Hi guys!

Below is a link to a video interview I did with the lovely Harry Hadfield of Harry Makes It Up. She has an amazingly informative youtube channel, about all things makeup and beauty and she asked me so come onto her channel and talk all things Organic Beauty. Some products I'm loving to use at the moment to keep that skin clear, moist and glowing are included in this video. Harry also has some great recommendations to add extra colour and sparkle to your complexion after you've treated your skin to some salubrious products!

"Do I have a healthy relationship with social media, notably Instagram?" A question that has occupied my head space on far too many occasions, thus concluding the answer is most probably no. Given the amount of time it can take and energy it can use up in a day, I feel it’s worthy of a mention, and like any relationship we have in life it can be beneficial to take a good, hard and honest look at whether it is benefiting you or not, and if there could be a better way to relate to it so that you are still looking after yourself.

We live...

I know it has been a while! My modeling schedule has been fairly hectic and when I'm here there and everywhere it makes it difficult to sit down and make the time to write. Although, I became ill twice in the space of only 2 months - first time with a flu in February that seemed to hit me like a ton of bricks - I don't remember feeling that ill since I was in primary school. Then possibly due to low immunity, or so it seemed, I contracted another virus that was like a cold.

I've started going to an amazing sanctuary aka The Den Meditat...

Honoring ourselves is a thing often overlooked. 

“Oh, I’ll get around to meditating tomorrow.”

“I’ll take that yoga class sometime soon.”

Ironic, because if we don’t take time to care for ourselves, how can we be our best selves, most competent workers or fully present with our partners? Are we expecting someone else to provide us with the comfort and care that we crave?

We must prioritize ourselves first and foremost, and know that it IS possible to comfort ourselves. And no, this is not being selfish (a common miscon...

I don’t know about you, but personally I can officially say I am somewhat of a chocolate addict. Since before I can remember, I have needed a daily fix of this magical bean and anyone who knows me well knows I need a fix after pretty much every meal.

My obsession has become one of a healthier nature however, replacing my dark 85% chocolate bar with drinkable concoctions made from the raw cacao bean. Cacao is a plant based medicine, having healing abilities when ingested in its’ raw and most pure form.

I recently took part in a ‘Cacao Ce...

A huge factor in finding balance has to do with our state of mind and awareness. We are living in an age that is abundant in easy-to-find information on almost every topic imaginable but what negative impact can this have on other aspects of our being? It’s creating a world which has a spiritual deficit, which means that there’s not enough of us that feel as connected to the highest and greatest parts of ourselves that we could be amongst the constant distraction.

One of my favourite authors and leaders, Wayne Dyer wrote a book called...

In my last post, I touched on the topic of essential oils and how beneficial they can be to finding balance and helping with physical and emotional ailments. I’ve been exploring them a lot lately to help me feel energized, rejuvenated, balanced and calm. There’s a lot of conflicting information and testimonials out there regarding ingesting them, and whether this can be harmful or not. Given my sensitive body, I’d rather use them externally or in a diffuser as the benefits can be very similar to ingesting. Here are the essential oils...
