Ananda Spa, Himalayas

High above the Ganges with uninterrupted views of the Himalayan Mountains, this former Maharaja’s palace has been transformed into a sumptuous oasis dedicated to indulging the senses.


The name ‘Ananda’ is Sanskrit for ‘bliss’, and the spa certainly lives up to its name. The 5-star retreat sits in the far north of India, a region known as the birthplace of yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda practices. Ananda’s highly skilled staff deliver tailored therapeutic treatments derived from ancient Ayurvedic methods. But don’t let the focus on tradition fool you: this is a world-class resort that allows guests to get close to nature while indulging in the lap of luxury.


Nike Studio Wrap Pack

If you fear sliding around on a mat during Pilates or yoga classes, or would simply prefer not to go barefoot, Nike’s Studio Wrap shoes might just be the answer. Designed as a three-part ‘modular’ system comprising a wrap, a ribbon, and a flat, the idea is that wearers feel like they are barefoot, while benefiting from extra protection, traction, and support. And they look pretty smart too.


L’Oréal neon nail shades

A punchy and vibrant nail polish is the ideal way to lift the spirits and add an easy colour pop to any outfit. L’Oréal’s Color Riche Neons are intensely pigmented gel-based nail varnishes that ensure easy application and dazzling colour, and they dry with a deliciously glossy finish. They also provide an effortless way to work the playful Pop Art beauty trend seen on the Spring 2014 runways.
