Thank goodness for James Claire and his ‘Sweet Festivities’ article in the Food section of the December magazine. I had the whole family clan coming to stay over the Christmas holiday and so had a whole lot of cooking to do! And I’m not ashamed to admit I’m no where near domestic goddess status. So James’ article practically saved Christmas for my family.
I rushed out, grabbed the ingredients he listed and whipped up all of the items on the page to create an ‘Around the World’ themed spread. The recipes were easy to follow and the finished product looked near-enough like the photos on the page. And best of all, my in-laws were thoroughly impressed! You can’t ask for more than that. So a big thanks to the Woman This Month team for saving me and my family’s rumbling stomachs this holiday season! Collette, by email.
The Shopping Guide
I have to say I do love reading your Retail Therapy guide each month. It’s a great way to highlight the top places to shop, eat and visit each month and the December issue’s guide gave me some great ideas for what to gift friends and family members with for Christmas — so a big thank you!
Just an idea; it might be nice to include information about new restaurant openings, book launches and spa treatments, as we women love to hear about this kind of thing.

I like the inclusion of the new Get the Look page in the magazine. For someone like me, who has no idea how to dress themselves it’s a clever way to help me out! The December issue’s, spread was most helpful as I had a number of Christmas functions to attend and not a clue what to wear.
I particularly like how this page introduces me to new brands; for example I had no idea what Ciate was before, but now I own a number of different shades and have lessened my salon visits in the process. My husband is very happy!
