For some women coming to terms with the menopause is like admitting you’re a old dried up hag. I didn’t feel like that. In fact it took me a while to have any emotions about it. I think I was in shock and busy dealing with my symptoms. If anything I would make fun of it and tell everyone. It seemed ridiculous and like a bad joke
So I think I’ll start with what the Hell I am doing standing in a pharmacy with Dani looking at menopause vitamins at the age of 42. I kid you not it was like an out-of-body experience. I’d just received a phone call from my doctor saying unfortunately the results of my blood tests confirmed I was on the menopause
Well what a rollercoaster that has been. I can’t believe how quickly the last three months have gone but I’m so happy to be back with Wendy on the blog and am really excited with the new content ideas we’re planning for the season ahead. As we’ve mentioned previously we’re not going to become a mummy blog by any means but I will be sharing experiences and advice related to motherhood if I think it’ll be of interest.
As much as I love a good British summer it is often plagued by a hazy pollen filled cloud for me. Since the age of around eight the summer months have meant puffy eyes, an unbearably itchy throat and a streaming nose.
I first met Rosie Birkett when we worked together on a shoot where she was doing a collaboration with M&S. I had the pleasure of doing her makeup, as well as the pleasure of spending the whole day sampling all of her delicious recipes - tough job!
We all have a favourite face cream or treatment, whilst this is a great start, it has to be said that beautiful skin starts from the inside. Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of nutrients is essential to help their growth.
The amazing healing properties of herbs are well-known and I’m a big fan of brewing up a daily mug of herbal tea to get those benefits in a simple, safe and effective way which is always a welcomed alternative to pharmaceuticals. Tea, essentially an infusion of herbs and spices, is not only a way
We all know that ‘morning after the night before’ when you've suddenly forgotten you’re a grown up and your hangover will definitely let you know that you’re not 18 any more. Well unfortunately for me I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of that child spirit,
This just happens to be one of my favourite subjects in life. I’m very good at sleep deprivation but I also love a good night's sleep and I get pretty obsessed if I’m not getting enough shut eye. Unfortunately, when I have a 'busy head' or as my mother has often said, “over tired,” I really struggle with a good night's sleep.
Now it has to be said that acne isn't fun on any level. It’s pretty cruel when you’re a teenager. Yet it seems even more unfair as an adult when you have new wrinkles to deal with. Well that was me. I hit 35 and I had new friends on my jawline and neck.
I hope I’ve managed to keep your attention past the heading. I know all the faddy diet talks can be a little tiring and overwhelming. But this is interesting, promise! Two years ago I went to the doctors after being ill for months.
Exercising always felt like a chore. I could never work out why I didn’t get excited about it like some people, my tactics to avoid it were pretty impressive. Now I finally get it, you just have to find out what makes you tick. I was first introduced to Pilates by an Osteopath, after having a few back problems - a perk of my job.
I’ve been hearing about homemade raw energy bars for a while now and really wanted to try them. So as Soheil is in the final stages of Marathon training and eating us out of house and home I thought it was the perfect time to put the Nutribullet to the test!
