This post has no crafty component to it, nor will I be sharing some fabulous new recipe. Crazy, right?! But here’s the thing – I’m doing something even more important than that – I’m sharing a much-needed brain break idea with you. While everyone is knee-deep in summer shenanigans, it is easy to get lost in all of the activities that the kids are involved in and shuttling your sweeties from one play date to the next without taking a second glance at momma’s sanity level. It is so vital to be able to stop and take a minute (or sixty) to rest, recharge, and refresh your Momma heart.
With the Texture app, I now have all of the latest and greatest magazines like People, Vanity Fair, Vogue, BH&G, and Real Simple at my fingertips at all times and can read them whenever I get a minute without having to subscribe to oodles of different magazines, nor do I have to haul around physical copies. Genius.
While it seems like an app with these capabilities could be super tough to navigate, it’s actually the complete opposite. No joke. When you first open the app, it displays some of the New & Noteworthy stories. I admittedly liked this feature purely because I don’t find any of this info on the only channel that is typically on our TV: Disney Junior.
Another neat feature that I fell in love with is the ability to select “Favorite Magazines.” Now, I can easily find my faves without having to scroll through a giant list each time. Additionally, the app will notify you when a new version of your favorite magazines are available. So thoughtful, right?
The last part of the app that I wanted to touch on is the Categories section. Not only can you save your fave magazines like I shared above, but you can also search for specific articles or magazines based on a variety of topics. You know me – I love me some craft & hobby goodness – so this was a no-brainer for me. That Copper Tones article has already given me some helpful ideas for how to incorporate a new color scheme into my home for fall and I would have never found it without the Categories section.
Because the Texture app is available across a variety of platforms and is tablet and phone friendly, I can use any of my devices to read when I get the chance. Also, because I’m not dropping an arm and a leg on multiple magazine subscriptions each year and instead paying a small monthly fee, I can have access to all of the glossies that I want.
Want to read the latest Before & After transformation in this month’s Better Homes & Gardens? You can do that with Texture. Want to learn how to always sit so gracefully like Kate Middleton from this month’s InStyle magazine? Join the club. I’d like to have her wardrobe while I’m at it.
