Ten things I learned while working in a fashion magazine

  1. Although the staff are pretty, flawless, fashionable and slim, they are polite, nice and clever too.
  2. They are slim because they eat pumpkin soup and crackers for lunch. They don’t binge on a chicken kebab then top it with a macaroon or a brownie (you moron!).
  3. The Devil Wears Prada doesn’t happen in each fashion magazine.
  4. A primer is important.
  5. To stop getting racoon eyes, dab some powder onto your eyes before applying your eyeliner.
  6. Pivovarova doesn’t party much and prefers a quiet life.
  7. There is an infinite number of ways you can use make-up.
  8. Lipstick can cost you over $50.
  9. Astrology readers can get their crystal balls mixed up and repeat predictions in some magazine issues.
  10. Soon, underwear threads will have aloe vera in them so you get a beauty treatment while wearing undies (another incentive not to go commando).


  1. You worked in a fashion magazine? How cool!
    I would be completely out of my element at a fashion mag. I might be slim but I would never look the part!

  2. Hi There,
    You uncover so many layers here in Mummyk land… Its terrifically interesting. I enjoy reading about others lived.
    Was interviewed for a mag & had photoshoot (lost weight about 100 years ago!) at the magazine HQ ( not ACP) & was amazed at the small size of work space & areas for one magazine…. Shoebox. Yeah?

  9. Aloe vera undies? Maybe this is how I will manage to get my daughter to keep her knickers on!

  10. I have an aloevera singlet… it’s very nice but I am not sure it does anything that special.. not like it makes my flabby stomach disappear or anything! LOL
