On Sunday September 28th my family and I will be taking part in the 10k memory walk at Victoria park to raise money for the Alzheimer’s society
Some of you are aware that our dad has Dementia – thankfully its stable and so he is a lot more independent. The Alzheimer’s society have offered help for the family by taking him on activities such as bowling and offered help to the family.
We’re doing this walk to support the work of the Alzheimer’s society and make people aware of the charity as a lot of people suffer in silence without realising there is help and support out there. This is a fantastic charity – but it can only continue its great work through the help of donations.
All of the money we raise will help support people living with dementia and their families, so your donation will make a huge difference.
Just £50 will pay for someone with dementia to go to a Dementia Café session every week for a month, where they can meet others, share experiences and feel less isolated. And the more we raise, the bigger the difference it will make.
Please follow the link to sponsor me. Any amount will be gratefully appreciated
To support this worthy cause I will be donating 10% of every Zambroza Sale to the charity.

The festival season is just about to start so I have come up with a few must have beauty products to get through the weekend.
I have been to a few camping festivals in the past including Glastonbury last year. I asked a few experienced festival goers – what essential products should you take to a festival?
The first thing I worried about was what would I be eating. It was a long journey from the car to the campsite so I knew I needed to pack lightly. The food was relatively cheap with some quite healthy but with that extra drinking (if that applies to you) or fast food it’s always good to have some extra supplies.
This is my saviour product especially if by mistake you drink more than you ought to. Have a couple of shots of this before you sleep. It’s very high in antioxidants so it will help kill off any free radical damage and I found that I would wake up feeling well. This is also great for those who have a low immune system – it will prevent you getting ill.
I have heard some of these festivals are now providing a big choice on healthy foods. This is a great shake to have first thing in the morning preventing that hunger feeling. It will also provide you with all the nutrients you need for the day.
The pot this comes in is quite big to carry, so best to empty the amount you need into a plastic bag that will seal easily.
You may be tempted with face-wipes as the ideal travel make-up remover, however they do contain a lot of chemicals and I know for myself I have sensitive skin so I can come up in a rash. I also find they leave a residue and so your face is not totally clean.
A great tip is to buy a few muslin cloths, decant your cleanser into a smaller bottle so it is not too heavy to carry, massage into the face and wipe off with a cloth it maybe a little bit more pricey but you can keep and re-use the cloths afterwards.
Everyone I asked this was in their top ten must-take items! Batiste is a common favourite, however if you are looking for a more gentle formulation. I would recommend Klorane which contains soothing oat milk.
If you are on a budget You can also use cornstarch as this is the main ingredient in some of the products being sold it helps soak up the grease.
This is my favorite eyeliner of all times. I would recommend the MAC pro longwear pencil. You can feel confident that it will last the whole day and won’t smudge under the eyes if its rains – this is especially good news due to the lack of mirrors in the toilets!
This is a light powder which give great coverage. Mineral based powders do not block the pores so its ok if you forget to remove your makeup before you go to sleep. It also contains a spf 15 with titanium dioxde which will protect your skin in the (hopefully!) sunny weather.
