WELCOME…

May might just be my favourite month of the year. Not one but TWO bank holidays, the emergence of better weather (well, some days) and summer trips on the horizon. As a barbecue obsessive, I’m shopping for my garden as much as for myself. There’s a suntrap that’s calling out for a lounger, and the decking would benefit from a few lanterns and fairy lights for added atmosphere at sundown. Thanks to our Food to Order range, outdoor entertaining has never been easier – I’ll be the host with the most by playing to my strengths in the kitchen (salads, desserts) and getting help with the rest (finger food, fruit platters). Also in my basket: sunscreen for my upcoming trip to Greece (opa!) and St Tropez Bronzing Mousse so I can fake a holiday glow. Whatever your month holds, the Style & Living team have all the inspiration you need for a marvellous May. Enjoy!
