Wow, It’s been such an eventful week in the the world of sport, there we were with our England flags last weekend only to be disappointed once again that we lost on penalties. But typically British we all said “well never mind, its only a game”, when really inside we’re all thinking how could they have not got that little ball in that large net. Oh well I guess we will all have to wait for a couple more years, and hope its not the same story.
Then on Thursday we heard that the great and gorgeous David Beckham will not be in the Olympic Football Team, I personally think this is a real shame, and feel that just for all the good work he’s done he really should be in it. Of course its nothing to do with how great he looks in shorts, thats a terrible thing to say ha! ha!, no I really do feel its a bit harsh and he would definitely of drawn in the crowds.
I thought we would take a look at something slightly different this week, although obviously still on the value for money theme, and that is freebies that come with the well known mags. If you have looked recently either in your local supermarket or newsagent, you would of found that there is a huge amount of glossys which are begging for your attention, trying to entice you to spend your hard earnt cash on them. Well because its an increasing flooded market, the marketeers have to come up with a way of making their colourful offerings more desirable, and the way to do this is often by giving away freebies.
Freebies instantly attract the readers attention, we all love a bargain so to be given a useful product can often tip the balance when choosing a magazine for that train journey home.
Here are some that caught my eye…
This monthly magazine aimed at teenage girls, offers not only a great read about celebs, boys, fashion, latest hair styles and make up and not to forget the ever popular problem page. But has a free gift of a Mascara, Eyeliner and Sharpener, which has got to be worth more than the cost of the magazine.
Easy Living £3.70
This one is a bit more grown up, and does not only just have good articles on the latest fashion and beauty tips, but also about whats happening in the news. They publish great wholesome recipes, that are not difficult to recreate, and an interesting travel section. The free gift this month is very useful, its a Make Up Bag from The White Company.
Back with the teenage girls again with this fun magazine that has everything that young girls love to read about. Great fashion items and lots of info on the current celebs, chat about music and films, and don’t forget the beauty tips, and of course the obligatory problem page.

The stylish and well loved Cosmopolitan Magazine is a must for many, with articles on the home, the men in your life, great fashion and beauty tips and generally lifestyle advice. With this months brilliant issue you can nab yourself some hot looking Fashion Glasses which you would look good on any beach.
This is one of my favourites, it is always a good read and has some great advice on how to look good with hair and beauty techniques. The fashion items are always worth having a peek at, and also the advice on love matters. This months issue has a great freebie, definitely one not to be missed it is a Reiss Vest, yes thats right I couldn’t believe it either.
Lovely, homely mag that has some gorgeous recipes in it which are usually quick and easy to make. The home and garden section show us lots of new style ideas, and there is a useful money section.

In this issue they are giving away a lovely free Mascara or Eyeliner.
Marie Claire £3.60
I think everyone would of heard of this well known magazine, with its great articles on hair and beauty, fashion, celebrity talk, health and travel articles. Also they have brilliant competitions for you to enter. With this issue they are giving away a lovely free Nail Varnish.
Well I’ve had some great fun with this item, I wonder which mag you are going to rush out to buy, and whether its for the great articles or maybe just the freebie, whatever it is enjoy.
