MK January 19
From the Editor
Welcome to 2019! I hope you had an incredible Christmas and New Year, and that you managed to spend quality time with family, friends and loved ones.
Some exciting news from Pulse Magazine HQ, is that we have reached the finals of the SME MK & Buckinghamshire Business Awards 2019 in not one, but two categories! It’s the first time we have entered for an award, so to reach the finals is simply amazing. Winners will be announced at a glitzy black tie event at Stadium MK in February, so watch this space! #exciting
It's that time of year again when thoughts turn to calories consumed over the festivities, pounds piled on, and the dreaded New Year resolutions. I don’t know about you but I never quite manage to get to the end of January, never mind six weeks it takes to make it habitual! So it’s a good job that motivational speaker and coach, Ben Williams is on hand this month to advise on the best methods to stick to our resolutions and make the changes needed. You can do it!
On the run up to party season, millions of women were on the hunt for their “perfect” outfit. Dashing from shop to shop, loving the clothes hanging on the rail but not loving the look staring back from the mirror. How amazing would it be to have a fairy godmother who selected clothes that were just right, and that all you had to do was stay in the changing room drinking tea, while someone brought clothes to you that were the right size and within your budget? Well, personal shoppers are supposed to do exactly that. We visit John Lewis Milton Keynes this month to find out if this shopping experience is everything it claims to be.
To most people the distinctive red-brick farmhouse on McConnell Drive is known as Milton Keynes Museum. But for almost 250 years before the Museum moved in, Stacey Hill Farmhouse had a fascinating life of its own. Milton Keynes Museum tell us more about this keeper of Milton Keynes’ history inside.
Now that Christmas is behind us, the focus turns to the new year and plans for 2019. Whether those plans involve adding a lick of paint to a room, remodelling a kitchen or bathroom, or something more momentous such as an extension or entire house move, knowing the upcoming trends for 2019 may well influence your decorative decisions. So it’s a good job that interior design expert Rosie Kinsella is on hand to offer a round up of what’s hot and what’s not for 2019.
Enjoy January and I’ll see you all next month.
