    Betty Magazine was started recently by Charlotte Jacklin and her friend Hannah Burgess in order to fill what they saw as a void in Women’s magazines, namely the things they liked to wear and do. They aim to be your new best friend and to change the way you consume your information on fashion, music, culture and lifestyle. As they say themselves, “no weight loss or diet tips here, we don’t want to play on people’s insecurities:  our philosophy is for people to embrace who they are and celebrate it.”

    Sounds good doesn’t it? So you can imagine how pleased I was when Charlotte asked to contribute to a photo shoot they were doing. Together we chose a selection and when all was finished, we had made the front cover!

    It’s a great shoot from a great magazine. Don’t just take my word for it, Lauren Laverne has been waxing lyrical about it too. You can read the entire magazine for free online here
