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…

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…

Conscious living

For quite a while now, I have been trying to live consciously. With intention and positivity. It’s not easy, and sometimes I fail miserably, but when I succeed, I feel in flow and centred. So I keep trying … everyday. So what does it mean to live consciously? Well for me, it means making active, self aware, positive and confident decisions for everything in my life. All the time. With purpose-filled intention. That includes my purchases (especially food and healthcare),…

Andalou Naturals Hairspray

Are you like me and need to tame that frizz and keep your locks well under control? It’s been the story of my life. Flyaways, frizz… I’ve been dealing with it for years. And I have gone through a lot of hairspray cans in my time. Yep, you know the ones – where you have to scrunch your nose, and hold your breath for fear of breathing in and choking, until the hazy residue gently settles all around, all over…

Food Forage

There is a local backyard food growing revolution happening. 👏 Consumers are becoming more and more informed about their food choices and wanting to go back to basics, with many families growing a small patch of veggies. It’s a wonderful way to save money, eat nourishing healthy food and teach your children about gardening in the fresh air. The reality is not everyone has the space or the time to do so. Wouldn’t it be great if you could buy…

Live your best life now.

Ever been in an earthquake? Neither had we, until a few days ago. And what a crazy, shaky experience it was! It was around 2.30pm on Hamilton Island and I was just finishing up giving Juliet a leisurely late lunch in our 11th floor apartment when everything started shaking. And I mean everything. At first it was a slow rumble and then it built in momentum, to the point that the hanging light shade was swinging side to side and…

Deodorant Paste, Armpits and Axilla

How’s your armpit doing? When’s the last time you gave it some love? Odd questions I know, but important ones considering your armpit is home to hundreds of sweat glands that help control your body temperature and work to expel harmful toxins such as cancer cells through lymph nodes from your body through perspiration. There isn’t scientific evidence to back claims that blocking your lymph nodes causes cancer through using chemical-laden deodorants and sprays. I think we can guess why?…

Lavender spray is my go to!

Lavender – is it just for old people? Um, no. Lavender: is antiseptic is anti-inflammatory heals minor burns & bug bites can treat anxiety and depression soothes you to sleep aids restlessness This week, my little Juliet has had lots of teething angst. (And so has mum – not teething, just angst). Late nights, fevers, irritability – you name it.
