National Sunscreen Day

It's National Sunscreen Day! A day to remind us how important it is to wear SPF and reapply every 2-3 hours. Not alone does it protect skin against sunburn but also reduces the appearance of sun damage, dark spots, discolouration & wrinkles.

Gardening with Aideen - 12 Veg 12 Weeks

Aideen is involved with a lovely new vegetable growing project in association with GIY (Grow It Yourself).  This project is open to trainees to grow their very own vegetable garden from home.  Trainees will be sent out seeds for carrots, beetroot, salad, tomatoes etc.  You don't need a lot of space and can easily sow the seeds in a container.  There is also a 12 week tutorial to help you every step of the way.  What a lovely way to spend your days when at home and you will have some delicious veg to enjoy in the end. 😋  For more info go to
