We host a national conversation about fashion, cooking, fitness, TV, work, celebrities and life. You can find it in magazines at lunch breaks, on mobiles on the train home and on tablets on lazy Sundays in bed.  It’s a conversation that started nearly 100 years ago, with the launch of Good Housekeeping and has since covered every topic from fashion to fitness, gardening to gossip. 

All the while, our writers and editors have built a deep relationship with an audience who thinks, acts and feels just like they do. It’s why the world’s best-loved brands trust us to introduce their products and ideas to their customers. 

We have, and will always entertain and give people an escape from their day. As a business we are committed to providing this on our audience’s terms – on any format, any device and at any time. 

But more than ever, we believe that Hearst plays an important role in people’s lives. We reassure and advise. We empower and inspire. 
Above all, we believe in the power of Hearst and all of our brands to give our audience confidence.

To sign up for that marathon, and turn up at the starting line. To cook that three course meal for the parents-in-law. To speak up in that meeting and not back down. Confidence to wear that dress, and know it looks great. Confidence for millions of people to live the life they want to live.
