There 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 focused on transition and when we take a closer look at this month’s cover star – the incredibly talented Laura Whitmore – we are inspired. She’s got years of experience interviewing the biggest names in music, and today as a popular TV host, the Irish beauty has appeared in Strictly Come Dancing as well as previously hosting I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! NOW! on ITV. For the past five years, Laura’s braved the snakes and the spiders as she brought us all the jungle gossip. She’s now gracing our televisions once again embarking on her new adventure hosting the latest reality T.V show Survival of The Fittest on ITV2. Yes we all love Laura and with all this mind you can only imagine how thrilled we are to have Laura 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! RECYCLE Andrea x PLEASE NOTE: Reproduction in whole or part without written permission is prohibited.
