I occasionally buy an issue of ELLE ($8.50) about twice a year impulsively. There are a few good entertaining reads, and even though one is not astrologically inclined - their horoscopes are so positive. The latter could all be due to timing too.
It is great to flick through the glossy pages to keep up on the current fashion trends. It is hilarious reading the E Jean letters towards the back. Her pearls of wisdom, as well as her direct, no BS approach to life is priceless.
