Good skincare is something I have always prioritised. I've written about my skincare routine before (here and here), but I get asked about it a lot so I thought I'd write a little update on what I'm doing as the cooler months roll in.
I like to incorporate some weight training into my fitness regime for strength and toning, and I love anything that works my glutes (who doesn't?). I've found that the exercises below target my glutes in the best possible way. Plus they also work my legs and core.
Recently, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by George Siosi Samuels for the It Will Come Show. We chatted about my Instagram account, how it all started and some of the lessons I've learnt along the way.
Last week, I had the pleasure of experiencing a spin class at Bodhi & Ride to test out some new Adidas gear. It was an early morning session so I was a bit tired on arrival, but by the end of it I was full of energy and ready to get stuck into my day!
Finding a skincare routine that works for me has been a bit of a process. I've experienced pretty much everything over the years (often as a result of doing all the wrong things): oily skin, blackheads, acne, dry skin, sensitive skin.
I had never heard of Satellite Island a few weeks ago. Probably because it's an isolated, private island located off the coast of Bruny Island, which is off the coast of mainland Tasmania (so it's an island off an island off an island). When I found out that I was going to be doing an outdoorsy photoshoot there with Lululemon, I googled it and got VERY excited.
On Saturday morning, I started my day with the killer 'Bayside Booty' class at Total Reformation's health and wellness studio in Brighton, Melbourne. And before I get into the details, let me tell you that 48 hours later my booty is still burning (in the best way!).
Recently, I was lucky enough to spend a weekend at the Westin hotel in Melbourne for the Spring Wellness Workshop, hosted by two of my gorgeous friends: Sarah Holloway (Co-Founder of Matcha Maiden) and Sally O'Neil (Founder of The Fit Foodie and Fit Mixes).
Recently, I've noticed that a few little things have actually made a big difference to my fitness. You might think it's all about working out, but a couple of the things actually have nothing to do with exercise. My list is probably blindingly obvious to some of you, but I thought I'd still share my thoughts.
When I found out about the work undertaken by Melbourne-based non-profit organisation Feel Good Food Packs, I was so excited to get involved and spread the word. Based on the philosophy that everyone deserves access to healthy food, their amazing team pulls together healthy snack packs and distributes them to people experiencing homelessness.
Have you been to Ballarat? I think my last trip there was in primary school on a visit to Sovereign Hill to dress up in 1850s attire and pretend to be an early settler during the Victorian gold rush. Great times (I love playing dress-ups). A couple of weeks ago, I returned to Ballarat (in a different capacity) for a weekend away to celebrate the launch of Broadsheet's 'Restaurant Ballarat'.
I recently spent a long weekend in Hobart, Tasmania (or Tassie, as we say in Australia). It was my first time there and I really didn't know what to expect. Some people say it's a bit dreary, but if you like fresh air, good food and stunning nature, it's heaven.
We all know that bananas are good for us. But what about the peel? The peel actually contains a heap of beneficial nutrients (so much so, that some people eat it). It has also been widely used throughout history to heal and rejuvenate skin.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to float around weightless in space? I haven’t been to space (although I’d totally be up for it), but I have experienced weightlessness while ‘floating’ in a 'pod'. Coupled with sensory deprivation, it was a totally new experience.
Earlier this year, I travelled to Thailand to spend a month at Por Promin Muay Thai Camp in Hua Hin. It was one of the best experiences in my life so far. Tough? Yes. Rewarding? Incredibly. Not just because of what I learnt (and the increase in my fitness); I also met some great people.
It was 6:15am when I rocked up to Winter Olympian Steph Prem's Premium Performance pop-up Pilates studio to try out her bootcamp class. I'd downed a shot of leftover cold drip from my fridge before leaving the house (too early to show my pillow-creased face in a cafe) and was waiting for the caffeine to kick in. I was feeling pretty tired and stale.
