Awesome Magazine Alert: New You

Oh where has NEW YOU been all my 30's?!?!? 

I just found this guy on the stands while flying back from Denver and it is one of the best reads I've picked up in a long time. It's kind of like SELF meets NEW BEAUTY (but less advertisey and scientific) meets W. All the articles totally spoke to me which made me read through it lightening fast! I really enjoyed the skincare articles and tidbits about health - very informational with a touch of science, but short & sweet (my cup of tea). The celeb articles were great too! The topics in this magazine captured my age group perfectly. Oh yea and don't get discouraged about the price ($9.99 US) because its put out quarterly, not monthly. I recommend it for readers 30 & up!

It was one of my very first major assisting jobs and it turned out to be such a cooooool experience!! The locations, clothing, jewelry, makeup & hair - the entire trip - was so surreal! And I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist to assist - Donald was so much fun to work with!! I worked a lot, learned a ton but not once did it feel like work ... and that's why I love this career!!
