AS SEEN IN

Tai chi might conjure up visions of elderly people in a park or simply slowly moving your hands in soft waves–but there’s much more to it than that. The practice is having a moment, as searches are up 189% on Pinterest. I tried a class and can tell you it’s both calming and challenging in equal measures. To learn more, I spoke to clinical acupuncturist Feras, who has been practising tai chi for over 25 years. He’s an indoor student of Master Ma Bao Guo and Master Hui Kit Wah, and a senior instructor within the Taoist Arts Organisation.


To find everything you need to know before a class, what to expect from a class, the health benefits and more - head over to Byrdie, now.

Whilst I'm loving Instagram's flurry of Summer outfit picks, it seems to be the accessories that I'm really coveting right now. So many great shoefies, so little time. The best news? All of my favourites so far are from the high street. You wouldn’t know it though - nothing about these finds screams budget.

When it comes to colour, there are a few specific shades dominating the new-in sections of my favourite stores.

I'm going to let you in on which sections of the colour wheel you should be focusing your attention on for spring/summer 2018, and the best coloured garments to buy now.

Amongst all its faults, sometimes Instagram throws up a real gem. I’m not sure how long I’d been Insta-stalking Emma Low, creator of Pot Yer Tits Away Luv — I was captivated by her handcrafted creations and trusty sidekick, Lady the cat.

Just when you’d got your head around Hygge, there’s a new wellness movement on the scene. I’ve seen the words “wabi-sabi” pop up in magazines, on Pinterest boards and on my Instagram feed over the last few months. There have been chic coffee table books published on the subject, and it’s even being hailed as the inspiration for the interior trends of the moment.

Sad facts: Consumer waste has increased more than tenfold over the 20th century—from 40 kilogrammes to 560 kilogrammes of waste per person per year. Rainforests are being cut down at a rate of 100 acres a minute, with an estimated 50,000 species inhabiting our tropical forests become extinct annually.


Every one of us can make a small change and have a positive impact. I've chosen the chicest products that are doing great things for our planet, for Byrdie. And it needed cost big bucks, prices range from £2 to £90. The feel-good factor is free.
