How to get out of your own way

It’s a curious thing, asking for help. On one hand, you’re admitting that you can’t do “it all” on your own. It can give you a pang in the stomach as though you aren’t quite good enough and have somehow failed. Aren’t we supposed to be able to do everything... read more

RESPECT – you, me, brands

Today I was scrolling through Instagram when I saw someone I admire and follow sharing something they loved. And a yukky thing happened – my first thought was, ‘I wonder if she really likes this or if she was paid to say she likes it?’ I immediately felt awful and pessimistic, but the truth is, she probably was paid. It got me thinking about how I feel about this. I don’t want to feel hoodwinked. So I felt that it was a good time to get really clear on what I share, promote, recommend and talk about – across all forms of media. Because I don’t ever want you to feel hoodwinked!

Blessed by Jess

My beautiful darling friend Jess Ainscough passed away on Thursday.  I’ve never experienced the loss of someone so close to me before and I’ve cried my little heart out (and I’m sure I’m not done yet).  But I know Jess would not want us to be sad;...

Just imagine if you knew…

Imagine if, back when you were in your teens, you knew how to nourish your body.  Really nourish it.  Feed it beautiful, living foods that make your insides dance with joy, give you energy and make your skin glow.  Feeding your body from a place of love, not...

Natural Manhood

Natural ‘beauty’ is not just for the girls. According to the Environmental Working Group, men are slathering themselves with an average of 85 chemicals per day. And let’s face it, men are incorporating more in to their grooming regime than ever before and it’s not going to stop anytime soon! My partner, Davey is no exception. He’s obsessed with his beard, often linking it to the very essence of his manhood.

Video: Fave Natural Deodorants

The most asked question I get when it comes to switching to natural is, “Do natural deodorants really work?”   I have tried & tested A LOT of them over the last few years so I thought Natural Beauty Week was the perfect time to share my very...

DIY Fruit Face Mask

Last week I was asked to comment on a news article about Aspirin facials. I had never heard of them before so I started researching and found the idea quite alarming. So I created a safe, yummy alternative.
