Surprises in the mail!

As anyone who has read this blog for long knows…I am a magazine addict. I just love them! Imagine my surprise when I went to the mailbox, just yesterday, and in it was a surprise. A surprise in the form of the Premier Issue of Vera Bradley Magazine!!!!

What a stupendous, completely unexpected, surprise! It isn’t a big magazine (do you sense I would love to see more?) but it has some great articles and product reviews (not just Vera products, lest you think it is all about Vera, but it IS all about conveying the “Vera Lifestyle”!). It has a few yummy party recipes for the upcoming holiday season, like Cheese Triangles made from phyllo sheets and Key Lime Zinger cookies. There is also a neat article about Carmel-by-the Sea, CA and packing tips if you plan a trip there. I loved the article about the family who had relocated to NYC but worked to create a cozy home that melded their way of life before NYC with the energy of the city. Of course, it was full of great shopping and product reviews, which the part of me that requires retail therapy appreciates very much, thank you.. The photography is gorgeous and I can see how this magazine could be the start of a lovely lifestyle magazine….Vera Style, of course! I can’t wait to see more. Check it out for yourself:

  1. Love it! At a local shop that carries Vera, they always have a few product catalogs and I always pick one up. I love their photo shoots, and how they always use people who work for the company and their children too as their "models." It seems like a great company to work for. How did you get on the list??

  2. I am magazine addict too! I will have to check this out, I had no idea they were starting one. Thanks for telling us about it!


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
