...I recall the non-comics material in that title being fairly large;print advice for young/pre-teens stuff (make-up, ,puzzles, boyfriends.etc./ with illos of B&V for a graphic treat. 
  Is this book just the comics stories? I can't read the ToC.

You're thinking of the later issues (#69-90), where Dan Parent remodeled the title to make it seem more like a girls' magazine (these issues are easy to identify by the magazine-style covers, although it still retained the classic floppy comic format), and included a lot of extra features, fashion and topical pages, quizzes, etc. The issues before #69 were all regular comic stories (with some single-pagers) like any other Archie comic book.
