Stress Reduction Sprays

Today’s post is a little different as I don’t have beauty products to review.  Instead, I have three fantastic sprays which can help you to relax, destress, and sleep.  I often get stressed out before I even realise I’m agitated, going from zero to freaked in seconds and finding myself in a flap.  To combat the stress (and prevent myself behaving like a loon), I spray a little Mio Liquid Yoga Space Spray around and instantly feel better.  It’s a gorgeous blend of lavender and chamomile which calms, relaxes and soothes tattered nerves. To say a product is life changing can sound hyperbolic, but Susanne Kaufmann’s Leg Vein Cooling Spray could be classed as a miracle.  It stops my restless leg syndrome.  If you’re not familiar with this ailment, you are very lucky indeed.  It’s a twitchy, creepy, slightly sore and terribly uncomfortable sensation in the legs, usually at night.  When I feel it coming on, I spritz both legs and my feet with this miraculous spray and within about ten minutes, the symptoms are gone and I’m able to sleep. …


I do not enjoy marking time, but my brain seems to love it.  No matter how hard I try, I can’t get past ‘a year ago today’ or ‘this time last year,’ and it’s especially hard in June. So I’m off to stare at sand and sea for a couple of days.  It is true that salt water (in many forms) has a restorative effect.

Goodbye, Summer

I’ve packed away my sundresses and sandals as I’ve learned that having cold shoulders and frozen feet won’t bring Summer back.  Living in Scotland, one learns to appreciate a good Summer, and we definitely had one this year.  Now comes September with its golden light and cardigan temperatures.  There is something uniquely British about feeling happy to be safely back inside a jumper.

Burnt Out

It’s been a wild time at work.  The weeks leading up to Christmas are our busiest, and this year has proven to be no exception.  Fortunately, we have a fantastic team who are able to keep up beautifully.  I’m not one to wish time away, but I look forward to weekends these days.
