Review: Blogger's Magazine 'Aesthetic'



Today I decided to do a bit of afternoon reading as it was actually sunny for once! I read'Aesthetic' magazine; which is a beautiful A5 sized brainchild of Michelle and Philippa. This issue, number 2, has already sold out and I can easily see why. This one's from bloggers, about bloggers, with bloggers photographing other bloggers. In case you didn't guess it's called the Blogland Edtion.
It's wonderfully writen by all the contributing bloggers and the illustrations (by Philippa) are beautiful. It includes articles about bloggers, fashion, icons and styling advice, travel and shopping destinations.
Some of my favourite articles are by Michelle herself, with a 'how to style' article and a piece on the well known beauty blogger, 'Zoella', and a travelling article on Venice. A thing I love; to travel,
So this neat little magazine encapsulates it all, with a focus on fashion, but veering away from the fashion magazines style of shoving it down your throat and instead choosing to take beautiful photos and illustrate the clothes. Something I thought was very unusual but a great concept.




I'm looking forward to issue 3! Have any of you bought this magazine, or a previous issue? Do you like these blogger style magazines? Or do you have any to recommend? The next one I'll be reviewing is Pretty Nostalgic- one that focuses on vintage finds!
Thanks for reading. please comment/ subscribe if you liked this post :)

Thanks so much for the comments, I love reading all of them and really appreciate every comment I receive.

I DON'T do follow for follow' as it's rude and impersonal. So please DON'T ASK me to follow you! Leave your link and I always check out blog URLs left for me of my own accord and if I like a blog I'll follow anyway.
Hope this doesn't put anyone off reading my blog or come across as negative :)
Thank you
