New Year, new you – are you falling for that cliché too?

And I’m back! Happy New Year to all and whoever may be reading this. It’s a New Year and a New Me! Haha…I can almost hear you nearly choke on your tea! Such a cliché right! Yes, it’s a new year, but not so dissimilar to the previous year (minus the fact that it’s 2017 not 2016) and well, as much as I would have like to have morphed into

Personalisation at its best at Boots!

Boots, our favourite high street drug store, has pulled it out of the bag this year by not only providing their stores and online site as a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs, but by bringing a new experience of personalisation to life for the first time this Christmas! And I’m definitely not referring to the personalisation of the printed T-shirt kind. From personalising makeup bags to body butter tubs,

Breathe easy this Autumn Winter with Aromatherapy Associates Essence

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring us comfort and make us feel better. For me it’s this little bottle from Aromatherapy Associates called Breathe Essence. Hands up if you have already had a cold this Autumn/Winter? – That’s me! and not just one, but two mini colds. I refer to them as mini colds as I think I’ve fought them very well by staying wrapped up and

H2Only are you up for the fundraising challenge?

This summer has seen many families and friends make the most of the glorious sunshine by some of the UK’s well-loved beaches and seaside towns. Whilst the sea water is so temping to jump into on a really hot day, there is a darker side of the sea that we seem to forget. It’s something that can result in some horrible tragedies like we have seen this year along our

Have you given yourself a pat on the back for what you have achieved be it in your everyday routine, life goals or your career? Answer: probably never! If you work and live in London

Does your eye cream contain SPF?

All skincare specialists will drum it down on you how important it is to wear SPF and so will I! SPF protects your skin from sun damage, skin diseases and can slow down the signs of aging. These days it is not a constant battle nor is it expensive to buy a face cream that contains an SPF rating higher than 10! It was during a conversation with one of

Cooking with Organic Japanese Umami Paste

Trying to jazz up my lunches and dinners is a constant quest that I am on as there is nothing worse than a bland meal or a boring salad.  So when I was invited to Clearspring HQ to sample, learn and even cook side by side with Madonna’s previous chef I was quick to accept! That is when I discovered Umami, Clearspring’s latest launch. What is umami? Umami is the

The Bold is Beautiful Project

For a title, “Bold is Beautiful” is quite a strong opening line or statement to start a post with. To feel and look beautiful is not about receiving compliments from other people, but how you personally feel inside and out. With styling tools, accessories, and endless amount of skincare and makeup at our disposal, we can all re-style and make ourselves up in any way we wish. So what happens

Indulge in the Super Spice of 2016 with Higher Living’s Golden Turmeric Tea

As super spices go, it’s all about turmeric at the moment that every health article or health food blogger is raving about it. This wonder spice has been used in cooking (the yellow powder mainly in curries) and as part of traditional Indian medicine and culture for many centuries. The beauty of turmeric, unlike other expensive super foods or grains that get pushed into the limelight, is that it is

Mio Fit Skin for Life

Okay, so who joined the gym in January but hasn’t looked at their gym trainers in the last month? This is the common scenario that many of us see ourselves in. I’m partially guilty of the above! I always train once a week with a personal trainer, walk a lot, and try and go to a few cardio/interval training classes and yoga where I can. However, the past few months
