Guest Post - Ed the Tortoise

Hello! My name is Lord Edwin Goji Berry of Haslemere...or Ed for short. I'm Harriets tortoise and today I'm going to share my beauty routine and tips with you!

First off let's talk diet. I suppose you could say that I'm on the alkaline diet eating greens and greens and greens it's the way forward! Dandelions and vetch are my favourite but I'm also partial to a nice slice of juicy cucumber to help me stay hydrated. It's good for you humans too, with vitamins A, B and C and it's good for your kidneys! 

I take a nice warm bath every day or two to wash any any sneaky bits of dirt and it's helps my digestion! 
After my bath I get dried off and go out in the garden for some exercise!

Every so often I like to have a bit of olive oil rubbed on to my shell! 

Ooh look I'm so shiney!! Olive oils not just for your salad either, you can put it on your finger nails if they are flaking and it helps them grow, and you can use it as a hot oil treatment on your hair...maybe I should tell Harriet, she's always banging on about bigger hair...

Vitamin D from Mr Sunshine is also very important for me, it helps my shell grow. If the sun is having a day off then I have a special light to keep me healthy. 
Oh, yes I love it under here- toasty warm!
 My last beauty tip for you all is to get lots and lots of sleep! 
Sometimes I get so tired I forget to sleep in my shell! Oops! Sleep is important to help digest your food properly and help your body recover from the day, personally I have about 15 hours sleep a night plus several naps. Naps are essential!!

Anyway, that's all from me for today...I'm off to the garden...
