During winter, my skin goes quite pale. It can also start to look a bit dry from the windy weather and time spent in front of heaters. When I'm not working I prefer to go makeup-free and just stick to moisturiser, but I was doing an interview today and wanted my skin to have a healthy, dewy glow.
It’s no secret that Muay Thai and boxing fight gyms can be a breeding ground for pimple-causing bacteria. Gloves with a sweaty interior still soggy from the day before. Mats coated in a film of goodness-knows-what from people’s feet.
After spending another week up in Perth for work, I was planning on putting together a little guide on what and where I ate. But for some reason (not at all because I have a sweet tooth), my food photos consisted mainly of desserts.
Tribe Perth really is built for the modern traveller. I stayed there when I was up in Perth a couple of weeks back. With a fair bit of work to do while I was there, Tribe made the whole experience an absolute breeze.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
