About Me

Welcome to Tea in the Tub. A cruelty-free beauty and lifestyle blog.

I’m Helen and I run this blog from the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire with my 3 long-haired chihuahuas, Pe, Minnie & Louis, & golden retriever Honey. I am a self-employed holistic massage therapist, clinical reflexologist & aromatherapist at Forest Holistic Therapies. Making people feel better is just awesome.

Animals are my passion. I have been vegetarian since I was 13 and became vegan in November 2017. I hope everything on my blog reflects this.
I was born to travel. I have been around the world twice, returning from a 14 month adventure in 2016.

Next plan? Travel across Canada in a van.

Met Steps in NYC

Keeping fit is very important to me. I am a red belt in taekwondo and a bronze medallist in the 2018 World Championships and 2019 British Championships.

I have ran the Great Gorilla Run, a charity 7k dressed as a gorilla, 5 half marathons and a Tough Mudder which was by far the most exhausting. Think 11.5 mile obstacle course with climbing, plunging into ice water, electric shocks and lots of mud… and I do this for FUN! Freak. I also ran a Colour Run in Melbourne which was amazing.

I also do aerial hoop and burlesque!

Colour Run
Silver medal!
At last count I had over 35 different types of tea. I enjoy collecting tea but not as much as I enjoy drinking it!
I spend an unhealthy amount of time in the bath indulging in cruelty-free beauty products whilst thinking about ‘stuff’ I use.  I thought it might be fun to share my experiences and opinions with the rest of the world about all this ‘stuff’ and thus Tea in the Tub was born.

Feel free to contact me about anything at all. I accept emails, tweets, pigeons and owls. I hope you’ll enjoy my posts, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy some posts.

      Aww thanks. That's one of the nicest comments I've ever had.
      I looove running and fitness. I'll be looking into the Shine Marathon. Sound unusual. Not sure if I could run 26.2 miles though.
