Bradley_151126_8020Through my work i’ve used many different types and makes of Lashes.  From high glam, advertizing, portraits and drag artists. Seems they never go out of fashion. Just think back in relation to Hollywood films with leading ladies like Clara Bow in the 20’s and Gene Harlow in the 30’s ( one of the first blonds in movies) they wore false lashes to accentuate their eyes on film to lure and engage the viewer.  Ardell invited me to celebrate 45 years at the Langham Hotel in central London with a glamorous event to show off the new Press On Lashes and natural styles. Certainly Oscar Winners.

Australian brand Nude by Nature’s answer to natural mineral make-up.

nude by natureThe name NudebyNature conjures up thoughts of  the outdoors and reflects the concept of this beauty brand.  I understand from my newly discovered extended family ( who happen to be make-up artists) and live close to Melbourne Australia, say the brand widely advertised on infomercials. That’s an advertizing term i hadn’t ever heard before.  However i had the chance to try these products for myself at the event with journos Rebecca Barnes and Karen Heath at the London Launch in the Charlotte Street Hotel.  I have to say i  liked the consistency of the liquid foundation as it smooths over the skin so easily and naturally.

Homeopathic lineupWhether you’re a homeopathic believer or not these remedies will help any typical summer/travel health problems without having to resort to doctors meds. As a regular user of Homeopathic remedies and continue to enjoy the benefits they bring to my health over the years. Here’s some top tips on how to use the remedies above and what to do.

1. Make sure you never touch any of the tablets or the inside of the cap. Gently tip two tablets into the cap and then onto the tongue.  Let them dissolve gradually under the tongue. Always keep containers away from direct sunlight, strong fragrances, and the coolest place possible & keep them completely dry.

2. No eating or drinking ( apart from water)  up to 10-20 min either side of taking the remedy if possible.

3. If the problem is acute then take them every 20 min until it subsides & water is fine to drink.

There’s no side effects to taking these remedies so children, babies and loved pets would all benefit.

Lastly, insects either love or hate you, so if you’re one of these people who get bitten on a regular basis, a natural Insect Repellent spray £6.50 will keep them away.

Prices for the above remedies,  Jet Lag – Arnica, Coccolus 30c £12.95, Heat Rash – Urtica Sol Complex £12.95, Travel Sickness – Tabaccum Petroleum Cocculus 30c £12.95, Tummy Troubles – Aloe, Ars, Alb, Iris, Podophyllum 6c £12.95  & just below for Sun Burn – Urtica, Sol 30c £12.95.
