I buy magazines once a week, I don' think I could live without them! I buy U Magazine every second week when a new issue comes out, the following week I buy Stellar, then Glamour and finally Cosmopolitan. I love how you have your gossip, beauty, fashion and food all in one magazine. I love that if you see something you love, like a make up look, you can just tear out the page and keep it in a folder to use later.
I love keeping a folder of things I have pulled out of these magazines. I pull out all the fashion pages so I can see what styles are trending. This takes up a lot of the folder and I have to clean it out after a while as there is not room left in it. I am also a huge fan of the hair and make up tutorials that U Magazine have in all their issues. I love pulling these out and using them to play about with my make up looks for nights out. I have to say for €1.70 this is a well worth while magazine. When I am traveling I love to buy magazines to read at the airport and I love how all the major magazine companies are now taking out travel size copies of each edition. It was always a pain to try and fit a full A4 sized magazine into your bag as you were boarding the plane.
I love reading blogs too (I am so sorry I could not fit everyone on here, these were just the first ones to pop up onto my bloglovin feed). There are so many amazing blogs out there and everyone has something different to say or write about. I can't tell you how many products I have purchased just because I have read a great review on them. I think if I had not started reading beauty blogs then my bank account would look a lot healthier than it does right now hahaha.
I think the blog that I love the most and read all the time is Justified By Jemo written by Claire. She is a good friend from college and she has unbelievable fashion sense and has helped with fashion styling for fashion shows for stores such as Brown Thomas, she has competed and won styling competitions, she writes a fashion segment for her local newspaper and has recently worked on styling Nathan Carlin Rosanio for a shoot. Defiantly give her a follow if you love fashion, she has done amazing for herself going from sitting on a psychology lecture with me and our friend to styling models for shoots and writing for a local newspaper, GO CLAIRE!!!!
Here are all the links to other blogs I read over and over!
Red Lips; Red Hair (couldn't leave a good buddy off my list!)
And many many more.....
To sum up:
- They are convenient
- You don't need an internet connection
- You can read them in the bath tub
- You don't have to waste ink printing out things you love
- They are personal
- You can read anything at the touch of a button
- You can see the views of a wide variety of people
- You can help drive a person with just a few words left in a comment box under their post.
This is an argument I am never going to be able to pick sides for, I like both. Which do you prefer? Let me know and maybe hit the join this site button up on the right of this page :)
