Subscribers Have More Fun ...

First let me say that I like Kim K., but I was more than happy to get my panda/Magdalena Frackowiak subscriber copy of Harper's Bazaar in the mail over the weekend. The Kim K. cover happens to be the newsstand cover. It's funny, I know sex sells, therefore Kim makes sense for the newsstand cover but if these two covers were sitting side by side on the newsstand I would go for the panda/Magdalena cover. You already know you're going to find "pretty" in any issue, but the panda cover made me wonder what "pretty, off-the-cuff, fun" things you might find in this giant March issue. Which would you choose?

By the way, if you get my tweets, you know that I was geeking out over these model-morphosis images this weekend. I was having way too much fun dragging that orange bar back and forth to see the instant changes. It's brilliant!

And the slow-cooker curried chicken with ginger & yogurt recipe I tweeted about from Real Simple turned out to be so good! We just added some potatoes and peas to the mix and ate it with naan bread (Indian flat bread). It was a definite thumbs up in our household.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! And a big "hello" to all the new Happenstance readers!:)

I would definitely go for the panda one! As pretty as kk is, the panda cover is just so unique!

I think Kim is pretty but I'm just a little over her. I would choose the Panda cover any day :)

The panda cover is hysterical -- the model's serious look with that background is wonderful. And I am trying that chicken recipe. It sound so good!

Jillian: Love your honesty about "the freaky panda." Lol.

Jaclyn: Thanks! And welcome:)

Brandi: Try it you'll love it.

Rebecca: Too funny! Great minds think alike! Add some potatoes if you can, was delish.

Definitely gotta go with the panda for shock value... give us something unexpected instead of another gorgeous face!

i would totally buy the panda cover too. i would expect it to have some kind of Furry expose in it. i vote for the creep factor over the sexpot factor any day!

I love the Halston meets Panda chic cover, but have to admit I am all about the Kardashians. Sadly.

Magdelena looks so serious, almost like she's holding the panda hostage or something.

Embarrassingly, I didn't even realize until now, the reason why they put sex on stand covers. I'm so naive.
