Hard to believe that October is here, right?
While we recognise this as the official month for breast cancer awareness, the reality remains: cancer doesn’t have a timeline. With this is mind, we decided to honour the cause by bringing to light the little-known faces and voices that fight cancer in their own remarkable way. The feature begins with Eddah’s Hope founder Issaji, who began the foundation to raise awareness among young people, after realising that he had nowhere to lean on for psychological support or local information as his mother battled with cancer. He named the foundation in her memory, and his story is definitely worth the time. Read this humbling feature on page 24.
On a lighter, but just as essential note, meet our cover star Constance Tipis. She is one of four women behind Double Dee’s, a unique lingerie store that saw a gap in the market especially for women with bigger bust sizes looking for comfortable but still beautiful support. We know the struggle to find a good bra as regular sized women, so we applaud their effort in finding our bigger-busted sisters a fantastic solution.
We know you love your gym time, but are you showing your gym wear too much love? Answer this question on page 32, where we tackle the shelf life of your favourite fitness clothes. After that, we suggest that you whet your appetite a little and join us as we brunch and get some much-needed downtime at the whimsical and adorable Wasp&sprout café in Loresho. You won’t be sorry.
There’s not much to add, except to promise you that all your monthly favourites are greedily waiting for your eager eyes! We have you covered inside out, ranging from a delicious experience in blogger Musavi’s kitchen, a guide to fabulous leg exercises, a little advice on getting your voice across or those nagging fears you have about your love life, to how to really grow your hair and a foray into the world of fashionable leather handbags.
Well, what are we waiting for ladies?
