Every month my postie drops the latest copy of my Lonely Planet magazine subscription through my letterbox. I always save the magazine for a sunny day so I can sit outside and read it without any interruptions. It’s a wonderful magazine filled with stunning photography and interesting articles. I’m always left planning my next trip away and I’ve built up quite the bucket list over the last few months.
Here at magazine.co.uk we don't go anywhere without our Summer reads, especially if we're jetting off somewhere hot and sunny. Whether you're keeping fit while you're away, looking for adventure or just wanting to lie on a sun lounger with a cocktail in hand, we've got the perfect packing inspiration for you.
For the... Inspired Explorer
The last time I posted I was discussing my love of Women's Health magazine and just how it inspired me to not only improve my eating habits but giving me ideas on changing up my exercise routine, keeping me motivated. So in this post I thought I would share with you my own fitness routines in the hope that I might in turn inspire a few of you to perhaps get exercising or pushing yourselves further.
I'm a creature of habit so I tend to exercise at the same time each day, getting up at 6am whilst the kids are asleep so I can work out in relative peace and quiet. Exercising Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then going for a run on a Sunday. Continue reading
On the eve of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, we've rounded up a group of women to watch for their sheer sporting prowess and undeniable talent. From home turf Brazilian talent in Volleyball to the first woman to ever wear a hijab in the Olympic games, 2016 is set to be an exciting year for this group of Olympic hopefuls...
Katie Ledecky, 19
Odds to win a medal: 1/4
Why you need to watch her: She's tipped as unbeatable. Insiders have said it's not a case of whether she'll win, but by how much. Her speed is matched by her endurance too; she's just as fast swimming the 200m as well as the 800m. That's the equivalent of a runner winning a 100m sprint and a long distance 5000m run - and unheard of in the sport.
Did you know? Katie is one of the tallest swimmers in her field, standing at a stately 6ft tall. Continue reading
One of things that you would expect in an issue of Women’s Fitness is exercise advice and workouts. One other thing that was a pleasant surprise - the delicious and healthy recipes in the issue. I love looking for new recipes all the time, so this was perfect as there was plenty to try.
Around this time of year there's nothing quite so lovely as sitting in your garden, the sun on your back and a glass of something chilled in your hand. Georgia of Love on the Wall blog is enjoying the little things, embracing slow living and loving her Country Living magazine subscription with a glass of homemade flavoured iced tea. Cheers!
I think it’s important to admire the beauty of the nature around us sometimes. My parents had hopped off on a plane to America for a holiday, so I was in charge of watering the plants for a few days. They take great care of their garden and it is beautiful all year round. Although I'm not one for clearing out the chicken coops, I loved admiring the nature a little more being in charge of watering the garden. Noticing little juicy green tomatoes forming on the plants and bright red strawberries from the hanging basket I got my dad for Father’s Day.
I’ve long been a fan of leafing through glossy magazines on train journeys, and as a result have found myself loyal to a handful of subscriptions. However, this month’s introduction to Harpers Bazaar has opened my eyes to other great material waiting to be discovered!
When I was a child way back in the 1970s, I remember one of the things I looked forward to (other than my weekly copy of the Beano comic) was my father's monthly copy of the National Geographic magazine (now known as just National Geographic). It always stood out and caught my attention among the plethora of publications that graced our family home.
When it comes to the summer holidays, it can be difficult to come up with new and exciting places to go that will keep the whole family entertained. Fortunately, the UK has plenty of locations perfect for fun outdoor activities. Here are our top UK summer holiday destinations!
