am curious. Go on, spill.

LetThemEatCake Thu 18-Sep-08 22:16:28

of course, none - all on MN!

Word Thu 18-Sep-08 22:16:41

None. Not beautiful and don't have style.


Word Thu 18-Sep-08 22:17:30

Actually, I do have style. My style.

Red, Eve, Grazia and Coast - but trying to give up as they cost ££, and add nowt to my life. However, old habits die hard.

word! who needs style to read a magazine? or beauty?

I see the most unstylish and ridiculous thinsg in mags

am sure you are heavenly.

Binky - take a leaf from my book and make do with the freebies from the supermarkets - along with the formidable Lakeland Catalogue, of course!

(sorry, can't stop grinning, tonight)

National Enquirer
Red (occasionally but becoming a habit I should break)

In moments of desperation... Junior & Hello

Word Thu 18-Sep-08 22:24:10

And you, LTEC, are a sweetie. smile

Um, I took the "Style and Beauty" topic to mean you were referring to that type of mag, rather than the "Help-My-Baby's-Down-The-U-Bend" type. grin

Heat -I love celebrity gossip, so shoot me wink


Word Thu 18-Sep-08 22:26:24

On a serious note, then, I subscribe to "The Week". I used to buy a daily paper but
a) didn't have time to read it all
b) was fed up of my arms not being long enough to cope with it (despite the size being reduced for us wimmin)
c) was fed up of news print.

The Week much better on all counts.

LetThemEatCake Thu 18-Sep-08 22:27:37

fucker - I write for a celeb gossip magazine - so shoot ME!!

Word Thu 18-Sep-08 22:27:47

Oh, and cheaper too.

binkythebullet Thu 18-Sep-08 22:28:59

Oh, and I subscribe to The Week too - sorry, it was only my vacuous reads that immediately sprung to mind

I lurve the Lakeland catalogue. Although it is bad, as it makes me want to buy cleaning products that I do not need.

binkythebullet Thu 18-Sep-08 22:30:16

oooh - LTEC, which one? I may have to reveal the full extent of my mag addiction...I am a bit partial to Closer, Heat and Now too blush

anyfucker Thu 18-Sep-08 22:31:26

lol @ jugs

LTEC- can you say which one ? Just being nosy smile

anyfucker Thu 18-Sep-08 22:32:29

I like Look too. Its fashion for 20 yr olds, but I can dream sad

bythepowerofgreyskull Thu 18-Sep-08 22:32:34

Red subscription from last christmas
lakeland catalogue
baker ross catalogue

LOVE reading the trash mags at the hairdressers but can't buy them..

noddyholder Thu 18-Sep-08 22:34:00

Living etc Elle deco Grazia World of interiors Instyle Vogue Easy living Private eye shock no wonder i'm skint

rookiemater Thu 18-Sep-08 22:34:46

Zest - not really relevant to me any more as too old to care that body is going to pot
Red - about right for me
Good Housekeeping - about 30 years to old for me, mistake request for gift subscription

LetThemEatCake Thu 18-Sep-08 22:35:11

I can't really. envy Have got photos on my profile so it's all a bit too close to home and scandalous. Plus I write for serious mags too so need to preserve my career rep!!

but gossip pays well!!

My BiL used to be addicted to the Lakeland catalogue - was a real problem! got into loads of debt!

LetThemEatCake Thu 18-Sep-08 22:36:05

ooh, i love Zest, but never buy it - don't want to feel bad about myself

mamazee Thu 18-Sep-08 22:40:53

juno,vogue, id, adbusters, another magazine, elle deco...occasionally wallpaper but always regret it cos it make me feel poor
blimey thats a whole heap of cash...worth it though
i used to buy zest.
every mag makes me feel totally different though
