reasons to be joyful

I am incredibly lucky to have a sunny disposition. My glass is always half full and I’m unerringly positive (except when it comes to my kids, at which point I always fear the worst and have no sense of perspective!). But, in spite of my naturally buoyant nature, I believe happiness is a discipline – it takes work. You can find the chinks of light anywhere, as Matt Haig wrote so eloquently a few issues ago, but you have to be looking for them in the first place. So, our inaugural ‘joy’ issue is dedicated to recognising the meaningful moments in the everyday and being grateful for what we have now. On page 40 we ask experts to share their personal happiness strategies, from setting smaller, more achievable goals, to…

RAISING AWARENESS In our March issue, we featured a piece about perimenopause – the rarely-discussed hormonal change in women’s bodies that can happen up to a decade before the menopause starts. Dr Anna wrote to tell us what she thought. ‘What a brilliant article on perimenopause. As a GP, I see many women with the symptoms you describe,’ she wrote. ‘Many women find their symptoms quite debilitating and also feel out of control, but I have also found that there has been a lot of fear and suspicion surrounding HRT (since The Million Women Study, when a connection was made with breast cancer). During my training, I learnt about women’s health but had no idea of the extent to which menopause symptoms could affect women. Somewhat naively, I had assumed that periods slowed,…

BORROWED FROM THE BOYS Chunky faces and thick straps make for a statement-worthy timepiece to add some edge to ruffle blouses or pretty dresses, but also bring gravitas to the everyday. MIX YOUR METALS No matter your style or metal of choice, these watches will add a sense of classic polish to any outfit. Effortless, timeless and forever pieces. INTO THE BLUE Modern and sleek, Rado’s metallic blue hues are a fresh take on a heritage design. Ideal if you have a sportier sensibility or just like to go against the grain.

fashion conscious

The words ‘sustainable fashion’ used to send shivers down the spines of even the most discerning shoppers; there was nothing to bridge the gap between responsibility and style. Thankfully, established brands are catching on, creating beautiful lines that embrace sustainability, such as H&M’s Conscious Collection, Mother of Pearl’s No Frills, Sézane’s Committed and Arket’s recycled nylon swimsuits. Now, there are new designers weaving sustainability into their brand’s DNA. ACE & JIG Ace & Jig creates its fabrics in India. Its supplier sources the cotton locally, colours yarns with azo-free dyes and weaves the fabrics on wooden hand looms. It employs 90% female tailors and staff receive free childcare and organic produce grown on site. BAR AND NATALIE PERRY This collection from Bar uses melted-down coins and broken or unwanted jewellery, while Natalie Perry uses…
