I don’t know about you, but by mid-January my resolve to stick to healthy regimes tends to falter a little. That’s why a little encouragement from this week’s Style & Living and a few cleverly chosen pick-me-ups go a long way. Get your day off to a great start with a hearty and delicious breakfast of wholegrain granola (see my Editor’s Pick), and don’t miss lingerie editor Maggie Davis’ suggestion of a sleek and sporty crop top – as featured in Glamour magazine – which will help you stick to any fitness resolutions. Look out too for menswear editor Ian Wright’s Trend Spotlight, which will guide you through the new season’s great wardrobe basics, and keep kids warm and dry with a jolly yellow rain mac. Womenswear editor Charlene Barton continues the cheery theme with a pink 1950s-inspired skirt that will take you effortlessly from work to play. Have a great week.
