Do you guys subscribe to print magazines? I seriously get giddy when I get an issue of Real Simple in the mail. Aren't their covers amazing? Then it sits on my counter or bedside table and I stare longingly at it as I'm chasing Mila around, making dinner, drifting off into an exhausted sleep.

But there is just something so wonderful about flipping through the pages of a glossy, new magazine. Some of my favorites are below:

Vanity Fair - Smart and sophisticated with witty writing, beautiful photography and cutting edge stories.

Real Simple - Recipes, decor, fashion, organizing: What more could you want? Plus the pictures are gorgeous.

Cooking Light - Tons of healthy recipes (this is probably the one I do read the most on a regular basis). They are super easy, and it's nice not to have to read a recipe off of a computer screen.

The Economist - World politics, culture, science, economics. It's some dense reading, but I'm telling you, you'll feel ten times smarter after you read just one article.

What are your favorites? I'd love to hear!

P.S. All of these are available online as well!

I really enjoy turning a real page too, it's so much more relaxing than the onscreen equivalent. I love cooking mags and VF, but my newest find is a parenting magazine called Baby London! It has articles on health, work, relationships and my fav, travel! Having a new baby changes everything but its nice to read how other mums are making it all work!! xx

I adore cozying up with my print magazines. I always get House Beautiful, Traditional Home and sometimes I'll pick up others at the market!

I subscribe to Cooking Light and MS Living. I have thought about let them run out, but I just love the feel of a magazine and tagging the page corners for recipes and craft ideas.

i do love a good snuggle with a magazine - I love Real Simple, too but my other faves are Yoga Journal (TONS of healthy recipes and food for thought along with the yoga) and The New Yorker - another one that just makes me feel smart.

I love the Atlantic and Real Simple. Also I subscribe to a few online magazines. But they don't compare to paper print.
