Who knew, but the tiny little Blueberry is capable from preventing all sorts of diseases and ailments as well as being a delicious part of a balanced diet.
Firstly, it helps to boost your immune system but carrying large amounts of vitamin C. Other nutrients they carry are manganese, vitamin A, b-complex, copper, selenium, zinc and iron all of which help to tackle the common cold, flu and other infections.
Blueberries contain antioxidants which can help prevent elderly diseases such as cataracts, Alzheimers and glaucoma.
The berries can also reduce risk of the ‘C’ word. Yes Cancer is an awful disease but these tiny fruits do their best to help you avoid getting Cancer by carrying an anti oxidant called Anthocyanin.
The high concentration of Anthocyanosides have shown to help slow deterioration of vision.
Blueberries can help improve digestion and prevent constipation.
Finally, blueberries contain an extremely low percentage of sugar, a lot lower than some other fruits which means they taste scrummy but at only approximately 80 calories per cup full they are a healthy addition to a balanced diet.
All in all the Blueberry is a superfood. Its low in fat and can prevent some really bad body nasties, so make room in your diet for the tiny berry that can do oh so much :D
Contrary to popular belief, the secret to healthy hair is not related to the shampoo you use but the food you eat.
Secret 1: Water
Yes we know you have heard it before but we’re telling you again. Water makes up a quarter of the contents of our hair and our bodies need a regular intake, 8-10 glasses a day to be precise. Do not wait until you are already thirsty as this means you are already starting to dehydrate. Healthy hair is hydrated hair.
Secret 2: Protein
Protein which is found in such foods as cheese, fish, milk, meat and cereals is essential for healthy hair. Protein actually strengthens the hair shaft itself preventing splitting and snapping.
Secret 3: Minerals
Iron helps to improve the oxygen supply to your hair. Lack of Oxygen to the hair can cause brittleness throughout the length of your hair which is never good. Iron can be found in red meat and dark green vegetables. I bet a sunday roast is looking good about now :)
Copper in your diet can help with your hair colour. That’s right, no more need for high lights and low lights. Try shellfish, liver, fresh veg, nuts and seeds.
Secret 4: Vitamins
Vitamin A helps you to get a great scalp. Veggies like carrots are best.
Vitamin B & C helps good blood circulation which makes for healthy strong hair and no split ends. Foods such as eggs, milk, bread and fruit & veg are best.
Vitamin E which is found in brown rice, wheat and leafy greens is what gives your hair shine.
We hope these nutritional tips help your hair to look its best and you to feel fabulous.
We all know honey is yummy on toast, but did you know our sweet treat is also well known for its medicinal qualities.
Honey can be used as an antiseptic for minor burns, cuts and wounds. Its ability to reduce inflammation and promote healing is well known. Search especially for Manuka honey native to New Zealand as it can be exposed to heat and light and can even be diluted and it won’t lose its healing qualities.
A little tip for all you DIY beauty babes is a honey and oat anti acne scrub. We know it sounds delicious and too good to be true. The oats gently exfoliate skin and the honey is a natural moisturiser. Its the perfect pass time for a relaxing evening in with the girls. Click here to find out all the sticky details.

When your children hand you shedded snakeskin, why not give yourself a snakeskin manicure! That’s what happened to 40-year-old nail technician Terri Silacci who “was dying to figure out a way to match her nails with the tote.” And a new manicure craze was born, according to the NY Post. She told the paper, “It wasn’t until my kids brought [the shedded skin of a 4-foot python] home that I thought, ‘That’s it. I’m going to do it with real snakeskin.’”
Currently four salons in Manhattan offer the snakeskin manicure, “in which hand-cut swatches of snakeskin are applied to the nail bed and sealed between a coat of instant-drying Bio Sculpture Gel base color and a clear top layer.: It costs up to $550 for a mani/pedi combo of this kind—and hundreds of New York women have already paid that kind of cash to get it done.
We’ve been using these luxe face oils from Anne Semonin for a while now, and our glowing skin is testament to their efficiency. So we will be making our way down to Liberty next week, where the brand will be holding a beauty event from 5th to 12th June with made-to-measure bespoke facials. After an in-depth diagnosis, your therapist will tailor-make a treatment to suit the needs of both your skin and your lifestyle, and then prescribe you with the right custom-blend products so that you can keep up the good work afterwards.
You don’t have to go to London to get this treatment, all Anne Semonin products are also available at your very own Serenity in the City.
