Tigerlily Taylor takes you through the party season, one detoxing move at a time…

Model and all round badass Tigerlily Taylor may be the off-spring of Roger Taylor from Queen but showmanship doesn’t come naturally to her during the soiree season. Admitting to a level of anxiety in the weird ‘non-real’ fashion world, Tigerlily talks us through how she combats the affects in a three week diary…

Week One:

As the kind of person who likes a drink (or four), navigating yourself through the tinsel strewn glamour of the December holiday party scene (whilst maintaining total internal radiance and the closest thing to a healthy glow that any Londoner can achieve) is not an easy task. The shiny exterior that shrouds the realm of fashion eventing (strings of evenings spent feeling a bit self conscious and therefore downing glass after glass of champagne) is overshadowed by the dark possibility of an ever looming hangover.

The prospect of getting dolled up and spending the evening milling around making small talk with a lot of people you really don’t know but are probably supposed to know, can be a little daunting. Especially for someone who is, deep down a socially awkward dork more prone to tripping and falling down the stairs than gracefully swanning into a party… (an unfortunately true story).

Due to my true nerdy nature and inner desire to be at home with my dog, I find that the holiday party seasons can be pretty taxing on my health. Having spent many teenage years convinced that I am totally indestructible, I consequently put my body through the arduous task of regenerating from endless nights of partying on very minimal sleep. However, at the ripe old age of 23 I have come to realise that I am in fact mortal and my body will suffer if not properly maintained.

This realisation has lead me on a path of health related discovery and it is only at this stage in my young life that I find I have established a proper regime for the maintenance of my mortal temple. Assuming that there are in fact a lot of people who are secretly terrified of social interaction, it is my intention to offer some semblance of alleviation to any woman who finds herself thrust into one or many social situations in which she may not feel entirely comfortable.

With the winter months comes the promise of excitement and festivities, a possibility of snow, and the probability of a dip in your mood due to an imminent lack of vitamin D; as well as potential alcohol poisoning. Other than taking vitamin D supplements and the obvious nutritional necessities: basically, eat lots of vegetables and maintain a healthy gut.

After years of research I have come up with some sneaky tricks for surviving these perilous months of balancing partying and keeping your body alive….

Step 1: Detox

The Solution: Pink Himalayan Salt Sole and Fresh Lemon and Ginger Tea with Cayenne Pepper.

Why It Works: If you are planning on braving the baltic winter winds and leaving your homely cave one of these winter nights, being a Londoner, I immediately assume that alcohol is on the cards, therefore, detoxification is essential. You must restore your body to it’s internal glory if you want to survive the winter. Sole water (fully saturated salt water), if ingested, detoxifies the body by balancing it’s pH system and providing minerals which support hydration. Every morning I drink two tablespoons of sole water before my super indulgent, steaming hot mug of lemon and ginger with cayenne!

Well that was fun… Thank you @caradelevingne and @burberry for a mad fun start to the Christmas period! 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

Pink Himalayan sole also helps to support hormone imbalance, which in turn improves sleep as well as supporting weight loss and thyroid and adrenal function. Drinking a cup of hot water every morning helps to flush out the system anyway and by adding fresh lemon you are providing the body with vitamin C which, as I am sure we all know, is the best method for fighting off those pesky winter sniffles. I like to add slices of fresh ginger to the brew to give it an added superpower.

Face says it all… best party in a while! Thank you again @burberry and @caradelevingne 🙌🏽#lotsaxmasfun #karaoke 🎄🎄

Due to its high concentration of antioxidants, ginger is considered one of the best methods of removing toxins from the body. It’s fibre content aids digestion and helps to regulate excess gas and stomach acids in the intestines. It also helps to control fluid retention and, come on ladies, periods suck, so anything that will help me feel like less of a water ballon every month is always a bonus. While I would like to make it clear that I am not promising that a cup of hot lemon and a bit of salty water will rid you of all of your holiday aches and pains, it certainly helps me. Throw in a cold press juice and add a little charcoal for extra detoxification and you’ll be laughing in your winter hangover’s evil puffy face!
