green is beautiful

We all know we are meant to eat our veggies. While it is recommended that we eat from the full colour spectrum of vegetables, it is vital that we all get a daily dose of greens. For optimum health and beauty, greens are the way! Some people find this very easy, other people just can’t stand anything leafy or green. And while it may be overwhelming to sit down to a whole bowl of spinach, here are some easy ways to include greens into your diet, without making them the main event.

the baby business: how being a mum and a businesswoman gave me balance

Teen is a happy and modern mum from Bondi Australia. Read about her experience here. “It’s amazing how life can change and inspire you. When my baby girl turned one, I thought to myself ok what happens next? I didn’t want to leave this gorgeous little munchkin to go off to work, but I felt this bubbling creative desire to start something new and exciting for myself. As a new mum I struggled to find cool products for my daughter that also looked fashionable for me to use, and that was when the idea for Bondi Beach Baby was born: high quality beautiful organic fabrics for bub, in stylish cool prints for mum.

international day of peace

Peace is something we all want in the world – we dream of it, fight for it, and imagine a peaceful world. It can be overwhelming to look at all of the places in the world where peace seems currently out of reach. We feel helpless, like we can’t do anything to make things better. This may be true on a global scale, but we have huge power to affect positive change and peace in our own lives. It was Ghandi who famously said, ‘Be the change you want to see in the world,’ and these words ring true even now. 21 September 2017 is the International Day of Peace. We may not be able to single-handedly solve global struggles or wars between nations, but  can we see this day as an inspiration to invite more peace into our daily lives. Whatever peace means to you, September 21 is a great day to make a new intention to welcome peace into your lives, so you can share it with others…
