Get your diaries out now. I have a few Brighton events to note down.

Get your diaries out now. I have a few Brighton events to note down to inspire and heal your over-wintered minds and bodies.

This month is a netherworld between winter and spring, so why not get your vitality up with a completely refreshed approach to your personal care.

First up, you might like to feel the love by treating your beloved or spoiling yourself over the weekend. Get soft, supple, and kissable lips with the Aveda Peppymint Breath Refresher, an entirely-natural breath-freshener for £6. Cooling essential oils of peppermint and anise guarantee long-lasting results. It certainly won’t spoil your chances.

Although it looks pricey at £12, the Aveda Lip Saver offers a naturally-spicy infusion of cinnamon leaf, clove and anise oils to lock in your lips' moisture for lasting smoothness. I haven’t tried this yet, but I certainly will. If it is anything like as lovely as the lipsticks I covered last year, it will be highly wearable and truly effective. Aveda have plenty of trusty companions to serve you through Valentine’s Day and beyond.

Illamasqua are pushing Box, its ultimate red lipstick, for this weekend - and I must say it is a red to die for (£18.50). The corresponding nail colour is Throb (£14.50). Need I go on?

Later this month, I suggest that you haul yourself and any new or old loves along to the Healthy Living Fair at the Open Market in London Road. The event takes place on Sunday, February 22. My favourite, Shaloah Skincare, told me all about it, so try to catch up with her skincare products and a whole lot more. There are workshops and a range of natural stalls.

Finally, from February 26 to 28 - on Aveda counters up and down the land - you can participate in the forthcoming launch of the Smooth Infusion Smoothing Masque.

These events are a great chance to learn how to achieve smooth hairstyles during a smoothing session with an Aveda hair stylist. Each appointment takes 45 to 60 minutes and the £15 booking fee is redeemable against any purchases made on the day. You can also try a trend-based makeup application or do an Ayurveda-inspired “bee breath” wellness ritual to encourage relaxation.

It sounds serene. See you there.
