I'm on a quest. A quest to find my perfect magazine. A selfish endeavor, sure, but a satisfying one.
I am looking for cool interiors - wood and plenty of patterns and white walls, recipes laden with colourful, enticing photography, some fashion, and of course effortless, brilliant writing.
Every week (Tuesdays probably) I'm going to buy a new magazine I've never read before. This week, I bought Red Living. It looked glossy and delicious.
The majority of the magazine was food articles and recipes, which was no bad thing. Recipes I would very much like to eat, too, but I felt it could have done with a little more variety. Some wit thrown in for good measure, or a fashion piece would not have gone amiss.
I understand that this magazine is focused on food and interiors, as stated in the Editor's Note, and so I do not fault it for the otherwise mentioned lacking. It just fell slightly short of my expectations.
It was a glorious read. Best served with tea and sunshine. But I'm looking for a little more... something. Grit, perhaps. In any case, it's only a twice yearly so I'm not sure it would do me for 6 months anyway. I continue my search...
