An extreme set of circumstances and ill health, including Crohn's Disease, high blood pressure, Reynaud's Disease, hormonal migraines and getting sick with anything that was going around, set me on a journey of discovery. This journey was, and still is, one that amazes me and inspires me every day. At the core of it all... Continue Reading →

Cold Showers & Raynaud’s Disease

If the thought of starting the day with a cold shower sends a shiver down your spine, you're not alone. That was my view too just 12 months ago. However, they have now become a life-changing, invigorating and, dare I say it, enjoyable part of my daily routine. Fighting cold with cold - or how... Continue Reading →

Facial Oil

Facial oil or moisturiser? I was firmly in the ‘moisturiser’ camp but in recent years I’ve switched allegiance. I had faithfully used e45 cream as my face moisturiser for 20 years! Until recently nothing else worked for me. I tried lots of the posh brands but they always irritated my sensitive skin. I didn’t mind... Continue Reading →

Eye Make-up

Natural eye make-up. I've been inspired to swap my eye make-up to natural alternatives since reading Janey Lee Grace's book 'How to Look Great Naturally ... Without Ditching the Lipstick'. After discovering the damage that hidden chemicals can inflict on the body, I'm trying to remove toxins from my home and skincare regime. My plan... Continue Reading →
