Happinez Magazine is produced in the Netherlands and translated into several languages before zooming off around the world. It’s dedicated to yoga, spirituality and inner happiness, so there are plenty of articles that will feed your spirit and give you plenty to think about. I couldn’t resist posting this picture of my magazine sitting next to my Filofax. The serendipity of the colours together just … Continue reading Magazine Monday: Happinez Issue 21
Magazines are a great way to check off the progress of time. As the year passes, it can be marked by the changes in covers. From Easter’s eggs and May’s blossom to summer, with heady scented blooms and the inevitable blue and white seaside edition. August’s CH&I isn’t a dedicated sea special, but does have a seaside aesthetic. The whole magazine has a free and … Continue reading Magazine Monday: Country Homes and Interiors August 2020.
Bluebell Woods and Treasure Hunts How is your world in Lockdown? Life gets very essential, doesn’t it? As in, it’s essential that I spend a lot of time on Twitter or Facebook communicating to family and friends as life whizzes by. I never realised how much we take simple things for granted, but actually when a good belly laugh can leave you wheezing and the … Continue reading Magazine Monday: The Simple Things April 2020 Kind
Oh, my word. Has there ever been anything as frankly bizarre as the last week in the UK? It really doesn’t matter who you are, it seems, the Coronavirus has you in its sights and the only thing between us and a mass pandemic that will cause mayhem in the Health Service and potentially decimate our pensioners is the simple act of STAYING HOME. Yes, … Continue reading Magazine Monday: In The Moment Issue 36: March 2020
happinez (the spelling and use of lower case is how they spell their own name) is a magazine dedicated to spirituality and bliss. I picked it up on a trip to an art gallery, where the red cover and content teasers intrigued me. So much of hygge ties in to a quasi-spiritual path, with the emphasis on nature, togetherness, finding your happy and enjoying life … Continue reading Magazine Monday: happinez issue 19 Love
A quiet Saturday was followed by an even quieter Sunday as I found myself holed up in bed. I’m still aching, and quite possibly will be in bed before the Nine O’Clock news tonight, but I’m grabbing ten minutes to do my Magazine monday post. I’m enjoying sharing the best bits from my favourite magazines here on a Monday: so much effort and time is … Continue reading Magazine Monday:The Simple Things February 2020 “Thrive”
There’s a fondness now for magazine pulishers putting out thicker, heavier versions of magazines, sometimes focused on one area of life, and calling it a ‘bookazine’. I suppose because it’s as cost-effective to produce as a magazine, but gives you more information on the subject, as a book would. I have, in the past, bought them on subjects as diverse as computer programming, crochet and … Continue reading Magazine Monday: Your Serenity (bookazine)
Some interiors magazines just have interiors… it’s about the paint colours, and the stockists, the latest trends and where you *must* get that latest chair…. I’m a long-term subscriber to Country Homes and Interiors. A few years ago, I pared my subscriptions down to the bone (to simplify my life and in an attempt to read more online) but this one I kept. It’s a … Continue reading Magazine Monday: Country Homes and Interiors Feb 2020
