Peppermint Magazine

Dwell South Coast are all about finding the new and interesting so while waiting for coffee a few months ago at Blue Swimmer Cafe in Gerroa I picked up this magazine for a quick read.  It looked cute and quirky but it's so much more than that!  I had to go buy a copy immediately to share with my Dwellster buddy - why?  Cause it's full of the most awesome stuff that's why!

Basically its a lifestyle magazine but it's the actual lifestyle that it's promoting that really appealed.  Peppermint is all about STYLE - SUSTAINABILITY - SUBSTANCE covering subjects and issues such as waste, fair trade, charity, consumerism, self-belief, self improvement, environment, food and more.

It's a new take through fresh eyes about how we can live a more natural life with an awareness of what is going on around us and what we are putting into and onto ourselves.  It promotes buying and supporting local but also doing things for ourselves, growing our own, making our own and being kind to all around us including the place where we live.

The images are just beautiful, the articles inspiring, even the paper it is printed on is just so lovely and natural.  It really does make you think about how we are living our lives and what we are teaching those who come along behind us and the world we are leaving them to inherit.  It comes out quarterly but you can also get a taste at
