Take A Break
Advantages: good tips and crosswords
I like a lot of people like to buy magazines, and I just love the women's ones so I keep up to date with a lot of things, make up etc and those girlie tips the magazines have in them on those special pages.
This one is a very good one I buy each week, I love the crosswords and find they stimulate my mind and keep it active, it has lots of articles such as personal pages where people send in their own stories for people to see and sometimes relate to, sometimes these are very sad and other times they are quite funny, they have, little competitions which some of them are quite quick to do but I have rarely entered them as I never win anything normally but some people win all the time but as the saying goes you have to be in it to win it but not in my case.
Some pages are dedicated to showing you how to make better use of an item you may have at home and give tips on where to go for a particular item such as a car boot sale etc.
There are pages on beauty tips, and a kind of agony aunt page for if you want to ask a question about something that you need advice on and they answer the best they can, they even have a Doctors advice page too, which can be helpful if you are suffering from something similar to the person who is asking the question.
I like the beauty page I find it has lots of tips I did not know, this page gives where the product can be bought from if needed. I has a good section on hair as well as beauty.
There is a section for horoscopes if you are into that kind of thing,
At the last page it gives all the answers to previous quizzes etc so if you cannot think what the answer was at the time, you can check here.
It is excellent value for 80p for around 62 pages from any supermarket, newsagents or even petrol stations. Each week there is a issue number and so if you forget which week you are up to it is easy to work out which one to buy for that week. I think issue 1 begins in January but I am not absolutely certain on this start month.
They are good to buy for yourself or someone who you are visiting at the hospital and it will entertain they while being a little bit bored.
For the amount of pages and read in this magazine it is a must to try and I recommend anyone to give it a go if they already do not buy it.
I give it 5 stars.
Summary: good value for a good read
