Wondering What To Do With All Your Old Magazines?

If you're anything like me, then you most likely have piles and piles of old (sometimes unread) fashion magazines laying around. Day by day they continue to sit in your apartment gathering dust, but you can't get yourself to throw them out. Of course you can't. Because you know, deep down (despite the fact that you look like a person on his/her way to an episode of Hoarders) that someday you are going to use those magazines. For what, you don't know. But oh, you will. The day will come. Or at least that's what you keep telling yourself. But it never really happens. Things get in the way. There's Netflix and sleeping in on the weekends and going to Chipotle and a million other super important things that simply take precedence over cutting out inspirational quotes and images from your favorite fashion magazines to paste up on the wall. But maybe we just haven't had enough direction, you know? Maybe we just need a little inspiration to create something magnificent out of all those hoarded magazines.
