One of the many delights of taking a holiday is the blissful amount of time to read. Books, magazine, brochures, websites, blogs - whatever your poison it is refreshing to have the time to lose yourself in content that fires a passion or is non-work related.
In between crime novels, I enjoyed catching up on the great content created by some of my fav websites and magazines. My Fab Five Reads provides a good dose of daily inspiration, valuable tips, home decor updates, things to aspire to and generally puts a smile on my face.
I hope you can add some of these to your 2018 repertoire too!
1. ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST
I have a subscription to this gem thanks to Mr Minx. It genuinely is the gift that keeps on giving and whilst I love the website, I live for my monthly magazine to be delivered when I pour over each word and image. Every page is filled with AMAZINGNESS! Featuring celebrity homes, art collectors, exquisite gardens, pools and furniture that dreams are made of. AD is a must read for design lovers.
2. MY DOMAINE
A local favourite with social accounts that will have you double-tapping on every pic. My Domaine covers everything from Decor to Food to Travel. There is always an article that sparks my interest and is worthy of a quick read.
3. THREE BIRDS RENOVATIONS
If you don't already know these three sassy ladies - make it a priority to get to know them. Funny, informative, genuine and incredibly talented at what they do, Three Birds Renovations takes you on the journey of their amazing home transformations with weekly episodes, product guides and lots of laughs. With their Reno school launching in 2018 plus a number of transformations on the cards, I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.
Initially I subscribed to Sportluxe for some great workouts and recipes (Warning: Don't laugh the day after you do their Abs workout ... oh the pain!) However beyond superfoods and crunches I discovered some fantastic lifestyle content, Home Decor ideas, IG account suggestions and many aspirational travel locations and lifestyles ie. a couple who permanently travel around the USA in their Airstream called Mavis!
5. THE LUXPAD
A great find for the latest trends, Decor Tips and Tricks and recreating looks you love. I particularly like how most articles will also suggest products that fit the content so you can visualise the key pieces needed in your own home.
I'm always on the look out for more sites I am yet to discover. Any suggestions I would love to hear them!
