Magazine.co.uk Gift Card Giveaway!

magazine stack blogOne of the most relaxing pastimes has to be flipping through a magazine; it requires total concentration and the absence of twenty other tabs inevitably opened at the top of the screen!  Over the past half year, Magazine.co.uk have helped me to find a balance between my love of the online world (says the blogger, oh what a surprise) and reading printed words - in my opinion, the two can live in harmony.  They each offer different perspectives and encourage different approaches to life - one of speed and the other less so.  Once you've tired of one pace, the other comes to the rescue!
magazine.co.uk subscription giveawayI've been loyally adding to my collection for many years now, meaning those shown in this post reveal just a fraction of my ever-growing stash!  I relate certain copies to particular moments in time; a trend-packed issue of Elle Magazine last Christmas as the snow fell on the other side of the train's window, or an issue of Elle Decoration for April's flight home from Edinburgh.  You may notice the recurring theme here - I tend to save them for long journeys, and usually with a packet of sweets at hand!  Yeah, from the very beginning there's something comforting about magazine subscriptions, when they land on your doorstep each fortnight/month like clockwork.  They offer escapism - which is pretty handy when the guy you happen to have sat next to on the train is fidgeting for two hours straight...

Okay!  Getting to the good news - I've teamed up with Magazine.co.uk to offer one reader of A Glass Of Ice the chance to win a £30 gift card to spend on their website!  Whether you keep it for yourself, or surprise someone with it as a present (the gift that keeps on giving!), there are hundreds of magazine subscriptions to choose from ranging from categories such as Food & Drink to Fashion & Beauty, as well as suggestions for both women and men.

Just a few of the 100s of subscriptions the winner could choose from...

Vogue | Country Living | Stuff | Elle | Women's Health | GQ | Delicious

  2. What an awesome giveaway ! Of course I don't live in the UK, but if I did I would jump at the chance <3 Magazines are amazing, there is something so different about reading actual paper, that is why I always buy real books as well instead of ebooks... they are just so much better !

  4. I do the same with magazines! I love reading magazines as well, with each issue marking a point in my life. I have a ton from over the years, but I've slowly ran out of space to store them. I can't bear to throw em away because I get sentimental like that hahaha
    I think I just missed the giveaway :(

  7. The great thing about the printed word is that it doesn't need charging. Nothing worse than starting a long journey, cracking out your ereader and realising it's dead! :(

  8. That is good to keep balancing between the real and online spheres. I still remember when I first bought Seventeen Magazine, I thought it was so expensive because I was like 10 something lol However, I still think that the printed version is classic!

  16. Cool giveaway for UK readers. Even though I prefer magazines over the years i stopped buying them once I realized you could get most of the same content for free online. I do occasionally buy some of my favorites though.

  22. I totally agree. The two can walk hand in hand. I both love my online reading (that comes mostly in form of blogs but I read an ebook from time to time) and my print reading (magazines, books and graphic novels).

    Good luck to everyone partipating in this giveway. I don't usually buy fashion magazines, but I always read them when they happen to be at hand in some cafe or library. It is a nice feeling to hold 'fashion' in our hands.

  23. Such a wonderful giveaway Gabrielle, I used to collect Vogue magazines, and read them at my leisure also. I love how you mentioned about escapism...I always find myself escaping when I read a fashion magazine! :)

  26. I can't remember when I last bought a magazine. I used to buy Vogue and Elle and I had piles and piles of them. Maybe I will purchase more issues when I'm travelling next.
