Hello Radiating confidence…
Having confidence is one of the most important things in life, and one of the most powerful tools of success. It’s the main theme of our issue this month – how to find it withinyourself, nurture it to help you in any situation, and radiate it so that others are inspired.
Of course, much about being confident in your own abilities lies in trusting your knowledge. It’s one of the things I love most about the w&h community of readers – you always want to be in the know and stay up to date, which is what we help you achieve every month.
Sometimes, that deep belief in yourself is what pulls you through tough times. See our stories on Gillian, who lost her house to a fire (p36); Cathy, who walked away from a relationship (p39); and Sally, whose mother suffered from dementia (p48) – all of these women share the ability to find their inner strength during very difficult periods.
Everything you need to know about the new key pieces and looks is here and, even better, there’s something for every shape and size! Use our expert tips to feel confidently on trend, and further your own sense of style. Next, round off your look with our seasonal make-up makeover.
If you’d like to know about the one lipstick for sheer confidence or the best foundation, plus have a step-by-step to the new smoky eye, turn to page 122 for tricks on how to get stand-out looks.
I’m also incredibly excited to announce our new-look w&h website. It’s had a beautiful makeover and is now slick, gorgeous, and full of hair and beauty ideas, diets, health and wellbeing tips, fashion, and delicious recipes. For daily inspiration go to womanandhomemagazine.co.za! And, to celebrate our site’s relaunch, we have a month of prizes online, and a stream of Facebook giveaways.
With w&h mag and our new website at your side, you have the support to go confidently forward. As the actress Mae West once said, “A dame that knows the ropes isn’t likely to get tied up.” Lovely!
Animal lover, digital creative, realistically optimistic and more passionate about my place in the world than ever before.
