I have a confession to make. I love Company magazine. In my list of “magazines to work for” in this fantasy I have where I live in London with my cat and houseplants just like a fancier, more put-together Bridget Jones, Company is in the top five. Along with Glamour, Vogue, eh, Teen Vogue* and More! because it seems pervy and as if there would be a lot of men hanging around with their tops off.

Well thank God Alexa Chung came along there and broke that awkward silence. Among the many things I love about Company are its layout, which is always really eye-catching and modern, and riffs off website layouts in a way that, I think, few magazines are doing; its focus on affordable, high-street trends and items; and the way each magazine really seems packed to the rafters with bits ‘n’ bobs to keep me entertained. (Conversely, what I dislike is its rape culture focus – if I could live the rest of my life without coming across an article telling me not to walk around with headphones in lest I get brutally raped and murdered, I would be so happy.)

Which magazines do you buy regularly, and which do you like? (Because these two answers, as any good Daily Mail reader will know, are not the same.)

* Yes, I know Teen Vogue is based in the States; in this fantasy, things shift slightly to living in the sun with my houseplants and cat. And, you know, cycling everywhere.
