Growing up without the internet and only three channels on the tv, meant magazines were a monthly visual & editorial treat providing all the need to know information and styling inspiration our generation could want.
Nowadays I rarely buy womens magazines as all the publications aimed at our age group feel stuffy, condescending, full of articles we’ve read before and uninspiring style.
I found another recent favourite in my search for all things witchy. Sabat Magazine is beautifully designed, mainly black and white publication that explores the intersections of modern witchcraft and feminism – illustrating the growing interest in magic and how spirituality can offer a source of empowerment in modern life.
Reading That’s Not My Age recently, I was interested to read about Saar, a Dutch website for women over-50 which launched in 2016. This autumn the editorial team (all over-50) produced a special edition, one-off magazine.
It’s such a shame it’s in Dutch, so we can’t read it – but TNMA says it features articles on work, families, sex and relationships and psychology – and the cover image looks like just the kind of aesthetic we would love to see here in the UK.
