Down to Earth African Potato cream

Down To Earth African Potato Cream
I thank my lucky star for the day I was asked to review the Down to Earth African Potato Cream! I really fell in love with this cream when I developed frozen shoulder one weekend, after one overnight application of this cream, I awoke feeling supple, rested and pain-free! I was convinced! I have since used the cream for tight hamstrings, stiff neck, sports sprains and more and I have never been disappointed. Read my original review here:

Superfoods Green Shake

superfoods greenshake shop organic top organic products 2014

As a pescetarian who loves raw food, travelling in Africa is not always conducive to the ideal diet, especially in the dry season and when I became pregnant whilst in Congo some time ago, I was very very happy to have my Superfoods Green shake to fill in the nutritional gaps. I have used this powder in smoothies and over salads right through my pregnancy and beyond, and my daughter now absolutely loves her green powder and kefir smoothies! I can feel my body feeling loved when I use this, find out more about Superfoods here:
