Faux Fitspo and Social Media Madness – are you fooled?

March 17, 2016

On nutrition, eating, Fitspo and social media. Because we actually make it harder than it is. Nutrition is something so innately easy and we’ve managed to take it, twist it and make it something that we stress ourselves over. I wanted to share this really quickly because social media and the trending Fitspo hashtag  feed the illusion that the answers to what you should eat to feel and be well are ‘out there’.  They’re not. Eat anything you want. Eat as…

Crystal + Mineral Magic | Rachel Crethar of Rock & Co

March 2, 2016

My first ever experience with a crystal was with a Lapis Lazuli. I was 19, dawdling around Spellbox in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade while skipping class with a friend who was captivated by oracle cards, energy and crystals. I picked things up and set them down again. A glittering tray of gems caught my eye at the counter and I wandered over to them. Their properties intrigued me, but what stone would I choose? And for what? After settling on Lapis…

A is for Adventure

January 23, 2016

ADVENTURE is my glittering, guiding word for sweet 2016. ADVENTURE. I love it. Really, really love it. I love that I didn’t have to ponder it. I love that she just leapt right out and excitedly declared: Adventure Awaits. It feels right. Like an overzealous puppy she literally tugs at my sleeves, c’mon c’mon! Imagine this! Oh, and this! And we should read that! Let’s go here! And let’s make one of these! Everything is energy, and the energy of…

Love & Links for a Happy Weekend.

October 16, 2015

Oh it’s been a hot, summery and stormy kind of week. A goodie, chock full of exercise on the deck, hanging out in the veggie garden and water play with B boy. Our front yard is almost complete – yay! Think 3 tiered merbau boardwalk lined with incredibly beautiful and lush palms, birds of paradise, cacti vibrantly lilting toward the sun in their pots, hidden pathways and our glowing mango front door. My husband, a super-talented industrial designer-turned landscape and construction…

Love and Links for your Weekend

September 13, 2015

This week was a beauty. Eventful although I didn’t do a hell of a lot. You could say on an ethereal level it was chock full of symbols and sweet little nudges. Lovely emails + online comments from like-minded peeps reaching out to say ‘Hey, love what you’re putting out in the world’. Heart-swell! A long and richly fulfilling soul chat. A few moments of self-doubt followed by crystalline clarity. A tonne of exercise (hello Kayla Itsines pre-training!). Kombucha making and…

A blog break & a baby!

August 12, 2015

There is a special kind of sweetness in surrender and a subtle kind of magic in each moment. Release what holds you back. Burn the bridges that bind you to limited thinking. Those who appear to have it all generally do, not because they want it any more than you, but because they leverage themselves by living in line with the dream. So walk, talk, eat and sleep like everything you wish for is everything you already have and watch the…

29 quotes to shift your mindset

March 18, 2015

If you’ve been hanging round here for a while, you know that I wholeheartedly, absolutely and unabashedly  believe that words wield power. Nestled at their core is the potency to turn friendships sour, give rise to periods of unrest, start wars, propose forevers, shower kindness, spark revolutions and influence human nature. We all crave connection. It runs through our veins and reminds us that we belong to something bigger than ourselves.  When we wander off track or get swept off course,…

Feeding Fulfilment: Eating Emotions.

March 11, 2015

You are an energetic being made of the same stuff of the stars. You are nature, personified. Each one of us is born with an infinite amount of potential. We trust our instincts long before we trust anything or anyone else. We rely on the intrinsic nature of our intuition before we develop our senses. We know what we need. We know when we need it and we demand that we get it. Simple, no? As we grow we develop relationships, branch…
