I am over the moon, or possibly beyond. Since I was 16, I dreamt of writing for Cosmopolitan magazine. To be honest, I wanted to do a lot more than just write for Cosmo; I wanted to be its Editor, defining trends, writing about relationships, travelling luxe and working 16 hours a day.
So imagine my jubilation when the editor of Cosmopolitan Middle East accepted my pitch for a travel feature. I had planned a trip to Prague, and thought it’d make a great piece for a lifestyle publication. She approved, I undertook the trip and wrote my feature, printed it out to edit (the old school way), and sent it over for approval.
Her reply: “Fab – thanks! Love it.”
It is one of the most precious compliments for me, one that I will cherish for a long time. Anyway. So, lo and behold, the feature came out this month – a four page spread! Huda Kattan is on the cover, which means that A LOT of people are going to buy this particular issue. A home run indeed.
And I am delighted to share the feature, sent by a very old friend from Canada. Trust me, it has been pure magic as far as this piece is concerned. Unbelievable things have happened, and I am ever so thankful.Cosmopolitan-Middle-East-February-2017
