A look back to 2023

Our clients came back from their holidays and breathed a sigh of relief as they settled into toast&co’s plush seats.

Beauty and power like the ancient Greeks

The ancient Greeks valued beauty. They felt it reflected a purity of spirit. Because of this, they spent long hours caring for their bodies.

Considering an anti-ageing treatment?

One day I looked in the mirror and thought it supremely unfair that I had such distinct frown lines between my brows. I mean, it simply did not represent who I was. I am a happy person, and these frown lines, which had become more or less permanent as my thirties progressed, seemed to suggest […]
