What we're listening to - 

This American Life Ep. 640 Five Women listen here.

A different kind of #MeToo story, about several women who worked for the same man. They tell us not only about their troubling encounters with him, but also about their lives beforehand. Who were they when they entered the workplace, and how did their personal histories shape the way they dealt with his harassment?

Starting our Sunday mornings pottering around the kitchen with Cerys Matthews on BBC Radio 6 Music for a wild diversity and discovery of music from all genres. 

 

A new Autumn ritual to try - 

Treat yourself once a week to this refreshing, cooling and cleansing face mask to transition into the new season. 

What you will need: 

• 1 tbsp organic greek/natural/plain yoghurt

• 1/2 tsp powdered activated charcoal

Mix together well and apply to your face, leaving for 10-20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water, patting your face dry and applying a small amount of everyday face oil. This simple mask leaves your skin feeling clear, soothed and soft.

 

What we're drinking - 

A simple and powerful morning elixir to boost your metabolism and support good gut health. 

• One shot of raw unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar

• A generous squeeze of lemon

• 1 tsp of local honey

Optional addition - raw ginger/turmeric/cayenne pepper

Mix together well with a little hot (not boiling) water and enjoy the warming benefits as we approach the cooler season.
