UPDATE ABOUT MY NEW BOOK & A RECIPE FOR CREAMY CHAMOMILE TEA

  Phew. Six chapters completed, and three more to go. I've deeply enjoyed writing my next book, but oh! let me tell you, it's been quite a challenge, thats for sure. It's refreshing working on something other than a cookbook for a change, and I just know you are going to love it, my friends! A few of you have been asking, will there still be recipes? and yes, there will be a few dotted throughout the pages, amidst the other goodness. I've decided to share one with you today, as it simply can not wait until the book is...

SIMPLE WAYS TO REFRESH YOUR HOME

  How you keep your home, is essentially, how you choose to live. It should be a place that tells your story, and celebrates your day to day life. No matter how seemingly ‘finished’ your décor might be, an inspiring sense of change in your home is always welcome. The more you enjoy your home, the more you’ll take care of it.

SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT

SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT

There’s a story that’s all too familiar for many of us. It’s one where we are constantly striving for more…more money, more things, more success, more self worth. I too, had become fixated on chasing these things, in the hope that I would feel fulfilled, and to validate my happiness. It wasn’t until my family and I went through some challenging times, that I began to understand that the experience of struggle and difficulty is far more valuable than the experience of success...I began to discover a life that is much more simple, and in turn, much more enjoyable. I...

THE MANY REASONS TO TRY CLOTH NAPPIES

Perhaps the biggest concern with using cloth nappies is the perception of mess and inconvenience. You might have visions of scrubbing by hand, lethal safety pins, or mountains of laundry. This simply isn’t true, in fact you might even come to love them like I do. The average child will go through an estimated five to eight thousand nappies during those first few years. I hope you will take a moment to think about the energy, water and trees that are used to make this staggering number, let alone all of the plastic and chemicals in the process. Next, imagine...
