 Remember this? A few entries ago?

Well, one of the magazines I got was this one.




 
I don't always get to have a copy of Vogue. And one from the UK at that! I am not  a big fan of fashion magazines, but I look at them because of the layout. Fine, I lie. I do like to look at pretty things too! But it is true--I AM A SUCKER for a good magazine layout. Vogue is no exception. 

Let me apologise if you are a part of a magazine staff and you are living in the Philippines. I like the concept of some of the magazine layouts, but sometimes, they need to learn that less is more.  So far, where local magazines are concerned, only Meg (haha, am biased because my high school friend Nissie works there as the art director--but she will be transferred to another magazine from the same publication company) and Preview of Summit Publishing have met my satisfaction rating (as if I know a lot about magazine publishing, haha).

And I am also in agreement with her with this magazine--Real Simple. We had a copy once at home. The layout was clean. No fussy elements. I don't know where the magazine is now--so I'm putting it on a wishlist (for my birthday)! I want a copy of Real Simple magazine--the latest, or even a back copy will do!

While I post this picture, please allow me to say something about the books! :)





The first book is Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet. My aunt gave it to me over a year ago. The story is about a girl and her imaginary friend who eventually leaves her (don't they at some point in our childhood?). Twenty-three years later, the imaginary friend comes back--in the flesh. Could someone from your imagination be your one true love? I think this is one book guys should read too--seriously! That is, if shedding an occasional tear isn't an issue for you. I practically used a lot of tissues while reading this book. I won't go into details, you have to get this book for yourself.

The next one is Trinny and Susannah: The Survival Guide by Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine. It is a book that I would forever grateful for my older sister for leaving it behind. It is a lot of help! The book is chock full of tips, sensible advice and it even contains quick home remedies for a cold, a tooth that has been knocked out, or what to do with a crying child. I am not sure if it's available in Powerbooks or anywhere in the Philippines. I hope they do! I have to get their "What Not To Wear" book. It's full of vital information. This is a book every woman should have!

This portion has been mentioned here!
