Reading Roundup Glamour Magazine
As an editor and Young Professional I know the importance of keeping up with competing publications. The staff of Your Monthly Periodical can’t cover every topic on our own which is why I will be presenting you with highlights from other ladies’ magazines. I want my readers to be well rounded. Here for your enlightenment: Glamour February 2012:
- What does your man’s taste in music say about him? If he’s a Justin Bieber fan: Glamour says “He is immature but might surprise you” Sheeny says: No man likes Justin Bieber and if he does there is a whole lot of wrong going on. Dump him. Fun Fact: The Biebs suffers from bacne.
-”Weird Love Advice That Works” (pg. 99) The highlight for me was this little gem:
“Using a water gun instead of arguing over minor frustrations – like when someone puts the empty milk carton back in the fridge – keeps them from turning into major fights…’It’s fun!’ Mandel explains. ‘And it breaks up the negative energy, because you can’t laugh and be angry at the same time.’”
Oh really, Debbie Mandel, holder of the ambiguous title ‘Specialist’? I am quite certain I have laughed and been filled with rage at the same time. Most notably when someone hits me or yells at me. Love/Hate. Anger/Laughter. It’s a thing. I have also been on the receiving end of a spray bottle and let me tell you it produces a lot more irritation than amusement. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t particularly enjoy having my shirt and face doused with chilly water while I’m minding my own business reading a fine periodical such as Glamour.
-”Seven Sexy Nights” Want. Her. Hair.
-”Revenge Is…Beautiful” And her hair.
- I owe Jake an apology. I said he was a fake dude who’s been dispensing advice for 20 plus years. Jake is a fake dude who has been dispensing advice since 1956. I feel kind of impressed now. But to all the ‘men’ who have used the pseudonym: Your advice sucks. Except for 1960 Jake who said ‘you are 20 times more intriguing if you cook”
