Wistful Wednesday; or is that mid-week mindful? Zen-out the easy way

Wistful Wednesday I’m going all Zen like and mindful…well mini-mindful if there’s such a phrase!

Rating ; Yin-Yang , zen zen, mindfuller than full, no time to be mindful. Take a breath! My mum is at a class tonight starting a new course of mindfulness ; whilst I might not be able to join her (one day in my next life), instead I’m indulging in a little at home zen-spaness tonight with my very own home sanctuary.

Inside scoop;  Mindfulness I’m told takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master, or maybe the other way around ; either way given I’m at home not on a course, I’m indulging in a few cheat’s steps to a more zen you! Or me. Heck even 5 minutes blissing out can reap wonders for mind, body and spirit. And it doesn’t come more ‘quick fix’ than these ‘Life elixirs’…

Mindfulness in a mini bottle yes please!

So its mid-week madness, kids or hubby or partner driving you nuts, bills to pay, kids to hoover, husband to clean, cats to iron, ahhh scratch ALL that if your head is full, your to do list bursting. CHIIILLLL.  Take a breath, take a minute and zen-out all spa like with Elemis’s home spa treats.  A dab here, a massage there, a deep deep inhalation breath and you’ll be as blissed out as an Essex wife on Love Island with a giant Marguerita (euuww now there’s a thought).  

So seriously, not got time for  yoga, too max’ed out to be mindful, too zany to be zen ; it’s all fine, Elemis’s new Life Elixirs range could just cure all ills.  Super fast, super effective. 

Even the names have got me so laid back I’m almost horizontal.  I’ve bought a number of them (oops) more than a teeny-bit addictive…but what smells good and does you good surely IS GOOD. 




Local to me but global beauty EMPORIUM of loveliness (like SERIOUSLY full of lovelylovelyness!)  stocks them all online and some locally in their shop at VAT prices, as I think does UBER spa on my home island Bella Spa (more on that den of spa heavenlyness coming SOON).

I love love the whole range. Elemis use quality oils and take care in the ingredients, stylish packaging but it’s more about the beauty on the INSIDE than the outside (as we know anyone who tells you that is usually LYING) in this case it IS true…but they’re not un-easy on the eye/bathroom shelf either.

They say ; This comforting collection offers five miniature bath and shower elixirs to restore the balance in your life.
