Magazine of the Month: Allure

I've always been a huge fan of Allure. I remember when I was about 7 or 8 years old and I was going on my first plane trip alone. I was going to meet my grandma in Arizona for the first time! I had forgotten my book bag full of activities to keep me occupied on the way over there! I was devastated. Well, as devastated as a small child could be. My dad took me to one of those little stores in the airport that has magazines and what not, and told me to pick out a few things. The first thing I picked up was Allure. 

The shiny cover, the copious amounts of makeup, and the beautiful people that graced each and every page. I needed it. I read and re-read the magazine over and over again during my 9 hour trip! (Had a long delay in Texas...) My grandma didn't have any televisions. So every night, I would read my Allure again. I'm pretty sure this is when my love of beauty and makeup happened. A lot of people have told me that I have an obsession with makeup. Maybe I do. But tell me, what's so wrong with wanting to find the best and most beautiful products out there? 

With my extensive back story being said, my favorite magazine of January 2013 was Allure. 

splurge, save, fashion, style, skinny jeans, pumps, fashion tips, save money, money saving tips, style tips, makeup, beauty, beauty tips, beauty review, makeup tips, makeup review, nail polish, sephora, essie, sinful colors, ulta, orly, butter london, how to wear, how to, how to style, how to fashion

Drew Barrymore looks absolutely stunning on the cover!  

Besides Drew, the one thing that really grabbed my attention was the letter from the editor, Linda Wells. She talked about makeovers, which seems fitting for the new year, but it was more than that. Allure was doing makeovers for "disadvantaged young men and women." A makeover can be life changing. And what Allure did for these people was absolutely wonderful. (I teared up a little bit...)

Other bits that I loved: 
1. Blush bags: The 3.1 Phillip Lim was my favorite!
2. How to Look Good When You Feel Bad: Perfect article for anyone feeling sick! (or hungover...)
3. Gluten-Free: Very informative article! A good read for anyone looking to go gluten free, or like me and have to go gluten free. 
4. Drew Barrymore: I love her. I died over this entire article. 

Have you read January's edition of Allure?
