Products I Love
Products that help me optimise my wellbeing, reduce my body’s toxic load and feel good inside and out.
Butter London: Nail Polish
I use Butter London because it doesn’t add Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluen, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, or TPHP to any of its nail product formulas. This is the colour I use – Dahling. Here in the UK, I buy mine from M&S, but various retailers sell the brand.
Neal’s Yard Remedies: Geranium & Orange Body Lotion
My acne prone skin loves Neal’s Yard Remedies Geranium and Orange range, probably because it has both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It contains natural, organic and ethically sourced ingredients, so I know I’m being kind to my skin and reducing harmful chemical exposure.
NEOM Organics London: Scent to De-Stress Real Luxury Reed Diffuser
For 100% natural home fragrances, NEOM are my go-to brand. The de-stress range contain lavender, jasmine & Brazilian rosewood plus 21 other essential oils. Steve and I have two of these diffusers, but always make sure we keep the home well ventilated with fresh air too.
Plantule Pillows: light grey Eye pillow
Made out of linen and cotton, filled with flaxseeds and a dash of lavender. The lavender is optional – you can add it to the eye pillow as the filling is held within a zipped inner pillow. I find it really helps me to relax and unwind. Everything I buy is usually quite a calming colour, so I love their light grey range.
Calcot Manor Exfoliating Massage Brush
Steve and I love going to Calcot Manor in the Cotswolds as a little retreat. They do this massage brush which I use on dry skin to help exfoliate, reduce build up of toxins and stimulate circulation. It’s available from Tesco.
Fortnum's Classic Glass Teapot (2 Cup)
This was a birthday present from Steve. I love sitting down and mindfully brewing a pot of peppermint tea, which I tend to add a teaspoon of honey to. I love how it’s see-through so I can watch how the colour changes and becomes deeper as the tea leaves slowly infuse.
INTELLIGENT Change: The Five Minute Journal
Another thoughtful gift from Steve, this journal helps me to focus on the good in my life, be more mindful, as well as start and end each day with gratitude. It’s based on positive psychology research and take just five-minutes of my day to fill in.
THE LIFORME YOGA MAT Grey
This is the best yoga mat I’ve ever owned. I tend to sweat a lot on my palms and feet when I’m doing a dynamic yoga flow, usually I’d be slipping on my mat especially in Downward Facing Dog, but not with this mat, it’s so grippy. I love the grey as it doesn’t show the dirt and I find the colour quite grounding.
Charlie Mackesy: Art Print
This is one of Charlie Mackesy’s prints that we’ve framed in the house. I use his art as a trigger to remind me to keep a healthy mindset. Steve and I bought this print at an exhibition he held in London, but you can sign up using the link below if you’re interested in purchasing one and follow his inspiring Instagram account.
Daylesford: GLASS STORAGE JAR 500CL NO1
I prefer to store food products in glass storage jars. Not only do they look great, but plastic containers tend to contain a chemical Bisphenol A (BPA), which can be transferred from packaging into food and drinks. It’s been found to exhibit oestrogen-mimicking, hormone-like properties.
DELICIOUSLY ELLA CACAO & ALMOND ENERGY BALL
If I’m on the go and after a sweet treat, I usually buy or make a Deliciously Ella’s energy ball. I love the Cocoa and Almond as I have a sweet tooth. It’s free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. The recipe is here or you can buy from the link below.
Happinez magazine contains so many inspiring interviews that provide wisdom and insight into how to live a happy life. It’s full of positive messages that help with self-growth and the way it’s designed is pure zen. I buy it from WHSmith. You can purchase it from the retailer below also.
