We are delighted to announce the launch of our February edition, packed with a wide range of articles on career issues, health and wellbeing, style and lifestyle. It's been great to get out there and meet even more of you this month. The opportunity to share your inspirational stories is what makes producing this magazine SO worthwhile.

Lots more exciting news about www.amiaonline.co.uk to come over the next few months - so do watch this space! We are definitely a growing community and it is great to share ideas with so many like-minded people from all walks of life.

In You and Your Career, we talk to Maria and Jenny from Falmouth University about their ground-breaking "World First" management qualification. We share a first-hand account of what life is like as an intern - we talk to Charlotte about the youth and schools work she is involved in and how much it inspires her. We also continue our series of practical articles to help you plan effectively.

In You and Your Life, we talk to Helen from Refuge about the practical and vital role they play in supporting women and children who are suffering domestic violence. We also speak to Selina from the wonderful Scented Narcissi on the Isles of Scilly. She tells us all about the beautiful flowers they produce, the benefits of buying locally grown flowers and the community basis of their organisation.

In our ongoing spirit of profiling and highlighting young/new talent, we interview Alima who tells us all about her passion for painting and drawing animals - you can really feel the passion behind her work and it comes through in the interview too.

This month's Woman of the Month is Lorraine Vasili - one of those modest, lovely people who spends her life cheering other people up. So this one's for you Lorraine - you deserve it! We continue with our new feature, Vicky's Views, as Vicky tells us how her placement at a London veterinary hospital is going. We're rooting for you, Vicky!

By popular demand, Eve Lofty continues to tell us her compelling account of life during the Second World War - and the useful lessons we can all take from those times. One of the things I love about our contributors and readers is that they span all age groups and many different countries - such a great thing to share ideas between women everywhere! In that spirit, we talk to Isabel from Madrid about her innovative accessories and her design ideas - very refreshing and striking.

In You and Your Health, we discuss the benefits of herbal medicine with Catherine and share simple beauty tips from Brazil with Laura. They both share lots of natural tips with us. We also hear from Dawn about her passion for dance and the health benefits dancing can bring to anyone of any age.

In Younique we look through the lens at Shady Olive's stunning photos and talk to Rachael at Marks and Spencer about their shwopping initiative with Oxfam and Joanna Lumley's role in their recent Shwop Shop. We also share some fun tips on identifying your own "wardrobe favourites."

We visit Bristol for the first in a 2-part article about this great city, profile an Art Garfunkel album you may not have played for years, share our Book of the Month and our views on what we like about winter. We also include a lovely recipe for moussaka and syllabub.

Hopefully, that's enough to keep you going - enjoy your month and Happy Reading!
