The brand promotes sustainability by encouraging people to restore their shoes and bags instead of throwing them away and keep buying new ones. It is not just restoration – fancy a Micky Mouse or Marilyn Monroe picture on your shoes? Changing your office black shoes into Cinderella party sparkles? No problem, let go your imagination go wild! They can do as you wish (well, almost…).

The brand has developed innovative ways using high tech, like super focus lasers, to restore even the most damages Dr Martens or favourite bikers’ jackets. And what if you live outside London? No problem! If you can’t get to Kings Cross, you can just send pictures of your items and they will give you an instant quote, then you can just pop your items into post, and they will ship it to you in a like-new condition.

One of the best ways to give yourself a good start to the new year is to focus on upgrading your everyday wellness. Taking care of yourself and feeling good daily is not just about eating right and exercising. It also means finding small, simple ways to look after yourself and feel good in the process. One of the simplest ways to do this is to upgrade your pyjamas. You’d be surprised that a pair of stylish pyjamas that not only fit but help you sleep sounder can make you feel amazing!

Good habits create better habits, and confidence breeds confidence. The same holds true in the bedroom. Wearing something soft and comfortable can also be flattering and sexy. So even if you are too tired to contemplate snuggling with your partner, or if you’re upset about those extra snacks you ate today, put all that aside. If you’re goi ng to go to the trouble of changing into sleep clothes anyway, is it too much trouble to grab your smart, monogrammed pyjamas instead of that old and tattered one? Absolutely not! It’s the same amount of effort, for a lot more reward.

So, perhaps it’s time to invest in some real, 100% cotton, luxury monogrammed pyjamas. Our chic collection of monogrammed women’s sleepwear can be personalised with up to three initials and this is included in the price. From pyjamas to dressing gowns, our comfortable pieces give a nod to utility with crisp shirting, preppy piping and tailored cuts. Available in five sumptuous colours with both long and short length bottom options, as well as matching sets available for the little ones.

Not only can you get a good night’s sleep in your personalised pyjamas, you can also lounge in them confidently on movie nights at home, as well as weekend mornings when you occasionally have the luxury of not getting dressed until noon! It’s the little things in life that make us feel more confident in ourselves, and you will feel amazing in personalised sleepwear, which is why everyone should have at least one pair. So, to start your wellness upgrade for 2019, treat yourself to a pair of nice, new monogrammed pyjamas. You’ll be glad you did.

Look & Cover is an independent lifestyle brand based in Cumbria delivering to the UK and Europe. In-stock items can be embroidered and delivered within four working days, ideal for last minute Valentine’s Day treats.

Women’s pieces are available in sizes small to extra large; pyjama tops are priced £45, shorts £30, trousers £35 and dressing robes £60. The brand also offers children’s sets of pyjama tops and shorts for £45. Visit lookandcover.co.uk to view the full collection.

Idea #1: If your partner is active, always running around or particularly interested in health and fitness, we’d suggest gifting a good quality yoga mat, reusable glass/BPA free water bottle and gym towel. Other nice options or add-ons include a gym bag, such as a small backpack or tote with plenty of room for gym gear, or even a couple of pieces of equipment so that they can train at home. For example, small weights, kettle-bells, resistance bands or foam rollers. If they have a particular sport that interests them, get them gear for that.

Idea #2: For a vegan or environmentally-conscious partner, fill a reusable tote bag with sustainable goodies. Ideas include vegan treats or baked goods, seedlings or houseplants, beeswax wraps, keep cups, sustainable scented candles and vegan chocolate.

Idea #3: For a more classic, girly gift: Get your partner a voucher to create their own perfume/scent. You could also fill a basket with their favourite flowers, treats, and a piece of jewellery with their birthstone or favourite stone. One other little touch: Buy them a nice notebook and leave random little love notes throughout so that as they fill up the pages they come across little surprises here and there.

Idea #4: For the one who loves to party: Get your partner a bottle of their favourite alcohol along with two glasses. Bake them a giant choc-chip cookie with piped love hearts or a custom message to snack on while the two of you enjoy a drink together. Then take them out for the night!

I hope you’ll find at least one of these gift ideas helpful! 🙂 if you need anything else please don’t hesitate to get in touch! Thanks

Easy Yet Interesting Valentine Day Gift Ideas For Her In 2019

By Catherine Nichols
Whether you believe in Valentine Day or not, there is no better way to impress a girl than do something special for her on Valentine’s Day. She can be your girlfriend, a girl you are hitting on, your fiancé, wife, or anyone special in your life – if you do something out of the way on Valentine’s day, she is bound to fall head over heels for you. With valentine’s day drawing near, everyone is looking for easy yet interesting valentine day gift ideas for her in 2019 to impress the lady.
Gone are the days when candle light dinner and a diamond ring used to do the trick; buddy, this is 2019 and if you do something extraordinary, only then she will have something to brag about in front of her friends. Don’t worry, you don’t have to go and fetch the stars for her – here are some easy ideas that you can give a try on Valentine Day 2019:
Self-made treasure hunt
Women love surprises, and there is no exception to this universal truth. To make it interesting, you can just hide around a few clues (may be within the house) and lead her to her final gift. Its easy, convenient, fun, interactive and super cheesy! Try to make it difficult enough to keep the spice alive.
Sizzling lingerie
Women can never have enough of shoes or lingerie, and a certain piece of lingerie because ultra-special if it comes from a boyfriend or husband. This gift is easy to purchase and a total win-win situation because she is going to love it and you are going to reap the benefits in the end. Elle’s lingerie collection is totally enviable.
Try something fun together
Whether its mountain climbing or ice skating, try something that she has never done before. No matter how difficult it turns out to be, she is going to remember the fun time you spent together. It will give you lifetime memories. However, make sure to book in advance as your favourite spot could be unusually busy on Valentine day 2019.
Make a collage
Making a collage is super easy nowadays whether you do it with the help of an app on your smartphone or use some simple software on your computer, it can be done within a matter of minutes. Pick a few of your couple photos, put them in a collage, choose a frame, print it and you are done. You can buy any frame from eBay and you will be done.
Customized jewellery
If you want to blow your significant other off their feet by something that she wouldn’t imagine you would do, customized jewellery is a safe option. You do not have to spend anytime at crafting or creating – simply pop into your favourite jewellery store, tell them your budget, ask them for customization, pay and pick up later. Tiffany & Co. is something no lady would ever be able to resist. A word of advice, this may take longer than you thought, so you have to book in advance and be proactive to implement this idea.
It doesn’t have to be expensive or very tiring, anything heartfelt that you do for your valentine, will show them your efforts and love.

This Valentine’s Day, look no further than Issara’s Structured Tote to spoil your loved one: its timeless, elegant design is handcrafted into your favourite work tote using premium full grain leather.

Edinburgh-based distillery, The Old Curiosity creates the Apothecary Rose Gin, which is made from one of the oldest rose varieties in the world, and has been used in herbal remedies and tinctures for over 5,000 years.

The gin offers a quirky alternative to the traditional gifting of roses, and is guaranteed to impress your Valentine. The beautifully packaged gin also boasts stunning colour-changing properties, changing from pale gold to a vibrant pink when tonic is added. Saying ‘I love you’ with roses and gin is much more fun!

What’s more, until the end of March, every 50cl bottle of the distiller’s Apothecary Rose gin will come with a free bag of hand-picked, pink rose petals to perfectly garnish each glass.

The Apothecary Rose gin is available from The Old Curiosity website www.theoldcuriosity.co.uk as well as specialist off-licences, retailers and outlets, and from Harvey Nichols nationwide from 1st February until 31 March 2019.

Further information:

The Old Curiosity Distillery was founded in the Secret Herb Garden, a botanical nursery just outside Edinburgh. The herbs are grown, picked, dried and infused by hand, so they are guaranteed to be 100% natural.

The Secret Herb Garden opened in 2014, and is the brainchild of Hamish and Liberty Martin. Hamish was a wine merchant with a passion for herbs and a dream of a magical herb garden, while Liberty was a resource manager with a love of all things vintage. Hamish studied for a Diploma in Herbology at Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh in 2013 and after securing a 7.5 acre plot of land at the foot of the Pentlands, the couple left their existing roles and set up the nursery, café and shop.

The Old Curiosity Distillery launched in October 2017; born of the couple’s love of fine herbs and botanicals; their characteristics, flavours and magical properties.

BRING THEATRE INTO YOUR HOME

Theatreland print designs from London Transport Museum shop

Acknowledged as one of the finest transport poster collections in the world, London Transport has a unique collection of vintage and retro London posters celebrating London and everything it has to offer. Available from London Transport Museum shop, posters include those lifted from disused underground stations, new designs and reproductions of posters from the beginning of the London Underground.

New for January 2019, London Transport presents Theatreland posters. The striking posters celebrate designs from Doris Zinkeisen, 1939 Night at the Theatre and Esther Cox, 2018 Theatreland. London Transport is honoured to feature the work of these two great female artists, separated by 80 years but conveying the same story of women going to the theatre alone – something common today, but perhaps inappropriate 80 years ago!

Originally commissioned in 1939 Doris, the hugely talented Scottish painter and theatrical designer created the design to encourage visitors to Theatreland. Sadly, once complete the Second World War put an end to encouraging ‘frivolous’ activities and the poster was deemed inappropriate.
Whilst it didn’t get to print in 1939, London Transport are excited to share it with the public today!

Theatreland posters can be spotted at London Underground stations and are available to purchase from London Underground Museum shop; £14.95; 25 x 40 inches. ltmuseumshop.co.uk
