Self Love is the Drug

August 25, 2016

Self love has its own hashtag. It’s trending on Instagram, Facebook groups are built and green juices are sipped in it’s honour. It’s a movement per se. I like social media for the most part and I’m a fan of green juice but I can’t help feeling we’ve kind of missed the entire point. By Google’s definition self love is having regard for your own happiness and well-being. Isn’t it kind of a no-brainer that we have regard for our own…

Tony Robbins: ‘I am Not Your Guru’ Review

August 8, 2016

Tony Robbins, I want to bear hug the guy. A man who moves millions and is a pro at showing up and doing the work. I watched I am not your guru on Netflix last week, a behind-the-scenes look at Tony Robbins Date with Destiny seminar, and was spellbound. His ability coupled with the sheer vulnerability of the participants made for a truly insightful peek into human nature. Tony Robbins is testament to the fact that telling your story gives other…

August 3, 2016

Everything is energy Click To Tweet You don’t need to be a spiritual guru or a practicing monk to understand how beautifully simple this is. You just need to learn to turn down the noise and tune in to how something makes you feel.

Fitness and Nutrition on social media

March 17, 2016

Fitness Inspiration has learnt its own hashtag – #fitspo and Nutrition comes in a million different packages.  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’.  Let me remind you, they’re not. My Nutrition Philosophy Eat anything you want. Eat as much as you want, as long as you make it yourself. I love good food…

Crystal + Mineral Magic | Rachel Crethar of Rock & Co

March 2, 2016

Crystals – I’ve been drawn to them since I was little. Always picking up stones and holding  them up to the light peering around for a twinkle. My first crystal was  a Lapis Lazuli. I was 19, dawdling around Spellbox in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade. A glittering tray of gems caught my eye at the counter and I wandered over to them. Lapis Lazuli, a stone said to be in alignment with my Sagittarius star sun, caught my eye. I tucked it into…

A is for Adventure

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.

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…
