There is nothing better on a lazy Summer Sunday afternoon than heading into the garden or to the local park, picnic blanket in hand with a thirst quenching drink and a couple of your favourite magazines.
I love reading magazines and have, over the years, spent a small fortune on glossy titles. I just love flicking through the pages, picking up tips and lusting after outfits spotted on celebs and I have loved gathering ideas and inspiration from the stories, articles and photographs. I was once known to rip out pages of magazines and pin the baking recipes on our kitchen noticeboard for a rainy day.
I have teamed up with magazine.co.uk as part of their blogger network to share with you three of the magazines that both my husband and I love to read. Excitingly, the three magazines we have chosen will be landing on our doormat each month and I’ll be sharing why we love them and why they keep us glued to the pages every month. The magazines I have chosen include House Beautiful, Woman and Home and Stuff.
I’ve always been a fan of House Beautiful and a couple of years ago, bought my Mother-in-law a subscription for Christmas which she loved. Luckily for me, she handed down the magazine when she was finished with it so the love for home inspiration and interiors spread through the family.
Woman and Home is a fairly new magazine for me to read. I’m of that age now where I’m becoming increasingly house proud and want to get the best out of it. I love the mix of recipes, news and entertain gossip and fashion trends with travel features and hair and beauty ideas thrown in too.
Stuff magazine is one of my husband’s favourites. He loves to spend half an hour escaping into the world of technology and gadgetry. As an ICT teacher, reading Stuff is right up his street and I’ll be handing over to him to share his favourites from the magazine.
A magazine subscription is an excellent gift for friends and family and it’s the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. For more information, reviews and competitions head on over to The Hub, the blog for magazine.co.uk.
