You know how the little things get you really excited? And to anyone else they may seem, ridiculous? Or vain? I have a few things I get excited about. A new book, new nail polish or lipstick (not that I wear much of either but it’s still exciting), a perfectly made soy chai latte, a new t-shirt by Matrix … but something that always excites me is new magazines.
There’s just something about sitting and flipping. Looking at pictures, reading fascinating stories, the glossiness of the pages… I don’t know. I just love it.
I currently have a subscription to: Vogue (please don’t laugh), Bon Appetit, Cooking Light (although I may have let that one go), Vegetarian Times, Harper’s Bazaar (just stopped it) and other writing magazines I pick up along the way. Yes, I have a stack of about 50 I haven’t had time to read yet. And yet I can’t stop the subscriptions, no matter how badly I feel about neglecting them, because they always send me the best deals for them. Bon Appetit for 20$ a year, Vogue was 30$. They are practically giving them away! And when I don’t have a subscription to them, I long for them at the grocery check out and then pay full price. It’s sad really. But it’s such a small treat for the grand total of a hundred dollars a year.
And yet, one magazine was missing.
I have been waiting 5 years for this magazine to contact me and offer me a brilliant amount for a subscription.
And today they did.
Vanity Fair for 28$ a year.
I am now complete.
