Are you ready to lose weight?

“Interview with Ros Astaire from Weight Expectations” We have reached the moon, managed to solve countless quantum physics problems, yet weight loss is a subject that is a mystery to a lot of us and what has been written about it could fill the Albert Hall!!

A Truly Inspirational Publication!

A Truly Inspirational Publication! “If Audrey Hepburn started a magazine it would be Darling” These days getting investors to back an idea is very difficult, getting anyone to believe in yet another woman’s magazine I would have thought near to impossible!

I said yes but I meant no!

Does age make us beautiful

Does age make us beautiful

A sense of humor, is to me, paramount to get through life’s bumps and scrapes, and therefore it was no real surprise that our Facebook post yesterday  got so many thumbs up. It epitomizes women’s ability to laugh at themselves, under the age old rule of, “as long as I say it its fine!” As we get … Continue reading
