Magazine Subscriptions

As a tween and a young teenager I bought a new magazine every Sunday when my parents did the weekly shop. But as an adult I only buy magazines every now and then, usually for long journeys. During my University years I had a subscription to British Journal of Photography but saw that as more of a 'textbook' to help my studies rather than a glossy mag to be flicked through at my leisure. So it was a pleasant opportunity when contacted me to ask if I'd like to work together and write some content for their blog, 'The Hub'.

I'd really like to get back into reading magazines again and finding a title that I love and want to commit to. offered me the chance of subscribing to three titles for the year. I went for three in completely different genres to mix it up a bit. 'Women's Health', 'Cosmopolitan' and 'Sew Magazine'. I'm completely new to Women's Health and Sew but I've been a reader of Cosmo on and off for years. I'm looking forward to making time to sit down and flick through real pages as a change from getting all my information online, from blogs or websites.

You can read one of the reviews I've written for The Hub, a healthy look at Women's Health. The other two are due to be published soon so I'll keep you updated once they are live. But what I hope to do monthly on This Fashion is Mine is a round up of my favourite articles and/or features found in these three titles. Let me know what you'd like to see more of. I think a mix of fashion and beauty, healthy recipes and crafty tutorials describes this blog very well! So these magazine titles should fit right in!



  1. I loved reading magazines when I was younger but like you have sort of faded out of it, think I may have to subscribe to one again as I loved the feeling of it coming through the post!


  2. I love magazines and end up reading far too many! This sounds like such a good site, I'll have to check it out!

  3. I love the mixture of magazines you've chosen! Also loved your blog post for them. I think I'll be getting my Dad a subscription from there for Father's Day!
