Hard to be­lieve that Oc­to­ber is here, right?

Healthy Woman - - WELCOME -

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?

Happy Read­ing!
