EVENT New Issue
Our new issue is out now! This month’s hazel tree theme means a magazine packed with features about creativity, transformation and wisdown. We meet families who live in the woods and live off the land, discover why it’s important to see toddlers differently and find out how good can come out of school anxiety. Plus how to get more in control, a ten-minute yoga routine to energise and calm through sophrology. And how to build a bender, 6 plant-based breakfasts and secret islands to explore. Did we mention our fantastic, free Beauty Bible is inside?! Phew! Find it at a newsagent near you, or treat yourself, subscribe here (this month, you’ll even get a Pure Purpose body scrub to say thank you), and never miss an issue.
EVENT and LEARN Glow For It
Have you ever seen a magical glowworm? It’s peak season in the UK for the little light-up bugs, so why not go on a safari?

There are some excellent organised walks to start you off here and some on Dunstable Downs here. Find out more about the rare creatures here

RECIPE The Herbal-icer
It’s well and truly ice-cream season. We’ve got a hankering for the herbal this year, so are salivating at the thought of these recipes for mint, thyme, lavender, basil and rosemary creams and this recipe for lemon balm ice. If you’re dairy-free, this Hibiscus and Tulsi Sorbet sounds mouthwatering . Want something even easier? These fresh mint ice lollies are simple and cooling.
EVENT Mela Yella
The beautiful Wandle Park is the setting for Sunday’s Croydon’s Mela.
