the power of laughter

Interesting to hear this, isn’t it! Sounds funny to think that laughing can have an effect on us! Well let me tell you… Laughing will not only help you burn some calories by activating your muscles, it actually relaxes our body. It relieves pain, reduces blood pressure and decreases stress. Smile … or even better, laugh out loud! It’s the best medicine we can find. Just give it a go! Start your day with a big laugh, you will notice the difference. How does this work?  Laughter helps the brain regulate the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline and promotes the release of endorphin while enhancing immune reactivity.

We all like a little bit of glamour.

green travels

Have you ever thought about being more sustainable on your trip? Sounds tricky, but the truth is that it is only about making simple choices before & during your journey. You may ask yourselves how much of an impact do I have and what difference will it make? The answer is a big one and it is simple and easy decisions that make this possible.  Here are some tips to make this easier for you and give you less to think about during your stay:

crystal sparkle look

Some days you just want to shine. It can be for a special occasion, a wedding, a party, an important work event, or just because you are celebrating life and your place in it! We love those moments when you feel inspired, uplifted and happy. Life is full of challenges, but by marking the good moments every chance we can, the glass can start to look half full instead of half empty. When you want a little bit of shimmer, when you feel that special buzz in the air, when you feel like anything is possible and nothing’s going to stop you – this is the look for you. We call it crystal sparkle, after our favourite quartz crystal that is beautiful, positive and made by nature. Think clear, luminous, the quality of catching the sunlight or moonlight when it’s shining just for you.

clean your brushes

How often do you clean your brushes? I have asked family and friends this question and to my surprise most of them answered that they have never done it! The ideal answered would have been … once a week.  I know we are always moving and think we don’t have time to be cleaning our brushes, but it is so important for so many reasons! Most of all is the bad bacteria building in the brushes – yuk, the performance of them, and the bonus that taking care of things will always make them last longer – so you don’t need to be buying more, think of the environment and your wallet.
