you didn’t have to give up style once you became a parent. You could still achieve a level of cool-ness, even though you took on a new role as parent.
These are tough times we are living in, my friends. While I no longer have a magazine coming in the mail each month, the bigger picture is that a group of talented people have lost their jobs. It’s disappointing and sad. I hope we won’t lose more of our newsstand favorites. It’s just not the same without them.
