There's a new Popcorn in town - Ikorn - King Of Korn

There's a new brand of Popcorn in town. Ikorn - The King of Korn

I love popcorn, always have. In the winter months, I tend to stay in a lot more and chill out at home. So I like Movie Nights, and of course Movie Nights must require popcorn. It's just something that we've always had. Whenever you go to the cinema, buying popcorn just goes part and parcel. So it's now formed a habit that you need something to munch on whilst watching a film. Thank goodness popcorn is actually a really healthy snack, much better than snacking on countless amounts of chocolates. So .... bring on the popcorn !!! However, some brands like to coat the popcorn in caramel or toffee or even chocolate to be more like a sweet treat, which is ok in moderation, but some brands are so sweet and artificial it ruins the fact that it is a fantastic low calorie snack. Ikorn want to remind everyone that popcorn is a healthy snack and they can provide one of the best option for you as they only use Coconut Oil to cook the Popcorn in.

Goodyfull Organic Superfoods Competition

There are many people that would like to try Superfoods and or high nutritional content foods, but have no idea what they are or how to use them. I know I was one of them....I'd never heard of chia seeds, acai berry, or goji berries a few years ago, and now they seem to be everywhere. What on earth do you do with them all?????? When you look at the aisles in the shops that are full of different seeds, powders, berries, it can be really quite overwhelming. Unless you know what to do with them it's very difficult trying to work out what is best for you, and then of course, you end up buying a massive bag of some seeds and then it ends up sitting in your cupboard until one day you may find a recipe that requires them.
Well this is where Goodyfull comes in. They are a company that sources high nutritional foods for you and then delivers them straight to your door, which is always a bonus. They are also packaged in a way that they will fit through your postbox too, so there is no waiting in for the postman.
They stock only organic products and of high quality.

To help you on your new healthy unknown journey, they have created the Goody Box especially for us. (Competition at the end !!!! )

First Impressions of Xero Lipo

I went for a consultation at West London Dermatology Centre where they have the Cosmeditech Xero Technology and I have say that I feel very positive about it. The West London Dermatology Centre deal with fat reduction, laser hair removal, hair transplants, skin peels, acne, skin rejuvenation. Last year they took on Xero Lipo which is a new fat reducing and skin tightening technology. I have explained this all in a previous post. I am very excited about this, as I really wanted to try the skin tightening Xero RF.

Working In The Hospitality Industry

The roots of hospitality go back to ancient times when a warm bed and meals were provided to those simply passing by. Though this may have started in a small room with only the necessities provided, it has now evolved into large-chain hotels with over 5000+ locations. Through the evolution of the hospitality industry, those looking for a vacation spot, business conference venue, or quick place to stop at on a road trip, are commonly looking for more than a simple meal and bed to sleep in; they are looking for an experience. In turn, people working in hospitality are in the business of making someone else’s day and making all feel welcome. According to the 2009 Trends and Statistics survey by the British Hospitality Association (BHA), around 1.9 million now work in the hospitality industry.

Let's try XeroLipo....

Whilst scrolling through Twitter one day, I saw an advert for a brand new fat reduction and skin tightening treatment, and my eyes lit up.....skin tightening....this is exactly what I wanted. So I started looking into XeroLipo which is a new generation of non-surgical treatments which can reduce fat cells and tighten skin.
I have spent the last year trying to get back to the body I had before children. Of course, most mothers find this really difficult, and well, some are just blessed and look amazing within weeks. I don't know how...they just seem to suddenly have smooth flat stomachs and are enjoying themselves on beaches in teeny tiny bikinis looking like Victoria Secret models......How is this possible? What is their secret, or are they just blessed?  Then you have the other side, where mothers will show off their wrinkly bellies after childbirth and are then extremely proud to show the world. I on the other hand avoided all photos, certainly didn't take selfies (still don't do it often to be fair). As huge as you get whilst being pregnant you go from having a beautiful tight bump to a deflated balloon stuck on your front. It was such a strange feeling of all of a sudden getting jelly belly...it was like having waves flowing over you. I couldn't wait for it to go, even if it did humour others.

CosmediTech - Xero Lipo - What is it ?

Cosmeditech has over 30 years of experience of the development of medical and cosmetic treatments. In only 2016 they released the latest in non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Which is where Xero Technology  comes from - Xero Lipo and Xero RF. It includes laser and radio-frequency products that can improve how your skin looks and feels. It can also sculpt your body to way you want it...
