Lush Sappho: A Scent of Poetry and Love

Born probably about 620 BCE, antiquity’s greatest female artist, Sappho, was Greece's notable poet, a woman whose life is as fascinating as it is controversial. Her literary skills were praised as much as her sexuality was criticised for loving the bodies of other women. Sappho came from the Greek island of Lesbos, and the name of this place gained a whole new use after Sapphos's sexual pref...

Du hast (Ein-)Schlafprobleme? Versuch’s doch mal mit „Schlafyoga“

Ich habe schon immer ziemlich gut geschlafen – und das auch problemlos überall: auf dem Boden, im Flugzeug, während einer langen Autofahrt. Trotzdem habe ich in letzter Zeit immer wieder Probleme beim Einschlafen. Also liege ich hellwach um 2 Uhr im Bett und bleibe in merkwürdigen Ecken von TikTok hängen, anstatt mich ins Traumland zu verabschieden. Jetzt habe ich aber etwas gefunden, von dem ich glaube, dass es mein Leben verändern könnte: Yoga Nidra – auch bekannt als Schlafyoga oder „yo...

Spotlight: Universal Standard

I sang the praises of Universal Standard back in 2017, but they deserve another spotlight because they are now the world’s most size-inclusive fashion brand. Since my first spotlight they’ve added more sizes to their clothing assortment, and opened a showroom in Seattle which is a five minute walk from our loft. I’ve taken clients there and we always come back smiling after a delightful experience. Universal Standard believes that style should be the only filter when you shop. As a result, they ...

I’m actually keeping a list of things he’d rather do than, well, me. The list is pretty depressing.

Dan Lawrence: first look in Test cricket

We don’t believe you can draw meaningful conclusions from players’ debuts – but we report on them anyway. As a connoisseur of part-time bowling, we are greatly disappointed to have missed the two overs Dan Lawrence bowled on his debut (0-10). Fortunately, his batting (73 and 21 not out) provided plenty of fun and japes and the promise of plenty of mad shots in the years to come. The England batsmen we like the most generally fall into one of two categories: The almost wilfully unspec...
