building a sustainable store

Nurturing the community through healthy organic products, one of Melbourne’s favourite organic supermarkets and holistic health centers, Terra Madre are thoughtfully adapting their business to better the earth. Co-owner of Terra Madre, Ryan talks about how they reduce waste, energy and greenhouse gas emissions across all areas of their business. “Organic food and sustainability go hand in hand. Organic food isn’t just about pesticide free produce, it’s about also looking after our plant and the world we live in.” From trading food scraps for chicken eggs, to investing in biodegradable packaging, Terra Madre truly practice what they preach.     “We are always looking to reduce our packaging.” Ryan explains, “Our main fruit and veg grower packages our orders in reusable foldable crates, polystyrene gets sorted and sent back to the farmers, along with the plastic shrink wrap used to protect the palettes.”

natural beauty, glowing skin from the inside out

Elise Cook is a famous Australian blogger, currently living in South Australia after one year travelling around the country. She shares with us the benefits of changing to organic and natural beauty products. “For the past 18 months, I have been choosing organic / natural beauty products. A simple realisation – why, if I care about what I put IN my body, am I not considering what I’m putting ON it? I’ve met people who have done a huge overhaul, throwing everything away and replacing all their products at once, but for me that would have been a little extreme (financially – as it meant changing all my makeup over) so I did it gradually.

bronzed sunset

I don’t know about you, but for me a sunset is the most beautiful vision to watch. It’s stunning, romantic, and it leads to my favourite part of the day, the night. Thinking of sunsets, I created this beautiful bronzed smokey look that´s wearable from dawn to dusk. Yes, you read right, a bronzed SMOKEY eye look. You might think that a smokey eye is only for celebrities and their MUAs, but that is not true. You too can achieve this sexy eyeshadow look! I know that this is one of the most feared looks to create because of the difficulty of the technique. I can show you how to create a simple bronzed tone eye, that anyone can achieve. Before we start, remember 2 key points: 1. Keep the darkest colour towards the lash line. It keeps the makeup modern and fresh, and ensures you are drawing more attention to the eye. 2. Blend, blend, blend. Brushes are super important to get the best blend. When it comes to a smokey eye, it doesn’t …

fathers, we love you

For the men who mentor us, show up and support, and who care for us. We love you. Treating the supportive male figures in our lives is special. Father’s Day is coming up in Australia, and this is a day to let our fathers know just how much we are thankful for them and how extraordinary they truly are. A day where we can honour our dads, grandfathers, or anyone who has stepped into those shoes of fatherhood. Showing the gratitude for all the love and support stretches further than just one day a year, but it’s lovely to be given the opportunity to show appreciation and adoration for everything they do for us. If like me, and you’re unable to convince your Dad to a pampering spa visit, try simply updating his skincare routine. Something foolproof, quick and effortless.

seasonal allergies & recipe for zucchini, eggplant and turmeric stew

Nutrition and wellness coach Lee Holmes of Supercharged Food shares with us her tips about Spring allergy food guide, and her recipe for a delicious zucchini and eggplant turmeric stew. “Spring loving, had me a blast. Spring loving, happened so fast. I met a girl, crazy for me. Met a boy, cute as can ah… ahh… ahh… ahchoo! Spring fever got you down? While Spring brings with it a sense of lightness, florals and warmth for so many, for others, the only thing that comes to mind when I say spring is suffering with sneezes and sniffles – bless you! If the very thought of seasonal change makes your nose itch and eyes water, you’re not alone. While you can plough through the anti-histamines, decongestants, tablets and sprays or even wear a mask to protect you from days with a high pollen count, there are easier ways to clear out seasonal allergies. And it all starts in one of my favorite places – the gut.
