The Re-Energiser Mini One Day Detox

My lovely friend Nikki is a little fountain of knowledge when it comes to leading a gorgeous healthy life.  A while ago she emailed me about a Re-Energising Mini One Day Detox she was planning telling me that she decided to do the detox because she had been feeling really sluggish and tired, she had [...]

Day 12 – 100 Healthy Days – Up-ing My Game

12 Days in, how's it been going? The first few days my actual goal that is to 'move more' was met but my hope for that to include daily exercising was near impossible.  Mainly due to a horrible cough and cold and clashing schedules with my hubby (my friend is never going to arrange to go running [...]

I am having a tough day.  I have hay-fever so bad it is making my head foggy and I am struggling to write this post as just looking down is making my nose run.  My kids are doing everything they know they shouldn't and completely ignoring me when I try to retain some semblance of [...]
