SPEAKING of Glamour…

glamourOh, we weren’t just talking about glamour? I must have gotten a glimpse of myself in the mirror…


Anyway. My hilarity is not what this post is about. 70 years ago, a year-long subscription to Glamour magazine cost $1.50. To celebrate their 70th anniversary, they’re offering the same price on a 12-month subscription. That’s pretty good. Pretty darn good.

I’m usually not a fan of these types of magazines because they make me feel bad about myself, but I haven’t read Glamour much, so maybe it’s a little smarter than the other women’s publications out there. The worst part about most of those magazines is the sex articles. They lure you in with things like “Blow your guy’s mind tonight!” and then the “crazy” tip that they give you is to drink icewater before kissing him so your lips are cold. Dumb, right? Anyway. I digress. If you’re a fan of Glamour, or if you want to have some extra reading material for the treadmill, click here to get your (practically) free subscription.
