Don’t worry, this photo is not my new look for the Welcome page… It was taken at my first official outing since returning to Livingetc from maternity leave, at a fundraising breakfast at Great Ormond Street for Kiss It Better.

The Kiss It Better charity (part of GOSH Children’s Charity) raises money to fund research into the causes of children’s cancers, and was the brainchild of Livingetc’s acting editor Carmel Allen as she nursed her baby, Josephine, through cancer at Great Ormond Street. Nine years on, and Jojo is a tall, eloquent and beautiful young lady who held an audience of magazine editors and glamorous PRs spell-bound as she gave her first-ever speech.

It was lovely to see them both, and a great opportunity to don a feather boa and comedy sunglasses, and step into the Kiss It Better Photo Booth… to blow a kiss, of course!
