Fake thicker lashes with eyeliner

Apply eyeliner for thick lashes, using all natural cosmetics. You all know how much I love thick full lashes right? I used to be obsessed with lash extensions (till they destroyed my natural lashes) so now I fake it with makeup. Want to know my secret for making your eyelashes look way thicker than they actually are? This is how I apply eyeliner to fake thicker, plumper lashes. This look works for day and night because it doesn’t look overly fake. It just enhances what nature has given you. Fake lashes can be a tad obvious for day time wear. And […]

Chicken Tikka Masala (Paleo)

Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala is always a winner, especially now the weather is cooling down. Whilst the flavours are complex and delicious, it’s surprisingly easy to make. It’s also suitable for fussy eaters as it’s dairy and gluten free and jam packed with flavour. You know how curries are always better the next day? Well for this recipe we make it in the slow cooker, so it will taste amazing from day 1.   Curries are one of my favourite dishes, as you might have noticed. Why do I love them so much? They’re always super tasty but pretty easy to make. […]


Review: Luscious lashes with 100% Pure Black Tea Mascara

Good mascaras are hard to find, even if you’re still using the standard, department store types. After being blessed with blonde lashes (I’m trying to stay positive), mascara was one of the first makeup products I introduced into my life. Even after making the switch to green beauty products, I was so scared to give up my standard mascaras because I really didn’t think I could find a natural equivalent that would work. I was skeptical at first to try 100 Percent Pure Black Tea Mascara but I was, surprisingly, not disappointed! 100% Pure has put a tonne of R&D into delivering what […]

In reality, applying illuminator is one of the easiest ways you can fake younger looking, dewy skin. The easiest type of illuminator to apply is cream, like Ere Perez Face Versatile Vanilla Highlighter. It’s not hard to put on, and once you’ve mastered where to apply it, you’ll become addicted to how 3D and angular it makes your face look. Read my review and guide to applying.

Make Your Own Coconut Deodorant

Learn how to make your own, all natural coconut deodorant. Natural deodorants are the best! They’re aluminium free, non toxic and completely safe. Because they are so natural, you may find yourself recognizing the ingredients of your deodorant in your pantry. This is brilliant, because it means it’s super easy (and cheap) to make your own. This is my favourite recipe which utilises the power of coconut oil and baking soda. This creates a deodorant paste. Just wipe a pea-sized amount under each arm pit. Because it’s oil-based it will just melt in to your skin, and it easily washes […]

Listen to your gut

Learn how to listen to your gut

How do you know when it’s your head talking or your intuition? And how do you make decisions using your gut? I’ve put this post together to help make hearing your gut intuition a little clearer. Our minds tend to be hyperactive and we’re generally very conscious of what we think. For example, I think this is right, or I think this is a good idea. So often we are so busy thinking, we forget to listen. Our mind is even dictating what we think our body is telling us. Our body’s do communicate with us, but in more subtle ways than […]


Kombucha 102: How to bottle and carbonate

So you’ve finished Phase 1 of making Kombucha, and you’ve got a tangy, slighty-sweet tea that tastes ok, but not great. I promised you it was a tasty drink and you now you’re starting to wonder if I’m one of those health nuts who calls foul things nice, just because they’re healthy. Phase 2 of the process is where we make kombucha taste great, bottle it and naturally carbonate it. You’ll soon end up with a delicious fizzy drink that I promise you’ll love! Sometimes called second fermentation, but what I call the Flavour Phase. It is optional (some people do […]

Paleo Swedish Meatballs with Creamy Gravy

Paleo-compliant, Swedish Meatballs in a bed of creamy gravy. My partners turn to shop this week, so what have I got to cook with? Mince, chicken thighs and more mince. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on you taste) he has quite simple tastes when it comes to protein. It’s boneless chicken or mince. Both are great I will admit, but it’s hard to come up with something creative every night using virtually the same ingredients. I’ve been on a mission lately to find paleo mince recipes that don’t involved tomatoes. Last week I got Thai-inspired with Sticky Mince Stir Fry and this […]


Is Your Ego Out of Control? 4 Steps for Balance

A healthy ego is one that allows you to celebrate your self-worth without losing sight of the fact that others are important too. Being constantly insecure or desperate to establish your superiority is a sign that your ego is in need of some balance. An ego running unchecked and out of control can be damaging to your self esteem and sense of worth. What is ego? Ego means: I, self, or ones sense of self. It’s the identity we craft to give ourselves significance. I.e. I’m Abi, the environmental scientist, girlfriend, daughter, etc. In other words, who we believe we are. For […]

How to make Coconut Yoghurt

This is my simple “how to” guide to have you making your very own coconut yoghurt. I’ve got stove top and Thermomix instructions to make things even easier. This recipe’s paleo, which means dairy and grain free. Plus, it’s also vegan. Everyone wins! We know yoghurt is good for us. It’s packed full of live bacteria, the kind that heals our gut and strengthens our immune system. But you want to take dairy out of your diet, then you see the price of coconut yoghurt. Surely I’m not the only one who balks at paying more than $20 for 700g […]
