Get Lit: A Few Magazines

May Details, April & May American Vogue


I've always loved reading magazines. I could spend hours getting lost in their content. One of the reasons I didn't want a tablet device was because I prefer to have the print editions of my books and magazines. There's something special about flipping through the pages, smelling the perfume ads, taking notes in the margins and having it to keep on your bookshelf. 

When I was little, I would cut up my subscriptions and make my own magazine creations. I'd write articles and pretend I was a fashion/beauty editor. I remember putting scotch tape over the pages I did myself to try and mimic the glossy effect. We didn't have a laminating machine at the Roman residence.

Having this blog and using sites like Polyvore allow me to feel like that little girl in her bedroom, dreaming of bigger things. Real magazines are my touch of nostalgia and I hope they never cease to exist in the publishing world.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
