it’s all about you!

“woman&home is a positive force for midlife women who want to look good, feel energetic and have adventures” This is my fifth issue as editor and I really hope you’re enjoying the new modern look. We’ve given your favourite magazine a bit of a refresh, with new writers, stylish photography and smart layouts. But don’t worry, we wouldn’t dream of changing what lies at the heart of woman&home – inspiration and empowerment for grown-up women. I’ve just looked up empowerment in the thesaurus to find an alternative word, as it sounds a bit heavy and strident for us. But then I decided to leave it in because woman&home is about empowerment – not in a “taking ourselves too seriously” way but by being a really positive force in the lives of…

“i’m totally open to finding love again”

Few celebrities would feel comfortable arriving at a photo shoot dressed in their pyjamas (a black velour onesie, in case you’re wondering) – well, you haven’t met Susanna Reid yet. This is a woman who has no qualms to admit that what you see each morning on Good Morning Britain is far from reality. “I rarely get recognised in the street because I’m in the make-up chair for about 45 minutes before going on air – and without that, I look quite different,” she tells me. Susanna’s presenting career began at BBC News 24, followed by a move to BBC News Channel, then BBC Breakfast , in 2003, where she remained for 11 years before departing for ITV’s rival programme, Good Morning Britain . During that time, she’s handled everything from…

like mother, like daughteré

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Susanna’s mum, Sue, joined us on the shoot. Sue, 76, is a retired nurse and health visitor and lives in London. She is also mother to Susanna’s two older brothers. SUE SAYS… One of my proudest moments was when Susanna performed the Viennese Waltz to the song You Light Up My Life on Strictly – because that’s exactly what she did for me. I love both my boys dearly, but when the midwife held Susanna up and said “It’s a girl”, I burst into tears; it was the most unexpected gift. Susanna and I did have some challenging years. When she turned 13, we started having a lot of spats and I felt as though I’d lost my daughter. It all came to a head one night when she…

allison pearson   our brilliant new columnist on the modern midlife woman

Whenever I lack confidence, or am about to pull out of an event that intimidates me, I always think back to the time I appeared on the Oprah show in Chicago. Just as I was about to walk out onto the set, in front of a packed audience, the producer smiled and said, “Miss Pearson, you’re going live to 40 million Americans.” Gee, thanks for that reassuring thought. Not. I was petrified. But as I approached the great Empress Winfrey herself, I did a deal with my fairy godmother. “Look,” I said, “if you will just let me get through the next 20 minutes without falling off the back of that bench or saying something stupid, or clutching the hostess’s hand like a star-struck loon while shouting, “Oprah! Oprah! Omigod, it’s…
