TREND WATCH: GET FRESH

Fresh air, longer days and a sense of good things to come. Spring is such a hopeful time. Plenty of opportunity for an update be it in your wardrobe, your kitchen or your bathroom cabinet.

TREND WATCH: GET FRESH

The Calm Folk. My son was experiencing an anxious period at school and I was lucky enough to be introduced to Louise, a children’s wellbeing coach who works alongside parents and teachers to create a calm, carefree environment, in order for children to flourish and thrive. Through workshops, 1:1 programmes or online resources, Louise works closely with children to equip them with simple, yet effective techniques to create calm within, befriend their emotions, breathe through the stressors and believe with one small step they can flourish, thrive and reach their full potential. It has worked wonders for Albie, he adores Louise and looks forward to his sessions. Thankfully he has overcome his anxious period, and we have a very happy little boy. [email protected].

TREND WATCH: GET FRESH

I have a slight obsession with jumpsuits, mainly because I find them versatile, comfortable, and I can dress them up or down, without thinking about pulling together an outfit. I love to team with sneakers for a business meeting, and pop on heels for a night out. I have my eye on a long wrap jumpsuit from Mango. Soft flowing fabric with a long sleeve and contrast waist tie, I think it will be my favourite outfit this summer. £49.99, shop.mango.com.

TREND WATCH: GET FRESH

As I get older I find my skincare routine needs to change more frequently and I’m always on the lookout for a simple but effective regime. I have read lots over the past few months about The Ordinary skin company, a brand created to celebrate skincare integrity in its most humble and true form. No flashy packaging, simple and effective ingredients and with amazing price points (£10 a bottle), I thought it was definitely worth a try. I picked up a peeling exfoliating mask, hyaluronic hydrating acid and a retinol from Fenwick, Newcastle. I’ve been using the products for a month now, and can really see the difference in fine lines, texture and the hydration of my skin. I’ve been so impressed I’m going to try the foundation next…

The Turmeric Cookbook…

TREND WATCH: GET FRESH

I’m always on the hunt for a new healthy cookbook, and after rummaging around the Anthropologie store in Leeds, I picked up this inspiring read. Considered to be one of nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients, turmeric has long been used in the Chinese and Indian traditional systems of medicine. Scientific studies show that turmeric has anti-cancer properties and may help to ease the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. It can improve liver function and heart health, lower cholesterol and help protect against Alzheimer’s disease. So it’s no wonder it’s rising quickly in popularity, as wellness seekers of all ages discover the health properties of this incredible superfood. Turmeric becomes more active either when cooked or combined with other specific ingredients such as ginger and black pepper. This book is packed with delicious turmeric-based recipes, from tonics and teas, to soups, curries and salads – and even ice cream.

My favourite has to be the devilled scrambled eggs on sourdough with crushed avocado – perfect for a weekend brunch.

Spring sneakers…

TREND WATCH: GET FRESH

As we step into spring I love to have an updated pair of sneakers in my wardrobe, for everyday effortless style. I’m always on the go so they have to be smart, comfortable and bang on trend. This season I have opted for Nike AF1 Sage Phantom White. With a neutral suede textured upper and a semi-transparent stacked sole, they are feminine, stylish and will team with any outfit, perfect for a business meeting or that casual weekend style. £94.99, office.co.uk.

Building update…

We have now submitted our final planning permission. A few small amendments to the external look and feel of the building, and the addition of a creative design studio and showroom space. Follow the journey on Instagram: @the_hudson_life.
