La Mer Moisturising Cream

I have been fortunate enough as a beauty stylist to try out some amazing products over the two years.  And one of my very favourite products has to be La Mer.

This product was developed many years ago by a scientist who burned himself doing one of his experiments, and he developed La Mer to heal his burns and scars with amazing results.

Its not just an anti ageing product , it is a product that has incredible healing properties due to the organically harvested kelp. They call this the miracle broth – this is the ingredient that goes into the Créme de la Mer.

It is not a product that is considered affordable.  But having said that, with this product – across all of its product range – less is more. You really don’t need to use very much for great results.  It is quite simply, superb.


I can honestly say that it leaves your skin feeling smooth and nourished. You can notice the change.

But what is more incredible,  is that over time it actually heals the skin. So those fine lines and open pores become considerably less.  When you wake up in the morning your skin looks dewey and fresh. Your skin will feel soft to the touch and a big bonus is the smell. It smells like luxury and it feels like luxury.  If you have quite problematic skin- La Mer is the answer. So this range is good for most skin types.  And again, this product was originally made to heal a very damaged skin. But what followed was not only the benefits of healing , but an anti-ageing second to none.

Its a wonderful product and it is well worth the money you pay for it.

If you want to invest in your skin. I would invest in La Mer.

Stopping Smoking – Max Kirsten

It was  a little over two years ago that I quit smoking.  I never thought  I would be able to quit! I smoked a pack a day! I never was one to smoke a whole cigarette, but I still went through a pack a day.




I was ready to leave the UK after a hellish journey in my life and I was headed to Australia.  I had wanted to stop smoking for a long time, but I also knew how expensive smoking was in Australia and that I couldn’t purchase my favoured brand.  They were an organic brand from the states, and I loved my cigarettes. I really did. They were my best buddies and constant companions.  In Holland they were affordable and in Spain they were even cheaper if I managed to get hold of some on holidays.  I thought I would always be addicted to my cigarettes and deep down often prayed that I could one day be strong enough to quit.  They were there for me when I was having fun, when times were good and when times were bad.


I did my research and found a highly capable man who had cured a few celebrity clients that had advocated his success and all that jazz. I chose  Max Kirsten.




I felt exactly the same as Ewan McGregor describes in this video – he went to Max Kirsten to have hypnotherapy.  So that is what I decided I would do. I wanted to go to someone who I knew would be able to deliver the goods.  Obviously he doesn’t only help with quitting smoking. There are a large number of hypnotherapy treatments he offers.

I clearly remember walking around the corner from Harrods about to have my last cigarette outside his front door just after 2pm in the afternoon.  I emerged from this fascinating man’s office after spending over 3 hours being treated my him. He was warm, friendly, funny and above all – very capable.  The hypnotherapy he gave me was tailored for me. Using situations and circumstances to assist me to cope with the drastic measure I was taking to improve my life.  I was ready to let go of everything at the time.  Toxic “friends”, toxic habits, toxic circumstances.  You name it. It was all going! And gone it was.




I also had quit in what was possibly one of the most hideously stressful times I could clearly EVER recall. Shortly after that  I had a cough for  two months solid. I could not ever talk without barking and spluttering.  I was detoxing my lungs in a epic way. Detoxing not just the tar and nicotine on my lungs but the whole situation I was emerging from. It was a very spiritual process for me. I was letting go of so much more than cigarettes.  And two years later –  I’m still smoke free.   I gained some weight, which I am still in the process of shedding.  But I’m on the road to perfect health and happiness.  I always had excellent skin, and I now maintain that. My skin has never looked better.  I am able to power walk up hills in no time at all. And my lung capacity has increased measurably.  I am incredibly blessed to be as fit and healthy as I am. I also feel very blessed to have quit when I did and with Max Kirsten. I certainly chose the best for myself.

And I will end my blog off today with this.

If I can stop smoking – Anyone can stop smoking! And that is a fact.
