We start the New Year with a fabulous new venue - The Elm Tree in Ringwood is a gorgeous thatched country inn with a beautiful Tythe Barn attached where we will be holding our monthly Live Laugh Love events. I am so excited about launching here on the 24th January and welcoming you along to share in a lovely light supper - refreshments and our first speaker of 2018 is the fabulous Kristian Lees-Bell - a Hypnotherapist and Physchoanalyst who helps to treat various conditions, fears and phobias and specialises in sleep patterns and getting a good night's sleep.
Remember to book your place at least 48hrs before the event so we can be sure to cater for you with the fabulous buffet and refreshments - book online - any questions or queries call me on 07803 630418 - I very much look forward to greeting you and welcoming you on the evening - Linda x
We are in for an evening of entertainment along with our usual supper together, we welcome back Kristian Lees-Bell not as a hypnotherapist this time but as one half of 'Tall Order' - Kristian on vocals and Dom on Saxophone. Some of you heard Kristian as our speaker in January all about sleep but you won't be nodding off on this evening as Kristian returns to hypnotise us with his voice along with his fellow artiste and saxophonist - no greater combination, performing jazz and swing - definitely one not to be missed and highly recommend early booking to avoid disapointment! £3 Supplement on normal event price for this entertaining evening.
Penny Nicholas - Mindfulness - This month we have invited Penny who spoke at the Wimborne group in April to come over to Ringwood. When Penny spoke there we had such fantastic feedback and many were unable to make the date so this evening will be another great opportunity to hear her speak.. Penny will introduce us to mindfulnness practice and for those of you who know mindfulness you'll explore it further. With many years experience, Penny was one of the first Mindfulness Practitioners in the area and her knowledge, experience and reputation is second to none. She explains it so clearly and in many ways dismisses many myths explaining what it isn't as much as what it is. I for one could listen to Penny all day - you will get a greater understanding and practical experience of Mindfulness, a recognised benefit for relaxation, health and well-being.
We are in for a fabulous lunch time event today with the lovely Jacqui Cooke as our speaker, come along to enjoy a wonderful lunch and refreshments, meet and make new friends as always and discover some secrets to make up that will help to enhance our natural features to the best. Jacqui Cee is a fabulous independant make up artist who uses a variety of different ranges to maximise and make the best of highlighting and hiding - we all want to feel our best and often how we look can make the difference - there are some tiny changes that can make a huge impact. Jacqui works on make-up for all occassions, weddings, special occassions, portrait and family photography - all to bring out the best of you and create wonderful memories for special days. All that set apart, she's also a really lovely lady who you will love to meet. Looking forward to another great lunch together and some fun with make-up and techniques. I'm a 62 year old who wears little make-up (sorry I'm a bit of a skincare only fan) and think I may be being used as a model to show the difference it can make - so should be an interesting demonstration! Here are some words from Jacqui herself :-
I have always been fascinated by the transformation when the right make up is applied. It has become my passion. Seeing the smile on the faces of my clients when they look in the mirror is all I need to know that I am doing what I love and love what I do.
I first started in the make up business by working with a photographer in his studio applying makeup to clients wanting their own personal portfolio of photographs and profiles which involved hair, makeup and general styling for the shoot.
I then became involved in fashion shows including bridal and began working with more photographers using my more creative skills and being published in magazines which I am very proud of.
I believe in 'look good, feel good' so when a client asks me to do their makeup for their party or event whatever it may be, I love to be part of making someone feel special for the day or evening.
