After weeks of waiting, Rue has finally arrived.This will have been all over the blogosphere by now, but I'll give you my thoughts anyhow.

I'm not a great fan of the cover, but look past this & oh my gosh, here is a magazine chock a block full of great spaces & wonderful articles. Editor in Chief & Co-Founder of Rue, Crystal Gentilello's Editor's letter emphasises the collaborative nature of the team behind the magazine. It is this spirit of community that is displayed throughout this marvellous production. The Rue team have set the bar high. Congratulations all round to the fantastic team that is Rue.
