Cosmo is really the only magazine I’ve ever read consistently.  And I still read it now that I’m married.

I’ll occasionally pick up a People at the grocery or something too.

This is an interesting topic. When I saw the title the first thought in my head was: “what I’m NOT reading anymore.” And I’m very, very happy that I’m no longer reading articles and books about how to cope with being single, how to find the right guy, how to get a guy to commit, how to tell if he really loves you, etc. etc. Haha!

I agree that Cosmo and some of the other mags are single girl focused. I am married six months now and I don’t read those anymore… instead for fashion advice, I love InStyle magazine. For home things and recipes, I love Real Simple. I also think Vogue is just an all around classic ladies’ magazine for fashion, accessories and makeup info, as well as well-written feature articles.

I am thinking of subscribing to Allure — they have a deal on it at Ulta right now. And Allure issues have $5 Ulta coupons inside every month, so the magazine ends up paying for itself.

Oh, I also like Lucky magazine for info on shopping bargains.

I’m not married yet (4 more months!), but I am also a magazine junkie and my preferences have definitely changes as I’ve gotten older and more settled.  Have you tried Marie Claire?  It’s consistently one of my faves and I feel is more grown-up than either Cosmo or Glamour, but not too old like Redbook. I also got hooked on Oprah’s magazine while visiting my Future Mother-In-Law.  It may be more appropriate for her age group, but I still enjoy it.  It’s practical like Real Simple or Martha Stewart Living, but with a lot more relationship/touchy-feely stuff.  I also love Psychology Today, which always has a ton of relationship articles and lots interesting stuff about how our brains work, and is not too sciency or anything either.  Elle is another good one too – definitely more Fashion focused, but with some interesting articles too.

Women’s Health, Glamour, Cosmo, and sometimes I’ll read my MIL’s interior decorating magazines for home inspiration, now that we have a house 🙂

I still love the girly stories in glamour & cosmo but I LOVE women’s health because it keeps me so motivated to eat healthy and stay fit 🙂
