March: What I’m Loving Right Now

You know how sometimes you get hooked on a product, item of clothing or food and seem to just devour it for ages? This happens to me a fair bit. When I was a teen I was obsessed with Maggi 2 minute noodles. I would eat them as often as I could, and not much else. Oddly my mum thought I was anorexic (she clearly didn’t check the nutrition content) because I would be eating them once or twice a day. Fortunately I gave up that habit after a month or two, and now I’ve moved to far healthier obsessions. These […]

Super Soft, Fudge Brownies (Raw & Paleo)

I am a massive fan of a little sweet treat after dinner and where my boyfriend doesn’t oblige (TMI?), I reach for a piece of chocolate or a raw dessert. It’s a bad habit, but one I’m in no hurry to break.  This soft, fudgy brownie is the perfect ‘little something extra’. It’s nutty, it’s chocolatey, it’s soft and decadent, all while being 100% healthy and super good for you. 

How to Choose the Right Eyeliner Colour for You

How do you choose the best eyeliner and eye shadow colours for you? In the world of abundant choices in eye makeup things can get a little overwhelming. Do you choose your favourite colour, go with the same colour as your eyes or should you just stick to black? Here’s my guide to navigating through the sea of colour, to find your perfect match. This guide works equally well for determining suitable eye shadow colours too. You’ll see from the celebrity examples I’ve provided, they’re wearing a combination of eyeliners and eye shadows so you’ll really see how each colour works.

Cinnamon & Cacao Crunch for a paleo breakfast

Eating a good breakfast to start the day is a simple concept in theory. I’m sure we’ve all had grand plans of waking up a little earlier to prepare a nourishing breakfast, but when the alarm goes off all you want to do is head snooze and grab something quick a little while later. This is where breakfast cereals and toast have risen to becoming a breakfast staple around the world. Unfortunately, both options are generally completely devoid of any nutritional value and pumped full of sugar. Making your own is a far better option as you know exactly what’s […]

Getting Started with the Oil Cleansing Method

Want to try the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) but unsure how to choose an oil that’s best for you? Wash your face effectively with the right oil for your skin type. I’ve written the guide for you.  The OCM can sound a little overwhelming at first. Slathering your face with oil in order to clean it sounds a little odd, right? But it is surprisingly simple and yet so effective. If you’ve willing to try it but don’t know where to start, I’ve compiled an easy guide to assist you finding your perfect match. Consider though, everyone has different skin and […]

The missing step in your beauty regime: Oil Cleansing

Wash your face with the Oil Cleansing Method Face washes to me are generally overpriced and full of unnecessary ingredients. For a product that’s on your skin for under two minutes, it hardly seems necessary to pack them full of expensive ingredients that will just be washed down the drain. I would much rather use the best moisturiser than wash. A lot of people also complain about over drying caused by face washes. These products strip the oil out of our skin, leaving our largest organ trying to repair itself by replacing the oil stripped away. This leaves us in […]

Does Mukti Deodorant actually work? I’ve tested it

I’ve previously posted about the dangers of antiperspirants and some of my favourite all natural deodorants (to date). As promised, I’ve tried yet another natural deodorant. Mukti is a great Australian company producing a wide variety of all natural beauty products. Their deodorant is a roll on, and marketed to both men and women (genius!). Here’s my review.

How to cope with change

Happy Monday to all my lovely readers. You have no idea how much it means to me that you stumbled across my blog and chose to stay. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Right now I’m in a period of transition. My life is changing and subsequently, this space will be too. I love the metaphor of a caterpillar morphing into a butterfly. First, the caterpillar digests itself, releasing enzymes to dissolve all of its tissues. Then it reforms itself, before emerging as a new being. They’re fascinating creatures and so perfectly capture how to respond to change. We can either reject […]
