Take Cover

Is it just me or are there way just too many women on the covers of magazines these days? I wish more women's magazines had really hot, smart and funny men on their covers (and inside). That would be great to see when I stand in the check-out line at the grocery store, knowing that inside, there are articles about wonderful, intelligent men making a difference too.

I mean, the world would be a much better place if fake breasts and heavily photo-shopped women weren't staring at us while we purchased our bag of Lime Tostitos.

Sometimes I find men's magazines way more entertaining than women's (but don't get me wrong, I loooove my Lucky, Women's Health, Allure and Nylon). When I go to men's homes I like to flip through their Men's Health and GQ not only for the eye candy but to get the perspective of what men are telling other men. If you haven't done that yet, I suggest you do. You'll learn a lot and get an eye full of well-kept gentlemen.

I've also found an added benefit to reading men's magazines, they help me find amazing gifts for men, whether it's a $400 Nixon watch, a safe to keep their most valuable possessions in, Armani cologne-- those samples are your best friend when choosing the perfect scent, or a really good wallet that's under $30. Yes, I like men's fashion almost as much as I love women's.

I'm so glad there are blogs out there where lots of (you) smart women are giving yourselves a voice while looking ridiculously fabulous. It's just unfortunate that most magazines are so advertisement-heavy and superficial. So kudos to you if you're writing about real life.

This is my rant for the day... thanks for reading and enjoy the cover photos of David Beckham, I know I did:

Amen!
Not gonna lie, I totally stayed up to date on Maxim when my college boyfriend's roomie kept them on their coffee table. I kind of miss that magazine...

Elizabeth Marie said...

Totally agree! I always read my bf's mags...they're so much more interesting at times.

I love reading my oh's fhm..its funny to read a mans perspective on relationships/sex etc and also because there is usually a decebnt article on a male celeb as womens mags tend to focus on us ladies

I know this wasn't the point of the post, but mmmmmmm Lime Tostitos....

Lola Lakely said...

Ahhh, Becks. I'm not sure if there is anyone hotter at the moment.

Although Maxim features women on the cover, I've always been partial to that magazine. Very witty.

Totally 100 percent agree. I'm tired of reading about women too. Give me some men once in a while. And definitely more Beckham. Sigh.

Kristin said...

I wouldn't mind some Gyllenhaal, Clooney or Jackman action a little more often!

HK said...

I could not agree more. we're constantly bombarded with women, and everyone could use a few more hot men in our lives!

Yeah one of my male friend pointed out that he found it amusing that mens magazines have scantily clad women all over them and so do womens magazines
