Hooray for AU­TUMN!

Prima (UK) - - Welcome -

There’s some­thing about the dap­ple of light through au­tumn leaves, slight damp­ness in the early morn­ing air and short­en­ing days that al­ways gives me that sense of new be­gin­nings. Per­haps it’s just child­hood mem­o­ries of go­ing back to school in the in­evitable over­sized uni­form and starchy col­lared shirt, but I al­ways get this feel­ing of an­tic­i­pa­tion and change. So I’m thrilled that this month’s is­sue of Prima cap­tures that same ex­cite­ment, with pages packed full of new fash­ion trends (think checks, tar­tan and tweed) and gor­geous make-up in plums and golds. And for your home, we’ve got the top 10 high-street looks to up­date any room in a flash (page 114). But, of course, au­tumn also brings back mem­o­ries of putting your feet up in front of the telly – es­pe­cially with the re­turn of The Great Bri­tish Bake Off. To cel­e­brate, we’ve got some amaz­ing recipes from the show’s lat­est book (page 98), and the most de­light­ful and heart­warm­ing fea­ture, Recipes Of Love (page 38), where women share their favourite dishes and ex­plain why they mean so much to them. I don’t know about you, but for me there’s noth­ing that stirs up emo­tions quite like the smell of a cer­tain cake or loaf of bread bak­ing in the oven. Our cover star Mel Giedroyc knows more than any­one about the power of bak­ing – it was in­ter­est­ing hear­ing her thoughts on the new Bake Off and how she’s fi­nally come to terms with no longer host­ing the show with Sue Perkins. I hope you en­joy the in­ter­view with her (page 8). And, in many ways, Mel’s fac­ing a time of change of her own, as she’s set to star in a London show. ‘Let’s do things we re­ally want to do and let’s try to do them well,’ she says. Wise ad­vice in­deed!
