Our mission at womanandhome.com is to keep women informed on the subjects that matter to them, so they can live smarter, healthier and happier lives. We publish expertly researched buying guides, in-depth features and the latest shopping news and deals across fashion, beauty, health and wellbeing and lifestyle.

Every day our editors examine global events and curate a broad range of stories that inform, inspire and excite readers. Expect a mix of grown-up celebrity and royal news, as well as informative, no-nonsense health and wellbeing features about subjects like the menopause. We’ll keep you abreast of relevant medical breakthroughs, and myth-bust around emotive topics like dementia or cancer. Worried about your waistline? We seek out internationally renowned experts to give up-to-date advice on dieting and weight-loss plans, and world-famous chefs to delight with their delicious and healthy recipes. 

That’s not all. We also aim to inspire your holiday plans with safe travel recommendations both near and far. Looking to redecorate or invest in some new tech for your home? We have you covered there too, with our army of fastidious reviewers reporting on the best household gadgets you can buy. And if that wasn’t enough, we also filter through the latest fashion and beauty noise to offer you advice on the trends you’ll actually want to try - that are flattering as well as stylish.

Meet our team

Our editorial team has decades of extensive experience in the women’s lifestyle media sector. They have worked at some of the leading publications in their field. 

Kerrie Hughes
Kerrie Hughes

Kerrie is the Editor of woman&home.com. For seven years previously she was editor of Future’s world-leading design title Creative Bloq, and has written for titles including T3, Coach and Fit&Well on a wide range of lifestyle topics. 

After a decade of working in retail, Kerrie went back to education at the age of 27, graduating with a first-class honours degree in creative writing three years later. Her career in journalism began soon after, when she secured a job as a staff writer at Future Plc. In the 14 years since, she has worked her way up the ranks, gaining a wealth of digital experience along the way.

As a woman&home reader and the website's editor, Kerrie’s main purpose is to ensure the brand delivers high-quality, relevant content to help enrich and improve women’s lives – a responsibility she feels hugely passionate about.  

Outside of work, if she manages to find a spare minute around her three young children, geriatric dog and activity-obsessed fiance, you’ll find her either throwing a barbell about at Crossfit, with her head in a good thriller novel or building one of the latest Lego ideas sets.

Aleesha Badkar
Aleesha Badkar

Aleesha is acting Beauty Editor at woman&home, where she looks after the beauty content. Previously she was deputy editor at My Imperfect Life, where she was also responsible for the beauty section - from reviews of carefully tested beauty products (vitamin C, retinol, foundations - you name it) to the best skincare advice. 

Before that, Aleesha was shopping writer for woman&home and gained an AOP awards nomination after working on the news team. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 and has since worked with a number of brands including Women's Health, Stylist and Goodto. 

When she’s not testing new products, Aleesha spends her time soaking up the newest bestsellers and Netflix releases, exploring different wines, attempting new languages and has been known to be a bit of a jet setter (with a penchant for business class) after spending a year living in Madrid.

Caroline Parr

Caroline is Digital Fashion Editor for woman&home, and has been a fashion writer and editor for 10 years.
After graduating from the London College of Fashion, she has spent the last decade tracking down and writing about celebrity outfits, covering events ranging from the Met Gala to the King’s Coronation.
She has an encyclopedic knowledge of brands, but always likes to know about new and under the radar labels. She’s originally from Liverpool, and outside of work, her great loves are leopard print and her lively but adorable cocker spaniel, Ghillie.

Health editor Grace Walsh
Grace Walsh

Grace is the Digital Health Editor at woman&home. She's a health journalist with over six years experience writing and editing for UK publications and has covered (almost) everything in the world of health and wellbeing with bylines in Cosmopolitan, The i Paper, GoodtoKnow and more.

After graduating from the University of Warwick, she started her career writing about the complexities of sex and relationships, before combining personal hobbies with professional and writing about fitness. Everything from the best protein powder to dating apps, the latest health trend to nutrition essentials, Grace has a huge spectrum of interests in the wellness sphere. 

Outside of work, when Grace isn’t in the gym, cycling, or running, you’ll find her sussing out the city’s latest coffee spots or experimenting in the kitchen.

And while she’d always rather pick up a barbell than go to a yoga class, she believes that the best exercise is the one that you enjoy the most - and that wellness looks different for everyone.

Tamara Kelly
Tamara Kelly

Tamara is the Digital Lifestyle Editor at woman&home. A highly experienced homes and interiors journalist with a career spanning 20 years, Tamara has spent the last 17 years working with the style teams at Country Homes & Interiors and Ideal Home. It’s with these award-winning interiors teams that she gained a wealth of knowledge and honed her skills and passion for shopping, styling and writing about every aspect of lifestyle and interiors.

With a keen eye for the latest interior trends, there's not a lot she doesn't know about home decor – whether it’s what colour we should be painting our living rooms next season, or if the latest 'must-have' buys are actually worth investing in.

A true homes and interiors expert, Tamara has served as an ambassador for leading interior brands on multiple occasions, including appearing on Matalan’s The Show and presenting at top interior trends events such as the Autumn Fair and Spring Fair.

Caitlin Elliott

Caitlin is News Editor for woman&home, covering all things royal, celeb, fashion, beauty and lifestyle. Caitlin started on local papers and titles such as Cosmopolitan, Now, Reveal and Take a Break while studying for her Multimedia Journalism degree.

She also worked in Fashion PR as a Press Assistant for Arcadia's Topshop before becoming a part of the Now team. Caitlin went on to add the likes of Woman, GoodtoKnow, WhatToWatch and woman&home to her writing repertoire before moving on to her current role.

When she’s not writing about the next unmissable show to add to your to-watch list or delving into royal protocol, Emma enjoys cooking, long walks and watching yet more crime dramas!
