Magazine love...

Helloooo! My name is Claire and I am a fashion and style blogger, juggling a Junior PR role with fangirling Maria. While she's off sunning herself, today I wanted to write about magazines. It might come as a bit of a shock to you that, as a blogger and a self-confessed social media addict, I'm a rather big fan of print.

 Perhaps it's the feel of holding something solid, something than can't be accidentally deleted in the middle of an electrical storm, and will lie, untouched, in boxes in years to come until discovered by my great grandchildren (ahem) in 2060 to gasps of “I can't BELIEVE what they wore in the noughties!” I've been lucky enough to be featured in Grazia magazine this week, and it has been the single most exciting blogging exposure I have had, to date. It's not even the readership, or the name “Grazia”, that is so awe-inspiring. It's that it is in print.

Vice & Jalouse
Blogging is immediate and fresh and current and delicious and wonderful, but I think there will always be a place in the fashion world for a good glossy. Something you can stick in your handbag and spill your tea over. So, even though I will happily concur that magazines can be slower off the mark with trends and gossip, monthly editions especially, there will still always be a special place in my heart for the shiny and tactile world of print. Here are a few of my favourites...
Thank you to Maria for letting me fill the space while she's away! Come and visit me at my blog Jazzpad xox
