Danimezza Mag Shop Magazine Subscription Christmas Competition Giveaway Plus Size Fashion Blogger Outfit Swimwear Cosmopolitan Vogue In Style-1

I’ve been a magazine junkie since my teens and despite the decline in print publishing numbers, I know I’ve been doing my bit to keep them in business.  Every year around Christmas time I renew all my subscriptions, at the moment I have three:

  • Real Living
  • Shop Til You Drop
  • Hapers Bazaar

These are a few other titles I’m considering subscribing to next year:

  • Vogue
  • Elle
  • Australian Women’s Weekly
  • Women’s Fitness
  • InStyle
  • Marie Claire

… hint hint Santa!

I find they’re the best and easiest gifts for family and friends to give me at Christmas because let’s face it, I’m a bit fussy. Ok, maybe I’m a little bit more pedantic than that but I know what I like, I like glossies.

Usually subscriptions are under $100, I get treated all year long as they hit my letterbox each month and best of all it saves me a lot of money on something I’d be shelling out for anyway. Win-win for everyone involved.

This year I plan to subscribe to a few additional titles because as the years go by more and more plus size models are being featured and more plus size editorials are being published and I like to keep them on a special shelf in my studio when they are.

Each photo and every article is a baby step in the right direction towards a better representation of the average Australian woman in today’s media. I like to think I’m doing my bit online and maybe one day my words and pictures will regularly be in print too… a girl can dream.

When my glossies arrive I take it as a signal that I need to take a breather. I just find them so inspirational. I usually run a bath and escape into the glamour, the smell of the paper, creatively window-shopping in my mind.

Today I decided that the local pool and sunshine was too good to pass up so I set up camp outside and it was glorious. I’ll admit I spent the whole time imagining I was in Hawaii, wouldn’t it be amazing to win!

    Sadly, i find I don’t find much to interest me in most print magazines. They seem to take me only 30 minutes to read.

    My all time favourite print magazine was ‘The Notebook’ it was simply perfect as far as I was concerned. Beautiful floral display on the cover, Sectioned tabs for all the content, Food sections with a themed dinner party menu, Affordable Beauty, Inspirational stories. I looked forward to reading it each month and it would actually take me a few days to finish as it was so full of content.

    Of course, it ceased production. I have never found another magazine to replace it. I have almost every edition that was printed, and I still like to pull one out and look at it every now and then.

    I’m obsessed with food magazines. I buy at least 5 every month, bookmark the recipes I want to make, and slowly make my way through them. I would totally love a subscription to Feast magazine. It’s one of my favs!

    I wish to have mother and baby magazine as I am 15 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I am totally clueless and this would help me a lot. I already subscribe to a few others you mentioned.

    I’d choose Super Food Ideas, I love that they have allergy friendly, budget friendly recipes that are actually interesting to make and eat.

    Shop til you Drop – I love the new format and even when my budget is tight I can always find something I can wear in Shop – this isn’t always the case with other magazines!

    Marie Clare — I read it cover to cover, and even pour over the adverts. It has this special X-factor for me, it seems to resonate. It’s a good balance between beauty and fashion and interviews and editorial photographs.

    Women’s Fitness! I let my subscription lapse because of lack of funds, but I’m seriously getting my life and fitness into gear again and I love that mag.

    I really love Cosmo! I’ve been reading it since I was a teenager, and I still pick one up if I know I’ll have a some spare time in the sun to read it :)

    InStyle for me please. I did have a subscription but since becoming a mum, things like that have been taken off the list in place of things for the kids.
    I’d love this little treat for myself. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I love my Women’s Fitness subscription! Such a refreshingly great magazine. I’m currently lusting after a Real Living subscription- being defence, we move frequently and have to make the most of what we are given, and it’s one of the few decorating mags I’ve seen the offers solutions for those of us in rentals!

    I would definitely subscribe to ‘Shop Till You Drop’ as its always packed with amazing things that I have never heard about and are affordable (and sometimes not) for everyone!

    Vogue would be my ultimate favorite, as I’m only a teenager and can’t afford any awesome magazines that give advice!
