I’ve always been a lover of reading books and flicking through magazines but since growing up and getting a full time job (sigh) I’ve found that I really need to schedule in time to read. Nowadays I skip the tube to work and instead take the long route on the bus purely so I can take a pew and stick my nose in a book that I’m currently enjoying. Another time I get to have a gander through some books and magazines is on a lazy Sunday morning with a nice big mug of coffee and a cupboard full of eggs ready for a cookin’. So here’s a run down of what I’m currently loving.
- Pretty Happy by Kate Hudson – Ever since I watched ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ for the first ever time and multiple times since, I absolutely fell in love with Kate Hudson’s character both on screen and off. Both her and her mum Goldie Hawn are just the best people and have an approach to life that just leaves me in awe. So when I saw she had released a book I thought I would give it a go and find out what her secret is. I’ve only read a little bit of this book but so far so good! It’s styled a bit like a work book so get your pen and paper at the ready and the idea is that you work through and write down things about yourself as you learn about how she feels is the best way to live life.
- Belle Magazine – I recently did a little haul in Selfridge’s extensive magazine department and came out with this lovely interiors magazine courtesy of the Aussies. Always a sucker for a good cover, I loved the pinks, blues and golds featured on the front and the relaxed styles of interiors inside the magazine.
3. Hello Fashion Magazine – For a magazine that will only set you back a pound, I’ve been impressed with Hello Fashion Magazine since it’s launch. Their fashion pages are always lovely and the photography styling from this interview with Florrie Arnold is just the best for English Countryside whimsy.
4. National Geographic Traveller – So I’m the first to admit I’m pretty terrible at Geography but I also love to travel about and see new things. So I thought what better way to learn about the world than through a glossy magazine filled with lovely pictures and text that my more creative brain can better compute! I haven’t quite delved into this properly yet but fingers crossed this new idea might actually work.
So these are all the books and magazines that are keeping my bed company today, what are your favourites? Hope you have a wonderful weekend x
