Skincare, the liver, and reducing our toxic load.

The only thing I ever want is for people to do the best that they can, no matter what it is. Try and fail? It’s better than not trying at all, right? We plod along, we dip and we weave, we rise and fall, and most of all, we learn what works for us along the way. It’s something that wasn’t always fostered in me when I was growing up and I’m still figuring out how to move through my fears to give something a go rather than let it hinder me trying. It’s incredibly important to me, so, I’m going to just do my best anyway.

Recently, I’ve had something on my mind that I didn’t quite know how to talk to you about, because, for starters, I’m not about to get all preachy about anything – yuck! – but also, when I apply this to my own life, I do the best that I can. I take the information that I have with a grain of salt, weigh up the risks with the benefits and figure out the best way it can fit in best with my life.

What am I talking about exactly? Continue reading

Cook Like a Pro! (aka. Flavour Bases That Will Make Anyone Think You’ve Got Your Shit Together)

The thing about being a grown-up, is that, even if you aren’t the sort of person who cooks, you may find yourself in a position where you need to cook for others. It might be for some friends after a sunny Saturday at the markets, some in-laws, or for a sexy date you’ve been seeing lately, but, every now and then, it happens. Now, I’m not saying that you need to “impress” people (it’s just not my bag to think that way), but when it comes to food, I want to enjoy all of my meals and for those I share with to enjoy them too. There’s something uniquely satisfying about sharing love with your food and magically silencing an entire table in a unison of gratification.

But, sometimes that can seem like a daunting task of endless dirty dishes – and nobody like dishes! While, I am known to use every pot and pan in the kitchen occasionally, in my experience, you can make some incredibly impressive food that does just that with hardly any effort or mess at all.

Creating the Life You Want to Live: How our unconscious values can interfere with our dreams

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about creating the life that I want to live.

I feel like I’ve allowed my low income over the past few years let me become complacent, because I’ve let myself believe that money is what I need in order to be happy. It’s not like I feel like I want to be able to be wasteful with my money or anything, but I guess that living from pay to pay for so long now has changed my values about money, and since I’ve become more proactive; started my business, found a home that accommodates the life that I want to live and actively looked for like-minded people who are building their businesses in the wellness industry here in Brisbane, I’ve realised how messed up my values about money are, and how much they have and still do affect my everyday life.

The Truth About Overcoming Depression

Depression.

It can be a pretty hard topic to talk about. We know how common it is, but because it is associated with suicide, self-harm and feelings of sadness in general, it can be hard to bring depression up without the sombre feelings surrounding it.

I, like many other Australian’s have suffered depression, and if you yourself have been depressed at one stage or another, I don’t need to tell you just how much depression sucks. Continue reading

Hiking Lamington National Park:: Mira’s Mates: Miranda Vlogs

A couple of weeks ago some of my favourite people organised a hike for us at a place called Binna Burra in Lamington National Park, South East Queensland. It was a day filled with so many fascinating conversations, and we all had something we could teach one another as we walked the altogether 17km.

Being in nature with people that I love; it was a perfect day.

This short video hopefully captures the adventure and shenanigans of the day, (complete with dorky nicknames) and is soundtracked by the gorgeous 19th Century Strongmen, whose EP you can purchase here for $4 (it’s a beautiful collection of work, and I highly recommend it). They also have a YouTube channel and Facebook page. The song is called, “Let’s Go”.
