Ever since I was in grade school, I have bought japanese magazines and they have always been my favorite.   I have quite a collection. Of course Vogue Paris and Vogue España are a close second but to me these are the best.  It could have something to do with me being half Japanese, since I identify a little more with the imagery and culture.

I  spend hours selecting them (there are soooo many to choose from) then just as many hours looking at them.  The products, the clothes, the style, the environments......etc.  When I go to my local Japanese bookstore, I make sure to max out my parking meter and have no where I need to rush off to on my schedule.   

They are a source of inspiration.  I will definitly be doing my own version of flower illustrations over photographs (as seen above) soon because I love the carefree sketchbook feeling that combo evokes ♡
