Yay its officially Spring!  Even if you still feel the chill in the morning at least we wake up the light skies and I’ve even noticed the evenings are getting longer. Doesn’t it just make you feel great.

So, are you still following my six months bikini body. How have you been getting on? In January we gave up sweets and I gave you tips to beat that sweet tooth. February we gave up fried foods. I hope you didn’t find that too challenging! For March we are giving up Alcohol and your skin will look amazing after one month of no booze. Your face will glow and the skin on your hips and thighs will appear smoother. You will also loose the puffiness that all the toxins in your favourite tipple give up. Just give it a go, one month is all I ask. Remember - bikini bodies are made in the winter!

2014 Professional Beauty Awards
 

On a fun note - I was honoured to be asked to be on the team of Judges/Official visitors for the Professional Beauty Awards & World Spa Awards 2014. I like to call it the beauty industry Oscars. Last week we were treated to a glamorous champagne reception and dinner at the Guildhall in Westminster which is just stunning. We were given goody bags from Elemis - who doesn't like a freebie? I dined with other beauty industry experts around the world including all the best Salons and Spa companies. Our host on the night was Alexander Armstrong and he had us all in fits of laughter.

The winner of Beauty Salon of the year 2014 (salons with under three treatment rooms) was The Barn in Somerset . If you ever travel to Somerset you simply must have a treatment at this amazing salon. I had the pleasure of visiting this salon and I had a lovely facial and guess what…the salon really is a barn in a field - but a very nice barn in a very nice field might I add.

Another fantastic salon I visited for the awards was Zen Lifestyle who actually won Salon of the Year 2014 (four treatment rooms or more). Now these are based in Edinburgh but if your there for work or play I insist you visit this amazing place. I had a massage and the therapist transported me to another word.

Other main winners on the night were Nail salon of the year - Coco Nail bar , London and Day Spa of the Year - Woodland Spa, Burnley .
