Fashion Magazines 2.0

Considering how much I like to spend lazy hours with a good magazine, it's frustrating not to have access to the international ones most of the times. And well, I have a home loan to pay so I (sadly) can't waste all my money in expensive eye candies...!

I'm not sure if I'm the last one to heard of it, if it's one of the best kept secrets of the internet, but when a couple of days ago a friend sent me a link to Mygazines.com and I read their About page, I almost faint:

"Mygazines is your free place to browse, share, archive and customize unlimited magazine articles uploaded by you"

It works in a way similar to Foto Decadent, but here you have the entire magazine or selected articles instead of the photo editorials to browse.
I searched trough the categories of the magazines section - the classic Women's and Men's interests, Arts&Culture, HobbyCrafts, Sports, Travel, etc. - and I found all the latest issues of US and British most popular fashion mags...it's too good to be true!


You can't download or print them, but you can create a personal archive, saving your favorite articles and pages. In a while you can have your ideal issue of everything and I think it's not a too bad compromise!

I hope other international editions will be added soon. For now, with a good pair of glasses, eye drops for computer eyes, a comfy armchair and some pillows, I'm ready for these magazines in version 2.0 (or 2.1??).
