Having the hard work of fixing a house up to sell behind us and having completed our move into our new home, I finally have a few minutes to relax and unwind. Lately I’ve discovered a couple of new favorite magazines, and re-discovered an old favorite:
I admit to a *slight* obsession with Fixer Upper on HGTV. Honestly, it wasn’t until Joanna Gaines brought her vision of rustic industrial furnishings to the masses that I realized that the home decor style I’d always loved was a “thing” now. This just so happened to coincide with the decision my husband and I made to buy a new home, and loading more than half of our stuff into a POD to stage our house so we could sell it really made me realize how much more simply and intentionally we wanted to live in our new home. A subscription to Magnolia Journal is only $20 a year for four issues.
Kismet led me to discover Faerie Magazine when I came across a Tumblr post recently listing a number of interesting magazines to check out. It’s right up my alley, filled with articles on warriors and goddesses, an interview with Rasputina, information on gemstones and myths and recipes of golden apples. The magazine is published quarterly, and back issues are available on the website.
Each time I travel to the mountains, whether it’s for work or for fun, I always pick up a copy of Edible Blue Ridge magazine. Of all the local versions of Edible magazine I’ve come across, the Blue Ridge one is the best. It’s always chock full of information on local food and beverage producers, and covers regional restaurants, food events and more. You can get your subscription delivered to your home, or you can pick it up at one of the many outlets throughout the region where it’s free to grab.
What are your favorite magazines? Tell me in the comments below and I’ll pick one lucky winner by May 15 to win a yearlong subscription to The Magnolia Journal.
