Dear GH,

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR FEEDBACK -

I HAVE AL­READY briefly com­mented on your In­sta­gram feed, but I feel a proper let­ter is in or­der. I want to say how im­pressed I am with Good House­keep­ing lately, so much so that I am now go­ing to sub­scribe.

I haven’t bought mag­a­zines for years, be­liev­ing them to be a friv­o­lous waste be­cause they mainly pro­mote un­re­al­is­tic ideals of beauty while try­ing to sell you stuff!

But not Good House­keep­ing! Since I bought your Novem­ber 2017 is­sue with the amaz­ing swim­suit fea­ture, which had curvy mod­els in biki­nis, I was im­pressed! I re­mem­ber be­ing blown away that a mag­a­zine did that, and now with your April 2018 fash­ion fea­ture, Denim for You, I see that it wasn’t just a one-off, but an au­then­tic part of Good House­keep­ing’s wish to rep­re­sent real women as they re­ally are. I have to say I loved the mix of ages, colours and sizes of the read­ers in the denim fea­ture. It made me feel ‘ Yes!’ in­side.

I also love that you fea­ture strong and pow­er­ful women with heart like Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Wither­spoon and Oprah on your cov­ers – all of them have in­spired me to buy my copies of GH. I’m now sub­scrib­ing to GH, so thank you! You guys have essen­tially re­stored my love of mag­a­zines!

PS: I love your In­sta­gram feed too. It’s full of in­spi­ra­tion mixed with re­al­ity. Louise Hughes, Port Shep­stone (Louise wins a Ca­trice ham­per worth R2 000)

NOTE FROM ED­I­TOR: We’ve got a great sub­scrip­tion of­fer this month: 30% off the reg­u­lar price plus the chance to win a skin­care ham­per worth R560. See the de­tails on page 51.
