Combine ¼ cup brown sugar, two tablespoons coconut oil, two tablespoons honey and three drops of peppermint essential oil to create a scrub, scrub your feet for 5 minuets then put feet into warm basin for further 10 and use a puma stone to remove dead skin.

Achy feet ? 

The best essential oil for achy feet is lavender, this will work a treat within a foot basin or applied as a scrub, you can also get a lavender water spray to apply to the feet directly.

 

Use all of your scrubs along with a warm bowl of water to clean feet after you use your scrub, or have your feet in warm water basin or bowl for 20 mind before hand to soften skin! I hope these foot scrub recipes inspire you 😁

Mother’s day pampering at Blow LTD 💋💘🌸🌱www.blowltd.com

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, we might all be looking for ways to show our mums how much they mean to us. Whether that’s by taking them for Sunday brunch, buying them some lovely flowers and a card, or splashing out on a gift. There are loads of options for spoiling your mum and show her how grateful you are for those years of lost sleep and unconditional love. While smashed avo on toast and bouquets are a lovely sentiment, why not change it up this Mother’s Day by treating your mum to a little pampering instead.

The power of pampering
Many of us lead busy lives with lots of different commitments and responsibilities, which can often include looking after other people. But you shouldn’t always feel that you have to sacrifice your own needs in order to care for others. Taking time out for yourself helps you remember that your needs are as important as those of others. In fact, caregivers who look after themselves will feel happier and be less stressed, meaning that they can give better care to their loved ones. Whether it’s a weekly bath with a glass of wine, or regularly treating yourself to one of your favourite beauty treatments, there are plenty of ways to fit some pampering into your life.

We all know the rejuvenating powers of a little bit of TLC. While regular self-care makes us feel great, fitting in time for a spot of pampering is actually a fantastic way to help manage everyday stress. When left unchecked, even low-level stress and tension can negatively affect your health. Stress can make you more prone to certain diseases and weaken your immune system. By actively reducing your stress levels, you can prevent everyday annoyances wreaking havoc to your body in the long term.

More than any of us, mums are often in need of some unwinding and pampering. After all, parenthood is one the hardest, most underpaid jobs in the world that comes with no training or instruction manual. The fact you are here today wouldn’t be possible without your mother (thanks mum!). Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spoil your mama in return for all that she has done for you, and maybe steal the spot as the favourite child at the same time. If you are looking for a thoughtful way to treat your mum, then booking her a professional beauty treatment may be the answer. Let everyone else buy their mothers flowers and wine, while you do something a little bit different to show your mum how much you love her.

And relax …

Nothing beats a soothing massage or facial to help your muscles relax (including the ones in your face). Whether it’s helping to unwind those tight muscles from carrying growing children here, there and everywhere, or helping to relieve persistent niggles like back tension. A massage can be a great way to let your mum unwind as she can sit back, relax, and enjoy being pampered. A professional facial is a fantastic option too, as this can help your mum’s skin feel energised and hydrated.
Get dolled up

If you think a massage or a facial is not your mum’s thing, services like makeovers or hair styling are viable alternatives. Or a sleek new manicure for some Instagram-worthy nails would also go down really well. You could even book yourself a treatment at the same time as your mum. That way, you could both feel extra glamorous after a professional makeover, blow dry or nail treatment before heading out for a celebratory Mother’s Day drink (or two). Giving never felt so good!

Helping busy working mums is at the heart of what blow LTD, the beauty on-demand app, do. Their mobile beauty treatments let women fit in their beauty maintenance, regardless of how busy their schedules get, and their expert beauty pros can come to your home, ready to treat you and your mum to some much-needed TLC at a time that suits you. With combo treatments and group bookings available, you are bound to find a service that your mum (and you) will love.

If you think your mum deserves some beauty pampering this Mother’s Day, head over to blow LTD to find out more about our professional and affordable mobile beauty treatments.

Check out my other post on why we get grey hair here just incase it’s not genetic or stress induced, you may have an undiagnosed disorder!

Follow this advice below if you want to reverse our already greying hair or prevent grey hair from occurring.

Stop smoking !!

Eat iron rich foods, Spinach, kidney beans, potatoes, lentils, raisins.

Eat copoer rich foods ! Copper is needed for certain essential enzymes, including tyrosinase, which is crucial for the production of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin and hair its color. The 2012 study in “Biological Trace Element Research” also found a significant link between low copper levels and prematurely gray hair.

Three of the best supplements for grey reversing :

  • B-12
  • Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) (from folic acid)
  • Copper

Sick of putting chemicals and fake lashes on ? Well this post is for you… learn about what you can apply to your eyelashes to help them grow. All 100 percent natural 😁 Green beauty all the way !!!! 

Castor oil and olive oil work wonders together, use a mascara wand to apply this every morning for stronger thicker lashes 💋

Jojoba oil Contains, Vitamin E, Vitamin B complex, silicon, chromium, copper and zinc. It also contains beneficial fatty acids that moisturize and keep lashes soft and nourished. Simply apply with a mascara wand daily.

Eating more fruits and vegetables can also enhance eyelash growth. It’s true if you eat better you look better 😂😁 So start improving your diet !

Vitamin C protects eyelashes from infections that would inhibit hair growth.  It also hydrates lashes, accelerates healing, repairs follicle damage, lessens inflammation, and lowers the risk of eyelash breakage.

Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruit, cranberries, strawberries, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, pineapples, tomatoes and kale.

Coconut oil is packed full of fatty acids and nutrition, apply virgin coconut oil to your lashes to prevent eyelash loss. It is also good for killing bacteria on the eyelashes and any dryness around your eyes.

You can also mix up Jojoba with Olive oil, or Coconut with Castor to create new blends, you can buy packs of cheap mascara wands on eBay and also little containers to keep your serum in 💋

In the run up to Christmas we may be thinking about having a get togethers with friends and family, maybe a fun night in or going out. Some of us might even throw a massive Christmas party 😀 I have made a list of some cool ideas to get your imagination flowing. Whatever you decide to do I hope you have fun ! Merry Christmas guys 🎉🎄

A Christmas’s pampering party at home 😍💅💖

Invite your friends over for a night of complete pampering such as face masks, nail painting etc. A bit of champagne and watch a movie in your Xmas pj’s. You can even hire out some beauty therapists or mobile hairdressers to come along for an hour to do hair and fake tans!  Get your friend to bring over food and chocolates to share or all chip in for a big takeaway then laugh the night away.

Gingerbread house competition 😂🎁

Get a whole load of Gingerbread house making kits from eBay or the high street and throw a Gingerbread house making party ! This one is perfect for kids to get involved too, so invite your friends round and tell them to bring the kids. I have done this as a child and it was amazing, I loved it and was kept busy for hours 😂 So if you want some peace from the kids leave them to it! Also with any competition there has to be a prize !

Night out at a karaoke bar 😂🌹🎄

Sing the night away with all your favourite Christmas songs and have a laugh. Get dressed up in matching outfits and get out the camera to make some christmas memories 📷

Night out at the casino 😯💵🎉

Maybe not the most responsible night out at Christmas time as we need our money for presents but what can beat a night filled with laughs and gambling ? Get the girls together and head to your nearest casino and go crazy!  Christmas is only once a year after all 😂

Christmas movie marathon 🎬📺😂

Get out the beanbags and the food and watch all the old Christmas films together. Nice and cosy !

Sandy Davidson

7c280185f6f5ed6a8a46c92a18816a7e.jpg

On 23 April 1976, Sandy Davidson was in his garden with his little sister Donna playing with their dog. They were being looked after by their grandparents, who had gone inside the house at the time. The gate flew open and their dog ran out. Sandy ran out trying to catch him. His sister Donna says that all she can remember was Sandy motioning for her to go too but she refused and went into the house to tell their grandparents.

Work ground to a halt on the new building estate nearby to search for Sandy but nobody has seen him since.

The most believed scenario is that there was a man delivering leaflets around the time of Sandy’s disappearance and that he could have opened the gate and taken Sandy. Sandy’s mother Margaret and father Phillip believe that it was a lonely man wanting a son.

Another theory is that he ran down to the river five minutes away and followed the dog in, and subsequently drowned.

Lisa Irwin

lisa-progression-2.jpg

Lisa irwin went missing from her home in kansas while her mother slept. Her father returned home from work to discover the front door opened, he immediately checked on his partner and baby. Baby lisa was not in her crib! A window was open and a few lights were on. Lists mother says she put lisa to bed and everyone was closed locked and lights off. There were also items stolen such as cellphones.

Initially the police believed lisas mother had done something to her baby or family members were involved in her disappearance somehow. Lisas parents had a charge on there stolen credit card for a fake birth certificate on the Dark Web which they claim they did not place. Lisas parents claim they have nothing to do with their missing daughters disappearance and believe in Thierry heart she is alive. A few people reported seeing a man on the day lisa went missing carrying a baby and other leads. Lisas parents do not like they way the case has been handled with many missed opportunities for investigation.

Charlene Downes

uk04l011

Charlene Downes (born c. 1989) disappeared on 1 November 2003, when she was 14, from her home town of Blackpool, a seaside town in north-west England. She was last seen in an area of the town centre that contained several takeaway and fast-food units. Lancashire Constabulary, the police force investigating her disappearance, believe that she was murdered within hours of the last sighting.[2]

The trials brought to light what Julie Bindeldescribed in The Guardian as “endemic child sexual abuse and prostitution” in the town.[4] The police believe that, for a protracted period before her disappearance, Downes had been the victim of child sexual abuse at the hands of one or more men.[4][5] They interviewed 3,000 people and found that she and other girls in the area had been “swapping sex for food, cigarettes and affection”,[4] a form of child sexual exploitation known as localised grooming. It is thought that 60 local girls may have been targeted.[6]Two men were tried in May 2007—one for Downes’ murder, the other for helping to dispose of her body—but the jury failed to reach a verdict. A re-trial was scheduled, but in April 2008 the accused were released because of concerns about the evidence compiled by Lancashire Constabulary.[3]

On 1 August 2017, a 51-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murdering Downes and was released two days later. A £100,000 reward remains on offer for information leading to the conviction of her killer(s) or the recovery of her body.

Charlene Downes is presumed dead although there is no evidence that she is dead.

If you believe you are a missing person or are illegally adopted  :

Do not be scared, take a breath and think things through. Does your parents have baby images of you ? Do you have information on where your parents supposedly adopted you ? Does it not add up !

Nowadays with technology there are easy ways of finding out about your true origins, such as dna kits!  You can easily take one these behind your families back and not inform them of you doing so. Many of these companies take a few weeks to give you your results and they also give you an online profile to link you to distant cousins. Some people discover that they have sisters they didn’t know about or a heritage from an country they never visited.

Five of the most popular DNA test kits out there: AncestryDNA23andMe, MyHeritage, Living DNA, and Family Tree DNA 

 

 

 

Give powerfull INVISIBLE gifts this Holiday Season 🎁💋❤

Why not do something a little different this year ? Such as giving gifts that don’t cost anything like time, patience and compliments ? 

kira-auf-der-heide-475623-unsplash

I had this idea for this post a I was observing  everyone getting ready for Christmas running about crazy trying to get things sorted, it can very stressful and we can forget about ourselfs and others needs!

In the run up to Christmas day we can hand out more compliments that will brighten someone’s day such as complimenting a stranger on a lovely outfit, telling a work colleague they are doing a great job and you noticed how hard they worked. Also thanking friends and family who make us a meal by saying it was very nice and they are a great cook! So many times we actually think these things but don’t have the guts to say it out loud.

Another thing we can do is give our time to friends or family, such as going round and visiting and having a good conversation. Maybe even a phone call to an old friend or taking the time to deliver a newspaper or milk to an elderly neighbour. Taking a little bit of time just to talk to someone can go a long way. Truth is more people are lonely than ever I’m today’s technology world.

Having more patience with your self and others. This one is a gift to yourself as it will reduce stress, sometimes we worry and lose our patience with our self’s and others toon easily.  Tale a breath and say to yourself “is it worth it ?” Also don’t beat yourself, for up this Christmas if you get things wrong, Christmas isn’t going to be perfect for everyone.

Some times the best gifts are the cheapest, inexpensive free ones ! But in the end you realise YOU are the best gift! You are not really invisible and others aren’t either so stop acting like they are and give the gift of love, patience, time and compliments ❤🎁

Pro Tips & Tricks to improve your instagram profile😜

elijah-o-donnell-663102-unsplash.jpg

How to disable active now 

Instagram now allows you to see when your friends are online via your DMs and also when they were last online, if you like your privacy you can disable this feature. All you need to is go to Profile -> Settings -> Activity Status and disable it. However, remember if you don’t want others to see your activity status and disable this option, you also won’t be able to see anyone else’s activity status.

Don’t buy fake followers 

There are so many ways to buy fake followers for your social media and instagram users do it all the time, even celebrities do it although they already have millions of followers. They want a larger following than competitors. Don’t fall into this trap, most fake followers that are bought are deactivated within weeks. Be who you are and let people follow you because they like you. A small loyal following is worth more than thousands who don’t even know you.

Don’t put up with abuse, stalking or sexual messages at all!

Do not for one second put up with rubbish like this, delete and block instantly. Do not give people like this the time of day. They are just attention seekers. You are worthy of healthy online friendships and shouldn’t let the few ruin it for the many.

See how many people have viewed your Story

Are you ever curious about who has watched your Stories? Did you know Instagram offers a simple way to view this info?

While in your Story, simply swipe up to reveal how many people have viewed your Story. You can see the profiles of exactly who viewed it.

Boost old posts to get more followers and likes 

Have some old posts that have stopped getting likes? simply go to edit and delete your current hash tags and info for the picture and then update that picture with a new description and new hash tags.  It will then be visible at the top of new hash tag searches and get more exposure.

See the Posts Your Friends Recently Liked or Commented On

To do that, click the heart icon at the bottom of the home screen — the first thing that should appear is a list of likes and comments on your photos. Choose the tab near the top that says “Following,” and you can see the activity of users you follow. You can see the recent likes and follows/comments.

This is often how girlfriends find out about their other half cheating they check this to see any comments on other girls pictures or too many suspicious likes on other girls pictures, guys are stupid  (don’t tell them this if they don’t know ) and if your a guy out there and your thinking “#$@#$” I’ll just be careful now. .. no ugh ugh, woman are like the cia and they already know everything. They probably know more about your new girl than you do… just saying.

Make use of all the available filters 

So many people don’t make use of all the filters instagram has to offer. To view the full list of filters go to filter while editing a picture and go along to the very end of your filters and you will see a square box that says manage that should take you to full list that you can reorder.

My experience

Lotil can be used on all areas of the body, I tried Lotil first on my face as it says it’s good for eczema and my checks have been flaring up red and blotchy for weeks. I was really impressed by how fast the cream tried on my skin and the lovely silky smooth results. I would give this product a 10/10 👍
