REVIEW: The Wellness Box by Bellabox

I was recently gifted a beauty subscription box from Bellabox. In this blog post I share my experience with a review of the Wellness box by Bellabox.

Bellabox is one of Australia’s first beauty subscription box services started by a group of young women who loved buying beauty products and looking good, but were sick of the hassle of going to department stores every time they wanted to try new beauty products.   They were sick of paying for expensive beauty products that did not live up to their standards and always feeling like they were six months behind the latest trends. From their frustrations, these gals made it their mission to find a better way and this is when Bellabox was born. 

Simple steps to a sustainable wardrobe

The fashion industry is now one of the biggest polluters in the world—second only to oil. Apply these simple tips to make your wardrobe more sustainable.

This topic is something I am working hard on personally in my life because we all have the responsibility of becoming more conscious and mindful consumers. 

Did you Australians are the second largest consumer of textiles in the world? Textile dyeing is also the the second largest polluter of clean water globally, after agriculture. When you start to get your head around the numbers it’s hard not to cringe….

Update your activewear featuring rebel

Brought to you in partnership with rebel.

Winter is the perfect time to reignite those health goals you set at the beginning of the year.  During those darker and slightly cooler early morning workout sessions we start reaching out for those winter warmers and it’s the perfect time to update your winter activewear!  

And what better motivation is there than to work out?  

This season I am loving the pink, deep reds, and florals mixed with my favourite neutrals. 

When shopping for activewear, I always consider the following…

I stopped drinking alcohol: Here is what happened

I have never considered myself a problem drinker, and that’s not why I quit.  I would say I would drink as much as the average Australian. Drinking alcohol made me feel less stressed, more confident, friendly, and generally more fun to be around and I felt more free.  It’s like when I drank I become another person, even if it just a happier, less stressed and better dancing person.

Animal print done right with Marks and Spencer

Spice up your winter wardrobe with these prints from Marks and Spencer.

Animal print is having a huge moment at the moment and I can’t get enough of it! I have teamed up with Marks and Spencer to show you how I styled my fave animal print pieces in their collection at the moment.

With a look for everyone occasion, you can dress up the print or dress it down depending what your vibes is. All the the pieces I am wearing are under $110.

Girls Weekend featuring the Best of Brisbane

With accommodation deals for your next Brisbane trip and a 5 night holiday up for grabs, this is probably one of the most exciting blog posts I have written this year!

If you have been following me on instagram you would know that recently I had the absolute pleasure of attending a fun filled girls weekend with seventeen other mums,  all with our hearts set on having one hell of a time.

Five sleeping hacks I have learned lately

Ensuring the quality of your zzzzz’s is the simplest and easiest way to improve your health and wellbeing. Sleep is when our body is at work healing, repairing and detoxifying and this process thrives in a supportive and toxin free environment.

It all started when my husband and I stayed at a suave hotel in Brisbane and I fell in love with the bed we were sleeping on.  It was from this moment when….

What's in my suitcase?

Our family is off for a short, and much needed, holiday to our favourite place in the world Hamilton Island this weekend.  I can’t wait to get back out to see the Great Barrier Reef and go snorkelling with the family. So what’s in my suitcase for this trip? In this post I share my favourite products to stay healthy and feel great while on holidays with all my travelling essentials!

February Wrap - The last of summer 2019

February has been such a busy month. From our wedding anniversary to crossfit comps, styling courses, wardrobe clear outs and sharing some of my natural beauty faves!

You may have seen that I have been doing a major clear out of my wardrobe and house. I stumbled across Josephine Eve Stylist who has this fabulous e-book on ‘How to declutter your wardrobe’ which you can find here.  I have literally stripped back my wardrobe to its bare bones, and have made over $1000 on ebay selling old clothes that do not serve me anymore. This also included sending five full bin bags to charity. This kind of clarity in my wardrobe feels amazing!

Summer Holiday 18/19 Wrap

This year, I am making the commitment to do a monthly recap of all the things I have been posting about on my Instagram page and stories because as you may have noticed, I like to get around. Most importantly, I think it will be a great way to showcase the lovely holiday destination in which I live, the Sunshine Coast. People from all over the world come here to visit and it's right in our backyard so it would be rude to not share what this amazing destination has to offer.

It’s halfway through January already and I need to pinch myself that we are in the ‘back to school’ mode already!  The school years are the busiest times for most families with the constant flow of washing and ironing school uniforms, school lunches, homework, extra curricular activities during the week and on weekends, sport, you name it, it doesn’t stop throughout the year!  Are you prepared for the year ahead but most importantly, are your kids?

Workouts to try with a friend featuring Aura Eve Booty Bands

After all the years I have spent training weights at a gym I always wondered why my glutes and hamstrings would never come to the party and always be the weakest part of my body. This was frustrating because at times this would stop me from progressing on some of those heavier lifts particularly in squats and deadlifts! When I started to do pilates I soon learned that to exercise our glutes we must activate them, and we can do this through simple and targeted exercises for this area!
