question one and two

explain two ways the extract fits the genre of lifestyle magazines. use examples from the extract.

this magazine fits with the genre of a lifestyle magazine because on the front it says 'easy living'.
below the title there is a small amount of writing that makes you read on in the magazine.'easy elegant summer dressing' this makes women read on in the magazine because they want to have the perfect summer clothing.
this magazine also fits the genre of lifestyle magazines because the contents show that the whole magazine consist of lifestyle such as real life, fashion, beauty and emotional intelligence.

explain how each of the following is used in the extract to create effect:

the layout of the magazine is very simple but effective to catch someone's eye, the magazine cover consists of a large picture of kylie Minogue filling the majority of the front cover, also small amounts of text surround her face and top half of her body.
the colour scheme is very bright and stands out, i think that they have chosen to do this because the magazine is called easy living, using the word easy suggests that this magazine is quite relaxed and informal.
the language in this magazine also suggests that it is very informal words such as summer's here and sexy also appear in the front cover in large stand out writing.

mock essay


 This magazine cover direct mode of address has been used on the picture where the land is looking directly into your eyes to show that this magazine is aimed at you. also direct address has been used in the text which has been enlarged, 'your PARTY dress code' this is also being directly aimed at you the reader.

In this image the whiting has the colour red which can be associated with women. Also the word RED has been highlighted so that it stands out on the page. The writing has been placed on the left hand side of the picture and the image is placed on theright hand side which balances it out. 

In the text the more important words are enlarged or highlighted so that you know that this piece of text is important to read or it is a main story. The words that mean less are in white and are a lot smaller than the other highlighted words.
