The spotlight is on Wellness Tourism

Posted by Anni Hood on: 02/11/2013

One of the most rewarding things I’ve borne witness to of late, is the growing spotlight on wellness and wellness tourism. About time eh? The subject of illness prevention, longevity, pro active health and protective medicine has long since been tabled and more often, passed over… in favour of a more conventional, reactive approach. Of a ‘safer’ bet. Of a scientific, ‘cannot argue with it’ answer, for symptoms both physical and mental.

The vulnerable Mr Grey

Posted by Anni Hood on: 09/01/2013

When a book is this popular its difficult to resist the lure of knowing what all the fuss is about. The reviews present a melee of compulsion, disgust, blushing smiles, scathing criticism and not least of all, addictive pleasure. The more polarity I saw the more intrigued I became.

I haven’t read about Mr Grey yet. I will, for now though I’m enjoying hearing everyone elses view before I dive in. One thing is for sure , love it or hate it, everyone’s reading it. Boys included. …OF GREY

It's all good (mostly)

Bring me sunshine

Posted by Anni Hood on: 29/03/2012

Get a load of all this fantastic sunshine…everyone feels better and the bikini has already made it’s first appearance of 2012, still March, what bliss…my cynical mind fears peaking too early but my natural instinct says no fear...

It is not what we need to avoid but...

Oliver Burkeman writes a great column in The Guardian called ‘This column will change your life” last weeks’ was called ‘the two things’; http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/feb/24/two-things-to-know-oliver-burkeman?INTCMP=SRCH

What a stunner!

Posted by Anni Hood on: 27/02/2012

I don’t like to bang on about the weather (so predictably British…that and tea) but yesterday really was a stunner. I could feel the warmth of the sun on my skin and what a difference it makes to how you feel.

Chasing the Easter Bunny

Posted by Anni Hood on: 23/02/2012

An unusual week for me. I haven’t been feeling terribly well. Struck down with a vicious ‘bug’ or food poisoning (I’m not sure) late Sunday afternoon and still feeling a little tender. It was dramatic. Very sudden.

"Stroke this, it's mink" Part Two

Posted by Anni Hood on: 10/01/2012

Hmmm, this is turning into Sex in the City, or to be more accurate, Sex in the Country (actually make that ‘lack of’ ) …perhaps we should explore in another more dedicated post, for now I need to finish what I started…

"Stroke this, it's mink" Part One

Posted by Anni Hood on: 03/01/2012

…was one of the best/worst chat up lines I was subjected to during 2011. The requested stroking was of a suited forearm. I looked curiously at the chap as he thrust the aforementioned body part towards me...

Love at first sight

I’ve been in ‘move mode’ for a while but now ensconced in the Somerset countryside and slightly less frantic – did someone say it’s Christmas next week? Oh.

Christmas is cunning

Posted by Anni Hood on: 28/11/2011

They know how to get us worked up. Pulling at heart strings and throwing magical cloaks of aspirational perfection around like it’s a best friends’ wedding. And yes, we can’t get enough of it. The pre Christmas run up is a media frenzy.

In the raw

Posted by Anni Hood on: 15/11/2011

I was thinking of food and nakedness (and why not?) when I came up with the title but then realised that the word ‘raw’ conjures up so many things that have nothing to do with what we’re eating. Written backwards raw becomes ‘war’.

In the mood

Posted by Anni Hood on: 09/11/2011

…for dancing? Hell yeah! Oh to be able to dance properly. It’s creeping up my list of New Year resolutions. I’d love it, and come on, our attractive but non rythmic Italian friend has set the bar quite low.

Getting on with it

Posted by Anni Hood on: 01/11/2011

Sharing the joy, the terror and the fulfilment of going it alone feels like the right thing to do. It’s a hoot, in hindsight at least, most things change and I’ve a sneaky feeling...
