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 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.
New year and it’s time to plan your next holiday. Travel experts Dragonfly Traveller suggest a multi-centre destination. With so many exciting destinations to choose from in the world, it can be difficult to decide on where you want to go, so this sounds perfect to me.
January is often a quiet month for exploring our county, but Laura Malpas has found you a warm, welcoming and wonderful place for a visit, Jeyes of Earls Barton. The Jeyes family passion for botany, pharmacy and the discovery of remedies dates back to 1635, with the first recorded John Jeyes. This passion has continued to today, with the family providing an unbroken line of apothecaries or chemists, remaining true to the family motto, ‘tenax et fidelis’, or ‘steadfast and faithful’ to the profession of pharmacy serving the people of Northamptonshire.
