2017 Platinum Awards – SKINCARE AND BEAUTY – Guidelines for Entering

medichecks_logo_cmykWe are excited that it’s AWARDS time of year again and thrilled that Medichecks are our premier sponsor this year as we believe it’s so important to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing.

Here’s where you can see our judges line-up and general info 

Skincare and beauty is always a big category for us. Our judges love trying out new products – Zoe Ball and Carrie Grant were blown away by the fabulous products last year, so much so that they wanted to judge again this year. We welcome everything from moisturisers, facial oils, through body care products, haircare and of course makeup – don’t worry about needing to specify as we will decide on sub category.

I’m often asked what is the criteria, well my brand is ‘imperfectly natural’ so if your product is 100 per cent organic, that’s great, but we also appreciate that not everything can be, so we welcome a range, as a general rule we would advise not to enter products that contain large numbers of synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrance, sodium laurel sulphates, the usual suspects! We will also take into consideration your packaging, and ethical stance.

We encourage you to get your fans and customers voting for you – readers votes go into the mix too!

Inspirational Entrepreneurs Share Their Words of Wisdom

To celebrate International Women’s day I asked some amazing entrepreneurial women about their journey. What do these inspirational women (and me!) want you to know?

janey-lee-grace-450x450I’d urge all women to write a loving note to their younger self, what would you like a younger version of you to know?  I was asked to do this for an author compiling a book and as I looked back on myself as an insecure young woman with no idea of my own strengths, I actually wanted to give her a hug!  We can’t travel back in time, and what matters is the present but it’s quite cathartic to look how far you’ve come and give yourself a pat on the back for just how wonderful you really are.  I also used to be envious of other women who were powerful and talented, I’ve since embraced that wonderful statement – Her success is not your failure!  Together we are stronger, when women focus on kindness and work for the greater good magic happens.

All ships rise in high tide!

taryn-headshot-e1486639686343-1Sufficient preparation and knowledge will almost definitely result in your business being a success. Producing a business plan was hard work and subsequent real life bore very little resemblance to the plan, but without it I would have had no compass with which to make the changes that were and still are needed every day.

Embrace and learn from the challenges you come up against and the mistakes you make and use them to help anticipate and tackle similar problems. There were many days when I saw no way forward from problems I was experiencing but those days are now mostly behind me and I’m still moving ahead. Don’t give up and don’t lose your head. Think it through, make a mini plan and interact with people. Repeat until the issue is resolved.

Stay on top of your industry, never stop learning, listen to and take advice from other people and ask lots of questions. I attend webinars and expos, read industry publications, keep my skills updated, follow experts in different areas of business and keep an eye out for suitable collaborations.

Don’t do things against your ethics for benefit of your business, if it’s not right, change it and have the confidence to remain true to yourself and your beliefs.

Taryn Rule, Director of Umundu Ltd – UK Distributor of Africology Skincare

 

janet_jones_portraitBe yourself. Never try to be what others want you to be, as the wheels will come off one day. Celebrate being a woman and see the strength in your tenderness – it is not a weakness, remember, you are as young and beautiful as you will ever be. Don’t waste your time wishing it were different. Be at peace and live in the moment as it is the only one you have, but most of all, find happiness in being the person you are.’

Janet Jones, Coach and author – The Happiness Millionaire

 

louise-allen-brand-photo-2Life is a journey, some days will always be better than others, the days when you try to be someone else, live by pleasing others, will always be the days that will be challenging.

KNOW THYSELF are the 2 little words I would have given to my younger self daily. It doesn’t matter that your feel so deeply, it doesn’t mean you’re dramatic or weird, it is a gift – it means you can connect deeply in relationships, which gives you a deeper reflection of yourself.

You don’t need to do it alone, though sometimes you might feel like you are alone. Reach out for help, vulnerability is your strength. Forgive, forgive, and forgive again. You may never forget, but for your own sake, forgive. And try to forget.

Laugh more, don’t take life too seriously, one person cannot save the world, do not be the rescuer, you are not responsible to heal everyone – when you shine your light you simply allow others to do the same. Be true to your own heart, do not seek counsel and take time to connect with your soul. Honour the seasons and live in tune with what they have to teach you.

Catch any criticism or judgement of yourself and replace it with a loving positive thought of how well you are doing. Finally, be in joy in all you do, emotions are our natural sign posts, they won’t let you down, and will lead you to live an authentic passionate life.

Love is the highest vibration there is, through loving yourself first, you will love everything and everybody next naturally – which automatically floods out to the whole and rises the vibration of all you meet.

Louise Allen, founder of Rhythm of Beauty

 

tvmaggieheadshotsmaller300dpi-1If you are launching a business ONLY pick something you are really passionate about, you will need that heart thumping passion to keep you going when times get tough!

Don’t be super woman! – ask for help, delegate, take expert advice.  In the beginning, I did everything myself – graphics, accounts, marketing, social media etc. to ‘save money’ but that really is a false economy. For example, when I started Turmerlicious I got a great designer upfront to do the brand and packaging and it has made the world of difference.

Balance work and family. I have 5 sons and have always put them first – I only work in the office until 3pm then I am there every day for them after school. They are only young for such a short time and it is time you can never get back.

Be kind to yourself! You will probably be your own worst critic, so take regular checks of what you HAVE achieved rather than what you have not done yet, take time out to chill even when you have a meter long ‘to do’ list. and of course, the usual… eat well, exercise well and enjoy the ride!

Maggie Howell, founder of Turmerlicious

 

deborah-mcphilemy-e1486032326544When you were born, you may not know this yet, but you arrived with your very own internal guidance system; your intuition and your emotions.

Just because your intuition speaks to you with a soft and gentle voice, does not mean that you get to ignore it.  I know that you want to find your own way and I am not saying that you shouldn’t…accept a little help along the way, after all you trust some satellite in the sky to show you the best route to take whilst driving your car.

If you ever doubt or think that your intuition may be disconnected or off, use your fall-back system, your emotions. If it doesn’t feel right or you have doubts, it’s easy, simply don’t do it!

Deborah McPhilemy, author and coach

 

headshot-2-e1479994723613As a 53 year old woman, mother and entrepreneur I want to empower you with the knowledge that… ‘You Are More Than You Think You Are’. 

You are mind, body and soul and you are one with the Divine energy of all things. This is where you came from and it is where you will go back to. The journey in between is called ‘life’. Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths, feeling the air going into your body and see it leaving your body… this ‘air’ is the source of life, it is Divine energy.

To live your life in balance you simply have to connect to this breath and release the mind. My wish for you is that you never have to take to the streets like the women before us, but instead you can connect with your Divine feminine, through the breath. When you embrace this state of oneness you have eternal power, this is how we become the master of our destiny and NO MAN will be able to take that away from us.

Jacqui Land Keavney, founder of Globalsoul Jewellery

 

gss-shann-smallWhen the Welsh Assembly Government came to visit our farm recently, they asked me what our projected business plan was for the next five years.

I told them that it was to help as many people as possible. Our company motto is “Family first”; I encourage my employees to look after themselves and their family members, and they respond by volunteering to come in to work early, working late, and showing a real passion for the job.

I like to think of this as running things the female way – empowering employees, helping them care for their loved ones, and doing well by doing good. Chuckling Goat and our natural healing treatment for eczema has had a 1,113% growth rate in the last 12 months. Nice companies do finish first!

helenDon’t try to be perfect! 

I learned very early on in my career that sometimes you just have to get on with things. We all know people who agonise over which shade of white to paint their kitchen and a year later they’re still sitting in a room with plaster on the walls. This is the business equivalent of having a great idea and spending so long finessing it you never get your product to market at all. If you’ve got a great idea then do it before someone else does. It doesn’t matter that you may not have absolutely perfected it, you need to get out there and establish whether there is a market for it, what type of people will buy your product and understand how you can reach them. Perfection can come later and can be informed by all that you’ve learned along the way. My company, Medichecks, sells health tests and blood tests you can do at home and simply post to the lab for analysis. We got the idea up and running with the most basic of websites (all that we could afford at the time) and have re-designed it twice in the last 3 years. Are we perfect now? No! But closer to it with all the knowledge we’ve acquired along the way

Helen Marsden, Medichecks (Premier sponsor of the Platinum Awards 2017

 

Version 3Do what you love. Embark on a project you are extremely passionate about as the passion will give you the drive during the tough times and the likelihood is there will be a lot of these in the first 3-4 years. Don’t start a business because it seems sexy or has high potential profit margins and returns. Businesses built on your passion and around your strengths and talents will have a greater chance of success. It’s not only important to create a profitable business, it’s also important that you’re happy managing and growing it day in and day out. If your heart isn’t in it  you won’t be successful.

You’re a new addition to a crayon box, ask yourself what colour would you be and why? Green – quite an obvious choice for a matcha green tea business owner! Green symbolizes nature and peace also my personality type has quite a lot of green influence as I love being social and focus lots of energy on relationships.

Katherine Swift, Founder of OMG Tea (organic matcha tea)

 

mindy-026_mindy_gibbins_kleinYou DO have something to say to the world! So many people, especially women, feel they don’t have anything important to say, so they don’t write the articles, blogs or books they could write, they don’t get up and speak in public or even on video. If I could light a fire under every single woman who holds herself back and sabotages herself, I would do that (in the nicest possible way).

It’s a proven fact that men can be over-confident, while many women are under-confident and undervalue themselves and the wisdom they have to share. Please find your message and story, and begin to share it with the world. We need more women to step up and shine a light for others, to be role models and show the world how great they are. Don’t we like hearing from and learning from other women (not just men all the time)?  I believe in you. You just need to believe in you, and then go out there and share your story!

Mindy Gibbins-Klein, speaker and founder of The Book Midwife® and Panoma Press

 

vanessa-real-remediesdownload-1Sometimes it may feel like a mans world, but that’s not true. It is the feminine aspect that will cause humanity’s healing. We must teach the men to realise their feminine aspect and embody a healthy masculine aspect within ourselves.  Determine to be the change we want to see in this world. Meet each challenge as an opportunity to grow and let go of old limiting behaviors, this world needs women like you; driven, determined and full of love.

The feminine aspect has deep power and a duty of care. Women are more naturally open, honest, caring and connected to this earth. Hold the world as if it were your newborn. The time for femininity is now; take action, connect and unite. Be courageous, as if the work you will do is the most important thing in the world.

“I love to drink the third eye and crown chakra blends on a spring evening, they are so relaxing and help prepare me for my mediation practice”

Vanessa Jacoby – Co Founder Real Remedies

Real Remedies was born from Vanessa Jacoby’s desire to share her awakening with others. Disillusioned by working in a city bank, she embarked on a journey of self discovery, which led her to yoga, mediation and the healing arts. She was introduced to the power of natural remedies when as a young girl, her mother gave her a herbal remedy for an abscess, and within three days the abscess had gone and never returned. From then on Vanessa’s interest in alternative medicine grew and she began making her own tonics at home, for coughs, colds and flu and continued learning about how to heal the body naturally.

Amongst many other magical things, she started to sense her relationship with plants and was called to design special blends that worked specifically with the Chakras.

A mother of 2 little ones, an ardent yogi and intuitive masseur, Vanessa is passionate about self-realisation, awakening and conscious community. She is also co-founder of The SkyLimit Centre, a company dedicated to growth, empowerment and awakening.

Love Yourself First This Valentine’s Day

Here’s an update of a post I wrote last year about self-love for Valentine’s day…

Whether you are happily loved up this Valentine’s day, happily single or actively searching, one things for sure, unless you love yourself it’s going to be more difficult to have a healthy happy relationship with someone else. This may sound a little cosmic but I’d urge you to ask yourself how intact your self-esteem is?

Our children are constantly bombarded with messages of needing to look more ‘cool’, and look up to size zero models. When there’s an increase of self-harming in teenagers, and increasing depression, anxiety and suicide rates – surely our self-loathing has gone too far? I’m not suggesting that we all become vain and arrogant and ‘worship’ ourselves, but we could practice gratitude, a spirit of thankfulness, and recognise that we aren’t born with a lack of self-love. How many babies and young children berate themselves? None! They are immensely pleased with themselves. Low self-esteem is a learned trait, but we can ‘unlearn’ it and if we want to really experience love, it’s essential to practice self-love, or perhaps it would be better to see it as ‘self-care’.

Angela Bradshaw is the author of ‘Be in Balance’ and she says ‘When you practise being kind to yourself as a default ‘attitude’ to life, you can then be happier too – not overburdened or overwhelmed because you are being responsible to yourself first!’ 

You may have seen the rather odd phenomenon across blogs and documented in the women’s pages of daily newspapers about ‘Mirror fasting’. It’s a new craze started by a blogger who was concerned she was obsessed with her own appearance. But I’d like to encourage everyone to look in the mirror more often – but not in the name of vanity, to worry about your wrinkles, commiserate about greying hairs, or pull faces to tighten your jaw, indeed I think we should be looking in the mirror in order to be appreciative, to show love to ourselves as we really are.

looking-in-mirror

Louise Hay, dubbed ‘The Queen of New Age’ by the New York Times, after writing ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ in 1984, (it’s sold over 35 million copies), owns the extremely successful international publishing company Hay House and is a strong advocate of self-love. Louise believes in affirmations and is a great advocate of what she calls ‘Mirror work’ – looking in the mirror several times a day and saying ‘I love you…..(and add your name). Just try it a few times (in private is fine) and you’ll realise how tricky it can feel. Most of us are so conditioned from an early age to be self-critical, and have low self-esteem because we feel we don’t look ‘attractive’ enough or we’re not in some way ‘good’ enough.

mindhealbody-620x380

Hay House author David Hamilton has written books on kindness including the excellent book ‘The Five Side Effects of Kindness’, and he looked at the science of how the mind affects the body in his book ‘I Heart Me’. David says…

‘It’s so hard for most people (to love themselves) for two reasons. One is that they don’t know what self-love actually means, which makes it difficult knowing what to aim for, and two, that a lack of self-love is deep-rooted; mostly it’s a consequence of learning and experiences in the first 6 or 7 years of life.

 

One simple trick, that doesn’t require any effort like thinking positively, is to notice your body language. Your muscles always betray how you feel about yourself as you go about your day. So, at least 2 or 3 times a day, simply notice how you’re sitting, standing, walking, or interacting. Then shift your body language to something that says you feel good about yourself. If you do this consistently, you will start to shape your brain wiring for a more healthy sense of self-love.’

So if you are feeling a bit ‘Billy no-mates’ this Valentine’s day treat yourself to some self -love – go on…you’re worth it!

So Much for Dry January…Now What?

Are you one of the people who is counting the days till the end of dry January? Maybe you identify with Chris Evans who said this week…’I don’t care if I’m two stone lighter, I’m miserable, every day feels the same!’

chrisevans

I work with Chris at Radio 2 and in fact worked with him years ago, when we were both at Virgin Radio as it was then (in fact he owned it for a while!). He was always a guy who could hold his beer and be discerning about a fine wine so it’s probably not surprising that he is finding dry January taxing.

So I wonder how Chris will ‘celebrate’ on Feb 1st and if you have also given up the booze for January what will February and the rest of the year look like for you from a drinking perspective?

Many people fall into a cycle of ‘binge-detox-binge’ which can be bad for us emotionally and physically. Dr Max Pemberton wrote in The Mail

 “I disagree with the underlying premise of dry January – the idea that you can make up for drinking too much over Christmas. It seems that the first month of the year always sends people a bit weird. They tend to forget everything they’ve been told about basic biology and nutrition”

He believes a few weeks of abstaining doesn’t make up for over-indulging the rest of the year. His recommendation is to do a detox only if it will have some meaningful impact on your health, most of us are aware of the damage too much alcohol can do, and there has been campaigns lately to encourage us to ‘love our liver’ but still we are far from being a temperate nation.

The reality is that none of us really know what to believe about alcohol, there are SO many different studies and reports. The Government recommendations of the amount of units we should drink across a week are really just a guess, we read reports that say alcohol in moderation is good for you, then a recent report from the Journal of American College of Cardiology says that drinking just one drink a day can be bad for your heart, they say one glass of wine or beer increased the risk of abnormal heart rhythm by eight per cent.

drinking

One thing is for certain, we live in a drinking society, it’s very social to drink, there are pubs on every corner, it’s part of our culture, and for those of us that do drink it’s not going to go away.  So how would it be if we could drink with confidence, drink if we choose to, but ‘manage’ the alcohol rather than the alcohol ‘managing’ us?  There is a big difference between an addict and someone who has got caught up in a habit, and for most people who drink too much it’s exactly that – a habit.

No human being was born with a taste for the hard stuff, we ‘learned’ to drink, and just as we learnt the habit we can ‘unlearn’ it or at least take control. We drink for many reasons – stress, boredom, anger, loneliness, fear, to communicate, to numb ourselves from sadness or grief, and when we established a habit of drinking, our unconscious mind which acts like a kind of reference library, ‘filed’ that action under …’that made me feel better quickly’.

Come February or any other month when you have woken up wishing you hadn’t tried to handle your drink like a fruit fly (apparently they have an astonishing alcohol threshold due to their genetic makeup), you will no doubt be saying to yourself…’I will have an alcohol free day, or I will drink only one glass of wine or have only one beer’, only to find yourself tapping away on the computer at 9pm astonished at where that bottle of wine went…. Thinking …’What happened to my resolve? ‘

Typically, you then enter into another spiral of waking during the night berating yourself for not having enough willpower and vowing to do better the next day and so it goes on….

How would you feel if I told you that nagging feeling you have that’s it’s all going to go pear shaped again once February comes around, can be changed forever? There’s no magic ‘I don’t like the taste of alcohol anymore’ pill of course, but there absolutely is the most amazing Hypnosis programme created by world renowned hypnotherapist and top selling author Georgia Foster.

georgia

Georgia is also an international speaker and creator of life changing programmes, she uses hypnosis, the window of the ‘between awake and sleep states’, where your mind can absorb at a much faster state, the alpha and theta state to train the unconscious mind, she believes we all have an incredible mind, and whether you want to learn how to drink less alcohol, improve your self-esteem, calm your mind or find love, she believes she can help. She has created the ‘7 Days to Drink Less’ online programme and it’s really effective.  She won’t be trying to convince you to give up alcohol, in fact she says it doesn’t matter how much you are drinking… you can trust your phenomenal mind.

At her workshops, she encourages anyone who had a boozy night planned not to cancel, she believes you can make changes, and with hypnosis you can make these changes so much faster, you can shape your emotional relationship with yourself. Instead of allowing those inner voices – our inner critic to come in and convince us that we really do need our third or fourth drink because last time it obliterated the feeling of what was really going on….she recommends we listen to one of her recordings, a twenty five minute session which can be done anywhere, (but you must be stationary and preferably lying down), and over time (hopefully over seven days) you will have a different attitude, which is not linked to struggle or willpower but to the intuitive healthy confident part of you that recognises that doing irreparable damage to your liver, and embarrassing yourself because you are hungover is probably not the best form of ‘self-care’.

Georgia, who has featured in The Mail, The Times, and on Sky News believes we need to shut off our ‘inner critic’ so instead of the feeling of being ‘radio crazy’ with a constant inner dialogue of…’I must have another drink so I feel brave enough to…. I’d better load up on some Dutch courage before I make that phone call’…  You listen to positive thoughts and suggestions which ‘re-programme’ your unconscious mind to know it’s safe to drink less alcohol.

She suggests we get back in touch with the healthy intuitive confident part of who we are.

This is not a ‘quit the drink for good’ programme, no sir. With my imperfectly natural approach that’s why I love it! – Georgia having once been a heavy drinker, who has ‘been there and got the T shirt’ still drinks now, and she doesn’t suggest you stop either, (unless you really want to). She believes you can train your mind to keep the ‘fun’ bits of choosing to drink alcohol but not the bits that cause you emotional grief, or the sense of...I have a drinking problem,’ – when it starts to impact on your life.

What we now know is that the brain is adaptable to change, Georgia says ‘remember it’s a thinking problem not a drinking problem’. The great thing about Georgia’s 7-day programme is that not only does it impact on your drinking, it makes you feel more calm and confident also.

Georgia and I are going to be doing some work together developing programmes (watch this space) so I love the fact that she believes ‘you need to honour the authentic you’.

If you know intuitively that you are putting a strain on your body, trying just a bit too hard to ‘hold your beer; or keep up with the lads, or drown your sorrows’ now is the time to take back control.

http://www.georgiafoster.com/7-days-to-drink-less-2/

My gift to you (and I hope you will come back to me and tell me how liberating it was for you) is to jack you up a 25 per cent discount on Georgia’s 7-day programme – I’M NOT ON COMMISSION!!  I’m offering this because I can see the benefit so clearly and I know there are people who after just a few days of listening to this hypnosis audio will think differently about their desire and ‘need’ to drink too much.
