Sugar and spice and all things nice – Hot Cross Buns

imagevia Sugar and spice and all things nice – Hot Cross Buns

Hello and Happy Easter…

 

I hope you’re all keeping as well as possible… I’ve been spending my time taking things slow, baking and pottering in the garden and trying to keep as positive as possible! I find during these challenging times or any tough period, filling my life with all the things which bring joy and make me happy leaves less time for worry!

So yesterday I got my apron on and made these Hot Cross Buns, which always is an Easter ritual, I didn’t intend changing. Yes they’re a bit of work but nothing compares to homemade and the achievement of making your own! So long as you have strong flour and dried yeast!! As I’d planned to make these yummy buns I made sure to save enough yeast, which I know is in such short supply!
This is a recipe from my other blog – My Yellow Jumper, go have a look and happy baking. If you decide to have a go at baking them over the Easter period, I’d love to know how you got on with this recipe.

Stay safe, be kind to yourself and one another and get creative with whatever you love!

Formulated with soothing natural ingredients such as organic sunflower seeds, wild pansy, chamomile, and calendula, this intensively rich cream, instantly gets to work, nourishing dry chapped hands that feel tight and close to cracking.

That’s particularly great news for hands that are constantly submerged in disinfectant or hand sanitiser and require an intensive hand treatment to soften them up.

If your hands are suffering, apply throughout the day and a thick layer of Skin Food before bed can provide some relief and comfort. Have a look on my Web Shop and help support a small business.

Spring clean your wellbeing…

IMG_4923

Spring… a time to blossom and make changes towards our wellbeing.

It’s officially Spring – time really does fly by much too quickly! Which means it’s good to cherish every moment and take time to slow down and enjoy relaxation and listening to what your body needs, rather than running on empty!

With birds singing and flowers blooming… I love Spring.  It’s the perfect time to have a look at what areas feel out of balance and work out how we can make some positive changes to bring more harmony and contentment into our daily lives. It’s not about adopting a strict regimen but rather about being kind to ourselves and taking small steps to improve our overall wellbeing.

IMG_4929

Therefore Spring is a perfect time to make these changes as we move from hibernation… it’s a time for creation and to cleanse the body and mind for the coming months. It’s an opportunity for a new start, clearing out the past and making way for new – like a Spring clean for your wellbeing!

So what are my things I find helpful for me?

I know what works best for me and I try to integrate these into my routine for optimum health and wellbeing – but it’s not a strict regimen!

  • Going to bed at a decent time so I get eight hours sleep to rest, recharge and replenish my body and mind.
  • Having a bath when I need relaxation before bedtime with essential oils such as; lavender chamomile or marjoram is my perfect way to relax and unwind.
  • Doing 10-20 mins yoga in the morning – ideally ever day!
  • Getting outdoors for a daily walk and pottering in my garden.
  • Making time for meditation and taking a slow approach to life – no need to be constantly rushing.
  • Having regular treatments; such as massage and reflexology.
  • Enjoying time with friends.
  • I love anything creative and making time to cook or bake is so rewarding.

IMG_4748

Sometimes our wellbeing can be the last thing many of us give attention to and really it’s the most important, as a balanced body and mind means we are well equipped to flourish in all areas. Thus, having a treatment is not an indulgence just when we are feeling rock bottom but rather a way of regularly maintaining balance and harmony within.

So if you would like to start enjoying regular relaxation but unsure of which treatments would best suit your needs then get in touch at to have a chat about your current concerns/expectations and we can arrange some appointments. You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram. I look forward to chatting.

Springtime ritual… a nourishing treatment for your face

bloom-blossom-close-up-68169

Spring has finally peeked it’s head through, with blossom blooming …

However, it is still feeling quite like winter and there’s no doubt it’s been a much colder one!  As we begin to come out of hibernation our skin is in need of a Springtime ritual… a treatment for your face!

The harsh winter  elements, along with central heating play havoc with our skin –  leaving  it feeling dry, dehydrated and lacking lustre. Therefore our skin is in much need of some TLC and I have the perfect solution…  to renew, restore and rejuvenate the skin.

CfCiD2rWEAAB3VI

How about a nourishing and replenishing Weleda facial, using only 100% certified natural products,  accompanied  by a comforting hand and arm massage and a deeply relaxing scalp massage to finish off!  This treatment will be customised to suit your individual skincare needs and concerns.

Receive a £5 Gift Voucher when you book a Facial Treatment*

Spring is a time for growth, renewal and change; a time to replenish and revive the body and mind, making way for the new and leaving behind the old.  It’s also an opportunity to take on new challenges, changing routines and taking some quiet and reflective time to nurture ourselves.

Why not make self care your new ritual –  working on your inner wellbeing which we all know results in outer radiance.

So if your aim is a glowing complexion and are in much need of a pick-me-up from the drying winter conditions, then give me a buzz to book your scheduled time to be kind to  yourself!
