Should we be celebrating Women’s Healthy Weight Day?

Thursday 17th January 2019 is Women’s Healthy Weight Day.  Yes, apparently this is a thing!  Why are we all so obsessed with how we look?  Should we really be blaming the media, when cases of anorexia and bulimia can be dated back to the 15th Century and perhaps beyond?


Statement Made Jewellery – don’t you just love getting surprises in the post?!

Ad | Like most girls, I love jewellery.  I prefer to wear delicate and dainty designs – I appreciate these are not words usually associated with me – rather than chunky pieces.  I was thrilled to be approached by Statement Made Jewellery, as I have been a fan of their collection for a while.

Stephanie Cole-Lewis, the Founder and CEO of the company popped the item in the post but did not tell me what it was, wanting to keep it as a surprise. My imagination did run wild – what would it be? Would it be my style?  And, more importantly, would I like it?

Get Kardashian lips without the needles! No pain, instant results, low cost

When Jordy the owner of Ultra Sculpt on in Cardiff approached me, I was thrilled to give the Lip Plumping procedure a try.  As I have gotten older, I have noticed fine lines appear around my lips.  If I want to wear a red or a darker colour I do need to wear a lip liner, whereas in my twenties this was not an issue.

Why is it so hard to stick to a diet or exercise regime?

Is it really that hard to stay on track?  Do we put too much pressure on ourselves?

At the beginning of the month, I explained my June Challenges.  One was that for one meal a day, usually breakfast, I would replace it with a Herbalife shake, and that I would run 25 miles or more in the month.  I was really enthusiastic about starting and felt really positive about the experience, so why over the last 5 days or so have I found it so hard?
