We’re all about being ‘body happy’ and this week we’ve dedicated our issue to the cause, cramming our pages with sensible (rather than extreme) diet tips, clothes to flatter every shape and ‘real girls’ like Lena Dunham, Kim Kardashian and our gorgeous cover star Daisy Lowe. We’ve been keeping a watchful eye on our social media platforms and it would seem you are loving the latest issue as much as we are. Here are your reactions so far - don’t forget to have your say by tweeting us at @Grazia_Live!
‘Grazia Tuesday's’ is close to becoming a full-blown phenomenon, with many of you expressing joy and relief after receiving your latest copy. Clodagh Pickavance (@clodagh_p) tweeted: “It’s a Tuesday which can only mean one thing: it’s #Graziatime… hey ho, hey ho, it’s off to the shops I go! @Grazia_Live.” and Sandra Foster (@sandrafoster1) wrote: “Love Tuesdays #GraziaTuesdays #Graziaday… delivered to my door!! #subscription. “
Katey Chalton (@K_Charlton) was eager to get her paws on our recently launched iPad edition, which is causing quite a stir in cyber space: “Forget about going to the shops, I’m all about reading Grazia magazine on my iPad @Grazia_Live”
There’s no doubting Daisy Lowe is looking smokin’ hot on our cover this week and loads of you took to the Twittersphere to own up to your girl crush. Hannah Lou (@hannah_lou) tweeted: “Reading Grazia as I sup my Lemsip (because I’m hard-core like that) One thought: @daisylowe is a babe. Great pix. #grazia”. Gavin Moon (@The GavinMoon) agreed: “@daisylowe you are too hot,looking so good on the front cover of Grazia!” and Emer Cronin (@EmerCro) came over all TOWIE sharing: “@daisylowe looking reem in grazia #LushLowe”
Others of you vowed to use Daisy’s killer curves and healthy attitude as inspiration this New Year. Jodie Latham (@JodieLatham) tweeted: “LOVE @daisylowe Grazia shoot. Best ever body inspiration, saw her eat a burger last night and yet she looks like THIS!!” Laura Chesworth (@Laura_C90x) would like a bikini body to rival Daisy’s: “@LinseyRead @tonikenny @fayetoner I wanna be Daisy by summer, guys whose with me??”
Our feature on the plus-size fashion bloggers dubbed the ‘fat=shionistas’ was another cause for celebration. Life of O (@Life_of_O) tweeted: “Loving the newest @Grazia_Live issue, especially the plus size blogger feature! 2013 is the year for body acceptance! X”
Finally moving on to some grittier topics Jo Hall (@1JoHall) was impressed by our ‘I’m a 20-something divorcee’ piece: “Refreshing to see @Grazia_Live tackling a very modern family law issue #divorceinyour20’s.” and Jackie Valentine (@cupidhearts1) tweeted: “In shock @Grazia_Live states a woman in India is raped every 21 minutes. Just shocking.
The issue only hit newsstands yesterday morning and there’s still plenty of time for you to get involved and have your say at @Grazia_Live or on Grazia UK’s Facebook page. Happy reading!
