The End of Winter...

We are coming toward the end of July and yes we have started contemplating the end of winter...a little optimistic but hey if it's one thing we are not short of it's optimism. So bring on Spring, and a bit of sunshine to go with it! We here at Turret House have put together some of the things that make winter that little bit brighter... enjoy.

Food for the season

Organic Manuka Honey (build resistance to flu and cold) and organic peanut butter (try on toast with blue cheese, alfafa sprouts and a little mayo)

The best drink

A yard glass full with ice, fresh basil passionfruit vodka and passionfruit liqueur and topped off with Chi

Flower of the moment

Plant anemones ready for spring. And we can’t go passed hydrangeas – they rock in any colour.

Words of wisdom

“You’ll be okay”

Relationship advice (from Gail alone!!!!)

Stay up and give him dinner and ask how his day was…no matter how late at night.

( Oh stoppitt you lot!)

Hottest woman

The Russian woman on the cover of the June British Vogue – Natalia Vodianova.

Hottest man

Ryan Reynolds (go see The Proposal at the movie theatre)

Hottest dance

The hoedown with Miley Cyrus – learn this dance with your children (Thalia is offering leesons)

Hottest beauty treatments

Beauty treatment for the season and forever more is The Brazilian

The ultimate winter treat is a pedicure with “it’s up to blue” polish. (for finger nails try “Naughty” a lush choc brown).

Think about having a facial to remove the dry winter skin – spring will be here soon, honest! An exfoliating massage and spray tan will change the way you feel about yourself. Say good bye to pasty winter skin.

Lipstick - nudes are in

Product of the moment

Playball soda hair sparkler and for men ItalicOSIS+ Mess up

In General...

Need a present for a wedding or anniversary - “The Red Thread, a love story” by Leslie Walters or a silver serving spoon with the initials of the bride and groom engraved.

Men buy your woman a voucher for a massage. it's the most wonderfully indulgent thing a person could have.

See you soon
