24 Tricks to Survive Hot Summer Nights (Without AC)

How to stay cool during those Hot Summer Nights.

Suffer from hot flashes or sweats? Read on…..


When summer comes to mind, we almost always focus on picnics, days lounging on the beach, and tasty iced drinks. But hot weather has a gnarly side too. We’re talking about the real dog days of summer, when intense heat and humidity make it impossible to sit comfortably, let alone sleep through the night.

The obvious solution for cool, calm, and REM-ful sleeping is an air conditioner: These modern gizmos can keep a bedroom at the optimum sleep temperature (roughly between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit), plus provide some nice white noise to boot. But even small window units use up tons of energy and jack up monthly electric bills. So what’s an environmentally-responsible, budget-conscious sleeper to do?

Living through a hot summer without AC seems impossible but, hey, our grandparents did it all the time! Turns out, they learned a few things in the process. Read on for some tried and true DIY strategies for staying cool on hot nights.

Sugar and Aging – The Truth About Glycation – Elle

Sugar and Aging


Rare is the woman who can indulge with abandon at dessert and not wonder where a little extra wobble might show up later. We all know that when it comes to our bodies, sugar is a sly villain—falling prey to its siren song (presumably something like an Oompa Loompa ditty) will give our taste buds a hit of pleasure before wreaking havoc everywhere else. But there probably aren’t many of us who worry that eating it might also cause wrinkles—and that’s not a sweet story either.

Promenade View Holiday Weekend

Heather Cowper of Heather on her Travels stayed at Promenade View for a weekend in June and kindly wrote this blog…….

Mumbles is one of those happy seaside towns that enjoyed its heyday in the early 20th century, when a trip to the seaside was a highlight of the summer for every family. With the establishment of the railway and steam trains running from Swansea from 1877, the population of this little seaside village grew and it became popular for the people of Swansea to visit Mumbles at the weekend and for holidays. Here you could enjoy an ice cream or pot of tea, take a walk along the promenade to the pier and reach the beaches of the Gower Peninsula that lie beyond.

Space NK mini Beauty Haul

My mini haul from Space NK consisted of the award-winning Glamglow Youthmud and the Rodial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic.


I had heard such great reviews about them both that I wanted to see if the hype matched the facts.

The GlamGlow Mask promises a brighter and more radiant skin in minutes and to leave skin smooth and younger looking. The first thing I notice once I’d opened my Hollywood Glam box was the tiny sized jar inside….totally out of proportion with the box size!


The product itself looked great although you have to mix it up a bit before use, as the aqua separates from the mud, so a bit annoying.

On application I found it was an exfoliator not just a mask, there were large pieces of Volcanic Minerals that felt quite harsh on my sensitive skin. I only left it on for about 10 minutes the first time as I was concerned I would react.

Did I like the product….NO! Would I use it again….YES! The truth is my skin felt amazingly smooth afterwards and the deep cleanse was one of the most effective I have used.

I then followed this with a generous spray of Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic on my super clean skin.


This Tonic spray promises the following:

Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Hydrates and smoothes the appearance of skin
Helps to brighten and refresh skin
Can be used to set make-up in place
An instant skin reviver, ideal for an instant energy boost

I found it to be one of the best hydrating products I have used. It is simple, refreshing and more importantly it hydrated my skin to give it a beautiful dewy appearance….lucky me!

I finished this off with my Omorovicza Blue Diamond Concentrate & Super Cream and the final effect was – great skin, looking brighter and more radiant than it had for a long time.


The Blue Diamond Concentrate is a serum packed with my favourite ingredient, sodium Hyaluronate which gives an instant lifting and hydration and the Super Cream has copper amino acid compounds to boost collagen and elastin production. Both have a diamond infusion that provides radiance and illuminates the skin. A little pricey (but worth it)and currently only available at Harrods! Like all Omorovicza products the natural fragrance is to die for.

“How Anti-aging Foods Work”


Looking younger, with smooth skin and a fit body, is appealing to just about everyone. But most of us want to feel younger, too…to have less stiffness when we get up in the morning and more energy and endurance for both physical and mental tasks. Drugstore aisles are filled with products – vitamins, minerals and herbs – that come with claims of helping us reach these goals: Whether you want to run farther, think faster or just remember things more easily, there’s probably a supplement out there that claims to help.

As long as you’re getting the same benefits, adopting a diet rich in anti-aging foods may be preferable to taking supplements. After all, eating well can improve your health and your appearance in a lot of ways – even if it doesn’t make you feel 10 years younger.

Bagot Stack — Improve Core Strength!

I discovered this method of exercise, which in essence is movement to music, back in the 1970′s but it has been in existence since the 1930′s. It is an incredible way to keep fit that concentrates mostly on balance and core strengthening. Particularly if you like music as it uses everything from jazz to classical, as well as modern pop and dance beats. Read more by clicking on the link:


It will help you improve your overall level of fitness with exercises for strength, stamina, flexiblility and good posture. Good posture starts with control of the core stabilising muscles. It also encourages you to keep that good posture as you move. To put it another way, we aim for “posture in action”!

Health Benefits of Mint


Mint, the well known mouth and breath freshener that is scientifically known as Mentha, has more than two dozen species and hundreds of varieties. It is a herb that has been used for hundreds of years for its remarkable medicinal properties.

Rich in menthol and anti-bacterial properties, mint is a precious gift of mother nature which is bestowed upon us. Being a herb loaded with innumerable beauty benefits, mint is used in various cleanser, toner, astringent and moisturizer.

The market is full of products like moisturisers, toners, tooth paste, chewing gum, breath fresheners, candy and inhalers which have mint as their base element. Most of us are familiar with the refreshing application of mint, but it has far more to offer than that.

Vitamins and Minerals
Fresh mint, including spearmint and peppermint, contains several key vitamins and minerals you need for good health, though they’re not present in huge amounts. For example, fresh mint contains trace amounts of iron, a mineral you need to make red blood cells. Mint also has small amounts of fiber, vitamin A and potassium.


Antioxidant Power
One of the primary benefits of fresh mint is that it contains potent antioxidants. Peppermint, for example, has perillyl alcohol, which might stop the formation or spread of cancer, according to Michael T. Murray and Joseph E. Pizzorno, authors of “The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods.” Peppermint also contains another antioxidant called rosmarinic acid, which can help prevent and treat certain allergies.

Digestive Benefits
Eating fresh mint leaves might help promote digestion, according to Murray and Pizzorno. Mint, most notably peppermint, also acts as a carminative, which means it can help ease gas and its associated symptoms. Peppermint makes the flow of bile more efficient, which means that you digest your food more quickly, and it also helps relax the muscles in your digestive tract, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Fresh Mint In Your Diet
Chop fresh mint leaves and scatter them over a tossed green or grilled chicken salad. Fresh Mint tea is ideal to help digestion, helps boost the immune system as well as aid sleep and promote relaxation. It will help improve your skin so it looks fresher and more vibrant.
