Blast Your Middle Age Spread in 30 Days by Hula Hooping!

Hula Hooping

Hula hooping is something I’ve not done since I was a child and even then I wasn’t very good, so when my personal trainer Donna mentioned I should try hula hooping to help my ever increasing waist line, I wasn’t convinced. However there is nothing more motivating than trying to do up a pair of jeans, […]

I think most of us are waking up to the fact that our planet is at breaking point, with plastic pollution around the world causing widespread damage to our oceans, habitats and food chains.

About Me

Hi, I’m Natalie Shirlaw, a professional hair stylist on a personal wellness journey.

My aim is to help women live a more natural life that will leave them looking and feeling amazing. Ever since I was 10 I’ve been fascinated with the hairdressing business and officially started working when I was 14. I’ve worked in some of the top UK salons and for some of the best hairdressers in the world, and I now have my own salon in Kent.

 As a hairdresser I’ve always wanted to give my clients the latest and best products and even ended up being a technical consultant for L’Oreal, but one thing was common throughout my career - 

I am passionate about finding natural and organic products that work just as well as the big brand alternatives, and that are ultimately better for you too. For over 10 years I’ve been actively researching, and testing as many products that I can. Everything from skincare, to makeup, to food and even home wear. I’ve been incorporating these products and tactics into my daily life since and I’ve never felt better. Outside of my regular work I’ve studied martial arts and other Eastern practices like Reiki, meditation, Feng Shui, EFT and NLP.

 So as you can see I’m a big advocate for all around healthy and natural living. I’ll be sharing my best tips, tactics and products here, that you can implement easily to live a more natural life, where you can feel and look amazing. I’m really excited to have you with me on this journey and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together!
