GLAMOUR con den­tial

To the max!

Glamour (South Africa) - - Ed’s letter -

mil­lions of words, thou­sands of im­ages, moun­tains of love, oceans of care, in­fi­nite team­work, more choco­late and cof­fee than we can quan­tify right now – and, most of all, your sup­port and con­nec­tion… that’s what brought us to this cel­e­bra­tory birthday is­sue. Thank you for shar­ing the jour­ney with us. Thank you for in­spir­ing us on­wards.

When GLAMOUR SA launched, Bey­oncé had just ven­tured into a solo ca­reer, Jen­nifer and Brad were mar­ried, P Diddy and Paris Hil­ton were huge, cropped cargo pants and Ugg boots were a thing, yoga was kind of weird and Queen Lat­i­fah had us all crav­ing velour track­suits. So, it would be fair to say that the world has changed a lot. But some things are al­ways true. So here, in hon­our of beau­ti­ful clas­sics, are 13 things we’ve learned in 13 years at GLAMOUR SA.

1 There’s al­ways a rea­son to bust out the choco­late, cake and sparkles.

2 Red lip­stick/heels/lin­gerie. When­ever you want.

3 You are so much pret­tier than you tell your­self.

4 Con­fi­dence is sexy, and when you’re short of con­fi­dence… red lip­stick/heels/lin­gerie.

5 Men will never un­der­stand socks and stilet­toes.

6 Sun­screen is im­por­tant.

7 The jeans that felt tight at the store will never be­come mag­i­cally com­fort­able.

8 An­i­mal print, nau­ti­cal stripes, plaid and rid­ing boots al­ways come back into fash­ion.

9 Kind­ness is even bet­ter than cake, choco­late and sparkles.

10 Your mom was right about sav­ing ev­ery month.

11 Your dad was right about a part­ner wor­thy of you.

12 There’s no force as pow­er­ful and in­spir­ing as women (and the men who love them) on a mis­sion.

13 SA re­ally does have talent. And style. And, yes, glamour!

Live the life. Fill it with GLAMOUR!
