Best Health arranges each of its seven issues into four pillars of women’s health: “look great,” “get healthy,” “eat well,” and “embrace life.” Inspiring articles adorn each page, offering makeup, skin, and fragrance picks as well as healthy recipes and suggestions for adventurous vacations. Personal trainers and psychologists contribute their professional knowledge to make healthy lifestyle changes as unintimidating and approachable as a newborn sock monkey.
Canadian Family loads eight issues with parenting pointers for pregnancies through the teen years. Readers can peruse family-tested products, including strollers and computers, or can test out seasonal craft ideas such as bumblebees made from yarn and garden-grown gingerbread houses. Nutritious and delicious groceries and original party ideas keep birthday fetes fresh, fun, and free from potentially dangerous rounds of musical swivel chairs.
Over the course of a year, Ottawa Magazine churns out five glossy issues packed with award-winning articles, hard-hitting journalism, in-depth profiles, and insider knowledge about food, shopping, and events in Canada's fourth-largest city. Reporters keep locals abreast on where to eat, who to know, and who to avoid at the grocery store in sections that explore everything from food and wine and homes and gardens to society and culture.
