Magazines have become a rare treat for me now, thanks to the tight lifestyle that is being a student (i'm sorry Vogue/Elle/etc but i gotta pay for tha booze somehow). However, whilst at home last week my generous papa decided to buy me one. I ended up having nothing short of a gleeful fit in the supermarket magazine aisle when i spotted the autumn 2011 issue of Beautiful, a "plus size" mag that i had never seen there before.
There is an amazing piece with the model Fluvia Lacerda styled by Gabi Gregg, whose blog was one of the first i followed and loved. There's also a couple other features that really stuck out to me (see pictures below).
The quality of the magazine is amazing, the pages are thick and glossy and the design (typography and layout etc) is super impressive. I've never bought it before but it surpassed all my expectations and didn't burn no wallet holes at £3, so all in all, good times.
I seriously suggest buying it if you're lucky enough to lay your hands on one!
