Neom Organics : My Lifesaver In This Frenzy World

It’s rare for me to provide a review but this time I decided to do it because I need to share my joy to have discovered Neom Organics. This brand is creating exceptional and purest products which literally blow my mind by their efficiency, beauty and purity. I cannot live without the Discovery Scent kit which is my life saver when I am ready to lose the plot. The smells are divine and the Home Mist (Scent to Make you Happy) is pure bliss in a bottle, uplifting my mood, made me smile instantly and enjoy more the small pleasures daily. It is THE product that any woman need to stay positive and happy.

Additionally the Discovery Scent kit is brilliant to identify your wellbeing need particularly when you feel tired, down, moody and out of sync. Sometimes we are so deep in this frenzy pace of life that we lost connection with our body and mind, we lost touch with the signs that our body and mind are sending to alert us that we are unbalanced. But with this kit, we have at last the opportunity to find the roots of our unbalance and therefore find the solution to resolve it. It is life changing, a precious help to protect and preserve our overall wellbeing.

It is for these reasons that I trust this brand to bring my wellbeing back to balance and harmony. Recently, I was looking to create my own spa experience with a nice bath, relaxing music and soothing light. It came as no surprise that Neom Organics pop in my mind as the brand to trust to create this blissful experience. I bought the candle Scent toDe-Stress, formulated specifically with 100% natural fragrances and 24 of the purest possible essential oils particularly chosen with the aim to eliminate stress and bring calm to the mind and body. And it really works. Each time, I feel myself stressed, or rushed, or going on autopilot, I just smell the candle, and just the smell of it slow me down, soothe me in a incredible manner to go back to my self, to my awareness and be grateful for what I have. I am in love with this smell because it is truly a fantastic product to stay yourself in this frenzy world. I sincerely recommend you to try, the smell is heavenly and such a therapeutic tool for peace and being grateful.

A Real and Gentle Make up Remover with ? Avene, of course !

Avene created a new make up remover. And because I have never been disappointed by their products, I bought it immediately. Why ?

1. The skincare line Avene is the purest, soothing skincare that I know for ages which calm, nourish and soothe my bambina de peau beautifully.

2. I was looking for a lighter version of the cleansing milk of Tolerance Extreme exceptional in itself but too creamy when you are in a rush to remove your make up, cleanse your skin before to put my daughter to bed.

3. I love the texture of this fluid, gentle like a milk and fresh like the rosée. Cleansing as well as soothing my skin is the formula to make my skin happy and zen.

4. And the cherry on the cake, the delicate and blossomed perfume of it makes this beauty ritual a real pampering time, only and just for you. I am using it daily and I strongly recommend it for sensitive skin, it’s a pure and real gem.

Quality, Beauty And Empowerment With Neom Organics

I discovered recently an organic brand creating amazing candles, perfumes and skincare products. This brand has been created by a working mum who managed to make her vision a reality. What really struck me was the message of the brand “small steps, big difference.”

Why ? because as a woman working in the City, these small moments are key to preserve from insanity, stress and frankly lose the plot. Such moments invigorate, re-energise me so much that the world is my oyster and I am ready once again to keep my optimism and have a great day.

I received recently their last product, their Scent Discovery Test. It is basically a test composed of small vials, each of them containing a blend of essential oils which will identify your underlying wellbeing. At first, I was curious, intrigued but a bit sceptical, although tempted by it.

Why ? because I am extremely sensitive to smells, perfume. For instance I like lavender but found the smell of it too empowering. I love the smell of the lemon oil but cannot cope to put it on my skin due to allergies. However, what really pushed me to give it a go is to identify my wellbeing need.

All the blends in each vial, without exception smell amazingly good. None of the other blends, perfumes or mists made me react but this one miraculously made me smile instantly and uplifted my mood like sunshine beams. And a few days later, I still remember vividly about this blend like a magic potion to trigger my joie de vivre and my happiness. It is a revelation because this product is 100% pure quality : organic ingredients, amazing smells and the philosophy of the brand is the cherry on the cake. A brand based on a holistic approach (body, mind and soul) to truly make a difference in our lives and being a must-have in our bag to get on with our day.

No nasties, no fake promises, just quality, beauty and empowerment for all of us.

Being Present, Being Aware, Being You

When I meditate, I am tuned with my self in an incredible manner. The world around me vanish gradually to let my mind takes this space and let freely my thoughts flow with no control, restriction.

My breathing is so calm, peaceful that I reach a state, a state where I  have the feeling to be in countryside walking in the grass or in front of the beach watching the sea acting in its own way everyday. You really do notice some tiny details which make you realise that life is precious, beautiful and love should be celebrated.

It’s not even 15 minutes to escape for my mind, to feel liberated and do whatever it want to do. And for me, being able to relax, to reach this peaceful flow where everything is quiet, where I can embrace the silence around me is invaluable.

We truly need these moments, small but important “me time” to regain our balance, increase our awareness and change our thinking process. With practice it becomes easier like a stroll in the park, sometimes it’s like being present in a emotional storm but ultimately the gift of meditation is to learn being present, being aware, being you.

Inner calm and confidence with Andy Puddicombe

I can’t help to reflect on the overwhelming need we have to reach a peaceful mind. With a pace of life more busier than ever, it start to be truly challenging to keep our head above the water.

With that in mind and the stress we have to overcome every day, it is not surprising that we are extremely close to be completely kaputt, emotionally and physically broken.

Painfully aware of my hectic state of mind, I started to seek a manner/a way to free up my mind, detox him of all these negative and revolving thoughts. I started to meditate last September. Yes, to meditate. I jumped on the wagon of this new tendance, willing to recover my peace of mind like one million people across the world who swear that meditation is the key for a calmer, happier life. Yes, meditation works, once you let your preconceptions guide your judgement.

Learning to free up your mind takes time, dedication and consistency. Most importantly the benefits are so rewarding that meditate will become a new habit for you. Meditation improves mood, lowers stress and makes you more focused… and all these benefits are backed up by science research.

The introductory programme of the app Headspace helps you to start your journey to a better, clearer mind. Andy Puddicombe will guide you to meditate every day with no rush and the pressure of any expectation, slowly but surely, your mind will start to react to these well deserved breaks. Andy makes meditation normal , accesible and especially modern. The updated application of Headspace allows you to personnalise your meditation, depending of your time (10,15 or 20 minutes) your needs (improve your focus, creativity  for instance) and even when commuting. Since then, I am able to meditate more consistently, either on the go (when I walking to got to work) or even in the trains on the morning (when I can have a seat, of course!)

Meditation gives me the power to overcome the hectic pace of my thoughts, not by controlling them but by accepting them, understand them to let them go…the feeling to free up my mind from these thoughts is mind-blowing. I am more emotionally grounded, mindful and as a consequence my calm attitude has a direct impact on my relationships (family, friends or colleagues).

I cannot thank enough Andy Puddicombe to have created this app helping me daily to restore my inner calm and confidence. You can feel that Andy is genuinely generous and calm. I strongly recommend you to give a try to meditation, the benefits are overwhelming and you would not regret it !
