Londoner-turned-ardent-Barcelona-fan (and resident), journalist Gemma Askham, lets us in on the city's style secrets. The labels to shop, the Instagrammers to follow, the joy of jumpsuits, eschewing a bra if it doesn't suit an outfit...…

Family camping UK: Cool Camping: Kids tells us where to go

If you'd told me ten years ago that I'd ever seriously consider going camping then I would have assumed you'd been knocking back the sauce. As a Travel Editor who reviewed 5-star hotels for a living, I was used to the luxuries in life, but OH how time changes. No longer paid to do such things, which are now firmly out of my reach, and with a gaggle of children underfoot, I've started to think that - actually, camping, or to be more accurate, glamping might be alright. An adventure even. And considering that we actually slept in a tipi on our wedding night, two or even three nights would be quite fun. So, when I heard that a new book was coming out Cool Camping: Kids, listing the best, most beautiful family-friendly sites in the UK, I asked the Editor, James Warner Smith to share his top 5 places for sleeping under canvas this summer...…

Hot Hotel Review: Limewood, New Forest, Hampshire

Sometimes you just need a little luxe in your life. To be pampered, looked after and reminded that yes, actually, you really are rather fab. Which is why a night or two at Limewood, the luxury boutique retreat in the heart of the New Forest is exactly the kind of pep-me-up we all need……

3 new UK hotels for 2016

There are few things I love more than a gorgeous boutique hotel. They're almost up there on a par with my children (I'm kidding, I'm kidding...or am I?!) Which is why, I am extremely excited about the prospect of these three new beauties opening this Spring. Two (The Pig at Combe and The Painswick) come from bonafide leaders in the boutique hotel field, whilst the third (Thyme) looks so darn lovely, we are sure it's a classic in the making. And, what's that? An opening offer for one of them of £99 per night? Yup, it's too good to ignore.... …

Insider’s Guide: Corsica

I have just returned from a blissful trip to Corsica (as you will know if you follow us on Instagram) where the beaches really do feel like you are stepping into a postcard. This was our third trip – and certainly not our last. There is a lot to love about this island. The beaches, the weather, the scenery, the wine, the cheese……

How to…Pack like a Fashon Editor: Part 1

The holidays are here. And with them comes the need to pack. Have you mastered it yet? Or are you an over-packer (stuffing everything in just in case you need that fourth pair of jeans and three woolly jumpers in Greece in August. Excess baggage charges, anyone?) An under-packer (why oh why did you forget to bring anything whatsoever to wear in the evening, compelling you to wear that ancient sundress Every Single Day)? A last-minute packer (necessitating a crazed dash around the airport in search of knickers, books, SPF…pretty much everything)? Fortunately for our suitcases, we’ve assembled a team of seasoned travel pros and crack packers to tell you how it’s done. First up, GLAMOUR Beauty Director Alessandra Steinherr and fashion editor and stylist, Liz Thody.…

How to…pack for a holiday

Where are you headed this summer? Cornwall for two weeks of bucket and spade action? Or perhaps Ibiza for something a little more glamorous/hedonistic/hippie (*delete as appropriate)? Maybe you’re heading further afield or even closer to home. Whatever your destination, you’re going to need to pack for it. Which is where we come in….…

Insider’s Guide to Puglia

If you’re planning on going on holiday to Italy, you may be thinking of somewhere like Tuscany, the Lakes or the Amalfi Coast. But, if you want somewhere a little different, a little less well-known, but arguably as chic then you’d do well to consider Puglia.…
