No, really, they describe who I am me and what I live for.
Don’t believe me? Keep reading, cause chances are it’s the same for you too.
Sitting in Gatwick airport on our way home from our honeymoon (don’t worry, honeymoon posts start Thursday!) I hurried into WH Smith and randomly selected two magazines that looked pretty fantastic.
They’re not fantastic. They’re PERFECT.
First allow me to gush about Pretty Nostalgic.
I picked up the second issue of Pretty Nostalgic (currently on its third issue) for its beautiful design, unique magazine size/heavyweight paper (don’t judge me these things make a difference) and articles on crafts, cooking and beautifully handmade goods.
focuses on handmade items and celebrates “everything that’s brilliantly British”. I only wish there was a Canadian version.
Let’s take a sneak peek at some of my favourite articles:
The Natural Perfumery teaches you how to make your own scents. What a great excuse to plant more flowers in your garden.

I love how Seashore Foraging
reminds you to live simply. This article is about a couple living on the channel islands make delicious food from what they forage in the yard and on the seaside, from kelp to winkles
Yes, Seashore Foraging reminded me that the simple life is a rewarding one, which is why I loved the second magazine,
The Simple Things
This new magazine (launched Sept 6, one day before I bought it) is all about stepping away and stepping back. Stepping away from the complications of life we get so entwined in and stepping back into another time where people made homecooked meals nightly, took walks through the park to refresh their senses, churned butter rather than pick up a brick of it from an overlit store for goodness sakes. Simply said, this magazine encourages you to “embrace a simpler life”.
One of my favourite things about this magazine is:
The recipes. They are delicious and, you guessed it, simple. Soon I will share with you one I made two days after getting off the plane. (I just couldn’t wait).

An adorable quirk to The Simple Things
is that it’s organized by time of day, starting with a breakfast recipe on pages labelled Dawn. I just loved the article on CHEESE. How can you go wrong with an entire article on cheese I ask you. (you just can’t)
So yes friends, these magazines describe who I am – a lover of handmade goods and an old soul who strives to live in a simpler time.
What are your favourite magazines and how do they relate to you?
Doesn’t that sound nice?
