So very you!

Syn­chronic­ity one of my favourite words and even more favourite ex­pe­ri­ences) came won­der­fully into play when we planned the theme for this month’s is­sue. With so much talk of in­di­vid­u­al­ity and non-con­form­ity in the air, ‘Ex­press Your­self’ seemed like the ideal mo­tif – and what, af­ter all, is Women’s Month if not a re­minder of the es­sen­tial value and power of fe­male self-ex­pres­sion?

There has never been, nor will there ever be, another you. You, with your unique gifts, quirks and pas­sions, your very own way of lov­ing, kiss­ing and car­ing. You with your freck­les/ bumpy nose/ child­hood scar/ cute catch­phrases/ curly hair/ crooked tooth/ gor­geous (not su­per­model) body! Or, in the words of Dr Seuss, surely one of the wis­est writ­ers ever: To­day you are you, That is truer than true There is no one alive Who is youer than you! From sex to style, beauty to be­liefs, let’s cel­e­brate that youness of you, as we – Live the life.

Fill it with GLAMOUR!
