FRESH STARTS AND NEW BE­GIN­NINGS

Herworld (Singapore) - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

Happy 2016! For many of us, a brand-new cal­en­dar rep­re­sents the chance to look ahead with a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and the best in­ten­tions.

This year also marks a new be­gin­ning for me – an ea­gerly-awaited re­turn to full-time work. I spent the rst decade of my pro­fes­sional life in women’s mag­a­zines, and the se­cond as house­wife/free­lance writer-editor. In late 2015, when I was ready to em­brace a full-on ca­reer again, there was a va­cancy at my favourite mag­a­zine. So I jumped right in, feel­ing like the luck­i­est woman in the world.

Her World is not just my favourite mag – it’s Sin­ga­pore’s dar­ling too! We were re­cently voted Over­all Mag­a­zine of the Year* and Women’s Mag­a­zine of the Year*, while our on­line por­tal, Her­world­plus.com, re­ceived the Women’s Dig­i­tal Me­dia of the Year* award. Thanks for your sup­port – we’ll con­tinue to make Her World as fun, stylish and rel­e­vant as pos­si­ble for you.

Our mis­sion this Jan­uary? To set you up for a great year with the best fash­ion, beauty, life and love hacks.

Up­date your wardrobe in­stantly with rain­bow stripes, ab­stract an­i­mal prints and deep blue (3 Clas­sics Get Re­ally Cool, page 92). Then throw on a pair of chunky heels (page 70), and you’re all set!

Get to know Sin­ga­pore’s style stars – e-tail­ers, hair­dressers and inuencers, in Meet the Her World BFFs (page 98).

Make 2016 your good hair year – over­come frizz (page 196), then pimp your ’do with braids and bows in Too Cool for School (page 190).

All you sin­gle women, dis­cover Who is the 2016 Sin­ga­pore Man? (page 216). We asked 85 lo­cal guys what makes them tick, and what they think of your ca­reer, so­cial-me­dia habits, and per­sonal groom­ing (even down there!).

And since we’re all food­ies, do check out three up-and-com­ing culi­nary geniuses and their must-eat cre­ations in The New Mas­ter Chefs (page 238).

Here’s to a won­der­ful, in­spir­ing and fullling year ahead.
