I was at a workshop over the weekend called Medicine Cabinet Makeover and it was all about using essential oils to keep you and your family healthy. We ended up having some great discussions (as we usually do at these kinds of events!), and there was one comment made that really struck a chord with me. The comment was this:
So yesterday was Valentine’s Day. I’ll be totally honest with you, usually I’m not a big Valentine’s person – I kind of think it’s a giant marketing ploy to sell loads of red roses at ridiculously marked up prices (but if that’s your thing, go for it! Each to their own I say!). However yesterday I decided I’d totally shock the hubby by doing something nice for him.
(Side note: Not that I don’t do nice things for him, on the contrary. Read the rest of this post »
Lately I feel like I’m a juiceaholic. I’m literally craving them! Is that normal?? I wake up and almost straight away I’m thinking, what veggies do I have in the fridge? There’s some kale, oh I need a cucumber, I think there’s some carrots left over, did I have any lemons left? I can’t start my weekend without juice!!
The hubby, on the other hand, is a smoothie addict. He’s all about the almond milk, banana, cacao powder, maca powder, and whatever else he can find to throw in there (I would love him to be on the juice wagon with me, but hey, each to their own right?). Read the rest of this post »
It might be almost two weeks’ late but… Happy New Year!! I personally love the new year. I love the ritual of shutting the door on the year before, and opening the door on the new possibilities of the year ahead. It’s not like anything actually happens, the sun rises just like every other day, but yet it brings so much hope and optimism and inspiration to people the world over.
It makes you feel like you have a clean slate, you can make a fresh start, and anything that happened before is wiped away. Read the rest of this post »
So let’s take a look back at our year, shall we?
When I think about reviewing my year, I’m not thinking about what went on in the world. I’m thinking about what went on in my heart, in my mind, and in my soul. How did I grow, learn evolve, exist? Read the rest of this post »
So you might have also noticed (along with the rising temperatures) that around this time of year people start to think about the things they did, and the things they didn’t do over the last 12 months. Things they want to do, or things they tried to do but failed at first time around (or maybe second or third time around, as the case may be). Read the rest of this post »
I was actually a bit hesitant about writing this blog because in all honesty, it’s difficult to find the right words to describe just how magical my time in Bali was! It’s not very often that you find yourself surrounded by like-minded people, accepting, non-judging, supportive and full of love and gratitude. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced anything like it before, and if I ever experience again then I will call myself a very blessed individual!
Of course, day one I was pretty nervous. Read the rest of this post »
Hello from Bali! Or more specifically, Ubud – mecca for yogis and nature lovers alike. And for me, being both of those, it’s pretty much paradise. If you don’t follow me on Facebook then you might be wondering why I’m here, so let me give you a bit of a breakdown of what’s happening at the moment.
I’ve basically taken a three-week hiatus from my normal life to immerse myself in all things yoga. To live, breathe, eat and sleep my yoga teacher training. Read the rest of this post »
It’s time to get really clear on your goals. When it comes to our health, sometimes we think we know what our goal is, but we’re actually looking at it from completely the wrong angle. So then what happens? We don’t reach our goals! Because we don’t really know what they are!
It’s all about understanding your true motives, and your underlying desire, for wanting the thing that you want.
I was thinking about this today when a good friend asked me why I was heading off to do my yoga teacher training. Read the rest of this post »
I’ve just spent the weekend hanging out with a few billion (or so) of the wrong kind of germs, resulting in a Saturday night snuggling on the couch with the hubby watching a couple of movies and feeling a little sorry for myself. Only sorry for myself because of my cold – the snuggling bit was actually pretty wonderful and almost made being sick worth it. Read the rest of this post »
