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…

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…

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…

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…

Declutter Wayne Dyer Quote

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been on a decluttering binge fest. Thanks, Peter Walsh.⠀ And boy, does it feel good. 😊⠀ Everything is getting cleared out. The spare room (which hubby and I affectionately call “the room no one speaks of”) is currently the dumping ground for everything that doesn’t have a place – it’s getting a massive overhaul. Everything is going that: I haven’t touched in over a year, has long-term dust on it (you know what I’m…

Animal Biscuits

Yay, I’m so excited! I found healthy biscuits for my daughter to snack on…!! ⠀ Ok, I’m going to be honest here. Back in the day, it wasn’t uncommon for me to start my day with a nice strong instant coffee with around 3-4 processed biscuits each morning. That was my breakfast. And I had no idea what I was eating or doing to my body to set myself up for the day. ⠀ When I first started my healthier…
