      A New Twist on New Year, New You

      A New Twist on New Year, New You

      As new year draws closer, many begin to consider setting new goals - although this may prove to be difficult with the unpredictability of 2021 due to continuous COVID-19 restrictions.

      Due to the uncertainty of 2021, avoid being too ambitious when setting goals as these are less likely to be achieved. It's no good setting a goal to join a gym, if they aren't open!

      If we expect too much, we are likely to feel exhausted at the thought of even starting any New Year's resolutions.

      This year, I want to challenge you to a new kind of new year’s resolution – one that focuses on physical changes combined with long term small key changes for maximum health benefits. If you can make this simple transition, all of the physical changes are sure to come. Here are 4 you can focus on:

      1. Drink Shrinking Tea AM blend for maximum fat burning, its the best tea to help you lose weight and blast belly fat, because we need a reason to drink more tea... Who doesn’t love a good cup of tea? In fact tea is the nations favourite drink, and a staggering 165 million cups are drunk a day. On top of being comforting and delicious another reason to love tea is that our Shrinking Tea AM blend can actually help you lose weight. A caffeine free alternative to black tea, with a sweet, delicate and rich, earthy flavour. Drunk black it’s calorie free! Shrinking Tea AM blend contains polyphenols, including flavonoids, which are directly linked to combatting obesity. Also including aspalathin which shows a significant reduction in the amount of fat stored over time and which helps to rid the body of free radicals. Aspalathin in our Shrinking Tea is considered a “magic ingredient” among weight watchers.
      2. Tap your toes - Boost your health by (no joke) tapping your toes. You've heard of "sitting disease," and how our desk-bound days can be bad for our health. Well, researchers at the University of Missouri recently discovered that simply fidgeting can reduce the arterial damage that happens from spending too much time on your derrière. In the study, healthy men and women were asked to intermittently tap one foot, while keeping the other one still. After three hours, they compared the blood flow in each leg and found that the fidgeting one showed improved vascular function, while the stationary leg was worse off. Other recent research found fidgeting mitigated the increased risk of death from sitting too much. Of course, actual exercise is still better at keeping you healthy, but considering that the average person sits 15 hours a day, a little fidgeting could have very real benefits as well. We recommend massaging your legs morning and night with our Shrinking Violet Cellulite Oil, which will visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite and aid in helping you lose inches. It’s natural ingredients like Lavender Essential oil calming and toning the skin too.
      3. Eat breakfast every day - Research shows dieters are more successful at losing weight - and keeping it off - when they eat breakfast. If you don't already eat breakfast, start. If you are already a breakfast eater, try eating the same breakfast multiple days each week. Repeating the same meals can help you shed pounds, according to research. We recommend our Shrinking Shake to eat yourself slim. It's also portable and ready in less than 5 minutes take it right out of the door with you, so forget about using any "I don't have time for breakfast" excuses. Start your morning off with this Shrinking Shake that is healthy, delicious and super quick to make, its also dairy-free and vegan with zero refined sugar. Super filling Shrinking Shake is thick and creamy with such a delicious texture that’s different from your typical shake because it’s blended with the best natural ingredients like oats which are a gluten free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants, cinnamon for its power effects on health and metabolism, ground flaxseeds which adds a delicious nutty flavour. Flaxseeds are a great source of protein and fibre, as well as a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Add a banana for a great source of fibre and protein meaning it's really delicious and a healthy way to start your day. It also couldn’t be any easier to throw together too. Your children will love this as well!
      4. SlimBathe - who doesn’t want to slim and bathe? Relax every evening whilst taking a bath in our SlimBathe, a hot bath burns as many calories as working out, taking a hot bath burns about 140 calories and also can lower peak blood sugar after eating by 10 percent more than exercise can! We are in!!! This combined with the clinically proven SlimBathe for maximum inch loss is a win win. SlimBathe is a luxurious duo infused with the magic of Shrinking Violet. Relax in a hot bath with the aroma of lavender and geranium essential oils. SlimBathe contains a rich blend of natural ingredients and skin toners to eliminate that fat! After your SlimBathe apply the oil to problem areas for extra results as the solution helps smooth and refine those stubborn areas. Also don’t forget to drink your Shrinking Tea PM blend to stimulate weight loss as you sleep, also aiding the body to get rid of toxins, excess water and aid in restful sleep.

        It will be a different kind of New Year; and we give thanks for the friendship and connections. To our wonderful customers and industry colleagues, we look forward to a brighter and better 2021.

        Lots more exciting things are coming our way but in the meantime, stay safe and well, stay connected, but most of all, stay kind.

      I Dropped A Dress Size In An Hour

      I Dropped A Dress Size In An Hour

      Drop a dress size without breaking a sweat! Yes please! Losing inches and saving pounds I’m in, so when I saw Shrinking Violet Home Kit with an 20% off discount, I didn’t hesitate. These professional body wraps in beauty salons are around £80-99 each, the Shrinking Violet Home Kit was 10 full body wraps for £99. Absolute bargain!

      Dress size from a 16 to a 14!!!

      My Shrinking Violet Home Kit arrived and I could not wait to try it! I was advised by the customer care team at Tibby Olivier that:

      "The best way to achieve optimum results with Shrinking Violet Home Kit is by heat transfer, so we recommend always shaking the oil well before use, pour a capful in a warm bath and once dry but still warm from the bath then reapply 15-20ml to the whole body, massaging in very well and then put on the Shrinky suit.” The measuring cup is supplied in the kit.

      I preferred to lie in bed and watch tv under a duvet for an hour, after the hour I took off the shrinky suit and massaged any residue into the skin. I preferred to do this ‪around 7pm as I stay in bed and watch tv afterwards. Keeping warm. Showering lightly the morning after. I start by applying Shrinking Violet Slimming Solution from my double chin down to my ankles and massaging in well everywhere - it works better as a full body system. 

      I was advised not to have over indulged on food or alcohol before you give yourself the treatment, so your liver is not already over processing, no heavy meals or alcohol the night before and eat a light macrobiotic diet on the day, limit caffeine and no alcohol.

      I had eaten Shrinking Oats as a banana smoothie for breakfast and Shrinking Oats as porridge with fruit for lunch, I also sipped Shrinking Tea all day for a fat burning boost! Then had a healthy chicken salad for dinner.

      I measured myself before and after, with the tape measure provided in the kit, marking my body with a sharpie pen so I could remeasure afterwards exactly where I had measured before. I recorded my measurements on the client record cards provided. 

      The results from the first Shrinking Violet Home Kit session were an amazing 28 inches lost! I was blown away and I felt so slim the morning after, I performed the obligatory jeans test and yes my favourite jeans now fit perfectly, I previously was struggling to get them up my legs never mind fasten them!

      The Shrinking Violet Home Kit works best as a course of treatments, and combined with a healthy eating plan, I particularly enjoyed the Shrinking Oats and the ebook I received with lots of recipes in, which I am shocked at, as the oats made me feel really full all day, this is something I will continue daily, I loved the Shrinking Tea AM blend and will also start to combine this in my daily routine from now on, back to the Shrinking Violet Home Kit, which contains 10 full body treatments which are recommended for maximum impact. However if you’re short of time and for a last minute fix I’d totally recommend this and as you can see from my results, even a solitary session can make a significant difference. I’ve had all 10 now, have loved them all and have felt an immediate difference. After my most recent one I had to buy new smaller size jeans, my waist disappearing so rapidly. Combined with healthy eating I am now nearly a size 12, when I started I was a bulging size 16, thrilled is an understatement. 

      So whether you want a quick fix for a particular night out or a long term goal, Shrinking Violet Home Kit really gave me the boost I needed to start and stay on a healthy eating plan. I would highly recommend, in fact I would give Shrinking Violet Home Kit a 5* review. 

      64% of people unaware of blue light impact on skin

      64% of people unaware of blue light impact on skin

      Two in three (64%) people are unaware of the effect that blue light can have on their skin, has been found.

      We want to help people “beat the screen blues” by raising awareness of the negative impact that blue light has on skin – not just on our faces, but on the rest of the body too. Our Blue Venom anti-aging range has powerful & effective anti-ageing Protection with Blue Light Technology and Bee Venom.

      With 60% of people now spending more than six hours a day in front of a digital device, five working days can have the same impact on the skin as spending 25 minutes in midday sun without any protection.

      How blue light effects skin health

      The blue light emitted from screens not only affects the skin but can also disturb our biological clocks. Blue light can penetrate the skin far deeper that UV light, passing through the epidermis and dermis to the subcutis layer.

      It can induce both immediate and persistent pigmentation, which can still be present after three months. In addition, these rays can inhibit melatonin generation, increase stress hormone levels, and excite nerves, which in turn disturbs sleeping pattern and circadian rhythm. 30 hours of exposure to blue light from smartphone or laptop screens can increase the inflammation level in skin cells by 40%.

      “Long-term exposure to blue light has the potential to have a significant negative impact on people’s wellbeing, and we’re concerned people are simply unaware of the risks. It is highly likely that exposure to blue light has increased this year, as many previously office-based workers have increased their time in front of a screen, as face-to-face meetings have moved to virtual. People should be looking for skincare products loaded with antioxidants, as well as blue light protecting actives as found in our Blue Venom range. Limiting screen time also helps, not only for our overall skin health, but our general wellbeing too.

      "Across the world experts work to bring science and innovation insights to products which benefit people’s health and wellbeing, and we have a duty to let people know how best to protect themselves from the impact of blue light exposure.”

      How to Beat the Screen Blues

      To protect against blue light, We recommend using our Blue Venom anti-ageing products which include ingredients that minimise or neutralise blue light, as well as restore skin. Blue Venom skincare collection is a unique blend of Blue Light Technology and Bee Venom. Our Blue Venom range is high-performance skincare. Suited to anyone looking for an advanced skin care range, targeting the multiple signs of ageing combined with blue light protecting actives. Bee Venom works in synergy with a unique complex of plant stem cells combined in our unique blue light protection helping to restore conditions of chronological ageing and digital pollution, with hyper-pigmentation as the most visible effect, especially in darker skin types. The healthy-glow effect restored and the complexion radiance revived; a double deep formula that is then enhanced by Bee Venom helping to smooth out and also plump out fine lines and wrinkles, giving that immediate anti-ageing effect and lift.


      Shrinking Violet Body Wrap! Review

      Shrinking Violet Body Wrap! Review

      The lovely team at Shrinking Violet were kind enough to let me try out and review for myself their new product, which I think is on its way to revolutionising the weight loss world! Before I get into what the body wrap does lets talk about the packaging! I must  say I am a sucker for pretty packaging which looks clean and crisp and not too OTT. When I got this out of the box it came in I was so delighted with the look and feel of it ♥ Purple is such a pretty colour and the box cover felt so smooth and looked so neat, it did have a ribbon with tape measure detail on it but I was so excited I opened it before the photos 🙂
      What is it?
      The shrinking violet wrap is basically what it says! It is a wrap, well in this case a suit that you put on with the solution included which helps you to loose weight and get rid of bad toxins!  It is that easy right!? Yes indeed it is, you simply rub on the solution given to any areas that you think are a problem to you, pop on the suit and wait! You leave it on for up to an hour and can sit still, exercise and go about your daily business…..just remember to put the suit on AFTER the postman comes otherwise you may get some strange looks haha
      The suit helps to increase your body temperature which in turn helps you to sweat out the toxins and in effect lose weight a little at a time. The box includes a tape measure and measurement cards, so before you start do measure yourself and keep note to record how much you have lost! After my first time I saw immediate results and lost 3cm in some areas and 1cm in others! You also leave the solution on for 72 hours after rubbing it in your skin to see even further results!
      All the information is included in the booklet, with questions and answers. The solution smells so wonderful, a strong lavender smell which reminds me of relaxing!
      Does it work?

      The thing with all weight loss products that you must remember everyone is different so what works for one person may not work for another. Also it isnt' a thing where you can sit in the shrinky suit and eat burgers and fries and expect to lose weight. With anything it takes mental dedication in wanting to improve yourself but I think what is great about this is it helps to cleanse your body in a healthy way with you doing as little or as much as you want. Keeping hydrated is always important and using this product is a great way to keep on top of this as you are losing sweat and need to keep hydrated.

      For me it did work with immediate results, even it was only a little decrease in weight! For the best results it is recommended you take the 90 day challenge which I am looking to do and see what results I get then!
      I have read it can take up to 6 inches off your body!
      If you are really serious about weight loss and the health of your body I would really recommend this. Even if you are on a shake diet or reducing your meals I think this could be the next step.
      Much love

      Shrinking Violet Body Wrap Kit: First Impressions

      Shrinking Violet Body Wrap Kit: First Impressions

      Body wraps have been around for a while, offering a “quick fix” to losing inches on problem areas, making you skinnier in seconds. I’ve never been a true believer in them. They may shave the inches temporarily, but, in my opinion, the only real way to effectively lose weight permanently is maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and regular exercise.

      But, my theories were tested when Shrinking Violet sent me their home edition body wrap kitto review.

      The kit contains an oil to apply to ‘problem areas’, a measuring cup, tape measure, a sheet to record your measurements and the extremely trendy shrinky suit.

      Basically, you apply one cup of the oil to wherever you want to target, be it your legs stomach, arms etc, then you slip in to the shrinky suit and let it work it’s magic for one hour. You can either carry on with your day (I probably wouldn’t pop to the shops in it), or you can do a workout while wearing it.

      The shrinky suit helps raise the body temperature, which apparently helps the solution get to work breaking down fat cells and increasing sweat excretion (attractive).

      I have to say I was pretty warm wearing the shrinky suit and I just decided I’d wear it while watching celebrity big brother! Either the suit really does generate more body heat or Stevi Ritchie’s hip thrusting was really getting me hot under the collar. Let’s go with the shrinky suit works…

      Honestly, I didn’t feel like it was doing anything except making me a bit warm, so when I removed the suit after an hour, I was surprised to find a 1 inch loss around my stomach.

      The instructions say the oil will have soaked into your skin and will continue to work on breaking down fat cells over the next 24 hours so I was intrigued to see if I lost any more. But I didn’t. I have remained at 1 inch smaller though, which is a positive!

      You can use this kit every 7 days and I have a month’s supply, so I’m going to follow up this post with a final review after I’ve used the whole kit to see whether it really made a difference, but so far, so good!

      The Shrinking Violet Home Edition Body Wrap Kit is £129.
