about us:

annabelle magazine is a bimonthly lifestyle Web-based magazine, dedicated to the proposition that we don't have to have a lot of money to have a fulfilled life. annabelle reflects the interests and whims of the editorial staff with contributions from emerging and established artists, musicians, and writers.

annabelle subverts the expectation that old-fashioned ways have to be conservative. We are inspired by old stuff—in design and editorial content.

Our belief is that there are many lifestyles, and all people, plants, and pets have the right to be creative and to inspire others.


Alisa Welch has been known, on occasion, to party like it's 1999. But she generally parties like it's 1950 and goes to bed by nine. This could change very soon as she has recently come under the tutelage of a certified "Mac Daddy" who has promised to show her how to "roll like Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg." Stay tuned.
Sarah Thurmond feels for all the wallflowers out there. At parties, you're likely to find her by the chips and dip. She likes to attend parties more in the winter than in the summer ("Tonight I'm wearing my long velvet skirt!") and she hates it when she gets hiccups after only two drinks. Her favorite party food is her friend Sarala's meatballs dish. You will not see her dancing at a house party; she feels there are other more appropriate places for this display of joy.
Candice Owens accidentally crashed the first cocktail party she ever attended. She wrote down the wrong address, but the house at the address she wrote down was also having a soirée so she was none the wiser...until she asked the host how he knew the host. Now she never asks anyone how they know the host, and she sticks to safe topics like politics and religion.
Allison Williams used to wear a cowboy hat to parties, but now that she lives in Manhattan she's learned the vital importance of wearing black and drinking from a cocktail glass. However, she lives in hope that the next great New York party to go down in history will occur on her fire escape and she'll be able to wear a cowboy hat to it.



As always, THANK YOU to Paul A. Thompson of 14th Street, New York City, for hosting our site for a whole year and never asking that we publish his poems. Thanks to our faithful readers. Let's party some time.
