A couple of weeks ago the Endeavour College of Natural Health created pop-up gardens all over Sydney, offering organic seeds and organic tea to any passer-by’s. It was all about encouraging us to grow our own produce and learn more about the herbs used and prescribed by their natural health students and graduates. Such a fun idea!Read More
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with travelling. It’s fun to go on adventures but really, nothing beats home. I struggle with airports, that dehydrated feeling no matter how much water you drink on the plane, jet lag and all that air-con! But the lure of adventure is still strong.
I’ve come to realise lately that the art of packing well cannot be underestimated! It can save you enormous amounts of space, money and unnecessary purchases, which are usually bought out of desperation. In those moments, we rarely have the time to source the best option. So, the more organized we can be with reusable and eco-friendly items, the more likely it is that we can save our time and money for site-seeing and adventure!
A couple of friend’s and I have put together a list of essentials just for you! Hopefully it will make packing for your next trip a little easier.Read More
Wow. What a big year! A few words that sum it up are: connection, travel, expansion, LOVE.
Back in 2011 I did a ‘that’s a wrap’ post and it’s incredible to compare that year with this one. Back then I had only just recently recovered from cancer and we were living totally off the grid in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. It was perfect. Fast forward to now and life is still perfect, but totally different.Read More
What a beautiful, crazy time of year! This week I got pulled over the police for driving an unregistered vehicle (was 2 days late with my bill) and I was so upset. Cried uncontrollably the whole way home. It felt good to just cry but man, it showed me how exhausted I am feeling as the year comes to a close. Being unable to drive for a few days has been an absolute blessing. I’ve spent a few days at home with the puppy Trudi (Davey is such a beautiful soul and is down in Brisbane with his parents while his Dad is in hospital) and it’s been productive and peaceful. I feel very happy to now let go of work for a few days over Chrissy and just be with my beautiful family.
Needless to say with this blog post title, I’m a little behind on a couple of gifts so here are my tips for last minute, sustainable Christmas shopping!Read More
My latest column for Nature & Health magazine is out and it’s all about fashion that gives back. It’s the perfect time of year for this article, when we can all go a little bit overboard with the gift-giving! If you are thinking about buying fashion for your loved ones this Chrissy, consider supporting a brand that is doing what they can to give back.Read More
