Her philosophy from the outset was to create products which are elegant, luxurious and with long-lasting fragrances. Gatcombe Candle Co. is stocked in independent shops and salons around the country, and of course you can buy online too – claim 10 per cent off using ARMY10 at the checkout.

Banish boring hair days

Annie Beau Accessories’ beautiful range is made from carefully selected quality fabrics, for children and adults – all handmade to order by military spouse Suzanne Kavanagh – you can read more about her story on page 65 of the winter edition.

During the pandemic, Suzanne started making re-usable face masks for other military families. To make them more enjoyable to wear, she created matching headbands and hair bows, which have since become the main focus of her business.

We’ve teamed up to offer three lucky winners a £20 gift voucher each – choose any products in the current range, or treat a friend – just click here to enter!
