this year is for you!

It’s not selfish, it’s having a sense of self I often write and talk to women about the importance of “investing in you”. I feel it’s not only the key to your wellbeing but your family’s too. It’s not a selfish statement – it’s about having a sense of self and that doesn’t mean turning your back on your family, friends or responsibilities. Whether it’s for an hour, a morning or a whole day, it’s about putting you at the centre and taking time for what matters to you. And that’s what this issue is all about – women sharing their “invest in you” experiences to inspire you to do the same. Why not learn something new and join a course?

silent witness & my real-life dramas

With her ability to convey fragility and strength, Emilia Fox, 42, has become one of the country’s most popular and versatile actresses. At our shoot she is warm, witty, thoughtful, self-deprecating and politeness personified. Emilia was born into acting royalty – her parents are Joanna David, 69, and Edward Fox, 79.
