Hello my dears,
hope you are all doing nice and well.
I am rocking my Saturday night tuckled into bed with Adorable Dog snoring at my side (you can tell my Perfect Husband is away, can't you!) and believe me, that's the only thing I want to do right now.

I have got some health issues that are getting worse and the situation is getting out of hands at the moment, so I'd rather stay alone at home then spending the night going around or explain people why I look miserable.

I am supposed to go back to Italy next month and I really hope I can make it, Venice is calling and I really need some family time with my Mum and Dad.

So tonight I want to introduce you to the new Neal's Yard Remedies space that opened its door in King Street Manchester few weeks ago.

Now, I don't want to call it a shop, because it wouldn't be right: it is a relaxing oasis, that's what is it.

It's the kind of place you want to go after a day shopping, to have some time for yourself, relaxing and chilling, choosing some high quality skincare that doesn't break the bank.

No need to rush or to elbow to reach the make up counter, no crazy music on full blast, no sales assistants ready to sell you their mothers, this place is where you can just browse around the shelves trying creams, swatching cosmetics and choosing some supplements or a new scented oil for your house.

I was invited to have a look around and the first thing I was impressed with was the variety of products and services offered.

From skincare (you need to try the Wild Rose Beauty Balm, works miracle on dry patches) to make up, from Herbal Remedies to supplements, not to mention the entire Frankincense Intense range that I would buy in bulk, it was very hard to resist the temptation to fill a basked with blue pots and bottles.

 On the night of the event I purchased the Organic Eye Make Up Remover.

I am extremely sensitive when it comes to eye make up remover and eye creams, 99% of eye make remover make my eyes water for ages and I wake up like a panda.

I found the Neal's Yard one extremely gentle and delicate, I use it to soak some cotton pads that I leave for few seconds on my eyes and that's it, make up gone and happy eyes!

The store has got some treatment rooms downstairs, where you can get pampered with every kind of massages, facials, aromatherapy, plus, more specific treatments as reflexology, osteopathey and physiotherapy.

I was offered a hot stone massage and I did not regret the choice.
In Sarah Nelson's hands, I felt like all my tension was dissolving, I could have slept on that bed.
I plan to visit her again soon, her hands are magic.

If you are around Manchester and you want to go and have a look, the new Neal's Yard Remedies store is located in the heart of the elegant King Street, you cannot miss it.

Here are some contacts details if you want to book for some after shopping/before night out or just "I need some relax" treatments.
