Something you body will love first thing in the morning…

I have started my day the same way for years now. With my body working hard regenerating overnight, I love to give it something to boost it before starting my day.

It is also super easy to make: a cup of hot water and lemon.

I find lemon is a super powerful fruit. Great to use when you have stinky hands when cooking to deodorise by simply rubbing it into your fingers.

There are also so many health benefits: Vitamin C, great for bowel movement, antibacterial, supports the immune system and helps fight infections.

A lovely way to start every day by being kind to your body and tremendously soothing.

 

 

A healthier environment

Would you be prepared to commit to one small change to contribute to a healthier environment?

My latest small change has been to replace my cotton pads with recyclable ones. They come in a gorgeous little bag which you can tie on your towel rail. They are softer, bigger and quite obviously so much cheaper. Win, win, win! 🌸🍃

I got mine from my refill market based in Milton Keynes in the UK but they are becoming extremely popular if you do not live in the area.

Ringana Fresh Date, our first wellness and fitness event!

Since studying biomedicine and nutrition a few years back, I always knew that I would do something in that arena at some stage whilst being so passionate about wellness.

I concocted various formats but could not quite figure out what it was going to be exactly until I came across Ringana. Yesterday was my first Ringana Fresh Date, all about wellness, fitness, sustanaibility and ethics!

What pure joy when you get to share your passion!  My daughter Clara joined me and was phenomenal whilst talking about sustainability, only 7 years old!

The first of many and I can run these pop up events anywhere in the UK so if you fancy a social gathering and would like to find out more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The deceit with labels in your cosmetics

Since having worked in the beauty industry, I have been horrified by the amount of deceit as a consumer when it comes to claims with beauty products!

The reason why it is a billion pound industry is because for the very large majority, they don’t work so we buy more and more and MORE… We keep on buying, trying and multi billion pound corporations are benefiting from our naivety and our well earned money.  Large corporations unfortunately spend all their money on marketing and celebrity endorsements rather than the quality of the products. It is no wonder that cosmetic surgery is booming.

So here are some ridiculous claims to look out for:

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

There is no regulation around the minimum amount required in a product therefore it could be as much as 0.01%. That would be the equivalent of you telling me you exercise every day to keep fit and in reality exercise 1 second a day!

CLINICALLY PROVEN

Again, there is no regulation. It could therefore claim to be “clinically proven to reduce wrinkles” but that could be by 0.000000000001%. Erm, yes, quite clearly you would need a powerful magnifying glass to see any difference.

HYPOALLERGENIC

This does not mean that you will have no allergies; it means you could be less likely to have an allergy. If you are buying an expensive product and with the amount of chemicals and allergies present in cosmetics, you are quite clearly taking your chances.

NATURAL AND ORGANIC

Guess what… no regulation! It could be as little as 1% and the rest all synthetic. What a disgrace.

DERMATOLIGICALLY TESTED

Yep, you know the drill by now, no legal regulation. Tested by a dermatologist yes but it could be on one person and what tests are we talking about?!

SUITABLE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Sensitive to what? It may have soothing ingredients but I could be sensitive to one or more of the ingredients?

So basically all these claims have no validity, seriously, stop wasting your money. Don’t be fooled and be in charge!

 This is why I love Ringana so much.

100% active substances, 100% produced fresh on order, 100% philosophy and 100% transparent. No ridiculous ambiguous claims, simply pure fresh effectiveness and the products are all based on personal recommendations.

Bowls and fabulous nature activities at Hollington Wood

There were mainly older generations at this lovely bowls club in Stony Stratford but such truly lovely people and stunning grounds. It is actually a really complex but therapeutic activity. For an unusual time out, you can find more details here: Stony Stratford Bowls Club

The owner of this beautiful land opens his grounds for open days and it is full of natural activities for the children. On this occasion, the doors were open for us all to also admire the sensational display of bluebells. I noticed however how tall these were this year and the owner believes that it is all due to climate change… another sign highlighting how important it is for us to start making changes now before it may be truly too late.

If you live in the South East of England, I cannot recommend a day out in this beautiful ancient woodland. More details can be found here: Hollington Wood
