You can buy rose water online or make your own at home if your lucky to know someone who has a rose bush, there areย  also many hair products out there that contain rose water along with other ingredients so its worth researching on google for new products to try. When people think of rose water you don’t necessarily think of haircare, you just think about it as a toner or makeup remover or a spray for face and body.

IRON daily oral spray from betteryou.com Review*

So iron contributes to the normal function of the immune system, supports normal cognitive function and helps with the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Better youย  oral iron spray is an alternative to tablets and capsules, some people like myself have an iron deficiency and are unable to absorb iron from food. I had iron tablets from the GP and they make my stomach feel so bad and also made me so sick I had to stay in bed for a week.ย  The spray doesn’t give me any side effects at all and the tube is small enough to travel around with. I would give this product a 10 out of 10!

waitrose_131781009702003.jpg

The supermarket originally launched itsย Unpackedย test in its Oxford Botley Road shop in June, and, following an overwhelmingly positive response with more than 90 per cent of those surveyed saying they would continue to shop Unpacked, announced it would be extending the test there and in three more shops by the end of this year including Cheltenham.

Waitrose is seeking to get as much feedback as possible on its Unpacked test. Customers can share their thoughts via a feedback survey onย Waitrose.com/Unpacked, and by using #WaitroseUnpacked Twitter and Instagram.

Coffee refills – Customers can grind one of four coffees in store to take home in a reusable container to reduce glass and plastic packaging.

Mike Snowdon, Branch Manager at Waitrose & Partners Cheltenham, said:

โ€œWeโ€™re thrilled to be only the second of our shops to have Waitrose Unpacked and will be looking for as much feedback as possible from our customers. Weโ€™re still testing the different concepts so Cheltenham shoppers will have a huge say on how we can develop ideas which have the potential to be rolled out more widely.โ€

Discover OLIO the food sharing app that is making the world a better place ๐ŸŒŽโœ…๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŒ

Recently I have been looking for ways to reduce my waste and also give away unwanted items, I’m already a member of a few frecycle clubs and online free cycle websites. I’d never thought about one dedicated to food waste. When I came across OLIO on Google play store I just knew this was one of the best apps to be created in the last few years. It’s so easy to use and you never have to throw away unused goods again !

Tr-EYpzk

OLIO is a free app (mobile & web) that connects neighbours with each other and volunteers with local businesses, so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. If you love food, hate waste, care about the environment or want to connect with your community, OLIO is for you.

Ultimately, the mission is to unlock the value of food that is wasted in the home and local community. The way the app works is simple. Users snap a photo of their spare and add it to the app. Neighbours who live nearby receive customised alerts and can request anything that takes their fancy. All items are offered for free.

Food shared could be food nearing its sell-by date from local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from the local baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you goaway, move home or go on a diet. You can also share non-food items such as furniture, clothes, toys, household and beauty products.

Food waste is a major issue, and not just for the supermarkets. Globally, a third of all food produced is wasted, and in the UK, households account for half of all waste-binning over ยฃ15bn of edible food, costing families ยฃ800 per year (ref). Food waste is also costly for local stores and councils and ranks as one of the worldโ€™s largest emitters of greenhouse gases.

OLIO has been used in over 50 countries and over 1.8million items have been successfully shared between neighbours. Thatโ€™s the equivalent of preventing 1,564 CO2emissions from entering the atmosphere and eliminating 4,692,637car miles from the road.

OLIO also has a flourishing volunteer network-over 36,000 people have reached out to the organisation requesting to become volunteers, to promote food sharing locally and rescue and redistribute food in their communities via OLIO!

Better You Magnesium flakes – Review ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›€

If your into detox baths then you have to try magnesium flakes! You simply add them to your bath as you would with Dead Sea salts, Clay or Epsom. Then just relax and enjoy.

20190808_185314.jpg

I’m a massive fan of detox baths and usually combine it with my beauty routine, I will put on a face mask and hair conditioning mask while I’m in my bath. Lately I was in a herbalists shop to get some more epsom & vitamins and a nice assistant recommended magnesium flakes. Never have I ever used them before, she explained it was a muscle relaxant and it can be very powerful.

When I had my bath with the magnesium flakes my muscles were so relaxed, a bit to relaxed! It was a nice feeling and now I love having a magnesium bath now and then. I also felt so relaxed and sleepy when I come out the bath which is great! Magnesium has other benefits too like anti aging and helping with skin conditions.

Discovering the burbur detox ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ’–โœ…

A while ago I heard about the burbur detox while I was in a herbalists shop, I couldn’t believe that one plant could do so much good for the human body. I listened to the lady speaking about the burbur product and knew I needed to look itย  all up online once I got home. Sure enough it turned out that it was a pretty popularย  go to detox product for people with Lyme disease, kidney issues and other disorders. Apparently it also removed heavy metals from the body!

Burbur Detoxย is made from an extract produced from the leaves ofย Desmodium molliculum, a genus of the flowering plant family Fabaceae, a perennial that has been found and harvested in areas of Peru as high as 3,500 meters above sea level.ย Burburย leaf extract has been traditionally used for its body cleansing properties including the detoxification of the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and the ground matrix.

manayupa

The herb has many uses in native medicine. It can be used for the treatment of gastritis, kidney stones, malaria, allergies, asthma, inflammation, parasites, tumors, viruses and as a blood purifier and sedative.

https://healthfully.com/311699-what-is-the-herb-burbur-used-for-in-detox.html

Also I found out that it can kill tumour cells and a whole host of other amazing stuff ! So I’m completely sold it doesn’t hurt to try right ? A small bottle was around ยฃ15 pound to buy but it seemed worth it. I haven’t started my burbur detox yet but I hope to blog about the results in a future post, if anyone else has done this detox please let me know what your results were ?

All you do is put 10 to 20 drops in water and drink it and repeat it a few times a day and continue for a few months, dose is depending on how much toxicity you have. A lot of reviews online are really positive and I can’t wait to get started ๐Ÿ˜‰

Check out my other post on why we get grey hair hereย just incase it’s not genetic or stress induced, you may have an undiagnosed disorder!

Follow this advice below if you want to reverse our already greying hair or prevent grey hair from occurring.

Stopย smokingย !!

Eat iron rich foods, Spinach, kidney beans, potatoes, lentils, raisins.

Eat copoer rich foods ! Copper is needed for certain essential enzymes, including tyrosinase, which is crucial for the production of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin and hair its color. The 2012 study in “Biological Trace Element Research” also found a significant link between low copper levels and prematurely gray hair.

Three of the best supplements for grey reversing :

  • B-12
  • Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) (from folic acid)
  • Copper

Christmas party ideas!๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’‹๐ŸŽ…

thought-catalog-480579-unsplash.jpg

In the run up to Christmas we may be thinking about having a get togethers with friends and family, maybe a fun night in or going out. Some of us might even throw a massive Christmas party ๐Ÿ˜€ย I have made a list of some cool ideas to get your imagination flowing. Whatever you decide to do I hope you have fun ! Merry Christmas guys ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ„

A Christmas’s pampering party at home ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿ’–

Invite your friends over for a night of complete pampering such as face masks, nail painting etc. A bit of champagne and watch a movie in your Xmas pj’s. You can even hire out some beauty therapists or mobile hairdressers to come along for an hour to do hair and fake tans!ย  Get your friend to bring over food and chocolates to share or all chip in for a big takeaway then laugh the night away.

Gingerbread house competitionย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ

Get a whole load of Gingerbread house making kits from eBay or the high street and throw a Gingerbread house making party ! This one is perfect for kids to get involved too, so invite your friends round and tell them to bring the kids. I have done this as a child and it was amazing, I loved it and was kept busy for hours ๐Ÿ˜‚ So if you want some peace from the kids leave them to it! Also with any competition there has to be a prize !

Night out at a karaoke bar ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒน๐ŸŽ„

Sing the night away with all your favourite Christmas songs and have a laugh. Get dressed up in matching outfits and get out the camera to make some christmas memories ๐Ÿ“ท

Night out at the casino ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ’ต๐ŸŽ‰

Maybe not the most responsible night out at Christmas time as we need our money for presents but what can beat a night filled with laughs and gambling ? Get the girls together and head to your nearest casino and go crazy!ย  Christmas is only once a year after all ๐Ÿ˜‚

Christmas movie marathon ๐ŸŽฌ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ˜‚

Get out the beanbags and the food and watch all the old Christmas films together. Nice and cosy !

Give powerfull INVISIBLE gifts this Holiday Season ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ’‹โค

Why not do something a little different this year ? Such as giving gifts that don’t cost anything like time, patience and compliments ?ย 

kira-auf-der-heide-475623-unsplash

I had this idea for this post a I was observingย  everyone getting ready for Christmas running about crazy trying to get things sorted, it can very stressful and we can forget about ourselfs and others needs!

In the run up to Christmas day we can hand out more compliments that will brighten someone’s day such as complimenting a stranger on a lovely outfit, telling a work colleague they are doing a great job and you noticed how hard they worked. Also thanking friends and family who make us a meal by saying it was very nice and they are a great cook! So many times we actually think these things but don’t have the guts to say it out loud.

Another thing we can do is give our time to friends or family, such as going round and visiting and having a good conversation. Maybe even a phone call to an old friend or taking the time to deliver a newspaper or milk to an elderly neighbour. Taking a little bit of time just to talk to someone can go a long way. Truth is more people are lonely than ever I’m today’s technology world.

Having more patience with your self and others. This one is a gift to yourself as it will reduce stress, sometimes we worry and lose our patience with our self’s and others toon easily.ย  Tale a breath and say to yourself “is it worth it ?” Also don’t beat yourself, for up this Christmas if you get things wrong, Christmas isn’t going to be perfect for everyone.

Some times the best gifts are the cheapest, inexpensive free ones ! But in the end you realise YOU are the best gift! You are not really invisible and others aren’t either so stop acting like they are and give the gift of love, patience, time and compliments โค๐ŸŽ
