It’s magazine day! Inside Out August 2014

I love sitting down to read Inside Out. It is beyond awesome that the mag is now a monthly. We get to enjoy more home/interior/decorating goodness! Yay!

One thing you can always be assured of is the brilliant styling that goes into each feature/tte (I’ve chosen a few of my favourites below). I find that I can read Inside Out two or three times and still find new and interesting things that I might of missed on previous flicks through.

Are you a fan too?

Pretty, pretty magazines

It will come as no surprise that I’m a magazine addict. The more obscure the magazine the more I want it.

I tend to gravitate between fashion, literary and home mags. I find that glossies help me to come up with ideas when I’m writing ad copy because the ads in these magazines use few words. Fewer words means every single one is included for a reason. It’s cool to dissect the ads to see how they are crafted (perhaps that’s just a writer thing?).

Over the last few weeks I have been cataloguing my magazine collection into Evernote. I am in love with Evernote. If I have an idea for an article I can just search through my collection to see if anyone has written about it before. Genius stuff that will save me so much time!

I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite magazine covers from my current catalogue. Do you have a favourite magazine? Perhaps we can do a swap!
