Downtime is a luxury for many these days, and sometimes finding the time to read a full novel can be a challenge. When free time is fleeting, grab a beautifully designed magazine filled with inspiring words, pair it with a giant cup of tea, and sit back. Here are 9 of the best magazines we reach for when the weekend comes around:
- New Philosopher
A magazine for the big thinkers, tea drinkers and those seeking more from a weekend read than outfit suggestions, New Philosopher will tickle your fancy and prompt flowing thoughts.
- frankie magazine
One of the most visually satisfying magazines in existence, frankie magazine is a firm favourite amongst the Khoollect team. This Australian-based papery treat feels a lot like recieving a warm hug or a slice of Granny’s carrot cake and contains funny and relatable tales.
A feast for the eyes, Chickpea is a beautifully designed foodie’s dream from New York. It’s filled with handwritten fonts, gorgeous photography and plant-based food inspiration. This one’s also available in PDF form via the magazine’s website… perfect for your morning commute.
- Oh Comely
Out of London comes this wondrous bundle of comfort. Well written stories sit alongside dreamy images in Oh Comely, while real-life meet-ups and community projects pop off the pages and happen around the UK too. Think hiking adventures and gift swaps.
- Lunch Lady
Lunch Lady, a vibrant new magazine with a focus on food, family and fun, is full of feel-goodness, wisdom and delicious ideas. With a lean toward ‘from scratch’ living, wholesomeness and happy making, this magazine is a breath of fresh air.
- Lucky Peach
This energetic American title has all the food-oriented stories, interviews and recipes you could hope for on your Saturday morning lie-in. Big-name chefs, popular restaurants, opinion pieces and the newest food trends are all served up on the pages of Lucky Peach.
The sibling of New Philosopher, Womankind is a thoughtful, advertising-free publication that champions intelligence, art, slow living, creativity and progression. Each new issue sets its readers a new challenge (for example, a week without negative thought, or TV), which gets your brain ticking in a new way.
- Smith Journal
There are few things better than a good story told well. And, Smith Journal is filled with fascinating, funny and surprising tales spun to perfection. Beside its stories, you’ll spy awe-inspiring photos and clean designs.
- peppermint magazine
A long-running eco-chic publication centred on sustainability, environmental awareness and heartwarming inspiration, peppermint magazine is a glimpse into a better, cruelty-free world where creativity and harmony abound.
