Feeling Frazzled? Add These Stress Busting Foods to Your Shopping List Today.

With increasing pressures at work and at home, it is easy to find yourself feeling stressed out and feeling frazzled; with the weight of the world on your shoulders. In actual fact, that feeling of stress is your body preparing yourself to run away from or fight a threat – a response that served our distant ancestors very well.

How Can You Save on Beauty Products?

Some of us do admit it, while others are very reluctant – the fact that beauty products consume large portions of our budget on a monthly basis. We buy shower gels and shampoos, creams and lotions, masks and treatments, foundations, lipsticks, mascaras and so much more in an effort to look better and feel better about out appearance.

Giving Up Smoking with Electronic Cigarettes

This is mainly due to the great NHS campaign, Stoptober, which gives people the incentive to quit and the support that they need. Another reason why more and more people are able to make this brave attempt, is thanks to the invention of the e-cigarette, which has been around for longer than many might think.
