Lose the Gloss – Introduction ish

leave a comment »

Hey there! I read a TON of magazines aimed at women, and I really just skip most of the fashion stuff (Khaki’s in? That’s nice.), but occasionally they have really good articles. OK, more and more often I’ve been seeing really insightful, well-written articles, interviews and reviews that have made me feel less guilty about reading these magazines, and have me looking forward to each new issue more than I was, say, a year ago or so.

So what I intend to do here, one way or another, is to condense all the awesome stuff I read about, make sure to reference it so you can read the original article if you like, and bring it all to you, maybe with some bonus links to more info, or a little of my own commentary.

Currently, I read Marie Claire, Nylon and Glamour, though I get ahold of Cosmos every now and then, and would love to take suggestions for what else I should be reading. But just to give you a little more balanced look at what I read, I also get Scientific American, and read lots of books, about 75% sci-fi and 25% memoirs, etc. I read a lot of blogs, especially feminist ones, and always check my favorite news aggregate, Fark.com, daily for the latest in our weird world.I think it’s important to stay connected to the world around us, take good, helpful action whenever we can, and that sometimes, it only takes one person to make a very large change. If this blog becomes one of the many in your bookmark folder, I’ll be happy.

So, on that note, let’s see what’s in this oh-so shiny January issue of Glamour!
