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.

There is an increase for transparency in what we are consuming, much like eating clean and adjusting our diet choices.

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.

conscious living as a family

Stephanie Francis is a Freelance Photographer & Qualified Spa therapist. She is a full-time mum of three girls & strong advocate for conscious living and planet health. “At what point do we look around and realise our day-to-day habits have become unsustainable? When did we swap our basic humanity for convenience?  It is estimated we currently need 1.7 + planet earth to provide resources and absorb our waste. We are abusing our only home, the only place that can keep us alive… How embarrassing to hand this mess over to the next generation. But, I’m here to tell you we don’t have to! It is never too late to change!
