Not sure where to start? Well, let's go with how to go about shopping for your winter looks. When it comes to shopping there's always this preconceived idea with students that 'cheaper is better' which isn't always true. What you buy for winter needs to be heavy duty and high quality, as you'll be living in these clothes day in day out over the next several months.

One of the greatest things about travelling in Iceland is the unavoidable sense of adventure, arriving on something akin to a moonscape, unsure of what lies ahead. Departing knowing that no matter how many times you return the butterflies will never fade. Everyone has a different adventure when they travel here and no matter how many times they return the journey is never the same.

Philip Dundas | Posted 01.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Philip Dundas

Most game - particularly birds - does benefit from hanging around for a bit. It softens the flesh by allowing the lactic acid to break down some of the tougher fibres in the flesh. I recommend leaving your pheasant in a bowl in the back of the fridge for a week where they acquire a nicely intensified gaminess.

I don't wish to preach, but I feel that we should focus less of our attention to giving gifts to our family and friends who, if we're honest, probably have enough money to buy the nice things we're getting them. We should take note of the giving side of Christmas, and if we give gifts surely they should be to those who really can't afford it.
