hen I originally moved into my first office, I taped a picture to the side

of my computer that read: “Your Chance to Live What You Love”.

Every morning and every evening that inspirational motto is present at

the edge of my vision and in my heart’s sub consciousness. Now, as I sit writing

my next editor’s letter for Close Up, I smile and remember that message as it

has become my reality. Close Up was born as a magazine with an inspiration to

help you make the most of life. So, there were two goals for this magazine. One:

to present a snapshot to our areas of how far we have come since 2007, when

“local magazines” was a relatively new concept. Two: our second aim was to

highlight the fashion, beauty and celebrity mandate and bring this straight to your

doorstep. For the latter, and in our quest to give you a creative mix of content we

have for this issue dreamed up the ultimate cover star – Jamie Oliver. The internet

goes without saying has changed the way we live, and I have effortlessly grown

to realise that my i-phone remains my loyal ‘friend’. I carry it from room to room.

It’s the last thing I check at night and the first thing I grab in the morning. Always

actively seeking out brand new content through social media and realistically

more likely to crowd source information from our social networks than to ask an

expert. It is this way forward and it is these things I’ll keep in mind as we expand

more and more. One of the many pleasures of editing this magazine is that this is

a magazine that has always been able to encompass literature and living as well

as interpreting style and trends. This month – as always – we remain true to that

legacy. Enjoy this issue, enjoy the month and enjoy finding a message that will

make you smile and become your reality. Hopefully it is within the pages of Close

Up and when you do, let me know! I would love to hear from you.
