2021? we’ve got this!

Hello 2021! Everyone is pretty pleased to see you! And to celebrate the start of this very welcome brand-new year, we have some fantastic ideas for a life refresh. How about starting with ‘me time’? I think we could all do with giving ourselves permission for self-care, so get started by reading our beauty feature Mind & body me time, on page 86, for some ideas on glorious ways to relax and revive. Of course it’s not all about lying around in the bath. In fact, increasingly for me, the answer to everything is always fresh air and a bit of communing with nature – read our Brrrr… Bring it on feature on page 46 about the new trend for embracing the cold.

Jan Mitchell Rogers, by email A STITCH-UP? Amber Graafland’s article on 10 style lessons [November] suggested that for a few pounds, a pair of high-street trousers can be transformed. Why is it acceptable for only a few pounds to be paid? Many seamstresses take time and effort to ensure the perfect fit, but may earn less than minimum wage. Karen, by email TOO CLEAN I love the idea of feeling grateful for small things. But including the fact that we’ve become obsessed with hygiene…

‘singing was my obsession’

Every Saturday night, for four months during the first lockdown and beyond, Katherine Jenkins performed a concert from home, singing live over Facebook – a total of 20 times to more than five million viewers. During a period of intense worry, fear and, for many, isolation, the mezzo-soprano’s music and infectious radiance worked like virtual magic, elevating the nation’s spirits while bringing a much-needed injection of stability. But today, chatting over Zoom from her sitting room in west London, Welsh-born Katherine has a confession, that the weekly concerts saved her too. ‘It’s OK to say it’s been hard. I’ve been through the ups and downs like everybody else,’ she admits. ‘Having something to work towards and knowing that other people were also relying on the 6pm meet got me through.’ Katherine’s music career…
