I love the idea
of anniversaries. To arrive at one, whether it’s a humble first or a grand 50th, is a tribute to the commitment of those who are involved.
It says you stayed the course and didn’t give up. It says you made it through all the obstacles that came your way – and survived. And for that, you get bragging rights and a chance to celebrate in a big way.
That’s exactly what the Simply Her team is doing this November. We’re 10 years old and darn proud of it! So we’re not going to be shy about blowing our own trumpet (just a teeny, weeny bit).
First up is a slew of 10th-anniversary giveaways, promotions and activities just for readers. We know we wouldn’t be here if you didn’t love our stories, road tests and expert tips as much as you do. So don’t forget to make full use of the spa, wellness and food treats we’ve lined up – packed into a convenient card you can slip into your handbag.
You can also win more than $10,000 worth of prizes, from beauty products to hotel stays (pg 104). And we’ve collaborated with Salad Stop! to create a take-and-go Simply Her Birthday Salad (pg 107), filled with crunchy veggies, raisins and a lemony vinaigrette – perfect for a light lunch. It’s yummy, we promise.
Make room in your schedule to join us for the Simply Her Baking Challenge. Or even better, take part in it. The task: Bake us a birthday cake we’ll love – the best ones will win prizes. Turn to page 108 for details on how to enter.
Inside the magazine, look for our “Simply Her is 10” logo, which highlights special stories we’ve put together to celebrate our birthday. Get our top 10 picks for: the most wearable outfits for work (pg 24), stylish makeup looks (pg 34), heart-warming stories (pg 72), useful life advice (pg 110), delicious birthday cakes (pg 120), out-of-the-box party venues, custom gift ideas and unusual catering ideas (pg 124), and the best tablet games for the family (pg 140).
Don’t miss the winners of our Smart Shopper Great Hair Awards (pg 50) too. An expert panel tested a whopping 200 products to bring you 69 of the best – shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, serums, dry shampoos, home hair colour kits and more. Saves you trying to figure out what works for your locks, so every day can be a great hair day. Enjoy!
