‘we all deserve the opportunity to rise’

So says one of this month’s interviewees, Sabrina Cohen-Hatton, who I think you’ll agree when you read her story is a truly remarkable woman. I was fortunate to meet Sabrina at a party a few months ago, and my first impressions were that she was a beautiful and eloquent person with a really interesting job as a fire chief. Later, I discovered quite how incredible her achievements have been – she had an extremely difficult start in life, being homeless as a teenager and selling The Big Issue to survive. Through determination, courage and ambition, she changed her fortunes and now shares her experiences to help others achieve their full potential, too.I think giving back is a theme with inspiring women, and it’s something we found when investigating the changing…

‘i’m having the best time of my life!’

“Everybody I interview is interesting; everybody has a story”Lorraine Kelly arrives at our shoot in her gym gear and sporting a glow so radiant it could be seen from space! She’s just come back from a health retreat in Portugal, and it shows. ‘It was like putting your car in for an MOT,’ she says, explaining that she’d been tired and wanted to do something ‘just for me’.Seven days of juice, salad and exercise later, it’s clear that she’s ready to take on everything life is throwing at her and is raring to go. As she stands beside a picture of herself taken when she was in her early 30s, it’s jaw-dropping – and inspiring – that, at almost 60, Lorraine’s somehow defying the laws of ageing.From her early days…

5 GOLDEN RULES1 DON’T STRESS. If I could give my younger self one piece of advice, it would be to not get anxious over silly things that you can’t do anything about.2 SEIZE THE DAY. Live in the moment and go to bed at night thinking, ‘Do you know what, that was good.’ Make sure you do one good thing every day.3 SMILE. I think that, as you get older, you get the face you deserve. If you have been a really miserable person, for whatever reason, that will be reflected in your face. So, remember to smile.4 TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Have a takeaway or a treat, but not every day. I still love curry and pizza, just not all the time!5 BE CURIOUS. If you’re only interested in…

Return to retroThere’s an abundance of ultra-feminine skirts and demure fabrics on the high street right now. Tone down the girlie-girl connotations with a cool print clash.

This frock will work magic for the office, weddings and everything in between. Keep hair slightly messy and make-up barely there to modernise fancy florals.
