Goodbye Cosmo. Hello Porter.

If you are still unaware of my obsession with magazines, you probably are not following me, at least not enough. Or at all. Anyway, I will say it again for you my dear reader – My ultimate dream is to land a job at a fashion magazine, as an Editor. And so far, I knew my destination was Cosmopolitan. Or so I thought.

But lo and behold, for another GIANT has entered and TAKEN OVER the publishing world.

PORTER is the game-changing new fashion magazine – powered by NET-A-PORTER.COM – for the stylish, intelligent woman of now.

Delivering an authoritative global point of view and a bespoke curation of fashion, beauty, travel and culture, PORTER combines the intimacy of print with the instant gratification technology allows, meaning that you can shop everything that inspires you directly from the page in two ways – either through the innovative digital edition or with the free NET-A-PORTER shopping app.

Moreover, this publication actually offers something to read, instead of just glossy pages with high-resolution pictures of products I would have to starve for 3 months to buy. Almost fashion literature if you like – timeless, educating, engaging and the one that leaves its mark. It’s much pricey here in Dubai, AED 60/issue, whereas you can get a yearly subscription for 17GBP. That is actually one heck of a bargain!

PORTER tops my list of favorite magazines; following PORTER would be Elle, Emirates Woman, Harper Bazaar and Cosmopolitan (listed in the order of preference). All these have Middle Eastern editions and hence preferred. Publications like Vogue, Marie Claire and W don’t have their regional editions for this part of the world yet, so I tend to buy them once in a few months.

For weekly buzz, I love my Grazia and Ahlan. And then there are my favorite blogs for daily fashion fix. Click here to check out my favorite blogs.

I do like to read other genres as well; I used to be a Reader’s Digest fan at one point. I also flip through Friday, OK and lifestyle section of newspapers.

So, that’s my magazine shopping cart for you. What magazines do You religiously follow, and love?
