With this third lockdown, we're reaching what feels like the hardest part of this pandemic, and many of us are feeling increasingly isolated and despondent. Our mental health is suffering and it can often feel like we are losing our grip on the lives we led pre-COVID. In short: this is one of the most challenging times many of us will have faced.
This is why we're launching The Grazia Support Bubble; a series of online and social events that will give you the tools to dig deep and keep going through the next few months and beyond - or just serve as a much-needed pick-you-up. They will introduce you to experts in their fields; and our hope is that they help bring us together when we need it the most.
Look out for a line up of IG Live, IGTV and Zoom-based panel events on everything from mental health and life advice, parenting, dating, making friends, fashion, TV and film, home renovations, careers advice and money management.
We can't speed up your nan's vaccination, or get that weekend away with your best friend back in the diary any quicker, but hope we can help, inspire, entertain, distract and inform you over the next few months, just when you - and we - need it the most.
Upcoming Grazia Support Bubble events:
Fifteen Grazia readers will get the chance to bring their biggest wardrobe quandaries to Laura, our Fashion News and Features Director, and Sophie, Senior Fashion Market Editor, via Zoom. Whether it’s a dress you love but don’t know how to style it, or a trend you want to get involved in but aren’t sure how, just send a photo of the item in advance with your problem explained, and Laura and Sophie will give you their personal styling tips and advice on how to wear it with confidence.
You will be able to submit one style dilemma/ question in advance via the online form.
This event will begin at 7pm.
4th March 2021, 7pm: How To Navigate The Panic Years, With Author Nell Frizzell on IGTV
It’s the life stage journalist Nell Frizzell has identified as ‘The Panic Years’. In her new book of the same name, she explores that tricky period of transformation defined by the myriad of decisions we make - about partners, holidays, jobs, homes, savings, friendships – and all of which are impacted by the urgency of one decision that’s impossible to take back: whether or not to have a baby.
Now, with the pandemic upending our lives in countless ways, it’s become even more challenging for many of us. Join Nell for an honest, upbeat chat on how we can navigate through: from how to discover who you are and what you might want from life, to how to know if you're making the right decisions. Hosted by Grazia’s assistant editor Emma Rowley
This event will begin at 7pm.
