What is Rhodiola Rosea Root and why I take it

If you’ve never heard about Rhodiola, let me tell you that is most commonly used for increasing energy, endurance, strength, and mental capacity.  It is also used to help the body adapt to and resist physical, chemical, and environmental stress.

Rhodiola Rosea Root grows at 10,000 feet in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. The root when cut gives off the aroma of a rose. Its suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans, Gluten Free, Soy Free & Dairy Free.

I started taking Rhodiola Rosea from Brainpower Nootropics 6 weeks ago as a natural supplement to help me fight common daily stress and I can tell you that I definitely feel the difference.

I’m a very organised person so I tend to accept any tasks coming my way because I can always find time to do them, but what I never do is considering taking time off. Nowadays I’m more conscious about it and I make sure my daily schedule is balanced with work, entertainment and relaxing time off. But for the days that are hard to maintain this balance, taking something natural is a great support.

I always take two capsules a day with water, they don’t replace any of my meals and I make sure I maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and eating a varied, well-balanced diet.

This is only my personal experience, so if you’re considering using Rhodiola I would recommend you to visit the following link so you’re fully informed:

Natural History Museum| London

London isn’t only about the fancy restaurants and cute places with delicious tea and cakes. Sorry if my blog has only sent you that idea so far. There’s so much more to it and the Natural History Museum is just one example of that.

The museum is home to life and earth science specimens including some 80 million items within five main collections: botany, entomology, mineralogy, paleontology and zoology. Their collections are quite fascinating, especially given the age of the institution, many of the collections have great historical as well as scientific value, such as specimens collected by Charles Darwin.

You might recognise the museum by its exhibition of dinosaur skeletons, the large Diplodocus cast that dominated the vaulted central hall before it was replaced in 2017 with the skeleton of a blue whale hanging from the ceiling.

If you’re visiting London I would definitely suggest a visit to the Natural History Museum, not only because of the amazing and interesting things you will find inside but also because has an easy access and the entry is completely free.

Product Review| Man Polish

I’m sure I’m not the only one out there stealing her boyfriend’s products. Well, stealing is a very strong word, I prefer to say “borrowing his products” even though I end up using them more than he does.

But I’m here to tell you about a specific one from Man Polish, which is a gradual tanner but ensures that you don’t leave the house looking like you’ve been tango’d.

Here are a few reasons why I’m using it instead of buying my own tanner:

This one is fragrance-free, which basically means that it won’t take over my perfume. It’s also vegan-friendly and non-animal tested, which is surprisingly hard to find nowadays. It includes shea butter, jojoba oil & argon oil which really moisturises your skin and it’s made in the UK.

You have different ranges, the subtle which is the one I’m using (and by I, I mean my boyfriend and me), the strong and the neutral which doesn’t tan, simply moisturises.

If this is something you would like to try, head over to their website, I’m sure you won’t regret it! https://manpolishuk.com/
