Magazine Weekend – Allure October ’09

PhotobucketHappy Halloween everyone! I don’t know how many of you partake in the festivities, but I take it as a day to be extra fun. Plus with all negative thoughts aside (poison etc.) I think kids need a day or two like this where they can get dressed up and get free candy. The adults? They need a day to think back to the days of childhood past and take those ties off and relax. I don’t know how Halloween turned into a competition for the shortest skirt, but that’s what makes the day more fun, no? Finding the most creative costume that didn’t use a “lack of fabric” as the first step! In the past, I’ve had a theme going, where I was Betty Boop one year and Betty Rubble (Flinstones) the next. I had a couple of Bettys in mind for this year as well, but I don’t think I’ll be dressing up. Next year watch out!

As you guys await November 1 for the sale candy (that’s the best part of the day for me!), take a look through the magazine counters and check for Allure for October 09. It has Miss Vanessa Hudgens on the cover, looking a lot like MiMi (a.k.a Mariah Carey. The magazine is always well known for having an index card pullout with tons of tips. Sometimes fitness, sometimes beauty. These pullout cards have the directions on one side and product suggestions on the other. They serve as great bookmarks, and when you’re done with the magazine, you can hide the card in your bag or wallet, and head to the (drug)store to do some damage!

This month they had a chock full of advice from how to do successful blow outs at home to grooming your brows. Instead of just one page of full tear outs, you get a full three pages!


Do you do this to groom your brows? Does it work? Success/Horror stories? Share all!

Shoot me an e-mail to if you would like me to explore other/have topics and/or magazines, or for general opinions of what’s in magazine weekend.

  1. Nah. I use a brow stencil kit or go to a threading salon to get it shaped then I just maintain.

    You should check out Harper's Beauty features, they've got some great catwalk tips and interesting tidbits.

    Oh, I loved your Style Watch writeup so much I went out and got the mag. Totes agree with you!
