Yes, a week staying at Le Petit Bijou in gorgeous Saint Rémy de Provence.
Saint Rémy is a beautiful Provencal village in the heart of Provence. Le Petit Bijou, our “little jewel box” is a small house situated in the centre of the town.
It is the perfect place to stay to explore the wonders of Provence and equally it is heaven to stop, relax and never leave the village.
There is one kind of statement I don’t ever, ever like hearing.
It is the, they-are-so-difficult-to buy-for or they-have-everything comment. Nonsense.
Everybody, even those who appear to have everything love being spoilt and cherish a gift as much as the next person.
A gift doesn’t have to be expensive, overly clever or even original; a gift has to be heartfelt.
A gift can be quirky, practical or even sublimely impractical but it does require thought and that is where the generosity kicks in.
The ‘generous’ part of giving is the thinking time not the price ticket.
Mistress of the workplace attire, she embodies the mastery of being both feminine and practical in the most elegant of ways.
As ‘The Fall’ returns to our televisions, so does Stella Gibson’s impeccable style.
Gillian Anderson’s personal fashion is not all that far apart from her on-screen ego, even down to that scrumptious blow dry.
Adding shine and volume to hair is something most of us try on a daily basis.
It is much harder to pump up the volume if hair is fine and straggly.
The truth is a good hair day changes the way we feel and think about ourselves and gives us an extra dose of self-confidence. I know when my hair is looking its best I feel like a different person, especially now I have given up colour in favour of the greys.
As I age I feel more and more certain that beautiful, healthy and well styled hair is one of the best beauty secrets of all.
We can be fearful of time spent solo and see it as a sense of failure on our parts for all sorts of reasons. It is important to feel confident alone and to be able to enjoy our own company, to re-charge and embrace those elements of life we love regardless.
