Marie Clair Maison







A pile of beautiful, glossy magazines, a steaming skim latte, and an hour or two of precious free time. These are the things that made my evening last night so delightful. They've finally rotated out all the Christmas magazines, so the covers boast colorful new resolutions, Valentine wonders, and yummy new products! One of the large beauties I pulled off the shelf was Marie Claire Maison. Holy moly, I've never seen so much color nor so much fabulous detail. I loved it! Of course, with a lot of the imported magazines, it was a bit out of my price range (hello 10 bucks). And it was actually December's edition. But it was still amazing and I'll be on the look out for upcoming issues!

Oh I know! Isn't nice to see something different than Christmas in the magazines? It's so funny because I was flipping through some at my Barnes recently and I had seen almost everything on the blogs already. I didn't feel the need to spend any money on them.
