As sad as I am to see summer already on its way out, I have to admit that I’m excited for fall weather, skirts and tights, boots and all the new looks and great fashion that comes along with cooler temperatures.
Speaking of new looks, you may have noticed that Winnipeg Women has undergone some cosmetic changes as well. We’re known to be Winnipeg’s number one luxury magazine, so there’s no better place to reflect that than on our own pages. Our new design is sleek and sexy and we hope that you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.
We also hope you’ll flip to the Winnipeg Men side of the magazine, where we’ve shaken things up with a new look as well. Our men’s cover feature, Let’s Talk about Sex, is a must read for both sexes, as it covers a lot of fun and interesting ground. Then back here on the women’s side, we talk about sexual health and even feature lingerie on our fashion pages. Dress yourself in something pretty, whether it be for your partner or, even better, for yourself.
Way back in the winter we featured a potential candidate for the Winnipeg mayoral race, and this issue we focus on Paula Havixbeck, a strong contender in the upcoming October election. We talk to her about her current involvement as a councillor and her plans for the city if she’s elected mayor.
Our Ask the Expert column weighs in on the proposed cyberbullying law, which has been brought to the forefront due to the media coverage of online and cellular stocking and bullying. There have even been suicides due to this kind of harassment, and I for one am all for a law to help prevent it.
Then of course our Dish and Home & Garden sections are brimming with our usual restaurant reviews, recipes, decorating articles and garden tips.
One final thing I’d like to bring your attention to is our all new Winnipeg Living section, located between the two sides of the magazine. A new regular section, it will feature realtors, editorials on condo and housing sales, tips on where or when to buy, the hottest markets and more.
Enjoy your fall, Winnipeg, and everything new Winnipeg Women and Winnipeg Men have to offer!
