A couple of weekends ago my daughter and I were lucky enough to be invited by Online Golf to the Aparthotel in Manchester for a Get Kids Into Golf Event. The idea of the day was to introduce children to golf by participating in lots of fun games.
It Really Works Vitamins are back with a new addition to their growing range of vitamins and supplements.
As we age our body’s ability to produce collagen slows down, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and dull skin. Until fairly recently the only option to combat this was topical anti-aging creams but now liquid collagen drinks are forming an effective, first line defence against aging from the inside out!
Developed by leading UK scientists Skinade* is a natural peach and mangosteen flavoured anti-ageing collagen drink containing a unique formulation of 6 active ingredients that boosts your body’s natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Multi award winning, Skinade is said to improve the way your skin looks and feels in as little as 30 days. Unlike other liquid supplements with an absorption rate of 30 – 40% with Skinade there is an absorption rate of 90-95%! It is worth noting however that as the collagen peptides in Skinade are sourced from fresh-water fish this drink isn’t suitable for vegetarians.
Around 18 months ago I received a present of a voucher to spend at Champneys Spa, but with my nearest one in Leicestershire being almost three hours away it took me a while to sort out the logistics of how i’d get there and when. In the end we decided to drive our motorhome down and make a weekend of it, stopping at a nearby campsite with my husband kindly entertaining our 5 year old for the day while I indulged in some overdue R&R. Having never had a Spa Day before I was very excited, but also a little apprehensive being on my own.

This time of year can be so stressful. The busy Christmas period and all its difficulties may be out of the way but the New Year often brings with it new challenges and anxieties, from small things like getting back into the routine of work or the school run, to larger ones like December’s credit card bill hitting the mat or how you are planning to keep all those New Year Resolutions.

EasiYo was an idea dreamed up over 20 years by a New Zealand farmer who wanted to provide healthy yogurt to his growing family, one which was fresher and cheaper than store-bought yogurt. Thanks to its simplicity and ease of use, not to mention the tasty yogurt it produces, EasiYo has become an international success story and today I’m featuring their new and improved Yogurt Maker.
The redesigned EasiYo Yogurt Maker (RRP £17.99)* incorporates a host of technical, ergonomic and thermal improvements over the previous model. It makes 1kg of Yogurt and all parts are manufactured from US and UK FDA approved polypropylene, which are completely free from polycarbonate, BPA and any form of anti-environmental hormones. Available in a variety of colours I love this bright red one!
