here is ample reason to love every edition of Close Up Magazine but

this one, is one of my favourites as it celebrates the start of Spring

at every level. With longer and warmer days just around the corner

and with Mother’s Day and Weddings making an appearance this issue is

truly “blooming’ with advice and inspiration and getting you ready for the new

season. This edition is all about transition from current fashion and beauty to

fresh ideas to inspire your home.

I am eager to fill you in on all the exciting features we have this month (look out

for all our competitions that you can win right off our pages) and I can honestly

say that this edition has been a true delight to bring together and lots of fun.

I mentioned that it was an edition focussed on transition and when we take a

closer look at this month’s cover star – the inspirational Katie Piper. In the last

nine years she has rebuilt her life and is now a TV presenter, businesswoman,

mother, wife and head of The Katie Piper Foundation. Her mix of intelligence,

humour and candid practicality on getting on with her life following a horrific

acid attack ensure nothing but success and determination for this beauty. Yes

we all love Katie and with all this in mind you can only imagine how thrilled we

are to have Katie gracing the cover of our March edition.

Today I write my editor’s letter about an hour before we go to print. This is

late even by my standards and my wonderful team who ensure the magazine

meets its print deadlines on time have been keeping me on my toes. What

would I do without them? The editor’s letter is almost the last thing to be

written for an issue and I am not quite the deadline queen I claim to be when

it comes to my own words. But, thank you everyone, readers, collaborators,

advertisers and of course the Close Up team. All have made this magazine

something to be proud of. Enjoy the issue, its destined to appeal to our loyal

readers and new.

Have a great month!
