I’m writing this blog because I used to take the pill without any idea of what it was actually doing to my body, & after a health scare at the age of 26, I started seriously researching and learning more about the pill and how it worked.
HOW TO FEEL ALIGNED & FULL OF JOY, EVEN WHEN LIFE GETS OVERWHELMING
Picture yourself holding a cup of water. Then watch yourself pour a little bit of water out of the cup every time you deal with the everyday responsibilities of life - helping clients at work, caring for your family, listening to your friends, organising finances, running errands, fixing problems, emptying your emails, running late, etc.
Many of us are left at the end of the day with an empty cup, wondering why we feel so tired, overwhelmed and frazzled. But then we proceed to do it all the next day... we work hard to fill up the cups of people and things around us, yet we never stop to refill our own cup.
Omega fatty acids are healthy fats that are an essential part of our overall health and wellbeing. You’ve probably heard people talking about eating more fish or taking a fish oil supplement to get more omega-3 fatty acids into the diet… but there’s much more to the story when it comes to optimal health (and you don’t actually need to eat fish to get the benefits!)
My life is crazy full. I’m constantly juggling multiple areas of my business, team members, meetings, new ideas and brand building, podcasting, clients, finances, my own health… While still trying to have a social life, spend time with family, nurture my relationship, travel, and enjoy life…
People often ask me how I do it all, and my answer is always my solid daily routine!
Wifi fails, computer + tech explosions, flights + travel plans melting, communication breakdowns , traffic is hellish, it’s like everyone around you has suddenly gone mad, you’re unable to finish sentences or remember what you were about to say & you find yourself getting into bizarre arguments about nothing at all. Yup, everyone please stand up and clap your hands for The Mercury Retrograde. You are BACK you mofo. You’ve arrived at our front door in all your hot mess glory. You are our unwanted but regular house-guest. You stumble in, knock over our valuables, spill red wine on the new fluffy ikea rug, leave crumbs all over the floor and hog the remote. Then, as quickly as you arrived, you disappear again, leaving us all slightly gob smacked but much better equipped to continue on with life. How do we deal with you?
A word of warning 🙃 this is not a blog for the faint hearted bloke. But this is certainly a blog for every single female out there who's over their period being that unwelcome guest every month. So if there's one thing you do today, you must let me school you on menstral cups today.
5 NATURAL ANTIBIOTICS MOTHER NATURE PROVIDES FOR US 🌱
It used to be so habitual for me to go straight to the doctor to get a prescription when I would turn ill or have some type of infection 🤦🏼♀️ I mean I was a registered nurse I was conditioned to think this was the only way. I was never educated on how good is medicine until I went out of my way to learn about it & I think a lot of people still have no idea that antibiotics often prescribed can potentially wind up doing more harm than good in our bodies 💊🚫
We wed amidst bright tropical foliage and the sparkling sea, under the full moon and incorporated meaningful details to our day to create a memory that reflected our love story. We're so obsessed with how the day turned out & so excited to share the details with you. From our pre ceremony festivities & games, our incredible team who made the day perfect for us & our dancefloor that turned into a crazy rap battle & dance off.
TOP 7 HEALTH TIPS FOR THE BOSS GAL BUSIER THAN BEYONCE
I totally get it. There’s not enough time in the day, so many emails to read, a never ending to do list, your memory is shot AF, your always running late, you could sneak away for a nanna nap on the daily, you have to drag yourself to the gym and by the time dinner rolls around you’re scratching your head trying to figure out where you might be able to find a healthy pizza to munch on because cooking is the last thing you're about to do...
I've written a travel blog on Bali before with all my must do's, fave healthy eats, awesome surf spots and killer locations to visit - a compilation of previous trips smushed together in one blog. But this time around, we did Bali totally different - we totally spoiled ourselves hehe - and it was incredible. I thought I'd share location details of all my Instagram Snaps & YouTube clip for you, so you can add a little luxurious goodness to your upcoming trip... x

Are you someone who has always wanted to try yoga? Maybe you've started but you're not really vibing like everyone else. Maybe you're on a health quest trying to find the answer, be it fitness or spiritual... and you feel like the answer is in yoga, but you can't really see what all the fuss is about?
Its funny. When I look back on my teenage years in high school, I honestly thought that my skin issues would eventually subside one day. I never thought that at the age of 27 years old, I would still be dealing with the battle of acne and the snowball of emotions, thoughts and feelings that came along with it...

Since coming back from my latest trip I’ve been inundated with requests for our itinerary details, so here's my step by step guide to Bali.

Everybody be drinking this weird drink with growing organisms in it, it's apparently meant to improve gut health, meant to be better than taking a probiotic and it's more expensive than my fave wine at $12 a bottle, you think its weird... but you want some right?! Want the deets on the latest 'in thing' in the health world?
For those who are wondering why It looks like Im doing many different things at once alongside my nutritional coaching career, I’m also a part time anaesthetic nurse at a hospital on the Gold Coast, Australia. I was fortunate enough to have been selected to join a maxillary facial team this year and travel across to the other side of the planet (which seemed to me more like landing on a completely different planet) to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). These are my experiences in words and photos, that just won't give any justice unless you go yourself.
Trekking through the Virunga jungle was one of the most amazing things I have ever done in my life. Climbing a steep incline 2700m above sea level (I take my hat off to those who train/trek in high altitude… so hard!) in the middle of Africa, we came across a beautiful little family of Mountain Gorillas. As we sat in their nest and watched them play, eat, groom and rest… we were told the amazing story behind this family…
Have you tried a million diets, detoxes and get slim quick fixes? Some may have worked, but what I know to be true is that they're not realistic or sustainable, and your quick results are just as quick to leave you. Come and learn about carbs, proteins & fats and how to use them to your advantage... no fads or detoxes here.
Here is a perfect example of how you can substitute almost anything when you need to make a last minute healthy something, all raw food ingredients, no dairy, no sugar, or gluten and totally guilt free.
A fairly controversial topic … the debate behind dairy and why we shouldn't eat or drink it. With nutrition being ever-evolving science, with literally thousands of dietary theories out there that all contradict each other, I know some may not want to agree with this...
Here's my simple and effective goal setting activity that I take on quarterly. Go ahead and try this activity, you'll love yourself for it. It will get your gears going and have you motivated to start the new year off with a bang!
I know the passion and the drive pumping through your veins, you’re totally dedicated to being successful but the life of a business owner can become predictably repetitive, and not for the best. Life follows something along the lines of waking up, long work hours, erratic eating habits, introverted-ness (who has time to socialise, we’re building an empire..right?), minimal sleep, repeat. Sound familiar? There’s this temptation to work on all these new and exciting concepts and all of a sudden your well-being is like, so yesterday.
