This week's prompt for Project 52 is "Guilty Pleasure." I actually took this photo several weeks ago when I decided to do a post about the magazines that I read, but once I looked over the list of Project 52 photography prompts, I decided to save it for this week.
So, I love magazines. Over the years I've had subscriptions to a lot of different magazines. The bad part is that these days they seem to pile up and before I know it, I have 3 months of unread magazines. But that is changing. This year I vowed to stay on top of reading my magazines, which means I'm going to read each issue during its month. (Yikes! We're already half way through January and I haven't started on the January issues yet!) Here are the magazines that I currently have subscriptions to (if you buy magazines on the newsstand you're paying way too much).
Glamour. This is my favorite magazine. A friend who is in the magazine industry once described Glamour as the ADD magazine. I've diagnosed myself with ADD so it's a perfect match.
Essence. Every time I think that I'm going to drop this subscription, I can't. It's the black woman's magazine. These days though I find myself reading very little of the content and mostly looking at the photos. I do, however, enjoy checking out the recommended books feature.
InStyle. I like InStyle for the outfit ideas and celebrity photos. I'll admit that I rarely read the content beyond the polls and DVF's advice feature. (Ok. Maybe it's just that I like short articles and features and don't want to read the longer articles. Glamour has a lot of short articles, which is why it's perfect for me and my ADD.)
Travel & Leisure. I love to travel and this magazine features great locations and travel tips. It inspires me to plan my next getaway or vacation. I look forward to getting this magazine in the mail each month.
Entrepreneur. This is an excellent magazine for the entrepreneur. I've learned of some cool companies from this magazine and have been very inspired to start my own business one day. Plus, it has lots of advice and tips and tools for the self-employed.
I really want a good photography magazine to subscribed to, so if you have any suggestions leave them below. Which magazines do you subscribe to or buy?
