Fun Fridays: Pulp Non-Fiction

This stack of magazines is a good summary of the kind of things I find awesome: OD-ness, nerding, geekery, girlie-ness.


  • Real Simple: This magazine truly has it all: home decor, creative re-uses for common items, organization & cleaning tips, thoughtful essays, and affordable classic fashion.
  • Smithsonian: History, science, art, and culture all in one spot. Perfect for getting my Indiana Jones fix.
  • Wired: Geeky fun of all kinds, from pop-culture to thought-provoking. Even better, this issue has a story on DIY stuff.

Store Purchases:

  • In Style: Purchased because Tina Fey is on the cover. I do love my girl Tina! Furthermore, there is the cover’s magical promise that this is “The COLOR Issue,” which means two things: 1) fashion spreads, and 2) COLOOOORRRRR! I’m all about that.
  • Vogue: Purchased when I needed a little fashiony-artsy-fun pick-me-up.

Any of these glossy magazines is perfect for a lazy Saturday afternoon read while painting my toenails a shiny color.  Mmmm, I can taste the cool green tea now.

What glossy cover tempts you in line at the Kroger?

    Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living, and all those, like, Decorate Your Charming Cottage magazines always beckon to me. They are so clean and industrious-looking! And usually there is some kind of pastry recipe involved. Not that I cook. I just like looking at the pictures.

    Again, I love how this assortment of magazines so perfectly fits you. 🙂

      Pastry recipe, YES! This makes me think that there should be a magazine called “Stuff to Read, TV & Movies to Watch, & Stuff to Eat Involving Cheese.”
      I would subscribe immediately.
