Remember To Treat Yourself As Well As Looking After Everyone Else

It’s very easy to get rushed off your feet looking after the wants and needs of other people. This could be answering questions for colleagues at work, finishing tasks out-of-hours for a boss, making sure your children are fed, clothed and entertained. It could be helping a neighbour with their shopping or checking in on relatives who may have been self-isolating during lockdown.

Top Tip – Make time for a long soak in a soothing bath this month

To make sure you can carry on helping others it’s important to take care of yourself. When flying, there’s the safety talk at the start of the flight advising passengers to “put your own oxygen mask on first” and this makes sense. How can you look after someone else when you’re running out of air?

Luckily, help is at hand! You really don’t have to do everything yourself, all the time. Through collaboration with others, learning accountability and extra time management skills can make a big difference. I can help with these things, but I also wanted to share with you the power of looking after yourself through something as simple and straightforward as making time to treat yourself.

Detox and Relax

Making time in your diary to relax and recharge is a vital part of keeping the balance between being busy and being stressed. It’s great to be busy, jumping from one job to the next to the next. But it can be draining on your time and your energy and this is where scheduling in “relax and recharge” time is essential for your mental and physical health.

When we feel good, we enjoy life more. The knock-on effect of being happy often makes us more outgoing and more productive. We achieve more and look for new opportunities.

Make Time for Bath Time

This is my top tip today! At least once a month, make time to run yourself a deep bath and immerse yourself in warm water to soothe troubles away. Add a shake of Arbonne’s Rescue & Renew Detox Soak dissolving sea salt crystals into the mix and you’re set for an aromatic journey whisking you away from anything that’s playing on your mind.

Let the pure essential oils cleanse and revitalise your skin. With natural ingredients such as grapefruit, tangerine, lavender, juniper berry, orange, rosemary, dandelion, turmeric and ginger root, you’ll be transported into a luxurious blend of smells and senses revitalising you inside and out.

I’ve been using Arbonne products myself for many years and can thoroughly recommend the Rescue & Renew range of sensual, relaxing and revitalising ways to relax and recharge. The products are vegan, cruelty free, gynaecologic and allergy tested, meaning they can be used safely no matter your skin type or skin sensitivity.

Give Yourself the Best Chance for Success with More Energy and More Endurance

Just as you’d check your car has plenty of fuel, oil, and water to keep running at optimum performance, did you know that you can do exactly the same for your body and mind? By looking after your body and mind you’ll automatically have more energy, more strength, and more endurance.

And, it’s easier than you might think.

If you’ve seen me at 4N Online meetings, you’ll know I always have a water bottle with me. Taking frequent sips of water throughout the day means I’m rehydrating and replenishing the essential electrolytes and fluids I’ve used in my everyday activities. This is especially important when I’m 4Sighting as even sitting still and talking contributes to dehydration and fatigue.

What you may not know is that I’ve added Arbonne Phytosport Hydration Sticks to the water. The water changes colour with the flavours of orange, pomegranate and pineapple and it tastes great. But the science behind the hydration sticks is impressive and while I’m drinking the water, my body is receiving nourishment and care so I can keep going for longer between breaks.

PhytoSport Range provides hydration to assist with focus
PhytoSport Range provides hydration to assist with focus

There are three types of hydration sticks designed to help you at different stages of your day and especially before, during and after physical activity. These are suitable for both men and women aged 18 or over and can be added to water to drink at home, at work or on the move.

Prepare and Endure

These are the hydration sticks to use before or during your exercise regime. Everyone is different so you might use one before walking your dog, or while doing a 10k run.

After Workout

If you have sore muscles and fatigue, these hydration sticks are designed to restore energy and support muscle growth and recovery while helping to reduce downtime between workouts.

Complete Hydration

As the name suggests, these sticks contain Arbonne’s blend of plant powered performance to promote a healthy body and mind. By staying hydrated you’ll feel alert, refreshed, and awake.

Keeping your body and mind working at peak performance makes life easier. You’ll feel more positive, more flexible and this will help you achieve more than when weighed down with muscle soreness and fatigue.

So, just as you would keep your car supplied with fuel, oil, and water, you can do the same for your body and mind. Arbonne Phytosport Hydration Sticks are vegan, gluten free, with no artificial colours, flavours, or sweeteners.

Arbonne sticks also certified by Informed Sport, the certification programme for sports supplements, raw materials and manufacturing facilities, another way Arbonne demonstrates a company-wide policy of creating environmentally sustainable and cruelty-free products.

If you would like to improve your performance, to drive the success of your business or navigate better ways of working on your own or in your team, please message me. I can help advise which hydration solutions will fit in best with your lifestyle and give you that turbo charged energy boost.

Do You Want The “Salon Fresh” Effect From Your Home Shampoo and Conditioner?

Going to the hairdresser is a monthly treat for many men and women. It’s the best opportunity to put aside any work commitments and home duties for a while. The feeling of being cared for and pampered while you relax in a comfy chair away from the hustle and bustle of life is something to look forward to.

Going to the hairdresser is a monthly treat
Going to the hairdresser is a monthly treat

As well as catching up on the latest gossip, chatting about homelife and holidays, it’s a place of real calm where time stops and you’re the centre of attention for a while. Having a new haircut, restyle, colour, trim, shave or simply a wash and blow-dry, there are lots of choices.

Afterwards, when the mirror shows your new cut and colour from the front, side and back, you feel a million dollars, having split ends cut away or new layers, the small to the big changes have a huge positive effect on your mindset and wellbeing.

There’s the smell of the luxury shampoo and conditioner, the prolonged head massage, the cup of tea or coffee, the whole experience is second to none.

But it isn’t always possible to find time to do this every time you wash your hair and that’s where the Arbonne range of True Hair products exceeds all expectations. You can choose from the replenishing mask, daily shampoo, daily conditioner and the leave-in treatment, or use a combination of all four amazing products. You have the freedom to choose when and where you wash your hair without booking an appointment. At home, at the gym, at a friend’s house, there’s no restriction and Arbonne’s products can be used every day.

I’m an Arbonne Independent Consultant of several years and I am able to answer any questions about using these products. I can also help recommend which one would be best for you or for a friend if you’re planning a surprise gift.

True Hair Replenishing Mask

At last, an intense replenishing mask to transform dull, lifeless hair with a burst of nourishing deep hydration. This mask contains boosting botanicals including pea protein, sustainably sourced baobab and ashwagandha root. You’ll feel the difference in your hair health and love the shine from root to tip.

True Hair Daily Shampoo

Try this luxurious low lather gluten-free shampoo to remove build-up from your hair without stripping away essential moisturiser. You’ll find your hair softer, smoother, more luminous, silky and healthy. Using Arbonne’s natural ingredients your hair becomes stronger with less breakage. It’s also suitable for daily use on all hair types, including colour treated.

True Hair Daily Conditioner

This lightweight, nutrient rich formula is designed to rinse clean, detangle and leave your hair manageable and silky smooth. Using sustainably sourced baobab to help replenish critical moisture and repair damage. It’s gentle enough to use every day on all hair types. With a light matcha green tea scent the True Hair Daily Conditioner is the perfect partner to the True Hair Daily Shampoo.

True Hair Daily Leave-In Treatment

For the ultimate aftercare for your hair, try the True Hair Daily Leave-In Treatment. Used in conjunction with the mask, shampoo, conditioner or on its own, you can lock in healthy looking shiny hair between washes (or salon visits). Anti-frizz and Arbonne’s restorative treatment help to protect your hair throughout the day.

Arbonne’s 40 years of experience in the health, skincare and nutrition industry backed by solid scientific research and a dedication to cruelty-free products makes the best use of natural ingredients from sustainable sources. The products are good for you and good for the environment too.

To find out more, please give me a call on 07756 772950. I can arrange for your Arbonne order to arrive at a home or work address, or to be posted to a destination of your choice. I am proud to be an ambassador for Arbonne and can answer any questions you may have.

Is the Arbonne 30 Day Challenge for You?

We’re nearly a quarter of the way through 2020 already. The year is flying past and it feels a long way since the cold, dark months in January. The days are getting lighter and there’s the hint of Spring in the air.

This made me think back to my January New Year Resolutions and I wondered how many of my friends have stuck to the goals they set. Resolutions to stop smoking, lose weight, eat healthy food, to exercise more, to travel more, everyone chose something different.

What's included in the Arbonne 30days Challenge?
What’s included in the Arbonne 30days Challenge?

It was easy in January with the new year momentum propelling changes in both personal life and at work. But how many resolutions have slipped by the wayside. It is likely many cigarettes have been smoked, extra pounds have been gained and gym membership cards are gathering dust in wallets and purses. The signs of our failed resolutions exist in many ways. But it doesn’t have to be like this.

I’m a firm believer of looking after myself from the inside to the outside. I’m more conscious than ever about the food I choose and making sure I take regular exercise. It helps because I’ve got an energetic dog who loves to walk in the park. She keeps me motivated, even when it’s raining. We go out every day and I always feel better for it.

Another way I look after myself is using the “30 Days to Healthy Living Program” from Arbonne. For those of you who know me well, you’ll know I’m an Arbonne Independent Consultant, an ambassador for Arbonne products. I truly believe these products work and cannot recommend them highly enough.

The 30 Days to Healthy Living Program is surprisingly easy, simple to follow and achieves great results by building new habits to improve life-long health.

You’ll Gain:

  • More Energy
  • More Vitality
  • More Engaged in Life
  • More Happiness

Using the 30 Days to Healthy Living Program, you’re embarking on a health journey that will rest your liver and kidneys to maximise their function. You’re not on your own. The program includes the tools and knowledge to increase awareness of food types and how they interact with your body and work with or against your lifestyle.

It’s a gentle program scientifically engineered to bring out the best in your body, to give you more energy, focus, motivation and zest for life.

If you’re feeling heavy, anxious, irritable or tired, this program can help. If your joints ache, your movement is limited and it’s hard to focus during the day, the 30 Days program can help.

I’ve seen first-hand how this program literally transforms lives. Lethargy becomes vitality. Anxiety turns to confidence and uncertainty and fog turns to focus and clarity.

The best part of the 30 Days to Healthy Living Program is how easy it is to implement alongside your current lifestyle. If you would like to find out more, please give me a call on 07756 772950.

What’s The Perfect Gift To Treat Your Mum On Mother’s Day?

This year, Mother’s Day is celebrated on Sunday the 22nd of March in the UK. With origins in religion and service, it’s the one day of the year set aside to especially appreciate our mothers and mother figures. Whether you choose to celebrate the day with your biological mother, stepmother, guardian or an influential woman in your life, the 22nd of March 2020 is the date to put in your diary.

MotherDay Cuddles
MotherDay Cuddles

In the olden days, daughters working as domestic servants were given the day off to visit their mothers and families. It was the one day of the year they could return home with the specific purpose of spending cherished time with their mothers, catching up on family news, sharing a special meal and spending precious time together.

With family usually living close by, daughters would pick flowers on their way home to give as a present to their mother. The soft fragrant scent of freshly picked countryside flowers would fill the home during her visit and for many days afterwards. Flowers, often roses, were the traditional gift to bring home to her family and this tradition is carried on by many women today.

The modern trend of living further afield with families often spread over different towns, counties and even in different countries means giving fresh flowers isn’t as practical as it once was. This is where modern technology can give video calls almost as realistic as being in the same room together. It’s where using modern transport can ship thoughtful gifts direct to your mother’s door.

Speaking of gifts, we’re all looking for something as special as the freshly picked flowers of the olden days to give to our mothers. While this isn’t as practical as it was, we can still send flowers of a different kind for her to enjoy on the day and for many days afterwards.

I’m talking about the Limited Edition Rescue & Renew Garden of Roses Gift Set, a delicious duo of a rose hibiscus scented Detox All Over Mist with rose water perfect for a refreshing spritz at any time of the day or night, and a rich, rose scented Body Butter designed to hydrate and make your skin feel like its enveloped in a blanket of roses.

This relaxing gift set is exclusively designed by Arbonne for celebrating Mother’s Day 2020. It’s a unique gift your Mum can use at home or at work. It’s also a limited-edition gift set so she won’t have tried this before. It carries all of Arbonne’s quality marks, cruelty-free, gluten-free and vegan.

As an Arbonne Independent Consultant and ambassador for the products, I can thoroughly recommend trying this new gift set. Beautifully packaged and containing top-quality products made with fair trade principles, these fragrant treats are sure to be a treat for your Mum.

For pricing and delivery options, please comment here, ask me at a 4Networking meeting, or give me a call on 07756 772950. Let’s make this a special Mother’s Day to remember.

While We’re In Lockdown, Do You Need Professional Hair Care At Home?

We’ve been in lockdown for a few weeks now and I’m seeing posts on my Facebook newsfeed with friends talking about how they miss going to the hairdresser. Lots of people want to get their roots done. Others just want a trim. With social distancing, if you want to get a cut and blow dry, or try out a new style, the chances are you’ll need to do it at home.

Look after your hair during LockDown
Look after your hair during LockDown

But, before you reach for the kitchen scissors, I’d just like to say it’s easier than you might think to care for your hair and keep it in the best condition ready for cutting and restyling. With your hair in tip-top condition, it will be easier to take hold of sections to cut, the cuts will be smoother, and you’ll reduce splitting and damage.

The secret starts with your hair washing regime, using a quality shampoo and revitalising conditioner to add hydration and shine to your locks. There’s no excuse not to cleanse, moisturise and protect your hair, especially if you use heated curlers or hair straighteners. Less is more when it comes to using products on your hair. A coin sized amount of shampoo and conditioner is plenty for short to shoulder length hair.

If you’re keen to trim your mane yourself, make sure you have great lighting and a mirror to see the results. Cutting slightly damp hair will give you a straighter line, but don’t forget your hair will bounce back slightly shorter when dry. Small and frequent cuts are more forgiving if you make a mistake. You can always take more off if you wish but if you chop too much it could take a few weeks or months to regrow.

I can thoroughly recommend the Arbonne True Hair range of daily shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment to help keep your hair looking silky smooth and manageable during the lockdown. Arbonne’s hair care products are certified vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free.

On the technical side, all of Arbonne’s hair products are paraben free, silicon free and sulphate free and have been developed using the latest research in scientific and ingredient technology. These truly are world-class products, protecting your hair from damage, using botanicals and cutting-edge science. From root to tip, you can nourish your hair with essential moisture, giving your hair that luminous, healthy shine.

While we’re in lockdown it’s important to get up, dress up and show up, especially as we’re engaging more and more in online get togethers. Even if your virtual meeting is with friends and family, they’ll want to know you’re taking care of yourself. With high quality webcams and phone cameras it’s easy to spot anyone who’s looking under the weather.

For business meetings, being smartly groomed with washed and brushed hair, a dash of make-up, jewellery and accessories is the key to creating that vital first impression. Just like in-person meetings, the effort you make when on camera pays off in real business results. If you’re feeling good about yourself everything else just falls into place.

To find out more, please give me a call on 07756 772950. I can arrange for your Arbonne True Hair order to arrive at a home or work address, or to be posted to a destination of your choice.

Staying Safe With “No Touch” Deliveries From Arbonne

After the Easter holidays and with Covid-19 ever present, it’s even more important to be aware of our physical boundaries, giving space between each other to reduce the spread of infection. We’re being recommended to allow at least two metres distance between people from different households, not to meet in groups and to stay indoors. So, it’s inevitable that our online shopping has soared as we seek to buy things to keep us nourished, occupied and entertained.

Recent statistics suggest that we’ve been buying more than usual for this time of the year. Some sales figures suggest our online shopping in March and April will be comparable with our usual Christmas spending amounts. While this is great news for online retailers and food distributors, it can present problems on our doorstep.

Proud to be an Arbonne Independent consultant

We’re used to greeting delivery men and women, to reaching out to accept our parcels in our hands. For many deliveries we’re using the stylus attached to the cord to squiggle our name. The same stylus someone else used to accept the parcel before ours and same stylus someone else will use after us. This shared object, the one we all use, can be a bearer of germs and potentially a risk for the vulnerable. Not to mention the overall risks to the delivery person being in close range with so many people in different parts of the country all in one day.

The good news is that many companies have relaxed their rules about signed for deliveries. Protecting both the delivery person and the recipient, parcels are being left on doorsteps, in greenhouses, garages, garden sheds and with neighbours. Arbonne is one of the companies advocating the no-touch delivery method and working hard to protect all customers.

It’s times like these when I’m proud to be an Arbonne Independent Consultant. I know that every order my customers place will be treated with the utmost care and attention. I trust that every parcel will reach the person who has ordered it, whether for themselves or for a friend or family member. I am especially glad to see more orders being placed on behalf of others.

It’s a sign that even with the most stringent lockdown our country has faced so far that we still care for others. We still want to show our love and appreciation sending gifts through the post even though we can’t currently exchange presents in person.

If you would like to send a special gift to your parents, grandparents, brother, sister, colleague or customer, I can thoroughly recommend the range of sustainable, environmentally friendly skin, bath and beauty products in the Arbonne collection. You may also find something to treat yourself while the lockdown continues.

To find out more, please give me a call on 07756 772950. I can arrange for your Arbonne order to arrive at a home or work address, or to be posted to a destination of your choice. I am proud to be an independent consultant for Arbonne and can answer any questions you may have about the products, the science, sustainability and environmental difference Arbonne are making in our ever-changing world.

Who can resist shopping and cake?

Shopping and cake. These are two of my favourite things. Are they yours? If you like shopping or cake, or both, come and join me at my “Celebrating 40 Years of Arbonne” event! It’s on from 7pm to 9pm on Monday the 16th of March at Wet Led (Church Street, Macclesfield) and everyone’s welcome to come along.

At the event I’ll be showcasing some of the award-winning products created by Arbonne. So, if you fancy some pampering, come along! I’ll be able to show you some of the fabulous skincare cleansers, toners, moisturisers and creams to smooth out wrinkles and make your skin glow radiantly.

We can talk about the latest make-up trends, which colours are popular this season, and how to wear different types of make-up during the day and how to add special effects for evenings out.

I’ve noticed the Arbonne moisturising lip balms are extremely popular at this time of the year when it’s still cold outside. The soothing moisture lip balm with sustainable shea butter can be used on its own, or because it’s clear in colour, it can be used as a base layer to protect your lips before a coat of lipstick. Having chapped lips can be awkward for eating and speaking and this deceptively simple product can ease painful lips and boost your confidence.

Arbonne is a pioneer in plant-based, 100% vegan, cruelty-free products, created from sustainable sources and backed by both scientific and clinical research. I am proud to be a brand ambassador for this amazing company with its holistic values to improve the skin, body and mind, inside and outside.

I mentioned cake at the beginning and there will be plenty of cake at Wet Led on the 16th of March. Lots of cake and lots of drinks as well! I’m hoping the evening will be filled with fun and laughter, chatting about everything from family to holidays, stories of adventures and most of all, bringing people together.

I hope anyone who arrives as a stranger will leave as a friend. My event “Celebrating 40 Years of Arbonne” is open to everyone however please confirm you’re coming (very important for cake supplies!) using the contact details below.
