Even though temperatures are at their maximum September signals the end of summer and getting ready for a new season, school year, or beginning of new projects once the lazy days of summer of over. After a good rest we start to make plans for the autumn and leave the days of sun, sea and fun behind us – until next year.

As temperatures are still high, turn down the heat a little with some recipes for cool ice lollies made with fresh fruit and as much (or as little) sugar as you would like to add – no matter how much that is they will still be healthier than the ones you get in the shops!

Exercise throughout the summer is tough at the best of times. Jovan Reljic talks about the importance of keeping hydrated to keep from overheating and putting the body under too much strain.

As summer draws to an end, it’s time to hit the shops and pick up some trendy pieces to get you through the autumn. Check out our vintage inspired fashion shoot and see what Lyndsey Grima has to say about back-to-school fashion staples.
