Raspberry: With A “P”

Raspberry: With A “P”

Raspberry, with a “p”.

I have always found raspberry to be one of those very lovely words.

Albeit a word with a strange spelling.

What is the “p” all about?
There is nothing “rasping” about raspberry.  

Raspberry denotes everything luscious and delicious.
A word to conjure up goodness and pleasure in every which way. Whether raspberry is a taste, a touch or a vision, all in all raspberry is one potent word.

Eat Your Way To Radiant Skin

Eat Your Way To Radiant Skin

Can we eat our way to radiant skin?

I would like to try. 

Beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within.

It seems true we are what we eat so I asked Lily to simplify my choices, to give me three elements to work on.

She suggested three ways each day to focus and improve not only how my skin looks but also how I feel. 

I won’t be dropping any of my skincare routines or relegating my best products to the back shelf but I will be upping my food intake with her suggestions.

In The Beach Bag

In The Beach Bag

What’s in the beach bag?

I’m packing for a week at the beach and so my mind is drifting with great enthusiasm to long lazy swims in crystal clear water and casual relaxed evenings outside.

I think about the pack in two parts; for the face and for the body.

The Secrets To A Healthy Heart

The Secrets To A Healthy Heart


The secrets to a healthy heart.

The heart? Do we ever really know completely what drives it? We know the physical signs and symptoms of a healthy heart but there are so many other less tangible factors that maintain and protect our hearts.

How can a heart feel broken? Sometimes it does.

How can a heart feel fit to bursting with love and happiness? It can.

If our hearts are physically healthy then we can more easily maintain our “emotional” hearts. The physical and emotional support each other and one can’t work without the other. 

I asked Lily for some some practical ways to keep our hearts healthy.

Robin Wright: Another Beautiful Face

Robin Wright: Another Beautiful Face

Robin Right is another beautiful and very striking face.

If nothing else I would watch House of Cards to observe her wardrobe and style signature. I’m not sure how she feels about it, but Robin Wright has so totally assumed the role of Claire Underwood it is hard to imagine her in any other role.


I admire her very sophisticated look in the show and her wardrobe is so totally in character; her personal stylist, Kemal Harris has exquisite taste and understands well the definition of “power dressing”.

7 Foods to Re-Boost And Re-Energise

7 Foods to Re-Boost And Re-Energise

7 Foods To re-boost and re-energise our systems.

How do we re-boost and re-energise?


I wish I felt energised and re-energised all the time but sometimes, despite best intentions, I feel sluggish.


I know we should re-boost the immune system before we need and stock up on all the necessary goodness to ward off the nasties, it makes great sense, but it is easy to forget.


I asked Lily for some reminders, an easy accessible list of ingredients to make us feel perky and sparky.
