We are delighted to announce the launch of our Christmas edition, packed with a wide range of articles on career issues, health and wellbeing, style and lifestyle. This month's edition includes another wide range of interviews with inspirational women - it has been great to get out and about and get to know the amazing things you are doing.

In You and Your Career this month, we talk to Nicky Harwood about her career as a painter - and include some of her stunning images of the vibrant and colourful cows she paints. We also include articles on how to activate your own Career Countdown to 2013 to kick-start your New Year and we continue our Influencing People theme from last month.

In You and Your Life, we talk to Lally Baker from the Brooke about their amazing work with donkeys and working-horses around the world. The stories of their "hands-on" work with some of the world's poorest communities is inspirational in revealing the massive difference that well cared for equines can make to the people living in such tough areas. We also share more benefits of Cleaning Up your Life - and the things you can discover down the back of your sofa as a result! In addition, we share some very funny stories about renting a property which will certainly make you smilel

This month's Woman of the Month features Rosa Parks - the black woman who sparked an end to segregation when she courageously refused to give up her seat for a white person on an Alabama bus in 1955. A really inspirational story of the positive impact one person can make! In our new feature, Vicky's Views, we start an ongoing series of interviews with a veterinary nursing student and her new life in London.

We share the benefits of Chia seeds in the month's You and Your Health section, where we also visit the wonderful and welcoming Embody Wellness centre in London - a great place to learn more about Pilates and Yoga and to indulge in a wonderfully relaxing facial or treatment. We also share some topical Christmas health tips.

In You-Nique, we feature Emily Cantrill's story of her beautiful range of locally sourced and fairly traded gifts - the background stories are really thought-provoking. We also share our thoughts on the colour "purple" and on what to wear this Christmas.

In this month's Women Around the World, Lisa Kujundzic shares her heart-warming and poignant story of life and traditions in Croatia - some beautifully written and visual images!

Whatever your own life or career passion is, we hope you will find all these stories as motivating as we do. They really do focus on the benefits of making the most of life! We really want to hear from you with your own stories or those of other women you think we should feature in our future editions. We wish you all a peaceful and very Happy Christmas and an inspirational New Year! Thank-you for all your support this year!
