October issues

Being a regular reader of Vogue and Elle, there are not many other magazines which I buy. This month though I couldn’t resist getting my hands on Harper’s Bazaar after seeing photos of the Alexa Chung shoot. My favourite has got to be the blue Burberry dress. Love.

Ordinarily I would always say the September issues are my favourite, but this year I think I’m actually preferring the October issues. I particularly liked the feature on the English Woman in Vogue. One of the featured actresses, Felicity Jones had a particularly inspiring article. When referring to her bookish habits she remarked ‘I stopped looking at the free papers because I realised I might die without having read War and Peace’. It suddenly made me realise that since I’ve graduated I’m not reading enough (obviously not including the books I’ve had to read over the past couple of weeks for reviews for The Crack Magazine and North East Lifestyle). So I’ve come to a decision to try and read for at least an hour a day in the hope that the pile of books I want to read will start to get a little smaller…

    Totally agree, that blue dress is stunning (the orange one isn't bad either.) Alexa Chung has amazing style. I feel lucky that I have an hour train ride every day to read, its such a great way to start and end my work day.

    I'm not normally a huge fan of Alexa Chung, but I love seeing her all glammed up for these photos shoots, it really transforms her! The pale blue dress is my favourite 🙂

    Love these photos of Alexa Chung! And unfortunately, I hardly read at all this summer..just started reading a couple of weeks ago, and it feels so nice to relax and read when I come home from school. Hope your pile starts dwindling down soon!

    I have been trying to get off the internet and read before bed each night! It's such a good habit!
