  • In Maida Vale/Little Venice and also in Marylebone is Nail Spa. I like their manis and pedis.

  • I know for some people reflexology is pure pampering. Abi England is a local mother and reflexologist. Abi is very happy to offer NW8 mums members who actually live in St Johns Wood/Maida Vale an ongoing discount of 10% on top of any other offers at the time of booking. Abi only does home-visits in St John’s Wood/Maida Vale. She specialises in pregnancy and labour induction reflexology, but also sees clients for all manner of things from stress, insomnia, back pain, IBS, arthritis and more. I can vouch for Abi’s treatments being just amazing!

Beauty Products – Intelligent Nutrients (IN)

I have just discovered these products by the creator of Aveda called Intelligent Nutrients (IN). The whole philosophy behind IN is that what we put on our body, goes into our body and therefore we should be able to eat it. My hairdresser introduced me to them and I am a convert! (I think I have tried most IN products now.) They are slowly coming into the UK, so not easily available in the shops. Apart from purchasing the productc through their website, there is a lovely little boutique just off Marylebone High Street called Content and you can find their products there as well as many other amazing things.

Hair Colouring

I have my hair coloured in the comfort of my own home with the amazing Steve Curran who has done the hair of many celebrities including Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and many more. Steve was Nicky Clarke’s Head Colourist during his ten year tenure there, and he has since worked for other top hairdressers. He currently works at a salon in Knightsbridge and spends the rest of his time colouring the hair of people at the top of their game in the comfort of their own homes. Steve’s experience and proficiencies were enhanced alongside some of the world’s top designers, leading fashion magazines and A-List Celebrities such as Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Vogue, Elle, Grazia to name but a few. He is giving NW8-mums an exclusive deal (prices starting at £140 instead of £180 depending on what you need doing), so if you are looking for someone to give you a real boost, book him. Several of the NW8-mums now see Steve on a regular basis and they are super happy too. You won’t be disappointed!
