Lounging companion. Maisie (my sister's cat) likes to hang out wherever it's warm and where there are humans to lavish her with love 🐱😍 .

Back to it // I've been wearing shorts, walking boots, pretty much the same t-shirt and a cap for the past 2 weeks on the Canadian escapade.
.
Now I have to wear proper clothes again?! It's gonna take some getting used to this week. Back to work and all that.

What are you up to this week?

Canada you have been magnificent these past 2 weeks. We've hiked in forests and up mountains, hung out with huskies, got turned back twice on trails due to moose on the loose.

The most glorious moment: when we saw grizzly bear mamas and cubs on two separate occasions 🐻🐻. Once we were in the car and the other time we were on foot and very close 💩. We followed our bear training (5 mins from tourist information on how to use bear spray....) and backed away talking calmly to her so she knew we were human. Ever tried talking to a bear?! And Mr H is commenting at this point how fast bears can run...
.
So this is NOT my photo it came via marcosecchi @unsplash who is a whole lot braver when it comes to hanging aroud bears than I am. I am just sooooo happy to have seen them in the wild.

See you back in Blighty 🇬🇧. #grizzlybear #canadalife #getoutdoorsmore #fernie #gloriouswellness #befreakingglorious

Eat organic everything? In an ideal world yes, we would. But in the real world it's not possible for most of us. So how to prioritise what's worth buying organic?

During my @nutritionschool studies we learnt about the Clean 13 and Dirty Dozen compiled each year by @EnvironmentalWorkingGroup.

Meaning? Fruits + veggies on the Clean 13 list have the lowest pesticide residue. Those on the Dirty Dozen list have the highest. So when choosing what to buy, spend your £ $ on those on the Dirty Dozen list first: 🍓🍏🍐🌶🥔🍇 strawberries
spinach
nectarines
peaches
grapes
apples
pears
peppers
chillis
celery
tomatoes
potatoes

And if you eat them, choosing organic meat, fish and dairy makes sense too.

Ah Radium Hot Springs: water emerges from the earth at 39°C and we get to wallow in it soaking up the warmth and the minerals.

And my fave long-sleeved @une_piece protects from the sun 'cos it's 31°C out of the water. My article on summer skincare is up on the Une Piece blog right now ->www.unepiece.com<- all about keeing it simple and streamlined when travelling this summer.

🥑🌱Breakfast greens. To be honest there haven't been many insta-worthy breakfasts so far on this trip, until we found a gem of a cafe @thecommunitea in a beautiful little town called Canmore.

Say hello to a 🌈 of veggies plus eggs + blackbeans for protein. Game on. Might try making something like this back home. .

Calgary // you're cool, we loved hanging out. And standing on that glass-floored observation deck. Trying not to look down 🙈

#gloriouswellness #befreakingglorious #thehealthcoachtohighflyers #calgary

Dairy makes my skin misbehave. Especially cow's milk and I get asked 'so how do you get enough calcium?' Easy. I get calcium from plant sources like:
.
🍀sesame seeds - I add them to porridge and granola and salads
🍀tahini i.e. another name for sesame seed paste - often used in hummus (yum!!)
🍀dark green veg like kale, rocket, cabbage, spring greens and broccoli
🍀almonds
🍀red kidney beans

It sure does. A few minutes a day before you shower makes a big difference. Start at the soles of your feet and move up your body, brushing towards your heart. It's a natural detoxifier and exfoliator.

Monochromed up and ready for a big evening. I used to loathe the idea of networking until I twigged that it's just another word for getting to hang out with interesting people and maybe make a connection or two. And over the past 3 years of this entrepreneurial life, I've had to get over myself and embrace it.

Tonight's event @thesavoylondon is a gathering of senior marketing bods. Thank you @starcomww @publicis_london for the invite. Publicis is where I landed my first job fresh out of @EMLyonBusiness 10000 years ago.

How do you feel about networking: love or loathe?

Warmer days, brighter breakfasts // homemade (low sugar) granola recipes are on www.gloriouswellness.com. I love granola. I never buy it though, 'cos most shop-bought ones are scarily laden with sugar. It's pretty easy to make your own though, with very little added sweetener. Link in bio for a simple recipe if you want to try making your own.

Honey skin booster // a #wellnesscrushwednesday shout out to Becky founder of @holisticskin. I was bemoaning the fact that my cheeks were dry (air con, air travel....) and Becky suggested I try a honey face mask.
.
I dampen my skin, then massage in a teaspoon of honey (I bought a jar of local unfiltered honey for this very purpose, not the clear squeezy supermarket stuff), leave it on for 10 mins. Doing this a few times a week has made a big difference. Thank you @holisticaskin you rock 💋

💋 Lovely lips // Since I switched to more simple, natural skincare, I've been applying the same logic to lips. The skin on our lips doesn't produce sebum and is more absorptive than other parts of our body: meaning what you put ON your lips matters. I found that using products made with mineral oil or petrolatum made my lips drier over time, especially the medicated ones I used to slather on. I've switched to products made with with natural oils like shea, beeswax and lanolin. A few of my favourites are:
.
💋For glossy lips: @lanolips
💋For smooth lips: @burtsbeesuk
💋For colour: @absolution_cosmetics

Do you have any natural lip favourites? .

Alumna // Being interviewed today by @thecareerfarm in front of an audience of 100 students from @emlyonbschool -> where I was a student 20 years ago (!). We'll be talking how to stay gloriously well whilst working your butt off building a career in the fast lane. Which is basically what business school trains you to do. And thankfully more grad schools and businesses are realising that staying gloriously well means better brain power, sharper thinking and clearer decisions. Win win.

Le petit garden // We have the tiniest garden with herbs (always focused on edibles first of course......) and a teeny flower bed.
.
Maybe I should get a wheelbarrow like this one.... little wheelbarrow of loveliness. It's good for our energy and brainpower to spend time outdoors surrounded by greenery 🌱🌿☘

Strip it back // I'm a massive fan of paring back everything to the absolute essentials..... skincare included. I don't believe our skin needs loads of lotions and potions and thrives when we keep it simple. After sorting out my acne and eczema, my current skincare go-tos are:
.
♡ cleansing with jojoba oil and a muslin cloth
♡ moisturising then applying a natural sunblock during the day. I use @greenpeopleuk
♡ a facial massage oil at night
♡ a gentle exfoliation with @renskincare AHA toner a few times a week

Simple. Quick. Skin loves it. What are your simple skincare secrets?
