Throwback Post: We Should Talk About My Hair

I had to have a little giggle after coming across this old post from 2014. I thought I’d give it a reshare because even now so many years later I still love this product so much! And maybe, if you’re still looking for the right product for YOUR hair, you might like to give this one a try.DSCN0900_Fotor_Collage

So I admit that this is a strange topic coming from me. I’m terrible at being a girl. I tried to be a girl the other day. My fingernail started tearing and I decided to glue it with superglue so that the tear didn’t make my finger bleed. I fiddled with that nail so much that it eventually tore off completely, and then I proceeded to bite off all my other fingernails. I wear next to no make up, forget about my fuzzy caterpillar eyebrows for months at a time, have never had a bikini wax (the thought is terrifying), and I only ever shave my legs if I am planning to wear a skirt. I am terrible at being a girl. Well… a “girly” girl at least. Anyway….the point is that it’s a bit weird for me to talk about my hair… But I’m going to do it anyway. Now I admit that I kind of like my hair. There’s a lot of it, and it’s always managed to seem relatively healthy. Unlike my thighs, it tends to co-operate with me (for the most part) so we have an ok relationship. Unfortunately, when it comes to shampoo and conditioner I have always struggled. Many brands tend to make my head itch really badly. Even those brands which don’t make my head itch kind of “stop working” after a month or so and in the past I have found that changing shampoos from time to time seems to work best for me. It’s a balancing game though. I need to use brands that don’t make my head itch, but I need to switch them around constantly. Blegh. It gets tedious. (more…)

Travelling With Herbalife

As I’m sitting here in my cold little house I keep noticing that my mind is taking me back to warmer places like Thailand and Zanzibar. Why those specifically? Well because a whole bunch of our Herbalifers have just returned from a wonderful Herbalife-sponsored holiday in Zanzibar, and because myself and my husband celebrated his 40th in Thailand last month. There’s been a lot of travel happening around the Larter household lately and so my mind keeps wandering back to the memories of warmth. It’s only natural, right?

Every time we have a journey like this either ahead of us or just behind us, I cannot help but find myself exceptionally grateful for the fact that we are a Herbalife family.

While travelling can be one of the most rewarding experiences for just about anyone, it can also be an incredibly taxing undertaking. Sitting on a plane for hours on end can take a serious toll. You retain water, get stiff and feel terrible. Plane food (in coach at least!) can be awful. Your digestion can be upset a little. Constipation. Dehydration. Personally I find it a little trying to keep to a good health schedule as soon as I am removed from the comforts of my daily life.

Luckily for us, we have Herbalife to help counterbalance all of that and make travelling as simple as possible. Today I thought I’d share a couple of my must-have travelling products with you. Because if you’re planning a trip (which I sadly am currently not) then you definitely need to include some of these products on your packing list.

Formula One Protein Shake: Holidays may be about binge eating and experiencing all sorts of new culinary delights, but even my excessive food consumption skills get a little bit tired from throwing too much caution to the wind. Having a shake with me means that I can whip up a quick and easy meal at any time of the day should the need arise. Shakes help to keep my energy levels up for all that crazy sightseeing – which is super necessary!

Herbalife Formula One Shake Bars: An even easier way to keep healthy while on the go is to have a couple of these in my purse while we indulge in our adventures. They make a great snack for between meals and can even be considered as a meal on their own.

LiftOff: As someone who doesn’t “party” often I can assure you that I need all the help I can get when it comes to pulling off a long night of cocktails and dancing. Add a day full of sunshine before a night on the town? Well then I’m just finished! Thankfully LiftOff exists to keep me sane and awake!

Thermojetics Herbal Tea & NRG: Energy. Very important! These “teas” keep me alert and focused while also helping me achieve sustained energy levels. I also find them particularly “necessary” when I’m in a space (like planes and Thailand!) where the coffee is just not great. These two keep my caffeine cravings at bay and help to ease that emotional attachment that I have for my morning cuppa joe.

Hydrate & CR7: These might be my all time favourite product in the Herbalife range. Keeping hydrated while travelling has always been a massive challenge for me. At home I am surrounded by my comforts, but away from home it becomes harder for me to keep my water intake up. Luckily Hydrate and CR7 help a lot, especially in hot countries like Thailand! Using a sachet/serving per day makes a massive difference.

Roseguard: Got to give my body the best chance of staying as healthy as possible.

Fibre & Herb: Let’s just say that constipation can ruin even the best holiday. Holiday food can be low in fibre. Best to help it along.

Mutifibre Drink: Same as above.

Aloe Body Gel & Aloe Body Lotion: Healing and hydrating. When you’re more likely to catch yourself a nice sunburn it helps to have something that to soothe your skin on hand. These products are absolutely fantastic in that they smell amazing, they’re cruelty free, and they feed and soothe that sun-kissed skin.

I don’t know what we would do without these wonderful products. They really do help us to get the absolute most out of our travelling experiences.
