Slide

Sliding is fun.  Why else is sliding associated with some of our favourite pastimes. As kids, who didn’t love the big slide at the playground? And a love of sliding sees millions of people pack up skis and snowboards and fly off in search of snow each winter, or stay home with their sledges and...

Design house

What’s the appeal of a designer label? Designer labels are often seen as exotic, alluring and aspirational but, other than their marketing, what is it that makes people spend out so much more for the designer label price tags? In reality there’s often three things that set designer goods apart from cheaper mass-produced products. Better...

Be still

How many moments of stillness do you have in a day? We’re not thinking about sitting still when you’re working, watching tv or talking. We’re thinking about stillness in body and mind, sitting or lying still without occupying our mind with a task or visual data. We’re willing to bet you don’t have many, if...

Psssst…

There’s a secret to having a great day.  Not everyone knows about the secret, and we can even still have a great day without even knowing or understanding the secret. But, once we’ve been let into the secret, it can unlock change. The secret to having a great day is great sleep.  Only having first...

I woke up like this

We’ve all seen the gorgeously uber-cool people wear t’shirts emblazoned with this slogan or posted on their Instagram. It’s one of those attitude statements that does the rounds from time to time and is mostly used ironically - although for some narcissists, not always.

Our dads, grandads, step-dads and those who are father figures in our lives have a special place in our hearts and have an impact...

Be my guest

“People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but people never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou Hospitality is far from a dying art form. Many of us love opening our homes to entertain our friends and family. We spend considerable amounts of time and money decorating the reception rooms of...

Best forgotten 

Let’s face it, some days are best forgotten. Mistakes were made. Lies were told. Fear got the better of us. Things were lost... There are many reasons why we can wish for a day to be over and - on those days especially - bedtime can’t seem to come soon enough.  And isn’t the magical...

Shall we..?

How do you pop the burning question?
