Leda Banana Bars

It’s morning or afternoon tea time and you really need a pick me up. And plain fruit isn’t cutting it. So in the past, I would have a biscuit, some salty chips, lollies, anything to give me a spike in sugar or salt (or both) and I was happy for about 30 minutes. ⠀ Nowadays, I have improved my snack choices so my energy levels last a lot longer and I usually munch on a Carman’s Kitchen muesli bar, some…

Tooshies Baby Wipes

When you have a baby, wipes become your new second best friend. You can never replace your first best friend … lol. 🙂 🙊 And because we use so many of them in a day – to wipe bums, faces, grubby hands, tables, floors, walls, chairs, bench tops, ourselves, pretty much everywhere your baby is in the vicinity of – it’s easy to just buy the best value for money in a bulk pack. I know I did.⠀ But ……

There is no money in healthy people or dead people. The money is in sick people / Bill Maher /

I’ve been watching a range of doco’s lately focusing on the world health epidemic. The rise of blood pressure, cholesterol, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease etc in our communities is alarming. And there is no sign of a decrease in sight. ⠀ We are conditioned to think that such illnesses are ‘common’ now. There’s a pill for everything, coupled with advice that you must eat well and exercise, together with a script for your daily dose of medicine that…

Pukka Tea

I LOVE drinking tea. Which might sound odd, considering I’m of Italian heritage and coffee is deeply entrenched in our culture and family way of life. I don’t mind coffee occasionally, I just much prefer tea. ⠀ Tea makes me feel relaxed, peaceful, happy, chilled and is perfect shared with a friend. It seems to soothe any conversation and help heal the soul.⠀ I don’t mind what flavour either … which was great considering on my last visit to Healthy…

Morning Routine

What do you do when you first wake up?⠀ Check your phone? Have a warm tea or coffee, or lemon water perhaps? Give bubs a bottle? Have brekky? Chill out on the couch for a bit. Yeah, me too.⠀ ⠀ Pre-baby though, I had a very different morning routine. One I am desperate to get back to, albeit I know it will be a little modified, with the addition of little one in our lives now. My routine was based…

Lucerne, Switzerland

Nature’s beauty inspires me all over the world, as it’s so different everywhere you go. Architecture, accessibility, altitude, climate … so many factors influence what we see.⠀ Travelling over the years to many parts of the world has taught me a lot. Mainly to be grateful for where I live, and for the gift the rest of the world is to each of us.⠀ Flashing back to 1998 on my trip to Lucerne, Switzerland where I experienced this magical bridge…

Habits Quote

It’s the start of the year (only just!), and I’ve been thinking a lot about habits and how to remain consistent in everything that is important to me, so that I live happily. Honestly, I have struggled with this over time.⠀ I think back to where I let life lead me, I had minimal routines, no rituals, and just went with the flow … and it worked for that period of my life and suited my fluid personality. But not…

Noosa Basics Deodorant Paste

It’s been heating up in Melbourne of late, so the sweat pits have been getting a good work out. 😅 I’ve previously tried a wide range of different spray and paste organic deodorants to keep me feeling fresh and dry throughout the day. And not all natural deodorants work that’s for sure. To find out my top picks, be sure to check out my previous posts on Axilla paste by Black Chicken Remedies and a wonderful luxe spray by Mukti…

Wardrobe Declutter

This is what I would like my wardrobe to look like, not what it actually looks like ha ha. But I’m striving for it!⠀ So I’ve already shared that I’ve been decluttering our entire home through January in order to clear my mind and be ready for the year ahead. In only a few days, we are back in our design studio and will be in the thick of it. It’s been amazing to clear the junk out of our…
