I’M OKAY!

I used to hate winter. It is hardly surprising –  I usually spent most of the season in bed with my nose stuffed with tissues and my head heavy like lead. Cold air and low temperatures don’t agree with me. However, my immune system has improved considerably due to cold showers, ice massaging and herbal … [Read more…]

IT’S ALL FENUGREEK TO ME

Have you ever heard of a herb called fenugreek? No? Me neither. And I’m not surprised. It is used as a spice in an Indian or Turkish cuisine. But it’s flavour and taste interest me the least. Fenugreek is a powerful ally in fighting hair loss and baldness. It can also moisturize your tresses and … [Read more…]

My town is in the cold clutches of fierce winter and I am loving every minute of it! Everywhere I look I see ice and snow. I hope this weather will hold for a bit longer because I haven’t had such beautiful winter time for quite a while. Here are the photos from my afternoon … [Read more…]
