One of the (many) many joys of work­ing at Good House­keep­ing is the in­stant ac­cess to all our won­der­ful ex­perts. If I need a sup­per idea, our hard-work­ing Cook­ery Team has hun­dreds… And usu­ally a few tempt­ing morsels for me to taste, as well. Want to know which wash­ing ma­chine to buy? Our team of trained testers, work­ing in the pur­pose-built Good House­keep­ing In­sti­tute, has put all the lat­est mod­els through their paces. Need to know how to get past the au­to­mated menu at the Call Cen­tre? Con­sumer Direc­tor Caro­line Bloor knows how to strike ter­ror into the heart of the ici­est bu­reau­crat. And this skill and ex­per­tise is all there for you, too. Ev­ery month in the magazine, and ev­ery minute of the day on good­house­keep­, we aim to keep you up­dated with ev­ery­thing you need to know, ex­actly when you need to know it.

Look­ing through the pages of this month’s is­sue be­fore it went to press, I was struck by how much more ad­vice we had man­aged to cram into an al­ready-packed is­sue: Stuck for what to wear to an over­seas wed­ding? Won­der­ing if it’s worth spend­ing £100 on a pair of ex­er­cise leg­gings? (No, by the way!) Be­fud­dled by stu­dent fi­nance? We’ve got all these so­lu­tions for you – and more. That’s why we’ve dubbed this our Ex­pert Is­sue.

As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve per­suaded our su­per-glam­orous Beauty Direc­tor, Eve Cameron, (you may have seen her pop­ping up on TV) to put to­gether an edited col­lec­tion of some of her favourite prod­ucts for our first-ever GH beauty box. We’ve ne­go­ti­ated a very spe­cial price, too. For just £35 – £30 if you’re a GH sub­scriber – you’ll re­ceive a pret­tily wrapped gift set that’s worth £128. See page 124 for more de­tails. This is a new idea for us, so let me know if you would be in­ter­ested in more spe­cially selected gift sets? And fi­nally, per­mit me a lit­tle bit of a boast. You may re­mem­ber a beau­ti­ful and evoca­tive piece in our Novem­ber 2016 is­sue called Ev­ery Scent Tells A Tale, writ­ten by Cho­co­lat au­thor Joanne Har­ris? The un­doubted qual­ity of her writ­ing im­pressed the beauty in­dus­try, too. It was recog­nised by the Fra­grance Foun­da­tion’s ma­jor Lit­er­ary prize at the re­cent Jas­mine Awards. Nat­u­rally, I was on hand to help with the cel­e­bra­tions! In a world where ev­ery­thing you could want to read or know is avail­able at the click of mouse, it’s good to know that there are some sources you can re­ally trust. See you next month,

‘Nat­u­rally, I was on hand to help with the cel­e­bra­tions after Joanne’s win!’
