Day 24: Drawing Inspiration from Magazines

Problogger ChallengeI love magazines.  I buy them almost every time I go to the grocery store.  Sometimes I get home and I’ll take the magazine out of the grocery bag only to find that I already have the magazine.  Such a waste of money.  But there’s a reason I love magazines ~  they provide momentary escape.  They also provide inspiration.

I look at the glossy pages of Glamour and imagine that spending $395 on a pair of Tory Burch boots is perfectly reasonable.  I read the articles in Redbook and believe that my inner sex kitten really is underneath the gray sweats and stained t~shirt.  I peruse O Magazine and know that I can make a difference in just 5 minutes a day.

That’s what I want my blog to do ~ provide escape as well as inspiration for women who only have a few minutes in their  day.  Hmmm, inspirational escapism?
