manifesting magic in 2021

I’m a big believer in putting what you want out there by having an abundance mindset. It’s worked well for me over the years, surprising me time and time again. And what better way to approach 2021 and the start of a new year. Good digital editor Hemma Vara researches Modern Manifestation on page 32, where she explains that manifesting goes beyond acquiring a new dress or a future husband, although these are likely incidental along the way. It is about getting closer to our true authentic selves, allowing us to strengthen our self-worth and mindset about who we are. We can then wholly believe in and back ourselves on a subconscious level, to achieve what matters most, whether it’s abundance, success, or freedom. One thing I’d most like to help manifest…

your feedback

@lovebyolivia Olivia Shelley Cosford So happy to get my Good magazine in the mail! Helen Manson’s article about Ugandan mothers (issue 71) moved me to tears. One thing I notice though, as I flick through, is the advertising for anti-ageing products. In a magazine in which body positivity is a cover story, I’d love to see beauty products celebrating our bodies at all stages rather than telling us we could look “better”. This year I was diagnosed with bowel cancer at 32. It’s been a hell of a ride and one thing it has taught me is that our obsession for hiding our age is bullshit! Growing old is a gift and a privilege, so I’m on a mission to love the scars, lines and wrinkles on my body that tell the story…

rewilding the world

If there was one word in 2020 that brought hope for the future health of people and the planet it was “rewilding”, – thanks to David Attenborough. In his latest documentary film A Life on Our Planet, which Attenborough calls his witness statement, he outlines what a mess man has made of the planet in his lifetime but he also offers an answer to fixing it. If we rewild land and oceans we stand a chance. “Rewilding the world is simpler than you might think,” says Attenborough. “And the changes we have to make will only benefit ourselves and the generations that follow. A century from now our planet could be a wild place again.” Now around the globe people have begun to talk about rewilding. Eco fashion brand Maggie Marilyn has even…

yaris day out at hampton downs

There’s nothing like experiencing a hot lap to appreciate the skill and thrill of motorsport and understand the attraction to it. What makes it even more thrilling is doing one in a hybrid. Admittedly the fastest car on the track the day New Zealand motorsport driver Chelsea Herbert hosted our group for some hot laps was the GR Yaris (not a hybrid, though it is extremely fuel-efficient). It is the first every-day production car to be reverse engineered by Toyota from a pure motorsport car. And while it’s super racy, the Yaris model I’d choose to take home would have to be the new compact SUV Toyota Yaris Cross. The Golden Ore exterior definitely beckoned to my inner fashionista though it wasn’t just the paint job that got me excited. Being an SUV…
