editor’s letter

In an ideal world, we’d have a couple of hours a day spent at the gym working out with a personal trainer. But if you’re in the same universe as the one I’m in – the universe where work, kids, childcare and homework orbit at a furious pace around us, exercise is but a shooting star. That’s a problem… because we need to take care of ourselves. It’s not an obsession, nor a luxury. When we are healthy and strong, we are naturally happier (thank the endorphins) and we’ll have more energy to cope with what life throws our way. You’ll find yourself moving more confidently, your clothes will fall better, and you’ll definintely have less swimsuit anxiety! This month, we want to get you to that place with our…

The Track Break Free by Ariana Grande Quicker track, quicker legs. You’ll be busy concentrating on Ariana’s strong affirmations that come on at a strong 130 BPM, instead of your aching limbs.

Tara Barker Group Editor What makes you feel confident? When my skin looks nice after diligently using moisturiser and sunscreen. Dry skin looks terrible and really ages you. Botox, fillers, laser treatments: Sometimes you need to pull out the big guns to get results. Gel nails for that “bosslady-meets-gangsta” vibe. Can you share an empowering quote with us? A plus-sized model I admire, Ali Tate, once said “To conform to anyone else’s standards of beauty is to change your essence. Own who you are, and you become a powerful woman.” Candy Lim-Soliano Contributor What makes you feel confident? Working out: I feel good when I’m fit.

the phoenix rises

In her role as a rogue assassin on Nikita, Maggie Q showed off a real tattoo: A phoenix in full flight, high on her upper thigh. It’s a telling symbol, a metaphor, almost, of the actress’s journey to fame, and a reminder of the struggles she had to overcome as a young actress. “When I moved to Asia from the US, it was tough for me,” says the 38-year-old, who was born and raised in Hawaii and left as a teenager to pursue modelling and acting in Hong Kong. Maggie adds, “It was a struggle to be a woman in the business. And I was poor, inexperienced and insecure. “Fortune tellers always told me I was a bird, and one day, an artist said, ‘You’re a phoenix because you’ve come from…
