bask in the light

Light is an ephemeral quality that we just can’t live without! The rising and setting of the sun are the only events that happen every single day, no matter what. As they say, the sun always rises! Around the world, whether northern or southern hemisphere, light defines our lives and our lifestyles. As seasons change our worlds get darker in the mornings, lighter in the evenings, days stretch to midnight or fall short at 5pm. We are in a constant state of adjusting to how much light there is outside. This affects what we wear, how we eat, when we exercise, and what activities we can enjoy outdoors. This fluctuating state is universal and it can be said that in spring time, wherever you are in the world, as blossoms appear on trees and the air warms up, really, what we are most grateful for at the end of a long winter is more light in our lives. Light makes things grow – plants, trees, the food we eat; light also has an amazing ability …

We’re always so happy to collaborate with beautiful brands, and Edible Beauty is definitely one of them. Anna Mitsios, founder of Edible Beauty, firmly believes that we can all be beautiful by nurturing our body, mind and soul. Discover here one of her most recent bog post, where she shares how to take care of yourself and your body during pregnancy. “Whilst there is an abundance of information regarding foods to avoid during pregnancy, there lot of confusion around what women should be using on their bodies. This is equally important given we can absorb approximately 60% of what we put on our skin and given the placenta is not the barrier we once thought.

Our planet has given us everything we need to feed each and every one of our cells with and it’s in our foods, we just need to know the right things to eat so that our body understands what …

mothers I love you

As Mother’s Day rolls around the globe, I can’t help thinking about the extraordinary role that mothers play in society. They grow tiny humans in their own bodies, birth these little creatures into the big wide world and teach the newborn humans about many things that make this place beautiful and also, at times, scary. A baby is raised with the help of a village, a family, a team, a neighbourhood, a relationship, a marriage, grandparents, siblings, fathers, mothers, and any combination of all or none of the above – but on Mother’s Day, let’s all think of one mother we know and acknowledge her journey.

nurture your health

This month of May, GoodnessMe Box is running an exciting promotion with an amazing pack of Ere Perez essentials to win. An opportunity for us to share this interview of GoodnessMe Box Founder, Peta Shulman.

why eating at home can be good for us.

Right now I’m all about the simple pleasures in life that actually nourish me. Last weekend, I realised that I barely spent any time at home. I was on the go the whole time and by Sunday night I felt like I needed another weekend just to chill out and catch up with myself. The thing that made all of this more hectic was the current trend in noisy restaurants. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like sometimes the experience of going out to eat in a big city is more stressful than pleasant. You have to wait forty minutes for a table, once you finally sit down it’s so loud you have to strain your voice to talk and can barely hear the conversation at the table. There have been a few moments recently when I’ve thought it’s all got a little bit out of hand! Dining out sometimes feels just like an extension of a busy life – not enough space, long queues, people competing for tables and time – it can …

Her mission is to inspire women to follow their dreams. Maria would love to live in a world of empowered, happy and abundant women, and believes her vision is possible.
