Last week I was a woman on a mission. Having left all my favorite fashion magazines behind in Australia, I decided it was time to start a few subscriptions. So I headed to Magazines.com and picked out Elle.
Then I decided that I may as well get Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, seeing as they are so cheap (I mean, seriously, $8 for a year of Bazaar?). I already get Nylon and my guilty pleasure, Teen Vogue (my boyfriend bought me this for my birthday – he was so embarassed to be signing up for Teen Vogue).
Then, as I am about to checkout, they of course offer up a bunch of suggestions. Should I get Glamour? Should I get Cosmopolitan? I am a total sucker for these last-minute purchases so I added Cosmopolitan. Total trash but what the hell, right?
The next day we were over at a friend’s house and there was a Rolling Stone on the counter. Within 24 hours a subscription to this had been purchased. Finally today I received my awards balance for my debit card and it is just enough points to get either a subscription to Marie Claire or a $5 Starbucks voucher. I don’t really read Marie Claire normally but I guess I’m a magazine junkie because that’s what I got.
I don’t think I’ll be getting any of the magazines until September or October but I am already anticipating days of lying on the couch, reading magazines and zoning out.
What magazines do you subcribe to?
