First" is one of those magazines you typically find somewhere near the front of the store, to pique your interest, while you wait in line. I'm one of those people who tends to impulsively throw a copy of something into my basket, for lack of something better to do, which is why I got started reading "First, " which is a magazine geared towards women. Nothing earth-shattering in the content, but it is a pleasant enough publication that has beauty and style tips, diet and nutrition information, health info and, of course, loads of recipes. "First" offers advice about finances, relationships, parenting and homemaking, as well. While not an introspective read, it's, nonetheless, very relaxing and uncomplicated, which is something I crave after a particularly stressful day. I appreciate the fact that it isn't laden down with too many advertisements. To my husband's supreme irritation, I hold on to old issues of "First, " because they look good on the coffee table and because I like to go back and re-read them from time-to-time. $2.49 is not a bad price to pay for it.
