Made to measure

Having something made to measure is a pretty special thing nowadays. It's not necessarily just a question of affordability. Globalisation and advanced manufacturing have changed the way things are made and distributed forever, and modern commerce makes the notion of individual tailoring anything but the norm. Traditional tailors are considered artisans of their trade, and...

The land of nod

Most of us don’t find it so difficult night to night to gain our entrance into the land of nod. But, when there’s trouble afoot in our lives, the entrance can seem to close up pretty quickly. It goes without saying at the moment that people suddenly have a lot more on their minds. Whether...

High definition 

We live in a modern world where the usage and definition of words can shift according to new forms of expression, advertising or colloquialisms. Sometimes it can be refreshing to investigate the true definition and origins of words, if nothing other than as a means to provide some anchorage to what is 'real' and unchanging...

Keep it clean

Most of us like to think we live pretty clean lives. We’re much more conscious of managing and reducing the obvious health ‘pollutants’ in our lives, such as nicotine, alcohol, saturated fats and refined sugars.

Tried and tested

Most friendship circles have a friend who’s particularly thorough. We’re talking about the mate that does detailed research about a product - whether they’re buying a new coffee machine or a car. Conscientiously, this person will not only look at the reviews, they’ll know how economical a product is (evaluating the initial purchase price against...

Just my cup of tea

Having a cup of tea in bed is up there as one of the great British institutions. But, while the right cup of tea can set you up for a great day, a dodgy cuppa has equal potential to get the day off to a decidedly wonky start. As every tea drinker worth their spoon...

Vitamin sleep

Never miss a beat on your daily dose of vitamins? Probably not as, for people that take vitamins, vitamins tend to be a strict part of their daily routine and wellbeing habits. And that’s fantastic, nothing wrong with that whatsoever. Except when you consider that the same people can still - mistakenly - consider their...
