Hello June and the World Cup! I am not saying that I am the biggest football fan around, however I do like the atmosphere. We’ve done a sweepstake in the office which is proving rather fun and a little competitive… come on Switzerland!
I read a lovely article recently about the return of the traditional Sunday lunch and the weekend shop. Can you imagine sitting and eating with family and friends, minus technology, and preparing your meals and snacks for the week? This is my new mission for future Sundays. Since moving back to London, the day has been morning yoga, brunch with friends and discovering local farmers’ markets.
What I’m reading – I have to confess my head is still immersed in blogs, online articles and magazines. I have just ordered A Sting in the Tail by Dave Goulson which will be my in-flight reading.
Where I’m going – This month is all about Devon and New York! My brother is studying for his master’s degree in hydrography (he is going through a lot of Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion to help with late night studying) and I decided to book a long weekend down south to visit, part exploring and part celebrating a friend’s birthday. We went to a jazz night overlooking the sea and did some little road trips out to Woolacombe beach and Reservoir, where we decided to walk around the reservoir, not realising that is was over four miles long and included a walk over a fallen tree – all in flip flops!
My New York update will follow soon… I feel it deserves a special entry of its own!
This month’s lifestyle tip – Everybody, meet my spiralizer! My friend in New York was raving about this last year and I have finally purchased one… hello clean, raw food. This is my latest hobby and all part of the new lifestyle I am embarking on. I will bore you with some food pictures next month – I need a little practice as I am not the world’s best cook…
This month’s skincare tips – My skin has really loved having some fresh sea air this month. I popped in to see the team at our Duke of York Square store the other day, and to pick up my in-flight essentials for New York – Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer, Eyebright and Superbalm, the ultimate long-haul flight partner. Simply massage onto clean skin, sit back and relax while it protects skin against moisture loss.
This month’s make up tip – I have moved over to our Strengthening Nail Colour in Quicksand for my nails and now have Knockout (the most perfect red varnish) on my toes. Calling all flip flop wearers… now is the time to invest in Foot Repair Moisturiser and a good foot file to keep dry, cracked heels at bay. I massage this in every evening just before I go to bed to keep my feet flip flip and sandal-ready!
See you soon,
