WIN A Stress-Free Trip To Stobo Castle, Scotland

I’m a firm believer that a relaxing holiday is great for the body and soul, leaving you refreshed and ready to take on the world on your return.  AXA PPP healthcare confirms this with research into reducing every day and work related stress.

According to a recent survey, one in every four adults experiences stress on a daily basis.  Major life changes such as bereavement, moving house, divorce and even happy occasions including marriage or a new baby can trigger stress.  Sometimes the cause of stress is difficult to pinpoint and can lead to feeling overwhelmed and anxious.

Symptoms of stress can show themselves in a number of ways, from poor sleep and loss of energy to mood swings and a feeling of loss of control.  Avoiding and managing stress as it occurs can benefit your long-term health and help re-balance your life.  One helpful stress-reliever is to remove yourself from the daily grind and indulge in a little ‘me-time’ with a holiday or short weekend break.

AXA PPP is offering one lucky winner a luxurious stay for two for 2 nights at the five-star Stobo Castle in Scotland – organised by Visit Scotland.

Included in the stay is a complimentary back massage and access to the spa facilities, access to guided country walks, evening activities and optional fitness classes.  Meals are also offered, from dinner on the day of arrival to lunch before departure, plus £200 spending money and £200 towards the cost of travel.

Swarovski Launches Fashion-Inspired Online Travel Guide

Swarovski has the key to travelling stylishly with a brand new global jetsetting online guide called Swarovski Journey, focusing on a fabulous new destination each month for the next five months.

Inspired by Swarovski’s tropical SS13 collection, the guide begins with the glam party city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  For an insider’s view of Rio, Swarovski asked London-based Beauty Editor and travel blogger Bridget March to share her city secrets.

Bridget took a 14-month sabbatical from editing in London and travelled across Asia, USA, Latin America and East Africa, reporting her finds from around the globe on her blog, Beauty and the Backpack.  Her top tips for Rio de Janeiro include passionfruit Caipirinhas and fresh seafood at one of Madonna’s haunts Satyricon, the chic Philippe Starck-designed hotel Fasano and Brazilian boutique shopping in Ipanema.

Each exotic destination guide shares how to ‘get the look’ with Swarovski jewellery and accessories, which are available to buy online.  For Rio de Janeiro, it’s all about sparkling silver and vibrant pink pieces studded with crystals – perfect for complementing a sun-kissed tan.

Best of all, Swarovski has partnered with luxury holiday experts Kuoni to offer readers the chance to win a once in a lifetime holiday to the destination featured each month.
