Nostalgia & Food

Nostalgia & Food

Here at Live in the Light we are always looking for products that we can introduce to our customers so as you can imagine, when we get something new, we can't wait to open it and see how the product smells, even before we try it out.

What we have noticed is that whatever the smell is, we (especially Lou), immediately associate a smell with food which is usually triggered from way back in our childhoods. We are convinced that this is because so many foods when we were 'little', smelt so much better than they do now... it could just be that wonderment of childhood smells or in fact that foods now just don't have the same amazing aromas that they used to?

We would love to know if you do the same... is there anything that you have bought from us that has triggered a memory, or a nostalgic moment?

Pure Anada's Limited Edition Wild Raspberry Body Wash & Body Lotion.

Remember when the Mr Softy Ice Cream van used to come down the road and we would all beg our parents for a 99... add the chocolate flake and then drizzle with thick, sticky raspberry sauce ... and this smells just like that... delicious!

Prickly Pear Seed Oil...straight from Morocco!
But what does it do?...


If you are like us, when you hear Prickly Pear, you might start singing Bear Necessities from the Jungle Book... but in all seriousness you will be amazed at what this oil can do and does do for your skin and hair.  
Psst... by the way.. we were really fascinated to discover that this is Nigella Lawson's skin secret...so quite literally, the proof is in the pudding!!
As well as using on her face, she uses on her hands and has reduced that "wrinkled-chiffon look", plus on the ends of her hair, dry elbows and cuticles.

How Do You Like Your Tea?
How Do You Like Your Tea?

Let's be honest...we all love a good cup of tea. Some of us like a traditional cuppa, or fruit, green and so on.

We tried Annmarie Gianni's Beauty Blend Tea which was surprisingly lovely. We also found that it really does give you a lift and you then crave it...but don't worry. ..there is nothing but goodness in it so craving it is a good thing.

One of the main ingredients is Yerba Mate which was featured in the Netflix programme, Down To Earth with the gorgeous Zac Effron...
