YEARS ago, fellow busines journalist Lelet Perez (from Manila Chronicle then Singapore Straits Times) and I used to hang out at Red Ribbon in Quezon City just talking about our lives and non-existent lovers hahaha. Lelet (now called Tish) moved to New York about 10 years ago I think and she was able to work in trade publications, one of which was a Conde Nast title. She has just emailed me about her latest project and I invite everyone to click on the link below.

EARLY this year, Tish Leizens had a career goal while editing the textiles page for Home Furnishing News magazine of New York City.

The Bushkill resident wanted to launch her own quarterly magazine that would display upscale furniture and household accessories for every room for affluent consumers interested in home decorating, gardening, traveling and outdoor sports. She started on her mission a year ago and by February, she had to leave her job with the Conde Naste publication.

"I've been working on it from 8 in the morning until 11 at night," said Leizens.

That dream will be unveiled in March when Our House magazine goes out to an anticipated 8,000 subscribers with a circulation of 16,000 and is presented at the Homebuilders Association show at Split Rock on March 10-11.

"I realize this area is more tourist-driven, but I wanted to come out with something to bring back to the area," said Leizens, the editor and publisher.
