Living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome – IBS and me!

Sometimes I feel like IBS is the soundtrack to my life.  It is always there in one form or another, and I am always hunting for a way to turn the volume down.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of those things that nobody seems to have a definitive solution for and it is exacerbated by long-term illnesses like fibromyalgia and diabetes.  Medication that you take to solve one thing seems to make it worse, so it is a constant juggling act.  For me this is the hard truth when it comes to painkillers and anti-inflammatories I need to take for arthritis.

Warning:  This is a post with a bit TMI (too much information) but I hope it will help my fellow irritable bowel syndrome sufferers.

It isn’t all doom and gloom though

A few things have helped me to deal with IBS.  The first one is simply accepting that it isn’t going anywhere.  It isn’t ever going to go away and I simply have to deal with it.  Anyone who suffers will know what I mean when I say that sometimes I simply don’t want to go out because of it.  Sometimes I am literally curled up in a ball with tummy cramps.  Don’t even start the constipation and diarrhoea.

I have however found some products and techniques that do help, and they help so much that I really wanted to write about them.

doTERRA ZenGest Oil

This little bottle of magical goodness has actually changed my life.  To give you an idea of how much, imagine this scenario.  I always have a little rollerball of Zengest diluted with fractionated coconut oil around me.  I roll it on my tummy and then massage it in a clockwise direction.  This is literally the most soothing thing ever.  The cramps simply dissolve.  It is also great for constipation.

On the odd occasion I lose it.  It rolls under the bed, or the sofa (I actually have two on the go). You have never seen my so energised trying to find it.  I literally go to pieces because I know that it is my little lifesaver in a bottle.

doTERRA Zengest has a unique blend (sometimes called the tummy tamer blend) and contains the calming properties of Ginger, Fennel, Coriander, Peppermint, Tarragon, Anise, and Caraway. ZenGest can be diffused for its liquorice aroma, applied topically to the abdomen, or taken internally.

doTERRA Peppermint Oil

Another little roller bottle (I dilute the pure oil to use as a massage oil) that I have at my side all the time.  I often layer the two together for the ultimate relief.  Peppermint oil has been a favourite of mine for many years and I have used it for a number of different purposes from calming anxiety, clearing my breath, a simple pick me up and more.  My son, as a child called it magic oil.  It is also mighty for tummy troubles, and can be added to a cup of hot water for an instant peppermint tea – and we all know that is perfect for bloating and that full feeling.  (Note:  not all oils can be taken internally, but this one is OK) .

Peppermint oil has the added bonus of clearing your airways and freshening your breath.

Prune Juice

Yes, although I am super grateful for the difference the doTERRA products are making in my life, another new addition that is helping is old-fashioned prune juice.  A small glass every day is helping to keep me regular and that in itself gives me the confidence to manage my IBS life better.

doTERRA Lemon in lots of water

Hydration is vital – especially when you are taking as many medications as I am.  I try to drink up to 2 litres of water a day.  On the advice of my friends Mike and Sinead at West2Wellness, I started adding a few drops of lemon oil to my water jug.  Not only does it taste delicious, but it is a great internal cleanser.

Last but not least ….

doTERRA Terrazyme

This is a supplement created by doTERRA containing digestive enzymes as well as other goodies.  It supports healthy digestion and metabolic processes.  I pop a pill or two especially when eating a full meal.  It is a little like sending in the solution before the problem.  I am pretty sure this is helping my weight too.

I always think long and hard before writing about any products on my blog.  I need to know that they work for me and be sure that the information is worth sharing.  I have been on a huge health journey over the past year (more about that soon).  I have made doTERRA oils and supplements a part of this journey for the last few months and I can honestly say that these little bottles of goodness have quietened the IBS soundtrack.

I get my products (which are conveniently delivered to my door) from Mike and Sinead at West2Wellness.  They have their own health stories which continue to inspire me.

If you are suffering with Irritable bowel syndrome and want to chat about it or get any advice, please feel free to message me or get directly in touch with West2Wellness.

Thank you for reading my IBS story.

Escaping to the Wild Atlantic Way

When I think about travel, I tend to think about aeroplanes and the need for a passport.  Sometimes we forget that we have some glorious opportunities on our own doorstep.  Why not consider a little staycation closer to home?

A reason to celebrate

It isn’t that I need a reason to go on an adventure, but when the Merriman Hotel in Kinvara invited me to try a midweek break, I thought it would be an excellent way to celebrate our June birthdays.

So, we packed a little bag and headed off to Kinvara which is a beautiful fishing village on the Wild Atlantic Way.  A little over an hour from home Kinvara is also the gateway to the beautiful Burren in County Clare.

There are pros and cons about the Irish Summer.  The pros are that the landscape is truly picturesque, and the expression ‘50 shades of green’ is truly in bloom.  The con is that for this lush landscape to bloom we have  a lot of rain!  I am used to rain by now, and a good coat with a hood means that I am ready to go – regardless of the weather.

The Merriman Hotel in beautiful Kinvara

The Merriman Hotel, the largest thatch roof structure in Ireland and has a cosy traditional feel, inviting you in and encouraging you to stay.  As we were on a mini break I wanted to pack as much as I could into the day.

After checking in, we headed off for a walk through the town, stopping to browse in some interesting and quirky shops.  We landed up at Sair a coffee shop gallery for a delicious cappuccino and a naughty slice of pecan nut pie.  Despite being June, the weather was crisp and after the walk I had built up an appetite for dinner.  We returned to our comfy room, and then to settle in before thinking about an evening meal.

More Delicious Food

We decided to stay at the Merriman that evening and dine at the Thatch Bar.  One of the great things about a mini break is that you can relax, enjoy a drink and know that you only have to wander upstairs to bed and that nobody has to drive home.

I cannot recommend the food at the Thatch Bar at the Merriman enough.  It was lip smackingly delicious.  I chose traditional fish, chips and mushy peas.  The batter was crisp and delicious and the fish so fresh!  The portion was huge, but that was ok because himself landed up having both his sticky spare ribs and some of my fish.  As it was a birthday celebration we indulged in dessert.   Apple crumble for him and a delicious Eton Mess for me!

Day Two in Kinvara

After a great night’s sleep and a few cups of tea in bed we came down to breakfast, which was served buffet style with a large choice of fruits, cereals and pastries plus of course a traditional full Irish breakfast.  Once again excellent food, of course washed down with a few more cups of tea.

I am not used to a full breakfast, so we decided to go for a walk before heading off.  The grey skies were threatening, but we donned our coats and took a refreshing walk down to the harbour where the views across the water were simply stunning.

Visit Kinvara on a Thursday night – there is a good reason …

If you are booking a mid-week mini break at The Merriman Hotel, I would advise booking a Thursday.  The reason is that on a Friday there is really the most fabulous Farmers Market which takes place on a Friday morning from 10 am.  You will find a huge range of delicious food items (to eat there or to take home), local crafts and a great choice of fresh fruit and vegetables.

As we were rather full of our delicious breakfast I did a little shopping for home.  I bought a sharp local cheese with a hint of chilli, some very indulgent cinnamon and spice buns, and a ciabatta, which is was yummy toasted.

Onwards on the Wild Atlantic Way

Kinvara is a great stopping off place for visiting the Burren and County Clare.  It is only another short drive to amazing beaches such as Flaggy Shore, and Fanore Beach (my personal favourite), and the iconic Cliffs of Moher.

I am really blessed to live so close to this area, and I will definitely be back on a sunny day.  Stopping first at the Merriman Hotel for their famous Sunday carvery lunch and then making my way down the Wild Atlantic Way.

 

Thank you for reading about my adventures.

The best way to start a holiday!

I love going on holidays.  What I don’t like is the getting ready.  I get quite stressed about the packing in case I leave anything behind.  My other big stress is getting to the airport.  To drive or catch a bus?  Where to park?  Quite honestly I don’t normally want to be around myself the day before travel.

The Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown offer a service called #StayParkFly –  you can stay over at the hotel the night before you fly, and leave your car there.  They then offer a shuttle service dropping you right at the airport.

I was delighted to collaborate with the Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown on our recent visit to Turkey. We were flying at 6am on Sunday morning so needed to be at the airport at 4am.  And, yes the shuttle bus was available at this hour of the night.

This was such a cool experience that I decided to dedicate a full blog post to what I am now calling the first day of the holiday.

Day 1 of my Holiday

On Saturday afternoon we took a leisurely drive up to Dublin arriving at the hotel mid-afternoon.  I have visited the Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown before and I know the rooms are lovely but we were given a real treat and upgraded to a suite.  I felt like a movie star!  We settled in with a cup of tea and some lovely little cakes.  I stretched out like a star fish on the bed and himself watched a little TV.

Instead of my usual stress I felt so relaxed, like I was on holiday already.  And what better way to celebrate the beginning of a holiday than a wonderful G&T!  The bar is so lovely and welcoming and all the staff were super helpful.

We needed an early night (as we had an extremely long day ahead of us) so we had an early dinner.  A delicious juicy steak for himself and some yummy pumpkin ravioli for me, before heading off to our gorgeous room for a bubble bath and an early night.

Watch a video of my ‘room tour’ here

Day 2 of our holiday

The next morning I woke up and instead of being stressed, I was excited!  The attitude of the staff at this hotel is fantastic.  Before 4am we came downstairs with our bags to be greeted with a smile, and two little bags with take-away breakfast of croissants, muffins, fruit and water.  Our cheerful driver Michael set off for Dublin Airport – next stop for us – Marmaris, Turkey!

You know the feeling when you come home from holiday.  You have been travelling hours on a mini bus and a budget airline and you are beyond tired.  This is normally the time when you have to either climb on a bus for another few hours, or play the game of find the car in among hundreds of cars in the long-term parking.  By this stage my fatigue normally has me close to tears.

What a difference this was.  Despite our plane being delayed, the cheerful driver Michael was waiting for us, he had even called ahead to check that we knew where to find him.

I can honestly say that the wonderful service from the staff at the Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown contributed to a wonderful holiday.

Our stay at the Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown was gifted to us.  Thank you very much!  Thank you also to Sinead from the Irish Blogger Agency.

p.s.  The next installment of our holiday in amazing Turkey will be coming soon!  And it includes my take on a Turkish Bath!

Time to love my nails

I always think that it’s important to have pretty nails, especially when your hands are on display. As I teach art and craft – this is quite often.

Over the past few years I have really struggled.  My fingers have lots of lumps and bumps because of arthritis, and are often swollen.  My nails have simply been a disaster area.

Years on methotrexate (a chemotherapy based drug used for arthritis) saw them in a dreadful state.  They were so ridged they were like corduroy.  That isn’t the worst.  They split – vertically, and flaked and some of them simply stopped growing.

For someone who has always had a nail polish library this was quite distressing.  I must admit that I neglected my nails too.  It just became depressing.

There is nothing I can do about the lumps and bumps, and nothing I can do about the fact that my hands are in their fifties just like my body.  There is however quite a lot I can do about my nails.

Since I have been off methotrexate my nails have slowly started healing, but are far from fine.

Making a Nail Commitment

A couple of months ago I made a commitment to myself.  I was going to take care of my hands.  They may be arthritic but they are the only hands I have.

I set myself up with hand cream – my choice was a nourishing hand and nail treatment from Roger+Gallet – aptly called sublime.  This brand has been going for years (my granny used it) – truly standing the test of time. I placed this along with some cuticle oil next to my sofa spot and promised to nurture my hands and nails every day.  What a difference this has made.   Things have improved significantly but unfortunately the ridges are still quite prominent.

Treating myself to Mavala

I went off to the pharmacy to treat myself to a new colour.  I love Mavala – the little bottles of delicious colour remind me of paint.  They never go hard and you can build up a whole library of little pots of deliciousness.  I chose a gorgeous pearly shade called Rose.

The real find for me was the Mavala ridge filer from the Nail camouflage range.  At nearly nine euros I had to have a little think about it.  I then reminded myself that I was taking care of my body which does so much for me.

What a brilliant little pot of goodness.  I used it as an undercoat and it was brilliant.  My nail polish went on smoothly and lasted for days!

I really think it is important to give our body and in this case our hands a bit of tender loving care.  Now all I need to decide is which colour to add to my library next.

Mavala is available from most pharmacies. 

(This isn’t a sponsored post – I bought the products myself and absolutely love them)

Thanks for reading.  I hope this inspires you to love your hands too.

Feeling fresh with Pit Putty natural deodorant

I love smelling fresh, and I don’t like sweating, but then again I don’t like deodorant or antiperspirant.  The stingy spray is painful and the fumes choking.  This is not something I often reveal.

One day I was trawling through Facebook and came across a fellow blogger’s review of Pit Putty.

Avril, blogger at  A Paler Shade of Beauty speaks honestly and I immediately knew I must try this natural deodorant.

As I was about to head to the sunny island of Tenerife for a holiday, this was the perfect opportunity to try a new product.  The makers – almost local to me in the West of Ireland, kindly sent me a sample to try out.

It’s funny that in this world of budget travel, and no checked luggage, my first thought was wow!  I can take this in my little zip lock back and it won’t be a problem.

Hand made by Laura and Luke in County Sligo in Ireland, these deodorants are unisex (depending on the fragrance of course) and really effective. Using only 100% natural and vegan ingredients, this innovative product is completely free from harmful chemicals, aluminium oxides and preservatives.  You simply pull a little of the paste together, warm it in your hands and apply it to your pits.

Sharing is Caring

I didn’t quite realise I was sharing mine until a couple of days into the holiday I noticed a fresh aroma of limes after going in for a cuddle.  At this point we had walked 10 000 steps and sunned ourselves on a hot beach for a few hours.  I politely enquired if he was using my deodorant and he said that he had tried it one morning and it worked.

Fragrances include the Lime and tea tree  which is definitely unisex as well as Lime, basil and mandarin, Three flowers and Lavender and lemon.  I think I might have a girly one next!

I only review products on my blog that I really like!  My reviews are honest and I have no hesitation in recommending that you try these innovative but extremely effective little pots of Pit Putty this summer.

Thanks for reading and be sure to let me know if you try it!

The Joy of a Solo Cinema Outing

I love the cinema.  The allure of the darkness, of being totally drawn into a story with no multi-tasking allowed.

I am not sure quite why, but I always believed you needed a companion for the cinema.  Someone to share popcorn with and chat.  That is fun, but I have found it isn’t a necessity.  There is something quite indulgent about taking yourself to the cinema.  Choosing the movie that you want to see, selecting your snack and drink and allowing yourself the luxury of a couple of hours in darkness where you are totally engrossed.

Being Brave

The first time I flew solo to the cinema, I was fresh out of a relationship and feeling a bit lonely.  There was a movie that I really wanted to see.  Maudie is a wonderful movie about Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis who suffered debilitating arthritis.  I was intrigued, and I really wanted to experience her story.  I put my feelers out asking friends and relations if they fancied a visit to the cinema.  No takers.  I had a good chat with myself and decided to simply go by myself.  It was liberating!  (On a side note, if you can find this movie on Netflix or another streaming platform watch it!)

This solo movie thing has become a bit of a quiet addiction.  I drive past the Eye Cinema in Galway (my favourite haunt) I am tempted to pull in just to see what is on.  Finding your Feet – a wonderful romantic comedy featuring Celia Imrie, Imelda Staunton and Joanna Lumley gave me so much delight.  It lifted my spirits and when it was over – I took myself off to the 5-star g Hotel for a solo cappuccino.  I was getting the hang of this.

Go solo to the cinema this month

I have lots of friends and a wonderful partner, but I am now a firm believer in flying solo at the cinema.  I like the 3pm time slot which seems to feature my kind of movie.  My latest outing was to the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.  I had read the book some time ago and was intrigued to see how it translated onto the big screen.  What a delight.  A really beautiful representation of a wonderful story line and truly complex characters.  As a budding writer I was fascinated by the story within a story.  I loved seeing how the story unfolded as each character revealed their part in the establishment of this book club during the Nazi occupation of Guernsey.   I won’t add too many spoilers as this is still showing.

Modern life is all about multi-tasking.  We watch television while checking Facebook.  We are constantly juggling tasks and activities.  How often though, do we simply do one thing – for a couple of hours?

I now consider myself a card-carrying member of the solo cinema club, and a cheerleader too.

I’d love to hear your movie recommendations – I know I am going to be indulging again very soon – there is so much good stuff coming up.

 

Thank you so much for reading about my viewing habits.

Destressing my skin and my soul with Hayo’u

Stress is part of my life.  It is part of all our lives and relieving stress is high up on my list of things to deal with.

Over the past couple of years I have learnt to deal with my stress better. To be simply be more ‘in the moment when it comes to day-to-day life.  If I am upset over something I stop and breathe.  Simple I know but it has made a huge difference.

When I received news of the Hayo’u range of products I was intrigued.  I wanted to know more about a pamper product that seemed to understand where I was in my life.

The Hayo’u Method

Rather than a range of products I was introduced to the Hayo’u Method.  The system is designed to tackle stress levels and make you feel and look younger so a win in my book.

The package of samples (thank you so much) arrived.  Are these going to be any different to other bath and pamper products.  I had to wonder. They are so very different that I have to attempt to explain the sensory experience that I have had, and continue to have using this method.

The first of my senses was my sense of smell.  I love oils and the combination of lotus flower and frankincense. And combined with the healing properties of Himalayan pink salt it is just heavenly.  The first product I used was the shower gel which  immediately invigorated me.  But, as I was road testing the product I needed to follow instructions.  Each product comes with a little insert which introduces you to the one minute breathing exercise. This little ritual is rooted in the wisdom on Chinese medicine and helps you to focus inwards and calm your mind.  As you breathe in the gorgeous aromas you are drawing out physical tension and inviting in calm.

I love the instructions – Expel – the stale breath, Descend as you breathe in and then as you exhale – Smile though your whole body.  Try it – it feels great and puts me in a happy place.

After trying the shower gel I was ready for a bath, but waited for the following day.  I normally shower but I have been treating myself to baths quite a bit especially since I have been in a bit of pain.  The reason there are none of my own pics for this blog post is that I have used up all the bath product!  A gorgeous oily salty pink pile that I used both as a bath salt and a bit of a scrub.

A Stone massage at home

As if that wasn’t enough there were two more packages in the parcel.  The  Hayo’u Beauty Restorer De-stress Face Tool  a beautiful jade specially shaped stone, and a little bottle of gorgeously aromatic Treat-Rite De-stress Face Oil.

The two are used together to stimulate energy points and release congestion and toxicity.  I have included the video link so you can see how it is used, but let us just say I am addicted.  The experience is wonderful with the fragrance from the oil and the cool pressure of the jade stone tricking me into believing I am in an expensive spa.

It is easier to watch the video than to try to explain how this all works.

https://www.hayoumethod.com/the_one_minute_beauty_ritual/

As a blogger I get asked to try products fairly often but I only write honestly and write about products that I really love.  This little parcel has already brought me so much joy and relaxation that I have no hesitation in recommending it. These are not budget products, however I really think that they are simply fabulous and worth a treat to yourself.

Thank you so much for reading and promise me that no matter what products you use, please treat yourself to a relaxing bath – it is something I think we all neglect.  Lie there and simply breathe.

p.s.  I was gifted these items to try, but my review is from the heart.

An added bonus ingredient from The Body Shop makes me smile

Body shop Vitamin E Fabulicousfifty

I first heard of hyaluronic acid last year – and the more I read about it the more it made sense to me.  It is a little bit of magic that locks moisture into your skin.

Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in the body and acts as a moisture magnet trapping up to 1000 times its own weight – excellent for the odd wrinkle.

I am getting a little bit older, and I am becoming more conscious of aging.  I am not looking to age backwards, but to simply be the best I can be.  Looking after my skin is a priority and I don’t have a big budget to do that.

I was delighted when I saw that the Body Shop Vitamin E range now has the added bonus included hyaluronic acid.

This product range, which now has some new family members ticks all my boxes.  My skin is quite dry and I find that the moisture is really locked in as promised.

I was lucky enough to have access to one of those magic wand things you see in the shops that measure the moisture in your skin.  The science geeky side of me likes being able to back up my gut feeling on a product range – the difference before and after was significant.

The products I tried are the Aqua Boost Essence lotion which is not a cream but neither is it a liquid.  It is deliciously cooling and leaves me feeling really refreshed especially during the hot weather.  I follow this with the Moisture Protect Emulsion which is silky smooth.

All the products have a fresh fragrance (I am fussy about things like that), and I know that all the ingredients are natural and pure, which means quite a lot.

I have been using these products for a good few weeks and I am delighted with them.

I was given these products to test, but was not paid for this review.  I reviewed it because it fits my ethos about our right to feel fabulous!

Thanks for reading.

When only tea and a biscuit will do – Bake it Easy review

 

bake it easy fabuliciousfifty

I am not quite sure how all the science behind tea works, but what I do know is that by this stage in my life I probably have more tea in my veins than blood.

I just love the stuff.  It is neither sweet nor savoury but this hot drink is what I reach for … well for almost any occasion.

I drink tea throughout the day at it simply makes me feel better.  It gives me a boost of energy (that would be the caffeine), but at the same time it relaxes me.  I think it might be the sitting down and taking 10 to 15  minutes to drink the tea that helps.

I also associate tea with friends.  Nothing quite like a sitting on the sofa with a pot of tea and a plate of biscuits and doing what woman do best – setting the world right with a cup of tea and a chat.

I love homemade biscuits but rarely get myself together to make them.  I was delighted to discover Bake it Easy on twitter one night.  (Yes, the world has changed to that degree that I find new things on twitter!)

Maria was kind enough to send me some samples to try.  The chocolate ones disappeared magically!

It is simply wonderful and every so slightly indulgent.  The jar of cookie mix can be ordered online and stashed in the grocery cupboard.  Tip out the mixture, add an egg and butter and randomly spoon out onto a baking sheet.  It is that easy.

Tea is now just a little bit more fabulous, the only problem is limiting yourself to two, or three.  They taste yummy with absolutely no artificial after taste.

bake it easy mixes blogI think I might just pop the oven on – I have a Bake it Easy smartie cookie mix in the cupboard and could quite happily down another cup of tea.

Thank you for my gift – Meaghers Pharmacy

meaghers one

 

It was like Christmas this morning – thank you Meaghers Pharmacy.  On a Monday in April with the rain at the window.

Yesterday I was privileged to speak at the Elite Munster Bloggers Network event in Limerick.  I was honestly over-excited especially as I got to chat to so many bloggers and get up to date on the latest products and trends.

At the end of the day, when I was quite tired, I was given a black box!  Now although I was excited, I was simply too tired to open it, so this morning it was Christmas for me.

The box, was a gift from Meaghers Pharmacy.  I am told that this is how all their products are delivered when you order from the website.

Opening time ….

-it's getting exciting ...Opening the box revealed a lovely letter and lots of yellow tissue paper – my favourite!

Each item was carefully wrapped individually with a little quality seal sticker on each one.  Now you know what I mean – it was like Christmas.

meaghers threeThings have been a bit tough financially this year with having to give up work due to my health.  I have had to dial back my beauty spending.  The selection of products for us to try felt like it had been selected for me!

  • A brand new Sleek palette – my favourite eyeshadow brand.  I think the pigment is really strong and the colours stays!
  •  A cool Code VLM mascara to transform my eyelashes
  • And for my lips a luscious NYX soft matt lip cream

And to take off my make-up …

  • Bioderma H20 solution
  • Nip+Fab Glycolic Daily Cleansing pads

And for pamper time.

  • A yummy smelling bamboo green tea candle from Purcell & Woodcock
  • A wild Irish Seaweed moisturising mask – the healing benefits of seaweed are well-known and now I get to treat my face.
  • I was admiring the Victoria’s Secret bottles on the exhibition table and guess what was inside – a full bottle of Amber Romance fragrance mist.

meaghers four

Blogging means a lot to me – I write about being fabulous despite the curveballs life throws at us.  This little box made me feel fabulous today!  A girl should always have some treats to make her feel special.

The good news is that I can have a few more treats as Meaghers Pharmacy had given me a discount code to use, and to share with my blog readers!   I think I might use my discount to treat myself to the new brush cleaner as I have been working on a make-up maintenance post.

It is only valid until 17th April – so by using Code ELITE34 – you can get your own delivery of a special Black box filled with yellow tissue and gifts to yourself.  You can find the website at www.meaghers.ie

This is a bit of a different post for me but I hope you enjoyed sharing my excitement of have Christmas on a wet Monday in April.

Thanks for reading.
