Throwback Friday: My Awesome Magazine Collection

At the end of the year I will have to share my updated list of awesome magazines that I’ve collected but until then, take a look at these old magazines that are a part of my ever-growing collection. Enjoy!

So, because I had such a fun time watching this film last night, I decided to revisit a post I wrote about it last year that perfectly sums up how I’m feeling right now. Enjoy!
