The Science Behind Yoga.

Bending and stretching quantified. If you have been checking out the Instagram feed over the last week you might have noticed that I’ve been off Yoga-ing up. The last post gave you a bit of a wrap up of all the awesome folks I met at Wanderlust and today I spent the afternoon at Yogafest (which is still happening all weekend if you are a Sunny Coaster). Peppermint mag asked me to do a bit of a summary of Wanderlust over on their...

Label Love: Wanderlust Edition 2016

Soulful Connections. Last years Wanderlust Label Love wrap up was quite steeped in bendy-stretchy yoga-ness. Surprisingly this years Sunny Coast festival ‘Mindful Markets’ had a bit of a variety of eye catching goodies and the peddlers of such goodies were all so charismatic and kind I just had to share them with you. So from beauty to jewellery and back again the following are a bunch of goodies that I happened to stumble...

Info for Yogis and wannabe yogis alike! Taking a break from our regular program of all things style and sustainability related to talk yoga. Why?

I’m off to Wanderlust Sunshine Coast tomorrow with the Peppermint Magazine crew to talk all things Peppermint with the Wanderlust attendees while squeezing in some yummy yoga breaks in between. While it’s all well...

If you are eco minded it can be even more challenging to stay positive as we are hearing an increasing number of facts about the negative impact that our  actions of past are having now, and are expected to have in the future. While it’s important to be aware of...

Sleep Well and Look Good

Sleeping Beauty had it worked out. We all know it but not all of us are game to admit it- no amount of coffee or concealer will make up for a restless night. Sleep is one of those wonderful things in life that is free, makes us look and feel good, and can be as easy as closing your eyes. However, for some of us (my dear hubby included) sleep isn’t all that easy! We have busy schedules, parental demands (fur babies included), and...

Book Review: A guidebook to sanity

A guide book to sanity. As you may have noticed things have been a little quiet here for a few days now. My apologies. Lots have been happening outside of the computer screen. Some have been good things, one sad, and a few were productive. Anyways, I was off visiting my good friend Katie from EcoBling at her tree top home in the Sunny Coast hinterland when I happened to come across an incredibly apt book for a woman who lives in a...

Getting Back To Nature.

So many worries and so little time! In a world where we spend hours in front of screens or behind the wheel (wearing out sets of tyres), caring for other, and working around the clock we can sometimes become a little lofty and stressed. This lofty feeling can result in illness, brain chatter (those thoughts that keep you awake all night), brain fog, depression, and unhealthy addiction. Retail therapy is just one example of how we...

The Importance of Downtime

Time Out Hey folks. Sorry I’ve been a bit quite. I took some unplanned time out to get stuck into some gardening, mountain climbing, book writing, and catching up on many of the things I had neglected in order to tend to end-of-semester uni requirements. My writing journey for The Closet Scientist (a book that bridges the gap between  classic how-to style book, hard hitting academic-research based-fashion focused cultural...
