in my skin

My body’s not been the same since childbirth. Nothing can prepare you mentally and physically for what your body goes through during delivery and postpartum. Postnatal depression affects new mothers for this reason. A year later, I’m still getting around to mentally accepting my now curvier body. My coping mechanisms include working on myself internally through yoga, music and spending time with my son. In this issue of Glamour, we talk about mind and body, covering a range of topics that’ll provide you with food for thought. You’ll find informative, feel-good articles to educate and empower you in all kinds of ways. “Nothing can prepare you for what your body goes through during delivery” Our cover star is Connie Ferguson, the powerhouse who found fame on the soap opera Generations. Always poised and immaculately…

A firm favourite of ours, these candles are the absolute height of luxury. MORE TO COLOURING IN? Colouring books aren’t just for kids these days. There’s something extremely therapeutic and calming about colouring in, or even outside, the lines. Grab your pens and pencils and give it a go.
