Getting married is stressful enough without having to worry about your makeup. Follow our fabulous guide on how to achieve the perfect look.

Too much, too little, too light, too dark or just too over the top – wedding day makeup can be a fraught affair. You need to start thinking about your makeup and skincare as soon as you set the date.

Try This The Good Hour

Liz Coggins discovers the perfect deep tissue, full body massage with its own unique muscle release technique at Leeds’s Lush Spa

If you are physically active, this is the massage that will get you through. Or if you are the person that finds yourself rushing around, constantly building up tension then The Good Hour is what you need for a reprieve.

Feature Opulent Indulgence

Liz Coggins escapes to the ultimate country house hotel

My mode of transport seemed totally inappropriate as I drove through the golden gates of Wynyard Hall. I really felt I should have been in an open top vintage Sunbeam sports car or a chauffeur driven Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

There was something ethereal as I journeyed down the long, winding lanes of the 150 acres of parkland that makeup the estate – perhaps it was the mist rising amidst the trees and over the lake – or just that I’d seen too many episodes of Downton Abbey and recently re-read Brideshead Revisited.

Travel Splendid Isolation

Liz Coggins enjoys a sojourn in the Beautiful Bahamas

Island life is a dream existence that many would like to try. Spend a holiday in The Bahamas and the dream can become reality.

How to fight the January Beauty Nightmares

January brings with it a whole range of beauty nightmares. Too many late nights partying over the festive season, winter chills, the drying effect of central heating and generally feeling under the weather after the long trawl of burning the candle at both ends!

When its cold and dry, the air around you can suck the moisture out of your skin and wind further dehydrates the skin and causes it to become dry, rough, sore, flaky and itchy..To put it bluntly January is your skin’s arch enemy.
