I subscribe to a few home decor magazines that I look forward to receiving each month, like Better Homes and Gardens and Country Living. I eagerly await their arrival, knowing their pages will be filled with attractive layouts, tasty recipes, garden and home ideas, DIYs and more.
I’ve seen several new magazines start up over the past few years aiming to offer the same thing only in a digital format. I’ve given most a passing glance, as none grabbed my attention.
Until I came upon Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll.
Gorgeous. Stunning. Inspiring.
Those are the three words that keep popping up when I describe this magazine to friends.
Jennifer Carroll wears many hats from event planner to designer, and trust me when I say she’s creative! And the contributors to each issue of the magazine read like a who’s who of my favorite DIY and lifestyle bloggers!
The best way to convey to you how gorgeous this magazine is, would be to show you some pages and layouts, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do today! These images – all from the September/October 2013 issue – are only a fraction of the eye candy packed into the magazine.
What captured me first was the dazzling photography, yes, but it was also the eye-catching details within each photo too. Take this image below, for example, of a freshly baked pie. I love the mini bunting made from fabric scraps as well as the fabric-covered number 7. Aren’t they pretty? This is from “A Pioneer Birthday” – a sweet party for a little girl.
Two gardening trends that I adore are terrariums and fairy gardens. Celebrating Everyday Life combines the two with “tiny enchanted gardens” that are little works of art!
I spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoors in the Fall, especially when the air turns crisp and the temperature is cool. Wouldn’t you enjoy sitting by this fireplace? What a focal point to a patio setting, and something that looks good both day and night whether it has a roaring fire going or not!
Why would I call the print edition luxurious?
Because the print edition is much more than a regular magazine. Instead, the pages are printed on heavy-weight paper and bound together like a soft cover book, one that you’ll want to keep on your coffee table to share with your guests.
