Pu far as I'm aware, there are two core things needed in every individuarslife To help them achieve maximum success, they are inspiration and motivation. It's no wonder there are muses around to inspire us when needed. I try really hard to find something in everyone to help inspire and motivate me daily. And fottu nCitely for me, actress lu pita Nyong'o and our cover girl Charlotte Skyla Wells have just joined the list of incredible women who inspire me. These are the likes of Michelle Obama Oprah Winfrey, Bey one~ Knowles, Sandra Bullock, Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade Ekeinde. The greCit thing about these two extraordinary ladies is that they both had insecurities especially with regards to their looks. So to every young, insecure lady reading these at this moment, you shou lei read our cover girl's interview (p36). If like most of us you've been working hard to get riel of that stubborn stomach fat, then you shou lei read James article on houw to get riel of belly fat.(p74). So, sit back, relax an c1 enjoy the issue as much as you can. Don't forget to write to us after. We appreciate your feedback. let us know what you have enjoyed an cl what you'd like us to do differently.

Are You Feeling Depressed ? Here's What To Do ..... . Treatjng depressjon may appear very compHcared and jnvolved; bur ;r can be a very renewjng Jjfe experjence. if you don't know wttar ro do; you need ro seek help so that you do nor make ;r worse than ;r already ;s. Don't worru the nps Jjsted below ron help you..

Spend less Time In Doors A great tip th Cit can help you fight depression is to notspen d so much time in doors. When we're depressed we tend to isoiCite ourselves Cit home. The more time you spend by yourself indoors, the more depressed you'll get. Try forcing yourself to go outside once in a while.

Get Organized Get your person allife in order. When you suffer from depression, even ordinary tasks can get overwhelming. Get organized using small, easy

to complete goals and you can keep from getting bogged down in the everydCIV duties th Cit can keep you from working on your depression and can even make your symptoms worse.

Accept Criticism If you have medical depression you should anticipCite that many people won't be able to understand it. MCISt people think that depression is just like being really sad but true sufferers know th Cit this is not the truth. If people say things like ''just chin up"toyou, try to realize that they mean the best and just ignore it.

Avoid Destructive Mlndset If you are struggling with depression try not to get yourself caught up in the destructive mind set that the world is out to get you. This will only make you despair more and can do nothing but make your depression even worse and deeper than it was in the first place.

beating yourself up if you don't meet impossible standards you have set for yourself. Negcltive thoughts will cause depression to become an end less cycle.

Create A list Of Happy Thoughts When you are experiencing a moment where the depression is less grCPJe you should take out an otebook, diary or journal. In this book you should write a list ofth e things, memories, people and places that you love the most. When you are feeling exceptionally sad take outthis list and read it.

live A Fulfullled Life Although depression is often temporary, there are many cases where it can last for a lifetime. Because of this fact, you must learn how to live a fulfilling life, even when you are feeling depressed. This will entail different things for different people, butth e key idea is to live normally. If you have never felt depressed before in your life, that doesn't mean thCit it can not statt quickly and un e:xpectedly. Depression can have very late stage onsets so don't write it off even if you are in your forties or fifties. It can also strike both genders in almost equal amounts. If you are a parent, and you statttofeel depressed try to find awCIV to stCIV awC~Vfrom your children. If they are older. you can leCPJe them home alone, but if they are younger children, you should have a ciCISe friend on standby to wCitch them.

Challenge Negative Thoughts In your banle against depression, challenge your negcltive thoughts. One of the b'tproduc:ts of depression is putb路ng an egative spin on how you see yourself, your future, and situations th Cit you encounter. If you are like many people who suffer from depression, you are a perfectionist and hold yourself to standards that are impCISsibly high. Permit yourself to be less than perfect and quit

So as you can see treating depression is not quite as bad as it appears. It is very involved in terms of research and asking questions, but it is wotth it in the end to live healthier and happier. With the above tips in mind, you should be able to get the treatmentyou need for your depression.

FEEDBACK, Lay it on the Line.

Image courtesy of [marin]

The most successful businesses make it a regular part of conducting business, by asking their customers and suppliers for feedback. They want to know how they can improve both their products and services. They want their customers to find it a pleasure to work with them. They have a goal of delighting their customers. The only way they can do this is by asking for direct input. The encourage complaints. You should do this too. Ask your friends for feedback about you. Are you boastful? Are you fun? Are you shy? Are you easy to get along with? This isn't about finding our flaws or bashing your ego. This is getting a good look at who you are. I've already discussed taking your inventory to get a better look at yourself. Now, it's time to bring in others to help you. You can do this informally or formally. You can ask your friends to let you know what your three greatest strengths are and what your three greatest weaknesses are. You can ask them what they like most about you, or least about you. You can ask them open-ended questions and let them give you as many or as few attributes as they like. Ask them if they could change one thing about you, what would it be.



The point here is not to hurt your ego or put you down. The point is to see how others see you. You may not even be aware of what you[gire doing. And you can't change your behavior until you become aware of it first. Maybe you like what you hear and don't want to alter certain things about you and that's fine. But at least you know. Maybe you won't hear any surprises from your friends. But maybe you will. And once you become aware of the messages you are sending off, you can decide if those are the messages that will attract the kind of person you want. I just ran into a co-worker in the break room. I said, 'Why are you scowling?' She said. 'Was I scowling? I didn't mean to! 'She wasn't even aware of how she looked, which makes sense. I've had similar comments made to me. We can't see our own expressions, so maybe we're not projecting how we feel. There is only one way to find out. Ask. This takes some guts. This is not an easy step. However, just like the most successful businesses that encourage feedback, it is well worth it.


Ways to Relax

QUICK Before a Big Date So you haven't been out on a date in awhile and you're nervous that you'll do or say the incorrect thing. Or perhaps your last date was such a disaster that it should have had a rating 5 on the weather channel. Getting nervous before a date is understandable. Will they be attracted to you?

Few things are more painful in life than to be betrayed by someone you love and trusted. It happens frequently and maybe the only thing worse than the betrayal, is being blind to the fact that it is happening. In order to avoid being blindsided by your boyfriend, here are some signs of a cheating boyfriend you should be on the lookout for. Just remember, that some of these things could actually be signs of other things such as depression or too much stress at work, so while it's important to be observant, it's also important that you don't jump to conclusions. It's also important that you aren't just projecting your own insecurities onto your boyfriend's behavior. If you've been cheated on in the past, or have cheated on someone, you'll be far more likely to see cheating where there may not be any. Just make sure you're honest with yourself before you go off accusing your boyfriend of anything.

l lf

your boyfriend starts avoiding time with

you, it's possible that he's either seeing someone else or at least has someone else on his mind. If he used to be anxious for the times the two of you could get together, but now he seems almost indifferent as to whether or not he even sees you, this could be a sign that there is something going on.


It may be a cliche, but it can still be accurate, is your boyfriend suddenly working late a lot? If so, he's either bucking for a promotion or he's doing some promoting of his own.


Has he suddenly started taking more care with his appearance? If he used to let his hair grow out or dress like a slob and suddenly he's going in for a trim and buying new clothes there is definitely something going on. It could just mean that he's growing up and realizes he wants to present a better image of himself, but it could also be a sign of trouble.



Depending on how sneaky you


get (remember, the more sneaky you get, the harder it will be to come back from even if he doesn't catch you), you could check out the history on his computer or look at his emails and text messages. I actually don't recommend these things, though since if your relationship has so little trust it probably isn't worth much at this point anyway, you might be better off just moving on.


Another thing to keep in mind is your boyfriends past relationships. If he has admitted to you that he has cheated in the past it's highly likely that that is the way he is and he will do it again. Of course, even honest people make mistakes and that might be the case, it might have been a one time slip up and he shouldn't be condemned forever because of it. But for a lot of people cheating is just the way they are and if they did it once they're likely to do it again. If you want to find out whether or not your boyfriend is cheating on you, it's usually pretty easy to spot the signs of a cheating boyfriend. Just make sure you're ready to deal with whatever you find. Unless you are just suspicious by nature, if you think something is going on, it probably is.

How SooN Is Too sooN

Necessarily, when you are part of the dating world, you will need to confront the question of precisely how soon you should let things move to a more physical intimate level. This is just a gentle and polite way of saying you will need to decide when the time is right to have sex. While this should be a rather simple thing to figure out, especially for adults, it can actually be a bit tricky. First of all, even when you're considerably past the age of consent and, possibly, heading into early middle years, there's nevertheless a right time and a wrong time to move forward sexually. It actually doesn't matter how enlightened people in the 21st century think they are, men still have a certain style of taking in a woman who will leap right into bed with them, no questions needed. If this describes you, don't be too surprised if a lot of guys are not calling you back. When you allow yourself to be used in this fashion, chances are you're giving in MUCH too soon and these guys are just having a quick release with you. This brings us to the First Date Rule. Agreeing to sex on the first date is a huge no-no. The only way that this is acceptable and probably not damaging to the budding relationship and your reputation is if the man is someone you've known for a very long time and friendship has transitioned into romance. In all other instances, the first date is completely too soon for such intimacy. Kiss all


you want, but keep it on simmer. Are you hoping to find that the second date is a more acceptable time frame to have sex for the first time with someone new? You should hear the Second Date Rule if you truly believe that. The second date is also too soon to hop into bed. Keep in mind that this is particularly true if you're just getting to know someone new. Two dates is not enough time to know someone THAT well. While many people appear to cleave to the Third Date Rule, that may even be a bit too soon if you really want this to sour into something fantastic. Too many people tend to do things backwards in relationships. For example, they meet at a bar or a party or wherever, spend some time drinking and talking, head back to his place or hers, and then have sex. Most of the time, they don't even know each other's last names. Also, these encounters typically turn into one night stands, which are never favourable when it comes to having a true relationship. If a real relationship is what you[gire trying to find, give it some time before you give into your hormonal desires. Let the connection between the two of you grow and take time to really get to know each other. No, it doesn't have to be YEARS, but at least give it time to feel 100 percent right in every way. There's much more of a chance for a successful relationship then.

,arlotte Sky/a Wells SPEAKS EXCLUSIVELY TO


'I went through a stage in my life where I expressed •

myselfthrough my appearance.... .. Unfortunately I wasjudged by how I looked and not my personality.'

Photographtr: John A.ourkt (www.johnroul']

Model: Charlotte Skyfa Wells Make· uP Artist: Nikki Tipping Fashion Stylist(s): Favour and Funmi



emember stepping out of the train station on a slig~tly cold but sunny Thursday afternoon and laymg eyes on our gorgeous cover girl for the very first time. I had only ever seen pictures of her. I can't believe I told her 'Your Facebook pictures don't do you any justice.' Thinking about it, I was too quick to judge because she looked absolutely stunning in every picture that was taken of her during the shoot. Respectful, thoughtful, considerate, hard-working and always quick and willing to prove anything. We had the honour of having the photos taken by John Rourke. The amazing photographer kept pushing, but Charlotte was a professional. Totally stunning. I remember some guy on the street shouting 'You're a beauty.' Of course she is. One funny moment was when an elderly man said to us 'Dear God, what are you doing to this young girl?' It was a brilliant photo shoot.

The thing about people with potential is that, they never tend to talk too much or scream for attention. They just get it. As tiny as she she looks, Charlotte is loaded with potential. She's only 19. I like that sentence. 'She's only 19'(1ol). 1feel so much joy whenever I see young aspiring teenagers. It's a great thing to see them thinking of their future and how to be a better person considering the state of the society we live in now. Not only is she into modelling, the young star is a musician too who plays the piano, cornet, guitar and the trumpet. In an exclusive interview, the youngest cover girl we've had thus far speaks to us about adolescence her family, her struggles and her delight. Ready ' to be blown away? Read on ....

Question: Tell us about you Answer: I am a single19 year old living at home with my parents and sister in Nottinghamshire. I am a musician and play the piano, cornet, guitar and the trumpet. I am an assistant principle cornet player for Thurcroft Welfare Brass band. I am currently employed as an apprentice doctor's receptionist at a local GP surgery. I also have a passion for classic cars and car shows; I own my own classic mini called Ray. I am an animal lover and adore cats. My own cat is called Benny and I have a rabbit called George.


Q: Have you always wanted to be a model?

A: I have constantly looked at models in magazines, TV and watched Next Top Model since I was younger; they have always been so beautiful and inspirational. I am reasonably new to modeling, however I have been lucky enough to work with many experienced photographers, make up artists and clothes designers. I never thought I would be lucky enough to become a model, but modeling has brought out a new me. A new confident person who has met some incredible friends and it's something I am glad I started doing and I hope to continue modeling and start looking for some work down in the London area in the future. Q: How did your modeling career start?

A: I started modeling by helping a friend out with his portfolio for hairstyles, it was my first shoot and I was so nervous but loved every minute of it. I then decided to look for some more modeling work to boost my confidence and been very lucky and worked with all kinds of lovely photographers covering a wide range of styles from crazy makeup designs to beauty and swimwear. Q: What effect has modeling had on you?

A: A huge boost in my confidence I feel happier with how I look and I find it easier to talk and meet new people. It has also introduced me to some amazing new people who have become great friends and I have also managed to help others gain some great opportunities. When 1 am modeling it makes me so happy and makes me feel a lot better about myself and when my family look at the photos and call them beautiful it really makes me feel happy and proud. Q: What has been your most painful life experience? A: I went through a phase in my lifetime where 1 expressed myself through my appearance and 1 had crazy black and red spiky hair with dark panda eyes! Unfortunately, I was judged by how I looked and not my personality and I was constantly knocked down on how I looked because I went through this stage. I eventually got out of that phase, but my confidence and self esteem was so depressed and I did not think I was anything particular to look at, or beautiful. Family and friends slowly began to build my confidence and made me see I was not like all the others said I was. It is also another reason why I started modeling, to show people who have not had it easy in school or with peoples' opinions of how they look to not let it lower their moral and to do whatever they want to do, and be whoever they want to be.



Q: What sort of man would you like to date? A: A kind and caring man who does not mind if I turn up with no makeup on, hair all back but still calls me beautiful. Someone who I can call my best friend, but also be my partner. Who I can go out and do cute little things with but also enjoy nights in with a film and a takeaway. Someone who I can always rely on when I am feeling a little down give me a cuddle and make me forget everything bad that's going on. Q: What genre of music do you listen to? A: I listen to a broad range of music, but I have always been a fan of the heavier music such as Slipknot, Parkway Drive and a Day To Remember. I do enjoy listening to some brass band music and composers such as Paul Lovett-Cooper, who is one of my biggest inspirations and idols. I also enjoy listening to the club music. Q: Who is your favourite person alive?

A: My families are a big part of my life, and my friends, but I must say that it is my mum and dad for everything they have done for me. Helping me obtain a good education, pushing me to get good grades and they have been a great support. My dad drives me to band twice a week, and also to all the concerts and competitions that Thurcroft takes part in.

Q: Who is your role model?

A: My role model is Ann Ward who won cycle 15- America's next top model. Through my past experiences with the stage I went through and comments that were made towards me I gained some self-confidence issues. Over time, I've managed to build my confidence up again. Ann is a role model to me because she was mocked throughout the school for her height and her slim figure which also caused her to develop confidence issues. I watched the whole of cycle 15- America's next top model, and she was such a lovely person who was also extremely beautiful and because of this she won. She is a huge inspiration for people who have been bullied about how they look or have self-confidence issues! Q: What's in your beauty bag? A:AII my make up, face wipes, hair equipment, etc. I usually take in food and drink. Healthy option of course! Q: How does it feel to be on the cover of VM? A: I am really honored to be afforded this opportunity to be on such a superb magazine and cannot thank you all enough for affording me this chance.

Vh1 Personal Trainor and Our Health and Ufest).ie Editor, james jebb On:


"How can I get rid of my belly?" It's a commonly asked question with no easy answer. however. I am going to do my bestto give an answerth Cit will help you get a flatstomach and all importantly sustain it. Nutrition, exercise and psychology will determine wheth eryou can I05e weight and give yourself some defin irion .It's the basic's that are most important and u nfottunately in this day and age we seem to hCPJe forgotten the basics. We hCPJe become obsessed with Fad diets that are not c:ondu cive to a healthy lifestyle, however I have spoken aboutth is topic on several occasions, so th Cit will beth ere last mention for a while, promise. In the mod ern world we have a fixation with both starchy Carbohydrates and fats. We seem to h CPJe two types of people where Carbohydrates are concerned, those who will avoid 'Carbs' at all costs and many who use them as the focus of their meals.l can almost guarantee that the majority of people reading this does not know what is considered a portion of starchy 'Carbs'. Two new potatoes or one crumpet or half a bagel is a portion, these are things usually used for meal i.e. breakfast or dinner. On top ofth is many people will eat 'Carbs' th roughoutth e d ;Jy, with sandwiches, breakfast bars or cereals, plus sugars we take in are all Carbohydrates. They will be stored and if we are not physically active enough, we begin to build up stores and therefore gain weight. So it is important to eat 'Carbs' but understand how much we are eating and if you don't eat 'Carbs' you will soon become very lethargic and run the


risk of having low blood sugar levels. This will make you feel dizzy, light headed and generally run down. Fat is a scary word for many people, especially those trying to lose weight. Fats just needs to be understood rather than feared. We need them in our diet and in the modern world they are not the biggest reason for weight gain. The one type of fat to steer clear of is Trans-fats. Our body can not use these fats efficiently and they are therefore stored and difficult to burn off. Understanding fats will help you when looking at the fat content, don't be afraid of it, but look forwhat fats the food contains. Avoid spread and 'low fat' products because they often have fat su bsritutes thatwill provide a similar effect to fat, i.e. high amounts of sugar. (If you missed it in the last issue, check out last month's column for more on the topic of 'low fat' products) Make sure you include lean meats in your diet and vegetables are more dominant in your diet that starchy foods. Also dairy is good, but be aware that dairy will contain some fat and sugars so again, be CI'Ware of the amount you consume. I find a food diary really high lights what you're eating and though there are d rCIWbacks, it tends to provide a good visual for people. Much of how will be surprised at what or percentage of each food group they consume. I suggest you give it a try and see what you find, I bet you think you eat differently to what you actually do and don't forget the small snacks that you probably don't usually take into account. It m;Jy beth at you alw;Jys have a sandwich for lunch, so maybe change that for soup a few times a week. These subtle changes will make all the difference in the long run.


The next step to getting rid of your tummy would be get exercising. Look for high metabolic exercises this will heIp you burn fat, but also if exercises are targeted at the core will heIp you define your core mu sci es. Many people go to the gym with the best of intentions but often don't really push themselves to the point where they will see improvements. If working aerobically it is said that working at 70% of our maximum heart rate for longer sustained periods will burn fat, however, there are several studies to support the use of interval training, working at 90% at the active phase and 7 0% at the rest phase will provide greater benefits. 1h is means you have to be discipi i ned and push hard in the active phase. This said I am not discrediting continuous training it has its benefits and uses, I simply suggest using other methods also. Many Tread mills and other aerobic equipment all ow you to input your details and will calculate the intervals for you, so you can rea II y work hard with out worrying about manually changing settings. Resistance training should also be used, sorry if I'm generalizing, but many women are scared of resistance training and weights. This is usually because they believe they may become very bulky and Iess feminine. Rest assured Iadi es you do not produce enough testosterone to produce such drastic changes to your body shape nor are you on a body builder's diet, which is very strict and disciplined. 1h ere are some great core exercises you can do such as: squats using a weight rei evant to you, you will work your legs, gluteus and core (I egs, bums and tu ms). Make sure you complete a set of reps that will work you to exhaustion. This goes for any resistance training, you need to push your body to the point where you can't push anymore. Try doing the same with lunges they will work similar areas to squats. Make sure your exercise is balance, many people focus on their abdominal s, but do not do much with their lower back, back extensions, good morning and dead lifts are a few exercises that will focus on your back. AI so try some body

weight exercises they can be just as challenging and provide great results and with the added bonus that no equipment is needed. When exercising challenge yourself, many people will com pi ete basic sets, but try adding 2 or 3 exercises one after the other without rest. This becomes one set, then rest between sets. Fi nail y and probably the most important is psychology, ultimate! y if you are determined and have the desire to make a change you will do it and do it well. Keeping focus on your goals and the reasons you want to achieve them, this will keep you motivated. AI so, be organized and make exercise habits, i.e. go to the gym at the same time on the same days so it becomes routine and you don't even think about it anymore. AI so group exercise can be a good if you struggle to stay motivated, it becomes social and also you don't want to Iet friends down so are less likely t o put off going. AI so make sure you en joy the exercises if you then don't change them. It's human nature to avoid things we don't Iike and on that basis it is easier to stay motivated if we enjoy it.
