Book Review: Tales from The Back Row

Be a Part of The In Crowd: No ‘IT’ bag required Ever wondered how the fashion industry works but felt a bit too unfashionable to ask about it? Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one. Amy Odell a self proclaimed fashion ‘outsider’ (who is arguably quite the insider nowadays as the editor of Cosmopolitan mag) provides all the mortals a sneak peek into the fickle, fascinating and flamboyant world that is...

Book Review: Man Repeller

Leandra Medine is my spirit animal. A long-long time ago a much-less-well-versed-in-the-World-of-blogging version of myself stumbled across a site called ‘Man Repeller‘. Intrigued by the title and the goofy woman dancing on my screen in GIF format, I sat down for a perusal with a cup of tea. One cup of tea turned into ‘all the tea in China’ (ok… slight exaggeration but you get the drift) as I went through...

Book Review: Time Money Happiness

  Time is money. Money can’t buy happiness. Happiness is our natural state of being.   Buzz phrases like this are everywhere in our mainstream media and injected in our personal psyches, but how often have you sat down to really ponder what time, money, and happiness really mean to you? Does time equate to money in your life or do you just do what you love without adding a price tag to the hours you put into it?...

Book Review: The Blender Girl

  This delicious book hasn’t got much to do with sustainable or eco fashion but is a bit of a carry over from last months ‘Nourish’ blog theme focus. I came across The Blender Girl cook book the day before I was having my wisdom teeth out. It has been a brilliant companion over the last couple of weeks and has provided lots of cooking inspiration! During my post op ‘solid food ban’ I spent a great...

Thrive: Get Moving

For six weeks now I have been participating in the Thrive O-course. Some of you may be aware of my long term obsession with the message behind Arianna Huffington’s ‘Thrive‘ book of refining the measures of success beyond the duopoly of ‘money and power’ and this six week long journey has cemented my obsession with her teachings. I worship at the shrine of Huffington 😉 One of the key ideas put forth by...

Book Review: Thrive E-Course

You may remember me raving over and over again about the joys of Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Book. Turns out Oprah likes it too. In fact Oprah and Arianna have got together to offer us a six week long course based around putting the wisdom of Thrive into action. The course contains over forty lesson videos from Arianna that are all centred around the Thrive book (FIY it is a ‘required reading’ of the e-course). The...

Book Club: The Artist’s Way: Wk 12

  Do you hear the sound of a thousand tiny violins? Or is it just me hearing them? Sadly my The Artist’s Way journey has reached it’s conclusion this week and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t desperately miserable to see it end. Have I enjoyed myself?  Yes! Immensely. Has it been the longest and most frustrating twelve weeks of my creative life?  Yes! Would I do it all over again?  Hell Yes! When do we start?...

Book Club: The Artists Way: Wk 10 & 11

  OMG what a busy and creatively fulfilling two weeks I have had. Many apologies that book club has been MIA but once you unleash the creative beasts within it can be hard to rein them back in again. The focus of the Week 10 readings and tasks were recovering a sense of self protection for the ‘perils’ that can ambush us on our creative path. While week 11 addressed artistic autonomy, or how we will continue to...
