Slendertone for the Abs

I’ve been putting off writing this post out of sheer embarrassment, but then I probably embarrass myself on a daily basis somehow. I’m going to go head first (or abs first) into giving my views on Slendertone. My first memories of  Slendertone are from when I was a kid when it was a TV Shopping led craze. Your mum, your older sister and even your gran owned one.  It was being advertised everywhere,

Totally Balmy about Pommade Divine Balm

Have you ever had that feeling that you have just uncovered a miracle, and then later discovered actually you are about 200 years too late?  Well that’s what happened to me when it came to the Pommade Divine balm.  It seems that the whole world has gone totally balmy for a balm.  There are Lip balms, face balms, exfoliating balms, cleansing balms and even nipple balms!  So I ask myself

Manuka Honey: The Super Condiment

Having kicked of the New year mentally in the right place (you can read my challenges here), my focus quickly shifted to my diet.  The first meal to tackle was breakfast.  Now I’m not much of a cereal girl but I LOVE bread, which unless you have the best metabolism in the world is not the best food to pig out on. So this naturally led me to the basic

Wake up happy with a Lumie Bodyclock

Reformer Pilates HQ

Two months ago I decided to up my exercise game with Reformer Pilates.

So what is Reformer Pilates? Reformer Pilates is a machine with a series of springs with different resistance levels,

Stylist Magazine LifeLessons

It’s not often that I write a full lifestyle piece, but the Stylist magazine #LifeLessons event that I attended last week inspired me to educate and help others and also to better myself.  So whilst my thoughts and opinions may not be the same as yours or may not count, here are my thoughts on the event, and I leave you to form your own opinions. #LifeLessons was the second

Bath Salts – a healthier and happier you?

 When you think of Salt, its usually the Salt and Pepper kind that gets sprinkled on your food. Have you thought about having Salt in the Bath?  I used to avoid baths as lets face it who has the time to soak in the bath for half an hour, only to come out like a shrivelled prune?  I certainly don’t!  But when my friend Nikki introduced me to the natural
