Much More Than A Magazine!

Hi :)

Today I bought the March edition of ELLE magazine and oh my! Its fantastic- filled to bursting! I see it more as a book than a magazine.

I picked up one of the larger, A4 sized copies as I try to do everything possible to get my £3.90 worth. It is packed full of the latest seasons trends, adverts and how to wear key pieces. There are also some great articles about friendship and the work versus life balance. 

However, the highlight of a magazine, for me, is the freebies! Inside, there was a full size Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara worth £10, an exclusive invitation to your nearest Dior beauty counter to receive an eye makeover and a personalised beauty sample, a sample of Rimmel London's new Wake Me Up Foundation, a mini mag of Derhy's Spring-Summer 2012 collection and a fragrance page of Jimmy Choo. 

As you will gather over the coming posts, I am absolutely obsessed with Soap & Glory and I went out to buy ELLE purely because of the free mascara. I also really love how magazines give samples because it allows you to 'try before you buy', and I can't wait to try the Rimmel Foundation and get my Dior eye makeover.

Usually I tend to buy magazines which have more articles, but recently I have came to appreciate how the pictures of styles and trends in the likes of ELLE or Vogue will quickly filter on down to Topshop, H&M and Primark and it's great to spot what's coming into style early, to see which key pieces will be a hit in the coming seasons.

I have only bought ELLE once or twice before, but if every months issue is like this it will definitely become a necessity!
