Tell Me: What Are You Reading? (The Magazine Edition)

Alright, friends: let's discuss magazines for a moment. While I love glossy publications like Sunset, Sactown, Real Simple and the occasional Martha Stewart Living, I've been drawn to independent magazines more and more over the last several years. There are so many beautiful publications sharing stories in creative ways. Can we all raise a glass to the survival of print?!

Here are just a handful of recent favorites: 

Weekend Almanac // "What Are You Reading: The Magazine Edition" -

I couldn't wait to snag a copy of the first volume when it came out and I've already got the second volume on pre-order. If you're looking for a delightful celebration of the joy found at the weekend, you should definitely get a copy for yourself. 

To Buy: Weekend Almanac

Hearth Magazine // "What Are You Reading: The Magazine Edition" -

As a Kickstarter backer, I received the first two volumes of Hearth Magazine. I was so excited to get them in the mail as both are full of beautiful imagery and stories. You can find both in their shop and Vol. 3 comes out at the end of this month!

Another Escape // "What Are You Reading: The Magazine Edition" -

Another Escape is a fantastic independent publication focusing on creativity, exploration and life's journeys. I can't quite remember how I came to find the magazine, but I'm very glad I did! Vol. 1 is a worthwhile read and Vol. 2 is now available.

Now I'd love to hear more about what you're reading!

In the comment section below, tell us:

  1. The name of a favorite magazine/publication
  2. Why you love reading it
  3. Where you buy the magazine (online, brick and mortar stores, etc.)


I can't wait to get some recommendations from you all! 

Please note: I was not compensated in any way for these recommendations. I just have a soft spot for beautifully-told stories and inspiring imagery.



Friday Favorites + Weekly Wrap Up


I kicked off last weekend with a day full of wine tasting in Amador County (wine grapes pictured above) to celebrate a dear friend's birthday and this weekend is sure to include plenty of wine as I head off to a bachelorette weekend in Pismo Beach. I can't say I'm too upset about it all. :)

As usual, I've gathered up a few random favorites from around the web and wrapped up the posts for the week in case you missed something. Don't forget, I've also opened up the blog to sponsors and would love to work with a few more fun brands, makers, artists and fellow bloggers. You can learn more about the sponsorship opportunities here, if interested!

Friday Favorites: 

  • I recently discovered Another Escape and was super excited to dive into the publication when Volume 1 showed up in my mailbox. Such a beautiful magazine.
  • These photos of polar bears under water made my heart melt!
  • Loved this video + blog post from Adina over at Gluten Free Travelette! I must say, the footage of their pup Parsley is my favorite. :)

Wrap it Up: 

  • If you're not familiar with the work of Nicholas Wray, scoot on over to Monday's post to learn more about his thriving photography business and how he started out as a creative entrepreneur.
  • There are some shiny new travel tips in the app store, my friends! I've added a few things to my Exploring the U.S. Northern Rockies app, so be sure to check it out!


What are you all up to for the weekend? Fun stuff, I hope? Make it count, my friends!
