Location, location, location

Recently I was on the beach with my friend. The beautiful town of Sidmouth.  She mentioned how much she loves the seaside.  Previously she lived in London and now she lives in the countryside.download  I said my husband has always said that he would like to retire to the seaside.  I am not sure where else I would like to live.  I am really happy where we live now in the suburbs of London.
But do I want to change?  My friend made the move from city to country and although it was hard to start a new life, she is so happy and settled.

Could I live somewhere else? I really enjoy having so many amenities on my doorstep. I am less than 3 minutes walk to buy milk.  We have so many transport links and things to do and see.  In the country or by the sea you have fresh air, and landscapes.  There are less people but you nearly always need a car to get about.  It is certainly food for thought.

We sat on the beach just relaxing and chatting, while our children played.  It’s moments like this that life feels good and I know how lucky I am that I can take time out with my children and friends to escape to different places.

The weather was beautiful, not a cloud in the sky, in fact it was too beautiful as I got sun burnt!  I wasn’t impressed with myself as I try to be careful being so fair-skinned.  Luckily I have Collagen and Kelp Fondant which is amazing at calming the skin.  I popped it into the fridge for a bit and it felt so amazing on my burnt skin.  It really calmed it down.  On my forehead, I have made sure I use my Vitality C Concentrate to boost the collagen levels and hopefully repair the damage.  Sun burn is not clever nor fun and I am making a vow that I will do everything I can to avoid any further sunburn.

Party party party

After a very busy weekend, mostly ferrying my children here there and everywhere,  I am pleased to be sitting on the sofa, enjoying a very cold Corona, reflecting on my week. Does anyone else think their children have a better social life than them?!

One of the perks of my Acti-Labs business (Acti-Beauty Claire) is I get to host parties.  This week I joined forces with another Mum, from school.  Anna sells Jamberry Nail Wraps. Both are products which are great for busy people who don’t have much time but still want to take any spare minutes to look and feel good.

However, before the party I needed to prepare.  Cue massive cleaning frenzy.  Are you like me? Maintaining a fairly tidy house but kicking it up a gear when you know you have people coming over? I actually had to write a plan of everything I needed to do so I didn’t forget anything!!

Then it was party time.  I can have moments where I am quite shy. Pip.jpgHowever, start me talking about my Acti-Labs products and I forget to by shy and I’m chatting away.  I love demonstrating how fantastic the products are and at affordable prices.
Every party I do is a little bit different – which adds to the fun.  At this one, the theme was pamper, every guest got a face mask a choice of the New Skin Mask or the Vesuvio Mask.  Seeing the look on people’s faces when they feel their skin after their treatment gives me such a buzz.  Their comments telling me their skin feels so soft, looks clearer and feels cleaner is brilliant.

At the end of the night, I felt shattered but happy.  It’s times like this that I know I made the right decision to join Acti-Labs.
