a new era of hope for women? it’s about time!

First off, I want to start by saying a huge thank you to you, our Good Housekeeping readers. Since I introduced myself last month, so many of you have put pen to paper and fingers to keyboards to welcome me to your magazine and offering ideas and feedback. You’ve told me what you’d love more of, what you’d love less of and thoughts about new things we could include or improve. So much inspiration from you: it really is fantastic and I’m hugely grateful. As I take on board all the things you’re telling me, I do hope you’ll love how GH evolves and I know you’ll keep the feedback coming – we’re in this together! There’s lots in this new issue that I do hope you’ll enjoy, but I’d particularly…

Q. If you could go back in time, what would you change? A. I’d go back to school and really work hard in language lessons. It’s only since I left school that I got the taste for learning and, the older I get, the more I want to learn. It just seems harder as you get older. JANE TURNBALL Nothing! Experiences, the ups and downs and the people you meet make you the person you are today. TONI BUTLER I’d take life at a slower pace. LYNDA GRENYER I would have packed a rucksack and travelled the world before I took on the responsibilities of a mortgage and children! I’m making up for it now, though. Earlier this year, aged 57, I finally fulfilled a lifelong ambition to jungle trek with elephants in Thailand. SARAH MARCHANT I’d spend less…

‘my life is a complete rollercoaster’

Replacing national treasure Len Goodman as Strictly’s head judge last year seemed a tough gig, but Shirley Ballas has managed to quickstep her way into our affections with ease and grace. An award-winning ballroom dancer for five decades, Shirley’s unrivalled expertise and warmth shone through when she took her place alongside Dame Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood. But behind the sequins, Shirley has been through a lot in her 57 years. Brought up on a council estate in Merseyside by her mother Audrey, now 80, who scrimped and saved to send her to dance classes, she left home at 14 and had been married twice by the age of 25. She was dealt a devastating blow when her much-loved brother, David, took his own life at the age…

casual never looked so cool

LOW-KEY LUXE When it’s breezy outside, absolutely nothing beats a cocoon-like coat (and on those rare warmer days, drape it over your shoulders for extra fashion points). Our top tip? Keep colours muted and tonal to look effortlessly elegant. COLOUR CRUSH Give your black coat a break and invest in attention-grabbing colour. Bright outerwear works well if the shape remains simple. Use it to up the ante on everyday neutral separates. TIME FOR TEE When the weather turns chilly, slip a long-sleeve, white T-shirt beneath your favourite jumper. As well as being warm, it’s a great layering trick for making basic knits look a little more special – the band of white peeping through looks super-stylish. IN THE HOOD The one piece fashion editors are all investing in this season? The haute hoodie. Pick a super-soft one…

leopard print

TIP Circular bags are still big this season and will give tailoring a youthful twist. TIP Practical meets polished. The commuter-friendly loafer is key this autumn. The BLOUSE Don’t be afraid to style leopard with other prints – fashion editors consider it a neutral! Up the cool factor and mix it with heritage checks. TIP Not a girlie girl? A trainer will play down the prettiness of a skirt. The SKIRT Already love leopard? Then try the print in autumn’s alternative colours, such as red, pink, navy or green. TIP If you wear a top and trousers, you can wear a jumpsuit. Give it a go! The ACCESSORIES Find leopard print daunting? Use bags and shoes to dip into the trend and fast-track your look for the new season. TIP Take your cue from the catwalk and style a slim-fit…
