Christmas Every Week with Magazine.co.uk

41 comments
Grab a cuppa, put your feet up and flick through a magazine. Is there a nicer way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon? I've loved magazines since I was a teenager and I probably always will. Back in the day, of course, they were pretty much the only way for a fashion and beauty addict like myself to get some inspiration, but even after discovering the wonderful world of blogs and YouTube, I still appreciate the glossies as much as I always did.

Grazia has always been one of my favourites.

For a start, it's weekly, which is great if you're impatient like me. Receiving a weekly magazine on subscription is such a treat - it's like a mini Christmas every week! My copy of Grazia arrives on a Tuesday and I usually save it for the weekend. Unless I'm going on a train journey during the week, in which case it makes the perfect travel companion, along with a bag of peanut M&Ms wheatgrass juice.

For me, the best part of any magazine is the fashion and styling tips, and Grazia has plenty of that going on. I love the Fashion Charts section at the beginning of each issue, and always find at least one piece to drool over. In this issue, it's the black dress at number 11. Imagine how gorgeous that would look at a Christmas party, maybe with some strappy silver sandals.

Or how about this velvet one in the bottom right-hand corner? I love this too and think it would look amazing with berry lips and nails. It's from Oasis, which isn't a shop I often visit, so thanks to Grazia I now have a reason to pop in! I'm also eyeing up that embellished clutch...

Fashion might be my first love, but beauty comes a close second, and Grazia's beauty section definitely doesn't disappoint. In fact, I often find magazines more "manageable" than the blogosphere when it comes to getting my head around the endless stream of new products that always seem to be coming out. I don't think anything can beat a good, honest blogger review, but a lot of the time, magazines help me narrow down what I want to look out for. Does anyone else feel this way? I'd love to know!

And I do like a little bit of celeb gossip too, I'm not going to lie! (Side note - how amazing does Taylor Swift look here?!)

There are always a few recipes too, to inspire your inner domestic goddess. In my perfect world, I'd save these, add them to my repertoire, and cook them up during the week. (In the real world, my husband cooks dinner, which actually isn't a bad arrangement, now I come to think about it.)

Finally, there's a little bit of home inspo, and the horoscopes, which I must confess, I do enjoy. So long as it's good news, of course. ;-)

I've been receiving Grazia from Magazine.co.uk as one of their official bloggers, and I'll be posting some articles to their blog in the near future. The first one will probably be a make-up look inspired by a feature in the beauty section, so make sure you pop over there to read it! In the meantime, if you're in the market for a new magazine subscription or feel like gifting one to somebody for Christmas (brilliant gift idea by the way!) then do check out Magazine.co.uk. It's super easy to subscribe and they have pretty much every magazine under the sun. If Grazia takes your fancy, now is the perfect time to go for it, as Magazine.co.uk are currently offering a free Orla Kiely travel pouch worth £49 with every subscription.

Do you read magazines? Which is your favourite?

  1. I am only subscribed to one magazine, Brigitte. My mother was for as long as I can remember, and when I moved out, I got my own. It is every other week, but to be honest it takes me the two weeks to find me to actually read it, so that is fine for me.

    1. Yes, sometimes I'm not sure how I find the time to read one every week, but somehow I manage it! Could explain why the ironing never gets done I suppose! x

  5. I haven't brought a magazine in ages! I used to get Elle and Glamour but I now I read things online. Although I prefer flipping through an actual magazine when I'm traveling :)

    P.S I love your cup and saucer!

    1. I agree about the traveling thing - much prefer a physical magazine to my Kindle in that setting. We got the cups and saucers for a wedding present and I love them to bits! x

  11. I've always liked the thought of magazine subscriptions but have never taken the plunge to subscribe to one just because we don't get them here. I can't say Grazia is a magazine I've heard of, but they definitely sound like an interesting one.

  25. I'm going to admit this shamelessly - if I do ever buy magazines, it's only for the freebies! If I see a good freebie than I'm getting it. A good read is a nice bonus though :P <3
