The purpose of Mothering Sunday is to stop and recognise the immenseness of the woman who brought you into this world; to celebrate her courage, her strength, her love and kindness. I once read a quote that said “women are not only half the population, they are mothers to the other half too”. Tokens of appreciation are lovely, but nothing is worth more than our time. I asked some of my readers to share with me their favourite memory of time spent with their Mum, or from their time as a mum.

Deciding to venture into a new salon is no easy feat; the relationship that one builds with both their locks and their stylist is a marriage of sorts, nurtured over time and resting upon a mutual understanding that we do not mention The Fringe of 2008. So entrusting someone new with your hair is a bit like going on a first date…with scissors and bleach involved.

A Spring wardrobe is by far my favourite and I’m relishing the prospect of leaving the house without a big fat jacket on or thick black tights but what has got me really excited is the shoes! It’s true, nobody can ever have too many pairs and I just adore summery sandals, cute little ankle straps and pretty much anything that doesn’t require me having to zip my calves into warm leather boots.

When you first think of Indian food in London, what comes to mind? It’s probably not crisp white table linen, fragrant sparkling wine and fine dining. And yet if you venture down to Gaylord’s on Mortimer Street, Fitzrovia, that’s exactly what you’ll find. Founded in London in 1966 following the success of it’s predecessor in Mumbai, Gaylord’s serves the freshest curries and Indian delicacies in a sophisticated setting with service to rival the top London restaurants.

Often it can be difficult to make a rented property truly feel like home, especially when it’s already furnished to someone else’s taste. I’m lucky in that my bedroom is large and mostly fairly neutral, however it still didn’t feel like ‘me’ so I decided to give it a spruce up last weekend. My focus was on soft, tranquil colours to try and create a homely environment conducive to relaxing at the end of a long day.
