What Is Jungle Juice???

Right, so now that I am a mommy, I’m going through more things than just finding out the latest beauty products, tricks and tips. Motherhood goes beyond that. It’s now whats best for your child, and of course yourself. How on earth can a mother look after her child if she doesn’t look after herself first.

So if you’re a mommy, you know or have heard of jungle juice, haven’t you?  It’s a ‘magic’ potion you drink to improve your milk production. Although on La Leche League (LLL) groups, they’ll tell you it holds no evidence that it does, HOWEVER, too many mommies say it has worked for them. So I’m testing it… And in my honest opinion it is working. But I have to also say that I’m topping up with formula. This is a personal choice, as my milk took a while to come in. I feel it’s due to the fact I had a c-section. I have however noticed my milk is coming in more with this juice while expressing. So my boy is having less formula.. so yay!

Now it could be just be the fact I’m drinking a whole lot of liquids which lets face it, is what really helps with milk production. But with all the ingredients one mixes, it could only be helping really.

INGREDIENTS:

2 litres water, room temperature or cold.
1 litre apple juice
1 sachet rehidrat (available at a pharmacy)
± 10 drops per litre of juice of Rescue drops (available at a pharmacy)
60ml blackthorn berry elixir (available at a pharmacy)

METHOD:

  1. Mix it all together in a large bottle ± 5 litre bottle and drink it all up within two days.


WHAT IS REHIDRAT?
Oral electrolyte mixture for the treatment of dehydration.

WHAT IS RESCUE DROPS?
A homeopathic-flower essence combination complementary medicine of the use of shock, anxiety, fear, grief and recurrent insomnia due to stress.

WHAT IS BLACKTHORN BERRY ELIXIR?
This elixir is ideal for restoring the body’s natural balance after periods of exhaustion, pressure or illness.
Reducing fatigue and increasing vitality.
Pregnant and breastfeeding woman and after confinement. Ideal for the whole family.


So if you’re breastfeeding, I suggest trying Jungle Juice out. So far, so good. I definitely approve.

Manly Manicure Monday with Sorbet MAN

Listen up gents – Sorbet don’t only favour the fairer sex, they think you deserve some grooming too and because of this they have launched their male-only grooming emporium. Think beards, think musky smells, think all things manly – they’ve got you covered.

Sorbet launched their very first man-porium in September 2014 in Sandton City and are now following suit with opening the next in the chain line – a store in Bedfordview at Village View Shopping Centre. Sorbet Man

They understand looking good is not always as easy as the woke-up-like-this that you guys pull off so well and sometimes need some added grooming. Don’t think of it as a salon, think of it as a way to accentuate your manly ways with an added touch of polished perfection. They do not want the treatments to be seen as flash but they want their guests to feel relaxed, not intimidated and invited in a discerning manner.

The treatments on offer range from facials for tip-top skin care, to hair colour treatments, massages and “Man Plan” packages including the flagship, The 19th Hole: haircut, hot towel shave and a manicure. All of their treatments include complimentary whiskey, espresso and WIFI.

Sorbet MAN stocks internationally renown brands like Dermalogica, Blue Beards, Redken and KST.

If Sorbet is good enough to keep the ladies in your life looking on point there is no reason why Sorbet cannot make you feel good about your skin, hair and overall well being.

For more information on Sorbet MAN, check out Sorbet’s website.

Ladies, you are welcome to spoil the men in your life easily; and no worries, you’re welcome gentleman! 😉

#GOODY BAG – WHAT DID I GET FROM THE KRYOLAN/EDL Hair & Beauty LAUNCH PARTY?

On the 24th January 2015 I attended the EDL Hair & Beauty Studio on Lynnwood and KRYOLAN launch party.

It was a fabulous affair indeed, there was lights, cameras and a lot of glamorous action.

We were surrounded with champagne, delicacies, music, photographers, sexy cars, people, celebs of course and so much more.  The EDL store was open for business and tours for anyone at the launch.  The owners Natalie & Esidio Camara and Elaine & Danny de Lima can be extremely proud of what they’ve achieved with this salon.  Across the board is the consensus that this salon is totally different to any other in South Africa.  It is a clean, refreshing, vibrant, professional space with that European feeling, as it’s situated right next to AROMA.

You will always see the owners, manager,  the professional artists, hair stylists, nail and beauty therapists there.  Ready to make you feel very special.

Towards the end of the evening, some of us lucky women received a gift bag with lots of goodies in.   The items were:

Guest Contribution : Foods for Fit and Fab Health

Have you for long craved a good health? Are you always at the doctor’s because your body is a frequent target of diseases? Well, there is a big possibility you have not been that careful on the choices of foods you make as part of your daily diet. The poor health that has kept you agonizing for a long time could become a long-gone memory if you put the following foods in your shopping list every time you hit the supermarket.

APPLES APPLES

Apples can be quite expensive compared to other fruits but they are among the most important pieces you missed in your daily meal. Apples fight signs of ageing by providing anti-oxidants to your body. The antioxidants found in apples are known as polyphenols and are thought to increase lifespan.

FISH FISH

One of the biggest sources of protein in the world is fish. Salt-water fish, to be specific, are the most consumed and are arguably the healthiest. Overfishing has really had an effect on the availability of fish lately, but you can still afford to obtain one once or twice a week. The best thing about fish is that, unlike cattle, they do not eat foods raised with chemicals and fertilizers.

MUSHROOMS MUSHROOMS

Mushrooms are rich in iron and proteins. They are also important in raising the immune system of your body and defend it from infections. Mushrooms have also been found to be able to fight some diseases such as breast cancer and are also becoming very important in the manufacture of medicines. Be aware of poisonous mushrooms though.
