This week I thought I would share with you some of the things I’m loving at the moment.
Firstly, I am totally in love with my Vitamix from Raw Blend. It makes my morning smoothie so much smoother and that much more enjoyable. I have also made soup in it from an assortment of vegetables that needed to be used and was delicious. You can do so much with these machines and I am yet to try the endless possibilities.
My next loves are the sun and sleep. I am finally getting my body into some sort of routine and loving waking up a bit earlier, after a big sleep, and enjoying the beautiful spring sunshine. Sleep and exposure to the sun go hand-in-hand and Cyndi O’Meara talks about the importance of getting enough darkness at night, as well as a healthy exposure to the sunlight, to boost Vitamin D levels.
This week I was introduced to the Smiling Mind meditation app. I have always wanted to try meditation but never really knew where to start and didn’t know if it was all a bit too ‘hippyish’ for me! This is such an easy way for busy (or not so busy!) people to take 5-15 minutes to calm the mind and body. I am looking forward to using this on a regular basis.
Last, but certainly not least is a product by Weleda. If you haven’t heard of Weleda they are a certified natural skincare company so you can rest assured that they use absolutely no synthetic ingredients. I have been using their Almond Soothing Facial Oil for a few months now and I won’t be going back! This multi-use beauty is great for removing eye make-up, and yes it actually works! Simply add a few drops to a damp cotton pad and use as you would any other eye make-up remover. You can also use it for extra moisture on your face as it hydrates, soothes and balances skin.
