I kinda have a bit of a magazine addiction. So I’m starting a new series here – A Mag Education aka What I Learnt from the Magazines I Bought This Month. Sound good? Lets go.
First up – who won the battle of the freebies? We were given a generous offering from Marie Claire with a L’Occitane hand cream (I got the violet one which smells divine) but it has to go to Instyle for its trio of Ren’s skin care minis.
Nail It! Sept/Oct 2013A special guest from the States! Nail It busted some nail related myths including the whole “you need to let your nails breathe” one. Nope! Nail polish every day it is. Nail It also taught me that I will never have the patience to paint my nails with oil paint, no matter how cute that textured tartan look is.
Look October 21st 2013 Speaking of tartan, Look taught me that ‘funnel necks’ are officially a thing and that I need this beauty from Closet. Tartan and Funnels – double trending done!
“Would you try Hollywood’s Corset Diet?” Hell no! I’d like my organs to stay where they are, ta very much.
Company November 2013 Turns out Company are “well impressed” with little old me! Aww.
Glamour November 2013Olivia Wilde is pure awesomesauce. I loved her The Dos & Don’ts of Turning 30 feature. “I’d rather be a good person who makes people happy than a dick who wins a nobel by 32.” Slightly implying that Einstein was a dick, but hey, it was funny.
Cosmopolitan November 2013 I am a sucker for a heavy-handed film reference or two. I loved the styling of this photo shoot.
Shortish post this month – testing the waters here. I’ll have a bumper edition next month including the first issue of Blogosphere magazine! Let me know what you think of this feature.
