Who says you need to travel far for the perfect weekend getaway? We have been blessed with an incredible weather, so what better excuse to pack your bags and get yourself and your family away for a UK mini-break. Whether you're looking to spend the weekend basking in the sun, or you want to head to a serene countryside location, Sopwell House is the perfect place for you. This 4-star hotel has everything you need for a luxury spa break that won't break the bank. There is an indoor pool, steam room and sauna, not to mention an impressive selection of spa treatments available too. When you're done with the pampering, the hotel restaurant and brasserie offer up a host of delicious dishes, or for those after a tipple, there's the conservatory bar and the cocktail lounge.
Yoga has a reputation for its healing powers, so it only makes sense that experiencing a four-day Fit, Lean and Clean Retreat will positively shift my mindset. So I signed up for my first yoga retreat at Kaliyoga's invitation, but not without considerable trepidation. I remember two cautionary, albeit unhelpful, thoughts running through my mind: What will the food be like? Will I be able to keep up with the twice-a-day yoga classes? Even though I wasn't quite sure what it would entail, this escape at the beginning of the year seemed the perfect opportunity to give myself the permission to truly relax. Deeply knowledgeable about all things yoga, ambitious and passionate, Rosie and Jonji set up their first Kaliyoga retreat in 2002 after falling in love with the Alpujarra region in Spain. The climate and picturesque mountain views provided an ideal atmosphere for experiencing 'sat cit ananda' - truth wisdom love.

A few weeks back I was invited by BMW on a very exciting press trip to Munich to celebrate the launch of their new BMW 4 Series Convertible. We arrived on a gloomy Tuesday morning and headed straight to our hotel, the uber-chic Flushing Meadows. One cup of coffee later, I was out exploring the beautiful city before the rain made an appearance.
