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, 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! 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...
