I still read gossip mags or Look for high street fashion – plus I love their make up shots however – now i know a lot more about make up I wonder what planet the majority of the beauty writers are on – highlighting their amazing products, which I’ve tried and found to be awful! Plus their dodgy advice like nobody wear shimmer eyeshadow over 25, don’t wear more than 2 colours on your eye or you look like a crazy person e.t.c

I love reading Vogue Italia, because – imho – it’s one of the best fashion magazines out there. When I can, I also buy i-D, which is a British fashion magazine. Since I’m very keen on fashion photography, I have to admit Internet is a blessing (I can have access to foreign magazines), but the sensation of flipping through a REAL magazine is uncomparable.

I definitely still read print magazines. There’s something in the tactile experience of reading a magazine cover to cover that can’t be replaced.

I still hold subscriptions to two magazines that I’ve read for years. I like to find things to inspire me to write about things on my own blog. But I have realized that they’ve become a lot thinner and more full of ads which is a huge turn off for me. The subscriptions are so cheap that at less than $20 to get my monthly mail, it’s fine by me!

I read websites & blogs , but I also need my weekly dose of magazines. I couldn’t live without Elle or Glamour … just could”t !

A magazine is a great read for when you’re waiting on a train , when you’re between classes at university or when you simply want to lay in the garden with a bowl full of apple parts and a nice magazine to look through.

not so much anymore, I like reading teenvogue though, cause they usually have good clothes/makeup ideas in them that are directed more to young girls

It seems that I’m not reading magazines nearly as much any more, especially since it seem that by the time I get my magazines (they’re submitted months ahead) I’ve already read the information on-line. Do you remember the time when we had to wait for the magazines to find out what went down at fashion week? Now we can get live footage right from the shows!

I adore magazines and read tons of them 🙂 I have several subscriptions to all kinds of different types – crafting, sewing, fashion, feminist, decorating!! There is nothing like the feeling of leafing though a brand new magazine that just arrived in the mail……love it 🙂 I will never ever replace my magazines with the internet.

I love magazines! I love when they are brand new and glossy and have articles in it I’m dying to read! I subscribe to Allure, Glamour, People Stylewatch, US weekly and Shape, I also buy In style, Self, Marie Claire, Psychologies, Harpers Bazaar and Cosmo if they have an intriguing cover! Yeah some of the gossip can be a tad outdated but nothing beats a big heavy fashion issue full of current beauty trends and informative articles–it definitely gives you something blogs don’t–the ability to read it anywhere and everywhere and especially on your couch! I like to flip through and look through the pictures first, then I go back later and read the articles when I want to focus. Its like a relaxation ritual for me!

I’ve slowly begin phasing out of print magazines. I still have subscriptions to Allure and Makeup Artist Magazine, and I plan on keeping them for a while. I used to receive Cosmo, Self, and People, as well, but now find most of that type of content online.
