Hi guys!

As most of you would know, Im a bit of a supplement junkie. Im always on the hunt to improve my health, body and wellbeing. Something I hadn't really considered until recently is that we can also take supplements to enhance our brain function! How cool is that?! They are called 'nootropics' and they include ingredients that enhance cognitive capabilities (often times in the form of herbs, vitamins, minerals and/or oils).

There are multiple brands out there that are adding nootropics to their range. Bulletproof has their Brain O...

"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.

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?

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...

I felt inclined to share a snippet of my experience from the weekend retreat I recently attended in sunny and healing, California.

Most of us attending didn't even know exactly where we were - but we loved it that way. Secluded with no access to technology and no other intention but to connect with each other.

This self-enlightenment focused retreat was created and hosted by the powerful Christine Hassler, whom I've been following religiously for the last few months. Her wise outlook on the world partnered with insight on how to impleme...
