Happy Birthday, _______ magazine!
These past few weeks, it seems like everywhere we turn, there’s a women’s glossie celebrating an anniversary. Vogue just blew out the candles on their 5th birthday, while Elle is celebrating their 22nd anniversary, and Harper’s Bazaar is turning 24. But what does all that that mean? Well, it means the editors have really made it worth your while to buy a copy. We’re talking double issues and nifty gifts like bags, make up samples, and posters. (We love free gifts, don’t you?)
September Vogue for instance, came prepackaged with one of four canvas bag designs. But if you missed out on that, not to fret. Head over to your neighborhood newsstand to buy Vogue’s The Best of 5 Special Anniversary edition. It is super duper-sized and includes all the best highlights of Chinese Vogue’s 5 year history.
