The Simple Things

Sep 01 2022
Magazine

The Simple Things is a beautiful, useful, quirky and fun magazine about taking time to live well. We cover mindfulness and microadventures, eating and growing, forgotten wisdom, home life and slow moments. It's for people who love their lives but want to take the pressure off and remember what’s really important. We like tea & cake, learning stuff, being outside and the satisfaction of a job well done. Do you?

CAKE IN THE HOUSE • The tartness from the apple, warmth from the cinnamon and slight crunch of polenta makes this an excellent any-time-of-day cake.

My day in cups of tea • We asked art bookseller Karen Jakobsen about her day in cuppas, and whether having a bookshop at a garden centre really is the dream job that it sounds…

September Almanac • SEASONAL THOUGHTS TO HELP YOU ENJOY THE MONTH

“Guilt is not a very useful emotion, it’s better to think, ‘what can I do today?’ Celebrate what you can do and don’t dwell on what you can’t” • Best-selling cookbook author Anna Jones wants them to become sticky-paged kitchen bibles and believes gentle guidance is the way to a people- and planet-friendly way of eating
