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’…

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.
