Edinburgh: the perfect weekend destination

Weekends away. Remember those? I'm not sure if we did many, if any, of those planned weekend aways that you see in Hollywood movies or in ITV dramas just before Something Terrible happens, but we certainly went 'away' and it was generally at the 'weekend', something that we don't tend to do much of now. I say 'much of', I mean 'hardly ever, practically never', but when it does very occasionally happen, I was always think 'we should, nay, we need to do more of this'.

Work Hard/Play Hard: clothes that take you from winter through spring and into summer…

You want your wardrobe to work hard. No-one has a money tree growing at the bottom of their garden, so if you are going to part with your hard-earned cash, it needs to be on pieces that are adaptable, versatile and very, very wearable.

Foods and supplements to beat the January blues

UGHHH. January. I was doing ok at the beginning of the month when staying in, going to bed early and hibernating was what the doctor ordered after the excesses of Christmas, but the last two weeks of grey skies and rain has seriously started to lower my mood. So rather than ditch the family and book a solo flight to the Maldives I'm turning to nutritional advice, some great supplements and nourishing food....…

Be my (very stylish) Valentine

As January limps to a close, our thoughts turn to the new month - and its romantic heart: Valentine's Day.
