Simple never tasted so good

Simple never tasted so good

Following the enormous success of the ‘Nude’ chain in Jersey, we all waited with bated breath and rumbling stomachs as the business re-imagined the beach café located at the bottom of La Haule hill. Promising to deliver us something a little different as part of their trinity of healthy food outlets, Nude Beach opened its doors last month and I for one, made sure that I was beach ready for them.

A new vibe for Jersey

A new vibe for Jersey

Move over local magazines, there’s a new contender on the rack! Plugging the gap between surfers mag and National Geographic for Jersey, Freevibe looks to showcase the very best talent in Jersey from the sportsmen and women featured on its pages to the writers, photographers and creatives producing the articles.

New Year, Old Me

New Year, Old Me

With only one day to go until we start to make promises to ourselves of better things to come, I’m feeling very cynical about New Year’s resolutions and the concept of a do-over. If clean slates were handed out I fully deserve to be at the top of the list, screw Santa and his ‘nice’ list - I’m owed 2019 and in a big way! But instead of setting goals to be fitter or thinner, to complete new challenges or achieve new career highs I’m giving myself a break. Avoid the effort of creating a new me, I’m looking to get comfortable with the old me instead.
