gotta love a glossy mag

When my two BFFs came a-visiting from Mebourne and Newcastle last week they not only left behind great chats and laughs and a girl who's missing them already, they left behind a bunch of magazines they'd picked up at the airport.
I loooooove browsing through magazines. Add gorgeous people in pretty clothes, or caught in candid shots on beaches, in car parks, hanging out with people they're not meant to be with, and boy oh boy do those expressions give a writer ideas. I found this pic from a recent SABA campaign and a whole book idea sprang from it!

Also, I reckon a bit of celebrity gossip is like sorbet to the mind, clearing everything in it's path leaving room for real thought hot on its heels ;).
