How to get a bikini body this Summer (Hint: it's not how you think!) January 26 2015, 0 Comments

 

Today on the blog is a very special guest post by Melissa Jeffcott - a life coach, mother of three and a beautiful soul! I met Mel at the Gabby Bernstein event in Melbourne a few weeks ago and was instantly drawn to her energy. I went home and checked out Mel's blog and was having a good old giggle at her honesty, authenticity and awesome sense of humour. Given it's still January and we are on the topics of resolutions, goals and intention for 2015 I thought this post would be perfect to share! In the media and in real life, women perhaps more than ever face the pressure of striving to achieve that perfect bikini body for Summer. Body image is such an important topic and Mel hits the nail on the head with her post. This is a read not just for mothers and those over 40. Mel's message is an important one for ALL women. I couldn't have conveyed the message better myself if I tried! To read the full blog post click here.

 


Are Green Smoothies just a fad? October 31 2014, 1 Comment

I made one almost every day during that month and I have to admit I did feel AMAZING! I really love smoothies particularly in the summer months but find them a little hard to take in winter. I wanted to call on an expert to give her opinion about green smoothies to clarify in my mind once and for all - are they just a fad? Introducing Julie Dargan from Dargan Vitality...

Why I've quit coffee October 25 2014, 2 Comments

Almost three weeks ago now I decided to quit coffee. I love the smell and love the taste but don't really like what happens afterwards to my poor belly! Grumble, grumble then a quick run to the nearest bathroom (sorry for the details).  

I've never been a coffee addict, but what started out as 1-2 coffees over the weekend had become a daily habit. Walking past my favourite coffee shop on the way to work smelling that delicious coffee scent, coupled with the cold winter made it hard not to stop off for my daily coffee. I loved chatting to the baristas and analysing our crazy dreams as my coffee was being created. It also made for a nice excuse to get out of the office to stretch my legs after sitting at my desk all day. Read the full blog post here.
