Sleep Easy

I remember a time when as soon as my head hit the pillow I was sound asleep. Nothing would wake me. But lately it takes me ages to get to sleep, I toss and turn all night and wake up more tired then when I went to bed.

Getting the right amount of sleep helps you feel energized, refreshed, and ready to take on whatever the day throws at you. But it’s also vital for our general
health and well being. Studies have shown that not getting enough rest reduces your metabolism and causes weight gain, but its also said to be a linked with diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. So its crucial that we take action to get the rest we need to feel revitalized
and recharged every day. Here are a few useful tips that I’ve implemented to get a better night’s sleep.

Remove all the electronic equipmentfrom your bedroom. Yes, that includes the TV, the laptop, the IPad, the mobile and the game boy! All these stimulate the mind. Reclaimed the bedroom as sanctuary for sleeping by
removing distractions and keeping the room cool, dark and quiet.

Maintain a regular sleep cycle by going to bed and waking roughly the same time every day (even on weekends!).

Don’t eat before bed.  Your last meal should be 3 hours
before to give your body time to regulate the blood sugar levels.

Buy a good pillow that holds your neck in an appropriate position for extended periods. It allows for easier respiration and you won’t wake up with a stiff neck. This has been a winner for me.

Create a relaxing bedtime ritual such as taking a warm bath a few hours before going to bed or 10- 20 minutes of deep breathing exercises to relax the mind and body.

Here’s hoping for a better nights sleep tonight.

Great Gatsby

Great Gatsby

The roaring 20’s is back in fashion thanks to Baz
Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and it seem that it’s not only women
who are being inspired
by the glitz and glamour of the film either.

Men apparently are taking on the ultra-styled, slicked back hair that epitomises the 1920’s style, all thanks to the gorgeous Leo who plays Jay Gatsby.  Is it
just me or does Leo just gets better with age?

I’m happy that the 1920’s style has finally come back into fashion as its one that as versatile and flattering to all women.  I may not go all the way with the art-deco nail art or the fur stoles but I’ll be
throwing on a drop waist dress and a head scarf and maybe teaming it with some vintage inspired

Although, the film hasn’t had great reviews from the critics I’m still going to see it just for the sheer spectacle that only Baz can create.

Face Slimmer

Just Weird

Whilst doing some research on “At Home” beauty devices I came across this weird little item from Japan called the Face Slimmer.

Yes, the Face Slimmer is a simple solution to the timeless problem of how to give sagging facial skin and muscles that  much-needed daily

Just three minutes per day is all you need; pop in the item and then make mouth
movements. The makers recommend you say vowel sounds out loud over and over again,
producing regular and methodical exercises that will strength the twelve
facial expression muscles in a comprehensive way.

I don’t think I’ll be rushing out to purchase one not after what my partner
thought it was for.  I’ll leave that to your own imagination.

Face Slimmer

Wrinkle Compare

Not exactly sure how many wrinkles you have? Well, there’s an app for that. It’s called My Own App.

It uses facial recognition technology to track 50 points on a photo of your
face, and provide a clinical evaluation on the “major signs aging”. Once you upload your photo and it analyses it it will let you know the number of fine lines, deep set wrinkles, percentage of pigment and number of age spots. It saves them and then tracks them over time but it then goes just that one step further and compares the numbers to others in your age group.

It seemed like a good idea at the time but I was totally disheartened when it
revealed I had higher then average number of age spot. Then I realised it was counting my freckles as age spots. Phew!

Have a bit of fun with it but remember don’t take it too seriously.
