I used to love Cosmopolitan magazine, I've been buying Cosmo every month starting June 2004 and stopped buying them early part of last year. I just grew tired of their topics, it's sooo obvious they're recycling articles (and topics). Different pics, same text (not verbatim thank goodness). I started buying Yes! Magazine after, simply because I'm a jologs and love local showbiz issues haha. I also love to read about the houses featured in the mags, wishing I could have my own house as pretty as theirs.
And then I've heard about Stella magazine last year but ignored it whenever I see it on the magazine stand. I remember seeing Angel Locsin in the cover, but since I'm not a fan (I don't hate her though), I didn't buy it. But when their December issue featured Anne Curtis as the cover girl, I grabbed one! She's just so pretty here, she's my local version of Julia Roberts =)
I love the style of their cover, matte finish with embossed letters (the pink ones in Anne's coverpage). I love this finish more than the glossy ones. It's classier.
More than the cover page, I love what's inside. No relationship talks, no sex tips, and no boring stuff. It's all about makeup and fashion which I am currently crazy about especially the first one.
Peek through the pages of Stella Magazines (Jan-Feb issue) here:
My 2 copies so far:
Wish they're on a monthly basis though!
