As the weather starts to get colder and the leaves start to change, it signals the end of summer. It’s time to put your swimming trunks and bikinis back in the drawer and your summer suitcases in the attic. As this season draws to a close, we welcome autumn with open arms, as we prepare for some of the most exciting events and offerings of the year. It’s time to wrap up warm, devour your favourite comfort food and enjoy as the leaves crisp up and fall from the trees. Autumn is one of the best seasons, and we’ve listing the things we look forward to the most.
Wearing warmer clothes
Time to get out your favourite wooly jumpers and wellies to enjoy the change in weather. There’s nothing better than being able to put on our favourite knitwear, wrapping up warm in a chunky knit cardigan and getting snug for the colder temperatures. An extra hour in bed
The best thing about autumn is that extra hour in bed once the clocks go back. With the mornings getting colder and darker, getting out of bed can definitely be a struggle. That extra hour gives you just a bit more time to snuggle up in your duvet and enjoy some more snoozing time. Autumnal recipes
Nothing beats doing some baking at home in the colder months, especially with the seasonal flavours that are starting to be introduced now that summer is over. Apples and blackberries are in their prime for cooking, along with several vegetables such as carrots, cauliflowers and a Christmas favourite - brussel sprouts! Our Forever Bee Honey is a great natural sweetener for cakes, bread and even savoury meat dishes. Halloween
Get your costumes ready, a big event throughout Autumn is Halloween; which is just around the corner! It’s time to start carving pumpkins, getting our fancy dress costumes ready and trick or treating.
Everyone loves a good excuse to get dressed up and have a little fun with children on this day. It doesn't matter how old you are, this holiday doesn't have an age limit. Return of the Roast Dinner
Roast dinners are somewhat forgotten about throughout the warmer months, but now that the dark evenings are starting to draw in, we can definitely start to look forward to eating hearty and wholesome meals, just like the trusty British roast dinner. Cozy nights in
With the colder weather it gives you an excuse to just stay in and watch a film, cuddle up with a blanket and light some cinnamon scented candles. You can organise your social calendar around blankets, hot chocolates and comforting foods. Bonfire night
This event cries autumn. Bonfire night gives you the chance to head down to the park and watch glittering balls of fire shoot through the skies above, surrounded by scents of candy floss, sizzling hot dogs and the burning bonfire. What more could you want on an autumnal evening? Drinking all of the hot beverages
Gingerbread lattes and spiced apple cappuccinos! Coffee shops love to play around with flavours around this time of year, so treat yourself to something special. Our Aloe Blossom Tea is a delicious herbal tea that is soothing, refreshing and caffeine-free. Getting wrapped up and ready for bed
After a walk in the chilly evening air, it’s nice to snuggle down into bed. Sleeping in during summer isn’t too appealing, but once the weather gets a little cooler, you’ll find yourself tempted to crawl back into bed or hit the snooze button a couple of times. The beginning of Christmas markets
Despite Christmas being in winter, it is autumn that marks the start of the Christmas gift shopping frenzy. Christmas markets start to pop up in towns and cities during November and many of us start to get excited for the winter season.

Vital5 – The ideal companion to a healthy lifestyle
At the end of last year, four brave Forever Business Owners embarked on a 54-day F.I.T. challenge, starting with the C9 and following through with the F15 programmes, with the aim of transforming their bodies and mindset surrounding food and exercise. Shaun Cooper was one of these challengers and we caught up with him earlier this week to see if he had continued to implement these good habits into his lifestyle some nine months on. Shaun explained that using the Vital5 products have really helped to keep him on track. Read on to find out more… How long have you been using the Vital5 products?
I have been using the products in the Vital5 pack on a daily basis since December last year when I finished the 54-day F.I.T. Challenge in which I used one C9 and three F15 kits.
How do they fit in with your healthy lifestyle and when do you take each product throughout the day?
The products fit in perfectly with my lifestyle. I love to train hard and I also love to eat lots of healthy food! The supplements work synergistically to provide my body with essential vitamins and nutrients throughout the day so that along with a balanced diet, I’m confident that I’m getting all the nutrients I need.
First thing in the morning I take two shots of Forever Aloe Vera Gel on an empty stomach with water. I then have my breakfast of porridge oats and a Forever Lite Ultra shake. Following this, I take my Forever Daily, two Forever Arctic Sea tablets and a Forever Active Probiotic beadlet. Late morning, I have a Forever Fast Break bar as a snack followed by Argi+ and a Forever Therm supplement just before I go to the gym. Following my gym session, I have chicken and rice followed by two more Forever Arctic Sea tablets. For dinner, I will typically have fillet steak with pasta and a further two Forever Arctic Seas. Before bed I will have another shot of Forever Aloe Vera Gel and if I’ve I have had a rigorous training session that day, I will then have another sachet of Argi+ before bed to aid recovery whilst I sleep. What is your favourite product in the pack?
My favourite product would have to be Argi+ as I love the impact it has on my training, I love that I can take it before bed and at different times of the day as it’s stimulant-free so it doesn’t have those unwanted side effects, plus I love its taste!
What benefits have you noticed by taking Vital5? Do they complement your healthy lifestyle well?
Since taking the Vital5 products I have seen much better results both in the gym and with changes in my body. I weigh out all of my food and when I’m in the gym I record every weight, set and rep so that I can monitor improvements in my strength and fitness. In order to maximise the effectiveness of this training, I also need the correct supplementation to support my body’s nutritional needs. I can rely on the supplements in the Vital5 pack to deliver what I require in order to help me get to that next level of fitness.
How would you sum up the Vital5 products?
The Vital5 pack is a great selection of products that you can use whether you are trying to lose weight, gain weight or just for general health and wellness. Its benefits when taken with correct food choices are huge and really have a significant impact on both performance and general wellbeing. It’s the first product pack I recommend before anything else!

Back to school – time to re-think your career?

September is synonymous with many things: the onset of autumn and falling leaves, harvest festivals, the nights drawing in and of course going back to school after the long summer break! For many youngsters including Prince George, this week marked the first day at primary school and a huge milestone in every child’s (and parent’s) life. For working parents with school-age children, September can be a particularly reflective month since it marks the return to both school and work after a long spell of precious family time. Whilst some parents are grateful for this return to ‘normality’ and a more rigid routine, others find it harder to adjust to the 9-5 lifestyle and the demands of juggling so many aspects of their life at once. To make matters worse, many primary schools are often accused of being particularly inflexible towards working parents, since they adopt a settling-in period during the first few weeks involving shorter hours. The effect of such a policy can play havoc with parents’ schedules who need to be available to collect children from school at midday. However, even after the chaos of the first few weeks, school hours and holiday dates can be close to impossible to manage alongside a 9-5 job. So, is there another way? Are there jobs out there that fit into busy family life and still offer good career and financial prospects? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that the answer is yes!
Forever Living is a direct marketing company in the health and wellness industry which provides an opportunity that anyone can be a part of. By simply using and sharing the fantastic products, as well as building and coaching a team, you could build yourself a successful business with a lucrative income. Other benefits of Forever Living include qualifying for a range of incredible incentives, including travel opportunities to many luxurious locations all over the world, a car plan scheme which could see you owning the car of your dreams, bonus cheques and many more. However, one of the biggest selling points for many people is time! Time to be with your family, time to do the school run and time to go at your own pace. Most people would agree that flexibility is so precious in the fast pace of modern day living, and Forever Living can offer a genuine escape from the ‘rat race’.
Forever Living has helped a whole host of parents over the years to achieve incredible things and to give them back the time and flexibility that they all desperately craved. One Forever Business Owner, Andrea, was asked why she decided to join Forever Living and here is what she had to say:
“Like many Forever Business Owners, I am a single parent to three amazing children. I joined the business because I needed something more flexible, something that would fit around the children. I now wake up and pinch myself when I think about what I’m able to provide, very flexibly, for my family. Forever Living is not only something I’m doing for my children, but I’m doing it for me too. It’s given me purpose, confidence, and a huge sense of fulfilment. I know that a happy mummy helps create a happy home and going forward I know I will be able to create some amazing memories with my children.”
