Why we will remain positive in the autumnal puddles

This month, I thought a lot about our community and wondered why it was that they were all so dearly cool.  So, rather than do the guesswork, I set out to ask them some questions.  I didn’t interrogate them, nor did I put words into their mouthes. Instead I simply allowed them to talk. What…

Gratuity Where Gratuities Due

Each month and I suppose we could say each day, someone, somewhere provides us with an opportunity to celebrate. Now isn’t that a noble thing to do? So, for the sake of keeping the vibes of our pharmacy in good shape, we decided to join in the celebration of ‘World Gratitude Day’ this month by…

What The Greeks Taught Us About Wellness

This summer, I left our beloved Barcelona to delve into the culture of another place. I decided to scurry over to our neighbouring country, Greece. Mostly because I was particularly interested in how they lived, what they may have inherited from the classic antiquity and what implications that had on their wellbeing. In other words,…

New on the block – Moisturiser Pollution Protect

Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present, straight from the production house’s door, our latest gem, Moisturiser Pollution Protect. Now, this moisturiser is not just any moisturiser. It’s a moisturiser that took us by storm. It took us all around the city of Barcelona and showed us what for. While we danced along the under-path and…

Embody the Healing Light at Midnight

I sat last night on a roof terrace with a very dear friend Benjamin Swatez. This friend of mine is very special because his heart is explosive and his mind is amazing. As we usually do, we deep dived into a sentimental chat and happened to land on the full moon. Together we realised that…

Feel at ease in your legs and feet with Gingko Biloba Gel

Fly high above the sky and you will understand why, we have been blessed with a fruitful apple pie 🙂 I say fruitful because our own garden is vast and wide and full of pride. It contains the fruits of our labour that we’ve cultivated together. It comes from our mother earth who looks on…

Let’s Join Together in a Verse of Happiness

Whilst I was at the beach last month I decided I’d set myself a daily task of writing a verse. What this task did was guide me to the people, places and pages that opened my heart to my blessings. Now what I’m going to do is share those blessings with you to urge you on…

To travel is to be gifted

Our beloved Hans Christian Andersen delivered many fairytales that have left a mark on our hearts and minds. But it was his love of travel that inspired my journal as I took a trip to the UK. While I perched in the leather aisle seat of my flight to the Great British Isles and enjoyed…

An afternoon with our resident Pilates teacher, Niki

It was a glorious Sunday in Barcelona and I made my way across to a hidden little gem known as Parque de la Estació del Nord, nestled neatly behind the Arc de Triomf. I was on my way to take part in my first ever Pilates class with a dear teacher called Niki. When I…

Finding a new sweet at Barcelona’s Poetry week

I recently caught myself looking at a full sized casting of a grandiose figure who’d claimed the name The Poet. It was in fact the accomplished sculptor Augusten Rodin that conceived this sensational nude male resting deep in thought back in 1880. Since then the figure has lost his original titlage and gained not only…

Gautama Buddha taught me to inspect and respect my skin

Today is the day in the calendar that marks the birth, enlightenment and death of Gautama Buddha, a man who’s teachings encouraged me to let go of my shadows this morning. Incidentally, I felt inspired to inspect my skin and look within. As I saw my tea stained lips below my subtle hair flicks and…

From the greatest lover on Sant Jordi

As I made my way to Farmacia Barcelona on the acclaimed Passeig de Gracia, I noted the entire street filled with books and roses. Of course, a romantic never forgets Sant Jordi, a most important day in the Catalan calendar. The day, as it ought to be, is set in stone as its tradition stems…
