Be the author of your life

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.  The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.  ~Sylvia Plath

Summer sun, something’s begun!

It’s almost that time of year… and we’re not just meaning when we start to bask in the glorious sunshine of summer, or start smelling of sunscreen and icecream!

It’s almost time for the Bella Summer 2012 edition!!

You will want to grab a nice cool glass of “me time” set yourself up on a towel in the backyard (don’t forget the sunscreen) and relax on your holidays while reading some great articles on relationships, travel, fashion and more!

Also meet our high-school sweethearts (insert a nice “ooohhhh”) now engaged.. read about their unique love story!

Bella Summer 2012… release date 1st December!!  If you don’t live near a newsagency that stocks Bella (firstly ask them.. why not?) you can subscribe to Bella here.

Dreamer… nothing but a dreamer?

We all dream… and we aren’t talking about the kind you have when you’re asleep.  We’re talking about the dreams that linger in the back of our minds in between the “what ifs” and “if only”‘s.  The dreams that you may keep to yourself or declare loudly that one day…. just one day!  The difference between a dream achiever like Jessica Watson or someone else (whose name we may never know) is the drive and ability to be a “go-getter”!

In this edition of Bella you can find out which one you’re more inclined to be.  Not to be just content with that though… read our 5 top tips to turn your inner dreamer into a go-getter!

The only place where dreams are impossible is in your own mind.

Spring Fling… Why not?

Spring is about new things right?  The sun is shining and love is in the air… so it may be tempting to jump into a relationship that hasn’t quite had a chance to bloom yet.  In Bella Spring 2011 our Bella Man talks about Spring Flings.  Why not give into our desires for an instant relationship or surcumb to the pressures of having a boyfriend?  Read why not….. from a guys perspective!  A chance to have a sneak peek into how guys think and what advice our Bella Man can give to avoid a Spring Fling heartache.

Some people think that love is just a feeling

So they fall out of love as quickly as they fell in

Some people think that love is just a game

But they’re the ones who always seem to end up getting played.

Katherine’s Hope

The summer of 2011 will be remembered by many people as a time of devastation and great loss.  In her home town of Grantham,  14 year old Katherine certainly experienced the pain and witnessed the tragedy that was the ‘inland tsunami’.  However, January 10th 2011 has also become the day that life taught Katherine an invaluable lesson… one of bravery and hope.

Read her amazing survival story of when the wall of water hit.  Be inspired by her recollection of events during that day and how she now uses her story to bring encouragement and hope to other young women.
