For Me was created under the editorial direction of Jane Chesnutt, senior vice president, group publishing director, and editor-in-chief, Woman's Day. Ellen Breslau, senior articles editor of Woman's Day, serves as editor. Laura Klein, vice president, publisher of Woman's Day, oversees the business side. Hachette has distributed 480,000 copies to newsstands only.
Chesnutt says: "For Me's editorial content is solidly based on our research. We spoke to many women nationwide in this targeted age group that have extraordinary opportunities and have many decisions to make; they feel that no magazine today speaks directly to them."
For Me gives readers good advice on everything from the best lip gloss to throwing a dinner party. Here are some of the highlights:
On Love --- Are You Having A BRD (Bad Relationship Day?) -- When you're having a bad relationship day, it can feel like you're in the wrong relationship! For Me helps to identify these days and gives tips on what to do if you feel a fight coming on and how to weather these storms (page 28).
On Food --- Can you throw a dinner party if the only food you have ever prepared is canned soup? With tips on how to set the scene, organize your time and find the right ingredients, For Me provides the recipe for a fun, casual and (nearly) carefree affair (page 50).
On Home -- Those dyed-to-match pumps from your sister's wedding bring back memories but maybe it's time to move on. For Me provides 25 ways to finally get organized in every room of your house in Get it Together! (page 57).
On Style -- For Me shows you how to get the Look of the Moment and proves that ladies who lunch are no longer the only gals who can pull off and afford to buy the trademark Chanel boucle jacket (page 8).
