In my role as editor-in-chief at Good Housekeeping, it’s my privilege and joy to bring you interviews and stories from people I think you’ll find interesting and who might open your eyes to something new or different.

Q What eco-friendly changes have you made in your life? A We walk as much as we can, rather than using the car. And we go to a greengrocer for all of our fruit and veg instead of buying pre-packed.

You’d hardly believe she’d been up before the crack of dawn nursing a baby. It’s a big year for Alex, 42. She’s celebrating her 10th year co-hosting BBC One’s The One Show, the job that saw her relocate from her native Wales to London and turned her into a household name. It was also the catalyst to meeting…

BOLD & BEAUTIFUL A lightweight maxi dress in a graphic print is your go-to for introducing pattern to your spring wardrobe. This crisp cotton wrap style can be dressed up with colour-clash heels or styled down with flats for an easy weekend look. Contrast a simple blue and white design with a bright bucket hat. MIX IT UP Worried about mixing prints? Let your patterns do the talking with simple silhouettes. Here, clashing stripes and florals put a quirky spin on the classic tucked-in top and pencil skirt pairing. A simple white shirt underneath ensures the look is work appropriate. DRESS TO IMPRESS If you’re only just dipping your toe into pattern, a mixed-print dress is a good place to start. A combination of patterns and textures will feel fresh.
