I like to keep an eye on what trends are hot at the moment, and see which will fit into my already fairly-established tastes, so I know staples/pieces it's time to replace or replenish.

Aside from everything you put up there, I'm a huge fan of ads and fashion photography. So I spend most of my time looking at the pictures.

Me too! That's actually why I even started reading magazines like Vogue and Elle. Clearly it wasn't because my size 16 butt was going to fit into anything they're peddling!

I feel that reading specific magazines have elevated my awareness of quality in products. Vogue/Elle/etc have really made me take a hard look at the clothing I am buying in terms of how long it will last/how long it will fit into my closet/how well it will fit in my closet/etc. Allure has really taught me the quality beauty products and shown me some great cheaper alternatives (i.e. Cetaphil!).
