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, Pepé, 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.
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!
