It’s food for thought

MANY of us have heard about the vegan diet, and have all sorts of misconceptions about what it entails.

Alcohol link to dementia

ALCOHOL-USE disorders are the most important, preventable, risk factors for the onset of all types of dementia, especially early-onset.

This study looked, specifically, at the effect of alcohol-use disorders, and […]

Flush those kidneys

Sugar’s not so sweet after all

FAMILIES are opting for easy-to-eat, sugar-packed products, which pack out supermarket shelves, to the detriment of youngsters’ health.

It’s a wrap

WE don’t suffer seasons too much, here in Tenerife, but there are times you do need to wrap up a little more. This season’s jackets see luxury fabrics from leather and fur to suede (all faux of course) and velvet texture. Look for waist-skimming box jackets, and knee-length, wrap-over coats. Detailing is the key; keep […]

On the fringe

THEY can disguise a multitude of sins, open the eyes and dramatically change face shapes. Fringes are always on trend. It doesn’t matter what face shape you have, because there’s one to suit nearly everybody. If you have a fuller forehead, then your best option is a side fringe, or a full one. This will […]

Brave new bold

By Carl Pattison ONE word that sums up fashion in 2018 is COLOUR. No matter what the slant on the current trend this year, we will see the emergence of everything from your primary colours to soft pastels, but put together in a way as not to blend, but to complement. Look out for clashing […]
