We can't say that autumn isn't here. The leaves are turning colour so fast now, one more day or so of cold weather and they will be forming a carpet on the ground. This is the time of year to reevaluate your self care programme and diet, and if, like me you like to eat with the seasons, this is…

Having spent a week in Austria I have been inspired by the simple but also complex breakfast that is muesli. I've always liked porridge in the winter as a filling warming breakfast, but as spring moves in, my need for a warming breakfast moves out. I tend then to resort to spelt toast, which doesn't really fill me up enough.…

I juice everyday. Every morning. It ensures I get my 'five or more a day.' More vegetables than fruit and straight in to my tummy. All those super enzymes, vitamins and minerals. When I started juicing there were no Nutribullets. Just juicers. There is a place for both, but personally, first thing in the morning, I like a lovely clean juice.…

Well, here we go, a blog post about something I have just discovered, and I am truly amazed at the results. I'm also astounded that I haven't heard of it before. Although we all know things happen at times when we are ready for them, and maybe this is the perfect timing for me. A good friend of mine, Paula…

So the college reunion last weekend with 10 beauty therapists, many not in the industry any more, was a huge success. One of those events that you get yourself all worked up about and then find everything just slots in to how it used to be. Our class was very close. There were two groups of Hair and Beauty students…

Yesterday I had the feeling of overwhelming stress. Or was that just adrenalin that I have missed out on over the past few years? No, it was an all consuming panic.... An sudden rush of 'Oh my good god what am I doing?' type of feeling.... A feeling that I remembered from when I had my two salons. A feeling…

Juicing is a funny thing. Until about four years ago, I knew nothing about it. It was a friend of mine, AnnSee Yeoh who introduced me to it, and it changed my life. It also ensured that my lovely husband got closer to his 'Five A Day' by me gradually testing different 'recipes' on him! The best one is beetroot…

Why did I do it? Well, sometimes you need an upgrade. As many of you will know, I'm quite an avid juicer. Not as a full on juice only detox, but a healthy way to start the day. I like the process of choosing which vitamins I need and having a juice for all seasons. More root veg in the…

As we move in to summer, the usual 'Get Fit for Holidays' advertising appears in magazines and newspapers. Bikini bodies and which spray tan is best. I notice that those of you who haven't started juicing yet are asking the same questions that were covered in this blog back in January, as you are feeling a summer 'cleanse' would be…

Raw Chocolate is becoming very popular because it is totally dairy free, and also free from refined sugar. It just contains a syrup like raw honey, or a product called Sweet Freedom. It is organic, mainly sourced from Ecuador and growers are normally members of the Fair Trade Association. As it is not heated above 42 degrees this classes it as 'Raw'. It's…
