The February newsletter has been released where we take self-care to the next level with the Hayo’u Method, created by Katie Brindle and as featured in The Telegraph. We also launch ilapothecary, created by Denise Leicester, the rather fabulous Tutti London candles and Angelico from Glenda Taylor, the latest venture from the creator of Balm Balm.  Also on the newsletter, limited edition treats from LixirSkin and Phylia de M and we do all the news and feedback.  The read of the day is Chinese New Year: The Year of the Dog.
