Organic Beauty

Bkind Organic Beauty Bar

Did you know there is an organic beauty bar in Perth? I didn't either until a terrible break-out made me decide it was time to make the switch to organic make-up (read about my skin troubles here). I found this little gem tucked away off the main highstreet in Subiaco. 

Bkind Organic Beauty Bar houses the best of organic and natural skincare, make-up, hair care, and perfume from around the world, including their own Bkind range (which I use) - it's a little mecca for any health and beauty enthusiast out there.

My Experience with Adult Acne

Part one

Yep I said it adult acne! It's bad enough that teenagers are plagued with acne but when it hits you in your adult life it feels doubly unfair. This is what happened to me, except I missed the whole teenage acne saga and jumped straight to the adult acne one. I really wanted to share my experience with you in case any of you out there are experiencing the same issue and are feeling the way I did. So I'll start from the beginning.

It's 2015 - Happy New Year!

Goal setting for a New Year

Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2015! "Where did the year go?" is pretty much how I feel about 2014.

So this blog was supposed to be a timely post, all ready for the 31st December, however my Mac Book had other ideas and got completely wiped - thanks Apple! It might be a little late but it's not too late for you to take the time for yourself and make some plans for the year ahead.

My favourite food blogs

My favourite food blogs

So I've been getting some questions about what I actually eat if I follow a plant-based diet?

I eat lots let me tell you, that's one of the benefits of eating a plant-based diet - you get to eat big plates of nutrient-rich foods. I totally get this quizzical response, because for most of us we've grown up with meat and dairy being the stars of the dish. Most cooks in the house plan a meal around what meat they've taken out of the freezer, so when I say I don't eat meat (poultry, fish, dairy and eggs) I always expect lots of questions to follow.

Why I follow a plant-based diet

Why I follow a plant-based diet

I'm not going to get into the health benefits or even the environmental benefits of following a plant-based diet (of which there are many). I am however going to tell you how following a plant-based diet helped me break free from a very destructive diet mentality, one that kept me in a cycle of deprivation and guilt and at times felt all consuming.

5 Tips for Mastering Consistency

5 Tips for Mastering Consistency

The beach has been a hive of activity recently. There are your usual walkers and runners, but recently there's been the addition of fitness groups either doing boot camp, pilates or yoga. 

This is nothing really new; by mid - October the weather starts to pick up and the realisation that bikini season is almost upon us hits. For some of us anxiety, regret and self loathing creeps in. Those familiar thoughts start to get a little louder; why didn't I exercise more during winter? Why did I eat all that chocolate? I wish I could look more like her. 

Sound familiar?

Raw Appeal

Raw Appeal

So I heard about Raw Appeal, a mini raw food event, happening at the Kitchen Warehouse, through the social media stratosphere. Best of all, it was just around the corner from me and was being conveniently held around lunchtime.
