Lifestyle Conventions 2&3

Lifestyle Conventions 4

The standard model “guy” is a pretty straightforward being. When we tell our lady to shut her trap so we can watch some footie, it means just that. There are no hidden messages whatsoever. And it certainly does not mean, “Honey, now is the best time to talk about where this relationship is going.” But as we’ve stressed oh-so-many times in the pages of this very magazine, women on the other hand, are not so much into this business of being straightforward. The word “fine” for example, could mean a million and one things, and it is way better to have all your limbs chopped off by a mega-powered chainsaw than have a woman say the dreaded word to you.
So this month if your girl mutters, “We don’t really need to celebrate Valentine’s Day if you don’t want to,” don’t take it as your cue to jump for joy and spend all the cash on Star Wars Lego. Why? Because there is simply no chance in hell that she actually means it, plus it will take you forever to build one stupid Millennium Falcon.
If anything, it’s simply a test to see if you’re really the sensitive and caring dreamboat that you’ve been pretending to be, or if you’re just, well, a guy. So what do you do? If you really dig the chick – and third base is a great possibility – we recommend you sell all your worldly possessions and spend it all on that one special day. And to help your cause, we’ve got some pretty good V-Day gift ideas on pages 98 and 99. After all, third base is a pretty damn good thing.

Introduction to Lifestyle Magazine

Introduction to Lifestyle Magazine

The types of content in lifestyle magazines vary between advertising, mainly clothing, perfumes and fitness regimes. There are also small stories about life and mainly sex. The main focus points of the magazine are, health "10 ways to get happy" , beauty "immaculate complexion" , and appearance "personal stylist: party shoes".

From my analysis I have discovered that this magazine is probably targeted for women, as it advertises women perfume and clothing it also shows women wearing fancy clothes on the front cover. There is also a high heel on the cover. This magazine is probably aimed for young women as their interests of fashion and beauty are all included in the magazine. The design also suited for a female the pink ad light colors used on the front color. Also some of the phrases used on the contents page suggest it for a stylish woman, " if its stylish for Kate Moss..." (Then its stylish for you).

The purchasers benefit form buying the magazine varies from, tips on losing weight and keeping in the best shape. They may also benefit from the tips on style and fashion over the summer " what will you be wearing this summer ". The buyers of this magazine may want to read up on the latest gossip, and keep in touch with the crowd, " Jsp meets Russell Brand ", and " Joaquin Phoenix shows his darker side ". Another benefit they may want is to see the different culture of women around the world and what they do to look good. Also they may want all of the tips on fashion and whats "in" at the moment.
Finally they may want to view the latest products from beauty companies such as Chanel, Hugo Boss, and Dior.
