Why you should relax – do it!

I have recently been suffering with a very painful back, shoulders and neck due to the chair at work not giving me the support I need. However, I decided to visit my local beautician for an Indian Head Massage. I have had one of these before and I felt so much better afterwards, my head was clear, the knots in my back had gone and my mood lifted. With the impressive results last time I thought that it might help me this time and my word it really did.

What is an Indian Head Massage?

Well I can’t give you an actual definition because I don’t know the meaning. Jasmine, my beautician from Beauty at Pelo, Swadlincote only charges a bargain price of £25 for one hour and fifteen minutes of absolute heaven. Your shoulders, back and neck are lightly covered in an oil to soften the skin. There is a lot of thumb and arm work involved during the massage. Today I could feel the knots crunching and I had so many of them – no wonder I was in pain. You should have seen the smile on my face as they were being demolished! Plus, I had relaxation music on in the background so I got to completely switch off from the world, it was wonderful.

The session then moves onto your head and face. AHH I love my hair being played with, love it love it love it. This is another reason I choose to have an Indian Head Massage because your whole scalp is massaged and then she moves onto circular techniques on your face (if you suffer with migraines, give this a go).

I never want it to end, I honestly cannot say how better I feel, I have a clear mind, my back, neck and shoulders are no longer in pain and I’m in a great mood! If you have a beautician please consider this if the option is available. I just want to say a big thank you to Jasmine for being such a lovely lady, she’s really helped me today.


Working for Avon

Today I have decided to become an Avon Representative again. I enjoyed doing it before and I’m sure I’ll enjoy it this time around. I was umming and arring whether to become a rep again as it is quite time-consuming for the profit that you make. This time however I will make it work, I am determined to really push the boat our with my new venture.

It is quite funny really, I don’t really wear make-up but when I do for nights out I am always wearing Avon’s products. I LOVE their make-up spray, it is fantastic by the way. There are still many products I need to try so I may end up doing beauty reviews – CRAZY I KNOW!

If you would like to receive a brochure from me or shop directly through my online website, please go ahead. Whether you’re living in Scotland or in Derby, you can order through me and get your items delivered to you at a small courier cost.

Spotmania- home remedy

So this is a rather embarrassing post for me because since changing my pill, my forehead is having its own party and my chin and cheeks have been invited as well. I kinda don’t want to point them out and scare people off but I have a boyfriend so you’re the ones missing out. Ha.

I always get compliments for not wearing make-up because one I can’t do it, two I can’t be arsed to go to the trouble, three it’s bloody expensive and four I love having a natural face. However, things have changed over the last few months (On really bad days I have to wear foundation or concealer) although I won’t wear make-up because I’m worried it’ll make my spots worse.

So I’ve been using my best friend Google and I came across some home remedies for spots and acne. The grand canyon currently situated on my forehead is extremely itchy which made me think it could be an allergic reaction to hair products. This course of action is to be taken before I go and visit my doctor because I might need to change my pill for the third time, yay me. I also have very oily skin and a fringe so this could add to the problem.

Here is the first one I’m going to try:



Cheers Google for this image 😉

What a life saver, thank you to the person that discovered lemons.

What do I do?

  1. Cut the lemon into slices, to be honest one is enough for your face.
  2. Wash your face with lukewarm water to make sure your pores are open and are ready for the acid!
  3. Take the slice of lemon and wipe it all over your face. Make sure you get enough lemon juice on the badly effected areas. Please note this will really sting.
  4. Once you’ve used as much as you can, do not rinse your face for twenty minutes.
  5. Wash your face and remove all the left over pieces of lemon. You’re finished!

Repeat twice a day.

I will be doing progress blog posts to see if it works. I really hope so.

Day 1 – before lemon

Excuse the eyebrows, I’m waiting for them to be waxed.

So after showing you my awful condition at the moment I really hope it works for you. If you decide to give this a go, please keep me informed as I’d love to hear other opinions on the process. Plus the end result!

If anyone has beauty products they would like me to try for this problem and then review them, get in touch xx
