slowing down with many a good magazine...

Now, you know I already love Magazines, especially anything leaning towards different or vintage.
Thanks to a friend of mine, I am tempted to become obsessed!
 She not only introduced me to Kinfolk properly, but in our swap process I feel as though there is a clutter of magazines flying about in my head.
In a good way.

Absolutely amazing photography; Articles beautifully written; Creative in a soothing way; Recipes relating to gathering together, entertaining, for a simply lovely experience. Loved this in every way.
This is not the issue I have read although I am currently trying to get my hands on it. If the copy I have is anything to go by - the first issue, so I'm assuming it is only going to get better!- then bring on the baked Camembert, balcony gardens, apple picking, toffee apple crumble, seed swap (love it!), photos of fading signs on buildings, and loads of loveliness!
I didn't get to have a proper read of this one, but from viewing it briefly again here, I find it to be a bit like Frankie Magazine in feel and design, but WAY more creative. It also seems slightly less uni-student, and slightly more directed at inspiring you to get creating! It is also my friends favourite so far I believe, and she has very good taste.
If you are wanting to be kept intrigued and up to date with cool cute new things, I recommend signing up for Frankie Magazines newsletter. The magazine features well, whatever! It changes constantly, with a very uni-student vibe (highly opinionated writers are just trying to figure it out - but in a very cool way) introduces you to the lives of creative people and new ideas.
A magazine full of interesting articles, primarily focused on being kind to the environment and our bodies. Peppermint is cute and provides you with little crafty projects and ideas to encourage teas and vintage shopping. Well, at least that's what I got out of it!
 Open a google tab right now, and do an image search on Anthology Magazine. Do it. and just browse. So pretty. Home goodness at it's best. I think I would LOVE this magazine. A mix of Country Style and Real Living Magazines - what else could a gal like me want!?
I haven't read this one, but it claims to be about creative people, not things you can buy or spend money on. Just have a look see. I like the look of it but have yet to pick up a copy and have a flick through. However, it caught my eye and seemed worth sharing. 
More to come...
going crazy for pretty mags.

These look wonderful! I never seem to find time to read magazines anymore. It's really sad!

Really good post hun! Thanks for adding all those links. Think I'll go buy myself a copy of The Simple Things.

Just when I was going to say "I'll have an Anthology subscription please" I found out they only subscribe to US, Canada, and UK residents! Sad face.
