QOTW 1 : Do you buy expensive or cheap magazines?


I was wondering what other people buy when it comes to magazines! Do you buy the expensive ones like Marie Claire, Vogue etc. or the cheap ones like Glamour,Lucky etc.? And why?

I personally prefer the cheap ones for 3 major reasons : they're cheap (who wants to pay 5Euros on a single magazine?), they're not SO full of advertisements like the expensive ones and they represent my style and my pocket better than the expensive ones! Yes the Prada shoes and the Balecianga bag look really pretty, but I can't afford them!

The only time I will buy an expensive magazine is when they offer a very nice gift, like Marie Claire for instance!

So, which ones do you prefer and why? I'm waiting for your answers! :)

  2. Cosmopolitan and sometimes Glamour. I choose the magazines based on interesting articles I can read and if they follow "my style and my pocket" as you said.

  3. My ONE and ONLY magazine is Glamour! I'm a subscriber and I couldn't live without it! It's so full of images and fashion/beauty ads...it's very inspirational!! ^_^

  4. I buy mostly cheap one's such as Mirror ,EGO,Glamour and Lucky from Greece and Look and More from UK magazines as the clothes they show are closer to my budget and style!!!But when I 'm in Greece and buy the British one's I'm depressed cause some British shops do not exist in Greece...
    But I also like buying Vogue just to stare at the photographs and the styling of the models...

  7. the cheap ones, because they're also small, so i can carry them on the subway and the expensive ones only when they have a promo present that i like (cosmetics mostly).
    generally i don't buy as many magazines as i used to, they do cost a lot

  8. I dont get magazines generally as a rule, however if there is something bargin worthy free then that is a different matter!

  9. I only buy Vanity Fair. I don't like the others, they are all full of advetizers and silly articles on relationships and stuff like that. But I buy them if they come with a good freebie lol.

  17. Oh yes, I always buy the smaller version of Cosmopolitan because it's nice and small and I can't throw it in my handbag if I need to! :)

  19. I wish we had cheap subscriptions too! Our subscriptions aren't cheap and to be honest I don't buy EVERY single issue of a magazine (some are too small or not very interesting), so I don't buy any subscriptions!

    I'll follow your blog, because you got some really interesting nail designs (and I'm so into nails right now), but honey a little piece of advice... don't write that "follow me and I'll follow you"... it sounds really bad! You follow a blog because you want to, not because somebody says that they'll follow your blog if you follow their blog! I follow blogs and I just say " would you mind checking mine out too? :) " ! No offence, ok? :) I'm known to be honest no matter what, even if some people don't like it!

  20. Vanity Fair? I don't think I've ever bought that! What is it like? Hahaha sometimes I laugh a lot with articles on relationships!!

  30. So, you have a subscription to all of them! :) Lucky you!! ;) We don't have any offers like that in Greece! I don't have any subscriptions, I just randomly pick them up!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ahhhh that stinks! Usually they offer deals on their websites here.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. Erre Due! :) Yeah we got some cool stuff, but they're not that many, they're expensive (compared to your drugstore cosmetics) and we don't have amazing sales and coupons like you! Arghhhh!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. You're lucky! :) Which magazines do you prefer though?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Why did you include the link to your site? Isn't that against comment rules? Or a common courteousy not to?

  37. I have a few free subscriptions from different places. Elle Canada from buying ELF so many times. Elle and Flare from Rogers, which is our cable company here. I rarely buy magazines, but I regularly go to Chapters and read the latest magazines for free. ;)
