The phrase above are words I life by. And I can't even imagine how much more complicated my life could get. But I have a home, a husband, and a very large dog. Both of whom shed. (I love you hunny!)
I have found a magazine that doesn't make me feel sleezy (like cosmo) and a bit selfish (or instyle, for spending all of my hunny's money). Real Simple.
This magazine is the epitome of its title. Its is beautifully and cleanly designed, free of clutter and disorder. There aren't annoying articles and blaring titles. And there are actually amazingly great style tips. This magazine is the Great Divide of Blue Bell. Uncomplicated and stunning flavors free of imperfections.
My favorite part of this magazine is the snip-its throughout from readers. Glorified reviews if you will on a certain product. But what's fabulous is they will tell you that Jill is from Seattle, she wears pink socks to bed and.... blah blah blah. They tell you cool little things about the reader. I like reading those little snip-its.
The last page of the magazine is a "meet a Real Simple reader." article. Great questions, great answers. And life at its best. Below is my own real life questionnaire. Feel free to copy and paste:
