Tis the Season to be Jolly

Well it’s the first week of Decemeber and this brings with it a mixed amount of emotions for different people. For me this year for the first time in many years I am looking forward to spending time with my family uninterupted by shift work, for this I am very grateful but as the business woman in me develops I realise how difficult this time of year is to run the business; understanding peoples needs to be shrewd with their money and the pressure that Christmas brings, but trying to promote the importance of giving yourself a little bit of you time within this busy and sometimes stressful period. (Business Plug: there is a 1/3 off ALL treatments through December, also gift sets and gift vouchers available!!)

To me Christmas is about relaxing, switching off to the routine that dictates our life for 50 weeks of the year and remembering how to laugh, love and appreciate the friends and family around us who have seen our ups and downs over the past 12 months and are still there to share this special time.

I heard recently that it is important to recognise your values, speak them out, write them down recognise what is important to you as an individual within your family, relationships and work life. If these values are complimentary in all areas of our lives then we will find a satisfaction in all we do and work towards a truly happy life.

Here our business values are to be Successful, Honest & Professional to name but 3. As a business woman I strive daily to portray these values in all that we do (and most people are able to quickly find their career and work values). But do these work hand in hand with what we aspire to be as a family member. It is sometimes hard to juggle the expectations you put on yourself and what others put on you.

For me being successful in business  counjures up images of working hard, diligently staying long hours and showing determination to concentrate all my efforts on the  development of my business (your work, career.) For me the question is how I attain that level of success in both my business and family life because my values there are the same Success, Honesty, Happiness.

Do I work as hard at both? Can I split my time constructively in order to devleop both areas simultaneously? These are questions I pose to myself for the New Year. As a business woman, mother, wife and friend will I ever feel like I do any of these roles well….probably not but recognising where I need to try harder is a start.

The business has done well this year and I would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us and spread the word about who we are and what we do.

If I don’t get chance to see you before Christmas have a Very Merry Christmas!

Christmas is coming!!

We have now entered our second year and the weeks are flying by and we all hate to admit it but Christmas is fast approaching.

We have had an interesting couple of weeks, with the wonderful Esther starting as my receptionist and helping out with my very messy and most of the time unorganised diary she has become invaluable already. – So Thank you to her.

This month as you all know we are donating 10% of our profit to 2 Wish Upon A Star, and I would please encourage you to come and purchase your gift sets and gift vouchers to help us support them.

To all of you planning to treat yourself to a treatment before Christmas please consider booking in advance to ensure you have an appointment to suit you, and not be disapointed.

We will be running 2 late evenings up to 9pm through Decmeber to ensure all our valued clients are able to visit us.

If you still haven’t visited us and are interested in just collecting information please pop up the stairs, it would be lovely to meet you.

** Important** We are now launching home product parties with FREE Mini MDA available to all who come. We will share more information shortly but if your interested in hosting one of these parties please contact us on 01443 223352 and speak to Andrea.

 So lastly our important product review: With these beautiful crisp winter mornings it is perfect time to find what wonderful products are availbale to make your skin enjoy this weather as much as you. For your dry,cracked or just weather beaten skin I would recommend the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisturiser. This uber-rich, skin-quenching and comforting cream delivers  maximum moisture. It is a non-greasy, velvety formula which locks in moisture for 8hrs, and not only hydrating but offering a smoother,firmer and more youthful complexion. I found this wonderful to apply overnight for a fresher, softer appearence in the mornings, this was also very healing for chapped areas. For me was a little to heavy for my skin type by day but a very luxurious night cream. Would definately recommend.

My second best buy for this season is the Soothing Skin, Lip and Cuticle Care. I absolutely love this product as does any of my clients who have tried it. This is a multi functional product which provides instant hydration to chapped lips, cuticles and dry skin. it seals in long-lasting moisture while exfoliating away dry skin. This is not only a handbag essential but a christmas stocking essential for all of you struggling to find a unique gift  this is suitable for everybody. and at £13 is also good on the purse.

Thanks for taking the time

Speak soon

Here we go…….

It is now on the cusp of winter and while we concentrate on getting our Christmas gifts sorted and dig out the scarves and hats lets not forget our poor skin that get a battering in the cold, icy mornings.

My pet hate is dry crispy hands and as this is a very aging sign its good to look after one of the hardest working parts of our body. If you can tolerate a little bit of a greasy cream and the smell of banana the Berts Bees ‘beeswax and Banana’ is a very thick cream but smooths like nothing else and smells gorgeous. Comes in a small glass jar perfect for keeping in your desk at work, or bedside cabinet to apply last thing at night. (£10), or if you like a cream on the go then Berts Bees Hand repair Shea Butter is purse size, and is beautiful to use and a Personal favourite of mine (£7). These lovely products are 100% natural ingredients.

I will review a new product every week through this season picking the good and bad, helping you choose well this year not just for your self but as presents as well.

But most importantly let us not forget those who don’t have or those who face this time of year with dread and sadness.

At Cyfoes Healthcare we support 2 Wish Upon a Star which is working to provide bereavement support to families at the most difficult times in their lives. So as a small gesture this year 10% of all profit taken though November will be given to them to help them continue in the great work they are doing.

you to can support them and still enjoy a wonderful amount of Christmas cheer at this year Christmas shopping event. It would be great to see you there and if you follow our blog please pop over and say hello 🙂

All details are on the poster to follow x

Met a very interesting lady yesterday who is very successful at what she does and I think is going to be an inspiring mentor to me. I will gradually introduce her as time passes but have realised its OK to say you need some help and guidance but I should also sit back and appreciate the huge achievement so far.

We have some exciting plans in the pipe line and these are coming to fruition quite quickly. Will keep you updated as these developments are confirmed.

Today we run our first set of interviews for receptionist post. This is very exciting and we have seen some wonderful people so far but as a business woman and mother I found different roles playing a part throughout the day. Do all interviewers feel the same or are you focused on your business and  the role your offering?

Challenging steps ahead.

Don’t forget our wonderful discount on treatments this month. 15%off!!!

Back soon
