Don't bother counting them, I've already done that for you!
I revealed to you awhile back that I have a thing for magazines. My family knows this very well. But I don't think the rest of you appreciate the extent of my obsession. You soon will...
The photo above (22 magazines in case you're counting) represents my magazine consumption over a two-week period. Yes, the numbers are correct, 22 magazines in 14 days. And this isn't abnormal behaviour for me. And a few of the regulars are missing from the stack...
I blame it on being a graphic designer and a visual person. That sounds reasonable doesn't it?
And in case you're interested, here's the stash...
For the creative in me there's:
• Marie Claire Idees: I found it again, just where Justine said it would be!
• Sew Stylish: a new one for me, but it has some great jacket patterns and sewing tips
• Interweave Knits: for inspiration
• Vogue Knitting: ditto
• Blueprint: I like its design pedigree
• Adorn: just to see what's going on
• Crochet Today: cause i just might crochet today.
For the frustrated architect/interiordesigner in me:
• Australian Country Style: lovely photos!
• Australian House and Garden: they have been featuring quite a few designer profiles lately
• Inside Out: I've been a subscriber from day one, very good design focus
And not in the pile but regularly read:
• Home Beautiful
• Real Living
• Living etc
For the I-want-to-get -myself-sorted woman in me there's:
• Oprah: its really quite a good mag
• Real Simple: a bit of everything and great layout
• More: smart talk for smart women, aimed at the over 40 crowd, and you know I'm 40 now!
For the woman who's attempting to be slightly fashionable there's:
• Australian Harper's Bazaar: a girl can dream can't she?
• Australian Vogue: what can I say?
• Australian In Style: so I know if green is "in" this season.
• Better Homes and Gardens: its a habit
• Australian Women's Weekly: its a tradition
• Notebook: an Australian version of Real Simple and because I got my Mum a subscription and I like it that we both read it. And so does my sister Rachel.
For the woman who thinks Nicole Kidman is gorgeous there's:
• Vanity Fair: I always buy it, but she's on the cover of the October issue, a bonus.
And for the English-woman I hope to become one day:
• British Country Living: makes me feel like I'm living there right now and always has artist profiles
• She: such a bargain at A$2.99
• Eve: usually a good read
• Easy Living: possibly my favourite of this bunch
And I sometimes buy Red, depends what's on the cover.
And you know the crazy thing? Aunty Shabby, my youngest sister who loves in Melbourne too, also buys at least 10 of these as well!
PS: did you know classification comes naturally to INTJs? We can't help ourselves.
