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.

No contest, just a gift, a present for you. Pampering is a luxurious time we should all give to ourselves as a well deserved break. Because I am an advocate of it, this is my gift to you : two beautiful skin products that I initially bought for myself but I didn’t use finally for lack of time.
These products are great to take care of your skin and to give you back this glow that we all desire as well as pushing you to slow down and live in the moment.
My first gift to you is the Santal Face Treatment Oil, the must -have treatment to have for dry skin prone to redness and discomfort. Created with 100% pure plant extracts : essential oils of santal and lavender to soothe, cardamom oil to stimulate and increase skin resistance and hazelnut oil to to deliver moisture and give you back a soft skin. This treatment is a saviour especially at this time when the weather is not really hot !
The second one is the famous purified Glow Mask Himalayan Charcoal of The Body Shop. 100% vegetarian and formulated without nasties, this mask will unclog, refines pores and reveals the glow of your skin. I like the idea that they used finest ingredients to reveal the beauty of our skin such as bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves from Japan and Community Trade Tea tree oil from Kenya.
So, the first person who will add a comment to this article to get these treatments will receive it as a Christmas gift from me, as simple as it is ! Merry Christmas Beauties !

Never, ever I appreciated to drink a nice beer and trust me I tried. However, it’s only this summer that I discovered through my friends the ginger beer from Belvoir and my God I fell in love with this beverage.
I always like the smell of ginger but never thought to enjoy it as a drink. During this summer, I drank tons of this ginger beer that I found so tasty, refreshing and invigo rating. It was like a drug, everyday, I needed with the heat, to drink it fresh and ensure that I have a lot in stock for the next days. It’s like being lost in the desert, disoriented, close to lose your mind and ready to die when, suddenly, your hands met a metal bottle, the wetness of it and you managed to open this bottle despite your exhaustion and thirstiness. You open the mouth to drink it and you are in heaven, blissfully rested and lying on a luxurious sofa not far from the beach where this ginger beer, this luxurious beverage awaits for you. Pure, pure, pure bliss.
Oh you should try it, you would not regret it. No alcohol, no nasties…just a tasty and fresh beverage that you can savor slowly and preciously. I even, used to wait for my daughter to sleep before to drink it…because this ginger beer pushed me to enjoy the present, take time to do things and enjoy life everyday. You can find it at Waitrose or Pizza Express. Just give a try if you already like ginger beer, you won’t be disappointed.

Mangajo, what’s this name bring to your mind ? Novelty, travel, exotism, india ? If these words pop in your mind you’ re not too far from the truth. The same thoughts pop in my mind and also a real curiosity for this new product.
I discovered this drink with my man at Planet Organic. One day, he decided to give it a try because he wanted to drink green tea differently. Mangajo made a huge difference to the manner I drink tea now. We have always the picture of the classic green tea we used to take in coffee, bars or restaurants most of the time sour, strong and not really pleasant. It is only when I discovered Choi Tea Time that I started to fully appreciate drinking green tea. A tea which is light, delicate and so full of flavours, taking the time to drink green tea is like a real ceremony, a real time to enjoy this delicate and so healthy tea. It is where Mangajo added a punch of colours and taste to this majestic tea. With a bunch from lemon, pomegranate or acai bverry , the founder of Mangajo created a refreshing blend of green tea and fruits. No nasties, no sugar added, just the natural blend of healthy fruits and green tea. Sounds like a dream, isn’t it ? Not really. I assure you. This is real and good for us. This beverage is refreshing, a real bunch of goodness and ohhhhh we are drinking green tea, the tea by excellence famous to boost weight loss, source of powerful antioxidants to protect us and help to preserve our health to its optimum.
Mangajo is a burst of hydration with the bonus to taste even better ! With the summer, there is no better way to hydrate yourself with a refreshing beverage not only tasty but fabulously healthy ! I really recommend you to give it a try, you would not be disappointed and you have the choice between different blends which are all of them different and so fresh ! Try it, you have nothing to lose !
