“Our son Harry was 5 1/2 when he died. Prior to his death he was a perfectly healthy little boy with a huge personality!”

He became unwell in March 2009 and after a visit to the Doctors we were told he had a virus. The next day he was admitted to hospital as he was struggling to breathe. After being given a nebuliser and oxygen his condition improved overnight and it was assumed he had an asthma attack.

The results of the tests showed that Harry had suffered massive brain stem damage and once he was taken off of life support he would not survive.

Loving this idea!
Congratulations Forest and Folk Botanicals
“With the help from OurMK, Forest and Folk now offers loose bulk organic wholefoods by weight too! Customers are able to bring their own jars to refill or grab one at the shop. New unbleached cotton drawstring bags are now also available to use for refill products. Weigh just as much as you need and save money!”

COMMUNITY ACTION: MK

The first refill, bulk goods shop has officially been launched at Forest and Folk in Great Linford.20170406_122509

This zero-waste food shopping project, funded by OurMK through MK:Smart, HEFCE and the OU, is the brainchild of Alissa Pemberton, founder and owner of Forest and Folk Botanicals. Her shop has long been focused on reducing waste , allowing customers to bring their own jars and containers to fill up on shampoo, conditioner, soap, various washing liquids as well as loose herbs and spices. The shop also stocks bamboo toothbrushes, natural deodorants, natural candles, plastic free cotton buds and many other re-usable and plastic free alternatives.

Admirably Legal

From Harper’s Bazaar to The Telegraph to Vogue and beyond, everyone is raving about the fashionista tea hosted by the Berkeley Hotel in London’s upscale Knightsbridge area. Oftentimes when I hear an excessive amount of praise, particularly by the media, I become hesitant. This hesitance vanished when I began reading bits and pieces of the menu.  Shoe cookies inspired by Alexander McQueen, cakes inspired by one of Moschino’s most recent collections, Dolce & Gabbana inspired panacotta….it really is just as amazing as it sounds.  The best part?  You can keep asking for more!  Want to know how much of a glutton I am?  I went through several rounds and asked for a fresh set to go.  How cute is the display?  Even the menus and take away boxes are fantastic.

I somehow attempted to justify my gorge eating by walking everywhere.  Honestly, it probably didn’t cancel out, but it was…
