Rosacea What to do ?

Hi Everyone, 

How are you all today?

lets talk about skin, well not just skin but more specifically Rosacea. As you all know I am a make up artist. A lot of my clients suffer with Rosacea and it can really affect there confidence.

What is Rosacea? 

it is a skin inflammation disorder. It can start with short period of skin reddening but these symptoms can progress in to skin burning and stinging, Spots and pustules, permanent redness in the skin and small blood vessels becoming visible. In sever cases this can make the nose more swollen and eyes blood shot and watery. 

Rosacea is know as a condition that affect people in there 30's but this is just not true, any age can suffer from this condition and the worst case I have seen was a teenage boy. Unfortunately there is no medical cure for this condition and it can affect people not only physically but mentally. But don't worry there is treatment to help!

The best Rosacea treatments has been developed by pulse light clinic in London. The use an IPL Device this emits light waves. Which penetrate the skin getting to the hemoglobin in the blood vessels. This causes the blood vessel wall to be come damaged but in a controlled manner. This trigger the body natural repair mechanism which breaks down and removes the damage tissue. This giving room for new cells to form and replace the old damaged cells with clear healthier gorgeous looking skin.  

Contact Pulse Light Clinic to book in a free consultation and patch-test

Not only is the skin treated but they have a nutritionist to help you repair our body and skin from the inside out. You know the old saying "your are what you eat"! Well lets face it we are all in the habit of forgetting this sometimes. I know I don't eat any seafood or fish and I add cod liver oil to my daily supplements. Perfect! Too many of us are sent to the doctor and given the antibiotics and that's that not actually getting to the nittie gritty of the issue and more tablets to take. Like me many people have bad after effect from antibiotics too going to the clinic will cut all that out too.

Winter tyre safety. Have you checked yours?

Hi Everyone, 

How is everyone today? 

well the first frost has hit us up here in the north, which means its that's time of year. If you have been following me for a while you will know I'm a ex cop and at this time of year the importance of road safety is ingrained on my mind. 

If you seen my last post on tips for driving you'll know all that. 

One of the most under checked areas of a car is the Tyres! We all check our lights and oil and water levels but most people forget about our tyres. How crazy is that these four little pieces of rubber keep us on the road. I could frighten you with how many crashes I have seen with tyres that are either down to the thread or bulging and even ripped.

Checking a Tyre is so easy. 
You can buy a tyre gauge online I always had one in my pocket on duty. I am no a pro and can check them with my finger. 
 Image result for tyres wear gauge

The legal limit for tread depth is 1.6mm in a continuous band around the central 75 percent of the tread width and around the whole Tyre.

All tyres have a ware bar on them and this is the simplest way to check when you need to go get your tyres changed. 

It is vital to check for any rips cuts and bulges. Our tyres are what keeps us on the road if you have any trouble hop over to my friends at point-s.co.uk
Who will be more than happy to help you find the best and cheap tyres for your car. They will keep you safe on the road. 
if like me you hate calling people on the phone you can book online. Heaven! if like me your just far to busy to pick up the phone. 
They stock all the big names from continental to bridgestone they have one that will suit you. 

Have you checked your car yet this year?

Redbull fox hunt 2016

Hi everyone, 

I attended this years red bull fox hunt in Cumbria with two of my friends. After not knowing if I should go as I ended up in hospital on the Wednesday before I decided to just go and see how i got one. I have to say this was my first proper biking since damaging my knee (Torn ACL) The race was 9 weeks since I did the damage. 

A bit of girl power and I got the car in to the very muddy field. 

There was a lot of very high end bikes. Here is boardie all suited and booted for the weekend. 
The first day was a few runs down and seeding. 
My seeding run was terrible as I had no back brake here is Rachel Atherton checking my brakes and telling me to go to the maintenance tent. Me being Me still did the run no brakes defo the most scary thing I have done in as long as I can remember. With not being on a bike for weeks then doing a track with a few steep section there is a huge chance I'm off my head! 

 This photo was taken in the only uplift we got at the weekend after this the jeep couldn't make it up the hill so we had to walk.  
 The practice run on the day of the race. Not many girls went all the way to the top it was a long push but we wanted to try the full course before the race. 
 waiting for the up lift that ended up in carnage. 
 The cramps were really after carrying our bikes up 5 times 
My race run was not the best I had someone with a puncher crash in to me at the top section so I picked my self back up and carried on. I had a few more crashes on the way down 266 girls on one track equals carnage!

After the race I went back up with my girls to do the final drop I hate people watching me and 
I didn't feel confident to do it on the race. 

It was a great weekend and my two girls got amazing results Fi coming in at top 20 and Claire in the 50's
Cant wait to get some mojo back and get some shredding done.

Shake that Weight review

Hi Everyone, 

How are you all today? 

So its been a while but lets talk the latest weight loss system I have been reviewing. shakethatweight.co.uk Shake the weight has loads of plans so there is defo one to suit everyone needs. I chose the two weeks plan giving me a chance to get used to the diet. 
Two weeks is £52.50 This gives you a huge amount of products! 
You Pick 14 breakfast items 14 lunch and 14 mid afternoon snacks as you have a low calorie meal at night of your own choice!
For breakfast I pick mostly shakes which were all really nice and creamy and filing. This is a very low calorie plan and If I am honest it was hard to get used to but more than worth it. 
I have to say the only thing I really didn't like was the porridge. It was a very strange try of consistency. I would defo swap these for more shakes!  The muesli bars were great grab and go items to, 

Lunch for me was by far my favorite part of the day. the soups were good and filling and tasted great but lets talk the noodle. I LOVED them so tasty so filling and full of flavor!

The snacks oh the snacks!
These are so nice they feel sinful. imagine me eating them in a cupboard. They don't taste like diet treats. Honey nougat bar is divine its so unquiet I honestly don't know how to describe it. Ok when I ran out I felt very sad. I wish I had ordered more of the lemon bars they were the right about of zingy and sweet. 


Last but not least water flavoring. This doesn't just make water more interesting but it adds fiber to your diet which is awesome. Loads of diet company's forget that whilst you restrict calories you removed fiber and we need fiber in our diet. This to me proves how focused this brand is on not just weight loss but your body too.

Due to a computer fail and my lack of backing up my before and after photos are gone but I can say in two week I lost 3 kg! In two weeks not to bad.

Have you tried shake the weight?
