Red - well worth it

Advantages: Lots of intersting articles that Women want to read about
I have been reading Red magazine since March when it was recommended to me by a friend. She is a bit older than me and already married with children, where as I am not. I thought it would be a bit out of my age range, but I bought it anyway and really enjoyed it. I couldn't put it down.
Each month there is a celebrity interview, and this is not like the normal celeb interview you find, but it is conducted in a relaxed environment and the write up is about 2 or three pages long.
They have resident writers each moth writing about topics that many women can relate to. One writer is Rosie Green, who always refers to her partner as 'Alpha Male'. I particularly liked the article in September's issue entitled 'Real men don't get ill'. At the time of reading I could really relate to this and it made me laugh.
There is also a fashion section, which I often skip over because the clothes are too out of my price range. But they also have their own 'Red Directory' which offers a range of products for Red readers to purchase.
Red prides itself on including real women in the magazine and often has articles from readers whose lives have changed someway. There are also minor celebrities and authors talking about their home lives, or what has inspired them - it changes each month.
Other sections include 'Red Hot' where films, TV shows and books are reviewed, 'Red Beauty' where the hottest beauty products are reviewed and tips are given, and 'Red Living' which includes recipes and home furnishing ideas. There are also sections for travel, property and health.
Overall this magazine includes things that women want to read about and includes issues that are meaningful. I liked it so much that I subscribed to it on a special offer of 12 issues for £12. Normally it costs £3.50 each month. It also comes in two different sizes, a normal one and a travel size one which is perfect to slip into a handbag. When you subscribe you can choose which size you would prefer.
The free gifts are worth it alone. On the first issue I got a book and another book was received in the September issue. I have also got a make up bag and a travel bag. There are also discounts inside for readers and if you subscribe you often get other benefits as well.
This one is well worth the money and a superb read!
