I’ve always been a great believer in supplements for maintaining optimum health and if ever there was a time to start taking them, surely that time is now. It’s been widely acknowledged that good health is crucial to fighting off and surviving Covid. The most vulnerable are those with underlying conditions.

A gem of a skincare range

Glynis Barber Diary 1 Comment

I’ve tried so many fabulous natural skincare products since starting this site that I was becoming a bit blasé. In fact I have so many to get through that in all honesty I often only use them for a few days and then move on to the next ones. It’s frustrating at times and my skin has forgotten what it’s …

It’s not often that I find products from the land of my birth so when I found the Africa Organics brand as I was browsing on Love Lula, I was instantly intrigued and of course had to try them. And they are rather special. At the moment the range is quite small consisting of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body …

Oh dear oh dear! Our second dance went down like a cup of cold tea! While everyone else shimmied and smouldered, we did Line Dancing with such a huge crowd of backing dancers that you couldn’t even see us! Our one big moment of jumping backwards off our platform and crowd surfing was completely lost by the strange sideways camera …

Oh my goodness, that was such an adrenalin rush on Saturday night doing the tango with my husband LIVE on television! My husband, who seemed to go into a funk the day before with his attention span plummeting to below zero, a swollen foot that caused him to limp when walking never mind dancing and an attitude that can only be …

So the time has finally arrived! After 5 weeks of dancing, falling over, sprained limbs, muscle spasms, bruises, physio, icing, frustration, excitement, anticipation and sheer terror, there is nowhere left to hide! It’s dance time! We’ve had a lot of fun with all the other couples. There’s a great sense of camaraderie and whilst a certain amount of competitiveness is …
