hello & welcome to a bright new issue!

Those of you who follow me on my personal Instagram (@LizEarleMe) will know I spent time in Kenya earlier this year, on various charity and wildlife projects. I have a longestablished connection with the country as my family has a home there and I’m patron and ambassador of several NGOs based in East Africa. Such a liberating and vibrant place – as you can see from our cover picture! We shot it in Samburu Land, high on a mountain with incredible views. The Samburu are the most colourful tribe I have ever met (a warrior loaned me his beautiful beaded necklace for the photo) and my trip inspired me to fill this edition with colour. From bright ideas for the home and garden, to colourful cooking with seasonal foods to help…

Mind over menopause Mindfulness may be key to experiencing fewer menopausal symptoms, new research has shown. Practising mindfulness involves focusing attention on the present moment and observing thoughts and sensations as they occur, without judgement. The study found that higher mindfulness scores were associated with lower scores for symptoms such as irritability, depression and anxiety, although, alas, they found no link with reduced physical symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats. STAIR WELL Struggling to fit exercise into your routine? Simply taking the stairs each day could help improve your wellbeing. The findings of a new study, published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism, found that adding ‘exercise snacks’ of climbing three flights of stairs, three times a day, for three days a week, improved the fitness levels and strength…

bring on the banya!

We paid a visit to Banya No. 1 in London’s Hoxton to experience this traditional and much-loved Russian wellbeing therapy. Not for the faint-hearted, it takes a few moments to acclimatise both body and brain to the fiercely hot air and the slightly hysterical sight of a burly Russian chap, stripped to the waist save for a woollen cloche protecting his head from the heat, waving leaves at your naked frame. One of the main rituals of a Banya treatment is the Parenie with a venik, a leafy, fragrant bundle of birch, oak and eucalyptus twigs. Lying on a tabletop inside the sauna room, the therapist (or banshik as he is known) starts by wafting hot air up and down the body before starting top-to-toe twig-whacking. The idea is to boost…

Where did your love of makeup begin? I’ve always loved makeup. I think it dates back to sitting at my mother’s feet, mesmerised as she got ready. Later, I used to ask for Boots vouchers for birthdays and Christmas, and would spend hours selecting the bits that I wanted. I still feel as excited now opening new makeup as I did all those years ago. Who are your beauty icons? It goes without saying that my mother was one of my icons, but my all-time favourite has to be Elizabeth Taylor. I just think she was breathtakingly beautiful and I share her love of all things sparkly! In terms of industry icons I really admire Bobbi Brown and Kevyn Aucoin, as well as the British greats of our time – Pat McGrath, Lisa…
