Your page featuring mums and daughters dressing alike made me feel nostalgic. I remember my own mother having breezy summer frocks tailor-made for herself, and a mini version for me. I must have been all of seven or eight at the time. I wonder why I never thought of doing the same with my daughter. I’m off to buy us some material now, thank you very much!
I like the range of women you introduce your readers to. Reading about the ladies in your last issue, their life’s work and goals, provided food for thought. It was delightful to read Maya Jashanmal’s reminiscing about her years in Bahrain and Jodie Baker’s travels exploring our world and her passion for photography. Both were motivating. Lastly, it’s a relief that Bahrain has specialists like Dr Iris Brune Erber who can help women overcome some very private, yet grave, physical concerns. I’m sure the local flavour of your interviews serves to be all the more inspiring to the women of Bahrain.
Got something you want to get off your chest? Congratulations, commiserations and remonstrations all welcome. We’ll carry the best ones each week.
WIN, WIN, WIN!
The spring season is the time when many major brands launch their new fragrances. For its latest offering, French brand L’Occitane went back to the very source of the beauty of Provence. It wanted to find the force that breathes life into plants – the very plants that become its precious ingredients. Every trail it followed led to the light. It seemed to shift, its colours pulsing and rippling. Three perfumers worked on the creation of Terre de Lumière: Calice Becker, Shyamala Maisondieu and Nadège Le Garlantezec. “It really was a journey for us. Each one brought her own world, her own emotions. This fragrance brings together, in perfect harmony, so many sensations that come from our experiences. That’s what gives it so many facets,” they say. The fragrance truly is akin to a breath of Provencal air in a bottle. For a chance to win the 90ml eau de parfum, worth almost BD40, keep an eye on our social media page to participate.
