    I’ve known Lotte for five years – she was once my editor at ES magazine and I’ve watched in awe as she has achieved ever greater things, becoming Deputy Editor and then Acting Editor in Chief of ELLE, winning awards for her writing, moving into advertising, and then publishing her first book, How to be a Gentlewoman: The Art of Soft Power in Hard Times.

    Part memoir, part self-help book, it draws on a host of personal and professional experiences to detail how she found her inner confidence, a sense of balance and, ultimately, happiness. I loved talking to her for this episode – she was incredibly thoughtful and open, and made me think about so many things in a new light.

  • The Journey

    Everyone has their own unique journey and path to parenthood. There is often a lot to learn from other people’s experiences so we have decided to share the stories of some inspiring people we have met along the way. Today is with Lotte Jeffs. Lotte is an author, award winning journalist and former deputy editor of Elle Magazine. Many people have a complicated road to becoming parents and when you are in a same sex couple it is automatically less straight forward. We talk to Lotte about her experience, what she learnt along the way and being a career woman and a parent. Something many of us struggle with these days.
