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’…

It’s T time – Treat Try Tummy Tea TODAY!

It’s 5 T time : that stands for TREAT TRY TUMMY TEA TODAY!

Rating ; Tuesday = T-Time that stands for T for Treat Try tummy Tea; ok not STRICTLY a beauty product BUT I always feel if you look after the inside then the outside looks a bit better and certainly you FEEL better. So Tuesday’s Top TREAT is TEA. Herbal of course, high quality bien sur, beautifully designed but of course…

Inside scoop ; They say beauty is skin deep I say dig deeper TEA could just be the cure for all Tuesday ills and more.  And it doesn’t come more tasty tempting and tea-like than the quirky range from T2.  Discovered – well ok lured into – their store in Oxford Street I find myself T-eed up and ready to rave about T2.
