1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I learnt all about natural beauty through my own journey for my health and to pass on info to my patients. They suggested that I start a blog to spread the green beauty word 🙂 It was only after I got talking to anyone and everyone about their products and these guys took my suggestions on board that I thought people might be interested in what I’m saying!
2. What is your signature perfume/scent?
I have a few 🙂 I love perfumes by Lurk Beauty and Pure Natural Divas. At the moment Aurelia’s Dry Body oil smells so good on me, I’m using that as my perfume! Anything with Neroli and Jasmine ticks my box.
3. Where is your ideal holiday destination?
I’m going through a phase at the moment where I’m really attracted to the Middle East. The last few years, I have travelled to Lebanon for work, here is the post here all about it, and the beauty, energy and history there is fascinating! I would love to travel to Petra in Jordan, one day and discover the ancient town.
4. What’s your favourite sport?
Rugby!! If I’m really honest its only because us Irish are really good at it LOL I live for the 6 Nations and usually the last matches are on the 17th of March, St. Patrick’s Day. There is always a massive party afterwards to celebrate a win or to soften the blow of a loss.
5. What are your 3 desert island beauty essentials?
My dry shampoo, without a doubt! How I coped with out it in my pre-green living days, I do not know! Olive Oil. My skin loves oils and products that taste like food unfortunately! But I dont mind as my skin and hair are so good with it. Finally, my third pick, hmmmmmm! This is hard, I keep thinking of natural things on the island I could use LOLOLOL Ok finally Id need my Therapi toner! It works as a mist for hair, smells good so can use as a perfume and refreshing when out in the sun all day! Although raspberry seed oil would protect me from the sun……
6. What do you want to achieve with your blog?
Id love the blog to be a reference point to inspire people to embrace a natural way of living for their health and well-being. To realise that, wellbeing doesnt not just mean free from dis-ease but a way of life that everyone can achieve! I started off as a green beauty site as I ways shocked to see so many pathologies linked to cosmetics in my patients. The blog has started to take its own shape with requests for recipes, health tips and posts on understanding how our body works. That sounded very profound but there is also a side of me that wants a 1000 followers on all socail media LOLOLOL
7. If you could pick, what would be your last ever meal?
Colcannon, definitely with a ganky load of butter, along side fried chicken, but using my gluten and dairy free version! Banoffee pie to finish off. Now I’m hungry……
8. Where is your favourite place to be?
In the garden! I love hearing the birds and breeze and smelling cut grass and flowers! It doesn’t have to be the quietest place. I even finding hearing traffic go by, but sitting in the garden really peaceful!
9. What is one of your favourite quotes?
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” Maya Angelou
10. What songs would be included on the soundtrack to your life?
Can I have albums? My teenager years can be summed up by three albums, Des’ree Supernatural, Janet Jackson Velvet Rope and All Saints. These guys bring back so many memories! Never Forget by Take That, has been with me on every occasion and Best Thing by Ray Lemontagne was my first dance at my wedding.
11. What was the best compliment you ever received?
In my job as a homeopath, I often help guide people through sometimes difficult situations, and have been told that I am very insightful. Although I don’t see it myself, I am very humbled to receive this compliment from patients. I also get told often that I am a very good listener.
