Inspiration PART 2

I don’t get around to reading them all the time for a few reasons (namely I’m busy… but also because I don’t have subscriptions at school haha).
Soccer Mom keeps STACKS of magazines for me to read while I’m home on breaks.  I have a good system when reading magazines… I take exactly 45 minutes to go through a magazine.  If I get through it earlier, I go back through until I hit a total of 45 minutes.
Ads are most definitely not overlooked.  They’re quite important actually.  I tear out ones that I really absolutely do NOT want to forget about, but I try to just take mental pictures and notes to come back to when I’m in a rut.
I love Glamour magazine.  I never used to read it, but now it’s definitely my favorite.  The ads are always fantastic and the articles are great too.  And obviously, the fashion is fun fun fun!
I try to just soak up each page.
I can’t go through a magazine without wanting to completely revamp my wardrobe.
What advertisement have I recently pulled out?
The White House Black Market ad with the GIANT pink bow.
More magazines that give me the best inspiration for writing blog posts: Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living, Lucky, Teen Vogue.
Do you find inspiration from magazines?

Southern Living, Coastal Living, Shape, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, British Gossip Magazines, Women's Health, Conservationist Magazines, and when I travel I love to get the local magazines. Be it in Chicago, Boston, Paris, or Amsterdam. The first time I was in France, I bought a French Vogue and it was my favorite keepsake and inspiration to collect more. Fun post!

i like your idea about 45 minutes for a magazine. I always end up with a huge pile and never face the pile because i think about how much time it will take to go through them all.

I love the Wall Street Journal Magazine…great ads!

I love Glamour, too! My parents starting subscribing because we had extra frequent flier miles and now I'm obsessed. I'm with you about it taking 45 minutes; I'm notoriously thorough in reading my magazines.
