I didn’t intend to read Real Simple cover to cover, at least not right now. I really was just flipping through the issue while eating lunch. Before I knew it, however, I was deep into the pages of the February 2011 issue.
Here are just a few things to love about February’s Real Simple magazine.
Cover: An assortment of foods–nuts, a piece of salmon, slices of avocado, etc.–looks as though artfully spilled from a cornucopia of nutritious eats.
Fashion Finds: Very nice selection of stylish, quietly elegant pieces. Love the reversible (suede to metallic) Tiffany tote bag and the tuxedo-stripe Banana Republic pants.
Food Stuff: A series of spreads, some reminiscent of Renaissance larder tableaux, illustrate the cover story on “superfoods.”
Health Scare Rx: Random pains and hitches? Ringing ears? Some common–scary, worrisome, uncomfortable–health concerns are discussed here.
Real Simple: An eight-page photo series on streamlining supplies and the drawers that house them. Every item is identified with a blurb that also reveals the item’s purpose. Includes medicine cabinet, kitchen, cleaning cabinet, desk drawer and toolbox.
