Saturday mornings in my house are all about a balance between chores and relaxation. As soon as I get up I put on a load of washing and settle down with a stack of magazines and a mug of tea while I wait for the machine to finish it’s cycle. This indulgent escape into fantasy land is the perfect start to my weekend. Let’s be honest - while it’s nice to look at pretty pictures of expensive clothes, if all you read is the monthly glossies it’s a bit depressing when it registers that you can’t afford a thing in them.
I realised recently that I’ve fallen out of love with most mainstream magazines; it was a sad realisation as I’ve been an avid magazine-reader for 15-years-or-so. That’s not to say I believe blogs will be the death of print – I firmly believe the two can co-exist and the magazines I love, I really love (ELLE, Lula, Betty, Frankie, The Hunger, and Carrie and Lucy’s new venture, Wish).
LOVE is a magazine that’s been on my list for ages but this is the first issue I’ve actually bought. It’s mammoth - over 450 pages. I’m enjoying losing myself in it today. Do you still read magazines? Which ones do you like?
