Your February issue of JLife Leeds should be hitting your doorstep and appearing at key outlets in the area in the next week. Here is a preview of what’s coming up…
If you or someone you know is preparing for GCSEs or A-levels this year, we know there is a lot going on right now. But keep calm and follow JLife’s revision tips so you can break down the next few months into manageable chunks. We also meet the head of Gateways School and find out what pupils at GSAL have been up to.
Love and Marriage
It’s wedding season! The invites are coming in, the plans are being finalised and we are here to help you make those final decisions about your big day. So, if you’re still trying to work out what the best man will wear, struggling to make the final call on a venue, or need to choose your honeymoon destination, use our guide to help you. And if you’re considering popping the question, we’ve even suggested some proposal ideas.
Be My Valentine
On the subject of romance, it’s Valentine’s Day soon. If you’re feeling loved up, we help you get Valentine’s Day date-ready with a selection of beauty and grooming inspiration, fashion picks, and gift ideas.
On the Clock
We head to the leafy suburb of Oakwood, the corner of North Leeds that offers a collection of eateries and shops beside the lush greenery of Roundhay Park.
…so many interesting people. There’s Evangeline Spachis’ chat with comedian, Ashley Blaker; the latest from Louise Hager, chairman of Chai Cancer Care; Headrow Gallery’s Maxwell Roberts talks about his journey in the art world; Laura Sefton’s interview with the inspirational mental health campaigner and recently-made MBE, Jonny Benjamin, and an insightful look at intellectual property law with solicitor, Richard Kempner.
