{Technology} This Will Change The Way You Get Your Magazine Fix

We are a few weeks into the new year (it's going so fast right?) and I have already read about 50 magazines and this is all because of the most unexpected thing; an app.  I say unexpected because anytime I post or speak about magazines, it's always about how much I wish I had more time to read them and how much I still love having a physical copy in my hand.

Butttt....I downloaded Texture last month because it was free for 30 days, so I thought why not? and it has truly changed my mag life.  And if you are a magazine freak like me, I think it will do the same for you & here's why.
First, you get to read unlimited current and back issues of over 150 magazines from all the big name publishers in all the magazine categories, including some foreign mags, all for one price a month. In addition to that, here are some of the features that make this app a MUST HAVE.

As mentioned above, I would have never EVER been able to read as many magazines as I already have this year and I am in LOVE with the features, like videos & photo slideshows etc. that you wont find in the print issues.

But the thing that I am the most over the moon about is the "My Collection" feature. It allows you to create your own personal library & save clips from the magazine into categories that you create. So for example I read the Canadian magazine Chatelaine, which I don't even recall ever seeing on the magazine stands here and I fell in love with it and I was able to clip articles, save products I wanted to buy/try to a folder I created with that name, save recipes, etc and tag features for reading later.

And these are just a few of the features. Texture is compatible with iPad and iPhone, Android tablets and smartphones and Windows 8 PCs and tablets. And your subscription gives you access on up to 5 devices. I read it mainly on my iPhone while I am in transit but I also do so on my tablet when I am relaxing at home or getting my latte fix at Starbucks.

After your 30 day free trial, regular rates apply & this offer is only valid for new subscribers in the U.S. only but say you don't like it (and I would be shocked if you didn't) there is no commitment and you cancel anytime.

What say you? Will You Try Texture?

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Laser Cut Faux Leather Jacket #PlusSizePick

Under the helm of Linda Heasley, Lane Bryant has definitely been mixing things up with a variety of limited edition curated collections and collaborations for their Fast Lane brand. Their latest is The Otis Collection, a collaboration with a team of design students at the LA Otis College of Art & Design.

The collection is a mix of drapey, flowy & textured pieces that are pretty neutral for the most part with pops of blue, grey and green.  My favorite piece from the collection is this laser cut faux leather jacket which should not come as a surprise because it is totally my style and I have similar jackets is other colors but none with the same laser cut vibe.

There is also a matching laser cut pencil skirt in the collection and here are some of the other pieces in the Otis Collection that I would totally rock.

What say you? What do you think of this collection?

{Link Love} Shouts & Raves | Vol 1

It has been so long since I have ranted or raved about things that I am loving or hating or shared links from my favorite sites, etc so I wanted to get back in the habit of doing so.  And there is lots to share, as my blog/twitter and just general interest feeds run deep. I mean...seriously deep and of course it's not just fashion, it's filled with beauty, home decor, travel, business, money, photography and more.

Speaking of favorites, I recently purchased a light box. I have wanted one forever and I am glad I finally just got one. Have you had something on your list that you have wanted forever? Just get it girl. Life is for the living and enjoying NOW!

Loving my #lightbox, so expect to see it A LOT �� Deets on this one & others> #liketkit #tealover

Anyway, on to the shoutin' and ravin'...

{Five Fab} Romantic Valentine’s Day Movies

Valentine’s Day is all about flowers, love, hearts, chocolate and romance. And romance comes in many shapes and forms and thanks to movies, it also comes with lots of laughs and fun and of course, even a few tears.  I am sure that you have see a quite a few lists featuring romantic movies for Valentine’s Day but most contain a lot of the usual suspects, so I wanted to share a few of my faves that, with the exception of one, may not be that well known.

My Favorite Five - This movie is hilarious as you will see from the trailer and since the lead character has 5 very defined requirements that no one man encompasses, she dates multiple men and of course life throws a monkey wrench or two at her that ruins all her fun. Available to rent or buy or stream on Netflix.
