Promenade View Reviews!

As most of you know I launched Promenade View Holiday Home in April 2014, after a 9 month renovation programme converting an unloved, very sad house to the 5* luxury townhouse holiday home it is today.

We have had so many people stay this year, families from near and far and all had one thing to say – Wonderful house, great location, superb views across the Bay and amazingly well equipped with all needs taken care of.

I have been overwhelmed with all of the lovely comments so thought I would share some of them with you!

Discover the natural benefits of fermented food by Woman and Home

You’d be forgiven for thinking fermented food meant big jars of soggy pickles. But what if we told you a daily glass of kombucha could offset the ageing process? The truth is real fermentation, the kind that relies on salt rather than vinegar, is fast becoming the trendiest way to get a complete health reboot.

9 Eye Care Mistakes You’re Making

Originally posted on GR Mail:

You rely on them from the moment you wake up to when you turn off the lights at night. But are you really giving your eyes the care they deserve? We talked to Deeba Chaudri, OD, a New York City-based optometrist with LensCrafters, about her patients’ biggest bloopers when it comes to taking care of their baby blues (or browns, greens, or hazels).

Here’s what not to do to make sure your vision stays healthy well into your golden years.

Sleeping in contact lenses

There are two types of contacts that are FDA-approved for overnight wear, but Chaudri says even those can be risky. In fact, an American Academy of Ophthalmology study revealed that the risk of developing a corneal ulcer is 10 to 15 times greater in extended-wear contact lens users than those who only wear their contacts during the day. And don’t even think about sleeping in any…

GEL-NIMBUS 15 The Best Women’s Running Shoe – ASICS UK

Pronation is how a runner’s foot rolls laterally between footfall and toe-off. Underpronation is when the foot rolls outwards, overpronation is when it rolls inwards, and a neutral pattern is when little rolling occurs.




Matching a shoe’s properties with the runner’s running style will increase comfort, running efficiency, and contribute to decreasing the risk of injury.

The Gel- Nimbus 15 is the best neutral running shoe for women – by far. They got me through the London Marathon in 2013….no blisters, after trial and error with other brands and styles.

I love this review from one of their customers: “Omorovicza is a life changer! There are many luxury brands, but Omorovicza is a rare gem.

The Copper Peel brings a new radiance and life to the skin, before finishing with the Plumping Cream. The body oils are simply the best!!”

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.
