This is a photo of me enjoying the summer.
I on the other hand would experience watery, itchy eyes, a runny nose and constant sneezing. I tried all sorts of prescribed medication, but they never seem to help. Well that’s until recently.
A good friend of mine recommended bee pollen.
I personally noted after starting the tablets, that my typical symptoms seemed to disappear. I usually have to wear my sunglasses to protect my eyes from grass pollen. For the first time in years I could actually leave my glasses off and my eyes were not streaming. Even the sneezing stopped. I couldn’t believe it. Best of all, I didn’t feel as tired and drained. The symptoms often left me feeling exhausted.
So what is bee pollen?
Bee pollen is made by the honeybee and is also the food of young bees. It contains nearly all the nutrients that humans need and is rich in proteins and vitamins.
Bee pollen has numerous advantages but here are my favourite five benefits:-
If you want an allergy free summer, I would definitely recommend Bee Pollen.

I am taking care of myself today.
How often do you say this to yourself?
Do you actually do it?
Of course you don’t!
The reality is you lead such a busy life, just like everybody else!
You look after your family. You go to work and get stuck in the long queues for work. Then you work incredibly long hours often missing lunch breaks to keep up with deadlines.
You start snacking but the problem is you are eating things which aren’t particularly great for your diet. You’re eating high caloried snacks, drinking too much caffeine and sugar drinks.
You return home after fighting to get through the lengthy commuting queues. If you are lucky, you have a few minutes to be with your children before they go to bed. When they do go to bed, you might sit on the couch in front of the television and vegetate or you might be in a situation where you’ve had to bring work home just to keep on top of everything.
Then the whole crazy wheel of life starts again tomorrow. You just jump right back on, doing the same things you did the day before. But this cannot go on! You have to maintain your sanity!
You need to take care of yourself. Not just today but every day. Look after your health! Look after you! You forget that you are so important! If you keep up with this crazy routine, it’s going to take it’s toll! You need to be at your best. Just for you.
So I simply ask you to do one thing, even for one day. Take care of yourself.
Repeat to yourself, “I am taking care of myself today!” And actually do it! Go for a walk! Meditate! Pamper yourself! Breathe! These are all simple things but at least you are creating time for yourself to recover from the manic days of last week and mentally preparing yourself for whatever comes your way next week.
Take care of yourself!

You are tired of the constant advertising and requests to buy this outstanding product and buy that. Then along comes Mel’s Little Luxuries. Well, who or what is that? What do they want you to buy?
I started this business out of a hobby. With 3 gorgeous children and a full time job, I needed to find some precious time for myself. So I started soap making and realised that I enjoyed it. It was fun creating something from scratch, but you have total control over what ingredients go into the products.
This got me thinking. If you are like me, you probably get fed up with the number of products out there on the market and you have no idea what they contain. When you try reading the labels, you are simply blinded by science.
For me this is quite worrying because 2 of my little angels have eczema and the prescriptions they were getting, weren’t helping and sometimes seemed to cause more of an irritation.
Now I was involved in soap making, it made me realise that I could craft a gentle product which could help with soothing their skin. I therefore started to take things a little more seriously.
I went on a number of courses and out of that Mel’s Little Luxuries was born. I create natural handmade products such as body butters, lip balms, soaps and bath bombs. They make great gifts, pamper treats and the natural ingredients have been known to help with making the skin look vibrant, healthy and glowing.
So that’s what Mel’s Little Luxuries is all about.

The environment and changing seasons have a dramatic impact on your skin. The cold winter can leave your complexion looking drab, lifeless and tired.
The summer can impact on the skin with harmful rays from the sun resulting in fine lines and wrinkles.
The best skin to have is glowing, vibrant and youthful looking skin and this really is achievable. So here are 5 fab top tips to help you achieve the best looking skin ever: -
1.Exfoliate – Exfoliation gets rid of dull looking skin by sloughing off dead skin to reveal glowing skin. Up to the age of 30, skin renews itself every 28 days. After 30, this process slows down and dead skin simply piles up on top of the dull skin. Exfoliation helps to remove this skin. Be sure to use a gentle exfoliator. Abrasive exfoliators can damage the skin which goes against what you are trying to achieve.
2.Seal in the Moisture – It is so important to keep the skin hydrated and this can be achieved through using a good moisturiser both day and night. A day moisturiser should have SPF which protects against sun exposure which can lead to premature aging. Night creams are usually thicker as they work on the skin throughout the night with the aim of repairing the skin as you sleep.
3.Drink Enough Water – Water flushes out the toxins and hydrates the body which can only mean beautiful looking skin.
4.Eat Properly – Eating lots of fruit and vegetables and minimising salt and processed foods can only have a positive impact on your skin.
5.Get Enough Sleep – A lack of sleep can result in dark circles around the eyes and skin with a lack lustre appearance. Sleep allows the body to repair itself. Cells are repaired and your skin looks you youthful.
Following these simple top tips can lead to having an improved glowing and healthy appearance.
