OK! Magazine–The Royal Wedding Special


Grabbed the photo from OK! Philippines’ EIC’s blog – Topaz Horizon

I’ve long been a fan of OK! Philippine’s Editor in Chief Frances Sales. I stalk her blog, and I’ve liked her blog’s fan page on Facebook. I’m a fan.

But I’ve got to admit, I am not a big fan of her magazine. It’s not for me. I bought an issue a few months ago and realized that. Still, when the Royal Wedding Special came out (aka the May issue), I grabbed a copy.

I’m a bit disappointed though. A lot of the disappointment stems from the fact that I had looked at all those photos online already. I guess I was hoping to see other photos and back stories. Perhaps photos taken by OK! staff based in the UK or anyone who was there to witness the festivities.

But apart from that, it was a good read. I liked all the other features, even the one on Elizabeth Taylor. I also loved looking at pictures of pretty ladies in their pretty dresses.

And though I probably won’t be buying OK! at full price anytime soon, I’m still a Topaz Horizon fan and I’ll continue to support her in other ways. Smile
