BBC Good Food magazine is fool proof, easy to use and the wide selection of recipes are great for all to follow. Every month its packed full of recipes, meal planning ideas and seasonal tips. Style at Home magazine is the home decoration magazine for those who are looking for inspiration on a DIY budget. It is full of home decorating ideas, smart shopping tricks and the home images give you plenty of ideas for your own home.

The National Geographic magazine takes you on a journey around the world and back again. I’ve been reading for years, the infographics, photography and articles are informative and fascinating. New Scientist magazine is the one for you if you’re looking for science and technology articles written in layman’s terms – they also give a good breakdown on the cultural and social aspects of the latest science and tech discoveries. 

Empire magazine is full of news and reviews from the world of cinema. It crams in movie reviews, director and actor interviews, behind the scenes articles and photographs. The Radio Times magazine is the TV and radio listings guide you must download. Every week it’s your guide to what’s coming up on your telly box and radio – from listing guides, reviews and interviews it’ll keep you informed.

Mollie Maker magazine is full of inspiration for crafters of all types - from sewing to knitting to pottery - it inspires me to try new things. Like Instagram for crafters but in a magazine! The Week magazine is great for those of us want a condensed look at the week’s news, it provides an opportunity to stay up to date with UK and World news and events.
