Oh, I Am a Happy, HAPPY Girl Tonight!

My favoritest magazine in the whole, wide world is coming back.
Hoffman Media has taken over publishing it (they do Southern Lady, etc.) and I have great hopes. The typeface is back, the photography looks like it will be just as voluptuous…oh, DANG! This is COOL.

  1. Nice… Victoria used to be an indulgence of mine. I had a pile of issues I kept for years, but I got rid of them all in one of my moves…

    For a moment there, I thought you really were shifting away from Huffingdork.
    And then I clicked on the link. Never mind!

  3. Dang, we’re kindred sisters there, Andrea! With the exception of the first year (I had no idea what I was missing) and the last year (Peggy Butler, Ed. was universally despised. Plus the fact that I’ve actually shaken Nancy Lindemeyer’s hand/spoken to her ::gasp:: at the WTC Mariott, of all places. I’m the complete groupie.), I have ALL the issues. Love them, love them, LOVE them.
    It was a magazine you could read, vice scan the captions. Hoffman had to put out a pretty penny to buy all that from Hearst, so I’m hoping they do it justice in spirit.
    Hmmm, now I’m reading that Hearst is in cahoots with Hoffman ~ jeez, I hope someone called Nancy…

    I am ‘twixt hope and fear on this one.
    Victoria used to be my most favorite magazine – a perfect escape – and then it ceased publication. So I have high hopes for it coming back.
    Still…I’ve seen other resurrected magazines (Eating Well is one) undergo subtle or not-so-subtle changes (Eating Well is sadly becoming one of those screechy healthist publications with the Eat Lots Of Vegetables Every Day Or Die motto) that made them not the same as their previous incarnations.
    So – I requested my free trial issue but I’m not getting my hopes up too much. I just hope they don’t turn into every other women’s magazine, where 1/3 of the non-ad pages are devoted to “How to look Sexy after 40!” (or some other superficial crap), 1/3 are devoted to gooey yummy looking recipes, and 1/3 are devoted to “diet advice” that basically amounts to the fact that you can never, ever again eat any of the delicious foods promoted on their recipe pages…

  5. I’m so WITH you on that, ricki.
