St Patrick's Day Splash

Feeling good and looking good are one in the same thing – so on this St Patrick's Day I’m sharing with you a recipe that is as pure as it is nourishing and an ode to all things Irish! Ireland sings beauty to me - this is one of my favourite songs, sung by Christy Moore "Black is the colour of my true loves hair." Her land is as lush as her culture. So I thought what  would be a good way to symbolise this allure?
Lush fields and greener pastures await after this FF special!
I came up with a real Emerald!
Here’s a clue, green in colour, of course;-)
Soft and fresh.
Revitalising and healing?
A true treat for the senses . . .

Hmmmm??? What can it be?

One wondrous face mask!
Goodness gets going on your skin - Lovely!
Smooth this gorgeous gloop over your face and you’ll be treating your skin to a true St Patricks Day feast - and you'll feel great after.... the combination of yogurt, honey and avocado is deeply nourishing and anti-inflammatory - your skin will be feasting on minerals and vitamins galore - say goodbye to dry winter skin, it's time for Spring skin to buzz into today!

“St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic.” ~Adrienne Cook

I began writing this blog last year and the goal has always been to promote self-love and self-care, with a view to gradual growth as opposed to overnight perfection. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, perfection has no place here. Instead if you truly care about your body – eat well and make healthy choices - our bodies and minds are quick to say Thanks! We need to treat ourselves as a whole, choosing organic where possible and natural based skin products, nurturing that lovely glow from within is the way forward. Feel food and you'll feel good

On this lucky day I hope you get some pampering time – one of my favourite things about a face-mask is the ten minutes of tranquillity it almost guarantees, switch off your phones, play your favourite relaxing music and go wherever the moment takes you.

May you always have walls for the winds,
A roof for the rains,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire.

Wishing you a happy day today and always,

PREPARE your surroundings – switch off mobile and play relaxing music.
BLEND all ingredients in a blender or by hand, whichever you prefer.
