Turmeric: The Wonder Spice

Turmeric: The Wonder Spice

Turmeric is a wonder spice.

I asked Lily all about why the hype for turmeric is so great.

Before I hand over to her, there is one element I will warn you about; the colour.

My first experience with turmeric was somewhat challenging. All I can say is the orange/yellow teeth stain which took forever to remove, was not a pretty look. Fortunately 3 toothbrushes later, it wasn’t permanent.

I must have become over excited and added to much of this wonder spice to the mix ;)

Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc: Plus ça Change, Plus c’est la Même Chose

Hotel du Cap-Eden-Rock; it really is true to say the more things change, the more they stay the same.

I am slow today, still luxuriating in the most wonderful weekend we enjoyed at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

If you follow on Instagram you will know we were there to celebrate David’s birthday.

It was a big one and deserved attention, as does he. He is one amazing and fabulous guy.

The Simple Way To Detox

The Simple Way To Detox

The simple way to detox?

Is there such a thing? I mean, has detoxing ever been simple?


Lily tells me there are certain foods to aid detox and they are easy and delicious to incorporate in our diets. The more I learn from Lily, the more I see a pattern emerging. There are some foods we can’t avoid and we shouldn’t. 


After the summer and a little vacation time I need to up my intake of these foods.


What about you? Do you have any others we should include in our detox regime?

Over to Lily,

Better Not Younger: A Game Of Challenge

Better Not Younger: A Game Of Challenge

Better, not younger.

The more I say it, the more I like it.

This is a game of challenge.
It is a challenge not to want to look younger, feel younger, act younger and “be” younger.

We know in all honesty we can’t but it doesn’t stop us trying.
Even the more confident of us must waiver slightly from time to time.

Awareness of what is right, the knowledge of good sense and the wisdom to follow through are not always by our side.

6 Ways To Clear Bright Eyes

6 Ways To Clear Bright Eyes

Clear bright eyes?

As much as holidays are about rest and relaxation they can also mean a little extra “fun” and lack of sleep. Before I left for our Greek getaway I asked Lily for some easy ways to keep eyes shiny and bright.

Eye health is something I am aware of, my mother has suffered from macular degeneration for many years and truthfully it’s one of those senses we need to be vigilant over.

It never hurts to be reminded of the natural ways we can look after ourselves. As well informed as we are, it is easy to lose track sometimes.


Here are the top 6 foods to keep eyes healthy and vision sharp.

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.
