Lifestyle Tips That Will Make You Gorgeous!

Lifestyle goes hand in hand with beauty. Don’t believe me? Well, what you eat, how you live your life and the products you use all optimise how gorgeous you can look and feel. Our skin is like a mirror: it reflects what’s going on inside. Blemishes, dry patches and aging skin are often related to bad lifestyle choices that lead to dietary toxins. It’s these toxins – and we all have them – that ruin the way our body and skin behaves from day to day. Even if you look great now – you have no idea how much better your skin, hair and body (in general) could look. I’m going to give you 3 sure- fire ways to maximise your beauty just by tiny alterations to your lifestyle.

Cherie’s Ultimate Lifestyle Tips (Part One) -

1. What You Should Eat: I’m not going to say ‘eat healthier’ because I’m sure you have heard that a thousand times. Not only is it tough to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle on a constant basis, it’s also extremely dull picturing your future on carrot sticks and water. I could tell you that a lifestyle centred around tomatoes, lemons, watercress and berries would benefit you since they are amazing skin boosters – and I’d be telling the truth – but I’m sure you want a quicker and easier way to becoming smoking hot. So, instead, I offer you the exact ingredients necessary to get gorgeous, radiant skin… fast and also where to get them.

Firstly, my all time favourite – Organic Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend 500ml. I absolutely swear by this. I wish I had Dr Udo’s personal email so I could tell him I love him! It’s simple, you pop a tablespoon of it into your smoothie or water and half an hour later, your skin feels like you have borrowed Aphrodite’s face for the day. Your skin is so soft and I have even experienced dry patches clearing up like magic. Plus, it has a full array of total wellness benefits that work alongside the beauty aspect, so if you want to find out how it can help to make you gorgeous – get a bottle. It is a ‘must – have’ in my life for sure.

Buy Spirulina. My uncle Justin – who has been at so many world class seminars on nutrition and lifestyle – has spent a fortune finding out what works and what doesn’t (especially when it comes to looking amazing.) One time, when I was at his house, he put this green powder into my fruit juice. I was horrified, I didn’t want to touch it never mind actually eat it! But, the truth is, Spirulina is very mild tasting, almost refreshing on the tongue. Plus, it just happens to be one of the most naturally nutrient rich foods on earth.

Spirulina has the most remarkable concentration of working nutrients ever known in any food, plant, grain or herb. It actually contains ALL of the essential amino acids and so is described as a ‘complete protein. Within minutes of eating it, you get a noticeable burst of energy (which I found made my face look instantly radiant.) It’s really unbelievable and has increased my quality of life on so many levels. After all, what you put inside your body is reflected in the health and beauty outside of it. I buy the organic powder only (don’t buy the tablets because the absorption rate is lower in tablet form) .

If you buy these two skin savers as part of a reasonable lifestyle, you are already half way there to your beauty transformation.

2. What you should drink – What I am about to say will make you groan in the same fashion as when your mother told you to clean your room but unfortunately it’s so true that I have to mention it.

It’s Water. Yes, boring I know… but honestly, since I started drinking just under 2 litres a day, my skin glows like I’m in love. It’s such simple addition to your lifestyle and yet I find it more effective than any cream. Water plumps out the skin, flushes away imperfections and keeps your skin hydrated and smooth. I also find that adding a slice of lemon to it is even more potent, with faster results. I didn’t start on two litres but trust me, make an effort and as your water intake increases, so will your confidence.

3.Make your own face mask/skin tonic

Let me tell you something – creams with “extract of…” (fill the blank) are usually complete rubbish. Unless they are organic, you are going to get a whole catalogue of chemicals that over time will actually cause you skin problems and damage your body. Get the right cost effective natural ingredients and you will see better results for longer, all while saving some money.

Here is the really simple miracle tonic that I started using a few years ago when I had horrific skin problems. My lifestyle consisted of work, work and did I mention work? I was run down and my skin knew it. Pimples, dryness, you name it – I had it. I was even using cream for months that the doctor prescribed but it never worked. This mask, without exaggeration, cleared up my skin and made it soft and more youthful in 6 hours!

You will need: 1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil 5 tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar 10 tbsp Green Tea (To make a scrub, add sugar until thick and 1 tsp honey)

Mix it up, dab it on with a cotton pad, leave it alone. Wake up in the morning a goddess. Perfect.

If you add the above products to your lifestyle, I guarantee that in a very short time you will wonder how you ever lived without them. I feel truly gorgeous after I have used these tips and I know that you will also.

Have a wonderfully radiant day,
Cherie

How Will Fuel Prices Affect Your Travel Plans?

There are many business owners in the hospitality industry who are getting nervous about the possibility of a lean time over the summer season as more people are deciding to change their travel plans due to the increasing cost of travel.

We are already seeing the affect that the increased price of fuel is having and this, coupled with the difficulty many people have faced with their mortgages has made cost cutting a necessity.

People are more inclined to have vacations closer to home and use the money that they have saved from the reduced fuel bill to enjoy local activities.

For many businesses in the hospitality industry, this is the time of the year when they have to earn the majority of their income and to have the cost of a barrel of oil to pass the $127 mark is bad news for their summer season.

Not only do they have to contend with the possibility of less occupancy but they also have the added costs that are associated with any area of their business that requires freight.

So how will your travel plans be affected by the increase in the price of fuel?

If you are like many people who are trying to stay within their budget then your travel plans might need to be considered too.

Maybe it is time to look closer at sharing transport with others and the costs associated with that travel.

The budget minded person could find that this will not only save on the fuel bill but add a new and fun dimension to their holiday plans.

What Are Some Risks and Issues Around My Company Setting Up a Customer Finance-Leasing Program?

Many firms benefit significantly from either setting up on their own or partnering with a third part to set up a customer financing program for their products. Key benefits are increased sales, cash flow, customer loyalty, etc.But are there also some risks for the company to be aware of also – Of course there are and let’s look at some of those risks.We would also point out that these risks are in fact the same ones taken on by independent leasing firms also.Foremost from a risk perspective is that fact the customer financing program will be viewed by the customers as the one and same as your company. Therefore customer service and financing ability are in fact now part of your firm’s reputation.Companies may also find that the borrowing costs to set up a program are in fact higher than their normal business operating costs. Naturally the method in which the finance division is set up also affects the debt levels of your company. No business wants to fail because it took on higher debt in an effort to in fact help their customers!On a long term basis company lenders might view your firms foray into customer financing as an additional risk factor, which they might try to compensate on by imposing restrictions such as additional covenants, requests for more equity into the firm, etc. The bottom line is simply that setting up a customer financing scenario may in fact affect your own firm’s ability to borrow.If your firm is larger then analysts and firms looking at your firm might in fact be raising issues and perceptions around which business you are actually in, i.e. your products, or the financing of those products. Business owners and financial managers will always want to ensure that ultimately they are sticking to their core business model and philosophies. If your firm becomes too enamored by financing you possibly run the risk of total business failure. There are numerous cases in financial history where firms collapsed because of the shenanigans of the finance division.We have heard the term in business ‘sticking to our knitting’, which of course simply means that management needs unique skills to run a business, and those skills are different in financing. Owners and managers related to the customer financing division must have strong skills in financial sales, structuring, and credit… Naturally we are also inferring that additional skilled personnel ultimately must be hired.No company every wants to look back in hindsight and say that if failed or stumbled because efforts and funds went into financing, as opposed to r&d, marketing, staff, and product growth. Do not let a customer finance program become an obstacle to your ultimate business successBusiness owners should ensure that there is good communications between the main operating company and the customer financing division – clear goals and philosophies should be set out re the function of such a customer finance program.In summary the benefits of offering financing to your customer are very obvious, and proven true by some of the largest and most successful companies in the world – but all you have to do is to do it right! Ensure your firm is aware of the risks and challenges and monitor your customer financing program on an ongoing basis to ensure you are not straying from your core business model.
