Daydreams and Magazines

As I mentioned on my Instagram, yesterday I got caught in torrential rain that saw me right in the middle of a frenzied thunder-and-lightning combo.  It's safe to say any effort that went into my appearance that day was obliterated in the space of a few minutes.  Did I mind?  Not one bit!  Drizzled rain is frustrating, but there's something refreshing about looking as though you've been dunked in a bath tub.  There's nothing you can do about it so you may as well embrace it!  The photos shown in this post, however, were not taken on that day (clearly) and were instead taken at the weekend - before England well and truly waved goodbye to summer.  They were taken on a day when the weather permitted me to sit at the end of my garden and work my way through the first issue of the Elle Magazine subscription c/o kindly arranged for me by Magazine.co.uk.
   

I'm shameless when it comes to magazines, I want to read them ALL and not just so I can display and admire them in my magazine-holders afterwards - anyone else do that?  So, it's with great pleasure I can say you'll be hearing a fair amount from me about the well-known website Magazine.co.uk over upcoming months thanks to my collaboration with them.  I just love magazines; I love the articles, suggestions, imagery and even the glossy advertisements!  Just like many of my favourite blogs, magazines bring together the 'cream of the crop' and there's no greater example of that than Elle Magazine.  When very generously asked which annual magazine subscriptions I'd like to read and write about over on The Hub (Magazine.co.uk's destination for an eclectic mix of magazine reviews), I selected Elle Magazine, Elle Decor and Harpers Bazaar.  Seriously, I don't care if the rain is pouring down on me.  I love each of these magazines so much that I'm prepared to brazenly read them cover-to-cover in the pouring rain at the end of my garden just to express my love for them (though please don't ask me to).



























Crop Top and Shorts - (Limited Edition) Luxemme Alayna Floral Two-Piece c/o

Gold Bangle - Vintage

Metallic Rings - Topshop

Sunglasses - Vera Wang


I'm hugely looking forward to immersing myself in the inspirational pages of Elle Decor, as although I rarely mention it on A Glass Of Ice, I adore reading/brainstorming interior design features/trends and uh, forever crossing my fingers for the word 'metallic' to be brought up for discussion because nearly every home accessory I own is exactly that.  The quantity of content by Elle Decor that encourages daydreams is unreal, their Twitter alone is the biggest distraction known to mankind.    

Both Elle Magazine and Harpers Bazaar have been my favourite magazines to read for nearly three years now.  They combine aspirational features with entirely relatable topics, making them the perfect glossy reads for exciting journeys/trips and lazy Sunday mornings in bed alike.  What I love most about each publication is how they interview/mention well-known figures and yet show just as much love for the up-and-coming and emerging talents/brands, so you know who to watch.  If you ask me, they strike the perfect balance.


Needless to say, I'm thrilled to be working with Magazine.co.uk, I'm well and truly ready to be inspired!  Be sure to keep up with my upcoming three articles on The Hub by Magazine.co.uk - my first one will be discussing the A/W 2015/16 trend of blouses (better yet if you've already read Elle Magazine's original blouses trend alert in their September issue).  In the meantime, do take a look at the magazines available (all with incredible discounts that would make fabulous gifts) and let me know which subscriptions you have your eye on!  Right, time to head outside in my Luxemme two-piece for some intense magazine-reading, now where did I put my umbrella..          

With love,

Gabrielle x

  5. I really need to start buying magazines again, I stopped reading them years ago because the ridiculous amounts of advertisements, it's shameless to say the least. Maybe that has changed now?

    1. Oh no, there's still an extraordinary amount of advertisements in magazines, but it entirely depends on whether you enjoy seeing them or not. Elle's advertisements are certainly very glossy in comparison to others.

  6. Like Shireen I stopped buying magazines because they seem too pricy considering that more than half pages were just commercials, but perhaps I just haven't been reading the right ones? There is pleasure in having a magazine in one's hands that is akin to that of holding a book, and as a book lover I can't deny that I enjoy that feeling.

    You look absolutely gorgeous in that floral two piece set! I love this trend of matching tops and shorts. It seems to practical and you can always mix match them once you grew tired of a certain set. Wonderful sunny photos:) and I'm glad you managed to see the good side in the rain that arrived...like reading a nice magazine.

    Congrats on your collaboration dear! Enjoy your reading time<3

    1. I think it all comes down to whether or not you enjoy advertisements and which types belong to which magazines (eg Elle and Harpers Bazaar feature predominantly high end glossy ones). Thank you so much for your kind words Ivana, I also love that it widens the field of opportunity with regard to styling :) Have a lovely week!

  12. I don't read magazines, at all. Am I missing out? I've flipped through them occasionally (Atlas is an absolute eye candy) but don't have a subscription to a magazine where I can get constant source of inspiration. I've heard many things about Elle, and now with your enthusiastic review, I think I may have to start getting into actually reading it now!

    1. I'm yet to read any Italian issues of Elle, though I can imagine how brilliant they'd be - I should have picked up a copy when I was in Rome! That's a very good point, they certainly do stand firmly behind women ('strong women boost other women'). Thanks Arely, your support is heartwarming :)

    2. Hi Gabrielle, I crave for those thick glossy Italian Elle and Marie Clarie fashion magazines,I love their sweet scented glossy perfumed pages and those giant September issue's resting in my lap as I turn over those gorgeous soft fashion pages sending out their new publication aroma excites me, I especially love snuggling in close absorbing their beauty.

  81. Not a big fan of Elle tbh (toomuch advertising and little text if you ask me) but I love your two piece combination. Very summery and classy. You look amazing as always xxx

    1. I agree there are a LOT of adverts in Elle Magazine, though thankfully I rather like them.. if you don't however, I can see how irritating it could be :)
