Letter from the Editor

We made it!

Kim Kelly
Managing Editor

The mayhem of Christmas is over, the kids are back at school where they belong, we are stony broke and the gym is a distant memory!

So, who’s ready for the ‘New Year, New Me’ promises? Those vows to lose a stone, take up meditation and become a better person? Nah, me neither, January is a bad time to start anything!

Happy New Year from the Local Women team – and Brian Kennedy who we bumped into over the holidays!

But, while I continue with my bad old ways, I still like to read about those people who are much more motivated than me.

If you are thinking of taking up a sport this year, why not take your lead from Anita and Tanya Cheung from Lisburn who have been pole dancing their way to fitness? Forget any notions about sleazy strip clubs, these girls are true athletes and say that since setting up their pole studio they have never felt better. They want more women to get involved and pole dance their way to fitness. Sounds like a plan!

This month we met a very inspirational lady who is bravely sharing her story with us. Hannah Jamison has battled with acne most of her adult life, but rather than hide away, she is embracing it. The Belvoir woman started a blog charting her journey with her skin as she prepared for her wedding. Through this, and with the support of an ever growing online community, Hannah has learned to accept herself – just the way she is. Hannah is now comfortable in her own skin and not only has she shared her story but she has sent us her wedding pictures – and, as you’ll see, she makes the most beautiful bride.

As well as Hannah’s wedding this month we have lots of local weddings for you to browse. So, whether you are looking for love in 2018 – or like me you just love looking at the gorgeous dresses – check out our stunning brides...oh and grooms too of course!

Don’t forget we print all your wedding pictures absolutely free of charge and we just love sharing your special day – so send us in your pictures and let us spread the joy!

And speaking of looking for love – you might recognise some of the ladies in new TV show Beauty Queen and Single. Local Women models Gemma Garrett, Amira Graham and Ashleigh Coyle are set to hit our screens this month in a new show charting their quest for love. And knowing these girls – you can guarantee that the path of true love will not run smoothly. I can’t wait to see them in action!

I hope you enjoy reading our new magazine - and I hope you have a wonderful New Year – and let’s all make a resolution not to make too many resolutions.

Until next month.
