You’ll notice lots of changes in this month’s edition as we decided it was time to take our own advice and brighten up our look.
The homes, travel and fashion pages are snazzier than ever and we’ve introduced a new page in beauty, Celeb Spot, where fashion and beauty editor Fernanda Langhammer gives tips on how to copy a star’s style. The Parenting section’s also undergone an mini makeover with Dr Jinan answering readers’ questions and a new page dedicated to tech kids.
Keep your eyes peeled for more developments in the coming months and we’re evening planning a relaunch party to ring in the changes a bit later in the year.
While our designers have been burning the midnight oil formulating our new look, we’ve been out and about meeting inspirational ladies. Rasha Al Najjar spoke to Puja Tiwari about battling climate change and Sahar Albaharna and Zahra Ghanbari told Behnaz Sanjana how they are aiming to empower women in the workplace.
For our motoring feature, I headed to the Bahrain International Circuit to meet some of the lady marshals, who are part of the world’s largest group of female race officials. I also got to try out some lovely new motors and chatted to biker Anne Al Zayani who left me with a severe case of Harley envy.
Heading into the Holy Month of Ramadan, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite places to enjoy Iftars and Ghabgas and there are lots of tips on staying healthy while you’re fasting.
Happy reading, I’d love to hear what you think of our new look.
