Recipes to GLOW

Here are two more recipes from my latest book - GLOW: Your Complete Four Week Plan for Healthy Radiant Skin. SO easy to make any time of year, but most especially during Springtime, as they are packed with skin-essential nutrients to help revitalise and freshen up our skin for the summer months ahead. Maybe its time to treat yourself, or someone you care about, to the book!

Book Review: The Wild Remedy

The Wild Remedy: How Nature Mends Us - A Diary is one of the best books I have read in some time, so honest and real and beautifully put together. Don’t just buy one copy as everyone needs to read this. This should be an essential part of the schools curriculum.

Wellness Trends

Figures just released by the Global Wellness Institute (GWI) in the US show that the wellness industry takes in US$4.2 trillion in annual global spend (up from US$3.7 trillion in one year!) and just maybe our addictive endorphins of manic consumption are being usurped by the feel-good serotonin that comes with a more sustainable and meaningful lifestyle.

Book Review: Sober, Curious

I have been stalling on posting this review for the past few weeks - not because I didn’t like the book (I loved it!) - but because I wanted to accompany the review with a personal commitment and, as with everything in life it seems, the time wasn’t right.

The Perfumers Muse

Growing up on the rugged west coast of Ireland during the 1970s and early 1980s, the haunting lyrics of French singer Michel Sardou’s Les Lacs du Connemara resonated deeply: ‘Burnt earth in the wind, stone moors around the lakes, it's for the living.’ These words that captured this raw, wild landscape so evocatively will stay with me forever.

Review: African Botanics Skincare

Below are just a few of my favourites, all made for giving this Christmas - all very beautiful, authentic and the clever folk behind them continue to be as passionate about what they are doing as they are about our precious environment - for me that’s reason enough to buy and return, time and time again. I hope you find something here that will work for a loved one, friend or even yourself…after all you deserve a little gift too!

My Skin Rules

I’m so grateful that my work helps me take more care of my body, my mind and my skin and, even if I say so myself, I’m feeling and looking better than in years. This I credit to a combination of what I am putting into my body, how and when I move my body and what I’m using on my skin.

Stressed Post-Summer Skin

Autumn is a great time for skin and as nature moves slowly inwards, why shouldn’t we do the same by spending a little time fast-forwarding our skin and indeed our bodies to a healthier, more radiant place.

La Rentrée

After taking most of August off, the French are back in the real world once again and La Rentrée marks this transition. While school is back here too, we don’t mark the occasion quite so word perfectly, but it's a sign that autumn is coming and for many the time for reflection and intention.


Book Review: Pure Skin

I first met San Francisco-based Victoria Tsai, founder of boutique skincare brand Tatcha some eight years back when the range was first launched in Asia and I have been a fan of this glorious quintessential Japanese skincare ever since.
