I don’t know about you but I’m smiling from ear to ear with this weather we’re having. While we haven’t quite reached boots weather yet, our jumpers can definitely see the light of day again! And on that note of change, I’ve stepped into the editor’s heels (well, I’m a loafers girl really) at Woman This Month and am having a ball putting the pages together.
Being the month of keeping up appearances, we’ve got you covered on the wardrobe front with a hot line-up of ideas on how to add a touch of Christmas to your look.

Take the seven principles of Bushido and restore a pinch of peace into your life and step into the new year with a balanced outlook.
