More Magazine

I haven't checked if this is a duplicate topic.

But, I saw More magazine at my doctor's office this week and liked what little I was able to read (before going in). I bought the current edition last night so I can check it out at my leisure.
I really like that this magazine focuses on the over 40s woman. What make-up, clothing, hair styles work better. I know it's been out for a while. I remember when it first came out I thought a magazine for 'older' women made sense. But, I wasn't 'old' like that, so I didn't pay attention. Ha! First, 40 isn't old. And now I'm thankful for this magazine.
I got so frustrated reading other popular magazines because everything is targeted at the 20-something woman. Finally, I (hopefully) can look through a magazine and not have to 'adapt' the styles and looks for an older body/skin.
:cheers:

    I love More Magazine!! Most of the ads in it feature older models, too. And I agree, it's nice to read articles that are geared toward women my age, with similar interests.... More Mag. can be found everywhere -- grocery stores, drug stores, bookstores...

    I got a subscription after Rou mentioned it in a Happy Birthday post to CelticCurls! Oh, and I saw a copy at work (people bring in their old magazines to share).

    I find the stories really inspirational. So many women are doing exciting things during the second half of their lives...it makes me more aware of how "settled" and "the die is cast" my own attitude is. I also really like the medical tips.

    I bought my copy at Walgreens. Marg Helgenberger is on this month's cover. The one I picked up at the doctor's office has Holly Hunter on the cover. I'm about to log off and go read more now.

    I've subscribed since I was 39. I'm 44 now. It's not my favorite magazine (Self and Body+Soul are), but I like the idea of it.

    I love MORE, too! It's the only magazine I've read where I actually like the clothes and can envision wearing them. The health stuff and the overall writing are really good too. I loved the Anne Kreamer story about going gray.

    That Anne Kraemer story was my inspiration for no longer coloring my hair. So I cut it all really, really short (1/2 - 1 inch) last September, cutting off all of the processed color. Now it's to the bottom of my neck in the back, shorter in the front with layers. It's healthier than it's been in years and curling fairly well - for me. And with the increased curls, I don't even notice the gray that much! Or maybe it's just that I don't have as much as I thought. Or maybe I'm just more comfortable with myself. IMO healthy hair (whatever the color) beats dried, processed hair every time. And I just couldn't seem to keep my hair healthy while coloring it.

    To sum up, and get back OT, I think More Magazine is helping me be more comfortable and confident in my 40's. :cheers:

    You go, 2poodles! I had the same reaction and stopped coloring on 10/19/06, then I cut off all my hair soon thereafter. My last big cut was in August, now I'm growing it out somewhat. Don't think I'll go back to where it was before (2-3 inches past my shoulders). I don't notice the gray as much either, and my hair is healthy like when I was in high school and not doing anything to it except for washing occasionally.

    I really like this magazine also. I started reading it at my doctor's office and have been so hooked I get their weekly email newsletter. It is usually a repeat of the magazine but sometimes you get some information that is not in the magazine. It is great to know that there are other women out there struggling and overcoming some of the same issues I have.

    I really like this magazine, too. I've been subscribing to it for over five years. It's so refreshing to have a magazine that is targeted for us rather than 20-somethings.

    Fine, 3A, but a lot of it.

    I subscribed for a couple of years and liked it lot. KurlyKaren, you can find it almost anywhere magazines are sold. It's pretty cool to have a stylish magazine geared to women over 40.

    I like More too, and read it regularly, but I have to say that I get tired of the upper-middle class fantasy world of women's magazines in general, More included. As much as I love a good reinvention narrative, these stories all tend to hinge on some sort of influx of cash - the "divorce settlement,' or the 'sale of the software firm,' that eventually leads these women to open the surf school in Costa Rica, or achieve the post-menopausal yoga body. Just saying.

    Also, I noticed that that a column that used to be called "What to Wear for the Rest of Your Life," has changed its name to something, er, less dramatic. Thank god. I can just imagine myself laid out in my coffin in a trapeze dress with peep-toe pumps. Geez.
    3A - fine, just above shoulder length, w/red color and highlights.

    Product: Suave Coconut leave in, Joico Joiwhip mousse, Angell or F/X Curl booster on wet hair. Sometimes rotate in ReCoil/CK.

    Routine: Scrunch with cloth diapers, then use Shellynot's clipping method. Diffuse a bit without touching hair. Leave clips in at least half and hour. Remove clips and air dry.

    Day 2: Pineapple, no product.

    Well, I forgot to take the magazine with me. I sat in that room in a stupid paper gown and top for an hour! I seriously thought about making a break for the waiting room to grab that magazine.
    Instead, I took a nap!
