Time to give your pantry a makeover

give_your_pantry_a_makeover_declutter2

  Thanks to  Jen Robinson from Life Wrangling for this guest post. Sometimes when we make a decision to eat healthier and to look after our bodies better, it’s the little things that can make us come unstuck. For example, walking into the pantry and seeing shelves of unhealthy food is not going to help us maintain our commitment to a healthier life. This is definitely a case where we can use out of sight, out of mind, to our…

Embracing Your Emotions with Essential Oils

doterra_enta_essential_oils

At the end of July 2017, I was invited to attend a doTERRA learn, make & take class at Enta, with a group of gorgeous women, all there to learn how essential oils can help with emotional management. Mariana Suarez, our gentle heart-centre guide, shared, “We all do our best to look after our physical health, without realising that many of our physical ailments are coming from emotions we have been holding to; sometimes for too long and most of…

For all the chocolate biscuit lovers.

choculence_everyday_awakenings_leda_nutrition

Who loves a chocolate biscuit? Me, Me, Me !!! Now I love a biscuit dunked in my tea, but I haven’t bought mainstream biscuit brands for a while now. Many of them have contained palm oil or vegetable oils and super high levels of sugar which I try to avoid, and frankly ingredient labels on biscuits have SO many ingredients with codes and numbers, at times it’s too overwhelming for me to work out is it healthy or not. So I try…

My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around. / Federico Fellini /

How many of us have experienced this? We push our bodies to their limits. We think we are indestructible. We think we are eternal. The reality is that our bodies can only take so much. Drinking, smoking, poor food choices, stress, exposure to toxins, strenuous physical activity, lack of sleep…these all contribute to our bodies eventually screaming out. “STOP” Much like Federico Fellini, my relationship with my body has changed. I have absolutely pushed my body beyond it’s limits, and…

Pills – love them or hate them?

I have a love hate relationship with pills. I recall coming home after my gall bladder operation and I felt excruciating pain like nothing before and all I needed was for it go away, so I could rest and recover. The problem was that by taking the painkillers I was in minimal pain; however, I was hallucinating and couldn’t sleep as a side effect. I stopped taking them after 8 days of no sleep (plus I had started seeing some…

Successful people start before they feel ready / Richard Branson /

How many times have you thought: “I’ll start eating better tomorrow.” “I would love to do something about the extra weight I’m carrying.” “I’ve got a great business idea!” “It’s time to look for a better job.” “I’d love to start using better skincare.” And you do nothing and just go back to normal everyday life. Sound familiar? Ever wondered why? It might be a whole range of reasons. But often it’s because we feel fear. Fear of rejection, fear…

What’s in my Nappy Bag?

I often get asked what products I use on Juliet, as there are so many on the market. It can get confusing to know what to use or choose, as so many products contain harmful toxins and fragrances, which can cause harm to our little ones. ⠀ I always stick to products where I can understand the ingredient’s listing, they are ideally certified organic, or have recognizable ingredients at the very least and I go with a less is more…

The Organic Butler Fresh Produce

I am a big believer in manifesting (combined with taking action) to get what you want in life, and I have a little story to share.⠀ It was Sunday morning last month, and hubby and I were chatting about how time is so limited now with all our work and family commitments. One of the things we have been striving to do is minimise – minimise our material stuff, minimise our commitments (I’m currently failing at that lol!!), minimise where…

Stella – Noosa Basics Deodorant

When I reviewed this product back in January 2017, I had no idea how much interest there would be. It has been my most viewed post to date. ☀️ I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart getting feedback where my posts and product recommendations are helping you make healthier buying choices for you and your families. I try and test all my products to find the best and most functional products in each category (in my view),…

Food Changes Everything / Joshua Rosenthal /

It really does.⠀ I remember a time where I never gave a second thought to what or when I ate. The only things I did think about were “this tastes good, give me more” or “I’m hungry now, what can I eat to snack on quickly” or “I’ll skip breakfast because I’ve no time and I’ll just eat a chocolate bar in the car on the way to work”. Can anyone relate?⠀ ⠀ In my my early thirties, I started…
