Rebecca kindly opened her heart to us to help other women who might be experiencing the worst symptoms of the menopause. She often felt very alone and very far removed from who she used to be -and she’s determined to help other women know they are going to be okay. Society doesn’t talk about the reality of the ‘change’ often, but recently it has been in the press a lot so here’s hoping that the conversation has begun.

I would say it seems odd to think about Christmas while sipping on cocktails and topping up our tans, but let’s face it, summer’s a washout. It’s been raining for weeks… but, nevertheless it is sort of nearly Christmas, at least in mag land. In August, we start thinking about our Christmas ideas. By Christmas, we’re over at Mother’s Day.

Christmas stories…We are looking for any stories around the Christmas theme. Perhaps this will be your first Christmas with a long lost family member or your first Christmas since someone you love passed away. It might be your first Christmas alone, or maybe you love spending Christmas alone, or abroad, or both! Maybe you’ve lost weight since last Christmas or stuck to your new year resolutions in 2017. ANYTHING festive, get in touch today!

ZeldaGrazia (Large)While I’d never be brave or bold enough to lapdance myself, it was incredibly enlightening and interesting to work on this story. Kristine kept a diary throughout her time as a stripper (while studying for a degree at the same time) and her observations flipped between amusing and heartbreaking.

But with mounting debt, more students are turning to strip clubs as a means to get through university. As Kristine explains, it does no favours for your self-esteem but is hard to give up because the money is easy and plentiful.

Out in this week’s Grazia. If you’d like to share your secret way of avoiding debt, please get in touch today.

Thank you!

GraziaTheOne (Medium)As we get older, life gets more complicated. The chances of being the first person your boyfriend / girlfriend ever loved, are pretty slim. But what happens if he’s still in love with his ex? Then you’re in a pickle. He says he loves you, but she’s still hanging around like a moth to a light and you’re pretty sure you’re never going to feel like a priority. It’s a tough situation and one that Sam wanted to explore with Grazia in order to help other women in her position. As Sam said to us when we started working together, she can’t be the only woman going through this.

 

Grazia delved into the subtle disappointments Sam feels every time she sees her mother-in-law, who always ‘accidentally on purpose’ calls Sam by her son’s ex-girlfriend’s name and still has framed pictures of the happy couple adorning her walls. What’s Sam to do? She hasn’t got the answer, but we think Sam is absolutely lovely and we hope she finds a way to feel more loved in future, if not by Jack, then by someone more deserving.

Here at PhoenixFeatures.com we’ve had the honour of working with Siobhan over the last few years. We share a love of the image of the Phoenix – Siobhan named her charity the Phoenix Project and over at www.siobhanpyburn.com Siobhan is helping fellow victims of childhood abuse come to terms with their past and let go of any feelings of blame. 

Siobhan is a true heroine. Her father spent her childhood abusing her and convincing Siobhan that she was somehow responsible for the abuse. It took Siobhan a long time to realise that she was not to blame. Her father was convicted of his crimes and Siobhan now holds her head up high – a shining example to not only other victims but to anyone who’s ever considered what it is to be a good person.
Siobhan shared her story in a few magazines, in her quest to reach as many other victims as possible. Here she is in New! Magazine. You can read more here.

Here we have three gorgeous brides letting us in on what they were thinking on their wedding day. Firstly Clare, who lost a lot of weight and nearly her life, in the run up to the day. Her wedding signifies a time when life started to get a bit easier and we think she looks absolutely blooming lovely! We also interviewed Charlie, who married young and had a hunch that she was making a mistake, and Becky, who marred a man before realising she was gay. All three of our brides showed great retrospective wisdom and honesty. And as always, Reveal made the story look super! Read more
