Get GLOW-ing! {magazine}

With the increase of social media and online magazines some would argue that print magazines are on the way to extinction. However, one of Canada's print beauty magazines has had a makeover! GLOW magazine previously published by Rogers Communications has recently been acquired by St. Joseph Media; publisher of FASHION, MARIAGE Qu├ębec, Canadian Family and Toronto Life. GLOW magazine will not only continue as a print magazine but will also incorporate social media. Previously, GLOW concentrated on being Canada's beauty expert however the revamped version beginning May 2012 will bring fashion to its pages too.

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with Editor-in-Chief, Juliette Lie Baxter and Beauty Editor, Tania Kwong. And there is no truth to The Devil Wears Prada, these ladies were personable and friendly. Like meeting old University friends for coffee! Their enthusiasm for the revamped GLOW was so contagious I wanted to blurt out, "Are you hiring?". I had the chance to get a sneak peak of the upcoming story boards. In keeping with the old GLOW's beauty expertise which I loved; the revamped version is a "grown-up" blend of beauty, fashion and healthy living. 
The May 2012 cover features one of Canada's top models, Daria Werbowy. These girls sure know how to start off the revamped GLOW on the right foot!
Thankfully, print magazines are not dead. As I still enjoy the tangible feel of print magazines, there is nothing better than receiving your favourite magazine subscription or picking one up at the newsstand. 
Look for GLOW magazine at your favourite newsstand near you or read their online version!
