    And just like that, in the blink of an eye, we find ourselves at the end of yet another year, 2014. Before weve had time to count all the blessings weve had in the past year, and to revel in all that we have experienced in 2014, its already time to get into the winter-festive mood. The day the calendar strikes December 1st; we shift into full-on holiday mode. Tinsel, carols, gingerbread, you name it; we're going overboard on it. There's just so much about this season that makes us feel warm and gooey inside, from spending time with family to the spirit of generosity.

    Weve got a months worth of cheer for you, starting with our Christmas Gift Guide, which is packed with great finds for everyone in your life, to party dresses, and hairstyles and Christmas Bazaars you should visit. I also had a chance to speak with Nelly Karim about her new gig as judge on So You Think You Can Dance.

    Also this month we have the honor to interview four exceptional women, who have excelled in their fields, its a truly inspirational article. Read about Hala Bassiouni, Yasmine Khamis, Heidi Belal, and Deena Fadel on page 20. We delve further into Hypnotherapy, which is all the rave; to features on aiding in weight loss, and dealing with your fears.

    We've filled this issue with a winter wish list for you - it's packed with so much more.

    May your holiday season be filled with love, laughter, and memories that will last forever. The New Year brings new light and hope for us all, and it stands before us, like a chapter of a book that has yet to be written.

    See you in 2015.

  • Prima Ballerina Nelly Karim can tell if someone is a good dancer or not in 3 minutes flat. Which is pretty intimidating when shes standing in front of you You can usually tell how somebody walks - you see how supple his or her body is. The So You Think You Can Dance judge and former leading light of the Egyptian Ballet talks to Cairo East Magazine about her newest role as a judge on the show.

    Please tell me how you came to be part of So You Think You Can Dance judges?

    I was asked to join, and of course I knew the program from MBC4, and that it was a huge success. I had previously thought it would never be successful in the Arab world, I thought where would they find all these dancers, most of the professional dancers are male dancers who have successful careers abroad.

    What are your impressions of the level of skill you have seen so far in the competition?

    All of the dancers are different; they come from various backgrounds, and schools of dance. What is interesting is the choreography on the show, which makes the dancers look l ike they re professionals. The contestants are 3 Egyptians, 1 Palestinian, 2 Syrians, and the rest are Lebanese.

    Have the competitors faced any obstacles in entering the competition, i.e. from family?

    No, none have, except for one dancer who only made it through the trials. His father was against him dancing. All of the other contestants families are very supportive towards their ar t.

    What types of dance are included in the competition?

    Contemporary dance, Hip-hop, Jazz, and Street dance, there is no ballet as it can be very difficult. I enjoy watching the different variety that the dancers perform. What makes it so special is the choreography, which makes all the difference. The choreographers are from the UK, USA, Morocco and Sweden.

  • What is most likely to impress the judges?

    There are a lot of things; the first thing is you must be charismatic. This is a show, so you must have a bit of everything, technique, f lexibil ity, charm, and looks.

    Why would a contestant receive negative feedback from the judges?

    I try not to be too judgmental with the contestants, all of them are young and all are eager to learn. They are very happy to be on the show, and all are very keen on improving. Also music plays a big part, it s the whole vibe of the dance, so I m not particularly looking at their footwork. Plus they learn a new dance every 5 days, so they put a lot of effort. I t s hard to get a per fect results, I look at each dance as a whole.

    Do you get on with any particular judge?

    We all know how hard it is to get up on
