Quick healthy recipe
Welcome to 2013! THE WORLD NEVER ENDED ON THE 21ST!
I for one had no doubt that I would make it to the new year and since we weren’t wiped out by a huge explosion the only thing were waving goodbye to is the festive season and entering the January blues. After all the presents have been opened and unwanted ones have been recycled its hello boss and goodbye turkey, in this month’s edition of clinic I have great detoxing ideas to help you get rid of those additional pounds from healthy recipes to spas. Also read the dramatic change I’m making, the latest celebrity hairstyle, mineral makeup and a quick back to work outfit.
My hair transition I discovered hair extensions at the age of 15 and at the time I thought I had hit gold, it was the answer to all my hair problems. They were maintainable and came in all the colours of the rainbow which saved me the bother of having to dye my natural hair, it took me some getting used to at first but eventual after a few trial and errors I mastered the craft of the well maintained hair extensions, I call it a craft because any one who wears hair extensions knows about the “dry ends syndrome and the blending nightmare that @team hair extensions have to master. Two years later I had finally mastered the craft of blending and the dry ends syndrome but just as I had mastered these two challenges I noticed that the whole hair extension thing became less enjoyable but more of a task, if I didn’t have them in I wouldn’t feel comfortable which meant definitely not showing my face in public. I didn’t like what a few strands of horse hair were doing to me and turning me into, I stopped appreciating my natural being and became obsessed with this alter ego which I guess I could call it that because when I had them in I felt confident and proud but when I didn’t I felt venerable and not myself. I suppose I stuck with them because I was used to them and I couldn’t imagine myself without them but as the years went by I stopped liking them all together and I just started hating the whole process, plus as I got older I began to change and long, high maintained hair just wasn’t me anymore. Which was when I came to the conclusion (last year) that I was done with hair extensions all together, the new me like’s something completely different….I have decided to go natural! It’s not a decision I just made up one day, I have been wanting to do this for a year now but I guess I was just looking for the right time and now I think is. So high five to all my natural sisters out there not that there’s anything wrong with women who chose to wear hair extension, I liked them once but now I think I’m subconsciously fitting into my “hippy persona” I’m a vegetarian, I like organic products and I’m very free spirited and almost 5 years later I think my exterior is slowly catching up to my interior and I couldn’t be happier.
FASHION FRIENDLY! For those who don’t know CLINIC MAGAZINE Specialize only healthy and organic products which means yep even clothes. Times have evolved so much now that food isn’t the only organic thing that’s on the menu, With fashion becoming the day to day lives of many its only obvious it would also get a spin of its own. There are companys that specialize in organic clothing which I’m extremely happy about

CLINIC PLAITS ARE BACK!
Remember plaits?......yes those tight little worms attached to your scalp made of hair, they are back and bigger than ever. Celebrities from Rita Ora to Rihanna have recently being sporting them, for those who do not know what plaits are. Plaits are traditional way of styling hair across the African continent and have been dated back as far as 3000 B.C and continue to be the choice of hairstyle for many women inside and outside of the continent. They even made an appearance in Valentino’s spring/summer 2012 show and continue to do so on the catwalk as well as off and something tells me they will be around for decades to come. If they are still making a comeback after decades than I’m sure they’ll be around for generations.
Mineral makeup Every female can relate to being knee high and being fascinated by their mothers makeup routine and jumping for a kiss just for hope of lipgloss on your lips. As soon as you get to the appropriate age you started experimenting with makeup only to find out it could give you spots but now you can wear your makeup without any woes thanks to minerals. Mineral makeup isn’t something new, it’s been about since I was studying beauty therapy in college that’s two years plus. It’s an amazing invention it does good for your skin internally rather than just working on your skin externally like most makeup because its made up of real minerals. Mineral makeup is actually made up of tiny micronized minerals that occur naturally in the earth. These are usually minerals such as zinc oxide, titanium oxide, mica, or iron oxides. Certain combinations of these and other minerals together mineral makeup different varieties of makeup that are created specifically for the skins benefit. Surprisingly enough mineral makeup hasn’t really taken off which is something I can’t wrap my head around, being a makeup artist I find myself having to explain it to many other makeup artist at shoots on a regular basis. There’s nothing worse than a spotty model because it makes your job harder as well adding to the photographer’s photoshoping time, which is why mineral makeup is the solution because it does good for the skin hence no spots. I strongly suggest it not just for models but for females of age everywhere, it’s a great invention and I think it should at least be given the chance to work it’s magic.

Quick healthy recipe to get rid of them carbs!
AMERICAN VANILLA STYLE PANCACKES WITH RHUBARB
.300g mangetout, trimmed .2 avocados .Juice of 1 lemon .4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil .1 tbsp Dijon-style mustard .1 red onion, thinly sliced .100g sun-blush tomatoes .1 tbsp chopped fresh mint or tarragon .2 handfuls of pea shoots 3 tbsp pumpkin or sunflower seeds
1. It's up to you whether you blanch the mangetout or eat them raw. Unless you've picked them yourself, they will taste a little starchy when raw - I blanch them in water at a rolling boil for no more than 30 seconds, then set aside on kitchen paper to soak up the excess moisture. 2. While they rest, prepare the avocados. Halve lengthways and remove the stones. Using a small knife - a paring or fruit knife is ideal - cut criss-cross shapes through the flesh, stopping just short of the skin. Now you can simply peel the avocado over the salad bowl and let the pieces fall in. 3. Mix the lemon juice with the oil and mustard and dress the avocado pieces immediately. When ready to eat, add the other ingredients and toss lightly. Season to taste and serve. Tip: As recherché as sun-blush tomatoes have become, it's best to use them before and after the summer - when British salad tomatoes are still on the wrong side of bland and watery.
