Straight-talking, informative and smart, womanmagazine.co.uk is the home of this week’s biggest celebrity news stories and talking points. As well as bringing you the most interesting showbiz news, we pick stylish fashion for savvy shoppers, highlight the need-to-know beauty products, and share the secrets behind shocking celebrity weight loss stories.

Whether you want to know the REAL reason behind that break-up, where to find a dupe of THAT really expensive makeup palette you’ve been lusting after, or what recipe will satisfy the hankering you’ve had for flapjacks, we have you covered.

Our informative, practical approach means we give honest reviews of the products you want to (or need to!) know about. But we also answer the health and beauty questions that play on your mind. Dieting and weight loss is important to you, so it’s important to us, too. Here you’ll find practical, thoroughly researched features, presented in a no-nonsense way that will help you shed pounds the healthy way. We talk candidly about anti-ageing beauty treatments and what does (and doesn’t) work too.

Meet our team

Our talented writers have been selected because they know the showbiz world inside out, are experts on the most effective diets and are brilliant at tracking down the best fashion and beauty buys.

Mariana Cerqueira, Senior Content Editor, News

Mariana’s journey started way back in 2015 when she joined as an intern, fresh out of the journalism MA she completed at City University. After six lovely months spent writing about food, celebrity news and family trends, she left to join a healthy food magazine – but you couldn’t keep her away for for long.

She returned early 2017, and has been enjoying working on women’s lifestyle content for busy women in the UK ever since. In her spare time, you’ll find her in the kitchen cooking for her friends.

Caitlin Elliott, Digital Writer

Caitlin is a Digital Writer covering celebrity news stories for CelebsNow.co.uk and Womanmagazine.co.uk.

Having set her sights on becoming a magazine journalist when she was a child, she undertook a degree in Multimedia Journalism. During her studies she enjoyed various interning stints at a range of titles including Reveal, Cosmopolitan, Take a Break and CelebsNow.

Two years after her internship at CelebsNow, she returned in 2019 to join the CelebsNow and Woman team for her first full time job in the industry.

Aleesha Badkar, Digital Writer

Aleesha has been with the team since summer 2018, but has been working as a beauty, health, lifestyle and entertainment writer since 2017. After completing an MA in Magazine Journalism at City, University of London in 2017, where she specialised in entertainment, she interned at a number of national titles including Women’s Health, Stylist and Harper’s Bazaar.

Following her degree she freelanced for Women’s Health, Stylist and Holland & Barrett’s Healthy magazine.

Lauren Hughes, Senior Content Editor, Features

Lauren is senior content editor covering inspiring and informative features for women. Lauren graduated from her masters in magazine journalism in 2011, quickly making the transition over to digital. Prior to working at TI, she worked in local media in Sheffield, before moving to London and interning at media companies such as the Press Association, Shortlist Media and Hearst.

After landing her first ever freelance feature for Cosmopolitan magazine, Lauren began writing for titles like Stylist, the Guardian and msn.com, before joining the team at Woman’s Own as a lifestyle assistant six years ago. When she’s not working, Lauren enjoys nothing more than jumping on the first train out of London and exploring its neighbouring towns and villages.

Amy Hunt, Senior Digital Features Writer

Amy joined the magazine’s features team back in 2015 after graduating from the University of Birmingham in 2015, before heading over to the digital team back in December 2016. Since then, she’s become an expert in the topics mid-life women want to know about.

Amy’s the go-to royal expert on the brands, with a particular soft spot for Meghan Markle – and her great M&S fashion buys. As well as the royals, Amy covers fashion, beauty, health and travel and loves finding out about the latest lifestyle trends.

On the weekend, you’ll most likely find Amy with a cup of tea in hand enjoying a new Netflix series – no Line of Duty spoilers please!

Sibelle Mehmet, Digital Features Writer

This is Sibelle’s first job since completing her MA in Magazine Journalism at City, University of London in the summer of 2019. Before joining GoodtoKnow, I previously interned at a number of national titles including OK!, Heat, Closer, Mother & Baby and The Times Newspaper magazine.

At the weekend you’ll find Sibelle on Oxford Street, keeping up with the latest fashion trends, or sipping gin cocktails at a music concert – because nothing beats live music!
