Welcome to our magazine archive library for Luxe Magazine.
I'm writing this the day after the big fat shake-up that was Election 2015. Deadline day and an irresistible political thrills TV all-nighter aren't really a recommended combination. Should have gone to bed but got sucked into the drama of Jeremy's swing-o-meter and the pathos of defeat speeches.
So after about two hours of shuteye, today has been fuelled by serious amounts of caffeine and a discreet dab of miracle eye-bag cream. It was made for election night, I kid you not. Bet Dimbleby had a stash under his desk.
So whilst thoughts are of democracy and debate, how about we bring you a manifesto of our own. Ours is guaranteed to bring out the feel-good factor for summer. It says a yes to an investment in self for a start. Give yourself time to sit back and enjoy the good things in your life.
Food lovers will be raving about the great new seafood set-up in Amble, lured to stove or barbecue by some mouth-watering recipes. Culture vultures can tick the box of choice from a line-up of fine summer candidates.
Our big-hitter is the fantastic Food Trail supplement: hop in the car, campervan or train carriage and take a taste tour from York to Edinburgh. Sunny days and delicious food get everyone's vote.
Don't forget, we are with you every Thursday too with our Luxe Loves The Weekend email bulletin.
