Being a member of the glo team and also to be present in celebrating the companies 10th birthday is fabulous! So when I was asked to contribute to this celebration with a blog focusing on my Top 10 Favourite Things, I was delighted and set about having a good old think as to what they are (it's harder than I anticipated)! Here are my faves below!

1. My Family and Friends

I’m lucky to have a lovely partner and family who are so kind and thoughtful and full of fun! I also have a fab set of friends who I have made some fantastic memories with throughout our years together and I’m looking forward to more great times in the...

Contrary to popular beliefs, a greasy spoon fry-up or hair of the dog the day after a big night can actually make you feel much worse on your sensitive stomach. Eating it the night before will help protect the lining of your tummy to prevent alcohol from being too easily absorbed. Ideal meal choice is a beef burger and chips!

Eek, I can't quite believe that glo is ten years old in October.

To celebrate our 10 years of business, we will be writing a series of blogs focusing on all things 10.  I...

As more people struggle with the daily grind,  anxiety, depression and stress, mindfulness meditation is packing a mean punch, especially for a practise adapted from a 2,400-year-old Buddhist tradition.  

A favourite practise for the Hollywood Glitterati (Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz and Clint Eastwood) meditation involves sitting still, focusing on your breath, noticing thoughts, feelings, sensations and surroundings and when the attention drifts, bringing it back to the breath – and it is actually surprisingly challenging.
