Gin lollies for your loved one this Valentine’s Day? ‘You’re the Brighton Gin to my tonic’ lollies from UK’s favourite gin

The UK’s favourite gin* has launched a gin flavoured lollipop for lovers this Valentine’s Day.

With the phrase “You’re the Brighton Gin to my tonic’ engraved on to them and in Brighton Gin’s distinctive ‘seafront railings’ blue/green colour the heart-shaped lollies come as a pack of three at £8, in a couples kit of 2 lollies and 2 cute miniature bottles (50ml) at £17, as a lollipop and half bottle gift (350ml) at £25, or a lollipop and full bottle gift at £41.50.

On sale this week from Brightongin.com (which has launched an online shop in time for Valentine’s Day) the lollies are flying out of the Brighton distillery.

Secret admirers should place orders by 9am on Monday 12th February for delivery on or before 14th.

*Voted the UK’s best gin in the 2017 People’s Drinks awards, Brighton Gin is smooth, gentle and approachable and is mellow enough to be sipped neat over ice. It is particularly delicious as part of a classic G&T, served with a fine tonic and a slice of orange – the better to bring out the citrus botanicals – and works brilliantly in a Martini, a Negroni and a French 75 (or a Sussex 75 with your favourite Sussex sparkling wine).

Locals often drink it as a unique Brighton Gin Rocktail – with tonic, ice and a chunk of Brighton rock.

The ‘You’re the Brighton Gin to my tonic’ lollipops weigh 85g and are made with Brighton Gin.

Shower your baby with love this Valentine’s Day,

with BabyBjorn, Diono, Yoomi and Strepelle

With Valentine’s Day soon approaching, BabyBjorn are spreading love to new parents everywhere with the launch of the new versions of the popular Baby Carrier One (RRP £139) and Baby Carrier One Air (RRP £159) alongside the latest campaign: A LOVE MANIFESTO.

To celebrate the launch of the new carriers and to support new parents, the BabyBjörn campaign focuses on the powerful love in parenthood, with A Love Manifesto dedicated to all parents:

Trust yourself
Create your own rules
Invent your own parenting

BabyBjörn have seen that unrealistic expectations and demands put a lot of pressure on soon-to-be and new ‘millennial mums’ particularly. Many women go to the internet for help and find themselves the target of negative comments and harsh criticism for their parenting style. BabyBjörn believe that being a parent is not a competition and should be about what is real. BabyBjörn want to put things into perspective by empowering new mums and dads to have faith in their own instincts, set their own standards and develop their own unique parenting style. The one thing that all parents have in common is the love they have for their children.

The new collection of carriers was designed with the help of 100 real families, along with paediatricians, babywearing practitioners and medical experts, every feature of the new carriers have been analysed and created for hours of happy babywearing and support for your growing baby’s neck, hips and spine.

As with the original One carrier, these new versions are suitable from birth all the way to three years old; carry your baby on your front close to your heart, inward or outward facing, and when they are one year old you can carry them on your back, turning the carrier with one simple movement. The new carrier is available in a variety of new colours such as Grey/Powder Pink, Black, Grey, Classic Denim/midnight blue, Anthracite, Silver and Frost Green and more to suit everyone.

To celebrate the launch of the new Baby Carrier One and One Air, BabyBjorn are offering 10% off anything with the code Love2018 on the webshop. The code is live until the 26 Feb 2018.

BE WOOED AT WARWICK CASTLE,

WHERE CHIVALRY KNOWS NO BOUNDS

Romantic Riverside Retreats from £289

Early Booking Offer: 25 per cent off

Bring the Kids and Still Enjoy a Castle Romance

5 February 2018: For a truly romantic retreat this February, Warwick Castle offers a contemporary take on love whilst embracing the fairy-tale of centuries of passion and devotion.

Exuding romance at every turn, Warwick Castle has entranced the romantically-minded for centuries. From elegant opulence of The Great Hall and State Rooms, to epic love stories from the pages of history, fall in love with one of the country’s most romantic settings.

Snuggle up in a cosy Lodge, nestled in woodland by the River Avon within the Castle’s grounds, from only £289*, including two days’ Castle entrance, buffet breakfast and car parking.

For a truly royal experience, the Castle’s two Tower Suites – lavishly adorned and boasting bespoke hard-carved four poster beds alongside contemporary comforts – offer a supremely private bolthole. Once the gates close for the day, Tower Suite guests enjoy the Castle to themselves, quite an idyllic setting for an anniversary, mini-moon, or even a proposal. From £550 per night per Suite.

Stories of true love abound at the Castle, such as Guy of Warwick and his social superior, Princess Felice whose legend has enthralled lovers for over one thousand years and inspired the thirteenth century Earls of Warwick to name their heir after its hero. Falling in love with Felice, the humble Guy demonstrated his knightly prowess to prove his worthiness to claim her hand in marriage: the medieval stories tell of Guy bounding around Europe, slaying fantastical foes such as dragons and giants. Happily, the couple married.

Melissa Paniccia, Head of History at Warwick Castle, said: “Our towers, battlements and legends imbue the Castle with air of fairy tale romance, making Warwick the perfect place to woo and be wooed. We have knights on horseback and notably one of our finest is a woman. We actively celebrate the proactive roles played by women in our history, from Anne Neville who married Richard III to Her Majesty the Queen, who recently marked her own platinum wedding anniversary.”

She added: “Chivalry no longer involves swinging swords, scaling castle walls or slaying dragons as Guy of Warwick did to win Felice. Chivalry today is more about the application of ‘knightly virtues’ – such as mercy, kindness and fairness – and that applies as much to women as to men. We believe there are many women today who choose to be the knights in shining armour of the twenty-first century: Warwick Castle is for them.”

Take a hand-in-hand stroll up The Mound, the site of the first fortress built on the site at the order of William the Conqueror in 1068; or down by the grassy banks of the River Avon that flows on to Stratford-upon-Avon, where Shakespeare created romantic masterpieces aplenty. The Georgian Conservatory with views across the ‘Capability’ Brown-designed grounds and The Great Hall, with its soaring ceilings and gleaming treasures – much admired by Queen Victoria and other members of the Royal Family for generations – provide perfect spots for romance.

The Castle and its 64 acres of sweeping grounds provide the chance to enjoy ‘together time’ – think sunset hot chocolates on a private lodge veranda. Those with children can also enjoy a romantic break, stealing a kiss in a secret passageway, confident that the family will find more than enough to keep themselves entertained amongst the year-round attractions including Birds of Prey and Mighty Trebuchet shows, the Princess Tower and more.

You can never go wrong with wine. Repeat: You can never go wrong with wine. Especially wines that are love-themed. Here are our top picks for a love-themed wine dinner.

Piazza del Castello ROSSO IGT TOSCANA (SRP $14.00)
Appellation – Tuscany
Packaged in a very traditional bottle design, it’s a classy Valentine’s Day dinner choice. This is a Super Tuscan style made with 50% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. You’ll enjoy beautiful aromas ripe berries that give way to chocolate and nuances of dark earthy tones.

Gran Passione Rosso (SRP $13.00)
Appellation: Veneto, Italy
Valentine’s Day is about beautiful things, and when you combine Italian wine with the old school bottle design, it just emanates romance. This is one of our go-to food wines, a nice complement to hearty Italian food. The wine is made int he traditional Appassimento style – “Apassimento” (to dry and shrivel) is the same style as Amarone wines of the region. This technique has its roots in an ancient past dating back to the Roman era. Over the centuries, this technique of “drying” the grapes before crushing has been honed, resulting in this unique expression of northern Italy.

Besserat de Bellefon Brut Rose (SRP $65.00)
Appellation: Champagne, France
It’s really one of our go-to Valentine’s Day picks because you just can’t go wrong with Champagne, especially a consistent 90+ point Brut Rose. This is made in the crémant style of winemaking technique reduces the dosage, which lowers the bottle pressure about one atmosphere, so that the Champagne is soft, creamy and packed with tiny bubbles. You’ll enjoy this Brut Rose’s intense notes of wild strawberry on the nose.

Tiamo Prosecco (SRP $15 750ml, $5.50 187ml)
Appellation: Veneto
We chose this one for obvious reasons – Tiamo means “I love you” in Italian, and it’s sparkling, it’s a no-brainer Valentine’s Day go-to. Also made with organics grapes, it’s a nice clean, affordable aperitif wine or just anytime wine.

It’s that time of year to show the one you love just how much you love them.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to create an atmosphere to be talked about for years to come! It’s not the usual flowers and a card. You have to move away from the pack on this one.

Do you want to create an unforgettable you? It’s right under your nose, literally. Scent is heavily attached to memory. That’s something Renea Hanks, the founder of Candles By Me, discovered in 2003, after an accident at work. Since then it has been her driving force and motivation.

In 2003, Renea suffered a blow to the head with a steel cross bar at work in 2003. She was putting money into a safe, and bending forward, Renea didn’t see the steel bar. It rocked forward and hit her above her right eyebrow.

From that blow, she suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. This left her not remembering simple things like the process of how to make coffee. Not only was this traumatizing, it was deeply depressing because she also noticed that her sense of smell has diminished.

She wasn’t letting this go without a fight. She began to read everything she could get before her eyes about the brain and how the brain works. This is when she discovered the power of scent.

Learning that scent is heavily attached to memory, she stopped just handing candles to customers for them to smell. She would ask: Tell something that made you really happy in life. Where were you? What is a favorite childhood memory? Did you play outside a lot?

After she asked those questions, she would hand the customer a scent that had those fragrance notes they would have enjoyed at that time. They would immediately rave about how much they loved the scent! It was no surprise to Renea. She knew why. She would explain this to the customers so they would understand the power of scent. It delighted them even more as they handled the candle with care and love. It was like they are holding their memory. Renea loved the way it made her customers feel.

Renea Hanks been creating custom fragrances and colors over 17 years. Her son, Holden, is partner is their quest for created amazing and unique conversation starters that are normally called candles. They have developed their own blend of natural waxes that add depth, dimension and unusual beauty to the candles.

Get kissable lips for Valentine’s Day
With Gold Collagen® Anti-Ageing Lip Volumiser

In the cold days of February, we all face the issue of trying to stay hydrated. Lips need even more hydration during the cold season as they have a poor barrier function because of their thin epidermis and they do not have sebaceous glands in comparison with the skin. Gold Collagen® experts have developed a clinically tested Gold Collagen® Anti-Ageing Lip Volumiser to hydrate and protect lips. February is the time to get your lips in perfect condition and ready for Valentine’s Day.

The new Gold Collagen® Anti-Ageing Volumiser contains vital ingredients to help restore the lips natural volume and protect against external damage, making it the perfect gift to treat yourself or your loved ones for Valentine’s Day. It is the latest addition to the Gold Collagen® topical range and it joins the Gold Collagen® Hydrogel Mask, which is for dehydrated and tired-looking skin. Our topical range complements our original liquid collagen beauty supplements that are scientifically formulated to boost “beauty from the inside out”.

Dr Sara Sibilla, Head of Research & Development at Gold Collagen® shares her tips for glowing, healthy lips:

1. Maintain a healthy balanced diet and consume enough water because in cold weather we choose hot drinks over water leading to cracked, chapped lips

2. Make sure you’re taking enough Vitamin A, B2 (Riboflavin), C and E as it helps to keep your lips smooth and healthy

3. Stop smoking and excessively using lipsticks and harsh cosmetics (that include parabens, PEGs and silicon) as they further dry out your lips

For a lip balm to be effective in protecting and nourishing your lips they should contain natural emollients and oils with photo-protective, healing, soothing and moisturising properties such as Almond, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil which is also an antioxidant. It should also include Vitamin E to provide daily protection against free radicals and external aggressions. Beeswax is an essential ingredient for its anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties. It deeply hydrates, softens and creates a waterproof barrier to lock in that vital moisture. A powerful blend of Oligopeptides can help stimulate collagen synthesis for fuller looking lips, restore moisture and aid in stimulating collagen production.

“A forward-thinking, intelligent study of elusive felines” The Telegrah

From the excutive producer of Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II Mike Gunton, narrated by Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster), the BBC’s latest natural history television hit Big Cats will be released on DVD on 12th February.

Using the latest developments in filming technology, and a surge in cat research, Big Cats bring these feline superstars into the spotlight. Combining fascinating behaviours with amazing stories, the series reflects the true nature of cats – and reveals how they still have the power to surprise.

“MASTERPIECE: VICTORIA SEASON 2”

Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) returns for a new season as the young queen who wants it all—romance, power, an heir, and personal freedom. Created and scripted by bestselling novelist Daisy Goodwin (The Fortune Hunter), Victoria’s first season focused on the teenage queen’s audacious upstaging of her handlers to chart her own path.

“VICTORIA: SEASON 2” finds Victoria adapting to motherhood after the birth of her first child, a daughter (to the disappointment of many). Meanwhile, the disaster of the Anglo-Afghan War unfolds abroad, and the catastrophic Irish potato famine begins to wreak havoc. In other foreign affairs, a royal state visit to France is in the offing.

Most intriguing to Prince Albert is the budding Industrial Revolution, which is now sweeping England. There is Charles Babbage’s mechanical calculator, a collaborative project with the bewitching Ada Lovelace, daughter of the scandalous Lord Byron. Then there is William Fothergill Cooke’s miraculous electrical telegraph, not to mention Marc Isambard Brunel’s daring—and dangerous—Thames Tunnel.

What an extraordinary time to be queen!

“Masterpiece: Victoria Season 2” has a run time of approximately 480 minutes on 3 discs. The DVD SRP is $49.99 and the Blu-ray SRP is $59.99. The series will be available on January 30, 2018. The first season is currently available.

Bali Balm is a new luxury lip-balm brand for men and women. Its rich, intensive formula is both cruelty free and 100% natural, allowing for healthy, cruelty-free lip care. Containing multiple natural oils that are rich in antioxidants and antibacterial properties, Bali Balm has been perfected to absorb quickly and lock in moisture without leaving a waxy film on the surface of your lips.

The balms contain an ethically-sourced, environmentally and bee-friendly formula of coconut, castor and kukui nut oils along with candelilla leaf wax, blended with sugar cane extract in place of honey and beeswax. All three oils play a major role in moisturizing lips, deeply penetrating without clogging pores, leaving lips soft, supple and revitalised. There are no preservatives or carcinogenic substances such as MOSH or MOAH (mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons and mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons) included in Bali Balm’s formula as there are in many high-street brands. The vitamin-rich recipe promotes the strength and reparation of collagen, also aiding in fast healing and wrinkle prevention.

The four Bali Balm creations have been created in conjunction wth London chef Russell Bateman, to ensure each one is a smooth fusion of botanicals and spices. The Bali Balm collection includes a stimulating Bergamot & Grapefruit, a refreshing Lemon & Black Pepper, a warm Cinnamon & Orange and an exotic Sandalwood & Ginger.

The environment is precious, and at Bali Balm, we want to ensure that none of our plastic ends up in landfills or the oceans. With each tube of Bali Balm, customers receive a pre-paid envelope, so they can return the tube and cap to us for recycling; the proceeds of which will go to environmental charities. It’s our Kiss The Planet pledge.
