If you look at celebrity parents, you would be forgiven for thinking so - sun-kissed, perfectly toned and well coiffed with no dark circles in sight, how does Colleen Rooney, Tamara Ecclestone and co. do it? Well, lots of money, nannies and hired help, that's most probably how!

New York City As A Drug

I still loved. I loved too much. But it was unrequited. New York City had been honest all along, and I'd been swept away by a dream that existed long before the city did what it did to me, creating my addiction with it's nebulous, intangible wizardry that always left me wanting more, and again.

Holidaying with a baby/toddler combo is a bit like entering into a psychological experiment to see how long you can remain married in 40 degrees of heat without functioning Wifi... along with a toddler who only eats crisps, drinks pool water and insists on wearing Elsa armbands out to dinner each night.

Living in London, I don't have a car and haven't driven in years and so seem to spend a lot of my time on trains visiting friends and family. I would say I get a train to visit someone once or twice a month at least!

When it came to booking our first family holiday, I didn't hesitate to go abroad - in fact staying at home didn't even come into the question. We did our research and decided on Sardinia. A two-hour flight away, with Caribbean style beaches - just the tonic after a crazy year.

That Summer Spa... Penny Hill Park, an Exclusive Hotel and Spa, Bagshot, Surrey.

Gina Lyons | Posted 03.06.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Gina Lyons

The thing is with London finally getting some sun, is that most spas are all very inside-y. We wanted to enjoy the sun and not be kept in whilst still swimming in the heat. Unless you are prepared to go abroad, this is a big ask. Luckily, the spa we chose was perfect for those sunny days.

The New Forest is a gorgeous part of the world less than two hours drive from London with it's fair share of things to do in and around the National Park; loads of wildlife, National Trust properties, Beaulieu Motor Museum, vineyards, picturesque villages and towns or just walking in the fresh air and admiring the wild ponies! It's also well placed for Bournemouth and its beaches too.

It is 9pm and the holiday house that we are staying in rural France has retired for the day; the garden cleared of toys, bikes, and all signs of long lazy lunching (which always merges in to dinnering) has been washed-up and put away, until the next day.

One of the things I expect from the people who run the country I live in is to enforce the laws of the country. Yet time and time again disabled people are faced with businesses that just do not make themselves accessible to disabled customers, and the excuse is nearly always expense.

By many accounts, Switzerland is the most expensive country in the world. It's also one of the most beautiful and offers superb skiing. It would be a shame to dismiss it entirely on grounds of cost.

The Relationship Between Music and Travel

I find music and travel both utterly addictive. After one short trip away, I return with post-travel blues, desperate to go on another one. The same with music - I'm incapable of listening to one song, then turning off.

It's the same story for holidays. I don't know about you but I've wasted my last few holidays by generally taking the lazy option - not going for that hike, not getting a bike, vegetating in front of a screen - but I hope next time will be different.

Situated almost exactly where the shoelaces would be on the boot of Italy, which is how I described its location to almost everyone who asked and received instant recognition, the Amalfi Coast is made up of several towns spanning an unfathomably picturesque coastline, easily one of the most beautiful in the world, as a quick Google will confirm.
