I was so inspired after reading about the Iron Ladies in the February issue. Sometimes, in our culture, it seems women are lagging behind and not so encouraged when it comes to sport. However, seeing Hannah, Rana and Mariam’s achievements and reading their words encouraging other girls has given me the push I needed. I’ve been out on my bicycle for the first time since I bought it and I even managed to get my husband away from the games console to join me. Thanks and keep up the good work.
I loved, loved, loved last month’s ‘Get the Look’. I’m really not a girly girl and I’m always stuck for inspiration when it comes to going to posh events but the idea of teaming a jumpsuit with a tux is perfect for me. I might not be able to splash out on the gorgeous Naeem Khan sequinned version, but I’ll be keeping my eyes open for something similar. And the tuxedo jacket has already become a wardrobe staple.
Got something you want to get off your chest? Congratulations, commiserations and remonstrations all welcome. We’ll carry the best one each week.
Win, Win, Win
We’ve got a very special exclusive gift from those lovely people at Amouage to give away this month.
Blossom Love is the most recent addition to the luxury brand’s floral-themed The Secret Garden Collection. It reveals the romance of a perfumed secret garden where the light, sweet and delicate nature of cherry blossom nectar marries with rose to reveal inner boldness and a memorable heart caressed by the exotic sophistication of Ylang Ylang. This floral love story is embraced by the seductive allure of amaretto, tonka bean and vanilla before melting into sandalwood and cashmeran, to create an intense and enduring fragrant bouquet of memories.
After a strictly limited launch in February, Blossom Love will be available at Amouage stores this month and we’re giving one lucky reader the opportunity to be among the first to get their hands on a 100ml bottle, worth around BD100. Perfect for Mother’s Day – or for yourself!
For a chance to win visit Woman This Month’s social media pages and keep your eyes peeled for our competition. Good luck everyone.
