WIN­NING LET­TER

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - LETTERS -

I am al­ways ea­ger to buy my Marie Claire for its in­spi­ra­tional sto­ries of beau­ti­ful and strong women and, of course, the lat­est trends. Re­cently, while preg­nant, I en­dured a ter­ri­ble case of preg­nancy sick­ness that had me look­ing and feel­ing down in the dumps. I had no mo­ti­va­tion to get out of bed and the un­read copies started pil­ing up, un­til one morn­ing my hus­band left them on my bed in a des­per­ate at­tempt to stop my feel­ing sorry for my­self. As I gin­gerly be­gan turn­ing through the pages, I caught glimpses of how I as­pired to feel and look once again. By the end of that ses­sion, I felt such a surge of glam­our that I de­cided to put on my bright­est red lip­stick and, the fol­low­ing day, sported a brand-new hair­cut. This was when I started to feel a lit­tle bet­ter.Thank you for al­ways aim­ing to be such a mar­vel­lous cel­e­bra­tion of beauty on so many dif­fer­ent lev­els. – Kaven­dree Muthu-Kurten wins a Ther­aVine ham­per
