I am so excited! I’ve worked on this here video for a good couple of weeks, overcome a few technical difficulties and made a few things creatively that I never have before. It’s a bit rough, you can hear all the background sounds (planes, birds, cars), there are watermarks I can’t get rid of and I had to correct a few things that I forgot while filming, but I’m proud. It’s done! And I think you might just love it!
I know it’s not Game of Thrones, but at least while you wait for that, you can take 10 minutes to enjoy my new format/intro. And I’d love to see you make the recipe! It truly is delicious, and simple to boot.

Cultivate Calm Yoga is a beautiful yoga space in East Brisbane, providing a range of different yoga practices and teachers to bring calm and balance to the lives of busy Brisbanites. With our shared interest in stress relief, relaxation, yoga (of course) and anxiety, I was asked to share my best nutritional tips for dealing with and relieving anxiety.
There’s something about a cup of tea that brings a small joy to my day and soothes my heart that little bit. The simple ritual of hot water and tea leaves brings a stillness of a moment just for me – which, in a world of perpetual busyness can be enough to remind me to be mindful and check in with how I am doing that day.

On Friday morning, slightly bleary-eyed, I woke up with the excited realisation that today was the day I had come here for; I was going to the Bupa Blog Awards!
To give you an idea of how excited I was, I was dressed, make-up and hair done and purse packed and ready an hour and a half before I needed to leave, and my goodness, was I impatient! I decided that as I had a spare ticket, I would invite one of the other hostel guests to be my plus one, and luckily for me, Mitch, the American (who to my extreme jealousy was going to see Ben Folds live at the freaking Opera House that night!) had just purchased some clean duds to wear to such an event, and just happened to be free.

Its no secret that my favourite tea in the history of tea, is Earl Grey.
My Mum always has a box of it hand just for when my sister and I go to visit, I rave about it so much, I’ve been known to inspire others to venture into the world of Earl Grey tea (especially French Earl Grey) and I’ve got some friends that keep a box handy for when I pop by. My purse constantly has a strong scent of bergamot because I insist on carting bags of earl grey around, just in case, and most birthdays and Christmases I’m given some variation of T2’s French Earl Grey products (my special occasion tea). Earl Grey tea is my jam! (so to speak) Continue reading
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably noticed that I really really (REALLY) love tea. I love a hot cup of earl grey on a cold and slow morning, I love a bubbly and naturally sweet iced tea in the summer time, I love collecting new flavours and I even bathe in the stuff! But the thing I love most about tea is discovering the medicinal properties of the different herbs – meaning that you can drink specific teas to help your body do its thing!
From time to time, I’d like to explore with you these medicinal properties (goodness knows I need another reason to drink more tea, don’t I?) in my Tea Fiend series. Just remember, if you are going to explore these options, best to opt for organic tea (I’d be happy to give you a guide to my favourite brands within this series – just ask!), and don’t be afraid to try a pre-made blend (it will only taste better that way) or even experiment in blending stand-alone herbs that you like (you never know what you will come up with).
