Brought to you by MagShop
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:
- Australian Women’s Weekly
- Women’s Fitness
- 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!
