hello, my name is lulu and i am addicted to magazines.

good morning friends! 'tis sunday, the day of rest and little buddy and i have already been on our walk (albeit a rather shorter one than usual). it is now time for coffee, bacon, and raspberries...oh! and magazines!
there are two very specific addictions that my mother and i share. bookstores and magazines. oh! those shiny pages of promise; the comfort of our little typefaced worlds.
magazines are for us, like a little monthly brainstorm of awesome ideas and new recipes. as you may (or may not remember) i am STILL grieving the loss of Domino magazine last march. of all the things to disintegrate in this economy why OH WHY did it have to be Domino? i lament this sad fact at least once a week. *sigh*
i hit up two bookstores yesterday just because. i went home with two of my favourite maggies. Real Simple and Self. let me tell you a little something about decadence...staying in on a crisp autumn evening, pumpkin spice candles lit, funny movie on netflix, and two fabulous magazines to sift through.
it's the simple things right? guess who is rereading them this morning? yeeaaah...
enjoy your day, lovelies!

i'm glad we have a forum to discuss our addictions. ;-) mine are lucky, real simple, self, domino (still going to claim it), various decorating maggies depending on cover/articles, rolling stone. there are so many more, but i am going to stop listing them now.
