Its all bananas …… or is it?

Well firstly I have to apologise as this month’s blog is slightly late! “What”, I hear you cry, …… “I’ve been sat at home waiting for it to come out “ ….. I’m sure that’s not really the case and you’ve probably not even realised its late. However, as I’m an honest person, I thought I’d tell you!

LOVE your nails

I’m always trying to keep my hands well groomed. I have always always, for as long as I can remember, used hand cream. In fact I’m mad about it. I have a tube/pot in as many places as I can, i.e. by each sink and in my hand bag. I just don’t feel right if, after washing my hands, I don’t moisturise them. Although this has been a habit throughout my life, hopefully, it will, at the very least, have kept my hands soft and looked after as I get older.

June – Happy Feet

By on June 6, 2017 in Health & Beauty Blog | 0 comments

Summer is nearly here and with it comes a change in wardrobe. We all switch from wearing heavy sweaters, boots and thick socks to short-sleeve shirts, shorts and sandals. Are your feet healthy and ready to come out of hiding?

Happy feet make a happy person and are something we often neglect. How many of us pay much attention to our feet in winter, for instance. It’s usually only when summer is nearing and – oh my goodness – the feet have to be “on show” that we suddenly reach for the pumice stone/brush/ped egg etc and try to give them a bit of an MOT.

May’s here – Look After Yourself

What I’ve realised

So I give out lots of advice about how very important it is to look after yourself, both your health, stress levels, nutrition, exercise etc etc. However, in March I got sick (don’t panic, only a cold!).

I’d had a busy time, working, getting my new treatment room ready – I’d given myself a deadline (I know not why……) and obviously got a bit run down and succumbed to some nasty germs.

Bideford’s Jewel in the Torridge

By on April 5, 2017 in Health & Beauty Blog, Uncategorised | 0 comments

As some of you may know I have collaborated with Donna Henry of Mad Henry’s Tea Room at Riverside Cottage (1 mile outside Bideford) to provide a Beauty Pamper & Vintage High Tea – am sure you can guess which bit I provide!

A bit of background

I joined a Ladies Networking Group in January last year as I wanted to mix with likeminded businesswomen, meet some people, get some support and generally have someone to talk to. Yes, being a sole trader can be a lonely business sometimes

The Importance of Giving Back

Back to Beauty & Mad Henry’s Vintage Tea Room – The Importance of Giving Back

Some of you may know that I volunteer at The Long House in Holsworthy, North Devon Hospice’s (relatively) new building. The Long House opened in September 2015 and has provided over 1,200 sessions of care since. This ranges from one-to-one counselling and complementary therapies, to family craft and nurse consultations days.

Wellbeing days are held each month where those dealing with a life-limiting illness and their carers can come along and get their hair cut, have a facial, massage, reflexology or manicure. It’s a chance to relax and be pampered.
