Step Back in Time

Pure Cafe: Pure Health

Pure Cafe: Pure Health

What does the expression 'fast food' mean to you? For most of us it probably means a cheeky burger, grabbed on the go and maybe eaten in the car or (as long as the boss doesn't catch us) at our desks. Fast food is readily available, outlets offer you the chance to take your snack away and it does serve a purpose – but does it do you any good? Given the fat, salt and sugar content of most fast...

The Thirty Second of March

The Thirty Second of March

In 1392 Chaucer wrote: “Syn March was gon thritty dayes and two…”, which some readers believed meant the thirty second of March rather than, correctly, the 2nd of May. But the thirty second of March is, in fact, the 1st of April, upon which date, in “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale”, the vain cockerel Chauntecleer is tricked by a mischievous fox. In Spain, of course, such trickery takes... [More...]

Endometriosis is a chronic condition that affects young women. It has a high prevalence (one in every 10 women) but it does not have the same gravity in all cases. The most widely accepted theory about its development is the formation of endometrium (which is the layer of tissue lining the inside of the uterus and expelled at every menstrual cycle) where it doesn’t belong. The most common... [More...]

Revolutionary Industrial

Revolutionary Industrial

The profile of industrial interior design has risen significantly over the last 10 to 15 years. It was a style representative of a marked and purposeful shift from the polished and perfect to the edgy and unrefined. Bars started changing their once slick interiors to feature exposed brick, lighting made from copper piping and finished off with Edison bulbs. Concrete made a comeback and we saw... [More...]

Twin Peaks: 25 Years On

Twin Peaks: 25 Years On

Once upon a time (actually 1990, but even a year is a long time in the history of TV drama) there was an American TV series. Not only was it a stonking great hit in its own right, it made its contemporaries look lumbering, clumsy and more than a little old-fashioned. When, after the second series ended in 1991, it was announced that the drama had reached the end of its run fans were bereft.... [More...]

Why should you juice?

Why should you juice?

I have been regularly juicing for the past five years after a good friend of mine introduced me to its benefits. She explained that the body has to use a lot of energy digesting food, whereas with juices your body gets a rest from all the hard work and all the nutrients go straight into your system. You might be saying to yourself  “Well, I eat a lot of cooked vegetables with my meal so... [More...]
