Ahhh magazines. I loves them. Magazines play an important part of my life, being a journo and all. I always loved it when my mum came home from the weekly shop with the new Radio Times, I just loved the idea of a new magazine no matter what it was. I loved Smash Hits, Sugar, Bliss and a magazine called Looks as a teen. Then I progressed onto Elle and latterly Vogue. Since I trained as a journalist I'll pretty much read anything I can get my hands on. It's an addiction, and an expensive one at that. You know all about my love for Country Living by now, but here is a little run down of what is currently gracing my coffee table.
Vogue, of course. I don't buy many fashion magazines any more. This is the December Vogue- lovely design, photography, everything. The December issue is one I always look forward to. It's pure fantasy and I love to indulge my imagination. I also subscribe to Elle but barely get to read it much these days. I get the ASOS magazine through, too, which is a nice little read. Tomorrow my lovely friend Portia is taking me to a place in London called RD Franks, a fashion bookshop that sells magazines from all over the world. Squueeeeee! To say I'm excited is an understatement.
This magazine is a new discovery for me, and this is the new issue. I love it- it's fresh, informative and the shoots are lovely. This is from the Thrifty Chic spread. Scrumptious! I love the colours, the crochet flower cushion and the Cath Kidston Bedding.
This page is LOVELY. Now I need to buy some oilcloth to line the shelves of my old 1950's larder cabinet.
I can't wait to have a dining table with coloured chairs too.
Aaah some food porn. Incredibly good value and beautifully put together magazines. The recipes in Sainsbury's magazine are so reliable and the Waitrose mag has some lovely photography and great features.
And lastly, Country Homes & Interiors. The shoots are beautifully styled. I love this page as yesterday when I was taking the pictures I was drinking tea from my Penguin classics mug (Wuthering Heights) and wearing a tea dress and cosy socks and cardi!
