I love looking at beauty ads in magazines. Modern magazines are now filled with them, often coming close to taking up 50% of the entire magazine, but that wasn’t how it was 30 odd years ago. How do I know? During the holiday season my mother and I started to address her hoarding of unnecessary memories. In one of the many piles of junk, we came across some old women’s interest magazines from when she was a young lady. Today I am going to show you the ads from an issue of 19 Magazine from June 1973.

What Is 19 Magazine?

19 Magazine was a women’s interest magazine produced by IPC Magazines in London. It was sold in many countries, including Australia (for just 50 cents!), New Zealand, Rhodesia (which I think is now known as Republic of Zimbabwe), Nigeria, Canada and Sweden.

The topics covered included beauty, fashion, fictional stories and a heavy focus on music.

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
