Pregnancy-friendly products I swear by
Autumn skincare: how to keep the glow
Being pregnant is special. You’re growing a tiny little human miracle within you, feeling them grow every week and feeling their little movements within you.
But then they take away camembert, then they take away wine, coffee….
But worse still? Half of your beauty regimen.
Kind regards, a pregnant CEO
The days are getting shorter, temperatures are dropping and the air is becoming drier. Autumn has officially arrived – about to wreak havoc from head to toe.
I had a non-surgical nose job
The moment I realised I was pregnant, my first thought was 'yay' and my second thought was 'oh, have I just killed my business?'
Being an entrepreneur means working through challenges. But running a business while pregnant comes with a completely unique set of challenges.
Blinded by beauty: The risks of Botox and fillers
The thought that you can get your ideal nose shape in under 15 minutes sounds impossible, but Dr Shirin Lakhani offers exactly that at her custom-made, immensely popular aesthetics clinic which is tucked away in Greenhithe, Kent.
ZO Skincare: The good, the bad and the peeling
We’re plumping and paralysing our faces for perfection in rapidly increasing numbers as appearance medicine goes mainstream – but the industry’s risky side is emerging, too.
Liora Beauty Chocolate: for mind and body pleasure
I visit Dr Shirin Lakhani at Elite Aesthetics and, as I always am when I see her, I'm completely taken aback by how glowing her skin is. Naturally I ask her with wide eyes what she’s using to look so radiant.
The Luxe Link: A personal shopping service and, quite frankly a life saver.
The brand fuses chocolate with beauty through elegant packaging and unique flavourful combinations. For mind and body pleasure, Liora crafts exotic, rich tastes, all of which are delicious and healthy indulgences.
Personalised vitamins? Could this be the way forward?
If you’ve been told that an ‘it’ item is sold out or isn’t available, you may be down but you’re certainly not out. There’s a glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel and it goes by the name of The Luxe Link; a cross border, luxury shopping service based in New York City.
How to keep a work-life balance
As a self-confessed vitamin-obsessive, I can easily spend hundreds of pounds a month on different tablets and vitamins in a bid to keep any colds at bay, my skin soft and my body healthy and energetic. But I am the first to admit that my vitamin regime probably isn’t well refined, taking all of my health inspiration and tips from Google with the hope that they are doing some good to my body.
Things no one tells you when you set up a business
Setting a good work/life balance can do wonders for your mental and physical health. It can also improve your relationships, help if you're feeling that void of "emptiness", and enable you to do the things you actually want to in life – and – it can actually improve your efficiency when you’re at work.
Three reasons to believe in yourself
Running a business can be an incredibly rewarding endeavour. The journey from idea to fruition comes with its own hurdles and you might think that getting your doors, literal or proverbial open, means you’re all set. But there are some things you only find out once you’re on the go…
A vegan skincare range...that works!
In today’s society, it’s getting harder and harder to believe in yourself and blow that proverbial trumpet. We’re constantly being told to love ourselves but when we do we’re frowned upon and told to get over ourselves instead.
Does makeup matter in business?
’ve always been a great believer in the link between natural, high quality ingredients and health and wellbeing – whether that’s within food or skincare products. So, when I was approached by Arbonne UK to try some of the safest, most natural products around, I was intrigued to say the least.
I tried Natural Cycles
Ladies! Feeling oppressed? Undervalued? Wondering how to get one over on the patriarchal business world and fulfil all your ambitions? Well, pull your finger out, learn how to contour your makeup, dress to show off every curve of your figure and heaven forbid, don’t forget to style your hair and smile.
How to practice self-care when you have no idea where to start
After six years of trusting the little rod-like implant in my arm, I decided that I was done with the chemical hormones being pumped into me every day and that it was time for a new cycle; a Natural Cycle.
Paws for thought. I took my dog to work in London for a day.
Sometimes, looking after your most simple, human needs—the eye-roll inducing, obvious ones—is harder than it seems. And with self-care so often presented on social media as an act of pampering, it’s no wonder so many of us can get the true meaning of self-care twisted.
Way back into pre-history dogs have been man’s best friend. They’ve lived and worked alongside us and kept us save at night when danger reared its head. However, in modern day, I feel that this relationship sadly gets pushed to the side-lines and the poor pooch is often left to sit in an empty house while we go about our daily business.
