which magazines are you adding back in?
Awhile back I wrote a post about which magazines I was giving up. Since that time a lot of magazines have folded all together. It's kind of sad. I've enjoyed receiving fewer magazines, but now I'm finding that I actually want to add some back into my life. I recently discovered/rediscovered Whole Living and I'm liking it very much. Lots of healthy recipes in there, workout suggestions to offer inspiration, and natural beauty tips. All the photography is lovely, which is what really draws me to a magazine in the first place. I haven't subscribed to this yet, but I want to. Right now my mother is passing her copies along to me.
I'm also feeling a renewed interest in Martha Stewart Living just lately. I purchased the January and February issues and there's quite a bit in there that caught my attention. The page above is an article on cooking various whole grain breakfast cereals. In the past this magazine has turned me off a little--everything seemed so high end and unattainable! But I think they are trying to ease back on that and present more down to earth topics and activities. I've also noticed them featuring more basic crafts. This month there's a feature on counted cross-stitch which was very simple and appealing.
Yesterday I received my winter issue of 3191 quarterly. Love! This is a very small magazine but very inspiring and artistic. I loved the article on winter hiking.
And my mom recently gave me a gift subscription to Real Simple. I have mixed feelings about that magazine (because it's not really about simplicity, is it?), but this month they had a great collection of essays written by various authors about their favorite ages they remember, which I enjoyed thoroughly.
How about you? Are you finding yourself wanting to add back in some magazines?
