    Fresh is Best
    Posted on
    Just as fresh food is best for our bodies, so too are fresh ingredients best for our skin. But WHY? It is fairly well known that the fresher we eat our food (especially vitamin and mineral packed fruit & veg), the bigger the dose of those vits & minerals our bodies receive, and the better […]

    Terrific Tea Tree
    Posted on
    Tea Tree oil has long been used as a natural antiseptic, but is gathering interest due to some new research that highlights additional benefits.

    The Truth about Coconuts

    The Truth about Coconuts
    Posted on
    Coconut oil was once considered a baddie due to its high percentage of saturated fat. In recent years, evidence has emerged to show not only that saturated fats are not the baddie they once were thought to be, but the unique combination of fatty acids in coconut oil actually have powerful medicinal properties, due to […]

    Beauty in Vulnerability

    I don’t normally do book reviews…and I haven’t even finished this book, but I attended a conference and heard Brene Brown speak. Her TED    talks have aparently gone bananas all around the world. Worth a look. WHY HERE ON RUBIWOMEN? Brene talks about vulnerability….not the kind of vulnerability we typically think of (ie vulnerability […]

    Foot fetish
    Posted on
    OK, confession time. I do not have a foot fetish….but I am fascinated by feet (nice ones, that is). My own feet get little care in the usual course of life, but today I gave them a bit of loving. I booked in for an express pedicure, using a gift voucher from my lovely brother-in-law….2 […]
