Vanilla-Chiaseed Mylkshake

As a girl one of my favourite things was a cold vanilla milkshake. Usually made with lots of sugar, dairy milk, ice-cream. Definitely not a healthy way to get re-energized, in my opinion. Throughout summer I like to make each member of my family a juice daily, & a smoothie or ‘mylkshake’ (the truefood alkalising energizing mylkshake […]

EXERCISE = EMPOWERMENT

Lets talk about exercise! No rather… let’s talk about EMPOWERMENT and how wonderful it is to feel powerful, healthy and sexy (or beautiful) in one’s own skin. I’ve always been an exercise lover.

A BEAUTIFUL ALKALINE BODY

Did you know that you can actually make your body more beautiful, simply by becoming more ‘alkaline’?

Autoimmune Generation

Below are a couple of pictures of me with my beautiful mum – Maria Grace. They were taken over a year ago, at a time when she was much more the vibrantly healthy person I remember. My mum has been struggling with an undiagnosed autoimmune condition for over 15 years now. Although she has some […]

SUMMER IN OZ

What’s your favourite season? Are you obsessed with Winter coats, layering and snuggly fireplaces? I must say the feeling of jumping into the car turning on the heater full blast whilst drinking copious amounts of green tea on the way home from a Winter surf is one of my favourite cold weather moments.
