Hello! It’s a pleasure to be sharing with you my knowledge and experiences on hair, beauty and well-being. I’ll be spotlighting some of the latest treatments and experiences to achieve that optimum glow from the inside out.
I’m 49; I’ve been in the beauty industry for over 30 years. I was born in Wales, opened my first salon at 19, second at 23, and became a Health and Beauty lecturer at 40.
I moved to Mallorca 7years ago looking for a new lifestyle balance and to work freelance in the hair and makeup area of media & events.
I’m passionate about the balance of mind, body and soul, taking a spiritual approach to achieving that harmonious natural radiance.
Eye Of The Beholder..?
Beauty, Noun; A combination of qualities such as shape, colour, form that pleases the senses especially the sight. What is beauty?…Vibrant flowers, dazzling turquoise seas, and tangerine sunsets. These wonders do not try to be beautiful- they just are. Lets take this into account before we judge and compare ourselves to others rather than admire our individuality, be kind to others and ourselves, be comfortable in our own skin. That’s essence of real beauty.
Wellness, harmonizing of the mind body and soul
Physical health -Exercise. Strong muscle memory, healthy heart, great circulation
Balanced diet -Variety of foods to fuel and nourish our bodies
Positive mental &emotional health- Balanced emotional state, feeling comfortable and confident in ourselves to be able to function positively and productivity.
This is the key combination required for total well-being.
The Elixir of Life!
Did you know that by the time you feel thirsty you are already de-hydrated?
Water is probably the closest thing to the fountain of youth…
As adults we are 60% water and our blood is 90%water.
De-hydration causes fine lines and wrinkles, can lead to skin disorders and premature aging. Think of it as our internal moisturizer.
Drinking 2.5 to 3.5 litres a day is beneficial in weight loss. It suppresses appetite, aids digestion and carries nutrients around the body. It also detoxes our liver helping rid those nasty hangovers!
Not a fan of water? Try adding a few citrus &cucumber slices and ice and pop it in your favourite wine glass. Set an alarm to remind you to stay healthily hydrated
