Bliss



I miss the days of teenage reading. I really do.
Sometimes I find myself wandering to the teen section in the newsagents, just to see if there still there, then I find myself daydreaming off into the world I used to know…

I often wish I had a younger sister, I could buy these for. In a decade of my life I must have revised all the layouts in my head and know the content of teen mags off by heart. The feeling of being 17, and reading Just17. Ha if only that was true. I read this one since I was about 13. I liked the compactness of Bliss and mantra of Elle Girl ‘dare to be different.’ I used to always buy Sugar if they were giving away a good free gift, as shameless as it may have been.

Then I spy a JLS free poster spread attached to one of the mags and it suddenly sends me back to reality and I am back in front of Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Elle to name but a few.

I guess generations change. But it does make me wonder why I get bored reading Vogue halfway through.

  2. I LOVED Just17 and Elle Girl. I always wanted to be one of the girls they stopped in the street and asked where they got their outfits from. A Just17 girl!

  9. I never buy vogue/Elle, they're what, £7 each and 75% of it is just adverts for designers and products way outta my league.

    I used to buy shout! every two weeks, it was a great mag. No idea if they still make it.

  10. I also wish I had a younger sister to share my teen interests with as well. But I just read Teen Vogue & magazines like Vanity Fair & Vogue to get the best of both worlds haha.

    I love your blog! :)

  12. I love teenage reading, no matter how old I am. Who says we can only read certain things at a certain age? But teenage magazines are not terribly tempting anymore.
