Here are this weeks blanks, they are all about magazines. If you would like to join in and fill in the blanks too head on over to Laurens blog the little things we do.
If I could only read one magazine publication for the rest of eternity, I would choose... Real Life Magazine. It is an Australian home and garden publication and I absolutely love it. My sister in law got me a years subscription for me for my last birthday and I had it delivered to my front door. Every month I waited early for my magazine to come and I would make myself a cup of tea and sit down and read it cover to cover getting great ideas on how to decorate my home. My birthday is coming up soon so hopefully somebody will get me another subscription (hint hint!)
If I were to run my own magazine it would be all about how to be green and buy second hand. It would have thrift store and vintage store reviews, info on the best places to shop, tips on how to bring second hand furniture and second hand clothes back to life, how to incorporate vintage items in with you modern items. My list is endless.
I buy my magazines (at the grocery check stand or via subscription) as I said before my lovely sister in law gave me a subscription for my birthday but before that I would pick my magazines up when I was doing my grocery shopping. My friends and I would buy a magazine each and then we would do a magazine swap with each other so that we could save money.
I prefer my magazines (in print or online) in print. We have one laptop and usually I have to fight my hubby to use it so I like to have a hard copy that I can pull out and read anytime. I also like to pull pages out of my magazines and cut articles I like out and add them into my inspiration journal.
The number of magazines I buy each month is a big fat ZERO. Since I have been away I have not read any magazines, there is not enough money in the budget for them. If I was at home I would buy one a month and usually I would flick through the magazine first and make sure there were things in there that I was interested in before buying it.
My favorite magazine genre is (lifestyle, gossip, home, etc...) would be home and then fashion a close second.
The magazines I read regularly are Real Living, Better Homes and Gardens, Home Beautiful and In Style
After answering all those questions I really feel like going out and getting myself a magazine, or two or three!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend xoxo
