10th June! Be A Better You in Sweet 2016

Talk About Town is back with, “Be A Better You”, with the focus being all about wellness. Our panel – see below – are specialists in naturopathy, essential oils, haircare and yoga fitness, a huge subject which we know will be of interest to you all.

Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. It can be seen as a luxury pursuit for the more affluent societies, because it involves managing the body state after the basic needs of food, shelter and basic medical care have already been met. However, our focus is on living the best life we can and understanding how to balance the way we live with beneficial and simple lifestyle changes. Knowledge is key!

The event will be at the Bicknell Museum Library in Bordighera and the evening will end with a little healthy mingling.

The entrance fee is €10 and included is a raffle ticketwith prizes donated by our speakers:

  • 1. Consultation with Elizabeth Bright
    2. A bath salt and 5ml Lavender Essential Oil from Angela Collings
    3. 2 x Yoga Tickets at the Monte Carlo Bay with Anette Shine
    4. Hair treatment and styling with Bio Hair for 3 lucky people
