And so it begins…. My treat for today was a new magazine and a watch of Walking On Sunshine. How have I missed that one before? I have to say, my heart simultaneously skipped and dropped at the sight of a Christmas magazine on the stand. I know come 15th September we’re into double figures… but I also know that Christmas is as far away … Continue reading A New Magazine That Really Suits Me… And Sarah Got Some, too: September Small Things Day 4
It’s the morning after the night before. Italy won the Euro2020 competition (I’m happy for Italy, of course I am. After failing to qualify for the last World Cup, coming back to win the next tournament shows a determination to succeed and a willingness to work for it) but England did so well to make it to the final. We had a young team, and … Continue reading This Isn’t The Summer I was Looking For.
It’s That Time of Year, when magazines enter my house thick and fast. They’re such a reasonable way to treat yourself, usually only £5 to buy and with a pot of tea or a milky coffee and a quiet corner can add up to a few minutes of self-care, inspiration and reflection (as in reading an article and thinking “I wouldn’t do that, if I … Continue reading Magazine Monday: Woman and Home December 2020
I swapped my weekend days this weekend, so I sat having my Magazine Moment, usually every Sunday morning, on Saturday. It’s mid-October, which as anyone will tell you is the start of getting ready for Christmas. Yes, it is really. From now on I buy a small thing every week to put away for meals over Christmas, really start buying gifts and storing them (different … Continue reading Magazine Monday: A Trio of Christmas Inspiration.
I have subscribed to both these magazines for decades now, since early motherhood at least. So this week when I tried to decide which one I wanted to feature, mindful of the fact that it’s nearly time for the Christmas editions to hit the shops and I really want to share my favourite hygge pages from all of them, it struck me that I didn’t … Continue reading Magazine Monday: Country Giants go Head to Head.
Sunday morning is my magazine time. Each week I slip out of bed, leaving my husband snuffling softly rather like a badger on the loose, and creep to the living room with a large mug of tea and a magazine from my TBR pile. It’s a little ritual of mine. I switch on a mindful sea film on Youtube (usually a chilly Cornish beach, boring … Continue reading Magazine Monday: Psychologies October 2020
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.
