  When I first moved here to the countryside after selling my two salons, I knew exactly which direction I was taking. I wanted to be able to treat clients on a one-to-one basis in an environment that enabled total peace and relaxation. I left behind the bustling high street salon environment and wanted to be in a space where…

The veils between the worlds become thin. It's halloween. What does this mean to you? When I was a child back in the 70s, there was no Trick or Treat. The most you got was apple bobbing, but to be honest I think that more on Bonfire Night. I can't actually remember anything happening on All Hallows Eve. It has only…

moon phases

Are you waxing or waning? I used to be very confused by this terminology, then one day it just made sense. A waxing moon in one that is ‘filling up’, as in becoming full. Depicted in your diary and calendar as a white circle. A full-up moon. Then, when it goes past that stage, it starts to wane. It loses…

It's funny when I look back on my life how many people have asked, 'Are you a witch?' Jokingly I would say yes! There must have been a reason why they asked though. I'm certainly not part of a coven, I don't dress up in a cloak (although I've always rather liked the idea) and I don't caste spells as…

Everyone needs some time out from their normal routine for a de-stress. A recharge of the batteries and time to recalibrate the system. We ensure that our cars get a regular yearly service, so why not our body? Probably because we don't realise we need some down time until it's too late. We run on all cylinders and only notice…

So we are back to the issue of ageing again. It seems to come with age. If you see what I mean. It's not until you get to a certain age that you really start to think about it. A birthday is meant to be a joyful occasion. A celebration. It can also be a depressing, which is quite odd…

It's a funny thing closure. Letting go is also quite a weird one. I seem to be finding lots of articles on letting go all over social media. I'm wondering if it's an age thing? If people could learn to let go earlier in their lives, then there would be less to let go of when they get to a…

I find some days I'm really in the yoga groove and other days I could wish it would get out of my face! I mean, I see so many people on instagram making some amazing shapes in stunning surroundings that I know I will never be able to do, and instead of acknowledging the post for what it is, it…

I'm actually writing this while on an flight home after a week of skiing, as I see how things have changed so fast in the world of technology. In the 'old days' I'd be making notes with pen and paper, now I can type into notes on my iPad and save everything ready to drop in to the newsletter over…

organic turmeric

I'm always interested in anything natural that can help health and wellbeing, and last year I discovered the powerful ways of the turmeric root. Turmeric in your diet used to be just in your curry powder. Looking like ginger, but more orange, you can now find this fresh rhizome in most good veg shops near the garlic, and chilli. Famed…
