---Why I Bought This---
I enjoy magazines (well some) but now seldom get out or have any bought - so when I had a chance of a subscription and of getting three issues for £1 I thought I would give this one a go - working out at 33p each for me it had to worth having.
Vogue is a fashion and lifestyle magazine that is published monthly Condé Nast.
Founded in 1892 in the USA. The British edition has been published since 1916.
A large heavy glossy magazine.
Lots of colourful adverts.
Approximately 340 good quality pages.
4 perfumed pages.
£4.10 per month.
Well I was really pleased to get my magazine delivered. It was very heavy and promised a lovely time of browsing.
I was really pleased with the perfume pages - one was perfumed down the side, another had a sample of perfumed card in an envelope and the other two had foiled sample sections - the Linda McCartney L.I.L.Y was especially nice, although searching online I then saw how expensive it was!
The magazine was interesting to flick through - seeing lots of expensive adverts, though many are done in such an 'arty' way that there seems more effort put into the photo shot rather than showing the actual article being advertised - or perhaps I am just out of touch.
Lots of well known brands had their adverts: Ralph Lauren, Prada, Dior, Gucci etc.
I enjoy looking at fashions and make-up, even if I cannot afford then, but I would not say I was very keen on the way everything was presented.
There was little that I wished to read - well very little to read at all really. There was a few pages towards the back written about Boris Johnson, which I did read, as I find him quite amusing, but other than that there was nothing.
I will enjoy flicking through my next two issues when they arrive, and also being able to sample new perfumes, but overall it is not something I would particularly want to buy, even it was cheaper than its current price.
Maybe this is just me, I can never seem to find an enjoyable magazine, and the ones that I do seem to like are way too expensive - but this is not one of them.
2 Stars - good quality paper and printing and a lot of it - but not my cup of tea..
---Would I Recommend?---
No not really - and I do not think it is something my circle of friends would appreciate either.
Summary: Good quality magazine but a bit boring for me.
