The body chef Journey results

May 11, 2015 admin 0

I have just completed a week on the Bodychef flat belly diet and the results are in. After following the plan for 7 days I have lost 3lbs, 2 inches off my waist and 2 inches from around my hips. I am very happy with these results. The best bit, however, is I no longer resemble a dancing caterpillar whilst trying to get into my skinny jeans. When I started this journey the ultimate goal […]

Funkin Cocktail Mixers

May 10, 2015 admin 9

Back in February I had the honour of interviewing the legendary DJ goldirocks who is also the brand ambassador for Funkin cocktails. To repay the favour for a brilliant interview I thought it only fair to put the cocktails through their paces and tell you all about them. The best way to review cocktails of course is to throw a party, so that’s what I did. I enlisted the help of one of my best […]

Body Chef day 3 and 4 – the diet continues

May 7, 2015 admin 0

Day 3 Ok so I’m five days in and I haven’t starved to death yet. I’m also still following the diet which has got to be a record for me, normally by day five, scrap that day 2 I have succumbed to the temptation of the biscuit tin, or at this time of year the unfinished selection boxes hidden at the back of the cupboard. Tonight I even went out to a bonfire event with […]

Boomf – photos on marshmallows!

May 6, 2015 admin 6

This has got to be the most bizarre confectionary I have ever come across. Marshmallows with photographs on – completely bonkers. Yet it totally works. Why? Because we live in a society that is obsessed with personalisation, selfies and food. When I first discovered Boomf I was instantly transported to Willy Wonkers factory, because, let’s face it, who else could dream this up? Well that dreamer was James Middleton, who along with business partner Andy […]

Body chef January Journey

May 4, 2015 admin 6

The Christmas bulge has finally gotten the better of me. My work pants are starting to feel tight and trying to get into my skinny jeans involves a somewhat embarrassing impression of a caterpillar trying to dance. Action is required, whoever told me the Christmas pud calories didn’t count because it was Christmas was seriously delusional. So, what to do? I shopped around and found so many options; calorie control, shakes, juices, sugar free, fat […]

Fluers naturals candle

April 30, 2015 admin 3

I ADORE candles. Scented, coloured, tea lights, glass jar, floating, I try them all. There is just something about candles that calms me down and helps me relax, and of course candlelight is the most forgiving light of all. My other, ever increasing, obsession is with organic and eco-friendly products. The more I review the more I learn and I simply can’t get enough. So you can imagine my elation at being sent a candle […]

Rescue Remedy -A product review

April 26, 2015 admin 0

As an emotional wellbeing trainer I often talk about coping mechanisms, stress relievers and relaxation techniques. I am often asked about non-medical interventions and homeopathic remedies, so being able to test the Bach flower remedies was a brilliant opportunity. The mastermind behind the rescue remedy range is Dr.Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician and pathologist who created 38 flower based remedies to counteract 38 negative states of mind in the 1920’3 and 1930’s, his most famous […]

supplicity – a product review

April 24, 2015 admin 2

Supplicity is one of those business ideas that you don’t realise is needed until you hear about it, then it seems blindingly obvious and you only wish that you had thought of it first. Supplicity are “ a new, helpful and easy way for you to manage your daily nutritional health regime.” Put simply they post out monthly boxes of vitamin tablets to you, but the best bit is they have condensed everything you need […]

The chamomile clinic- A tea review

April 24, 2015 admin 0

When it comes to a brew I am more of a green tea girl then a coffee addict, mainly because I’m not a big fan of milk. However my everyday choice of herbal teas usually comes in a tea bag. Despite indulging in fancy loose leaf teas whilst in quant coffee shops, I haven’t actually bought loose tea at home before, so was delighted to try some. I was sent four flavours to review by […]

Vita Coco – A product review

April 19, 2015 admin 0

Vita Coco Two men met two Brazilian women in a New York bar and a business was born. Ok so it sounds like the opening to a joke but this really is how vita coco came about. I received a lovely box with one of each flavour to try. I had previously tried the original one so was already a fan and was really excited to try the other flavours. I think that the way […]
