The magazine is not dead - The Collective**

Its not often I find something that excites me in the supermarket (besides the Sara Lee fridge). But I did the other night.

Since the demise of my favourite mag, Notebook, I haven't found any regular reading matter worth laying out money for (besides books of course). There was Mindfood but it didn't always hold my attention. I can't stomach those celebrity gossip rags and the run-of-mill 'women's' magazines are way too domestic orientated for my lifestyle (Baking? Not for me.)

Now there's a new contender on the rack - renegade Collective. I don't know why I missed Issue 1, but this month's copy caught my eye immediately as it has a hot Mia Freedman on the cover. Its full of wonderfully positive stories of creative and inspiring people, stylish designers and exciting places.

Try it out, it makes you want to get up and do something original!

**This is not a sponsored post, I bought the magazine and loved it!


  1. I am so sad that "Madison" is shutting shop! I'll have to look into "Collective" - although the fact that Mia's on the front cover is somewhat off putting. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt :)

  2. Tks for the mag recommendation, I'll look put for it. I tend to spend my time buried on the inet these days although I bought a copy of harpers bazaar not long ago, thought the photography was awesome - has since become great material for my daughter's homework projects on advertising :-)

  3. How funny, Notebook was my favourite magazine too. I also brought the Collective yesterday for the Mia Freedman article. It was an interesting piece.

  4. Thanks for the heads up, I haven't seen this mag yet and will look out for it. I was reading the trashy mags at the weekend in the hairdresser, they do leave an icky taste in the mouth!
