SERIOUS JUICERS JUICE SLOWLY...

 

The Omega VSJ Vertical Slow Juicer is a very trendy juicer that will make a style statement in any kitchen, and also makes the perfect summery wedding gift for the couple who has everything.

With the recent announcement of the sugar tax, making your own juices at home is a great, very healthy way to make sure you and your kids drink nutrient-dense juices with no sugar, preservatives or other artificial processed nasties.

Slow juicers retain more nutrients, keep healthy enzymes in tact, and produce more juice yield than fast juicers. They are also great at juicing leafy greens and other veggies, too, and the juices have a longer shelf life, which is great for families.

This summers hottest make-up trends

make-up trends - red lipstick

 

Lord & Berry Expert Make-up Artist Elkie Phillips explains how blushing brides can create the hottest make-up trends for the summer season.  Tight-lining

Tight-lining is a way of applying eyeliner so close to your lashes it gives the illusion of naturally thick and dark lashes. This especially useful for people with less lashes than most or to give that extra dimension to an everyday look.  To achieve this look I recommend a good waterproof pencil eyeliner such as Lord & Berry Smudgeproof eyeliner in Black and also a deep pigmented Kohl eyeliner such as Lord & Berrys Couture Kajal pencil eyeliner.
