 STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.  (Thursday, Oct. 21, 2010) — As growing numbers of subscribers await the premier edition of  BELLA (NYC), the clock is ticking for advertisers seeking to profit from the magazine’s attractive pre-publication rates.


World-class in design, and regional in ad content, the soon-to-be-launched beauty and wellness bimonthly is the latest creation of Courtenay Hall, Bella’s editor-in-chief.

A seasoned media executive, Ms. Hall’s talents have contributed to the success of such notable nationwide publications as Metropolitan Home, Elle Decor, Better Homes & Gardens and the launch of ROSIE magazine.

“Headquartered on Staten Island, just minutes from Manhattan, BELLA will connect our readers to the latest and most innovative trends in beauty, fashion, health, diet, exercise, and so much more,” Ms. Hall said. “At the same time, local advertisers will cost-effectively connect to a motivated consumer marketplace.”


Scheduled to hit newsstands in January, the BELLA will reveal celebrities’ health and beauty secrets, and provide an insiders’ tour  — on and off Staten Island, N.Y. — of the best high-profile and lesser-known venues for products and services.

“With distinguished writers and photographers contributing to its content, BELLA is developing into one of the most exciting projects of my career,” Ms. Hall said. “We are particularly looking forward to having an open dialogue with our readers. Each issue, for example, will include ‘The Bella in You’® Makeover pictorial, featuring one of our lucky readers experiencing a day of pampering and renewal.” 

Each edition also will include “Ageless Beauty,” showcasing a member of the community who personifies beauty at any age.

 “BELLA,” Ms. Hall said, “is all about the individual — it’s all about ‘beauty defined by you.’ It can be characterized by wellness, inner strength or glamour. We’re all different and BELLA embraces those differences.”

The magazine promises to be a gem for readers, as well as advertisers such as retailers, massage therapists, hairstylists, day spas, physicians, chiropractors, jewelers and others providing fashion or wellness-related products and services.


Despite its luxurious appeal, BELLA is a bargain.

BELLA’s one-year subscription is only $10, a savings of 67 percent off the newsstand price of $4.95 per issue. A $15 two-year subscription will save you a whopping 75 percent.
