passion & purpose

Welcome to our special New Year issue. I’m so excited to bring you your Vision Board Kit for 2020. This year, we want to encourage you to be purposeful and passionate, to deepen your connections with the people, practices and places that bring you joy.

Stroke of genius Applying make-up can be tricky (those eyeliner flicks take practice), especially for those with motor disabilities. Enter Kohl Kreatives. This non-profit organisation recognises the empowering effect that make-up can have and aims to make application achievable for everyone.
