Living Without LivingEtc....just...


I subscribe to more magazines than I have fingers - all in the name of research, of course! But my most beloved, most anticipated, most can't-believe-how-many-creative-people-there-are-out-there-check-out-how-they-live magazine is Living Etc. I don't care that it arrives to me a good month after my beloved Brits have read it. I run with anticipation to the local newsagent each month, (thanks Maxie!) pop it in the pram, race home again and then savour every single page with a piping hot cuppa at my side. I've had this same routine for three years now.
So, to get home last month only to discover that it was nowhere to be found was deeply disturbing. Cannot for the life of me work out when it slipped out from amongst the baby paraphenalia. I am still only getting over it! It's a wonder I haven't lost sleep...
Simply cannot wait to visit Maxie and be handed the latest issue tomorrow.

You are SOOOOO right. As a devoted magazine junky, it's the best one yet. And it reminds me of the 18 months I spent living in the UK. Hope you can hang out for one more day!

As a fellow mag addict I feel your pain. Im often found burrowing through the newsagents shelves in search of my monthly LE fix!
Though in recent months I have left it where it is. After years AND a dedicated shelf full of LE's deliciousness, its just not leaving me with the same warm and fuzzy anymore. Sad days.

oh girls, devastating to lose any mag you love.
and camilla, i see what you mean, i think the gfc has had something to do with LivEtc being a little thinner, a little more 'in-house' in terms of decorating ideas. i have faith she will return to her former glory very soon. so what's your fave these days? it seems like a good idea for a post actually - seeing what we're all reading/perusing.
