After 6 days at the retreat I am leaving in the morning around 7Ibs lighter and feeling so better in myself. As the weather has been so bad here in Devon, I joined Dinnaton health club(a members only club) near Ivybridge to swim in their pool each morning and for the pilates classes. This is not something that is advocated by the retreat, as they fill your day sufficiently with talks, treatments and yoga and meditations, but I wanted to swim regularly as was missing it.
Whilst parking my car in the car park, I noticed “Exquisite Beauty”, a small beauty salon beside the health club. If you are local to the area, I would highly recommend this small salon that was bought and taken over 3 years ago by Kate Lethbridge when she was only 18. Kate runs the salon and does the treatments with skill and care and is fully booked most days. The pedicure, eye lash and eyebrow tints were as good as those I have had in London. If a 21year old can make such a success of a business in only 3 years, I wondered what she will be doing in 10 years time! I say watch out Estee Lauder….
