Give Jan­uary a break!

Friday - - Ed’s Letter -

As an Aries, 2014 is ap­par­ently go­ing to be a chal­leng­ing year. My horo­scope tells me it’s a bumpy but ex­cit­ing ride through to De­cem­ber with eclipses and pow­er­ful plan­e­tary as­pects putting the fo­cus on change and growth. Well, bring it on!

Af­ter two years in Dubai, I’m lov­ing the flu­id­ity and dy­namism ex­pat life in­volves, and can’t wait to see how the next 12 months pan out. I hope they in­volve lots of travel – I might even visit Bri­tain as seen on screen in our fea­ture on page 60; learn to cook bet­ter – I’ll start with the tasty-look­ing recipes from our Do­mes­tic Diva Sil­vena Rowe on page 66; and maybe even go for a trendy crop as fea­tured in our hair re­port on page 50.

Or per­haps I’ll just do ab­so­lutely noth­ing in Jan­uary ex­cept plan the changes I’m go­ing to make for the rest of 2014. Ac­cord­ing to the ex­perts there’s too much pres­sure to make New Year’s res­o­lu­tions at the start of the year, which will get bro­ken by the end of this week. In­stead they rec­om­mend mak­ing changes or start­ing a new regime in Fe­bru­ary. So that means I have another month to have fun! Read how, like me, to give Jan­uary a break on page 24 and let me know what you think of that and the rest of the is­sue. En­joy!
