Favorite Magazine {Contest Post #1}

"Oh, everyone's talking about it. 
The whole kingdom. 
The Grand Duke will be here any minute.
  He's been hunting all night
 for that girl. 
The one who lost her slipper at the ball last night. 
They say he's madly in love with her."

(If you missed the contest rules, check them out right here.
If you missed why this contest is happening, gooo oooover here-a!)

I like magazines.
A.lot.
I love flipping the pages so much better then scrolling through online links.
My recent most favorite magazine is Grace Ormonde's Wedding Style 
(this edition came out a little while ago.)
Photobucket
This is like the fairy-tale-bed-time-story-book for grown-ups.
I'd never want a wedding like a Grace Ormonde wedding.
Psh, and who are we kidding, I could never have the OPTION of having a Grace Ormonde wedding.
But it's fun to pretend?
Because let's be honest, I wouldn't ever really want to be Cinderella.
I just liked imagining it.

This magazine is laid-out so well.
It's not cluttered.
It's very appealing.
And these shoes?
If any one of you buys me those teal heels right there, I will name my first-born after you.
And my estate. 
Photobucket
My favorite thing to look at is the dresses.
Big pictures.
Right off the runway.
Stop my achey-breaky-heart.

So first item in the gift basket is Grace Ormone Wedding Style!

  28. Does National Geographic make me sound like a huge nerd? I don't subscribe to anything, but I especially love looking at the photos in old NatGeo magazines, a past time that began at my piano teacher's house when I was in primary school. My brother had his lesson first, and I would listen while looking at the photos. Whatever, I embrace my nerdiness.

  38. Saturday Evening Post....? I'm all into girly artsy, creative things, but recently my dad pulled out a couple boxes of Saurday evening posts which span through all of the depression and WWII. It's an amazing thing to jump into the past by not reading a history book, but looking at what people found funny, entertaining and stylish. Beautiful pictures too! It's honestly inspiring.
    It's good and sort of a favorite of mine right now.
