welcome to the issue

if you’re beginning to struggle with the idea of the long haul that is this lockdown, you’re not alone. This might be our third iteration but, for many, it’s feeling the toughest yet. So this issue of Grazia is dedicated to resilience – with reassuring words from both author Marian Keyes (page 26) and Fearne Cotton (page 30) about the importance of going easy on yourself. Elsewhere, we’ve hunted down feelgood food, mood-boosting buys and a host of interiors ideas that will give you fresh inspiration for sprucing up the home you’ve now spent far too long trapped inside. We also spoke to vaccine volunteers – and those people receiving their jabs – in a moving piece (page 18) that I hope reminds you that there is light at the…

TRUMP’S TRAVESTY Regarding Where can America – and Trump – go from here? (28 Jan), Donald Trump is set to be the first US President to be impeached twice. He is a sore loser and it is with sadness and dismay that I’ve watched the turmoil in the US that is down to him. The definition of a ‘sore loser’ should just be replaced by a picture of Trump. The man has no decorum; he’s an embarrassment to America. This silly, vain man must surely go down as the worst President ever. I am hopeful that Biden can earn back some respect for the US. Shona AGE IS JUST A NUMBER The story behind Harry Styles’ and Olivia Wilde’s romance (28 Jan) was a breath of fresh air, as ALL other reports I’ve…

LET’S PULL TOGETHER After reading ‘I worry my cancer check-ups will be cancelled’ (25 Jan), I want to reassure readers that cancelling any cancer service is a last resort done only under extreme conditions, such as we find ourselves in now. But the NHS relies on everyone to abide by the rules to ensure hospitals aren’t overwhelmed. We need to focus on the greater good. I’m an oncology nurse in a unit giving chemotherapy and we have maintained our service throughout the lockdowns, staff sickness/self-isolation and some patients contracting Covid. Our patients have been so appreciative and we’ve all worked to ensure they receive treatment. This has only been possible due to following the rules and making sacrifices and I’d urge everyone to do the same to protect the NHS. Sarah…

“We have hope, we will recover, we will prevail” Amanda Gorman – the 22-year-old who wowed us all with her poem The Hill We Climb at new US President Joe Biden’s inauguration – spoke of hope, recovery and rebuilding. ‘We did not feel prepared to be the heirs of such a terrifying hour but, within it, we found the power to author a new chapter, to offer hope and laughter to ourselves,’ she recited in front of the Capitol. She may have been referring to American politics, but she also spoke to the way we’ve all soldiered on over the past year and the resilience we’ve shown –however many Bernie Sanders memes it’s taking to get us through. Let’s keep going.…

the complex social politics of who you meet for your walk

ANOTHER DAY, another corona-engendered crisis disrupts my life. This time, it’s of the etiquette-y variety, which I suppose makes a pleasant change from the death-y traumatised-y, scared-y for all aspects of my future and that of everyone I love-y variety. Just? It arose, thus: A person I’ve encountered in my neighbourhood, with whom I’ve exchanged pleasantries (‘How are you? Did you cut your hair? Is that an almond croissant?’ et cetera), and who seems nice enough really, recently took an admittedly brave punt and asked if, one day, I might join her on a daily Government-approved socially distanced walkabout. Now, as I say, she’d seemed perfectly nice previously; inoffensive, clean, not racist. However… Truth of the matter is: I’d never thought about her like that before. We just hadn’t connected on that…

1. New in PROFESSOR DEVI SRIDHAR Pulling furlongs ahead in the Best Public Health Advisor race she probably doesn’t even realise she entered, though she definitely did. Her and JVT, all the way. 2. New in FRAN LEBOWITZ As seen on Pretend It’s A City (Netflix), a sort of heavenly mix between Larry David and Dorothy Parker. Most iconic bob-craft we’ve seen since Fleabag. 3. Up NICHOLAS HOULT In Channel 4’s The Great, in which he plays Emperor Peter of Russia in a way that makes us think of a psychotic Hugh Grant. 4. New in OMAR SY We swore we weren’t going to binge Lupin (Netflix) because good telly is hard to find and increasingly precious – but then of course we did. Our conclusions? Deeply pro-Omar. 5. Non-mover SPENCER MATTHEWS Taking advantage of what is presumably price-slashed premium transport billboard space to…
