The Cocktail Twist You Need To Know

Is there anything in life that embodies British summer more than a glass of Pimms? Aside from sand, sea and fish & chips, I think we’d struggle to come up with a more iconic concoction. And I for one, have fully indulged in my fair share of the fruity summer cocktail already this year. Served in a generous jug and traditionally topped with strawberries, cucumber, mint and lemonade – the cocktail embodies everything we love about the sunshine-soaked months, as it’s a naturally sharing, sociable drink that tends to accompany a weekend filled with laughter, great food and good company.…

How to Alleviate Stress Even When You’re Super Busy

I am in awe of women today. Absolute awe. A peek into just one industry - the blogosphere, shows a community of hard-working, conscientious and driven women who are utilising the tools of the digital world to create their own fully fledged businesses. And in other industries - women are pushing forward in their careers, all while completely bowling others over with their sassy fashion choices and social lives to rival Carrie Bradshaw. We live in an age where women are doing it all and succeeding (massively) in everything they set out to do. What a time to be alive, eh!

Our MINI Adventure: A Beach Stay-cation in Aldeburgh

As much as I love my home, when you live, breath and work there – sometimes, you just need to get away.

You can jump in the car, hit the open road and see where the day takes…

Why We Should Choose Fairtrade for International Womens Day

What does the term ‘Fairtrade‘ actually mean? It’s not a test, don’t worry. But when we were asked that question at an event last week, I’m slightly embarrassed to say that my mind went totally blank. I remember covering Fairtrade at school and appreciating its efforts in making sure that farmers in developing countries were paid fairly for their produce. However that’s pretty much where my knowledge stopped. Naively, I just assumed it was a small initiative that you could search out and buy into if you were so inclined. I guess I didn’t really appreciate the scale of how Fairtrade…

Lets talk about Glam Glow

Okay so I’m not usually one for hyped up products. I tend to take a step back when everyone is raving about something – why, I’m not sure. So I suppose this is the reason I’ve never previously tried Glam Glow. Because everyone seems to love them and my cynical nature has held me back from trying them out. But I regret this a lot, because without sounding too cliche – I’ve been missing a skincare trick. Originally formulated to help celebrities, actors and models achieve camera ready skin, Glam Glow was only made available for retail in 2011 –…
