I've got to admit, I don't buy many magazines anymore. I occasionally get drawn to a magazine cover which is aptly displayed at the supermarket checkout and add it to my trolley full of groceries in a last minute hast. Once home though, a quick flick through it usually reveals images and ideas that have been rehashed from google or any of the many other facets of the web. Don't get me wrong, there are definitely times when I love to hold these bright and glossy paged periodicals in my hands to discover the latest trends, celebrity secrets, best beauty buys to make me look younger or thinner or taller etc, recipes, places to holiday and fitness grazes but as far as magazines generally go, I personally rarely find articles that inspire my mind. With so much amazing content being produced via bloggers, I much prefer to log on to Bloglovin which houses most of my favourite blogs under one site. Here I can decide on my own content and tailor it to fit my taste, which is photography, a bit of travel and lifestyle, some design, a tiny bit of fashion and the fact I am genuinely able to connect with people who have honest, passionate gusto about their lives and interests and who are inspiring.
A sneak peak at the new Messenger Collective; which is full of inspiration, class, beauty, style, innovation, design, technology, authenticity and the stories and people behind the stories
I have since found an exception to my above boldly stated rule that I wanted to share with you. It is called the Messenger Collective. Something about it grabbed me. Perhaps it was its sophisticated 'less is more' kind of feel cover. A hurried skim through the pages revealed some stand out article titles and catchy images in both colour and black and white and I just knew I had to read it. This classy non syndicated publication is one that will have both you and your man reaching for it. It is full of grit that you will both enjoy sinking your teeth into. Messenger Collective is free of the fluff that is currently floating around the net and making its way onto pages of rehashed content in a lot of mags out there. It is the creative thinkers magazine full of knowledge and inspiration from all over the globe yet still manages to deliver its content with a personal vibe. I also love how there is a web site listed at the end of most articles directing the reader to further information or research on the stated topic. This one has a huge thumbs up from me and is definitely worth a look.
Have you found any great resources for inspiration lately?
