  • Speedy supper

    Anything this colourful has got my vote for dinner. Rustle up this super delicious teriyaki bowl in minutes (seriously there's only 5 steps involved) and let the flavour combo explode in your mouth!

  • PICK OF THE WICKS: FAVOURITE FRAGRANT CANDLES

    The best scented candles I've found locally - perfect for gifts (and, er, self-gifting). And relaaaaax.

    • Book Now: The Grange

      Looking for a posh pad for a big celebration or a family reunion/staycation? This house has eight bedrooms, a games room, two lounges and its own cinema and you can book the entire thing.

    • 3 party cocktails – ready, steady, shake!

      Step away from the Chablis and try something different! We've got 5 copies of a cool new cocktail book to give away - and here are three autumn liveners from it to whet your whistle.

      • Speedy Supper

        No flipping idea what to cook for dinner tonight? Chef Anna Hedworth suggests this super-quick smoked mackerel and spinach kedgeree with cardamom rice. Yum!

      • Lush living

        Corrr blimey - how can I get my living room to look like that? Walnut shelving, herringbone oak parquet floor, a bespoke sofa...

        • Waitrose gin tasting? We’re in!

          Brand new, this service from Waitrose combines our favourite things - gin, friends and hanging out at home. See how Muddy's Ed-in-Chief, Hero Brown, got on and book up pronto this summer, it's a blast!

        • Love interiors and art?

          I've got my eye on this gorgeous graphic cushion, part of Habitat's new collaboration with supercool artist Quentin Jones. Wanna see more?

          • Sexy stationery

            Stationery is one of my specialist subjects. And - whoop! - it's National Stationery Week. Check out this sexy lot. Hubba bubba!

          • Speedy prawn paella

            Fancy a fuss free but flavoursome dinner tonight? Ding ding ding! You have yourself a winner right here. Try this ridiculously easy paella recipe and you may even impress yourself.
