We need help! Aside from hundreds of free contributors, bloggers, photographers, illustrators and friends who regularly help to shape and produce the issues of sisterMAG and CVmag, we need help in the areas of design and editorial work (content & sourcing) in Berlin. We are searching for digitally-affine, interested and open people, who would like to learn from a young startup and who are open to all kinds of topics from muffins to nurseries, twitter to historical personalities, from art to commerce. We work a lot, laugh even more and are 100% convinced of the idea of digital magazines. We like to work with people from all over the world, who like to bring in their own ideas and who pay attention to details.
Anybody who is interested and who would like to do an internship at Carry-On Publishing, send us your application to email@example.com. We are looking forward to hearing from you! Below you find the full description (click on the pictures to download the PDF).
Best wishes from Berlin Wedding!
Yours, Toni, Alex & Thea

Once in a while I have the urge to hold on to a specific picture, article, project or recipe – so I just rip out the pages from whatever magazine it is that I’m reading and put them in my „magazine clippings box“ (which was supposed to become a neatly organized folder) to consult when needed.
With digital magazines ripping out pages suddenly becomes a fairly impossible task. So, we had the idea to enable you to keep single photos or specific articles in the new sisterMAG issues through social media.
While reading sisterMAG you can now digitally rip out pictures and pin them to your Pinterest boards: Simply click the Pinterest-button on the page. Furthermore you can share an entire article with your friends by sending the link by tapping on the Facebook- or Twitter-buttons (usually at the end of a feature). A little less chaotic and definitely more handy than my box-system. ☺
Maybe it is because of the German tradition to watch “Dinner for One” on New Year’s Eve: this day always has the connotation of black and white to me. You can get our your “Little Black Dress” (see mine here #ootd) (as long as you don’t want to stand on the streets to do fireworks, because usually you’ll freeze in those outfits) and mens’ white shirts will be ironed. At least these are the ingredients of my romantic New Year’s Eve fantasies.
Oftentimes the past last days of the year were not as spectacular as one thought. That’s why I hope you’ll all have a spectacular evening, you won’t hit someone with a car (we once did that sitting in a taxi and I can say: New Year’s Eve at the police station is NO fun) or get hit with a fireworks (hasn’t happen but I still wish that every year).
With today’s pictures I am still just picking out a few moments. As Cris wrote in his post today: there were too many pictures, moments and people I should include and mention (I can always say that “the colour of the picture” wasn’t right :)), however I just want to say THANK YOU to all of our supporters, friends, family and contributors. It was a great year: founding the company, 6 sisterMAGs, 1 CVmag, many new followers and readers, feature in the German app store, Blogst, Hive, many new partners, more than 700 participants of PAMK in the summer and in the end we were hit by one really great news: we are one (of very few) apps that are nominated “Best of 2013″ in the German Apple App Store!
Thanks you so so much! Everyone of you made this possible! Time to party tonight and think of us at one moment. We’ll think about all of you! :* Thea
P.S. I was too lazy to translate all the texts into German and some of the tiles don’t have a description. Excuse me, but I have to prepare a trifle for tonight :)

Couldn\'t have been a complete year review without including Victoria, who was the head and heart behind CVmag! Thanks so much!
Getting together at the Christmas market in Berlin: Victoria, Dorin and videographer Onn Halpern.

Happy New Year from the COP team! Have fun!
You are not making it easy with your wishes for coloured reviews ;)! From my “right hand” Tina (alias @mmemontagne) I got the wish to search for glittery pictures (I am still searching), emerald green came as a request from Jeanny aka Schinki @Zuckerzimtliebe and that’s why I was glad that Verena (@hanghuhn) was more merciful with me. Granted I don’t have “mint-coloured” pictures lying around my desktop but I was able to fill 15 tiles with moments and past pictures of 2013.
And the weirdest thing: I REALLY am wearing mint coloured pants today (without seeing Verena’s tweet beforehand)! If you want to see today’s #ootd, please click here.
I am still open for colour requests – what colours do you want to see?
The most mint coloured outfit of all times: pants, shoes and DIY sweater worn by Stiene for our shooting in Lecce in January 2013 for #sisterMAG6. She looked like a mint candy herself :)
Part of our pizza shooting for #sisterMAG7. I made all pizzas on a Sunday morning from 6 am to 11am, then Cris came over. In the end we stood in front of a massive table full of food and didn\\\'t know what to do with it … laughed about it and Cris took e
MINT JOKER (and one of my most favourite pictures of this year by Liron Peretz)
A special highlight was our dance shooting for #sisterMAG9. Here we see Vanessa (@midnightcouture), who was our ballerina for the day. The setting was in a huge hall in our office building (where we would move into right away since that day). Video by Onn
This year started with founding our company on 15th January: Carry-On Publishing. We have definitely lived through many moments together and I would not miss any one. Thanks so much, Toni & Alex for the many wonderful days and laughs! Lets do 2014 and car
Outtake von unserem Shooting in Paris mit Lindsey (@lostncheeseland), die gerade ein wunderbares Rosen-Kleid trägt und in der Nähe des Boulevard Haussmann auf- und abspringen musste. Ein sonniger Tag mit einer tollen Crew! Unten könnt ihr das ganze Featur
Detail of the sweater from #sisterMAG6, which is actually crocheted (was still featured in the knitting section :). You can find the tutorial behind the link below in the feature.
What I see on a daily basis: the Guggenheim museum on my mousepad and the graphic tablet. I probably have never spent more time in front of the computer than this year :)!
Also part of the dance shooting in #sisterMAG9: Kayla Henry for Contemporary Dance. The Canadian danced for us on the morning of her very first day in Berlin (probably she did not know what had hit her ;)). Click below to see the video done by Onn Halpern
I loved the many shootings that we produced. This is a shot done by Ashley for #sisterMAG10: We focused on toothbrushes, glasses etc. in order to bring more style into your bathroom, collaborating with the lovely Sunday Morning Shop.
Toni and me with the absolutely great Hürriyet and Rebecca during our Flower Arranging Party in August in Berlin. The two ladies were our teachers for the day, arranging bouquets and making flower wreaths. Cannot wait to collaborate more with them in 2014
The never ending water problem: we do not have a sink in our office, the coffeemachine doesn\\\'t work and water is often finished. We probably need to find someone responsible for our drink supply :).
Toni and Alex in our office. We see Toni after she told us all off because we cannot clean (we really cannot clean). Did you know that we are known to be the loudest on our corridor … we laugh too much :P!
Our review would not be complete without pictures from Sivan Askayo. The travel photographer has contributed SO much to sisterMAG and we were lucky enough to meet her when she came to Berlin. Below: Florence Feature in mint colours.

I was thrilled about the reactions of you yesterday about the idea of coloured year reviews. Thanks so much for your Likes and comments. A special thank you goes to Dorea who wished for the yellow collage in the comments on the blog yesterday. Thus please excuse the late hour but after a long stroll over Ku’damm today with the COP team (due to some hardware shopping), I spent the whole evening searching for yellow pictures. Honouring this I even wore the #sisterMAG3 puffy skirt in Yellow as #ootd today! In the end I almost couldn’t decide which sunny, golden-coloured and corn silk coloured (@mmemontagne – we have to discuss the names of these colours again!) pictures I should show you today!
I wish you a very happy and cozy evening. Let me know which colour should come next! Yours, Thea
Yellow was the dominating colour in our 7th issue which was titled >The land, where lemons grow!<. Paola, a friend from Bari, did not just show us around her town, but also modelled for our cover! Here you can see one of the (many :)) outtakes of our shoo
This year I was also lucky to work with very talented video guys, one of them being Claus from Agentur Gretchen. Here we were shooting the 2nd film for our PAMK meets Coca-Cola Initiative in summer 2013 starring Claudia Gödke (who also took the picture).
When I think about a yellow piece of clothing in 2013, I definitely think about this swimsuit for our beach shooting at the Baltic Sea in August 2013, all fifties!
Shooting in Lecce with one of Tonis best friends: Stiene, who comes from Belgium, but lives in Italy. Very sweet memories of photographer Cris Santos who was followed by our whole family carrying the props and equipment!
One of the most loved stories of this year: Elodie Love (@madamelove) introduces us to the secrets of still life photography and interviews artist Kevin Best.
In #sisterMAG9 we dedicated a whole section to a topic which was absolutely new for Toni and me: Pregnancy. Luckily we had a lot of help from our team and were especially in love with Jeannys (@zuckerzimtliebe) food feature about folate food.
A REAL peak behind the scenes. Toni tries on the skirt of cover Number 7 before fashion expert Evi continues sewing :)! And yes, we had a cushion underneath because neither Toni nor Paola have such wide hips!
The colour Yellow would not be complete without a picture of some kind of pasta. These orecchiette are originals from our travel to Bari / Italy. The ladies in the Old Town are still making them by hand.
2013 we started with our tutorials around bookbinding (we will continue next year). In sisterMAG N°7 we even had an exclusive cover design, illustrated by Elisabeth Weber (@ellijot) for you to download for free. Click below to see the video tutorial.
Our lovely intern Tina Bergs in my kitchen, preparing the tea bags for our #sisterMAGXMAS issue. It was her idea to make handmade tea and we are enjoying her creations to this day. It was a cozy Sunday afternoon in November when we were crafting DIY proje
One of my favourite food pictures of this year: a cocktail from the Italy special by Claudia Gödke in #sisterMAG7.
I just had to include this image of our mom at the COP moving in party. Not only is she wearing my favourite yellow dress, but I just love that she is holding a buttered bread and a bottle of beer *hehe*.
Trip to Munich to get some inspiration for sisterMAG. While being there I also met the great people behind German interior design platform SoLebIch.de, who were then featured in sisterMAG.
2013 is also the year that we began working with makeup and hair stylist Lena Schleweis. In the meantime she became an important part of the sisterMAG team and a good friend if I may say so! Here you see her with Jana during the cover shoot for #sisterMAG
I especially loved the (few) moments when the whole team celebrated what we have achieved. Here I am with Ashley at Bonbon Bar in the summer after we successfully published #sisterMAG8.
An old tag that we found when putting up the old closet from our grandmother in the COP office.
