The Body Shop: gift bag

image

I went to The Body Shop for a special event and received a gift bag worth £40, they had complimentary drinks and canapé style food which was obviously my favourite 🙂 but also the staff were on hand to give skincare advice and explain more about the products. People were getting massages too! There was a presentation mainly hosted by dhdn iebdui which was so informative and gave a better insight into the type of products The Body Shop produce. I’m still interested in natural/organic items which is why I like this particular store. One thing I know for sure is that they do care about where their ingredients come from.

You did have to spend £15 or more to receive the goody bag, my favourites are:

I was definitely grateful for the free items however if I got the chance to make any changes 😉 it would have been nice if the Honey Bronze was available in different shades that would suit my skin likewise with the Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick

Overall it was a great evening and I definitely enjoyed myself.

The Truth…

About Cancer.

You known when you watch something and you feel totally inspired to change the world?? That’s how I felt after watching The Truth About Cancer!! I really looked forward to the 9 docu-series every day and set time aside to watch the video’s and learn so much about our bodies that no one else would ever dare teach us. The episodes really express hope that anything is possible.

It was interesting to listen to the ‘survivor’ stories and get more of an insight into the pharmaceutical industry. Doctors are not taught about nutrition and only know to advise/cure someone with medicinal items like drugs and pills, to be honest it is not fault because it’s how they have been educated and they don’t know better. It’s crazy how the world is when you think about it, you try to live a healthier lifestyle but them something else comes along that causes your body harm.

I know that some people are skeptical to trying new things but I would definitely recommend buying or watching these videos because you will be aware of all the possibilities of curing cancer and you will really appreciate the commitment of everyone who took part. I realise I should have posted this earlier but do check out their website 🙂 https://thetruthaboutcancer.com

I do enjoy watching documentaries these days because I am constantly learning new things and expanding my brain to lots of things I never new existed, it’s such a great feeling when you watch something and actually want to make positive changes in the world and that’s why I’m sharing it with you.

Why you should start journaling

It’s a great way to recollect your thoughts and feelings throughout the day, journaling allows you to read your thoughts back at a later date and understand how you felt at different moments in your life. You can gain confidence within yourself and also trust that when looking back on your words you’ll have achieved a lot and grown into a better person.

It doesn’t have to be in anything fancy just a simple notebook and pen will do.

‘You should write your feelings down when your feeling emotional to capture that particular moment and keep it in your mind to treasure so that when you read over it you can remember exactly how you felt’
