Why Pampering Is The Best Present You Can Give

Pampering – it’s one of the best presents you can give YOURSELF or your loved ones! It might sound a bit ridiculous for the owner of a Hair & Beauty Salon and Spa to say this: But I hadn’t understand HOW important it is until recently. Now Danny Smith at Radio Verulam is a big […]

Mum putting herself first

  How important is it for us Mums to maintain a self of our identity after having kids do you think? How much should we be doing purely for ourselves every day or every week? Lots, a Little, or somewhere in between? I had a ‘discussion’ with a mate about it (thank goodness she is […]

I’ve got that typical Bristolian healthy pink cheek look, which along with my curly hair and mighty 5ft 4 1/2 inches, does have the tendency to make me look like a hobbit.
