This is something absolutely wonderful about taking the time to read a book.  I mean a paper copy, good quality book.  Of course, as a blogger I am always reading great things online, but I was really happy to get the chance to read, “The Vogue Factor”.  I know there are many people who dream of an exciting life and this book really gives you a look into the not so average lifestyle of a magazine editor.

I have always had a love for fashion and often get lost in fashion magazines.  “The Vogue Factor” was a great look inside the magazine world.  I love how the author, Kristie Clements shares her success story of starting her first job answering phones and making her way to the editor’s desk.  She does an amazing job of making you feel like you are on the journey with her.  Her constant determination is a clear message in her book.

I know i have often envisioned what it must be like to work in the magazine industry and have always been curious as to what life is like behind the scenes of the monthly printed issue.  I felt Kristie really gave me a look into what happened at her time at Vogue.  Some of the  parts that I found very interesting were her travel stories.  She explained what it was like to be on photo shoots and working with models.  I know I strive to make sure, gives women positive feeling about themselves and a feeling of empowerment.  Reading the tell all details that she explained when working with these models was shocking to me.  I know many models struggle with eating disorders, but in one part I read that one woman passed out daily because of her lack of eating so she could be skinny enough.  Absolutely, heart breaking.  I am very glad that many magazines are changing the need for stick skinny.  I found this to be one of the many interesting details of her book.  Kristie really makes you feel like you are experiencing life in the magazine world.

If you are looking for an inspirational read, I would highly recommend, “The Vogue Factor.”  Like many of you, I LOVE hearing about women empowerment stories.  My absolute favorite part of this tell all is how Kristie went from your average girl to taking trips across the country, working with celebrities, designers, etc.  But, her success did not come over night.  She truly worked for her success and is a true inspiration.

This book sure made my workout fly by. :)
