We can often neglect the sides of our body in everyday life. Sitting at desks, driving and even eating, sees us in forward-facing movement. Simply put, lateral bends are not that common in our daily lives, yet there are incredible benefits to be gained from that movement…Read More
I bought this tee whilst on holidays in Bali recently. Not only do I love the messaging, but the company that made it, In The Soulshine, produce ethical, sustainable fashion made with organic cotton and packaged in biodegradable bags. Lately there is a real shift towards sustainability in fashion…Read More
Over the years I have made a few different varieties of cashew nut milk. This one is my absolute favourite for mixing into porridge, breakfast cereals or hot chocolates/chai lattes and any other mouth watering beverage. It is a slightly sweeter milk which I love for bringing out the flavour of these these warm treats. ..Read More
Do you ever wonder how many miles you've scrolled with your thumb? I have swapped incessant Insta scrolling in favour of reading real-life actual books after work.
In search of feeling zen, getting my OM on and being a bit more blissed out, I am making a real effort to reduce my use of technology in the evenings. I have even started a bookclub with some friends and am making my way through books at a rate that the Cookie Monster munches on those choc chip goodies.
Here are some book recommendations from fiction to biography to cooking…Read More
I am a self proclaimed hummus and curry queen! These are my two go-to dishes, that I continually make and experiment with. It tends to be 'flavour of the month' with me, and once I find a new recipe I play it on repeat, like a Britney song, until I can bear it no more.
Right now, it's "Pumpkin Curry & Roast Carrot Hummus Month". My old faithful (roasted red pepper) hummus has been overshadowed by a new, sweeter kid in town.Read More
I visited Where Pigs Fly, just outside of Sydney, to meet Bubbles the piglet and the other beautiful creatures that live there. Where Pigs Fly is an animal sanctuary dedicated to the shelter and care of farmed animals. The most abused types of animals on this planet. It was really hard to comprehend that the wonderful animals we met would be DEAD and most likely EATEN had it not been for rescuers and the people at Where Pigs Fly…Read More
This Chickpea Tikka Masala is my new FAVOURITE thing to make. There are so many flavours and it's really rich, creamy and 'meaty' due to the mushrooms. The original recipe is taken from The Happy Pear's new book 'Recipes for Happiness'. This is my *slightly* modified Tikka Masala recipe for all my fellow coriander haters! Definitely a crowd pleaser.Read More
After feeling mugged off (geddit?!) from the lack of tea here in Oz, I had a tea-rrific Sunday afternoon brewing up my own concoctions at the T Totaler Tea in Newtown. Sydney is known for its fantastic coffee but being Irish (and having lived in London for 7 years) I am a tea drinker at heart. A cup of tea solves ALL woes…Read More
I've discovered some amazing products this month including these BANGIN' lippies that give MAC a run for their money!
I've always loved the creativity of make-up, especially after did a course at the LA MakeUp Academy when I thought I wanted to work in special effects make-up a few years ago! My dresser was stacked with colourful products and I never really thought about what went into making these. I am now making a conscious effort to shake up my make-up bag with fantastic cruelty-free products.Read More
These balls are one of my favourite things to make as a snack! Well, to be honest anything that tastes like Nutella gets my vote. And these are DELISH...not to mention SO easy to make and involves ZERO actually cooking.Read More
