LIVE 24-SEVEN -COMMENT WELCOME TO L I V E 2 4 - S E V EN MANAGING EDITOR

Not long now! The countdown to Christmas Day has officially begun and whilst we excitedly shop for those we love and prep for the feast, it's also a time for giving to those in need. Susanna, one of our Cotswold magazine contributors, has written about her 'reverse advent calendar' this Issue. Each day she buys something for a particular charity and then hands it over on Christmas Eve or before if she's organised – which she is! She chose a local dogs’ home and placed toys, food and treats in a box – a truly lovely idea. It goes someway to balancing out the indulgence of the Christmas season.

For this issue I interviewed the hugely popular Courtney Act, who many will know from RuPaul's Drag Race or from winning Celebrity Big Brother; the host of numerous TV shows and sell-out global tours, Courtney, or rather Shane, talked in-depth about his career and the changes he's witnessed and been part of, as well as sequins and racing the Jaguar I-Pace in the ultimate drag race for charity! It's chalked up millions of views on YouTube in addition to raising money for great causes. We also chatted at the Attitude Awards and dressed as Courtney, it was easy to see why lad's mag FHM voted Courtney as one of the top 100 most beautiful women in the world, not bad for a man named Shane!


Talking of sequins, take inspiration from our party edit; I love sequins at any time of the year, but at Christmas they definitely go hand-in-hand with any invitation! There're also some lovely gift ideas in our third and final gift guide, as well delicious options and events to get you in the spirit of the season. I'm excited by the arrival of coveted make-up brand Pat McGrath in Selfridges Birmingham, perfectly timed to make us look our event best. I've been a fan of the brand’s Mattetrance lipsticks for years; check out their products for true colours, great pigments and exquisite packaging.

As we wave goodbye to 2019 (what a year it's been), it's a time to reflect and be thankful for what we've experienced and received. I'd like to say thank you to my fabulous team, our superb clients and you, our loyal readers, the heart of Live 24-Seven. Whether with family and friends, soaking up sun on a beach or playing party games at home, I hope you have a special and peaceful Christmas.


With love and thanks Katie & team xxx
