Confidential 5 Things we learnt while putting together this issue…
There’s a whole bunch, and they definitely include those earrings!
1Old-world loving rocks
Humour, courtesy, caring – turns out the elements that make for a great relationship today are pretty much the ones your parents might have cited a generation ago. For more, read the delightful ‘Love lessons from women who write romance novels’. Sigh.
2There’s a pink lipstick for everyone From blush to neon, it’s one of the happiest hues of all – and it’s trendy, too. See page 52 for inspiration.
Looks really, really aren’t everything
Are you amazed at all those people photographing lattes at your morning coffee spot? Then you’ll love ‘The Instagram diet’, in which Molly Young spends a week eating only photogenic food. Talk about empty kilojoules – and going hungry for appearance’s sake! We’re going to give it serious thought while we eat our not-very-photogenic tomato soup.
It’s time to shut down that word
‘Slut’. Now there’s a toxic word if ever there was one – a get-together of the four ugly dwarves: Judgemental, Destructive, Hypocritical and Sanctimonious. Please read ‘The word that hurts us all’ and join the Unslut Revolution!
Big bling is back
… And just in time for party season. So be warned: you may want everything on our ‘Pretty large’ page.
