• Why December is a great time for facials!

    Blossom Beauty was winner of the Muddy Stilettos Award for Best Complementary Therapy, so who better to ask why this time of year is good to get a facial (quite frankly, I think all year round is a good time to get a facial; one of my fave treatments ever)!  Ellen Zok who runs Blossom […]

  • What’s On: 24 – 30 Nov

  • Because I’m (not always) happy…

    Strictly speaking, that’s not true. I’m not always happy. But I’m definitely a glass half full type, so near as damn it baby! It’s a big bad world out there sometimes, and here on Muddy, we tend to skip on the lighter side of life, but that doesn’t mean we can’t touch upon some of […]
