To Start Your Day...





"The only real elegance is in the mind; if you've got that,
the rest comes from it." –Diana Vreeland


Hello to a brand new, fresh, fall month, full of promise! I always look forward to flipping through magazines at this time of year, as they are geared towards Fall fashion and full of fun tips and ideas. I haven't picked up an issue of Real Simple in quite some time, but I was quite drawn to this month's simplistic and richly colored cover. The quote above was found a few pages in...I really enjoyed this issue – the clarity and freshness of the editorials and the unique content, so relevant to today's living. For example:

* using a candle to aid in easing a difficult-to-zip zipper
* how to look your best online
* problem-solving office products
* new uses for old things
* classic suits

If you come across this month's copy, check it out and see what you think!
Have you read this magazine before?

  1. No-it's never appealed to me. I guess I don't like things simple, or magazine titles that are grammatically incorrect.

  7. love the first pic. that's an outfit I'd wear. all the images are beautiful. will have to read the issue since it's been a long time for me too since I picked up a copy.

    the shiny pants/tights? in the 3rd image look very elegant. and I love the long knit sweater in the 2nd image.

  8. I only tend to buy Real Simple when I've read just about all the other magazines out on newsstands and I'm desperate for something glossy....perhaps I'll give this issue a go though.
