it’s all about you!

“Allowing yourself a bit of creative time is about putting yourself at the top of your to-do list – we all need to prioritise our wellbeing” In this issue we’ve been taking a look at creativity and realising that this life stage is a great time to rediscover it. I’ve noticed lots of my friends are either getting back into hobbies and activities they enjoyed in their youth or they’re taking up new pursuits. In our feature Crafting is my lifeline (p56), we interview three very busy women who use crafting to de-stress, including Melissa, a scene of crime officer who loves cross-stitching and quilting. Allowing yourself a bit of creative time is actually about putting yourself at the top of your to-do list. A few years back, when both my…

3 is the magic number

Girl power is the phrase that springs to mind when you get Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid, Charlotte Hawkins and Kate Garraway in the same room. These are the women who are responsible for some of breakfast TV’s greatest eye-rolling moments (yes, we’re looking at you, Piers Morgan), its slickest live interviews (think everyone from Jeremy Corbyn to David Beckham), and some of the most watched (and watched again) off-script scenes. With this formidable trio of women in charge, it’s no wonder the show now attracts over one million viewers, and is the UK’s most talked about breakfast show, making daily headlines from who wore what to who said what. And that’s not to mention the fact that each of these three women juggles a job that sees them rise as…

Susanna Reid: The fitted dress We’re lucky we have a brilliant stylist called Debbie Harper (@debbiedresses), who has helped each of us carve out our own look on the show. I’m happiest in a fitted dress with a little bit of sleeve, so I don’t show too much arm, and the funny thing is, some of my most popular looks are when I’m wearing the cheapest clothes. I once wore a £14 Asda dress and Dame Joan Collins came in wearing virtually the same thing, but it was Dolce & Gabbana – everyone went mad for that one. Charlotte Hawkins: The sleeveless look If you watch the show, you’ve probably noticed that I’m usually wearing something sleeveless. In fact, viewers often get quite protective and will tweet me saying, “It’s really cold outside,…

“this is such a nostalgic moment in a mother’s life”

It’s your job – to teach them how to love, live… and leave My son is leaving home. Not yet, not quite yet. We have a few more weeks together before Tom departs for university. He is impatient to be off, of course, out into the big world. I want him to feel confident and happy so I try not to let him see how my heart is pleating inside as I assemble a pile of stuff he will need. His blankie, the yellow honeycombed shawl my mum knitted when he was born, still lies under his pillow. Eighteen years old, like the child it has comforted so many times, the blankie is faded to cream from so many washings. I bury my face in it, thinking, don’t be sad, this…
