Though someone questioned my discussing things like books on this tv focused blog I think I’ve mentioned that I have other procrastinations. With all the tv I watch it’s hard to believe, but I have been even known to multitask. Sometimes whilst watching television, or listening to some tunes, or god forbid sitting in silence, I love to flip through a magazine.
Flipping is one of the key criteria so I’ve given up otherwise meritorious efforts with the likes of the New Yorker, news mags, or even Vanity Fair. But there’s nothing like finding a fresh issue of a magazine on the newsstands for a treat or a pick me up. Unless of course it’s coming home to find one in your mailbox (and really we all know that’s the much more economical way to go).
So I was incredibly dismayed to find that one of my faves, Domino, is shutting down. It was a great décor magazine but it was more than that. As a small apartment dweller I can’t always relate to the estates displayed in others but Domino had a way of making the style, products, and tips relatable and even purchasable as well as adding a sort of lifestyle slant to things. But sadly ad sales just weren’t what they should be.
So now I’ll have to make do with my other subscriptions Real Simple, InStyle, Lucky, and of course Entertainment Weekly, and my hand me down Oprahs. Hmm, it seems like I do need another subscription, I guess I could give Marie Claire or Self another try…
