      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A magazine that needs to get its act together

      The website: I have no real complaints about the website. It is quick to load, colourful, and easy to navigate. The content is always interesting - involving the readers where possible - and the competitions are always for great prizes and easy to enter.

      The magazine:More magazine is a weekly glossy magazine aimed at the late teens to the early thirties. I have been reading this magazine for many years now and have seen it go through many changes - some advantageous, others not so much.

      More magazine currently retails at £1.50 and is available from most newsagents, supermarkets and chain book shops such as W H Smith. For the price, the magazine is pretty thin, and I find myself wishing for the 8op issue or coupon they release on a regular basis.

      The magazine has plenty of key features such as the big celebrity interview, the fashion pages, Alan Carr's interviews, Man Facts, Position of the Week and Men Overheard, however, the real life features that were once the epitome of the brand have all but disappeared. On a lucky week, you may find one. For a magazine that used to be the best glossy for real life, this is a shame.

      More! magazine have recently had an overhaul, but it seems they still aren't listening to their readers. I am a member of their Facebook page, and I regularly see readers complaining about the cover star, the features or the fashion. For a magazine to succeed, they need to take into account what their readership has to say.

      Features that are worth taking a look at are Man Facts, Position of the Week and Men Overheard - however, the magazine could do with extending these features more, perhaps to a double page spread for each, as these seem to be the most popular features within the magazine.

      The cover star is a very hard issue to address. Obviously, the magazine needs to use a celebrity who is in the public eye at that particular moment, however they seem to be reusing the same cover stars and the same stories over and over again. Repeat offenders include Rihanna, Katy Perry, Cheryl Cole and Frankie Sandford. Katy Perry's covers always bear a line about her marriage, but a few issues back, she was saying that she won't be talking about her marriage anymore - then does. So is she running out of things to say, or are More! making it up?

      I know plenty of the readers who I speak to on the Facebook page would like other people to grace the front cover such as Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine for example. Yet they never appear - this seems to show that they do not care what their readers want, they just want to sell, sell, sell.

      Another gripe is the amount of fashion within the magazine, and the prices. Everyone likes to see a couple of pages of fashion, but when half of the magazine is taken up by it, then this keen interest starts to wane. Add to this the fact that the fashion is stated as affordable at £100 for a scarf, and you have a big problem on your hands.

      Overall, I still like the magazine, as it has some great features which would be a shame to see go, however, if the magazine doesn't start listening to its readers and giving them what they want, they may be forced into obscurity.

      I honestly do not want to see this happen.

        www.moremagazine.co.uk is a website that you can go to, to get daily celebrity news, sex tips, fashion, beauty, chat and a whole lot more.
        It is like an online magazine, that I like to click onto every now and again for a quick read, so it is sort of like a free magazine.
        I have read more magazine a few times and personally I think that this website is just as good, if not better because it is free!

        The website is definitely aimed at females. You can see this from the moment you get onto the website, as the background is light pink and it is all very pink and girly. I would say it is aimed at females aged 16 - 30 but that's just from my point of view.

        The website is really easy to navigate. You can easily see how to get from page to page, there is a list of the pages down the left hand side of the home page. The pages are things like shopping, holidays, single men, celebrity and competitions.
        The site is a good place to click onto if you're feeling bored, or if you just fancy reading about some pointless celebrity gossip, but can't get out to the shops for whatever reason to buy the magazine.
        It isn't the best magazine website in the world, but it's not the worst either. I recommend :)

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Men Overheard...read it!

        More is a rare glossy magazine that tends to focus upon the fashion side of the celebrity world rather than featuring gossip stories about their personal lives. It is bursting with cheap clothes along with the new releases in store for the various seasons. It doesn't focus too much upon the scandals within the celebrity world, instead trying to portray a more rounded and fashion centred magazine.

        The magazine always gets a massive interview with a quite famous celebrity, whom is usually featured on the front cover so they focus upon the actual celebrities instead of just gossiping about them like most other glossy magazines.

        The front cover features the celebrity being interviewed, as mentioned above, as well as a big side of fashion down the side near the spine of the magazine. This part usually shows a certain number of outfits that can be afforded by the everyday woman as they focus upon the cheaper, more affordable versions of clothing rather than packing it full of designer labels straight from the catwalk. Again you have the obligatory weight and body part featured on the front of the magazine, offering to teach you how to get the perfect bikini body as well as how the celebrity does it.

        More is another magazine that is slightly different to normal magazines as they also feature a section dedicated to real life stories submitted by the public. I personally think these don't tend to be as shocking as the ones featured elsewhere in other glossy publications but they are interesting to read nonetheless. I feel you can relate better to the stories in More as they are based around cheating and pregnancy and drinking, rather than being a bit more shocking.

        I like that they tend to have good offers on the price of the magazine, occasionally you can pick it up for about 80p and within the magazine they usually offer it the week after for the same price with a cut out voucher. This makes me more likely to buy it in the future as I know that it isn't a one off deal, as the magazine can be quite expensive without these deals.

        My favourite part of the entire magazine has to be the last page, Men Overheard. I have never read as many funny things on one page before and some of the things that these men say are hilarious! It is an original page and I like it for the comedic ending it gives More as it can make me laugh out loud. I sit with my friends and read them out while we all collapse in fits of giggles, perfect night in!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good magazine with nice features on the latest trends in fashion and beauty

        This is my new favourite magazine, I usually just buy whatever has an interesting cover, but after a few months I usually find that the most interesting cover belongs to this magazine!

        Interesting to me, means good unbiased fashion news (ie. a magazine that doesn't just include the expensive high street/designer stores) the latest trends in fashion and beauty, celebrity interviews and entertaining lifestyle stories.

        This magazine has a bit of everything but it does it well, even my boyfriend will read this magazine so I guess it isn't just for women (even if it that's clearly who it's aimed at) he enjoys the statistics and "men overheard" pages especially, they are quite amusing I must admit. :D

        The magazine features good quality images and opinions, as I said their fashion features include many stores which include some of the cheaper stores like Primark and even online stores like Boohoo.com etc.

        The magazine is decently priced too, at around £1.50 which isn't too bad compared to some of the £3-£4 magazines which don't even really have as interesting content. It is also quite frequently on offer for around £1 which makes it a great bargain!

        So for those who like a light glossy magazine about fashion and beauty especially, but with a dash of celebrity gossip which isn't too serious, I think you will enjoy this weekly magazine. :)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good buy

          ~*~ More Magazine ~*~

          I'm usually a loyal 'Glamour' girl. However, Diet Coke's recent magazine promotion has tempted me into trying some of it's competitors, so I thought what better a time to share my experiences!


          ~*~ The Coke Promotion ~*~

          First things first, as I failed to mention on the review on Heat, let's get down to how you can bag yourself a free copy of More. All you have to do is buy a bottle of Diet Coke (the 2l size), or a 6, 10, 12 or 15 pack of cans. Then, enter the code that you find on the pack on Coke Zone (www.cokezone.co.uk), choose your magazine and print out the voucher and take it to any participating retailer (pretty much anywhere).

          The magazines you can choose from are Grazia, More, Closer and Heat, so a good selection there!

          The promotion is really good, considering some of the magazines retail for just under £2. A bottle of Diet Coke is currently £1.66 in Tesco, or £2.60 for 2 bottles, so if you do drink Diet Coke anyway here's your chance to stock up and get something for nothing!

          The promotion is really easy to enter, if it was too complicated I wouldn't bother, trust me, but this really is one of the offers out there that you can benefit from, so make the most of it!


          ~*~ Anyway.... ~*~

          Ok so I've got a bit sidetracked there so let's get on to the magazine. More is a womens weekly fashion / gossip magazine. It retails for £1.50 which is about average for this type of magazine.


          ~*~ The content ~*~

          This weeks edition (8th March) has a front cover of '50 sexy heels under £30' taking up half the page, and a picture of Kelly Osborne on the other half. The shoes drew me in as I'm a bit of a fashion fiend, but when I looked more closely I wasn't too impressed with the ones featured on the front cover. Oh well.

          The first double page spread you see on opening this magazine is the 'men of the week' which is a nice way to start! They include Johnny Depp amonst some other newcomers. Nice.

          Next up is 'the week in style'. This section details some of the latest trends, such as knots, which are apparently going to be huge this season, and good finds such as a £16 dress in Matalan. Following this is an article on underwear as outerwear, and whether it should be done or not. I still can't decide after reading the article, but I don't think I'll risk it just yet... Then there's a bit on celebrity fashion and few pages on hair and make up. One of my favourite parts of this magazine is the 'Look who bought!' section. In this part, the magazine grabs girls off the high street who have made purchases and gets them to try on their new clothes for the mag. It's a nice little feature, I like being a bit nosey into peoples lives!

          After the fashion section comes the Kelly article which talks about her losing weight, gaining love and so on. Standard celebrity gossip, followed by more stories on similar things, including, of course, one on Cheryl Cole.

          Next comes an advertising feature on Boohoo.com, which is done very well so that it doesn't really seem like an advertisement - well done to them!

          After this is an article on Olly and Stacey from the X-factor - its an interview, quite interesting, worth a read I guess.

          Next! Man Facts, with things such as '59% of men get jealous when their girlfriend goes on a girls night out'. Useful information there! Followed by an article on a real life sex addict and his problems he has had with the condition.

          The next article is on how to get over a break up, with do's and don'ts which are very handy - e.g. 'DON'T BINGE SHOP!' - Been there, done that! Following is an article on couples and what makes them jealous, with real life couples interviewed. I really liked this feature as well.

          After a few more similar articles comes the fashion section, with affordable fashion options. I loved this section and was very pleased to find a magazine showing good fashionable pieces that are actually in my price range - Primark rather than Prada!

          Hair and make up sections follow, then a couple of problem pages, letters, horoscopes, and on the final page - men overheard. Snippets of conversation that have been overheard during the week, e.g. "How come I eat loads of junk food but never get fat? Oh my god, do you think I'm anorexic? I think it's a really nice way to end the read with something light hearted, fun and yet still interesting.


          ~*~ The verdict ~*~

          I have been extremely impressed with More magazine. I don't think I've ever really thought to purchase it before, being more of a glossy magazine snob, but I will definitely be considering it in the future.

          I like the fact that the magazine is light hearted but still contains some interesting articles, and has affordable fashion. Unlike Heat, half the magazine isn't taken up with TV pages, and it has barely any advertisement pages unlike Cosmo and Glamour.


          ~*~ Buy it if... ~*~

          You like Glamour and Cosmopolitan but can't afford their fashion, or have already read this months issue!


          ~*~ You probably wont like it if... ~*~

          You're more of a Take a Break or Chat type of girl that skips past the fashion pages - there won't be much else left for you to read!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great mag for the fashion concious lady

          I found this magazine on a desk at work that someone had left behind so I thought I would have a read. I was obsessed with this magazine when I was about 15 and I don't think the idea behind it has changed that much since. The cover had a picture of Fearne Cotton on it (Jan 2010 issue) and was very brightly coloured. There were lots of pictures of clothes on the front and it was on special offer for £1 (usual price £1.50).

          There are 106 pages in the magazine that I read and that consisted of 14 pages of adverts (not too bad, I thought) and 53 pages of fashion and beauty which doesn't really appeal to me but hey, I didn;t buy the magazine. I do have to say that some of the clothes in the magazine were laughable (the feather skirt gave me much enjoyment). I did find some of the beauty tips useful though such as how to stop your nail varnish chipping.

          I had a quick flick through the gossip and celebrities sections and the man facts made me laugh. Who would have thought that 37% of men own their own pair of hair straighteners??!! I also really enjoyed the man overheard special and awards. I did the "what's your arguement style" quiz and was told I am dramatic and that I can't be rational during an arguement which is true!! The problem pages gave informative advice.

          I think the magazine is aimed at older teens and people in their early 20s who are fashion concious. I would not recommend it to younger people due to the sex position of the week in each magazine (this was always my fav part when I was younger as it made me think you had to be double jointed all over for some of them). Overall is was a different read for 30 mins and compared to other girly magazines, it was cheap and I secretly quite enjoyed it (shhh don't tell anyone). I don;t think I would but it but would read it again if I found it lying around. I will be hunting the office tomorrow.

          Disadvantages

          A good magazine I recommend to all

          I love magazines, and more magazine is one of my more regular reads and buys.

          It is a weekly magazine, usually costing £1.80 but many a time it is on offer for £1, or sometimes even 80p, making it even more of a great magazine than it already is.

          More magazine is usually filled to the brim with Fashion items, celebrity gossip, problem pages, real life stories, and random little regular items. My favorite parts are Man Facts and Men Overheard.

          Man facts are just that, random little facts and percentages about men and what they do. An example would be something like 65% of men think texting on a dinner date is wrong. Men overheard is a section of the magazine where women send in silly and funny things that men have said, whether it be their boyfriend, friends, or just some random man on the bus. My favorite quote of all time from this section is Girl: I had to have my cervical cancer jab today, Guy: Why don't I get one, thats truly unfair! Girl: Hun, you don't have a cervix, Guy: When did I lose it?

          There is also sections in the magazine like "what I bought" and "position of the week".
          What I bought is where More Magazine go to a shopping centre and stop shoppers to see what they bought by making them put it on and having their picture taken to put in the magazine. They go to a different shopping centre each week, and they may soon be in a shopping centre near you.
          Position of the week is the weekly sex section, where dolls are used to show you a new sex position to try with your man each week, and there are usually comments from couples who have tried the last weeks position and emailed in to the magazine. If you get your comment printed, you get £50.

          The magazine also has a website, www.moremagazine.co.uk which is full of great stuff for those who can't wait a whole week for the next magazine.
          I think this magazine is a great read that is totally worth the price you pay, so go out and grab one now, you won't be disappointed, I promise.

          Review also found on ciao.co.uk under the name of Hailz1986.

          fab mag for women aged around 18-30

          More magazine in a weekly womens mag that costs about £1.80 - though recently they have had trial prices of about 80p upwards. The mag is aimed at women between (I would say) the ages of 18 and 30. Although saying that I'm sure I started reading it when i was younger than that... just don't tell my mum lol. The feel of the mag is up to date, new, fresh and all with a sense of humour.

          There are interviews with the most current celebs by Alan Carr which are hilarious. Very real, relaxed interviews that get me giggling every week.

          There are also real life stories which are usually informative, inspiring or empowering.

          Men overheard is a part where people write in with pant-wettingly funny things that they have 'overheard' men say. usually rather stupid!

          There is of course a section for horoscopes, along with celeb gossip, beauty, fashion, position of the week and tips on how to deal with blokes lol oh and the usual agony aunt bit too.

          I can honestly say this is my favourite magazine. It used to come out every two weeks so i was thrilled when they started bringing them out weekly!

          subscription for Xmas please!!

          Disadvantages

          great price great magazine!

          More normally costs £1.40 which I think is a reasonable price and it is good value for money because the content of the magazine is great. More comes out every weeks and has plenty of interviews, fashion and real life stories aswell as plenty of other stuff too. I would say that the target audience for this magazine is ages 20-35.... women of course!.. however i often catch my boyfriend flicking through when he thinks I'm not looking!

          Moren normally has a famous celebrity on the front cover and more often than not they have an interview in the magazine which are generally very well done and ask in depth questions for all of us that love gossip.

          The fashion in more is great because it is realistic... it does not show anything that costs thousands and pounds... or if does it shows a high street alternative for a fraction of the price and it looks just as good. Primark and new look are often featured in this magazine which I like because it means I can afford the clothes! There is also a two page spread of a photographer in a shopping center that has asked women as they leave highstreet stores with new purchases to be pictured in them so that readers can see whats hot and whats not. River island, topshop, new look and Primarni (primark) are among the most commonly featured in more.

          There is always hair care and make up advice... which i particularly like as it has many pages detailing exactly how to achieve certain hair styles and looks... my favourite being the smokey eye look :)

          More often has lots of men in it! Whether its interviews with men or just pictures of half naked men for us to look at!

          Celebrities are heavily featured in this magazine... showing whats in fashion and also whos dating who.

          More normally has a couple of real life stories in which can be good and often shocking but its based mainly on fashion, celebrities and beauty.

          It also has magazine letters, agony aunt pages, competitions and horoscopes.

          Great price...great magazine!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Cheap for what it is!

          Every Friday afternoon at about 3pm I literally run to the gym. Not just because I enjoy it (I do actually for the most of the time lol) but I don't know why but one of the male members always brings about 30 copies of More with him which are free for you to take home (if you get in there fast enough). Like I say I don't know why he does it or where he gets them but every week there they are and me...well I love to park mine on the cross trainer for half an hour and whittle my time away with a glossy!

          The Magazine:

          Well out of all the glossy magazines on the market this happens to be one of my firm favourites. Out every week it always has interesting celebrity interviews and a great mix of other stuff going on it in and I feel this is aimed at mid 20's to late 30's women!

          Contents:

          Of course they vary but with More, week after week it is pretty much all the same sort of format and very nicely laid out. That isn't a gripe or complaint with More you know what your getting and if you pick up one issue and have a good old nosey through it and like it then the chances are you will enjoy all future issues.

          The front cover always in big bold lettering tells you what the magazine is and the price which is currently £1.40. Obviously the cover is different as are the contents week by week but usually it's a celebrity adorning the cover (this week it's the fabulous Lady Gaga!) and then there a quick run down of some of whats on offer in the magazine which usually offers best buys and fashion advice to grab your attention lol. Open it up and the editor (Lisa Smosarski) gives her take on the week and there is a content list that is very comprehensive.

          So where do I start?

          Adverts: This I appreciate about this magazine greatly. I'm not made of money but I am fashion conscious and I do like the latest looks and to keep myself up to date. With this magazine the things advertised is stuff like Adidas, Rimmel, 02 and somewhat achievable things to own. One advert in this magazine is for a boohoo.com shows a gorgeous dress for 25 quid! It's all about grabbing looks for reasonable prices this magazine so I'm on the treadmill burning off half a ton lard and trying to mould my lard ass into buns of steel thinking 25 quid? I'm having that lol. It just makes a nice change in these financially struggling times to know stuff is achievable to get I think! What's more the mag doesn't dedicate too much space to adverts and tends to advertise products within articles...read on lol.

          Fashion:

          Again nothing shown is mega expensive. In all of the weekly editions fashion really does play a huge role. There is always a bargain section where the team tell us what is hot and whats not and where to get so and so in. A top from Primark for £12.00 is big news, a belt from Asda for £4.00 is a must have that type of thing. Celebs are photographed in whats hot and not and sometimes advice on how to pinch a look is given and what's coming up on the fashion front we should all be investing in (at the moment it's animal faces on t shirts), again the tops shown range from £10.00 to the most expensive one being £25.00 and are from accessible shops such as Dorothy Perkins, Matalan, Top Shop and River Island. Another weekly feature is the magazine parks itself up with a photographer outside a shop with a tippee and waits for women to come out with their shopping bags. They ask them to change into what they've just bought and they get photographed before and after and asked a couple of questions about why they chose what they purchased. This again takes place at the likes of outside Primark, New Look and River Island. There is also an editors choice of buy of the week. I've noticed Asos feature highly here and although I've never visited their website it has to be said some of the stuff is lovely!

          There is always themed pieces of what we should buying as well (this week its nautical pieces) and articles on how to create a look for under 30 quid! There are further articles and fashion advice in this magazine on where to buy the perfect bright jacket, slogan tops (these are must haves apparently), where to find the best lace up shoes and long sleeve dresses oh and tailored trousers (yep you guessed it again these are must haves lol), high street beauty buys get rated, make up advice and haircare is usually given so you get the picture lots of info on fashion!

          Men:

          Sex position of the week, how to catch and keep a man, how to propose, problem pages and sexual advice are all in here (contents vary lol). Real life stories, stories about male celebrities (usually wearing very little but a smile) it's chocka block full of information about men, by men and women who love men lol.

          Celebs:

          Who's boffing who, who is hot, who is not, who's wearing what. Usually there is a couple of celebrity interviews and again what I appreciate with more is that it isn't full of boring old z listers! I like the well laid interviews and photographs and the way that you get the feeling that the interviews were fun and light hearted and it's emulated in the photographs. Who's is splitting up who is getting with who and why you know the formula lol.

          Real Life:

          Not too much of this as it's quite a light hearted magazine but from time to time More does give stories that shock. The one in this week is about an attractive woman who was so jealous of her bf's ex she shelled out thousands of pounds to look like her. Sorry but funny thing about it, is the girl was prettier than his ex to begin with and he had upgraded lol. What a waste of looks I say!

          Then there is the usual stars in there, discount vouchers, gift ideas, and magazine letters and stuff like that.

          Verdict:

          A magazine that really does deliver me an affordable fashion fix weekly for a worthy mere price of £1.40 (if I had to buy it lol). I get really down looking in a magazine and seeing something I like and seeing its price tag and thinking I'll never afford that! With this I can. I find the make up advice easy to follow and have even done a couple of the hairstyles! lol.
          What I also appreciate with this magazine is the models used in articles. Out are the ill stick insect skinny minny brigade and in are healthy looking average sized models. Very rarely is there diet and fitness information and a whole heap of focus on weight. For someone like me with an eating disorder I notice these things and appreciate it all not being in my face and the magazine being upbeat!

          I find the celebrity stories up to date and sometimes exclusive and all round it's a jam packed magazine that is fun to read though I will say this.... the stars are never right for me! lol

          Try it!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Great for a quick break but nothing memorable

            I've picked up More magazine a few times, almost always for the train. I love these quick-to-read mags full of variety as you can almost forget about them one you have arrived! They're cheap and cheerful.

            More is more of an age-related magazine, rather than one about a topic. It's aimed at young women and covers all the aspects of like they may be interested in, or that may affect them. It's like one step up from a teen magazine, with funny articles and problem pages, but covering more adult topics.

            The sections are...

            Celebrities- No real exclusives, just gossip and snaps, and lots of celebrity related fashion. There's a feature interview with the celebrity on the front, but it isn't groundbreaking. Some interviews are a little bit long, I prefer the smaller page length features.

            Real life- There are some real life features, such as crazy stories and problem pages. These are a little trashy, nothing political or heavy, just something scandalous!

            Men- This is where the magazine gets a little trashy. There is lots of sex tips and funny things to make fun of guys. Again, nothing thought provoking but funny little tips and tricks and opinions. This magazine is very interactive, there are lots of opinions from people on the street and real life testers, which is good!

            More fashion- All the fashion is very cheap and and cheerful, really accessible and great for new trends. Nothing high fashion, just things for the high street. There are lots of outfits for clubbing too, which is great for new ideas and quick outfit fixes.

            Overall, a magazine aimed at young women who like to socialise and party. Great for a way to waste some time, but nothing memorable or any incentive to keep buying the magazine.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            At least it doesnt break the bank!

            More magazine is one of the cheapest magazines on the shelves, retailing at around £1.40 an issue. It's an A4 glossy magazine aimed at younger women (but not children) and contains fashion, beauty, real life and the usuals such as horoscopes.

            I like more because the price reflects the audience, being the cheaper magazine to select it shows cheap clothes to buy in the fashion parts, for example they might do a section with everything £20 or less, which is fantastic because magazines usually show unaffordable clothes in the fashion sections costing upwards of £100.

            I read this with my mates sometimes and we have a giggle at the last page, which is about what girls have overheard boys saying, always funny things! The other page we like is the regular sex position, they always look impossible!!

            More though is a ten minute magazine, any longer than that flicking through and it gets boring, so I don't personally buy it that often!

            An enjoyable read that is value for money

            More magazine is one of my favourite magazines. I think I am probably getting towards being too old for it, but I do find it an enjoyable read. I do read a lot of magazines and am lucky enough in my line of work to get quite a few for free.

            More is a weekly magazine (used to be fortnightly) and comes out every Tuesday. The price of the magazine does seem to vary but the latest edition I have is £1.40. I find More a bit of a mix between the celebrity gossip magazines and the more glossy titles such as Glamour and Cosmo. I think this mix is why I find it quite an enjoyable read overall. The magazine is probably also between these two types of magazines in terms of the thickness of the magazine as well. I think there is more content than some of the celeb magazines but it is a lot thinner than Cosmo and Glamour. I
            think this may be due to the fact that it has a lot less adverts as well.

            The front of the magazine is attractive and immediately attracts you towards the magazine. It had More! written in big letters at the top in brightly coloured writing. There is also a large picture on the front, this is normally a celebrity. This makes it look quite glamorous as unlike celebrity gossip magazines the celebrity usually looks like they have been made up rather than looking bad. There are usually some short headlines of what the articles inside are about. These are usually a mix of articles, celebrity news and also fashion. There is lots of big writing all over the front and this all co-ordinates so overall the magazine does look very attractive.

            Once inside the magazine there is the usual editor letter and the contents page. This is quite clearly laid out with pictures with page numbers written on them. There are also headlines for some of the other articles. This is split into sections so you can easily find what you are interested in. These sections are: On the cover, celebs, fashion and beauty, men and relationships and every week. This contents page goes over two pages. I think it is very clear but i don't usually find the need to use it as I usually just flick through the magazine.

            As with all magazines there are quite a few adverts throughout the magazine. I don't really find these too irritating though and when you flick through magazines you are used to just flicking past these. The adverts aren't quite as high end as some other magazines so you can see what type of magazine it is.

            The first part of the magazine usually has a lot of celebrity news stories. This includes interviews with celebrities, couples close up on their body language, celebrity news stories and celebrity fashion. there are also a few other non celebrity fashion bits included in this section. A lot of the sections are the same each week. An example is the celebrity couples close up. This article looks up various celebrity couples and what their body language is like towards each other. This article is in each issue of the magazine but just with different celebrities. This using the same style each time does mean that it is easy to go and find the sections that are your favourite easily. Also in the celebrity section they have an interview that Alan Carr does with a celebrity each week. If you don't already know Alan Carr is a comedian that has been on various shows on channel 4 as well as doing his own stand up tour. His interview is usually quite funny to read and a bit different to your usual celebrity interview.

            The next section of the magazine is about men. This has various parts including men facts, why do men article, sex tips and articles about what men get up to. This is usually quite a funny section as is obviously aimed at trying to understand men's minds. I don't think it is really that insightful but can be amusing. The facts can be quite interesting.

            The fashion section has lots of different clothes and accessories for you to look. It tells you where you can get all the items from and for how much so if you see something you fancy buying you can find out where from. What I do like about More magazine is that they have clothes that are within my budget. I read Glamour magazine regularly and there is no way I could afford most of the clothes in there. More seems to cater for people with more of an average budget. There are usually themes with the clothes such as at Christmas party outfits, or in the summer wedding outfits. The clothes are also not outrageous like some magazines so I usually do see things that I would actually be interested in purchasing. Some magazines show clothes that I don't think any normal person would wear.

            The beauty section shows lots of beauty products that you can buy. As with the fashion section these are usually at a reasonable price if you wanted to purchase. They also rate a lot of the products so you can see if they are any good and worth buying or not. They also usually have tips on how to apply make up or fake tan or something similar. These could be quite useful if you were unsure or wanted some new tips. I don't really usually read these sections that much.

            The problem pages in this magazine are quite interesting. I don't know if I am just nosy or what but I do love a problem page. The problems are based around a number of areas including life, blokes, health, body etc. These are all answered by experts in each of the fields. Towards the back along with the problem pages are also the horoscopes and the letters pages. I also really enjoy these pages. I know horoscopes are not true but I can't help but read mine every time I see it. I like the letters page as well , especially as some of the letters are quite funny.

            One of my favourite pages has got to be the last page of the magazine. This is the men overheard page. This has various quotes that women have heard men saying. These can be really funny and we used to all sit and have a good laugh at these when we were at uni. I also seem to find myself noting down quotes when I hear men saying something funny. I know women also do say some pretty stupid things but this page really is funny.

            The magazine is very bright and clear all the way through. It is quite simple and obviously not trying to be really intellectual. This is what I like about it though as it is just an enjoyable and easy read for when you are having some free time to yourself. There are a lot of images and the text isn't too heavy, which again is nice and it doesn't take long to read the magazine.

            The magazine is obviously aimed at people in their late teens and early twenties due to the content. Especially with a lot of articles about relationships and sex tips as well. I have been reading this magazine for quite a few years though, probably since I was still at school. The way it is all bright and easy to read probably makes it attractive to a younger audience than the one they are aiming at. I don't think it is entirely good that young teenagers would read a magazine with sex tips but I think most are mature enough to make their own decisions.

            Overall I think More magazine is a great easy read. It is good value for money and very entertaining.

              A review of MORE magazine

              I first discovered MORE magazine when it was sold with HEAT and since then I've been buying it pretty much every time.

              It is packed with celebrity features, news, interviews, beauty tips, fashion and sex tips. I particularly enjoy and often laugh at their "blokes overheard" features which are full with funny things said by men.

              Another thing that I enjoy about MORE is the fact that there is such a variety of information that could be found on their pages. It is not the same as all the other celebrity gossip magazines currently on sale. Their Lifestyle section is the one that I particularly like to read,

              However, their celeb coverage could be said to be a bit lacking but all the other parts of the magazine makes up fully for that.

              All in all I enjoy reading MORE and believe it got a mixture of thing s likely to make the average reader occupied with reading it.

              Good magazine but it's going downhill

              This is the magazine I buy all the time! However, I am beginning to doubt whether or not I'll keep reading it. I decided to read this one as it was quirky and different. It wasn't all about celebrities and adverts. It had sex tips, real life stories, fashion pages, make up tips, EVERYTHING and it was cheap which is good when it's out every week! But since it got done up a few months ago, it has went downhill. It is not 60% fashion pages and bargains and ads and i skip through this whole part. And it has about 5 pages of celebrity gossip too then an 2 celebrity interviews! It has maybe 3 real life stories and there is one page for "position of the week". I would only buy this magazine if you love fashion and are obsessed with shopping but in my opinion all the good parts of the magazine has been taken out with exception to about 10 pages! I think I'll give up on it and save myself £1.30 a week ...it'll add up haha.
