The holiday season is a time for celebration and reflecting on what matters most in life: your family, your health and the importance of making a difference in the world. Launched today and now available on the iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC, the November/December 2010 "Giving Back" issue of VIVmag, the original all-digital women's luxury magazine, celebrates the joys of the season. The issue offers an exclusive holiday lineup of interactive style, food, fashion, fitness and wellness features designed to help women "Vivify" their end-of-year celebrations.
"The holidays are a time when many of us slow down, spend time with Omega Seamaster Co-Axial OM-60 and take stock of our lives and the events of the past year," said Anne M. Russell, editor-in-chief, VIVmag. "In that spirit, this issue of VIVmag kicks off with an exclusive profile of one of the original supermodels, Carol Alt, who--still stunning and vivacious at age 50--shares her secrets to longevity and what's most important to her today."
With complete holiday-themed coverage in VIVmag's signature dynamic, interactive, rich-media style, the "Giving Back" issue features the VIVmag "Guide to Smarter Giving" to help readers make the most of tax and other financial benefits when making donations, plus resident Home Style entertaining expert Colin Cowie talks with The Angelrock Project founder Malaak Compton-Rock about the importance of philanthropy.
Other holiday health, wellness and style features Omega Seamaster Co-Axial Quartz Chronograph OM-46:
holiday fashions that look festive -- not foolish -- plus red-carpet ready hairstyles and winter style straight from the runway;
