The Year of the… Allergy!

by Dalila Salgueiro 26. June 2014 05:54
I've been suffering from all kind of allergies for as long as I can remember and this weekend, while enjoying the lovely – and always welcome – British sunshine in Green Park, I was caught out by yet another burst of hayfever-induced sneezing and eye itching! A friend of mine recommended Chinese medicine in an attempt to treat and cure me of my allergies. I couldn’t resist giving it a try… I visited a Chinese Medical Centre in London. My appoint...

The Delights of the Aqua Oleum Floral Waters… Following the wettest winter in a hundred years scientists are 75% certain that 2014 will be the hottest summer on record. Whilst this is super exciting news and our bodies are currently relishing in translucent skin being a thing of the past, keeping cool in the city can be problematic. Tube journeys, marching from the office to home and back again, evening drinks with friends, enjoying the parks... [More]

Welcome, Summer

by Dalila Salgueiro 6. June 2014 13:49
The sun is shining today – yay! This incredible weather is just what we’ve all been waiting for and we’re certainly hoping it lasts! It reminds me personally of the lovely south-American weather where I grew up and the days spent on my roof terrace watching the colourful sunset in the ‘Avila’, an incredible mountain that borders all the city of Caracas and which is probably one of the things I miss the most from Vene...

Mindfulness

by Dalila Salgueiro 2. June 2014 05:03
By Hilary Boddie Recently I was lucky enough to attend a weekend retreat at the wonderful Champneys, Tring on mindfulness - the latest stress-busting technique that’s got everyone talking. Basically, the principle of mindfulness is to train yourself to be in the moment - not to worry about things in the future or relive things from the past. Simply by being properly aware of what you’re doing at any one time, and focusing on that alo... [More]

by Harriet Warwick 22. May 2014 06:07
Yesterday evening three of our team headed to Regent’s Park to hear a panel of travel experts discuss ‘The Great PR Debate’ in association with TravMedia. The panel included Harvey Dean from the digital agency, Designate, who questioned whether social media has left traditional PR dead… concluding that it had not but we need to embrace social media as part of PR. It was interesting to hear from Tom Chesshyre, travel writer at The Times and wa... [More]

Baby Spa

by Lucy Hilson 22. May 2014 05:27
When I heard about the Baby Spa by Laura Sevenous I couldn’t wait to take my 8 week old baby Harry! As soon as we stepped into the spa, which is situated just off Kensington Church Street, I instantly felt relaxed and calm. Soft spa music played in the background and the tranquil environment put us both at ease. Once we’d had removed our shoes and settled in, Harry’s therapist introduced herself to us both and gave me some special swimmin... [More]

GUEST BLOG - Summer sunshine

by Dalila Salgueiro 14. May 2014 08:19
The sun has had its fair share of negative press over the years concerning premature aging and skin cancer. We are constantly reminded of the importance of wearing SPF creams on a daily basis, even in the winter months. Thinking back to school days we were always taught that the sun was needed in order to create life so it can’t all be that bad can it? With June and July offering us the strongest sun of the year it’s time to consider ... [More]

GUEST BLOG - Taking natural beauty to a new level

by Dalila Salgueiro 6. May 2014 12:04
I recently visited Iceland and I can honestly say it was the most beautiful country I have ever visited. There were so many reasons to fall in love with this place, the friendly Icelanders, stories of the Icelandic elves and the most fabulous scenery that left you totally in awe of Mother Nature. I witnessed the dramatic activity of a Geyser, stood at the edge of Gulfoss Waterfall and visited the famous Blue Lagoon. With one of the 2014 spa trend... [More]

Jamaican Escapin…

by Izzy Falcon 2. May 2014 06:25
Having fled London for sunnier climes over the Easter weekend, I experienced the most wonderful week in the beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica! This stunning island is the third largest of the Caribbean islands leaving plenty of exploring to be done and boasts exotic neighbours such as, Cuba, Mexico and the Dominican Republic to name a few. I had previously visited the island where my mother grew up, but this trip truly reignited my love f... [More]

Being inspired by the Bronners

by Dalila Salgueiro 23. April 2014 11:06
Believing in the clients I represent has been my top priority since I started in the PR industry, as I can’t imagine myself pitching a product to a journalist that I don’t think actually works! Last week, I was extremely excited to be involved in organising a press lunch with the owners of Dr.Bronner’s, one of my favourite eco brands! The family owned brand is now over 6 decades old. It all began with Dr.Bronner, a man of moral... [More]
