I always put First Magazine in my shopping cart when I buy groceries at Krogers. For a small price of only $2.49 it gives me alot of information along with beauty tips and recipes.
There are over 100 pages of the latest styles, health concerns, home ideas, love and just plain fun! I enjoy the "Smart Solutions" page because it shows me great tips that I can apply to my everyday life. For instance in this month's issue there is a tip on how to keep your regular mascara from smearing. To do this you simply apply one coat of your mascara and then using a Q-tip dipped into loose powder, flick it over your freshly coated eyelashes. A second coat of mascara will cover up the loose powder granules making your mascara smudge proof. Another bonus to this procedure is that you get thicker looking lashes! See...... you learn something from every issue!
Another section of Diet and Fitness always gives me new ideas to use when I work out. It helps you change your body by using certain foods and exercises, without all the hype of diet fads. It's a guide to a healthy and sensible way of losing weight or just firming up.
The recipes in the magazine are awesome and very easy to prepare. The calories along with carbs, fiber, cholesterol, sodium and fats are all listed at the end of each recipe. There are beautiful color photographs along with the instructions. This is helpful and offers me a good way to display the finished recipe on a plate.
On the last page of the magazine is a section called "Last Laugh". You can submit a funny picture to First Magazine and if it is picked to be in a future issue ~ you win $100! There are some really cute stories on that page in "The Things Kids Say" that really make me laugh.
I really love flipping through the pages of First Magazine. Pick one up next time you are at the store and see for yourself!
