This review is from: Glamour (1-year) (Magazine)
After I bought Glamour off the news stand, I read it and completely loved it. The previous reviews were a little bit out of date here on Amazon, and in my opinion, a magazine can transform dramatically in a year, if not less. There's definitely a lot less fluff and a lot of wonderful articles in 2005. For example, there were articles about the emotional hardships with a mom whose kid is mentally ill and the story of up coming star as a happily adopted child. There were articles on women who struggled so that girls today can play in Little League, women can get credit cards and keep their job when they get pregnant. There's a lot of important and powerful article on women's rights with a dose of celebrity life. My favorite article was Aisha Tyler showing us how much digital touchup can do to cover models....it definitely made me feel a lot better about my body.
I felt like Glamour had enough dosage with fashion, health news, beauty tips, and celebrity life, but still did a great job to remind us the greatness of being a woman. I gave it 4 stars due to the fact that I had flip through 6 pages of ads before I got to the table on contents. I suppose that's how magazines make their money, but I can do without. Other than that, great mag! If every issues is like the one I read, I'd subscribe to it in a heart beat.
