Yet again I’ve really enjoyed sitting down for a good read of my Glamour mag this month. I do enjoy other magazines, still, but this is definitely the one for me, the variety of beauty, fashion, celebs and serious articles works a lot better than a lot of other magazines do and it just seems to work (for me anyway).
This month is very focused on their ‘Woman of the year’ awards so there’s various front covers featuring winners from different categories.
There’s, also, some fab freebies, too. They’re all by Model Co. and there’s a khol eyeliner, a lip liner/enhancer pencil, two different shades of lip gloss and a mascara. And to top it all off, this months issue is only £1!!!
I, initially, went and bought one with the peachy coloured lipgloss but, after pondering a while, I went back later on and bought one with the mascara and one with the lip enhancer too.
I did get a bit concerned that buying three was really bad, it seems like such a waste of paper. But I chatted with my mum about it and she reminded me how many magazines just get sent back and, as I used to work at the garage where I bought them, I knew she was right. So I justified it that way. Plus they will go into recycling.
But, freebies aren’t the only thing to look out for in this issue, the articles are really worth a read too. I do, sometimes, feel a little like the writers at the magazine forget that not all of us are high flying, go getting career women… but aside from that the majority of the articles are great to read and often really informative. In this months there’s a really important article discussing the issue of rape. It’s a fantastic article and, although it’s hard to read, I recommend you do – The writer is fantastic in showing the indignation that all of us should feel about the fact that women seem, so often, to get blamed for rape; that the focus is so often placed upon women not ‘doing enough to prevent it’ when, in truth, the only people who can stop it happening is the rapists themselves. It goes into Much more than that but I think it’s an important read because so many people, men and woman alike, discount a lot of rape stories because they assume they’re just ‘crying wolf’ but in there there’s some statistics about that and you may be surprised.
But anyway. To end on a lighter note! Glamour are doing a collaborative beauty box with Latest in Beauty, soon, and seeing as I love Glamour and I love LiB, you can safely assume that you’ll be seeing a write up of the box in the coming days!
There’s some fantastic freebies with mags this month, definitely worth checking them out. I’ve been really tempted but been good and just stuck with Glamour (I say I’ve been good, see aforementioned beauty box references!)
