City Girl’s Real Simple Corner {September}

by Valerie on August 24, 2009 · 7 comments

I really loved the September issue of Real Simple. Usually I like to write about just a couple of articles that really grabbed me but this month there were just so many:

* Super Naturals – Great piece on natural ingredients and products that incorporate them {most recommendations are paraben-free too!}.

* Wait That Was A Closet? – This ultimate space makeovers piece is awesome. Yes, I loved it because I live in a tiny postage-stamp apartment, but I could see it equally useful if you are trying to repurpose an area of a larger home.

* 4 Ways to Remake Your Space – great inspiration piece to get you out of a decorating rut whether you prefer lots of color or neutrals.

* The Hardest Working Wardrobe – these 10 new classics piece is perfect if you are looking to pull together a classic wardrobe that has style and an edge.

* 10 New Wardrobe Items That Always Work – a good complement piece to the piece above on 10 new classics.

* Stop the Madness – this is the quest of one man to go from manic multitasker to zen unitasker in one month flat. I loved this article – it was humorous and very real at the same time. Also, it tied in perfectly with Yogademia’s series on work-life balance, which includes monotasking /unitasking.

Disclosure: I receive Real Simple magazine free every month.

I have 2 favorite magazines Real Simple and More. I just love them. I have been holding off reading the current issue because I want to take it with me when I go on vacation in 2 weeks – it's killing me though! Thanks for giving me a sneak peek!

I have just found out that I can get Real Simple in the import section at Borders in the UK! Will keep my eyes open for this (it normally arrives a little after the published date).
