Home hair care with Josh Wood Colour

Home hair care is the way forward for me especially since having kids. Finding the time to fit in a trip to the hairdressers is something I begrudge doing! I love the finished look that I could never achieve, but I really can't bare having…

Staying well through winter

As soon as the clocks go back and the dark nights fall in fast you know that winter is here. We're all huddled indoors with the heating cranked up getting our 'hygge' on! Then come all the colds and sniffles!! As soon as the kids head back…

Love your skin when living with eczema

My youngest son is a sensitive soul inside and out.  He has always had dry skin since he was a baby with your classic eczema patches in the creases of the arms and behind the knees. It wasn't until he was in reception that his condition flared…

Juicing my way to health!

I'm a huge fan of juicing and it's a great thing that it is now such a trend but I do hope that everyone really understands the true benefits that we can gain from our daily juices. I started juicing almost three years ago after extensive research…

Eat a Rainbow

On our way to our friends the other week we were greeted with a beautiful sight, it was the most amazing rainbow! I haven't seen one so bright and clear in years and it really amazed me. I  could get lost staring at such natural occurances,…

Life after detox

I survived the 3 day detox!! Great news......was it worth it? It depends on how you look at it I suppose. I would say that I generally eat well - I try to eat organic (which people have real mixed opinions on but I believe it's right!), I follow…

3 Day Detox - Day 3

I was up at 5am this morning for work and I really need my coffee on these days. Today was really going to be a challenge if day 2 was anything to go by. I got myself ready, drank my hot water and lemon and prepared my breakfast smoothie. I…

3 Day Detox - Day 2

I woke up this morning feeling ok but once I was downstairs and getting on with the morning routine with no coffee, I have to say the headache I had didn't feel great. I drunk my hot water with lemon then got on with preparing my breakfast feeling…

3 Day Detox - Day 1

I'm all ready for my 3 day detox with all my ingredients bought in preparation the day before. A purchase of a blender was also included in my preparation!! I am very excited by this as I've been talking about buying one for ages. I'd talked…

Time to reset

So it's been a great weekend and guess what??? We've over indulged!! Is there anyone else out there who is feeling bloated, sluggish and dehydrated? Our good friend has been celebrating her birthday and we were invited over for a 'come dine…

Fresh Friday's

I've been storing my top five favourites things to share with you today! Black or dark coloured grapes! The perfect little gems to snack on when you fancy something sweet. Not only are they tasty and delicious but they are packed with goodness…

Meat free Monday

How many of you are having a meat free day?? How about having a meat free Monday every week!? Did you know that high consumption of processed and red meats are linked to the development of bowel cancer. To add to this you are also increasing…

Weekend pickings

So what are we picking/ snacking on this weekend people?? This is often what I struggle with at the weekend. The weekly routine is done and it's time to slow down..... Phew! That's when I tend to get a bit lazy. We've just got back from a PTA…

Let's get the ball rolling!

The training commenced today with some reluctance at first. What with getting breakfast sorted and kids dressed, juicing, preparing packed lunch and getting to school on time, once we've returned home and look around at the destruction of the…

Training begins!

Training begins today........we'll not quite although the intension was there! I did actually get up and get into my training gear. Does that count?? My 4 year old has been off school with chickenpox and both boys love their very early mornings,…

My first day!

Today I decided to set myself two challenges. The first challenge was to actually start writing my blog! So here I am. The second challenge was to enrol myself to the 'Race for Life', running 10k. This is something I have never done before in…
