embracing the new

If there’s one thing we have all got used to this year, it is change. But what we’ve all learned from the numerous lockdowns of 2020 is that we are all stronger and more resilient than we could have ever imagined. I have never spent so much time at home during my working life – even my maternity leaves were shorter than lockdown! But women like us have found an inner strength, not only to keep going, but to use our new-found time constructively. I’ve made evening meals for my family for the first time ever, learned to bake at weekends and even taken up embroidery in the evenings! It’s amazing how adaptable we can all be.

CHANGING WORLD My young granddaughter was drawing a picture of her ideal kitchen and it had three taps at the sink. When I asked her why, she replied, ‘This one is for hot water, this one is for cold water, and that one is for hand sanitiser.’ The future is going to be so different for her generation. Linda, by email ANIMAL WELFARE As a promoter of animal welfare it would be good to see your beauty features state if products are tested on animals.

Strictly is known for its camp fun, high glamour and lashings of sequins, and on our shoot it becomes clear that Motsi and sequins are a match made in heaven! When she’s not judging celebrities in pursuit of the coveted Glitterball Trophy, Motsi lives in Germany with her husband Evgenij Voznyuk and their two-year-old daughter. When conversation turns to family, Motsi’s eyes light up in the same way they do when she’s discussing her craft. It’s clear to see how much the two things mean to her. But following the Black Lives Matter movement, Motsi is also aware of how important…
