DAY 17 OF LENT
I have always loved soup even from a young kid.
So easy to make, delicious, nutritious, warm and nourishing winter food.
For the Retreat I made a pot of root veg soup. Took all the root veggies, mixed with water, sea salt and pepper and in 30 mins you have a hearty stick to your ribs soup.
It was a great hit, no stock, just pure veg, so easy and cheap to make.
Just rustled up a pot for my friend to come home to.
Still drinking my juice around 2 pints per day plus some fish and salad at night.
Hit the Vibrogym large on wednesday, did some one legged squats to trash my quads and glutes and boy did I succeed.
I was helping my friend with her fashion show yesterday as the pain of moving started to kick in.
Not the cleverest thing to do when you have a busy few days ahead!
However a bit of yoga and a headstand mixed it all up this morning. Going to do some Emotion Codes now, always fascinating what old emotions are lurking around and holding you back, it is not usually what you think it will be.
My friend Ellie Emmanuel has been teaching 14-16 year olds on styling for success. Teaching them meditation, law of attraction, how to present yourself and how to communicate not just with words but with style.
Her training company has been having outstanding success, especially with kids who are not in alignment with the system.
She quite literally inspires them to be all they can be and her infectious enthusiasm for fashion, clothes and our young people is catching.
I spent the day with her yesterday, picking up the most incredible clothes.
The trust that the shop owners and dressmakers put in her was fab to see, she was given basically anything she wanted.
She called in some very talented friends for hair and make up and although she had about 100 different outfits and 25 models the entire thing went without a hitch.
These young girls got to experience a real life backstage adventure. They were nervous but marvelous. They did hair and make up and it took the entire day of dedication to put on the 2 hour show. And that was just yesterday. The rehearsals before, the choosing of the clothes, then of course today, everything has to be returned. An enormous amount of work that Ellie did smiling like a kid in a candy shop the whole day.
There was about 150 people there and one family spoke to my other friend saying that Ellie is the best thing that ever happened to their daughter.
Well you don't get a better testimony than that.
Here is to Ellie, leading the way, cutting edge education through Maxxell Training.
Happy teenagers, surely that should be our goal.
