A little Pink Heart Lemonade

by Clare Neill,

With all the snow this weekend my plans went out the window and instead I spent a relaxing weekend indoors. I decided to have a quick look at our wedding photos from last August and I came across a photo of our Pink Heart Lemonade which I created with our kitchen manager especially for our day. It was a surprise to everyone - even Christina!


Easy ways to live consciously

by Christina Agnew, , link

Our good friend Nahid de Belgeonne, Director and Founder of Good Vibes, is the person to go to when your soul is feeling a bit frazzled. Specialising in restorative yoga, Good Vibes offers Glow Yoga and Pilates classes in Europe’s first infra red heated studio.

We asked Nahid to help us start 2013 the way we mean to go on. So here are her easy tips for living consciously:

  • Engage fully in all you do. Don’t answer your phone or text while you are talking to someone - it prevents you from being fully engaged with them. Do one thing at a time and do it well; multi-tasking means setting yourself for frustration. 
  • Include mindful disciplines into your wellbeing routine, from restorative yoga to qi gong or simply sitting to meditate for a few minutes a day. Taking the time out to rest your mind and body will ensure that you are a lot more productive in your life.
  • Be an active citizen. If YOU don’t make a difference, who will? People around the world are dying for democracy. Flex your campaigning and voting muscle.
  • Stop consuming as an automatic response to what life throws at you. Instead invest in experiences and activities that nourish you.

If you need some extra help to de-stress and focus on the present, try the Yin and Yang Yoga or Glow Yoga Bliss, both by candlelight, at Good Vibes.
