I’ll let you into a little secret. My guilty pleasure is magazines. I love nothing better than sitting down with a cuppa & a good magazine.
I buy my dose of magazines each week & also a few monthly ones. I love the glossy pages, the chat pages & the real life stories, I glance over the fashion pages wishing I had hundreds to splash on a new bag or shoes but magazine window shopping is so much cheaper! I enjoy the adverts trying to sell me everything except a new kitchen sink & then I turn to the star signs & the world could fall apart! I also buy the fiction magazines & have a good read of the short stories wishing that I had kicked my bad ass to sit & write the short story that I’ve had notes on for ages.
I always stick to the same magazines. Grazia is my favourite weekly; Glamour & Cosmo are my favourite monthlies. I subscribe to Glamour & still get excited when it drops through the letter box each month!
This month though I was a bit peeved as one shop got to sell that magazine with a freebie in it which was exclusive to them this meant that even subscribers didn’t get the gift :o( this is my other guilty pleasure associated with magazines…the freebies! I love them. Yes I’m one of those people who will buy a magazine just for the: body butters/shower gels/mascaras/nail polish/ hair products/flip flops/sarongs & even books. I just love a good freebie with a magazine!
I will happily browse the shelves looking for that perfect read yet I normally end up reading the whole magazine in one sitting & find myself wishing that I had savoured each glossy page a little longer as then I wouldn’t I have to wait the whole month or week for the next glossy dose of magazine guilty pleasures.
