charity meal being hosted at V&H cafe to raise finds for those in desperate need of aid in Kerela, which has been hit by the worst flooding and storm event in 100 years.
Not only is Kanthi bringing you fantastic cuisine but all proceeds are being donated to charity. V&H are delighted to support this desperate cause. #kerela #kerelafloods #indiancuisine
I’d dreamed of a wild swim in the Cuckmere Meanders for years. Clear salt water, brilliant blue skies, lush green Sussex meadows and magnificent, aching silence. The ‘world’s wisest woman’ psychologist Dorothy Rowe once said, ‘Depression is the gap between reality and expectation.’ My gap was typically sizeable this time. Because when I got to the meanders, yes it was dazzlingly beautiful, the sky was azure blue and the grass emerald green. Unfortunately the other two hundred or so day trippers thought so too. I’d have been the only person swimming and it would have been most amusing to see me wallowing like a stuck hippo in six inches of chalky stagnant water flavoured with sheep droppings. Eject fantasy. Mouth set grimly as I tackle the washing up. Wait for next ridiculous fantasy to come along #cuckmeremeanders #cuckmerehaven #cuckmere #cuckmerevalley #cuckmereriver #cuckmerehaven #sussex #sussexdowns #wildswimming #wildswim #england #riverswimming

When motivation drops...
Do you ever feel motivated to make healthy changes, and then find stress, tiredness, or a social event completely knocks you off track?
Motivation is a flaky little bugger that isn't always there when you need it. A big key to success is continuing to take positive action until it comes back. .
Here are some techniques to help you do that:
. 🥘 If you're tired or stressed, minimise your decisions. Go for easy high protein meal options that you enjoy (loving slow cooker meals again right now). Have the foods you need in stock and healthy low calorie snacks available. .
🍫 Struggling with snacking on unhealthy options? Consider removing them from the house for the time being. Make it easier for yourself to get back to healthier choices by not having to resist what's in the cupboards. . .
🙏 Make a list of things you can do to feel good that don't involve food or drink - walks in nature, a quick run, deep breathing, a bath, cup of your favourite tea, meditation and a spot yoga are all great options. . .
🌳 Have favourite places you really enjoy walking, that make you feel great - for me finding this steam train always makes me smile 🚂 . .
💪 Keep hold of a few inspiring weight loss stories and articles to read to remind you it requires effort and determination but it's worth it. Quotes, inspirational videos on YouTube and photos of people you admire can help a lot too. . .
🏖 Have a picture of the holiday destination you're next going to visit where you want to feel at your best by the pool or the beach. . .
🤩 Think about the positives of what you're working towards - how will the changes you're making benefit your health, confidence, relationships and life in general? . .
👎 Think about the negatives you're moving away from - what are you current unhealthy habits costing you in terms of your health, confidence, relationships and ability to be your best?
Remember every positive action is a WIN, and you don't always have to feel motivated. Build the habit of taking action anyway. Be determined to make it work.
Action leads to results, and THAT will get you motivated to keep going 👊

Completed brows after their final top up session ✨
I’ve missed doing lips! 😍 These will fade and soften to enhance the natural lip line and leaves a blush of colour 🍭
One thing I have learnt from semi permanent makeup is that we all like very different things! What we think looks nice may not be what someone else would prefer. We are like snowflakes, all different in our own beautiful way! 🦄❄️ I get to create what YOU want and what YOU are happy with. Some of you like bold brows, thin brows, dark lips, heavy eyeliner etc - and that’s okay - there is no right or wrong way, it’s whatever is right for YOU 💕
Don’t let others define you - or your eyebrows! ✨
A light, soft, fluffy hairstroke brow for this lovely lady. These will soften and fade by 50-70% so for those of you that prefer a natural brow this option is perfect for you 🍂
Back today doing some lovely brows!
Hairstroke top up over old pigment ☺️
Yesterday’s hairstroke brows created using a digital machine ✍️
Loved this transformation today ✨
These brows were previously microbladed around a year ago. We decided to go darker in colour, thicker and evened out the symmetry ☺️✨ After multiple sessions of micrpigmentation your hair strokes will eventually blend into a powder brow as more and more pigment is implanted into the skin over time.
Are you worried about patchy, scabby brows when healing? 😱
These brows are 8 days old.
There is some makeup on the tail which makes them look grey but overall they are healing perfectly!
Over the next few weeks the skin will regenerate and reveal much softer, lighter hairstrokes 🍃
More big beautiful brows today! ✨ Lots of brows this week and I’ve loved all the transformations 😍
Big bold brows today! 🌰
These hairstrokes are dark and dense because of the colour choice and thickness of the brow shape. In 4-6weeks they will soften, fade and shrink ☺️
✨🍂 finished hairstroke brows 🍂✨
Brow transformation! ✨ A new set of semi permanent brows to frame those gorgeous brown eyes 🍂🌰
Looking back at all of these beautiful lips 😍 New colours will be coming soon...✨
