Bottoms up to the weekend... 🥂 have a good one all..... so wish I was back on the beach, trying out a yoga move ... after one session 🤣☀️💓#FormPoliceLeaveItOutItsFriday

Is anyone else constantly talking to themselves? I don’t know a time that I’ve switched off from my thoughts completely. So, when I saw this quote, I just had to share it is from @kayla_itsines - so true 🙌❤️👌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It also got me thinking, It’s so easy to pick out the negatives or pick up on things that have gone wrong. We overthink what we could have done better, what we should have said, how we said it and so on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We live in a fast-paced world, constantly trying to keep up with everything – work, life, friends and family. So it’s really, really important to take a step back and actually see how far we’ve come. Take 5 minutes at the end of the day or at the end of the week to consider all of the positive things that have happened to you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Make a conscious effort to talk to yourself in a positive way, talk to yourself as you would to your friends who need you or your advice as we can be so hard on ourselves.. ❤️

Thank you so much, means a lot Veronika ❤️🤗😭😍🙌☀️. • @nourishkitchenbyv Friday LOVE

Who is your inspiration?⁣
❤️⁣
This month I have won tickets to @veganlife_live live through Lucy Bee competition.⁣
❤️⁣
I must say that it was such a great event full of different vegan products and full of inspiring people and businesses.⁣
❤️⁣
One of the inspiring ladies for me was, of course, @lucybeecoconut and in fact, the whole team was just fab. This shows if the family pulls together, some MAGIC happens.⁣
❤️⁣
I admire Lucy for everything she does and she is a true inspiration, especially if you are thinking to run your own business at some point.⁣
❤️⁣
She is so down to Earth and since I have started following her 3 years ago, I just realised that she had to put a face against their brand which probably was the scariest thing. She is now visible across the social media, as well as the social events, but overall she is just HER. She doesn't pretend to be someone else and always says it, as it is and that's what I respect the most because HONESTY is the key to success.⁣
❤️⁣
Lucy Bee team, you are doing a fantastic job and I can't get hands on more of your products.⁣
❤️⁣
If you are after Fair Trade coconut oil, Omega-3 oil (helps to improve my acne) or the most incredible creamy Coconut Milk, then definitely check their products.⁣
❤️⁣
This isn't a sponsored post. I am just reflecting on March and what it brought into my life, as we need to cherish and be grateful for the moments we have/had.⁣
❤️⁣
Have a lovely weekend, you beautiful lot.⁣
❤️⁣
Lots of love⁣

Why is your business called Lucy Bee? 🐝 Something I get asked a lot when at shows or when I meet people. when we (my dad and I) decided to call it Lucy Bee, I thought it was really weird and even said to my dad, no way! Why would we call a jar of coconut oil ‘Lucy Bee’ but the reason for it is, when I was 18 months old, I was diagnosed a coeliac. I was really poorly, went from being a happy baby, to a very upset, miserable one. I had malnutrition and it was a really hard time for my parents, I didn’t sleep, my digestive system was all over the place (these two factors have definitely continued growing up). They had to educate themselves on what I could have, as they had never known anyone with an allergy and back then, there was hardly any free from foods on the market, pasta looked like porridge for example 😖. Growing up it meant we have always been into our health and wellbeing as a family, so when we were using coconut oil by a friend from Hong Kong; we were using it in our cooking and as a skincare product (I had my own business as a beauty therapist) we decided we wanted to bring one out that was Fair Trade, Organic, Extra Virgin and in glass jars. Why ‘Bee’ because my surname starts with a B, friends call me Lucy B, so we added the EE; because bumble bees remind us our nature and it had a nice ring to it. People also ask me why Lucy Bee over a cheaper brand? We are No.1 Ethical Best Buy - this is from the ethics behind it, being in glass, the fair trade side of it - farmers are on wages, insurance of themselves, crops, medical bills, school scholarships, feeding programs and more!, no monkeys are used in the harvesting. We have a lot more info on the website. I would really recommend looking into the ethics of your current oil, I will post the chart tomorrow. We are so passionate about what we do as a family business and we are so grateful for all your support so far ❤️. What else do you want to know about Lucy Bee/Me... comment below 👇.

Take social media with a pinch of salt. It’s not real, it is people’s best highlights, sometimes photos can be so far from the truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When someone smiles, smile back and ask them if they are ok. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are all facing our own battles, some of our ‘strongest friends’ or even the loudest people in the room, could be facing battles you wouldn’t even know about or think to ask them about, simply because of the vibe they give off . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be kind to everyone, be aware of the words you use, or if you are on social media, what comments/messages you leave someone, throw away comments or horrible comments can make a huge impact on someone, more than you could ever realise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all talk so openly about our days, nights out, the vanity stuff... the irrelevant stuff really, but why do we feel we can’t really open up about our mental health? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our brain is so powerful – it doesn’t care what we look like, what we’ve got, the jobs we have, it can literally take over everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are not taught how to cope with anxiety and depression and it’s bloody scary how your mind can take over and make it hard to see past the thoughts within. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But together, we can be there for one another, help each other through and know that you are not alone, you are not weak, not anything, other than someone who needs help and to talk and that’s ok. I know it’s scary, hard and a rollercoaster of emotions but to anyone out there who is struggling, please please know you are loved and if you open up, there will be many people who will be able to help you. I also find when I post/talk to people about insecurities, issues or mental health, you realise how many other people are going through the same, so please don’t feel alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Take time to look after your mental health ❤️

😘
