JUNE ISSUE

PHENOMENAL LIVING

LUXURY LIFESTYLES - LIMITLESS LIVING


JUNE 2016

Welcome to the June edition of Phenomenal Living. I hope you all enjoyed May's extra long travel edition (and April’s special Paris edition). I was so inspired by all the destinations, that I went ahead and booked my summer holiday immediately! And it's gonna be a hot one. I will report back on my adventures at the end of the summer.

Over the last few weeks, I have had to take some much needed relaxation due to poor health, so I decided to take care of that business and not just the lap top kind. We all know that our health is of course the mechanics of the machine, so taking care of the business of 'self' is absolutely key. If you want to be phenomenal in any other area of your life, then you need to ‘feed the machine’ first right. And feed it well! That’s the phenomenal way. So this month it seemed apt to do less and focus on some of life’s simple little luxuries that help us to relax, take stock and eventually get us back to our phenomenal selves. If you want a phenomenal summer, then taking care of you, inside and out, is the only way to go.

As always, I like to share things here that I think will enhance all our lives in some way, so if it is something that motivates, educates, decorates, inspires, enhances or indulges you in some way, then that it is totally phenomenal and will find a place in our Hot picks section on this page. After all, it's all about bringing things into our lives that lift us up and make us feel good right?. So whether you want a little luxury living or a spiritually enhanced existence, Phenomenal Living is here to offer you a ready made list of cool products, places and events that will do just that. We are all about ‘growing into our greater selves’ and therefore what we choose to do and who we choose to do it with, is of upmost importance. We live by this motto everyday. But remember, even when life forces you to take a step backwards, or restricts your flow from continuing in the direction you had hoped for, it is simply the universes way of helping you to take time for yourself. You may be forced take a back seat for a while and to sit in silence, but it is simply so that you can listen completely to the lesson you are being taught. For there is absolutely a lesson in there somewhere. The deepest learning in life comes in silence and when you are tuly listening. Let silence be your guide.

So why not take some time this month to kick back a little, indulge, relax, listen and just enjoy being a simpler version of you? It truly feels good to honour and respect yourself with this time. No excuses, just make it happen! I shall definitely be doing it, of course in my pretty silk PJ’s, in-between a good read, a glass of champagne of course and a much needed rejuvenating massage! You see there is also glamour in simplicity. I know Mademoiselle Chanel would agree with that, so that makes it twice as phenomenal. Enjoy your month ahead everyone and see you all in July.


FASHION & BEAUTY

AGENT PROVOCATEUR    Phenomenal Women take pride in their nightwear too and what better way to feel phenomenal in your down time than in Pure silk pyjamas.  With a classic twenties feel, these gorgeous and sexy glam PJ's from Agent Provocateur are definitely on my list this year.

The scent is divine and will leave not just you, but the bathroom and beyond smelling good enough to eat.  (Also available from House of Fraser, John Lewis, Sephora and space NK).   PW top bath tip : Try adding a few drops of aromatherapy oil to your bath at night. My favourite combo is Lavender, Peppermint and rose oil. Relaxing and refreshing at the same time and again,  everything will smell divine.

Summer Fiction

Summer Fiction

"Eligible," by Curtis Sittenfeld.
As a motivational coach, writer, literary graduate and general lover of all books, I read an awful lot. I especially love the collection of books I choose each year for my easy reading holiday season. This year, I'm super excited that my fiction choice is "Eligible," a modern day adaptation of my favourite british novel "Pride & Prejudice."

Here is a retelling of the Jane Austen classic, but in this version the Bennet family find themselves in modern day New York faced with unemploeyment, reality tv stars and neurosurgeons. This adaptation adopts a contmeporary take on the idea of 'hooking a husband, so if you're a fan of the original story, then this might just be an interesting and fun read for your beach holiday this year too.

Theatre

Theatre

A new and expanded Tate Modern museum finally opens this month. Be among the first to see it by getting involved with a three-day celebration launch showcasing the very best of modern art. Oh and it's open to everyone for free. Phenomenal behaviour.
The museums director, David Serota says that, “The new Tate Modern offers a rich variety of experiences to visitors and gives opportunities to artists to explore new ways of making and showing their work. It is a very different type of museum building … what we need is to reinvent not just the definition of what a museum is and who it is for and what we do, but also what it feels like.”

With free exhibits and celebrations in full swing, why not head down to Bankside from 17-19th June and join the party. (Click pic for more info).

Breakfast at Tiffany's is now being served at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. Currently on a UK tour, the iconic 1940's film (staring the phenomenal Audrey Hepburn) has been given a new lease of life as a stage play with music and hits London on 30th June. Award winning songstress Pixie Lott stars as the loveable heroine Hollie Golightly and features songs from the era, as well as original music. We just can't wait to get our glad rags on and go and enjoy this wonderful story all over again.

This month also sees the opening of the magical musical Aladdin and West End Live in Leicester Square on June 18th and 19th. Showcasing phenomenal performances from all the top West End shows, it's not to be missed. http://www.aladdinthemusical.co.uk

LUXURY LIVING

The greatest luxury is to service the self - Mind, Body and Soul, so this month we are focused on just one key luxury that will boost your health all round and leave you feeling phenomenally refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to rock the world. Massage! One of the worlds oldest natural therapy's that we should all incorporate into our lives.

WHY MASSAGE?

When stress shows up in physical ways, it is our body warning us that our sytem is not happy and is quite simply attacking itself. Recent studies have shown that at least 85% of all disease, illness and physical pain is directly related to stress induced factors, so doesn't it make sense to do something about that? When you know that high levels of stress are limiting your power, doesn't it make sense to make an effort to proper take time out and focus on positive ways to manage and reduce the levels of stress in your life? If you want to improve your overall level of wellbeing, pin pointing your stressors should be your first point of call. When our bodies get wildly out of sync, the nervous systems starts failing us and we are put under a physical pressure that if not taken care of, will lead us down the slippery path to illness. Thankfully, one sure fire way to reboot the nervous system and to make sure our inner mechanics are working at optimum level again is of course to induldge in a stimulating form of massage.

This is not just a lovely luxury, but actually a necessity. Studies have shown that people who partake in regular massage have healthier nervous systems, functioning organs and great circulation (which of course is also great for the skin and that outer glow we all desire to have on a daily basis). A stimulating massage, be it swiss, aromatherapy, hot and cold stone or physio based, all enable the body to function at optimum levels and therefore be healthy enough to live out the lives we desire. You wouldn't run a car on empty would you, so why let stress attack you? why work on empty without stopping to fill up? So whether your system is letting you down or you just need an instant pick me up, go ahead, be kind to yourself and schedule in some time out for a well needed, rejuvenating massage. I'm off for one of my favourites this week with a hot & cold stone massage and a dose of reflexology. A phenomenally perfect way to boost the week ahead.

Take some time out yourself this week to truly listen to your body and deliver what it needs through healthy eating, meditation, exercise and of course, the luxury of a fabulous massage. Whatever type of massage you choose, be blessed and enjoy.
