It was during my first trip to Africa in 2009. I spent several weeks in a remote village on Lake Malawi. I lived with the villagers in a mud hut without any electricity, running water or sanitation as we know I and I loved it.
One day, I sat by the lake just watching the local villagers. I suddenly noticed that they were using fine grains of sand, that lined the shore of the lake, to rub all over their bodies to exfoliate and condition their skin.They then took natural rocks and stones to remove the hard skin from their feet and bathed in the lake… then I realised what I really wanted to do with my life. At that moment the idea was born..So, on my return to the UK, I set about this long arduous journey to formulate a collection of high quality natural and organic skin care products, and in late 2011, Althea Tomlin Skincare was born.

There’s a simple skincare truth that is at the heart of making your skin youthful, fresher and healthier and they're not 'faddy' new ingredients that promise the world, and they're not exorbitantly priced either, it’s vitamins.
These natural compounds are as necessary to inner and outer health as water. The body only delivers a small percentage of metabolised vitamins, from food and d..
It's not even a month since Christmas, and already it seems like ages ago. I tend to use the early part of January for reflection and review, and to think about what's been good and what we need to work on in 2015 and beyond,as there's always room for improvement.
One of the things I'm really happy about going into 2015, is the number of bloggers who gave up their time last year to review o..
So it's the New Year and 2016 has arrived and where did 2015 go?

From mouth watering smells of cooking, roasting and baking emerging from the kitchen, to the sweet fragrances of relaxing bath oils a..
I've always been fascinated by the Christmas stocking. Written records don’t really indicate how the tradition of the Christmas stocking got started, but there are several legends surrounding this wonderful tradition. The most trustworthy legend maintains that Saint Nicolas learned about a poor man who couldn’t afford to pay a dowry for his three daughters, and he was worried about them. Sa..
