Hair gels are popular and there plenty on them around. There are some that claim to be all natural but the list of ingredients on the packaging seems to say otherwise. I had shied away from using hair gels until I read blogs which inspired me to try aloe vera and DIY flax seed gels. I was expecting the natural gels to hydrate my hair, make it easier to style and to give good curl definition.

There are a few things that I can’t do without in life and one of them is our family holiday abroad each summer. Britain is a beautiful country and there are some fabulous places to visit but it’s the weather. It’s just too unpredictable!

I have been saving this recipe for when the weather was good enough for alfresco dining. Last weekend the weather was so nice and so I decided to make this great salad. The inspiration came from the Grown in Britain Cookbook. I have made a similar salad before but with just carrots and so I wasn’t sure if the addition of beetroot added anything to the recipe. I must admit I did deviate from the original recipe slightly and made my own dressing with great end results!
