  • 8 ways with cherries

    8 May 2015 ~ Food, Living

    Driving through Kent recently, I was amazed at the number of roadside stalls selling cherries. Nearly every road had their own cherry stall, complete with hand-drawn cherry sign.

  • Upgrade your festival experience

    6 May 2015 ~ Environment

    Tangerine Fields take away the hassles of camping to ensure a more pleasurable and luxurious festival experience. They provide additional on-site facilities at selected events leaving you and your friends plenty of time to enjoy good music, sports, friends and sunshine. The concept was simple for founder Suzy Myler and Mark Shelley. In 2004 at the Big Chill festival, after an exhausting experience in taking their own tents down at the end of a long weekend of music and fun, the idea was formed. A year later they accommodated 100 people at the Big Chill and suddenly a viable business was born. […] more

  • WIN A WEEK’S SUPPLY OF BREASTFEEDING BARS

    5 May 2015 ~ Babies, Living

    Freida’s Feeding Food by family health brand Freida’s Pantry is a functional food bar designed for breastfeeding mums. It is based on a traditional recipe used by Eastern women to breastfeed and recover from giving birth. The oat, nut and seed bar is rich in omega 3 and 6 and high in fibre. The bars are made of galactalogues, which are foods that may help with milk quality and quantity. Each bar contains only 187 calories, on average breastfeeding mums need an extra 500 calories a day to keep up their milk supply so the bars are a good way to get the additional calories through “good fats”.
