A healthy lifestyle is reflected in your skin - so be positive, keep happy and aim to be more physically active. A sense of well-being goes a long way towards delaying the ageing process.

Nothing Is Permanent But Change

Sometimes you can go on, feeling a certain way for the longest time, and then in an instant, everything changes. Something shifts within us. And suddenly, we can't even remember the way we used to feel. We only know how we feel now.

As with any Caribbean destination, it would be silly not to start with the beaches. Oh, the beaches. There's plenty in Aruba, and all of them are lucky enough to be lapped by sparkling blue waters.

Fast Food #5: Fish and Chips

Eating fish and chips in a fuggy car on a drizzly day, the smell of grease and malt vinegar mixed with slightly damp newspaper wrapping and damper dog. Ah joy. I think this is still my favourite takeaway.

Perfect Wedding Cocktails

Over the years I have been asked hundreds of times by friends, family, event organisers and wedding planners 'what is the best way to decide on the perfect cocktails at a wedding?'.

Although uncommon, Summer-Onset SAD does affect some people, with symptoms opposite to those in the winter; sufferers can experience weight loss, insomnia, loss of appetite, and agitation at this time of year. Summer-Onset SAD is not as widely recognised as the winter form of the syndrome, but it is something that does exist, and people should be aware of it.

Glastonbury has, to the surprise of two cows on Worthy Farm, announced Arcade Fire as the first headliner for 2014. As much as I love Arcade Fire, they've already proven themselves at this level. The meat and veg of this set, therefore, will be the performance of new album Reflektor.

Parlez-Vous Fashion: Introducing Caslazur

Last year I had an Australian landlord. He was laid back, always asking me 'how're you going?' and never concerned about anything but the Ashes. Caslazur has the same vibe; her girl is cool and calm. She turns heads, not because she looks a million dollars, but because her clothes have it all worked out.

The Most Magical Place on Earth - My Summer in Walt Disney World

During the summer I was lucky enough to gain a place on the Walt Disney World College Program as a character attendant and I can honestly say it was the most unusual and inspiring experience of my life. As a child I always said I would love to work at Disney, but I never believed this could actually be a reality...

We are fortunate in the UK to live in a very green and pleasant land. Much of our natural landscape is untouched, untamed and so old that I get entranced just looking at it.

The Best of British

The middle of July heralded a very British weekend for me. Back to back it was hit after hit of everything I love about England - tradition, the celebration of 'the season', romantic and sometimes slightly twee events but they are all things I love.

A Summer Holiday in Elounda

Elounda might be just 23 miles from party-tastic Malia, but it feels like it's worlds away. Peaceful, beautiful, and apparently very windy, Elounda is a small fishing town on the Northern coast of Crete. Frequently visited by the likes of Lady Gaga and Leo DiCaprio, Elounda does private and quiet very well - much better than luxe favourites, Santorini and Mykonos.

Bombay - A Commute From Hell

As I reflect on my experiences in India so far, one daily pain I have to endure is my commute to work. That is, four hours a day spent travelling to and from work. This is normal, of course; plenty of people spend a sizeable part of their day just commuting to work as in a developed, modern society, often we live further away from our work than we desire...

The way I see it, parents are being corralled into extortionate holiday prices - they can't take their children out of school and summer family deals are few and far between - it's something I call the Parent Trap.

For students everywhere it has always provided a liberating period between one busy university year and an even busier year to come. Consequently, students have never failed to embrace the many benefits of the summer break. However, with the controversial rise in tuition fees to £9000 per year the necessity of university has been debated.

Summertime Blues: Social Media and Home Security

Social media and smartphone technology has improved to the point that you can pinpoint your exact location to a Facebook status or photo, or add a location to a Tweet, just as easily as you can send the message itself. This is all very well in the world of technology and social media, but not the smartest move if you're on the other side of the world and your house currently lies empty.
